What are your thoughts on it? Do you feel as if it keeps out unwanted normals or do you think it is something that can cause conflict among others for minor variations in how they go about loving their husbando?

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.

What is "moe"? What is the "moe feeling" you talk about? Why have you turned an old meme from Azumanga into a pseudo-spiritual movement? I apologize if this comes off as derisive, but I am genuinely curious.

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.

I don't really like the idea of them
I would much rather have my own head canon about my waifu, rather than have someone create one. I am also biased because I am working on a tulpa, and with a tulpa, RP blogs will be completely useless to me, since I can talk to my waifu without a blog

Celebrating my second anniversary today. Was actually on the 2nd but I had LSAT and final exams the past few days. Wine isn't that great and took me so long to awkwardly get the corkscrew out, but I'd like to think it was decent, heh. Oh well next Valentine's will likely improve.

Here's to another year, hope it's better than this one. Really wish I could progress faster with self-improvement in general, but she's fine with waiting for me, after all. Certainly stuck with me through the crappy slumps and stuff of this year.

I'm pretty sure I checked when I first saw this thread... but only today's search caught the three pics of this year's Halloween. This Halloween Yuugi was a bikini witch, a werewolf (with Parsee as a witch), and a prince (with Suika as herself). All three are good quality and that makes this year the best Halloween for Yuugi so far.

Probably my similarity to her in many personality traits, choice of hobbies, and even physical maladies. The 'opposites attract' expression never rang true for me, so I'm presuming there's at least a fairly good chance that she would also prefer someone similar as opposed to a polar opposite.

You too suffer from mercury poisoning?

Based on her interactions with Remilia and how she acts in the printworks, I would say you are correct about her preferring someone with a similar temperament.

No mercury poisoning, thankfully. Just anemia and asthma (along with the relatively poor constitution that comes with it).

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.

What kind of job/carrier do you think would suit your waifu?

I've come across an artist on pixiv that has drawn my waifu as a train conductor a few times, and it actually kind of makes some sense given her background as well as always hanging out at a train station.

She definitely is a military soldier.

She might have the capabilities of being a military leader as well.

If peace would ever restore on this Earth and the Abyssals are wiped out entirely by then, she could also become a teacher.

Self-improvement.

I feel like I've done well for them when I've given my best effort in something which is "good" to be doing.

I do feel their approval is hard to get. I like that though. It makes me value their praise even more.

Yuugi has clear preferences that are listed in Symposium of Post-Mysticism: strength, bravery, and honesty. Of course, those are only the ones Akyuu understands. In reality, she is also the patron girl of honor, natural mystery, and truth.

Yuugi is pleased every time I ram my head into a wall. That she likes nature and it's mysteries makes it so I can't fuck up intentionally, but honor let's me seek trouble half-intentionally. She'd abandon me if I ever gave up, but also knows the virtue of avoiding useless exertion.

Has anyone here been in a situation where he met someone who he could love more than his waifu? If so, how did you cope with the situation, and if that person went down the path of having to change his waifu, how would you view him?

I'm currently in a situation where my current waifu, who I have been with for more than 5 years, might not be the one that occupies the largest spot in my heart anymore. I stayed up nights feeling conflicted about this issue at first, so I decided to let time tell whether or not my adoration of the newer girl would pass. However, I'd be lying if the prospect of possibly having to change my waifu didn't bother me. So I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Picture unrelated.

Slightly different situation but I feel I relate a bit. I didn't get feelings for my current love until a while after 'leaving' my first waifu of 4 years, it took me a few months of shame and denial to accept that I loved somebody new. I felt intense shame for falling in love again and worried I'd be judged, but in the end you can't change what you feel I guess. I say give it time to think about, but do what you have to do.

If you spent over 5 years with somebody and care so much then you obviously aren't just switching from girl to girl, but somebody who just changes their mind over and over I would judge more negatively.

I know my moe sweet spots and can tell my waifu doesn't hit every one of them. There are other girls who hit some she doesn't and don't hit all she does, and I think I could be as happy as I am now with any of them. What keeps me from worrying? I'm too lazy to seriously consider other girls when I already have her.

I would call you an idiot, for letting her down.
Have you considered the feelings of the person you love? You probably hit her moe spots, and you would leave her? For something better?
Its fine. Why do you have to change it?
Stick with the love you chose until the day you die.
Its not like shes being bad to you or anything, you just got some fresh air and want something new. Trust me, you will be thankful to me because you stuck up for her through worst. And she will be thankful to you.
I know we may be talking about waifus, and it may not be real, but its as real a problem to me as the air I breath, and I want to help.
