Coming from a family of gamer girls, I'd first say that we're out there. I have several friends that like anime/video games. When we meet a guy that has the same anime/video game interests, the guy is usually thrilled, but they rarely get the guts to ask us out. I'll point out is that even if we like anime and games, I would never encourage a guy to come after me if he didn't display some kind of interests outside of anime or video games. You need to have a normal switch. I would rather (and usually do) date a guy not into that stuff if he's really cool and has varied interests, because most people have several interests. Also, because he has varied interests, he usually won't object to a really basic anime, like Cowboy Bebop or Bleach.

Like this girl: http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/tv/what-not-to-wear/videos/victorias-virtually-nonexistent-style.htm
If you come off like this girl(her appearance aside), I'm strictly talking about her personality and the fact that she can't recognize that no one around her is following or even interested in her hobby. If you come off that way and ONLY that way, I'm going to shut you down, even if you ALSO think Code Geass and Gintama are super-awesome shows and the bridge campaign on L4D2 is your favorite one, too. Doesn't matter, you will be friend-zoned.

Another thing I'll say is that just like not every single girl you meet is a total babe, not every girl you meet who likes anime is going to be a total hottie. We come in all shapes and sizes. You might want to take a look in a mirror sometime. If the girls you're going after are in a different category than you as far as looks go, you're going to get rejected almost every time. You might have more success (and enjoy the depth of personality and character you'll usually find) if you look for someone whose physical looks match yours. If you're too shallow to do that, then good luck. Enjoy being lonely and the feel of your right hand. If you're not too shallow to do that, you'll probably end up just fine, sooner or later.


100% true for me and many of my (female) friends. Honestly, I know more girls that are into anime/manga (some of my great friends) than I do guys, because often the guys I meet who are really into anime are... well.. a bit too into it. It's all they are interested in, and they don't seem to know other interests and are just chronically socially awkward, that is a huge turnoff. (Unfortunately I'm speaking from experience here. But that is a post for another day...)

Truthfully, it's frustrating on my end because I see so many posts like these that are just like "girls' don't like anime and that's why I don't have a girlfriend". Many, many girls like anime and manga and video games, it's just that those girls are human beings with other interests as well, and want to be liked for other things too, and if you come across, as mcdocrunch so very accurately pointed out, as hyper-obsessed about it, it's going to be creepy. It would be creepy to be too obsessed with anything. So in my experience, the problem is not that girls (like me) don't like anime, it's that I don't want to say anything about liking anime to guys until they know them well. Otherwise, shearly based on the fact that I watch anime and am attractive enough, I have 10 lonely, only involved in anime club, haven't left their room, creepy guys instantly falling in love with me simply because I watch a genre of cartoon. (This is of course not to say that all guys to watch anime are like this. In fact, many probably aren't, but as always, it's those few that do do this that really make it nerve wracking to be open to dating anyone who seems a bit too into anime.)

As mcdocrunch said, I don't intend to be harsh or overly blunt, but I think it's an important perspective in this conversation that sometimes falls to the wayside.

I totally agree with you there. I myself have played video games since I was young and know other girls that have as well. There are tons out there into manga/anime too. But any girl will tell you that she wants a guy who's not so into his own imaginary world. As long as he has a few other interests and a good personality to go along with the anime and gaming he should have no problem finding a girl with the same interests. But I myself am not interested in a guy who doesn't have the balls to even try and ask me out after finding out about my hobbies (gaming, anime, manga).

I lived in Georgia for a while, and not only do I watch anime, I also play and have played video games professionally throughout my life. There are plenty of people out there are of both genders and of all ages that love anime and/or gaming. Sometimes you can't judge a book by its cover though. Plenty of people are absolutely dumbfounded when they find I out that I game and watch anime, and while it's silly to see people get excited for that reason alone, usually the only reason they wind up so surprised is that they never thought to ask in the first place. Not everyone exactly advertises what activities they enjoy in their spare time, and many girls actually like to keep the fact that they game underwraps because it can draw a lot of unwanted attention and scrutiny.

Beyond that though, looking for a relationship solely based on the mutual interest of anime or gaming is just as shallow as only dating someone for their physical appearance or for their bank account. It takes a lot more than a joint love of Code Geass (example) to form a good foundation for a relationship. While you are fretting over a female (or in some other people's cases, a male), not being interested in your love for anime or gaming, you could be passing up on some truly great people if you only just get to know them. Plenty of couples and friends don't share every single interest, and there are also plenty of occassions when one person can introduce the other to something. I've gotten several of my friends and ex-boyfriends interested in anime as time has gone by. Everyone has to find out about anime from somewhere
