Does it really matter to find someone to like who is into anime and games? I have been with my fiance for the past seven years. I am the one in the relationship who is into anime and games. Him on the other hand, likes the outdoors. And yet, we are still able to connect with one another. I did bring him into my world and me into his. On some days, we would play games or watch anime and on some other days, I would go with him when he wants to fish or needs help with fixing his motorcycle/car.

How we met was at a bookstore, he was reading a car magazine and I was reading manga. He came to my table when he gave up his table for a family. (I was surprised when he did that - love a guy with courtesy) When I saw him reading a car magazine (Nissan Skyline R-34, I think) was on the cover. And I said, "So, you like the Skyline? Me, I like the Supra. I fell in love at first sight when I saw the Supra." And we had a pleasant conversation after that. We exchanged numbers and that was the end of that. So I guess our common ground at that time was cars.

Pretty much what I am trying to tell you, you don't need to find someone who likes anime or games. Find someone you can connect with (mentally - has the same views in life as you) and will like you for who you are.

Oh, forgot to mention, we have a six almost seven years difference in age gap.

You're an angel. I agree completely.

There are girls in my area that are interested in anime and manga. I don't really hang out with them or their male counterparts though. I'm kind of a loner.

Y'all are all talking about how you can't find a girl with similar interests as you in the physical realm, and all I have to say is I can't find a man that shares the same interests as I do. Sure, there are some decent guys that I meet who are nice and enjoy movies and whatnot, but they don't really have much of an interest in the gaming scene or in the anime scene.

My last boyfriend was a gamer and liked anime, which was really nice. I worry that I won't be able to find those traits in another man. But, see, my issue is that I can be a little stand-offish at times. Not only that, but even though I have moments where I am pretty hyper and full of energy, I have days where I am pretty serious and lethargic; hungry for my own personal space. I'm also picky. I want a man who is as smart as I am, or smarter. Not to say I am a genius or anything, but I want to be able to hold in-depth conversations about topics with someone who won't get offended if I don't agree with them on something.

I'm in Japan, though. So it kind of puts a damper on things. I don't really want to date a Japanese man. The bridge in cultures is pretty vast, and it usually ends up with me pretty much being told (not directly, of course) that I need to conform to the Japanese way. Long story short, when Japanese men date me they usually end up realizing that they want to date a Japanese woman who is willing to quit her job, be a full-time house wife, and clean, cook, do all the womanly things and raise the children. Aaaaaand... I don't want to do that. :D


Actually my fiance is the first woman I've been with that likes anime and she's Okinawan! It is really nice but her sister is the one who really loves it. Sometimes she gets jealous when her sister and I are talking about Naruto and we can understand what the other is talking about even though her sister can't speak English and my Japanese is so-so. I can actually see a Japanese guy saying that to an American girl which is probably why I don't see many, if any, Japanese male-American female couples. Good luck out there in mainland although it probably doesn't help that Japanese men tend to be on the shy side when it comes to relationships.

I know a few but they also seem to be dating my damn friends when I meet them....and most of the time I don't even know they are going out when I am going for her until I go to a friends house and she is randomly there or at a party and just start making out....They are good looking too.... but I would never f up a friend's relationship with a girl just to get with her but because of it I hardly ever have a girl of my own. Damn my luck.

We exist. Though I don't have much to add, a convention is a good idea. I live in GA also, and I know that there are several big cons that come to ATL.

You'd probably be better off just trying to make friends with girls that have those interests first though. Just because she likes video games and anime doesn't mean you'll hit it off/get along. Also it doesn't REALLY matter when it comes down to loving someone. Having separate interests is healthy for a relationship.

I found one, she was indifferent about anime and drama for a while until I got her hooked on a really good Jdrama.

Basically you have to turn her into a fangirl. Might take some work but it is possible.

Okay, well all you people must live in no man's land or something, because I am most definitely female (as are all my female friends) and we are all pretty heavily involved with anime, music and video games.

Granted, I am from the Midwest (MO and AR), and I currently live in Japan, but that aside.. there have always been like a crapton of females interested in this stuff. Most of them are quiet. Not shy, just quiet.

I personally think some of you guys have your standards set too high. You are only interested in females if they look like Olivia Munn or Kari off of Mythbusters.

Unfortunately, most of us females are just like you guys.. we're average looking. :P

Honestly, the female fandom from anime alone is enough to drive me insane. They annoy me.

You should try going to a convention of some sort (either anime, gaming or science fiction).. trust me, you will explode from the sheer output of crazy, but there are lots of females there who are interested in most of the same things you are.
