I'd be okay with it, more to talk about, and would probably be introduced to genres I normally wouldn't watch.

I suppose it would be a bonus.

I'd be more inclined to date someone who watched anime and such. Mainly because then there would be something we had in common and they wouldn't look at me strange for my collection of Manga and stuff. (Rather small collection right now, but I have plans to greatly expand it within the next year)

If I date someone, she HAS to at least like anime.
Anime is my main hobby and passion.

Confused? You're married? Or just saying? Why not a vegetarian?

They don't have to be as into it as I am, but he's gotta be cool with at least trying out some of my favs.

It's one of my main interests so it's definitely desirable, though if they shared all of my other main interests, I'd be cool with accepting a disinterest in anime as long as my occasionally geeking out over it wouldn't be an issue.

This goes for reading manga as well, especially since I'm a huge book nerd.

As much as I would like her to watch anime or be a semi otaku I would settle for her to just accept my hobbies as I would her's.

All the girls that I've dated were not into anime at all. Most of the girls I hang around with aren't really into that stuff anyways so it's never really been a necessity, I prioritize other qualities (like partying, liking the outdoors, also liking to chill out and relax, not vegetarian, preferably informed citizen (I'd almost say this is a necessity), and likes to work out, haha. Also: sweet, kind, caring, confident, outgoing enough, isn't afraid to speak her mind (no passive aggression, just tell me if you're pissed off!), open for change, and a hard worker/determined.... If my wife could have about a third or more of those qualities I'd be a very happy guy methinks, but I'm open to surprises; anyways rant over). But it'd certainly be a plus if she did watch anime! As long as she's open to it/doesn't care that I like it then it's not a problem.

With relationships you learn to deal with your partner's quirks and preferences, if you like them enough then you can let some things go. For example my first girlfriend LOVED America's Next Top Model and those MTV hook up shows.... You just learn to live with it after a while!


Dude, the frat boy party scene is not where you go to find people interested in anime from my experience. XD

Well I have dated women outside of nerd culture in general. In fact I have never dated from within. Obviously it has never worked out. So, that will probably need to change.

I made a comment the other day that I think I need to stop trying to meet people that will go to cons with me and in stead go to cons and meet people who will do stuff with me IRL as well.

That old saying about opposites attract is a bit of hogwash in my eyes.

I guess I'd be more inclined to date someone who like anime. First I'd have to want to date them though. Friends will probably be better at this time for me. I'm so socially awkward I'd just be quiet and blush a lot most likely if I dated someone.

My gf isn't into anime, but she's into gaming which is what I am into as well, so I suppose it balances out.

I wish she were into anime though..
