I was married for almost 16 years. At first, my wife (now my ex) was ok with it, and even watched a little, although she wasn't a big fan. Later, when I was in my mid 30's, she developed this, you're too old attitude. I'm the same person I am today at 40 that I was at 20. I may have a few wrinkles and some gray hair, but I'm the same guy. I want a woman that can recognize that.

Having said that, not a lot of women my age like anime. It's a big deal to me that the person I'm with does. However, I realize that's not always possible. So, liking anime is not a must have, but a highly desired trait.

My must have trait is a high intelligence. If she's smart enough to join Mensa, then everything else is negotiable.
She also has to accept who I am, that should be a given in any relationship.

Great to have/Highly desirable traits would be:
Strong willed - I want a woman that can stand beside me, not behind me.
Interested in Asian culture - I love martial arts, anime, Asian art, and my adopted Chinese daughter. I want a woman that does too
.
Professional - I want a woman that has a job that is interesting to her and something she is passionate about. I don't care what it specifically is.

Great to haves are negotiable as long at the intelligence is there. My ex was of average intelligence at best. I'm sorry if this sounds arrogant, but it was incredibly painful talking to her about things I was interested in.

If she is fairly intelligent but not quite Mensa smart, she'd need to have one of the great to have traits too.

I watched Spice and Wolf with her a little bit. I think she likes watching with me, though not the anime itself so much. Maybe it'll grow on her. She really likes the opening though.

My husband doesn't watch anime with me per se, but he will glimpse at what I'm watching enough that he knows what has happened in the series. He might watch an anime movie with me, but he doesn't look at anime like I do. He does respect it though.

My girlfriend is obsessed with anime like me. It makes our relationship easy. Though she likes more action oriented shows and I like drama/comedy and moeblobs.

It's not a big deal, I personally don't tell my significant others about my love for anime. I don't mind though since I believe in a relationship both people should have different interest to some degree, I wouldn't want to be with a girl who liked every single thing I did or one who has nothing in common. A little variety in hobbies and interest is good for a relationship and helps not let things get boring.

My boyfriend knows I watch, and have always watched, a lot of anime in my life time. He has no qualm with that and is willing to watch things with me and let me introduce him to anime that matches his interest as he's watched very little anime (only what aired on TV here when we were kids). It's not a big thing though, we've only watched anime together once, we tend to play games with each other a lot more frequently.

My most recent ex enjoyed anime more than I did xD, She introduced me to a few shows I had never seen before like Another and Trigun.

I've had ex girlfriends that don't care for anime, nor care that I watch it and I'm content with that. I don't think I'd ever be able to date someone who mocked or disliked anime altogether though.

Luckily we both share the same interests and we bond a lot through anime, manga and video games. She actually used to judge me for watching Fairy Tail but I forced her to give it a chance and now she's obsessed with it lol.

yes. without common interests, there would be nothing to talk about or do stuff together...



whether someone watches anime or not is not important to me. it's things like... does he like travelling? is he non-materialistic? etc.


I can't be with someone who thinks money/career are more important than me (ideally, i mean i'll probably compromise, you can never meet an ideal person anyway and there's no point of setting ideals cuz you'll end up being disappointed... but it's just for the purpose of this question).
