Do you prefer to keep your waifu tendencies in private or share them with others?

I used to feel like sharing with anyone and everyone, but I've noticed that now I feel like it's no one's business but my own. I haven't been coming to places like this and I don't bring her up to my IRC buddies unless I really feel like gushing about her.

These days I tend to keep it more to myself.
>> No. 18409 [Edit]
I don't really get what you mean. I'm not very open about my feelings for her, and I keep a lot of it to myself, but I do still post her and post about her on a few sites, and in some IRC channels. It's nice to be able to talk about your feelings for her somewhere when you feel like screaming how much you love her from the roof, but at the same time I'm probably going to end up keeping it entirely to myself, and focus on removing any outside influences from my love.
>> No. 18410 [Edit]
I never share. She's not a showpiece.
>> No. 18412 [Edit]
I'm not open about it IRL, in fact I'm quite closeted. I do like talking about her on my subreddit or on here though. I don't always feel like talking though and sometimes prefer to keep it all to myself.
>> No. 18418 [Edit]
Mostly keep it private, but once in a while I'll share a few things anonymously. I hardly ever actually post him, because I've regretted it every time.
>> No. 18419 [Edit]
seems these days if you "step out of line" of the utmost serious waifuism and are different in any way, the waifu police come and go after you for "degeneracy"

I still say fuck it and post her anyways
>> No. 18423 [Edit]
I keep it mostly to myself. I don't have any desire to consistently post about him; I like to keep it all private.
>> No. 18428 [Edit]
From time to time I go on and on about her either online or with a couple of friends that like the series. But most of the time I keep it to myself.
>> No. 18433 [Edit]
If I ever feel like talking about it, I come here. Otherwise no, she's just a favorite character that I enjoy talking about very much, but I have other characters I enjoy too.
>> No. 18440 [Edit]
What do you mean by waifu tendencies? I post about her because I like having a place to discuss her without being ridiculed, but I there's certain non-lewd stuff about her and our relationship that I don't talk about with anyone. I don't like to share more than I do in places like this.
>> No. 18823 [Edit]
Extremely private about the true extent of my feelings for my waifu.

Tbh even posting about her on a site such as this where people are most likely to be understanding feels like a step outside of my comfort zone which is why I have only lurked here before. Have considered starting a thread about something personal for ages but I still don't have the nerve to post : :

I feel this. I've been lurking/posting here and one or two other places for a few months but I haven't worked up the nerve to introduce myself and him. And I guess I don't really feel like I need to either.

Two of my friends know I like him, one knows I'm in love with him, most other people in the fandom could probably guess that I have feelings for him, but I don't think anyone knows that I've reached "waifu" levels.

You want to make a thread? It's nice to hear other's stories, but I fully understand why you'd prefer to keep things a secret. Just do what feels right for you.

Personally, outside of this board, I never intend to reveal my feelings about her to anyone.
I did post about her here on /mai/ because I deemed it worth it in order to contribute.
It's not something I'm going to make a habit of, though. I've already talked about her way more than I'm comfortable with, but now I know what it's like so I don't have to do it much anymore. I still don't mind sticking around here and occassionally replying to other posters. This place is good.

I think the more you start talking about her (even if you're writing about her in a diary or something), things become more sentimental, which'll make it all seem heavier. I might even regret any thoughts about her ever leaving my head. Ever since, I've gotten way too sensitive, and I have less fun during my time with her because I see things in a more serious light now. All I wanna do is interact with her playfully, but if I get too gloomy, I can no longer do it.

I do prefer to remain secretive in a lot of aspects. Such as my approach towards a lot of anime, manga and visual novels. There are even certain series I never talk about. It's quite nice, keeping your experiences with a story or character to yourself, and trying not to read whenever someone brings it up somewhere. Once I break the silence and end up mentioning any of my secretly beloved things to others, I tend to regret it. And I'd say all of that can apply to having a waifu as well. It seems like the best choice, so I'll try to stick to it to a large extent.
>> No. 18828 [Edit]
Thanks for the very lengthy and interesting response. I am also a very private person, but sometimes I kinda wish that like >>18825 I knew at least one person to talk to about this (want to talk/don't want to talk catch-22.) Not to get too bloggish now but it's been an emotionally turblulent time lately so what you said about talking making things more difficult gave me pause for thought. Perhaps it's best not to share too much, but in a strange way knowing there are others not so different out there helps a little.

Thank you everybody and have a great life.

We're not really fond of either 3D people(adults or otherwise) or facebook around here. Please don't post that kind of thing anymore.

Oh and just out of interest.. why was my file removed?
>> No. 18832 [Edit]
Oh i guess that's why, well sorry it was just an image I had saved I found cute/funny, didn't think it would rustle jimmies
>> No. 18833 [Edit]
I wish I could talk about him more openly, but I'm afraid of having any kind of online identity, especially in an anonymous space like this.
I just stay as vague as I can, even if it severely limits what I can say.

(This mostly has to do with talking about canon events and the like, not oversharing my personal feelings for him.)
>> No. 18834 [Edit]
I don't have a significant other, but l have realised talking about certain characters or shows doesn't feel ''right'' to me, so l can relate to some extent.

