What are some downsides about your waifu? And what are some things other would consider as a downside but you like about her? And to make things even: What are things your waifu would dislike about you?

My waifu is pretty obsessed with her work. Im pretty sure she often would forget about everything (including me) for her work. But i think thats one of the things I really like about her. So this would answer my second question. The only thing i dont really like about her, is the fact that shes very self centered sometimes, so i think some squabblings here and there will happen. In my case it would be my crazy laziness. If it comes to this we are very different and i bet she will dislike this trait about me.

But other than that i think it may be a good thing that we are so different if it comes to work. She would kick me in the ass to do something and i would try to bring her to take things easy here and there and take a break.

I've been thinking recently about "waifu sharing", or more specifically, the people who hate it when they find someone else who has the same waifu as them.

I don't have much experience with this personally. I know there are people out there with the same waifu as me, but I don't hate them, nor have I come across a Kagurabro who hated me.

What bugs me is that there are people who are incredibly protective of their waifu. Obviously they are well within their right to do that, understandably so, but I don't get what they're trying to achieve when they tell someone to step off their waifu.

If someone were to tell that to me, what would they have me do? Get rid of the merchandise? The anime? The manga? The pictures I have on my computer? Quit my gym membership she inspired me to start up? Stop loving her altogether? Switch to someone else? Doing either of those last two would just more than likely open me up to more ridicule.

It's a mean-spirited thing to say to another waifubro. It's just as bad as saying "you're waifu a shit" in my view. I get that some people see their waifu as a girlfriend, but as much as they may treat her as such, it's a very different kind of relationship to a "standard" one. You have to take the positives with the potential negatives.

Honestly, I feel it's a waste of time and energy to get mad over it. Would it not be more beneficial if they talked about the character to the other person? That way they both might learn more about her by reading someone else's perspective on her. It's possible that they may have two completely different reasons as to why they love her so much, especially if the character is from a long-running franchise, or if they're more open to personal interpretation.

I just felt the need to vent this out of me. Thanks for reading my rant.

As someone who's "won" a waifu shitposting war that I didn't even want, I'd suggest that you don't do that. I have enough experience with dealing with other people who also like my darling to say that it's usually very easy to ignore them, if you somehow think that it's somehow too beta to try to get along with them.

Then again I'm not even sure if the guy I argued with even loved her, since he sure "fell out of love with her" fast when I started defending my love (read: got us both banned from 4chan). And that was after months of him telling me that I wasn't allowed to love her whenever I posted her in the threads for her series, so ignoring him didn't really work that time.

Internet drama is stupid and it won't make your waifu real, so just hope that you won't run into a shitposter who has decided to use her as an avatar or something.

I see it as insecurity when someone get's upset when they see someone else with the same waifu and has a problem with it. I personally think I'm a better husband than most regardless of my more serious flaws. If someone else has the same waifu I ain't going to get jealous or throw a tantrum because I know I'm the better one fit in the end. This might sound like I'm kissing my own ass here but my life experiences make me feel she prefers me over the rest but I'd not mind being friends even with someone with Rachel as their waifu I see it as a opportunity to talk with someone about her better.

I've known a few waifufags in the past that get really upset about seeing someone with the same waifu, I'd rather not be like them if I can't be confident in myself that I'm best for her than she deserves better.

I've never actually gotten into any arguments with other Chara bros. It's rare enough just to find someone else who has an even remotely positive opinion of her, let alone someone who actually has her as their waifu.
We seem to have this sort of unspoken agreement not to fight amongst ourselves, and I'd say there's some probably good reasons for that. The source material tends to be rather cryptic and ambiguous regarding Chara, and as a result, people can have some substantially different interpretations of her character. I like her because I think she's a genuinely good person who tried to do what was right, and didn't deserve all of the horrible things that happened to her. A lot of people hate her, because they think she's evil and always had some sort of malicious intent behind everything she did. Some people actually like her for that exact same reason, which I suppose does make me a little bit uncomfortable sometimes, but I don't make a big deal out of it, and neither do they.
I think most Chara bros probably agree on some level that part of liking Chara is being able to accept that one's "ideal" of her is largely just an interpretation, and that most of those interpretations are equally valid, considering what little information there actually is about her in the source material.

So how exactly do you go about deciding on your waifu's birthday if it wasn't officially released or do you guys just not celebrate it because it'd feel wrong etc.? Do you just settle with your anniversary and holidays?
It's been eating at me for the longest time.

I haven't actually decided on one yet.

Her name comes from a Greek word meaning "joy", so I tend to assume that she is of Greek descent, and because of this I have considered that maybe March 25th, Greece's independence day, would be suitable.

