If I'm really thick headed and unassuming I can get lots of girls to drool all over me and see their panties and bras.

Any guy who is emotionally distant and mildly attractive is automatically squirt worthy.

Short version: Watch Naruto, learn what love is.

Long version: Naruto Shippuden has taught me a lot, you know? Or maybe just one thing, but quite possibly the most important thing.

No, you can't pick a few random episodes - you have to watch the entire series so far to get where I'm coming from. I'm not talking about the obvious relationships or implications of love here, infatuations or puppy love, I'm talking about the real stuff: the actual bonds between people that grow with time and experience. I'm not sure I would have seen it (or understand it to the degree I do now) if I hadn't watched this anime.

In Shippuden, you see how even the smallest amount of time spent with someone (even from the previous series) creates a bond between people, and the more time someone spends with another, the more that bond is strengthened and tested. Any kind of intense or focused relationship like that can be labeled as "romantic" and the concept applies to our more common definition of the word - between lovers.

An old roommate of mine found this girl that he liked at an anime convention and was sure, almost from the get go, that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. She lived a two-hour drive away. For the six months between their meeting and their marriage (fast, you know? This is probably why:) he drove to her house 2-3 times a week. He saw that time was the most precious thing he could sacrifice for her and he knew that time spent together was the only thing that could strengthen that bond and solidify their friendship and her feelings for him, building trust and understanding that would last.

Naruto Shippuden captures this life lesson perfectly and has been building on it for almost 300 episodes. The creators of anime don't just pull these concepts out of thin air. They are observations from thousands of years of human history and things we see in our past and daily lives. Time is truly the only real resource any of us have to give, and to use that time for another person's benefit, or willingly spend that time with someone, or maybe even spending all your time training and searching so you can find someone you love and bring them back to your village where they belong - is truly romantic.

Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan taught me not to piss girls off or they'll more than likely bludgeon me to death with a blunt object.

I do not read manga. Anime has taught me how situation take place so that things don't get awkward. Even if in many anime awkward usually occurs. lol and NEVER give up until it's over; there's always a way if you can find it.

sound advice lol

that having harems will mean that the romance will never be resolved...except for a select few

that if you're childhood friends, you are 95% screwed in ever having a relationship with said friend

if there is ever an transfer student in the middle of the year and they sit next to you, you are now on their route, go for it haha

In School Days, don't go after a bastard who cheats on you and is a sex maniac. Plus, I found out that yandere girlfriends are lurking EVERYWHERE! .__.
