I have, and it wasn't too bad. Admittedly, though, it was a little disappointing when I found an awesome new show or just watched an amazing episode of something and I couldn't talk to them about it. They didn't really understand what I was babbling about and they weren't interested in trying to watch a show with me.

So "meh," I suppose. It's nice to date somebody with similar interests but it's hardly a deal breaker if they're more into other things. ( ´ ▽ ` )

I'd be delighted to date some chick with oddball colored hair that isn't a weeaboo.

my wife doesn't really like anime but she likes the Japanese culture and shes ok with the idea of moving to japan one day. she's ok with the fact i watch up to 5 hours of anime a night so its not really a problem if your dating someone who doesn't understand anime like us CR people.

Surely anime isn't your only interest?

That said, I'd find the need to talk about more than just Anime with any partner i meet, but excluding anime from the conversation? That could be limiting. I have a hard enough time talking to my Brother about anime, and he's actually slightly interested in it! Just because he doesn't keep up doesn't mean he didn't watch it growing up with me.

Someone who's not "up to date" is fine, someone who doesn't get it ain't fine. Someone who doesn't care.....that's fine, but we'd best have another interest.

Having differences in the relationship is good :3 it also means that you could actually get your partner interested in anime through yourself.
Personally I'm fortunate enough to have a boyfriend who enjoys and watches anime on a regular basis He's not an otaku like me, and he isn't as passionate about the genre as I am. But he is pretty into it, considering I didn't know anyone who even knew what anime was when I was growing and and in my early teens.
It's nice to have someone to disagree with and discuss anime with xD Great little debates about what the best anime opening ever is, and whether Attack on Titan is better than Needless (his favourite anime along with Soul Eater). And persuading him to read manga and him teasing me because I'm not up to date in Naruto xD (he reads the chapters in my presence just to wind me up xP)
It's great dating someone who loves anime, but it's not a deal breaker and there's sure as hell something more than that in a relationship

I have dated guys who were not into anime and I was okay with it. Then again, I don't hold 'liking anime' up as something that would make or break a possible relationship (I'm not implying that you do or anything).

It's fine with me if we have different interests...so long as he respects and lets me indulge in mine, I'll give him the same respect back...no worries.

I've never dated anyone who's anime fan either, but they weren't really opposed to it as long as I still spent time with them.
But do you guys here watch more mainstream TV shows? Like It's Always Sunny, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, that kind of stuff? Most people in North America that aren't really introduced to anime watch shows like that instead. And they're also fantastic!

I haven't dated anyone who was actually into anime. Haven't meet much people that were into it for starters lol. I would love to date someone who is into anime as long as other areas aren't lacking. That way I won't have to explain the really weird things that happen in certain shows lol. I watched mysterious girlfriend x on my main tv, and got a lot strange looks from my family.... never doing that again lmao
