The line is when you deal with the void in you by adopting a fictional character as a wife or husband.

Deal with your void like normal people. Drinking, drugs, hobbies, burying it, finding a real human being and developing a relationship with them, burying it, seeing a therapist, exercise, burying it....ect.

I deal with my emotions like a real man. -I pretend they don't exist and bury them.- Just look at me! Mentally balanced and stable. Functional member of society. Moonlights as a murderer. Is totally normal.


Do you take long walks in graveyards as well?

The line tells me to be fine with it as long as I know my waifu is fictional. If she turns real however...

I think having a crush on a character is perfectly fine and normal. Even though fictional characters are fictional, we, at some level, see fictional characters as people. Characters are designed so that we can relate to them, empathize, and become emotionally attached (or even detached) to them, just like people in the real world.

The difference between a fictional character and a real person however, is that the character cannot live beyond the scope of his/her story. And because you exist outside of his/her story, he/she can't actually hear you, hold honest conversations with you, or even think about you. Ultimately, he/she cannot hold a real, mutual relationship with you.

I think it's fine if people have crushes on characters, but I draw the line when people try to use their character-viewer relationship to substitute for real world relationships. Give the real world a chance.

I mean, I'm a pretty shy guy, and I often find it exhausting to be around people, but I can't imagine tossing away the idea of having relationships with real people. Real people can hear to you, converse with you, and genuinely care for you. You can hold mutual relationships with real people. It'd be a waste to deny yourself of these experiences!

In my opinion it's when you want to go further than just calling them your waifu. Not that I really care, mindst you. If they're not harming anyone, especially in our overpopulated world, if they want to be with an anime character that seriously I'm not going to stop them.

I think that you have crossed the line already when you start saying that you "have a relationship" with you waifu/husbando seriously or when you call 3D(DP) to real people.

I think it's crossing the line if you actually truly believe you have a waifu/husbando. In most cases, I think people are just joking and using the terms to sound funny, which may be weird but is alright :3

Honestly? I see "waifu" as a way to describe any character whose moe breaks the 2d/3d barrier. For me it'd be Komine Sachi from Grisaia no Kajitsu. Honestly one of the first characters in any eroge/vn to elicit the "hnng" reaction from me, and I've played through quite a few really good ones.

In short, calling a character your "waifu" is pretty much just declaring your fandom to me.
