OK! I am aTOTALanime otaku!!!!! But, its soo lonely being the only one in my (reality) social life that is obsessed with it! 。・゚゚・(>д<)・゚゚・。
I have joined like websites and stuff, but no one wants to actually get close
SOOOOO I was wondering, anybody else feel the same?! Any opinions on why you prefer to keep to yourself?? And can you be my friend?? We can exchange numbers, and obsess with each other, OR a group of awesomeness texts!!

I hardly know anyone obsessed with anime (like 7 people).
A good way to find friends that are also into anime is to go to conventions nearby. i met some awesome people there :D
I can't text though because my phone doesn't support long distance.

my boyfriend likes anime. but not as much as I do. my other friends think it's "gay." I don't really care. They can like their Kid Cudi, and I can like my Spike Spiegel.

Uhh, no I said that I only know 7 people obsessed with anime. I have more than 7 friends, the rest just aren't into anime.
I didn't even mention my personal friends.
Where did you get that assumption?
and anyway, what's wrong with 7 friends? It's better to have 7 good friends rather than 1000 bad friends don't you think?

It's pretty hard finding a friend within a specific interest who is at the same level of obsessed as you are. I mean, I would hate a friend who talked only about anime and it would also suck if they weren't into it as much as I? And then we'd also have to get along on our morals views, comedic tastes, etc. man this sounds like a lot of work. It's really not that hard though on the internet. There's plenty of anime fans. Just keep trying and don't wait for people to come to you.

So, this seems mostly like a personal thread explicitly to make friends, and starting new personal threads on Crunchyroll isn't allowed, so I'm going to close it, especially since we also do already have a few threads dealing with friendship and making friends. But I do have some suggestions.

1) Introduce yourself in the introductions thread if you haven't already. /forumtopic-3/introductions

2) For advice, post in the General Help/Advice thread: /forumtopic-1099/the-general-helpadvice-thread

(Both of those are "sticky" topics in the General Discussion Forum

3) Join in some of the discussions on the forums, both in General Discussion and in Anime.

4) Browse the groups, and join a couple that interest you. http://www.crunchyroll.com/groups

5) Read, and post in, some of the existing discussions where other users talk about friendship and making friends:

/forumtopic-781734/making-friends-on-crunchyroll-how
/forumtopic-782953/do-you-find-it-harder-to-make-friends-as-an-adult
/forumtopic-794885/how-difficult-do-you-find-meeting-people-to-talk-about-animemanga-with
/forumtopic-784881/making-friends
/forumtopic-797453/friends-and-anime-discussion

As to some of your questions about what others feel about making friends, especially anime-loving ones, here's my situation:

I like anime and spend a lot of time watching, but I don't think I'm obsessed with it. I like having friends and I do have a few that I occasionally spend time with, but it's often easier just sticking to myself and doing my own thing--I really like being alone so I don't seek out getting close. However, I enjoy discussions about anime with folks on the forum here, and that's satisfying enough for me.
