Well, I don't exactly consider myself an otaku, but I do watch a considerable amount of anime.
With that being said, I have my circle of friends and I try to make friends with classmates in college. I have a girlfriend too, but i haven't stopped watching or reading any anime. I just don't watch it as frequently as my younger self.

well idk if I would consider myself a otaku I like watching anime but I don't watch everyday (mainly due to studies for my ACT test) and I don't collect manga or dvds or hang posters on my wall, but I guess I would consider myself lonely, got friends but none I can talk 2 about with anime, usually just friends I play sports with and that's about it xD

I'm a pretty big otaku, yet without the social stigma part. I can be social if I want to be, I just chose not to be. I've got a few otaku friends, and one closet-otaku. So, I'm not really lonely. Plus, I don't really like being around people in general. I like my quiet time, all the time. I'm kinda a-social, you could say. I'm terms of females? Eh, don't really care.

I've got enough time and also I know many people who like anime. Of these people at least 50% are female, so there is also no problem with having a girlfriend.

Loneliness isn't a prerequisite to being an otaku, nor does it condemn someone to become lonely. There are a relatively small amount of otaku so to find friends who also share the joy of anime can be tough, it doesn't make one less social its up to the person to define who they are. And there are people who think anime is childish/demonic etc. and will think of someone who indulges in it as such, which may add to the belief that being an otaku would naturally make you less social along with the large amount of time it takes to watch gross amounts of anime/read manga.

Basically, people like what they like, but it doesn't make you who you are. Though, it can define you at least to some extent.

So, I guess a better question to ask would be "Is there a connection to liking anime/manga and loneliness?" or "Does a person connect or resonate with anime because of their loneliness?". It depends on which anime and the individual person, since anime is a form of art, an expression of a persons thoughts, feelings, and emotions each anime is different in its own way and each person sees each anime differently. I think this question is similar to "Are most people who listen to music lonely?"

well i like anime .....but i dont watch it too much ...i like being alone but not too much ....i have friend and otaku friends but not much otaku friends , and i also have free time ..anyway i do like using my spare time by doing whatever comes in my mind and i tend to do it alone and without anyone help ....and that what makes me feel awesome well lets say i enjoy loneliness but not that kind of loneliness where you dont have anyone to talk to or without anyone asking you what are you doing..

No, not really.

I have a lot of friends who like animes, and we tend to talk a lot about the subject of anime
so I guess I'm not lonely ? XD.

Yes, but that's usually not a problem when you have a 2D waifu.
