Some of us Thought it might be nice to have a thread to kind of list off who is who's waifu.
The concept is simple really, just say in this thread who your waifu is.

Just for starters, this is Minagi Tohno

I'm in a bit of a predicament. I can't decide what to do and want a second opinion.
I've been in love with my husbando for two years. In that time, I either love him from afar, or use (female) surrogate characters to romance him in my place. For one because I don't want to mix 2D and 3D much cause it looks weird, and for two because there's no evidence that he's gay.
But lately I've been rewatching his show and giving that more consideration…
I now understand my husbando is similar to Shinji Ikari. So lonely and desperate for affection that I think sexuality isn't even part of the equation anymore; I think he would be with anyone that was nice to him.
What do I do with that information? He is very vulnerable and I have a lot of power here. I do love him and it does feel a lot better to imagine him holding MY hand instead of one of my surrogate's hands, but I just don't know if it's moral and ethical to make this weak person into a homosexual. I feel like I'm taking advantage of him. I don't think faggotry is healthy.
It feels so right and so wrong. I don't know what to do. I really want the best for him, and I don't know if that means to let him live a straight life or to be with me.

What I'm getting at is, very few characters are actually canon gay. How did you decide to make your husbando gay? How do I rationalize it?

I originally posted this on 8chan /mai/ because it's faster and I'm kind of stressing out and want an answer now, but the first reply was so retarded I'll just have to be patient here instead.

In a general sense, I think what your conscience is telling you is already the right answer. With that said, there's some leeway or perhaps loophole you can take advantage of, but it would help a lot to know who's your husbando in the first place, because things can be really different from a series to another and from one character to another, specially if they have more than 1 source (i.e. more leeway if the character has been in manga + anime + game, etc.)
>> No. 20760 [Edit]
I don't have a husbando but I think sexual orientation doesn't have much to do with being able to fall in love with someone even if you aren't lonely or desperate.

Also if it did there's the viewpoint that humans are bisexual by default anyways which does have a few facts backing it up.
I also find it hard to believe that you're just born with a sexual orientation since that view doesn't account for changes, I was "normal" in my childhood but now I'm not really interested in any person. Does that mean I was born hetero and I'm now pretending to be disgusted by women (how the human body works in general) or that I was pretending to be interested in girls as a kid?
I can only speak for myself and some shit I've read. I wouldn't know how it works for other people.

>I don't think faggotry is healthy.
Why?
>I really want the best for him, and I don't know if that means to let him live a straight life or to be with me.
I don't really see the difference between a homosexual and a heterosexual life except "our" society looking down onto the first but that's the same for "waifuism" in general which they also claim is not healthy.

Everywhere I go outside of TC and maybe 8chan it seems like people with waifus aren't exactly real. Whether they ignore the typical rules of having a waifu entirely or change them to suit their personal convenience, they all seem fake. I've even talked to some of them that say their love is true but their actions and choices say otherwise, even their words in some cases.

So this leads to my question, are honest people with waifus a dying breed? With the rise of the (awful) meme, do you think there can even be any more in the future?

Is the practice of having a waifu dead if not nearly?

This is the sad truth. No matter what is used by default, it will end up being misused by hijackers of waifu culture. It's not a personal thing though, it happens to anything that has, is and will be hijacked by normals in their insatiable quest for attention.

I've noticed the same thing over the past year or two. The "old guard" are thinning out more and more and many of those who are taking their place fall short of the bar set by their predecessors. Casuals/memers and the seemingly serious but actually pretty phony types you describe have always been around, but nowadays it really feels like they're the majority by far. Especially the latter, from what I've seen - all appears to be on the up and up when you first encounter them, but press even a little and it rapidly becomes clear that they're hardly any better than the "mai fav wifu of the week xD" idiots. It's a weird state of affairs.

It does suck feeling alone in places you used to feel were your home and filled with other people who all understood eachother on the relevant levels. And yeah, nowhere is this more evident than in having a waifu.

It's just a meme marketing maneuver to get five minutes of fame and some new hires. The fact they even have to state that you can only send in one application with one character, and their only evidence of love they ask for being a single sentence proves they don't give a shit and are more than welcoming of normie posers.

Very sad that the very first legal acknowledgement of waifuism is just some normies having a laugh as fucking usual. I wish everyone would die except me and wizchan.

