What about your waifu did you fall in love with?

With Hanako, it was her shy nature that initially attracted me to her, and it was her kind and caring personality that I really fell in love with.

I know some of you that know me from the IRC may see me as a loud and outspoken guy, but what really gives me joy in life is taking it easy and just spending time with those that I care about, and Hanako gives me that happiness.

I guess she's like a role model to me, she's everything I wish I could be. But I'm also a lot like her, basically would be if I was just a little bit less serious. I love how she never takes anything seriously, and yet can still combat a problem with ease, with nothing but wit and willpower. And she knows she can tackle any problem, because she never lets it have power over her. Even when she faces a genuine challenge she mostly acts over dramatic, like she can't even take that seriously. Life is far too cruel to take seriously, it's better to disregard it, make fun of it even! Laughter is the most powerful weapon man has, it can crumble empires.
I'd love to be more like that, but I always get serious about stuff. There's something that can always manage to piss me off and I can't help but to rage at it. I think I'm improving though, in fact I think people admire how laid back I am. Maybe my standards are too high for myself.
I really don't care if she was a FotM, she's the only one I've loved for over 6 years now, nobody's come close. At this point I'm not even sure if she's more of a waifu or just a best friendu.

I gotta be honest here I thought she was great fapping material at first lol (I must have a thing for aerial roller-bladeing sex) That was before I discovered yuri but for some reason I always came back to Ringo-san cause she was the best no one else can come close for me and while our relationship is very open (she still has a thing for 2 guys from her cannon material) no one else fills me with a more burning desire and probably will always be the same

another thing after being with Ringo-san cause it is always so exciting 3D girlfriends always are boring now so I give that up

It occurred to me that there is a similarity between some of the concepts of ancestral worship and that of a waifu.

Obviously, the main historical religious and familial elements of these traditions do not especially apply, but I thought there were a couple of interesting parallols.

Firstly, there is the concept that the relationship with these individuals (including ancestors who died way before the individual) is real, valid and existent despite not being meaningfully reciprocal. Or rather, the relationship is seen as having reciprocity despite there being only one actor in "reality".

Secondly, there is the set of ritualised behaviours and attitudes carried out by the individual alongside the relationship. By engaging in certain thoughts and patterns of behaviour, some ritualistic, the relationship was reinforced and made more real in the mind of the living individual, and therefore the whole thing became more real (this isn't the exact wording they would use, but I think there is a clear element of this).

These rituals and the relationship are also thought to be positive for the ethics and character of the individual practising them, once again similar to many discussions of a waifu here.

Perhaps more significantly, these clearly also served the purpose of making certain concepts real. By keeping alive the knowledge of and a set of relationships with the ancestors, they themselves were kept more meaningfully existent into future generations. Similarly, an entire higher concept, that of the family, was seen as being wholly created and sustained by these actions.

Obviously, there were other religious elements involved, some of which were almost certainly, in most cases (though likely not all) more important than the above. Still, I think this is an interesting example of how society (most societies, even) accept to some extent a set of relationships (between living and dead) to different degrees.

Beyond that, we can see that some elements of waifu culture have commonalities with some social norms. This makes me think further about the arbitrary was society divides acceptable and unacceptable.

I wish I had more to say but this is a really great post and I found it more immediately relatable to my experience than some others previously posted. Might help that my waifu is dead, too.

Waifus, insofar as fully virtual entities, do work particularly well as ghosts in that Derridean sense of alleged re-apparitions of something that was never there to begin with: waifus do not have a stable identity (by the means of our materialistic ontological commitment), but instead get endlessly mirrored through the reproduction of their source media. Moreover: they do not exist as waifus in any iteration of their source, but only after they get restructured as beloved in the minds of some of us, filling our particular romantic needs and expectations; they thus stop being an alterity and, like Derrida says, become somehow somatized as a necessary part of our beings that follows us everywhere, as long as we remain functionally the same (as their lovers)... which is why I prefer the term doppelgänger (walking double) for them.

Yes, they can, they can have many as they want, I don't really care, since I don't force my opinions on others.

However, I prefer to only have just one, since it's more simple and I don't need to exhaust more energy to love another girl. And the loyalty is much stronger in having only one soulmate than having multiple partners.
>> No. 15754 [Edit]
On TV I often heard about (normal) people who are in a releationship with more than one person, most of the time it involves 3 of them.
I believe that those people actually love each other and I don't see anything wrong with that, but on the internet people who make up their "waifu harems" are annoying because almost always they are not serious about their love and passion.
>> No. 15755 [Edit]
I'd say they could, there's no reason why someone couldn't fall in love with multiple people, in fact it happens quite often.

Ignoring the people who do it to 'fit in' or just count waifus as their favourite character, I don't think any less of people who actually love all the girls in their harem, I just don't think they really have a waifu. I think it involves a different kind of love entirely then what I , at-least, attribute to 'waifuism'

I was hesitant to post this topic because I don't really see it as something that will discuss our waifus but it has stayed long in my mind and I needed to get it out, so here I go.

Speaking from hindsight, were any signs in your past life experiences that could have indicated or predicted that you will have a waifu instead of a 3D girlfriend?

