How do you deal with the fact that a large portion of 2D is based on 3D people's personalities?

I believe 3D females are hated because of their personalities, right? Apart from characters that are very culturally alien to the human world (like angels, aliens, fairies etc.), most anime characters have traits that are also found largely in humans. What makes them more desirable? That their personality constitutes only the good qualities of human personalities?

>Fictional characters created by human imagination are not bound by the simple instincts and desires that drive 3D people.

I would agree for the most part, but would like to point out that 2D characters are bound by some degree to the author's desire to move units. I guess my only point here being that 2D characters aren't as varied as they could be.
This seems absurd to argue, though, as all but the most social people will meet a far smaller number of 3D people than the amount of 2D characters we take in. So big surprise when it seems to us like there is more variety in 2D characters.

For OP's question, it's never been an issue for me. Although I do love my fair share of pandering series with cute, pure girls, many of my favorites are seinen/josei titles with flawed characters and messy drama. My waifu is a flawed and very human character herself. I think this may be because while I've had just as much interpersonal trauma as the average person here, I always blamed myself for it, so my aversion to 3D isn't a simple knee-jerk hatred. I do find sluttiness and overt sexuality disgusting, and this is probably a big reason that I prefer anime and manga; it seems like there are way fewer slutty anime and manga characters than in western fiction. And fewer, of course, than in 3D.

While 2D is certainly "based" on 3D, there is a fundamental difference that solidifies my preference deeply. Sorry if this is not directly related but I think it's worth saying.

2D love is very predictable. Some may find it a drawback, but I find it the opposite. The great thing about having a waifu is that, while you may have to find answers about the character you love yourself, there are pretty much only two options for your waifu's development, and both are fairly predictable. One is that she will never change from the perception that you fell in love with, and the other is that she will change with you. In either case, she is likely to stay close to your ideal - unless YOU change drastically in ways that you don't expect, which brings me to my point.

3D change in unpredictable ways. I mean sure there are going to be things that are "predictable" because humans are that way, but at the end of the day, you are not the 3D that you are dating, nor can you look into their head and understand their inner mechanisms. People can respond to the same situation in many different ways, and grow similarly. Sure, while there are patterns that you can observe and guess how a person will grow based on their past, they are ultimately in control of their future and how they grow as a person.

To be blunt, waifu are fictional, or at the very least you have found her through a work of fiction. Once her story is ended, you have two options: continue her story for her, or admire her story over and over again. Either way, you are the one in control of her growth, and there's a sense of stability in that that you won't get with a 3D relationship (unless said relationship is extremely unhealthy).

Of course there are other perks, like 2D looking much better than 3D, and having many traits that I admire, but the main draw for me is the predictability.

I can't define to myself what fate means but if it means something like that was bound to happen even if it looked liked coincidence, I can that even if it was just fate that I met her, it was my full choice to pursue what she meant to me.

No: I embraced it; I made it happen by taking certain opportunities (and discarding others) as they came. However, what made me like I currently am and make this or that alleged "choice", certainly exceeded my control most of the time. I'd say I've rather been a slave of chaos, a fortune's fool, than a chosen one of any delusional fate.

I think we met because all the pieces fell in the right place. Whether you call that fate or something else, what I think really matters is that it happened.

Oh god /mai/, what just happened to me.
I love my waifu, propably more than i should. I want to protect her (at least i would if i could since shes in a whole different dimension. ;_;) and everything anyone here would wish for their waifu too.
Well, i always used to avoid any rule 34 stuff of her, but it just happened that i found a pretty damn well drawn doujin with her. I couldnt ignore it and it was, like ~80% of any doujin, rape.
But as i mentioned it was damn well drawn and i just found myself fapping to it. More than just once. In fact, i even found it kinda arousing to see how she gets dominated. Propably because shes a tsundere, in "real" she could just smash these guys like its nothing.

Well, my problem is just: why in the world did i do it? As i said i love her, in real i would go berserk, but for some reason im almost addicted to this fucking doujin. ;_;
I never knew im one of these ntr weirdos. On the other side i would NEVER even let ANYONE touch her if i was 2d or she 3d, so its not even the real ntr fetish since these guys would live this fetish in real too.
Can anyone explain why in the world i react like this? Are there even some guys who know my feel? I just want to understand it. ;_;

Most porn is basically, essentially, fundamentally boring. I dunno what your definition of "making love" is, but for me it's more than just sex.