Isn't it the opposite? Stuff like
>Gatebox would also like to know how you and your anime crush became acquainted, how you became a couple, where you proposed, your happiest memory together, and whether the bride will be keeping her maiden name or adopting her husband’s surname.
sounds like they do care somewhat.
Also they probably really have to, not because they think it's a joke but because of other people trying to and then complaining because it was nowhere mentioned that you can't have more than one. I agree with the other point and that it's a marketing maneuver considering it's limited.


But I just looked it up on their site and there it says, they don't care if you're already married or not. So, yeah, they don't seem to value the genuineness that much or rather just don't treat it the same as a 3D relationship, which is unfortunate.
I really wouldn't call the posers normies though, going out of their way to do that and posing in general doesn't seem very normal to me.

It being free and them also sending that stuff overseas is nice though (and probably the reason why you can't submit more than one).

>Very sad that the very first legal acknowledgement of waifuism is just some normies having a laugh as fucking usual.
It doesn't really affect your marriage status and in general isn't really official, so I wouldn't call it a legal acknowledgement and I wonder where the article got the legally-binding from. You can only get those benefits if you're a Gatebox employee and we don't know the details on that in the contract.

How do you deal with degenerate porn of your waifu, specially gangrape doujinshi ones? Do you feel bad when you see them? Do you ignore them?

Maybe you could try installing a website filter to prevent you from giong back there? Some are so easy as to simply ask for a URL and they block it entirely for you requiring you to unblock it if you want to go back, in that time you take to unblock you can catch yourself before you go back. You will also need to exercise some old fashioned discipline. I would link to one i used but it I used it years ago and I don't remember the name of it.

In my waifu's case 40% of her pixiv fanart is porn and most of the rest is at least suggestive.
It hurts because she isn't a lewd girl, she just has a lot of fanservice scenes where she feels obligued to do lewd things because it's the only way to resolve the situation. She is more prude than her friends who don't get sexualized nearly as much.

I've given up all hope. I've run out of anything to believe in. My love for her has transformed into a desire to tell her I love her, no, to see her and talk to her, or at least to be on the same earth as her for a start, that consumes me more than anything else. Just to get a chance to talk with her, I would do absolutely anything, anything, just let me see the real her...I would even live in a fake world with her, because any world with her in it would feel way more real than the one I am in right now. After all, who are they to tell me what is real?

But no, I have no powers to bring her to me, the technology is not up to snuff to successfully live in fake worlds and removing memories of the "real" one, I am simply left to suffer here without her. I am left in a sea of emptiness and my soul is screaming all the time. I don't want to sound like "I have loved her all these years and got nothing in return for it", but my strength and devotion for her cannot overpower the cold relentless realities that don't move.

I want her. She is all my happiness. But I am without her in this world. She cannot say "I love you too", nor could she even reject my advances if she wanted to due to not possessing free will. Like my happiness, she does not exist, and I simply want to die. I cannot live with her in this world no matter how much I want it, and I cannot live without her. I simply want to die.

Who was your waifu and why are you here?
>> No. 20459 [Edit]
I wake up every day with her at my side and it is fulfilling because to me she is there. I use imagination and it gets deeper the more I do. It has this effect even if I know it is imagination. Years ago before knowing about my waifu and imagination, I had similar pain because of the desire to experience a significant other with the 5 senses.

If technology could create an illusion, I would probably not use it much. Maybe use it like I watch art, but not live in a VR world.

As I see it, the mind has equal if not higher capacity for creating experiences of whatever you want. Unlike the nearest technology, imagination is deeply integrated with your whole being. For this reason I do not like to say "visualization" because it captures only the visual. Imagination is often not recognized for its powers, but in spiritual contexts it has always been known and many methods revolves around it.

Killing yourself makes you miss the opportunity to experience her this way. Maybe the pain can motivate you to explore this capacity of mind to experience your waifu.
>> No. 20743 [Edit]
I know your feel OP. I myself don't have a waifu "per-se" but I actually think 2D>3D
To me, 2D girls express their feelings in a way that seems more realistic that 3D girls do. Looking at it, I can't help but wish they were real, and you keep wishing, dreaming and begging to it to be real, but that's impossible, it's just fiction.

