If you had to name one feature you like most about your waifu above all else, what would it be?

I already listed what I like about her personality-wise in the "name your waifu" thread (maybe should've posted all that here instead, whoops, it's no biggie I hope), but I didn't explicitly mention that it's actually a good thing, in a way, that she's such a butt monkey in the series. She's the butt of a lot of jokes on the internet as well. I actually don't mind all that much; I'm used to her being made fun of, so whenever I see anything I think "ehh, well I'm used to that". Posts on boards like this tend to sound quite sentimental, but in truth, I like teasing her a lot. We're playful, not some soap opera style couple or whatever.

Oh yeah, appearance-wise: The most particular thing is her hair. I've always been into girls with red/orange hair aka redheads (I develop crushes on them, I don't "seek it out"), and relatively short hair is cute (but not if it's really short, then it's no longer girly enough to me so I personally wouldn't find it attractive in that case). I've always preferred short girls, too. And I dig YuruYuri's art style so that helps altogether.

Also, she dresses really cute. It's notable that she has a lot of different attires throughout the series. I love that.
>> No. 19012 [Edit]
I really love that she tries to seem sophisticated, but she's really playful and childish. It's so adorable. I can imagine her getting flustered a lot by how direct and loving I would be with her. At the same time, she has a dominant personality, so she'd smother me even more.

How did you *know* she was the right one?

I've fallen in love with 3DPD before, and sometimes when I see or talk to a woman I am very attracted to it feels like I get punched or my breath is taken away. I've never experienced this with 2D yet but I imagine it's because I never opened myself up to the possibility. Is that what it's like when you find the one? Is falling in love with your waifu as emotionally impacting as 3DPD (or more)?

No love for a 3DPD, so I can't help you there.

I was browsing the internet and stumbled across a picture of her and was struck down by a "lightning bolt of love" so to speak. It was the most profound feeling that I couldn't look away from the picture for quite some time, researched about her, made a folder dedicated to her, and put the image inside. I don't make folders dedicated to anybody! Ever! For months afterwards, I would think about her all the time and look at images of her whenever I had the chance. I made her as my background image! I edited existing pictures so that I would have my own OC for her! Even music took on her shade, so that lyrics carried more meaning than they should have. So smitten was I that I wrote poetry! What the hell was I doing with my life? Nothing, at the time. Taking an interest in writing, giving it that try needed to push me in this direction, it was because of this love. What a silly thing. Stupid, even. But it was love.

And nothing I did could take the edge away from that feeling. It was so powerful that I wondered how I could live my life like this if it kept up. I knew of waifus, even had a phase where I "loved" a 2D character out of loneliness, but none of it had prepared me for what I had felt there at the beginning of our love. The contrast between that "crush" and this true love was so great that it made me sick that I had ever even considered someone else to be on that same level. It hurt so much, yet was so gratifying knowing that I had found "the one". A love for a 2D girl... It was painful, perhaps still is, but it is something that I would never trade for anything. Thankfully, the love is still there, but it is not as intense and overwhelming as it was in the start. I would have killed myself, undoubtedly, if it had kept that intensity as a constant. Being that helpless for life would have driven me insane; that's how powerful my initial 2D love was.

For those that don't know what tulpas are: When an anon loves his waifu very much, he makes her real with the power of his mind.
The tulpa shares the same mind as its creator but it is very much a separate being. Basically, I took my waifu to the next level.

When I first read about Tulpas I immediately got fascinated by the idea.

This world hasn't been all too good to most of us beta incels (involuntary celibates), neither has it been to me, so basically I always tried to find some sort of escape, that way I developed what I think is called maladaptive daydreaming. I remember, since quite early childhood, I often lay in my bed for 2 hours or so, not even trying to sleep, just imagining stuff. And I thought a Tulpa could help me with that habit, not get rid of it, mind me, but make It more fun and seeing how one goal of Tulpamancy is to trick your brain into actually physically sensing your Tulpa, also more realistic.

