hi there /mai/
I've been conducting a survey on 'waifusim', or what you would call it, and I'd love if you could help my out by filling it in.
Where it asks for 'Community', please just put /mai/.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to ask you, personally, on your thoughts on having a waifu - namely, is it always born out of desperate times, and what kind of relationship do you have with your waifu.
Thank you for helping me.

Good luck on your research, OP.
>> No. 9899 [Edit]
I filled it out.
Cool beans.
>> No. 9901 [Edit]
thanks do far
for what looks like a slow-moving board, I've got responses surprisingly quickly
>> No. 9902 [Edit]
So, you came to this place seeking answers?
I hope you get them. Good luck.
>> No. 9903 [Edit]
I filled it out but I didn't know if I should post saying that I did
>> No. 9905 [Edit]
I was bored, so I filled it out. It would be interesting to see the results of your research when you're done.

Got linked to it when /jp/ was making fun of you and I took it just now.

And while I have already posted a little thesis on my own musings on Waifuism (http://tohno-chan.com/mai/res/8875.html) I will say that I hope waifuism becomes more mainstream so that there will not only be less pressure and ire against us husbandos, but people who have failed with 3Ds will have another shot at love.

Because you need somebody to love.
>> No. 9909 [Edit]
Ok, OP; just don't mess too much with /mai/ and /tc/.
Relatedly: could anyone please post the pics of one or both /mai/'s and /a/'s Valentines collages of the past year? My hard drive crashed and I'd love to have those back.

Will we ever see the results?
>> No. 9913 [Edit]
yeah, you'll see them.

sorry, where's /tc/? I feel like I should know this

that's an interesting thesis, especially about the spirit.

thanks everyone so far for answering too
>> No. 9914 [Edit]
/tc/ is short for Tohno-chan
And I have a question, if someone would still love it's waifu even if she were 3D, would that make "Would you engage a relationship with a 3D partner?" answer's a yes?
When you ask if I have a special someone, my waifu counts?
>> No. 9915 [Edit]
>Would you engage a relationship with a 3D partner?
that should just be taken literally, irrelevant of your waifu.
by significant other, I meant a 3D person.
>> No. 9916 [Edit]
What's this all for, anyway? Just personal curiosity?

Either way, I filled it out.
>> No. 9919 [Edit]
I remember there being a Valentine's thread here, but I don't think anyone posted a collage.

>Here’s an interesting bit from the /a/ portion of responses:
Out of 191 people, 105 took having a waifu seriously, making the percentage 55.0.
Just so you guys know, I'm going to be deeply disappointed if that percentage for /mai/ is anywhere below ninety.
>> No. 9922 [Edit]
Thread 404'd so same thread can be found from archives. Warning everyone, this includes /a/shit. http://archive.foolz.us/a/thread/69235017/
>> No. 9928 [Edit]
the average estimate so far is 74.5%, while the actual average is 76.7%
>> No. 9929 [Edit]
That's hard to believe. There's really a quarter of the people frequenting /mai/ who don't take this seriously? Shameful.
>> No. 9930 [Edit]

I believe it was posted across various boards/sites so it's not just /mai/.
>> No. 9931 [Edit]
that result was /mai/-specific/. The survey-wide averages for both were closer to 60%
>> No. 9932 [Edit]
Took it. Let's see how it goes.
>> No. 9933 [Edit]
Yeah, I know.
While I was hoping it would be over ninety percent, I was realistically expecting it would be between eighty and ninety percent. But only seventy-five? And everyone here seems to take it seriously...

Perhaps spurred on by the previous poor show, updated results show that the percentage is now 89% for people taking it seriously. Estimates stay at 76%

It's OK, I found it...

Apparently if you search the archive by Millenium, it doesn't display every post in history but, rather, none at all. I had to search just over the last 2 years to find it.

Completed. I love surveys.


I remember that. I really hope there'll be another one at some point, as we have several new users now. Valentine's 2013?
>> No. 9942 [Edit]
People are afraid that people think they are not sincere about having a waifu. You could ask loaded, indirect questions rather than straightforward questions because people are always going to have to lie to make themselves feel better. Not pointing fingers at anyone, but people have to be honest about what they feel.

Okay, this was a little disheartening to read.I assumed we came here because we wanted to get away from the people who aren't serious about their waifus?
>> No. 9950 [Edit]
We'll see. People come, people go. I wasn't here from the begining, yet I've seen quite a few trips and waifus pass by...

Meh. As long as they don't disgrace the board, that's their problem.

I think most of us don't really care taking pictures like that.

i don't even own a camera. i have no 3d memories to make, and i don't have friends, so what's the use?

Hint: don't speak for everyone else. I'd be happy to contribute.


Snap a shit cellphone shot or something.

This survey was made for trolling purposes and forcing 3D onto us. It was already posted on /a/ and we disregarded it.
>> No. 10069 [Edit]

Do you have any evidences?

Answered, is there any way we can see real-time results?

Awkward moment when you fill this out then realize this post was from 2012..
>> No. 12884 [Edit]
I am still here.
Thank you all for your responses over the past ten months or so. The reason I never gave the results to this survey is that even up to now it hasn't received too many responses from here (76 now). I will do so now though, if you want, how you want them.

>> No. 14165 [Edit]
If you're still here, I'm interested.

Well, here are half of the results so far. I'll upload the other half of the survey later. It's been nearly two years now so I suppose I'll bump this thread, and I'll be happy to update the results in the case of further results.

It stuck out to me that one of the questions asked what our mental state was before we fell in love, and all the choices were things like lonely, depressed, just rejected, etc.
Why not an option for just fine and happy with life? That's certainly how I was.

On another note, the "do you masturbate to her/pornography of her" questions were a bit of a pitfall for me. While y-yes, I do, that wording gave off the wrong connotation. All of such content of her is on the tasteful side as far as lewd content goes. There isn't anything of her that would be classified as porn in the same way doujins or hentai would. And if there were, I wouldn't look at those. It's also much more emotional when I look at those pictures of her. Just fapping to hentai is a totally different thing. With her, my heart races, I get flustered and nervous.

That's normal and goes pretty much without saying.

I just felt it was worth noting, however obvious it is, when the questions about just fapping to 3D porn were put alongside the waifu ones with no more distinction than "I do" and "I don't." I know it goes without saying for us, but a surveyor might not know that so well, maybe.

There should have been, and I know a lot of people told me so. It may reflect some expectations I had writing the survey.

And yeah, 'Other' options for the yes/no questions was another big thing I missed out. Thanks for clarifying though.
>> No. 14970 [Edit]
I didn't take the test, but looking at the results they do seem biased, or a bit one-sided. As a criticism or piece of advice: you should formulate your thoughts/preconsemptions into a hypothesis before starting the project, if you hadn't already. When constructing the attributes of your survey, you should put equal focus on proving and disproving your hypothesis, and perhaps throw some wildcards as well for testing purposes. Cherry-picking attributes makes the results nigh useless. In this sense, anyone fancying themselves a quantitative researcher, will need a fair dose of humility and pragmatism.

That said, I'm not trying to be mean. Nor do I advocate any strong opinions on the general theme of your survey.
>> No. 14971 [Edit]
Yes, definitely. This survey is less than scientific. But I think mostly my preconceptions were disproved where they biased the survey, like the 'depression' example.

What specifically did you think was biased about the results?
>> No. 14973 [Edit]
I don't think there's a problem with the results, as you didn't falsely represent them; neither did you draw any scewered conclusion or make any comment on your findings. It's a 'take it as is' approach - which I think benefits this format.

The issues was with the nature and quality of the questions asked, as well as the general focus. It would just be nice if the survey was more open-ended. Keep in mind that I'm being picky here. It would've been a different story if you had an agenda. Persaonally I think you did a nice piece of service for the community, well done for that.

Come on guys.
>> No. 14976 [Edit]
Hey, at least we're in the majority. And the people who answered yes probably aren't here anymore.
>> No. 14977 [Edit]
I never understood what those questions were really asking.

Would I have a stable relationship with a 3D partner? No, because I already have a love. Is it asking that putting aside waifus? I don't know what you're asking me really.

Do I think having a waifu holds me back in 3D relationships? That doesn't make sense, at least not to me. I don't want a 3D relationship. Nothing's "holding me back," I just don't take part in those.
>> No. 14978 [Edit]
>Would I have a stable relationship with a 3D partner? No, because I already have a love. Is it asking that putting aside waifus? I don't know what you're asking me really.
It's just if you had the opportunity now, so in your case surely a no.

>Do I think having a waifu holds me back in 3D relationships? That doesn't make sense, at least not to me. I don't want a 3D relationship. Nothing's "holding me back," I just don't take part in those.
If the decisive factor in that decision is you having a waifu, then that's a yes; if that doesn't change it then no.