Then you start to think and believe: is something not real just because we can't see it or feel it? Or because we can't prove it?

Then you start to think in things like the Multiverse, parallel universes and finally the many worlds interpretetation, which suggest that all possible alternate histories and futures are real.

it may sound desperate to try to find a reason or clue which suggest that they are real, but hey, it's good enough to keep going.

I remember that quite a while ago, /mai/ was discussing what the official symbol for Waifuism should be. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the old thread that was discussing this topic. I thought it was a cool idea at the moment. You guys were saying it was one way to spot out "waifriends" in public. It's also one way to distinguish those that take waifuism serious from those who don't. Plus, from my experience I've learned that a concept is twice as powerful/sturdy when it has a name and symbol. We already have the name "Waifuism", now we need our symbol. Don't know if any of you who were discussing it are still around, but I'll ask anyway (This is directed for anybody who recently got here and maybe perhaps lurkers who have any suggestions or remarks as well).

"Does this symbol still stand as our official symbol?" Or have you guys perhaps thought of ways to amend this symbol? Have you guys decided to just drop and forget this for certain reasons? Or are you guys perhaps indifferent about this?

Again, I personally thought this was a good idea. I'm all for having a symbol.

Hi.

There's a strong possibility that was me. I haven't heard of anybody else who's really content with this symbol being used as one to represent Waifuism.


>>19979

>advertising to strangers that you consider that part of your identity

I don't use that flag as a way to advertise anything. That flag is for me and me alone. It helps me get up in the morning to look at that symbol and know I'm not alone in how I feel about a fictional character. Whenever those rare occasions pop up where someone confesses their love for their Waifu, it warms me inside because I completely understand how you feel.

That symbol is something you guys came up with and it became the closest thing you guys to a symbol that represents genuine love toward a fictional character (regardless of it's origins).

Why did I pick this symbol?

i admire your patriotism and devotion brother

personally i think using a symbol to identify waifuism is a good idea. symbols and icons have a power to solidify and consolidate a groups identity, but perhaps even more importantly, the identity of the individual. although i think having a symbol like this is a nice means of being able to recognize people belonging to this ideological confederation, i think the real value in a symbol like this is that in wearing it, adorning, or just keeping it with us, it can be a stabilizing reminder of our identity.

No, I meant exactly what I typed. I mean that I hope somebody has that character as a husbando/waifu because said character seems like they deserve to have somebody love them and hold them dear to their heart. Perhaps my wording was off.

>said character seems like they deserve
This could make for another thread, but... Wouldn't a character deserve an optimal outcome that is concordant with the world they live in, one where we don't fit in? This is a fragile topic, but at least regarding my case I'm think that my waifu deserves more than what I can provide in a three-dimensional world, specially since I don't have (and would probably never perfect) the skills to provide such gratification, like animating or drawing her in her fictional world, being happy in what she considers bliss, in at least a decent approximation for the original work she is from. I will try though, but I already know this is all in my head.
>Perhaps my wording was off.
I see. I understood it wrong then. I assumed you meant appreciation for a character also meant wishing for them to be engaged in an appreciative relationship. As in, I can like a character, that doesn't mean I went them to be betrothed cross-reality.

I wondered today, where do people with waifus that normally post go?
They post up until a certain time and then disappear.

Do they find another community? There aren't too many that I have seen for people who are serious about this so where is there for them to go?
Do they break up with their waifu?
Do they get bored of posting and simply lurk from then on?
Do they kill themselves?
Do they live happily ever after with their waifu? (I hope this last one is the case.)

What becomes of them? I love reading their posts and seeing their dedication to their beloveds and it makes me sad to see them suddenly just disappear one day.

I doubt this thread will get any responses from waifu-friends that dropped off the planet so I suppose this would simply get ideas and proposals as responses.

Pretty much this. Unless I feel there's a topic here that I feel like I feel like I can give good input on or contribute to the discussion, I prefer to just not post.
I'm sure there are many people who actually did end up getting breaking up, getting bored, etc., but lack of post speed doesn't mean necessarily that we've all moved on or anything. Some of us just don't have anything relevant to say.

Because of shown dislike or prejudice towards things not deemed the norm and people who claim to be from somewhere else. I agree with the sentiment though.