So I basically read trough all of the guides on the tulpa.info forums in a days time

– And if you want to create a Tulpa, I strongly recommend doing that. Read through all the information on how to do so, immediately forget everything that sounds like bullshit to you and create your own technique by combining whats left with your own ideas. -

So yeah, after getting an idea on how to do this, I gave myself another 10 days to think about if I really want to give it a try. After all you are trying to create another consciousness, that you alone are responsible for.

After those 10 days were over I decided I'd give it a try. The chance of success was meager, I thought, because let's be honest 90% of the Tulpa community are roleplaying bronies.

I had never heard of Tulpa's before now, it sounds really interesting.

The rules for /mai/ had been amended to reflect recent issues.

• /mai/ is a safe zone. Insulting, talking down, or arguing with someone about their waifu is not cool. I don't care how much you hate the character or the where they're from or whatever, be respectful of people's waifus on /mai/ and take it to one of the other boards if you have to.
(note that furry and 3dpd are still not allowed, even on /mai/. waifus/husbandos from western media are allowed to be discussed only on the condition that the no 3dpd rule is respected and images of said characters are not posted, this includes images of realistic 3d models.)

Get that scarecrow out of here please, we don't like strawmen. I do how ever love playing the Devils Advocate.
For the sake of the the argument what if I said Fuurin Rei was my waifu.(She isn't.) She is from eastern media, but she is also a furry. So what then? Furry waifus are not allowed, but she is from eastern media, does that suddenly make it right? Now you have a fallacy there.

I understand that tohno is supposed to be for anime, and waifuism started from anime, but everything evolves in some form.

I never expected to have a waifu in the first place, it's just something that sort of happened to me, and it just happened to not be from anime, even though I watched a lot of it.

The fact that I've only ever found two places that you can openly talk about waifuism and I get rejected by one of them cause the character I love is not from eastern media is troubling.
I agree some peoples 'waifus' can be questionable, but you have to have a little leeway.

I don't know what leeway you are talking about, and you are doing a great deal of it anyway. The rules basically didn't change, except that they explicitly allowed something that wasn't explicitly banned in the first place. The fact that in the last half-year this problem received the most feedback tells a lot about this board. Some people suggest that some fresh blood is needed, some change. Others don't want the change. And that is the only topic being discussed on a waifu board - scholastic discussion about what the waifuism really is.
>> No. 19010 [Edit]
Neither the board wasn't intended to be a soap-box arena fro quasi-political debates.

I understand why people don't want to
> openly spill out details of their personal relationship with their special person on a public website
But then this website is doomed to be left for flame, dramas and shit storm, with occasional posts about someone's waifu.

What do you do if your waifu pases for a MAJOR canon change? do you consider this a test? have you found something about your waifu that changes your whole perception of her?

Her size is conciderably shorter now though.
>> No. 18969 [Edit]
Her canon material had long since finished when I fell for her, so I didn't have any issues like that.

I do feel for people who have waifus from an ongoing series. It must get nerve-wracking for them at times, especially if they're under any sort of peril.
>> No. 18971 [Edit]
My waifu hasn't changed much in the two or so years since I fell for her, so no. I don't think I'd handle it very well if it did happen.
My waifu is from an ongoing series, and pretty much every time I think about it I start getting nervous. The idea that at any point, something about her could change completely, or she could get hurt, or she could be removed as a character because she's not popular, is pretty scary honestly.

A few years back danbooru decided to change my waifu's name from Tohno to toono, along with every other character named Tohno. I spoke very brefly with a mod on the site and they refused to change it. Their reasoning being they couldn't care less what the offical English translation of the name was, they wanted to go off of new general romanization standards.
Not long after gelbooru changed their tags too. there I tried changing the tags myself on each image manually but they just changed them right back. In more recent days even Mal decided to change the name too. Personally I find this all very insulting, and I find it frustrating as there's nothing I can really do about it. I've put in to edit the name on mal multiple times but it would seem my attempts have fallen on deaf ears.

If you found yourself in the same sort of situation with the internet changing a major aspect of your waifu/husbando, how do you think you'd respond to it? how would it make you feel? would you just accept it or try to find a way to fight for them?