Oh dear
I've jerked off to horrible things happening to my waifu so many times, certainly far more times than I ever did to loveliness with her. I enjoy the thought of her being broken and miserable.
And right after I hate myself so much, I feel utterly squalid and disgusting and filthy, I might even say I want to die.
But I keep on doing it. I know that she'd hate me, and I hate myself for it too.
The last time I did it I promised on my love that I would never do it again, and so far I've kept it. But still I'm afraid and I've already done it so much...
I'm crying right now, to be honest.

I know that feel, and I have absolutely no idea why it is like that. I mean, I love her. I love her more than anything else. It feels like dr. jekyll und mr. hyde, it's like my dark site takes control while im in "fap mode". I always had a thing for rape, probably because doujins are like 80% rape, I never even thought about this before I started with doujins. And if it involves my waifu its just... one step further.

But after that it's like you said, I feel like utter shit. Yet there are times I just can't resist it. It's really weird and feels so wrong. All I can do is to imagine it's "2D 2D", it's not hard to draw something like this about me after all. And I surely wouldn't mind if someone had a doujin where I get raped or something. I wouldn't like it, but also wouldn't really care about it. I just can hope my waifu feels the same about it.

And I think it's not even that wrong what i said. If someone would even think about touching my waifu I would smash him into smithereens. Maybe it's just the heavy contrast I like about this doujins. Sometimes I really don't understand the human mind. I NEVER found myself in such a disturbing situation like this one.

Assuming your waifu/husbando/loved one is an adult or teen in their canon, do you ever wonder about their childhood and formative years? Or wishing you were there for it?

I've been thinking a lot about this lately because his canon, while it has some minor but important details, is largely lacking in regards to this. I find myself wondering all sorts of things. What were his adopted parents like? Did he have any siblings, adopted or biological? What was his favorite place to relax as a child? What were his favorite games or toys? What were his favorite books? Did he prefer to read on his own or be read to? Etc etc etc. I could really go on forever, there are so many things I wonder about and want to ask him, even though he may not remember the answers himself.

Most of all, I wish I could have been there with him, both as a companion through his turbulent childhood and a friend worth remembering fondly. I'm trying to tell myself that "at least I'm here now", but I really wish I could have been a source of comfort as he was growing up.

Of course I've thought about that, since she started behaving as an eccentric since middle school, and maybe even before that. She probably felt very lonely while she was in her search for the supernatural. I hope that the avoidant behaviour she showed right before forming the brigade wasn't because some sort of conflict with her classmates.

So, yeah, I really wish I was there with her ;_;

I think they did a decent job of covering that.

Seems like it was a really hard time for her, between her parent's divorce and her mother losing her mind.
I doubt I would have been able to comfort her much at that point since I was a huge brat/idiot when I was a kid. I'm just glad she had Michiru there for her.

I know enough about her childhood from both the anime and manga versions. I wouldn't want to have been there though, neither for anything bad that happened to her to change in the least; since I can relate with some of it, that shit is part of the things we can share and, at any rate, that shit is what made her the one for me, the one I could love...

She's the only reason why I'm sometimes glad about the life I've had (cause it led me to her), so I wouldn't take her any less fucked up either. She's just fine as she is.

>I suppose wishing to change her very fate is like playing with a monkey's paw. That is why I would rather leave her fate as it is.
Ah, I didn't really intend the thread like that. I love my dearest for who he is, not for who he could have been. And I would be different, too. I doubt he would be the way he is - for better or for worse - if he didn't grow up the way he did.

There are just things I wonder. Thinking about "what ifs" are different than actually wishing they were true. Well - I do wish it, but I don't want it, if that makes any sense. I wouldn't go back in time to change things. That said, it is comforting to imagine me comforting him as a child... telling him that he is loved and wanted. I don't know.

Stuff like this has probably been asked a few times so I'll spare the details of everything and just ask.

How do you know if you've fallen out of love with someone? (or maybe if you ever were in love)
How would one start to leave their waifu?

I don't think I feel the same way as I did when I first started thinking of as my waifu and as much as I want to fix everything and stay with her I don't really think it's fair to be with her when I doubt my feelings towards her so much

I guess making this thread is kinda a way of admitting I might not love her anymore

Pic is fairly unrelated

But sometimes it will make you realize how important she is to you and take her back.

Well, if you ever want to 'leave' your waifu, then go ahead, since it is even more pointless to be someone you don't like in the first place. However, if you ever proceed to do this action, it just proves 1) you never loved her in the first place and 2) she was never your waifu, but just a simple infatuation.