Her name was also given to the star previously known as Beta Canum Venaticorum on July 20th, so I have wondered if maybe that date would be more appropriate.

Her release date, 30th January 2009, is celebrated as her Birthdays.

But I'm still not sure how old she is.
Official age is 20.
She exists since 2009 that makes her 7 (8 next month).
I met her in 2013 when she was 20, is she 23 now, because it was 3 years ago?
Or is she 27?

My love for her game came before I fell in love with her, but now she makes the game for me. I enjoy it and I'm good at it, and I don't get sick of replaying it constantly.

I like some of the other Vocaloids but I rarely listen to anyone of them except Miku.
Miku might be the most mainstream Vocaloid but I like her.
Of course I still prefer Luka over anyone else.

375 (Not including crossovers and images with other Vocaloids)
That's a very small number but I don't need any more. I never felt like having a big collection gives me anything and I already have problems finding images in that folder.

I already have more Miku images and that folder is growing much faster. Still not very big, only 440 atm.

Today is my waifu's birthday. It's a special day that always gets to me a bit. I really can't stress how much she means to me, but I'm not very good at expressing myself. I might not have any friends, I might be a waste of a human life, the world may like to regularly take it's dumps on me, but in the end she'll always be there for me and it really helps. It's not much but I drew this for the day. Happy birthday Minagi.

I think they should be like:

>Only one waifu each time
>No 3D (Celebrities, movie characters, etc)
>No western animation/animal characters
>No alterations of the official cannon

I think 3DCGI videogame characters from non Japanese origin are ok, since they are also idealistic characters one can develop serious feelings for, they should be allowed.

I also believe one can change waifus, sometimes you can end up mixing a crush with love or simply the love does away.

As long as you're not using it like a meme buzzword (waifu game, 3DPD, no affection, using waifu on every fucking girl you see), it should be ok.
>> No. 20083 [Edit]
The shitty meme shit aside, the only real rule I follow is to treat my beloved with respect as you would any "real" person. If what you're doing wouldn't fly in a "real" relationship (having someone on the side, pining for another), why would you expect it to fly in a 2D relationship? Beyond this, all characters are unique as well, so it's really dependent on the particular relationship you're in.

If you're serious about it then you should respect and honor her as you would any other beloved person in your life. She/he is special! I'm only human so I sometimes find myself looking at people as I go about my day and I admit that my thoughts aren't always so pure I've found myself crushing on people I've come to know in the past, but with my beloved's help I get over it and I refocus on what really matters to me. I sort it out with her like you would in any healthy relationship. I'm not perfect, but my love is real. I want to become the person she deserves. I think these are the ideals we should strive for regardless of 2D or 3D. The last thing I want is for this to be a kind of "crutch" and to rationalize shitty behavior and to take advantage of the person I love in order to fulfill cheap emotional/sexual satisfactions in the short-term, while hurting her in the long-run. I've seen people dump their "waifus" as soon as some 3D bitch gives them a little attention or when a new flavor-of-the-month moe chara gets popular. Give me a break.

Frankly, I don't think that normalfag video really captures the essence of this kind of culture, nor does it describe the way we actually feel about it.

I'm pretty sure that video was the reason why many normalfags started thinking that this kind of culture is one big joke in the first place.

I don't have a waifu OP, so I'm not really qualified to comment on what it is like having one, or what it means to have one, however I do understand the concept of "moe" well and would like to offer a my own insight. Hopefully it my grant a little context.

For me, moe is about warmth and happiness, and vicariously fulfilling primal drives. I'm an adult man in my mid 20s, so at this stage of my life I have a number of paternal drives that, without children of my own, go unfulfilled. I watch shows that fall under the headers of CGDCT (cute girls doing cute things), moe, and slice of life, which tend to be interconnected.

The reason I watch a "moe" show like "Is the Order a Rabbit?", "Hanayamata", or the currently airing "Stella no Mahou" is because it gives me my dad jollies. These girls are sweet, earnest, playful, and simple, experiencing and exploring their childhood; these shows are built to play to my paternal drives. When I watch them engaging in their playful antics or struggle with different issues of their childhood, it fills me with warmth, and that warmth makes me happy. This is moe.

Although I am not a practicer of waifuism, nor do I ever intend to be, I do understand what it is like to have anime characters inspire a deep sense of warmth and happiness and can understand the bridge between "moe" and waifuism.

What do you think of Tumblr RP blogs of your waifu? Do you like to interact with them or pretend that it's actually your waifu answering? Or do you not bother with them at all?

Ian has a few RPers (personal favorites are idomaths, drianxmalcolm, the ianmalcolm and blameitonthechaos) and I really enjoy interacting with them, if nothing else they're a good source of headcanons.