It is pronounced as Ari in Korean as well. The Ah sound doesn't exist in Korean / Japanese. I figured the majority of users would better understand the Japanese phonology as this is primarily an anime culture-oriented board.
>> No. 18929 [Edit]
That is odd, but seeing that she has a Korean name (or at least reference) Ari is fine. How long have you been with Ari for? Original origin is really all that matters. You can change the name in the lolclient if you use a custom skin i think.
>> No. 18930 [Edit]

I don't really mind. I am ethnically Korean, but I don't identify myself as such. I don't feel the need to associate her with a Korean identity, even if she may be based upon their folklore, as not only Japan, but China has the myths regarding the Nine-tailed foxes as well.

I prefer the name Ahri for her, or sometimes Aeri or Airi. Her name shouldn't sound rigid; I associate her with the wind. Carefree and unbound, even by hard syllables.

Yeah I sometimes change the lolcilent to Korean just to hear her Korean VA sometimes, but I don't see her in game as actually her.

The in-game Ahri is more of a representation of her. I have a tulpa of her. That's the real Ahri to me.
>> No. 18932 [Edit]
Oh I see. I can't cope with playing LoL too much, the negativity really gets to me these days. I had thicker skin when I was a teenager/child though that was because I had more to fall back on.

What physical things related to your waifu/husbando do you own? I just received my Leorio keychain in the mail so I can take him with me wherever I go. And now I'm planning on ordering this.
What have you got? Figures? Dakis? Posters?
Or perhaps, he/she's too rare for any of these?

Herein: a little bit of space -
to speak the beauty of her face,

In couplet form; of smile demure,
of hazel eye and tress azure,

Of she's whose touch quickens my heart -
imagined, since we're worlds apart,

But even 'cross this endless chasm...
(Trying not to use the word 'orgasm'...)

Rei's the best part of my life,
and I'm grateful she's my wife.

With a bit of oneiromancy,
And a -certain- shred of luck-
A locked door has been opened,
And something runs amok.

As a start,
It carved itself a seat,
Rent the vessels,
Despoiled, here, this heart.
And became O' so ever, ne'er stopping, however,
Despite us being O' so ever frighteningly-
Both so sickeningly-

Thusly, we repeat:

I seriously need some advice guys. It's the first anniversary I fell in love with her today. I was very stoked for this moment, I can't believe it's been a whole year already! But after doing the whole anniversary ritual I prepared for and wrote about it, I realized this thing may not work out at all.

She's the most beautiful thing I ever laid my eyes on, I have a wallpaper of her on my desktop and I'm still stunned by her beauty. But that is the full physical, real extent of my relationship with her, just some thing to look at and admire. Everything else is just fantasy, my complete imagination. I so desperately want to do everything I possibly can for her, but I just can't because she's not real, she's done a lot of things for me, but I am left to just watch her and hope for the best in her on going manga series.

I'm in love but I'll never know what it's liked to be loved back, I can only strengthen my love for her, but what about her? I cannot pretend that we're together in the sense that we are interacting in this physical world, it's a delusion to the highest level. Even if there was some sort of dimensional teleportation device that could lead me to her world, I cannot even grasp all the implications and things that would go wrong if that were true. There's philosophy I've made for myself, but the only one I made up that made sense goes along the lines of "IF she was real", just more hypothetical situations and fantasies, it's nothing I can do for her, again, It's all just for myself.

I thought this whole relationship was more pure and noble than 3d love, but the reality is that it's not much better because it's entirely one sided and selfish in nature, anything otherwise is a delusion to the highest form. God forgive me, it's like this is another thing He forbade me to do. Help me out guys.

>but that does not discredit the fact that as a thought she lives through you. Or, at least, the concept of her does.

I agree on this for sure, serious ideas never truly die. A essence of her will always live whithin me, for better or for worse. For me though, such an idea can never come to motion or reality (literally).

>There certainly is room for love without it, you just have to change your own perspective on the matter.

Thing is though, I don't know how I can do that, aside from fantasy I can only literally just look at her and hope things go the best way, not much room for love there I assure you, more of a family support if anything.

