Is it healthy to only be attracted to 2-D things?
Posted 7/24/15
Im sure there's not too much of this here but there's a faction of anime/etc fans who are only into 2-D, and deny 3-D. It's okay to feel attracted to characters slightly, but the extreme... is this healthy? I dont think it is. What do you say?

How do you define healthy???

Yes.

0 chance of getting STI. No marital problems. No dramas.

It shouldn't really matter lol you like what you like and it's fine as long as it doesn't hurt anyone right? let's be real about this.....nobody gets hurt from someone liking 2-D stuff .__.

I guess they probably won't have as many of some types of problems but something is surely wrong with people who are unable to function in reality like that. It feels like it could be escapism, extreme obsession, something of the like.

It might not hurt you physically, but if someone is so head over heels with the 2D stuff, I don't think they'll ever be satisfied. 2D things can't reciprocate affection and to pretend that they do is borderline deranged. Humans are designed to be social creatures and we need the company of others. Barring some rare case in which the person doesn't feel the need to be with others, this is likely to have a bad psychological effect. Attraction with a fictional character is a manifestation of the desire to have a partner, anyway,. Even if the person genuinely doesn't feel that they need any real person's company, that is going to make it difficult to survive in mainstream society.

going by Erickson's stages of life it might lead to failed challenges and a depressive outlook in later years. But's that only if you buy into Erikson
AND see 2D attraction as an impediment to his stages (which it could easily be)

but at the end you are hurt that you can't truly have them; unless its one of those human size pillows and treat it as such. .. then you might need help ._.



this is just my personal opinion. im not saying its fact.

You can't a have an interpersonal relationship with a 2D picture. If someone is content with this I suppose it's OK, but I would not call it emotionally healthy.

There are people who aren't sexually attracted to anything so I don't think it is a problem by itself. You could have a fulfilling life without a traditional romantic relationship as long as you don't let it stop you from forming relationships with real people in general.

Doesn't hurt anyone so I don't see it as something that's unhealthy.

I question if being attracted to real people is healthy in the first place just because it came first doesn't mean it has to be right. Like how we used to make holes into our heads to get rid of headache, nowadays we take medicine. All hail 2D!

Frankly I don't think anyone should care. Being only attracted to 2D isn't a detriment to the people around them, and if that's their choice, so be it.

Do what you want, but the 2D world was built to simulate the 3D, and will never surpass it in a logical view
