Have you ever had the opportunity to date a fellow otaku?

I've dated athletes, cowgirls, religious girls (oddly enough haven't dated non-religious girls, think they're rare where I'm from) and nerdy girls but I haven't dated anybody I felt I had a real connection with. They were cool people and we had a couple things in common but I kind of always knew that they wouldn't be long term relationships. I always kind of thought that if I could find a genuine otaku girl or maybe an artist, someone who related to my more whimsical side then I would be more into having a long lasting relationship with them. Since I'm the only person I know IRL that likes anime, art, cyberpunk and fantasy themes, I haven't had an opportunity to date someone who likes those same kind of things. Has anyone ever had the opportunity to date a fellow otaku? If you have, was it awesome or was it not as cool as you thought it would be? I'm just curious

I wouldn't label either of us as 'otakus' per say, but my girlfriend and I both share a lot of interests (RPGs, anime, cats, etc.). It certainly gives us more to talk about, but it isn't the holy grail that everyone thinks it is. It's still a relationship like any other, so they're going to get tired of you prattling on about something no matter how much they like it too XD

No. My first boyfriend didn't like anime, and wasn't even willing to give it a chance at all.

Nope.

Of the people I know personally (i.e., not online), there's less than a handful of them that like anime, games, etc. I would love to meet a girl with similar interests but that would be difficult as I'm also into fitness / working out

Awesome feedback. I guess I'm not that much otaku either but I do enjoy anime, which I guess necessarily doesn't mean I'm otaku but I think it wold be nice to date someone on that end of the spectrum, just to see.

Sadly no. If you don't want to wait till the day you magically stumble on a girl /guy who loves Anime as much you do, there's Otaku dating sites .

I've actually kind of gave those sites a look but they always feel like they're poorly structured and aren't that great to use. Have you found one you liked?

To first date a fellow otaku I would have to consider myself an otaku, which I don't. So essentially I will never date a fellow otaku because I will never consider myself one.


Now without being an ass: Have I dated someone who happens to like anime/manga. Yes. It was the same as any other girl I have dated though just with different interests though. She never mentioned being an otaku, of course when we dated this was before I got into anime really, so even if she said she was I probably wouldn't have known what she was talking about.

Yes that's definitely tru they're poorly structure and no I haven't.

I would actually have to go on a date for something like this to actually happen.