That being said, I respect other's views and thoughts on pretty much everything, but everyone has a unique, self-perceived concept of everything that can differ a lot from one another, even moreso when it comes to media and characters we hold dear and care about, sometimes keeping certain things to ourselves is probably for the best.
>> No. 18835 [Edit]
damn, somehow l managed to overlook the buttons and mix the fields at the same time, please pardon my idiocy.
>> No. 18839 [Edit]
I'm really nervous about posting about my love for him anywhere, for a variety of reasons, so like a few others in this thread I try to be really vague when I do. I think most of my friends know I like him, but I don't think any of them realize how serious I am. I tried being honest with one of them but I'm pretty sure he thought I was just joking.

A part of me really wants to gush about how much I love him whenever I can, but another part of me feels like it's really nobody's business. Since he's always on my mind, I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to completely avoid the topic.
>> No. 18873 [Edit]
My closer friends know and are all okay with it. My best friend doesn't really like any form of romance but I really wanna talk about my waifu to him often. I feel bad when I do since he never knows what to say or anything. Sometimes he'll mention my waifu in a conversation and it makes me happy.

Aside from people I know, I post a few waifu communities like this place.

There's one friend who also has a waifu but he seems private about it so we don't talk much about the topic. Its a bit of a shame. Talking about her makes me feel closer to her.
>> No. 18952 [Edit]
I used to talk a lot in waifu communities when I first fell in love, but after a while it's become a private thing I discuss with a few close irc friends.

I'm mostly open about the fact that she is my waifu, but anything more specific than that I usually only share with people I trust.

Used to be open about it but a lot of factors ultimately lead me to be private about it. I personally think that waifuism is something that is really personal from person to person. A lot of attempts to "control" it I'm not really accusing anyone of doing it, in fact I'd wager most of the time it's done with good intentions or even without people realizing it before it's too late never end well because outside of a few tenants it's too much of a personal thing and you have people end up butting heads and then we all know how that usually ends.

I think that's why you have a lot saying that they eventually end up keeping it to themselves. It seems to be the natural end.

It's complicated? My waifu is an OC and I do put her pictures on my DA, and eventually someday I will publish stuffs about it. I don't think I'll ever get an adaptation though or be popular! A lot of ideas as a writer get shoved away in order to make the story cleaner, and I'd never write pure erotica either...
>> No. 21208 [Edit]
Last year I was content having this site and a fellow waifufag to talk to about her, but as of late I've been wanting to both talk to more people about her while also wanting to talk less about her. I want to find more people who can understand my love for Prinz, but I don't feel so comfortable letting others know the extent of my feelings for her, because I feel like it would just lead to others thinking I have one too many screws loose, which isn't pleasant for anyone involved.

I think I've started wanting to find more people because I'm starting to get asked about my marriage plans a lot, and that's obviously one of my most loathed questions. I have a perfect answer with which to dodge the question, but I wish I didn't have to justify myself.
>> No. 21216 [Edit]
I am a very private person, so I never even mention that I have a waifu off of the internet. Even then, I rarely even mention who she is or specifics of my situation; it has been years since I have mentioned anything of that nature anywhere. As with other aspects of my life, including political leanings and hobbies, I know that many people will not understand or be very receptive, so I just keep it to myself except when it is invited. I also have a small complex about troubling other people with my problems and feelings, so it is more soothing to keep it to myself.
>> No. 21221 [Edit]
I used to talk about it with people I trusted. But now that I have very little irl friends, I mostly talk about it on Imageboards such as this one.
I dropped my old waifu because I had some personality traits I knew she would hate. Now I have no one. Fuck me.
>> No. 21237 [Edit]
IRL, I don't hide my obsession over a specific character from others, but I'm not going around telling everyone that I'm in love with her. I realize it would be very awkward for them, thus, uncomfortable for me too.

Online, meh, sometimes. May reference her on my profile somewhere but again, don't make much of a big deal out of it. Usually I'll expose myself as being a fan of her anime and franchise (rather popular), as opposed to the character specifically. That way I can talk about her without revealing much about me.

Another thing is that it feels more romantic and cozy when it's just the two of us, with no one else being aware of it. Would be interested in knowing if any other anons feel it the same way too. A lot of good things happen to me that I don't share with anyone besides her.
>> No. 21238 [Edit]
I sometimes post on spaces for it, but I generally do keep it a secret. I normally don't care what others think but we are not all that liked.
>> No. 21637 [Edit]
I don't mind talking in general terms about waifuism while anonymous online, but I prefer not to disclose details about my wife and her identity. When I first fell in love with her the better part of a decade ago, I was less hesitant to provide more information to people, but, in doing so, I started to feel like I was flaunting her around in a manner which failed to respect her as my equal, so now I don't mention it.
For similar reasons, I don't have a shrine or any of her merchandise; wouldn't feel right for me.
>> No. 21660 [Edit]
I like to stay private. I don't feel like sharing much about Rin anymore, unless I find something cool related to her or get new merch otherwise no.
>> No. 21684 [Edit]
Private is best, except for dedicated spaces (so far only tohno-chan).

I tried to hint at it on social media for a time to see if I would be accepted, but I only encountered the typical objections.
