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?

My parents divorced when I was 8 years old, but this is probably considered normal these days...
Other than that I can't think of anything besides the clichee nerdy stuff like playing old video games all day and learning about computers.

I've never been good with physical human contact. was an only child with parents that never touched me and what not. kinda makes getting a waifu a more natural choose than a 3dpd.

Well, there was one particularly obvious one: I found myself attracted to fictional characters ever since I was a young child (starting around the age of 5, I believe)- even going as far as to imagine myself with them in fantasies. It wasn't until I got much older that it became a full-fledged matter of love, of course.

Eheheh... I liked Matoran Hahli from Bionicle when I was like 9 and remember playing MNOG, looking back I guess the Matoran were cute.

When I got crushes I was really mad that I would be distracted by something so petty instead of aiming for any greater potential I might have. I also did prefer 2D girls. I guess out of that romanticism waifuism happened.

I liked kopaka; he was cool.

Mine divorced when I was two. I grew up without a father. I'm an only child as well.

I could always relate better to fictional characters as a child. I didn't have any friends so I spent my time reading. There are quite a few girls I had crushes on from books, but nothing serious... I guess it's only natural that I met my waifu in a VN.

The first time I fell for a 3D girl, she had a boyfriend. A guy that used to bully me.

I was forced to see them together, five days a week, for two whole years. In hindsight it was just a crush, but back then I didn't know any better.

I mistook the feeling of love as a negative emotion for a long time after that, until I met mai waifu. She showed me that love wasn't a bad thing after all.

I couldn't tell although it was in highschool that I was divided into having a 3D girlfriend (which I didn't have, luckily) or a waifu though in the end, I ended up having a waifu.

My father passed away when I was still very young, so I grew up without a father figure.

I pretty much spent my whole childhood and teenage years immersed in books, video games and other fiction - reality was often put on the backburner. A run-of-the-mill loner, a stranger to relationships and love - that is, until she came into my life.

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.

Yes, sorry, I usually just lurk here. It's just that the topic of the thread made me reminisce a little.
>> No. 18116 [Edit]
Every single 3D girl was always completely unappealing. I also prefered the worlds of fiction, so it was only natural.
>> No. 18123 [Edit]
You're not alone in that.
I don't think it's the biggest factor for me ether, but I have come to acknowledge that it is personally why I have problems trusting 3D people.
(Only speaking for myself of course.)
>> No. 18131 [Edit]
Nope. To be honest, I thought it was all a bit of a silly thing until I met her. I fell for her as I would with any other person, 2 or 3 dimensional and just knew she was the one for me. Even if that did take a bit of time.

From time to time I think about how I ended up where I am now. When I grew up, I always had an ideal about romance: The idea of a lover who was also your best friend. I had a crush on her when I was a lot younger when I saw the anime (the non-existent one that JC staff did) and for some reason I gravitated toward her. At that time it was hard to put my finger on why and this feeling sort of carried on up until I played her route and fell for her completely. Maybe my subconscious had an intuition about her that she was special and I'm inclined to think that was the case because as I know myself better, I also better understand just why my intuition compelled me and why she's the perfect girl for me. It's probably the only favor my subconscious has done me. In essence, it just seems like I was drawn to her, a 2D girl, from awhile back. On top of that, I learned quickly that 3D could not meet the ideals I had and instead of tossing the ideals out the window and compromise, I chose to keep them in spite of the limitations.

Most of my childhood (till age 17) was spent around members of the same sex, thanks to going to certain schools, and I have few cousins etc of the opposite sex. Thus I didn't think much about 3D relationships, believing stuff that parents said about "oh it will sort itself out when you get older". Turns out that it didn't.

It's not their fault, I just shit the bed hard when it comes to making friendships much less relationships IRL. I can deal with my own gender no problem but the opposite sex is just, fucking hell. Had a bunch of shitty crushes that just messed me up. They're nothing much in hindsight but to a teenager they were massive.

Therefore I have to admit that failure at getting a 3D partner drove me to escapism and down the path. Sometimes I feel like a faggot because honestly, things could have turned out very differently if not for certain experiences in my formative years.

It is what it is, I guess.

I've always had a super strong affection for 2D worlds and fictional characters. Nintendo played a huge role in shaping my childhood and life, so it was very easy for me to get lost in my games between say, ages 3 and 10. I did a lot of weird mental self insertions where I would day dream about visiting their worlds, or them visiting ours and shenanigans happening. I also liked to ship characters when I was younger, probably the biggest ones were Buster and Babs Bunny from Tiny Toons, and Tai and Sora from Digimon.

I think all of these factors eventually snowballed into a scenario where I just ended up falling in love with a character. I don't think it's too much of a logic leap to combine "wanting to meet fictional characters" and "shipping" to "wanting to love a fictional character."

Fuck, now I just want to go chill out and play Super Mario World for like 4 hours.

I guess I also had a few crushes during school, but they never really developed beyond that because I sucked at handling girls. Honestly though, I wouldn't say me enjoying 2D is a result of me eschewing 3D. It's true I had crushes, but they never really went beyond that, so it's not like I was ever really bitter about it for long, if at all.

Pretty much like >>15724, I've always found myself attracted to fictional characters.
I remember when I was around 10 or 11, I had a major crush on Cardcaptor Sakura. I remember, for reasons I couldn't understand, wanting to be her friend so badly and even praying that she would just magically show up at school the next day or something before falling asleep pretty much every night. It went on for a year at least. Good times.

By god anon, that is adorable indeed.

I generally have a hard time expressing more than casual interest in another person (even if they interest me)and don't like talking about myself at all. So yeah, that's sort of a sign.
>> No. 18217 [Edit]
Absolutely none, apart from having unrealistically high standards in what I want in a mate.
>> No. 18288 [Edit]
Not at all really.
I had a normal interest in girls and they were interested in me too.
I used the term waifu as a joke at first.
But then i met her.
>> No. 18596 [Edit]
I've never really been attracted to 3D much, or been particularly interested in dating them. Not out of hatred or bitterness, just ambivalence. That, and I've always been one to fantasize a lot.