I expect that I might not have a warm reception for posting this, but you were wondering.

I was raped as a child. I don't think that this necessarily the biggest factor in desiring 2D love, but it would be wrong of me to say that it wasn't involved at all.

Has anyone else come close to falling for someone, only to find out that they turn out to be a PMSing bitch?

I met Iori almost a year ago now. Before I had experienced love with a Waifu. I began to think fondly of her, until the extra Kokoro eps were released. Her character became unrealistically angsty, and I couldn't think of her as the same Iori chan that I used to know. I was definitely hurt. I didn't think I would consider anyone to be my waifu again.

Thank RNGesus that I met my Onodera<3, and found what love should really be like.

Has anyone had similar experiences to mine. How did you cope? Anyone try to get revenge after supporting a character that betrayed you?

if you become attached to your waifu before all her cannon material is released she can change drastically

at least that's where i think the OP was going with that...

i used to think askuka from evangelion was cute until the show got dark and she became an empty shell. it was disappointing but it wasn't like what OP is talking about feeling betrayed

I can sadly relate to characters changing in heartrending ways and the pain and feelings of betrayal that accompany it. It`s not exactly the same situation, as it isn`t something which can be blamed on her and she`s still my waifu and I`m determined to try and support her no matter what, but it is related to characters changing in their cannon. In case you aren`t familiar with the vn she`s from, here`s the gist of it: In the first two chapters of the vn which came out years ago, she`s presented as a strong, proud, noble knight which I came to love her for. For these past 3 years, I had seen her as being practically invincible. Then the last vn of the trilogy came out and was translated in december last year and with it a certain out of the blue revelation that was simply there to shoehorn in a h-scene: She got raped multiple times by a succubus with a big focus on it happening over 40 times. To say I was hurt would be an understatement. Although I never was angry at her in any way, I did feel betrayed. It seemed like everything I had ever thought of her was was a lie, I was crushed.
As to how I cope with it, as much as I`d like to honestly say that I`m completely over it and that I totally accept the facts as they are and i`m fine with it after so long, it would be a lie as I`m not landed there yet. I find myself mostly trying to avoid thinking of it currently, although her being almost universally called a slut now makes it quite difficult. When I try to rationalize it, I`m torn between two interpretations of it, which is either she suffers greatly from it or she doesn`t really mind it, which are both extremely painful to me for different reasons. But in the end, I remind myself that no matter what, she`ll always be my waifu as long as I love her and that nothing can change that.

I felt the same way when watching Waifu Simulator. -ahem- Sorry, I meant Sword Art Online. Asuna seemed like a powerful female lead at first, which is a welcome change, but eventually she becomes an extremely dependent love object with nothing to contribute. It was nice to see her soft side at first but they took it too far, and ruined a potentially good character. I didn't really have to cope with the change, since I just lost interest in her.

That was conquest. Arturia was defending her lands from invaders, and as a consequence had to funnel resources from villages to support her troops. Which would indirectly lead to innocent deaths. Defending your people against aggressors and systematically exterminating while you engage in empire-building are entirely different.

I think True Neutral would be the most accurate for her, as someone that prefers to be left alone most of the time. As far as incidents go, she has both helped promote one (an act leaning slightly towards 'evil') and helped resolve a few (acts leaning slightly towards 'good'). Her motivations for getting involved were never moral-related and often revolved around research.

Wow, I didn't think I'd have to give such extensive thought to such a simple question.
I'm going to have to go with Neutral Evil, for he spends the entire game only interested in procuring profit from the war surrounding him that decides the fate of the earth's populace. The only reason he is even in the company of the protagonists is because one of their party members owes him a great sum of money and because he wishes to sell them overpriced armor (that is implied to be stolen). He'd certainly be selling to the opposing faction if the opportunity arose without feeling any guilt despite their ultimate goal of global genocide.

Recently I was thinking a lot about what I would have to do to join my waifu in her dimension, eventually I came up with something along the lines of reincarnation. I think it might not be so wayward that you join your waifu in the afterlife, since you obviously leave the realms of the third dimension, at least I believe that it might be so.
So /mai/ I was wondering if any of you have other or even simliar ideas of an afterlife with your Waifu, or what your opinions are regarding this subject.

Why would you want to live forever? I don't want to stay forever in this world, eventually I'd get tired of everything. No one knows what it's like to be dead, but as long as it's different from being alive I'd still be fine with it.

I want to explore the stars. I want to witness technological innovations. I want to see what anime is like in 12014. I want to be there when we terraform another planet. I want to learn all the languages. I want to live in a perfect simulation with my waifu for a dozen millenniums.

I would likely never run out of things to do, and even if I did I enjoy repitition so that's no issue for me.

Is there anyone else out there searching for their waifu?

I visit her occasionally and see other boards where people have improved themselves and gotten pure satisfaction from being devoted to their waifu/husbando. I feel I lack direction in my life and wish I felt so strongly about anything.

I almost felt something like what others describe, but her source material was so terrible (and turned out to be smutty) so it killed any attraction I might have initially felt. And shouldn't it be an immediate thing anyway?

Anyway, yeah... That's my life. Still searching for The One.