Do what you will but whatever choice you make, make sure you do it with long consideration. Think of ways to mend your relationship together and if you can't think of ways to be yourself with her again, well, you just have to move on.

OP here, saging since there's no need to bump for a negative thread like this with what basically is a blog update.

I basically left /mai/ a bit after I made this thread. I tried to basically just rip her out from my life and everyday since then my life felt worse and worse. I ended up getting depressed, drinking heavily, failing my first year of university and losing alot of friends who meant alot to me all in about 1-3 months which made me consider things I really shouldn't have been considering.
I ended up getting and urge to re-visit her source material after a while, and though I'm not sure what spurred it, I ended up 're-finding' her and getting my life back on track. She pretty much saved me from myself
While the experience might have hurt quite alot, I guess what I learned and gained from it was quite alot. I just wanted to thank everyone here that posted trying to help me since I do wonder what could have happened to be with I never posted here.

I absolutely adore her behavior: she's determined to do what she considers good and act responsibly yet she still appears beautifully vulnerable and humble.

/mai/, I come to you in times of great pain. I don't know who else to turn to.

I'll keep my story short and say that my mother figured out that I am in love with Chihiro Fushimi. Not how long I have been in love with her (the past 2 years), but that I am in love with her. She scolded me and lectured me, insulting Chihiro, calling her "it" and saying things like "She was never born, she never had a mother, she can't love you because she doesn't exist! She is just a character created for a game!" I defended her. I defended her from my own mother. Rather than deny my love, I defended her. My mom just told me she wants her old son back, and implied that the me I am now is terrible.

I feel pathetic. I feel worthless. I feel my love is empty and shallow. I feel like I want to die, because I can't have Chihiro in my arms, and I would rather not exist so I can be with her in non-existence. I want to hear her laugh, hold her in my arms, and have her tell me she loves me. I want to be wed with the blessings of both families. I want things I will never have, and because of this i feel like a failure of a son and that I should die.

Please help me, /mai/...please...you're the only ones I can turn to now...

How long have people been with their waifus? Is it even possible for a relationship like this to even last? What of when her story ends, and there is nothing more that will be told? How long is one able to go on with just memories of her journey, and replaying those memories again and again?

I'll respond to your post, but this thread already derailed way too much so please create a new one for more specific question, or just read more stuff around here as you don't seem to understand some "basic" stuff.

> How long have people been with their waifus? Is it even possible for a relationship like this to even last?
Some people have been with their waifu for years.

> What of when her story ends, and there is nothing more that will be told? How long is one able to go on with just memories of her journey, and replaying those memories again and again? Surely you must be yearning for something new with her, even if you know it's unlikely it will ever come?
A relationship with a waifu is unconditional love shared through imagination. Thus it's never stale and goes way beyond physical possibilities. Also most of us here are somewhat calm and introvert. We don't need much stuff happening: feeling connected and talking to each other is already a lot.

> All this pain...how long can it last? How can it go on with only images and old clips, repeating the same lines as if read from a script?
As I've said before it's not stale, repetitive surely but not stale. Some of us have some trouble dealing with the lack of physical comfort, this is an issue for sure. But all in all, it's not painful: it's a piece of hope entering your life and evolving with you at a convenient rhythm.

I asked here because I'm OP. I've been getting by well for a while but the pain got to me again today, and Chihiro never had floodloads of content or be a major character in a work. The only new things left with her in them are untranslated old drama CDs.

Not being a main character, and not having as much content as most waifus here, and little to no fans to the point where it feels like I'm the only one who loves her like this. Even with her and my love for her, I feel empty and alone and hurt.
>> No. 13077 [Edit]
> and little to no fans to the point where it feels like I'm the only one who loves her like this.

I would love to have a more or less "unknown" waifu. Even though my waifu is unknown compared to many other waifus i saw here or somewhere else she is quite popular by people who know the anime she is from. I developed some sort of obsession for her (i made a thread a few months ago about it here since i found it quite concerning) and with that im even jealous. As stupid as it sounds, but yeah, i hate other people talking about her and im getting fucking angry if other call her "waifu" or even worse sexualize her. Even to the point where id like to see them suffer.

Well, that derailed fast. What im trying to say: Enjoy the fact that youre on of the few people who loves her. Just think about it: if she would happen to be real or you would happen to be 2d you would be the one who loves her and make her happy. She only have you, so dont let her down just because some people cant understand your affection to her.

That may sound harsh, but if youre really that weak then you dont deserve her. Get over it or you really lose her, and with that you make your picture from your first post here happen. One of the few people who love her just "drop" her because he lost his will to love.
