The people I have talked to, whom are relationships or married, often joke around that they give up something for the other person. Part of it is true but it should it be something that makes you a better person for them. You should date someone that lets you keep enjoying the things you like and doesn't change it.

The tolerance factor would play a deciding role in if I'd like them. They don't have to like it but they can't have an issue with me liking it...

Exactly.

If the question is "Would you date someone who doesn't like anime?," my answer depends on what else she likes and what else we have in common.

But if the question is "Would you date someone who tries to force you into not watching anime?," my answer is a very simple "NO".

Would you date someone that openly dislikes anime like her?
Last year there was also a woman in Japan who threw away her husband's anime collection.

You mentioned that before on another thread about your friend.

I wouldn't mind dating someone who didn't enjoy anime or video games. But if the person respects my hobbies and don't force me stop loving them then that is okay. I'll respect whatever his hobbies are and won't force him to stop loving them. Somehow, we'll probably find that one something me and him can both enjoy together. I believe opposites can attract.

Far as your friend, he just found the wrong person to love.

Depends. You're asking one thing and bringing up a different point. There's a difference between being with someone who dislikes anime, and being with someone who forces you to stop being yourself. The former I'd deal with, the latter I wouldn't.

I wouldn't date someone who was against me watching anime. If I was dating someone who just doesn't watch it and doesn't care that I watch it then i wouldn't mind.

Best scenerio would be we both like anime.

Would probably not be much of a problem.
They'd already know what they signed up for by the time they agree to even take me on anyway.

Last girl I met really just hated Japan in general. The only positive thing she ever said about it was Fast and Furious was set there once, but even then she hated that one...




She was right to hate that one. It was terrible lol.

To answer the OP, yes I'd date a girl that wasn't into anime.....

That story about that Japanese couple was pretty insane.

And no , I wouldn't date someone who openly disliked it.

Nope, if they don't enjoy it for themselves sure, but if they make me stop no.

Throw away my anime collection? I'LL THROW AWAY YOUR SPORTS COLLECTION.

If they dislike it that is fine BUT DO NOT tell ME what to DO! If I wanna play my games and watch my anime, I have all rights to as I am my own person and an adult. If they hate it and tell me not to do certain things well I would say with a big smile:
