They say "opposites attract". I believe it.

I wouldn't only seek out someone who loves anime and I also wouldn't turn someone down just because they don't watch it. I don't like to limit myself. If they like happen to like anime then...great! I can share my love with you. If not then I have my otaku friends. No biggie

Hmm, dating someone would require me leaving my room and my anime marathons and going outside. Looks like there's a problem here Seriously though, doesn't really matter to me, if I am with a girl who makes me happy that's fine. If she likes anime sweet, if not there are plenty of other things that we could have in common. Don't understand how it could be a deal breaker for someone, but hey to each their own right?

It'd be cool to date somebody who likes anime. It would give us more to talk about and more similarities but if they don't like anime that's fine. As long as they don't hate on anime and not let me watch it

marry me? jokesjokes

It probably wouldn't be a deal breaker if they didn't watch anime. But it would be a deal breaker if they didn't like my hobby of liking anime. And if they liked anime as well... I'm sold...

Does she need to like anime? no. Does she need to respect the fact that I do as much as I understand she likes country music, rap or *shudder* daytime soap operas? yes. The best relationships are those of acceptance and open-mindedness.

As long as she respects the fact that anime is a hobby for me. I don't believe that the person I date needs to like the same hobby. In fact I'd even go as far as to say it's good to have variety in a relationship so you can get time for yourselves as opposed to you better half enjoying everything you do.

I'd prefer to date someone who has a common interest with me, doesn't have to be anime. Things to do and talk about out run out pretty fast.

I couldn't date someone who hates anime. I want to be able to share anime with my partner and enjoy it together, even if he isn't as into it as I am. At least a movie here and there and enough understanding to talk about it would be nice. It's too much a part of my life though to date someone who hated it.

While not required, it would definitely be a plus.

as long as they can differentiate the difference between anime realm and reality realm...

don't want nobody coming up to me saying I have to wear cat ears while we're having adult fun... am not into that.

As much as I like anime, I'd prefer they rather be indifferent. I don't have a whole lot to say when it comes to anime. I watch it and that's really it, and I'm perfectly fine with that.

Edit: So I want to reformat this forum because I feel that, when I overlooked the original wording, I severely messed up what I intended on asking in the first place. Just to avoid any confusion, here's a better question:

Do you prefer to date people who like anime or consider themselves anime otaku? Is dating someone that likes anime a priority? (by that, I mean do you seek out those who are interested in anime; doesn't mean you have to turn away anyone who wants to date you, but doesn't care for anime). Do you think a mutual interest in anime can create a closer relationship or does it not matter? Does it bother you if you date someone who hates anime?

Or do you prefer to keep your interest in anime separate from your love life or simply do not care?

I apologize for my original wording; I could see how that didn't sound right.

It would be awesome if she was into anime but so long as she understands i like it & tries not to make me give up that part of my life then its cool

It's just an added bonus.