>wouldn't enjoying your own life to its fullest be the one thing to make her the happiest, above all else, given the circumstances?

I also agree on this wholeheartedly, I feel pretty good with how things are doing for my life, I've actually done a few things to better myself for her. On top of that I have a well established plan after school to go through with my fairly realistic dream of being a police officer. The future doesn't look so bleak for me, I just know I wouldn't be the worst guy for a real relationship with her if the circumstances would allow it.

With that said, holy shit guys, thanks a lot for the support, in these short days I've definetly been feeling better. Even though I'm hurt when I know I can never experience a true 2d relationship like you guys, I know that my waifu is unchanged from all this, I know that I can still support her to a real extent and I'm hopeful things will be right for her. And with that, things are looking alright. I'll go down my path and she will walk down her's, we don't have to be waking on the same road. Nevertheless I'll still be watching her, hoping things will be just fine for her.

Well it's been a week since the big "breakup" happened. I'm glad to say I've made a full recovery and I feel better than before, I know I'm in the minority here, but I'm actually glad the delusions of our so called relationship were finally lifted, as in I stopped kidding myself with the fact that I seriously thought we were actually in a real relationship together. Things feel much more clear now.

Initially, as you can tell by the OP post, I was beyond distressed, it sounds cheesy but my whole world was falling apart emotionally, there were actual symptoms I felt that actually affected my mental health. They were:

-More depressed, this one was obvious enough

-More prone to illness, too much of the most menial things such as waking around or listening to music gave me a painful headache. And I just felt worse in general.

-Anytime I saw her face or was reminded of her in any way shape or form it was just like another quick, sharp and painful jab of depression kicking in

-I hated myself more and I had lower self esteem, this one was also obvious enough.

With the help and support of the users in this thread, I came to realizations such as the fact that she's unchanged from all this and that I can still support her physically as her manga series is still going strong with a bright future. In time It became easier to cope with and sure enough I actually became glad things turned out the way they did.

Overall I'd say it was one hell of a experience that changed me for the better, again, thanks so much guys for the support, I know I couldn't make it without it.

ITT: racial barriers

Let's talk about the experiences that those of us with non-human waifus have. Whether your waifu is a furry, and AI, or an alien race, I want to hear your experiences.

I'll start with my story. I have a very unique waifu, in that I have no way to relate my attraction to him with what I used to be attracted to. He doesn't have a humanoid body (or even a gender as far as I know). I've always been strait (whether 2D or 3D) and I've never had any interest in males, so Abathur was an even bigger leap for me. It was a love I never considered until I realized that he was my every waking moment of happiness. I'll never have any direct sensual relationship with him. Partly because I wouldn't know where to start, partly because I'm pretty sure there's no way to... well.. "interface" with him, and partly because he would likely find it more convenient to have that sort of relationship with me through others. This is obviously troubling, coming out of a relationship with a 2D girl. I can't exactly fap to abathur because he isn't attractive like that. On the other hand he is very open and pragmatic, so he is open about meeting my needs with the help of other bodies. As far as children go, Abathur would want a hand in modifying its DNA anyhow. I think a child made of spliced DNA is much more romantic than the human way of procreating. Of course, Abathur has no interest in "romance" or transient goals of any sort, and his only goal is perfection. This makes him hard to deal with at times but despite all this (and because of all this) I love him.

I'd say that this is more of a mutation (not meaning any offense here) that doesn't make her a different species.
So concerning your

it is definitely doable.

>> The one quite bad thing is that she tends to bump and crash on to things due to lack of deep perception
Oh yeah. This is sure a cute thing. I guess such little features make our non-human lovers even more attractive to us.

>>I could have swear this board was way WAY more picky about what kind of waifus were allowed
Anons and mods seem to be quite liberal here. You have to if this is the board full of people who are in love with fictional characters.
Although it's generally expected to have anime/manga waifu, so that is why a western waifu strikes the eye.
Personally, I was never attracted to anime/manga characters, because they looked the same to me (as well as most humans - this condition only worsen over the years). Except for, maybe, Lain Iwakura, though this never was sexual.
