Oh please...you can hardly compare this to 4chan! Besides, getting too close to people online is unhealthy

wouldn't agree that online dating is unhealthy. its seems impractical at best. its prob a last resort for all i know. if your looking for friends of similar interest i haven't touch the profile edit button in ages but i think there is a tag box. and if you can get people to do it then theres your bromance.

as for real romance, thats just adds complications to an anime site.

^^ the reason why i am against online dating, what if this is how she is when you meet her. don't have anything against cat lovers. but you do know that you have the option of doing the video again so why post this version. i only see people that actually contacts her for dating purposes only try to take advantage of her.

i have made a few friends online, i even skype some of them. be cool if i can meet some of em in real life. but for the sake of practicallity i wouldn't imagine going out with them. if it takes off after hanging in real life thats another story.

I've seen plenty of relationships here so it's up to people really. So, whatever happens - happens. Criticizing them for being stupid isn't really correct either.

I could be wrong but CR was a lot more socially active back then, in my view anyway.

I was going to start trolling but, really, some threads don't even need it.

I am not saying that, what I am saying is that I think it would be a good idea if people on here used it as a means to meet new people, not just watch anime and troll threads. This is always like a mini 4chan and I hate it.
Read your own title, it clearly says romance or did you forget? If you want a site for "romantic friendships" go to gaiaonline, they even dress up little anime avatar things and have towns where they walk around in. You made one hilarious topic that was bound to be trolled and you insult the whole community here. It's your fault for not knowing how this community works. CR is actually one of the more friendly forum sites, and to see that you are actually comparing it to 4chan makes you look like a noob. I don't like using that word but I was saving it especially for you.



I have been on 4chan, everyone who knows what the internet has been on /b/. A majority of the people who post in these forums tend to be trolling most of the time. Actually saving the word "Noob" for me is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. I pointed out a true fact, and here you are spiting in my face, saying I'm wrong when I am not. You must be joking, right? Go to 4chan, look at all the jerks on there. It closely resembles just about any forum. I'll give you credit for being partially right, not all threads here are trolled, but it's the same on any forum site. It's my fault for not knowing how the community works? It works like every other one in existence, there are users who enjoy posting in threads, and having legit conversations, and there are trolls/jerks/freaks. Yeah my title says romance, but I'm not saying this site should become a dating website. You just took one of the two extremes and blew it out of proportion. If you do not understand what i mean, then let me redefine it so make it more clear:

I think that it would be nice for crunchyroll to have slightly more of a means for people to talk, share opinions, get to know each other, and even possibly find romance in the process. I do not want a dating site, maybe more user friendly threads dedicated to people who enjoy the idea of romance.

I am sorry if I misled you, or anything of the matter.

I myself enjoy a little romance in life, even if it's just playful conversations with people on a forum. It's fun, and it means you meet more friends.

It all boils down to the idea that one could meet people, in a thread dedicated to the idea of actually getting to know each other, without the insult of trolls, and make a relationship out of it(romantic or friendly).

Here's the thing. I am not looking for a romance myself. Well, online that is. I understand what you are saying, but as a big lover of anything romance, I think it would be nice to see people being able to become even just friends, without trolls or jerks in a thread. The romance would just add the cherry on top.

at this point if you really understand what i said, then i really don't get what your trying to say.

my response, i dunno if your a new user but cr has groups to join. you can do all the setting and kick out the jerks. it would be nice to see all of the groups that used to be up come back to life. thats where i found alot of cr friends. thats a place on cr to hang with em.

Well if there are any females here in Baltimore that are on CR (I doubt it) then I would love to meet her in person and hang out together.

For a moment I got excited because I thought the topic was going to be, Crunchyroll should add more romance drama shows to the website. Booooo!

But to get on topic, most people on this website who search for friends usually they stick to their own clique. I have also seen some people "couple" or are actual couples on this website from being on this website since 2006 and moderating it. Some i would say are quite sweet, some are a bit troubling as I have reports of harassment and etc. But overall in my humblest opinion, I prefer the friendships. I am iffy about adding romance into it, because you don't know what the person on the other side is like. Now I have no objections if you like someone or are in a relationship with anyone on this website, but all I can say is be safe and there is such thing as a report button at the bottom of everyone's profiles (although it takes me or another moderator a while to check it due to life and you must provide proof).

As for trolling on the forums those exist everywhere (including the chat rooms when it was still here). Trolls and jerks will always be trolls and jerks. You can't control them and they are everywhere (I am one... sometimes ^^~). That is why ignore them, it is that simple or again
-cough cough- that report button.

Overall there is love in the community, but you have to search for it, because like I stated before, some stick to their own cliques where they have fun with those they enjoy being around with. You just have to find your own clique and good luck ^^~

Brah, all these goth kids who think they've found their kawaii vampire-neko soul mate or whatever shit they come out with nowerdays use the site for dating. There's enough "romance in the community" as it is. I'd rather focus on real life since I don't see enough of it.


I guess you're right. I just can't take the people here seriously, the community is literally a pile of ass-clowns who don't know the difference between trolling, and having a decent conversation.


Thank you for the love of god someone who agrees with me anyway in all honestly in a way I agree with you but remember this, many times I feel as if the community on crunchyroll itself is filled with 12-14 year olds trying to be 15,16,17. Hey I don't mind having a good friendship with someone of my interests and I would live to have a decent argument on things that we could know. But sure I do consider the fact we should get some type of relationship level on CR.
