May I procede to throw a bit in here as well. I been married now for many years, and I am an original gamer. I was tearing up atari and coleco before your moms and dads hit puberty lol. So video games have been my part of my life for most of my existance. If there is an "Original Gamer," I would be about as close to it as you could get. My wife likes to sit down and play some, but she isn't no where near my level. She like the cinematic parts of the game most of all, and likes to watch me play parts that have those type of effects. So I got lucky that she has some interest, but I only know of a couple hard core gamer chicks. It can be easy to run into one on games like Halo and Left 4 Dead. They are out there, and you have to peak their interest during the game to get them to friend you. All the gamer chicks get tons of requests, so stand out, save their ass a few times, and don't talk like the other jerks in the party that are usually hitting on them or degrading them in some way cause they are a girl that can handle the controller better than they can. Once you get on the friend side, make it count, and you can find you someone with that same interest.
As for the anime, my wife didn't know much about my interest, and my interest was just in passing. I liked it, but wasn't a hard core fan, but it was there. And I live in Hillbilly country in Kentucky, so I know about the way people act in general if they find out, not so much about the video games but the anime, all they can see is kinky japanese porn. As netflix, hulu came into my life, they have a wide selection of older series, so I started watching them on my own. I work midnights and have plenty of time so would watch while everyone was asleep.
One day I broke and told her about what I had been watching, and it didn't bother her at all. She sat down and wanted to watch what I was, wanting to keep the same interests in each other. Did she love it? No, not like me, but she did like it, and will watch with me certain series, her favorite is funny harems, and the like. Her favs have been Shuffle and Rosario + Vampire, and she is starting to look at mangas that I have dragged in. Hell, she bought me my first figurine which was BellDandy, and several since then. But her interests in certain things have mixed with mine, and now she is into the animeish Volks ball jointed dolls. I have watched stuff on youtube with her about it, and the girls on there seem to like anime as well, so if you can find a girl into Volks or some other anime type doll ( there are plenty out there), they seem to like anime somewhat, if not alot. These girls are obsessive, and if you share their obsessive side, it gains some good ground with them.
So maybe try these ideas out a bit, see how it works for you. You probably won't find someone in your area using these things, but you may find someone, and who knows, a little move may be in order. And don't be afraid to try different areas around Atlanta. Like I said, no interest in anime in my population here, but drive alittle over 3 hours north and there are asian festivals each year that have such things, and a cosplay convention every year. Sometimes things like this aren't that far way, and if you can mingle and talk, you can at least make some friends, if not more.
Hope this gives ya some ideas...



wow thanks

Haha, well, good luck you all.
I can't say much, but where I'm from, all the girls who are into anime either watch shoujo exclusively, or they're hardcore shipping otaku. Even if you do find someone that share interests with you, I can't say they love it the same way. Even manga and video games have several different genres to them.

The good thing about having a girlfriend not into anime / video games. Is there won't be any problems (figuring out who keeps whats series / game) if you ever split up. Very practical if you have limited editions and/or out of print series / games.

You're the same as me buddy. I'm actually trying to find a woman myself that's interested in Video Games/Anime but it's pretty difficult. I actually have a medical problem called "Turrets Syndrome", People look at me and think that I'm probably doing drugs or I'm crazy; What I usually do is ignore them but they continue looking at me, laugh, and point. It hurts but I'm not going to let this problem hold be back from finding the girl of my dreams! Also I live in California I wish you luck and don't let anybody hold you back try your best on finding your girl bud!

I live in Georgia so I honestly can say, it's the area you live in. Now if you were to come up to Marietta, Kennesaw, Acworth, or definitely Atlanta, you would find a lot of women into "Anime/Manga Videogames" as you put it.

I don't think any woman wants to date a fat guy.

I live technically in 3 cities. Acworth, Kennesaw and Woodstock. The perks of living on the city line. My backyard is Woodstock, have an Acworth address and really live in Kennesaw.
Well at least you're venturing out. Look up events in Atlanta, even if you don't find a girlfriend, you'll find more people that share your interest.

Hey I just wanted to throw out my two cents. It is easier to get chicks if you take care of your body, but my gf has dated fat guys and she is hella hot. she also plays league of legends like its her job and watches anime with me. Therefore, you just have to change the way you are around girls. It is hard to do, but if you can become that guy that can make lots of friends that are girls then you will be golden. GL!
