I got my girlfriend into anime. We watch it together pretty much daily. She watched some stuff as a kid like Dragonball but got back into it dating me. Good times.

Haven't had a girlfriend who liked anime yet but I'm so far gone into loving anime. I doubt someone who doesn't would be able to put up with me. A girl that collects manga would probably be my ideal match. Than we could combine our collections! :3 but that might not be good either since our wallets would cringe. So a significant other doesn't have to watch/like anime but if they did, it would be a pretty sweet deal.

Yeah, he barks when we watch anime together.

Yes. We have a lot of favorites in common, but we have less overlap outside of those.

If I had a gf, yes, I would prefer she be able to at least watch it (or understand that I watch it)...
some of my exes loved it...though one turned into a cheating **** and the other left for mutual reasons and we are still on good terms :)....

Well mine got me into anime... I just took it to a whole new level... he likes it and likes to watch anime English dubs while I don't really care... He still has not watch attack on titan for that reason alone. He introduced me to Read or Die and I introduced him to Darker than Black.

He does make fun of me for watching girly anime like Clannad and how much I get into it. But I am okay with that.

Depends on the series. My wife really liked Aria, Vampire Princess Miyu and Ghost in the Shell, did not get into Serial Experiments Lain or Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos. Hoping she will like Girls und Panzer. Never bothered me about watching without her.

With one ex actually we both shared a common interest in but the irony came later when I realized she was way ahead of me in multiple series.

I met my wife 10 years ago in a Digimon chat room. We love watching anime together far more than we ever did alone, and we've since started our own manga

Me and my boyfriend are both huge geeks.
He watches anime too, but he's not an otaku like me - he just casually watches it when he feels like it. We've watched a couple of things together like One Piece and Log Horizon, and we constantly watch anime paradoys like Team Four Star.

We also both play pen and paper games like Dungeons and Dragons and Dark Heresy - we also go LARPing (Live Action Role Playing) and we both have our own swords and armour.
My boyfriend is more into PC and console gaming than I am - although I am mad about it as well; I just don't do it as frequently. I'm more of a film and wrestling buff :3

My girlfriend well i guess ex dosent watch anime dosent like, wouldn't even give it a chance. You would pretty much make fun of me for watching it.

Do any of you look for significant others who enjoy the same things you do, or is it not really a big deal?


OP:
Dump her ASAP.
Ex? Good. Mission accomplished.

This isn't about liking anime or not, she is MAKING FUN OF YOU for something you enjoy and not even trying it.
That's bad. You are not describing an open minded caring person willing to explore who you are.
You are describing a person looking to change who you are and try nothing new.

Find someone that either enjoys what you do, or at the very least says "I'm really glad you enjoy that, but it isn't my thing; I'll go do this while you watch"

If someone you are dating ever says "Well, if you are with me you have to get rid of ____, can't do ____" GTFO.
(Unless it's some seriously bad heath habit, something illegal, ect you know you should stop)

My wife watches anime with me, plays D&D, videogames, goes to cons with me, and cosplays mai waifu - because she identifies with her. (And before the stereotypes start, she's a ballerina too)
The dream life is possible. Find someone you truly enjoy being with.
