I've recently been reading through a visual novel and have been loving it, definitely more engrossed in it than ANY book I have ever read. When I read a book or watch a show, I can pretty easily talk to anyone I know and they'll be able to have a good discussion with me.
It was the same while I'm reading through my visual novel, but after I thought a little it, it occurred to me that I want to talk to someone and discuss with them about my thought on what's happening, but I also realized that there's no one I can actually talk to in real life about it and it's driving me insane. I'm starting to find myself unable to concentrate during school because of this, but I can still keep my grades above average so I haven't really worried about it much. I could probably talk to people online and find others to discuss with, but it just feels different than discussing with a real person.

After thinking about that, I've also realized that I don't really have many real life friends (more like 1) who still watch anime actively/somewhat actively (keeping with maybe just 1 series or watching one that's finished). It might just be because I'm not in college yet and haven't met too many people outside of my hometown, but it still annoys me to no end that I can't vent out my thoughts except through online forums and guilds in MMORPG's.

^That whole rant is just why I thought about this post. Anyway, onto my question:
I was wondering, do many of you guys have friends who you can talk to about anime actively in real life? Also, to those who have gone to college, is there a larger variety of people than in, say high school?
Thanks for any responses in advance!

No. I have no RL friends and my family has no interest in the things I like beyond a few video games and A Game of Thrones.

There are tones of people who watch anime in college, it was one of the reasons why I got back into anime. In fact, the strangest thing I saw in college was like 10 grown men ( 3 of them were football players from my old high school ) sitting in front of the TV in the lounge area watching pokemon.

Umm... Like none.
I have those annoying 'friends' who are all "Kuh-waaiii!!" and "Cone-nichi-wah" and "I love animaaays and maaaiiinguh!"
But no one I can really talk to about this stuff.

I live a sad life... sniff sniff *tear*

I actually find it kinda awkward trying to talk to my real friends about stuff like anime, because explaining takes too long, and yeah. :L I do have some friends who like anime, though. owo But I'm generally more comfortable with my online friends with this stuff.

Most of my friends have read manga/watched anime at least once in their life.

I have a large group of friends who are crazy with manga/anime so it's perfectly fine for me.

If they ever judge me, or diss the manga/anime I like, then I go:

I had a few friends that like anime and manga about as much as I do, but then I graduated high school and moved from Mississippi to Pennsylvania. Now, I only have my younger sister and another relative, but I almost never talk to that particular cousin. I'm fine with that, though. I've always done my own thing, regardless of friends and family.

I don't really talk to people about anime and stuff it's just sometimes easier to keep my thoughts to myself rather then say them, and that just something I kinda live by and I guess it's kinda in that same aspect were I don't have a lot of friends. It just always alot easier to keep ur thoughts to yourself because i guess it's easier to know how you personally feel, or maybe it jus comes for my fear of being judged by others but I don't really know.
