It's totally fine, as long as the person your dating doesn't care that you like other things apart from them.

The thing is, since Waifus's are not objectively real, it can be seen as not being cheating since they are not "real".

It's similar to saying, "I love (the game) Monopoly". You love Monopoly and play Monopoly, but you aren't going to cheat on your wife with Monopoly, so she can't really hate you loving it. Replace Monopoly with a family member and it's the same thing.

If someone can't deal with them not being the only thing that you love, then you might want to think of going out with someone else.


You could, however, love Monopoly to the point where you cheat on your wife with someone cosplaying as Uncle Pennybags.

you make no sense lol. Love isn't objectively real?

People don't love monopoly the same way they love a waifu wtf?

I have no idea why people make these "scientific" comparisons without making any sense

They're not jealous of the real/imaginary object. They're jealous of the fact that you're sharing your heart with it/them, and I don't mean love, I mean like romantic or even sexual feelings. It's the act & emotions they're jealous of, not the thing itself. Doesn't have to be real, since love wasn't an object to begin with.

I have a waifu and a girlfirend, as long as you don't act creepy and carry a hugging pillow all day then it's not a big thing. My girlfirned knows and I bought a figure of my waifu but I don't have anything else of her short of one little card (trading card) so it's not like I'm flaunting her all day as she's among a hundred other figures.

Never got to the point of obsessed about an anime character myself. A show, of course, but not a character. The closest I came I guess was Nausicaa from "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind" when I was like errr 8. Nothing against it though, people express love in all kinds of ways as long as it doesn't negatively impact their lives I don't see anything wrong with it.

Eh...well....I have an actual husband, and several husbandos. Loving a character and loving a real person are two different things. A waifu/husbando will never complain about chores (conversely, they won't do any either). A Waifu/ husbando will never argue with you over money/the mortgage/how to raise your kids, but you'll never build a home together, team together through struggles, or see each other in the weird/cute actions of your children.

Sorry I didn't think about the jealousy being about you sharing your heart with it/them rather than about the object itself. You're right about not loving a waifu and Monopoly the same way.

I have seen many depictions of a boyfriend/girlfriend being jealous of a close relationship with a family member. From the outside, it can be hard to differentiate between romantic love and platonic love. I mistakingly assumed that since you can't pursue love with a waifu in the same way as a real person, that it was platonic love. I thought that jealousy of a waifu was the significant other not being able to differentiate between romantic and platonic love, but it seems that I was the one making the mistake.

Looks like I was wrong, sorry. Probably due to me never actually having a waifu, only female characters that I liked because I thought they were cool.

Why would one need a girlfriend when they got a waifu? The motto is: No waifu, no laifu!
Posted 5/29/16
Usually. Why would you resort to falling in love with a character? Likely because there's no one there for you in real life and it's also likely that no one ever will be.

I have no idea. I can't imagine being fascinated by an animated character so much that I'd name one my husbando?

I divorced my first Waifu long ago, but what could you expect from the situation? She was an up and coming Idol involved in a love triangle with a wise-ass young Veritech pilot who left her for a blonde space-sailor floozy. I could never have expected her to give up her performing career for a guy like me, I was just her rebound fling after all . When I told my former Otaku GF about the situation she said she could easily relate as her ex-BF "Arsene" left her to go on the lam after being setup by his one true love..."a thieving skank!" as she put it.
