I have four or five close friends, and they all watch anime. It seems like they all dislike talking about it thought, and none of them watch it nearly as much as me. Do you guys have any? And if not, how do you cope with it? I'm horrible an making conversation and meeting new people, so I would assume I'm stuck like this.

Well most of my friends and family know that i'm into anime, but I can't really relate or talk about it to anyone really or they just only watch mainstream anime and think that is it to it. Which is kind of annoying talking about the same show. Though I'm moving to North Carolina, so hopefully that will change in the near future. People are so self conscious these days, or at least when it comes to anime, and I say don't be.
Who knows could had someone sitting right next to me in school and was into anime but was self conscious about it.

My friends know that I like and watch anime but they don't watch it themselves so I can't really talk about it with them.
Sometimes my boyfriend will laugh at me when I sit on my computer or tablet and start to laugh or get angry while watching and he'll occasionally ask what's going on but that's all.

To be honest I really like it this way.
I enjoy having this to myself and not having anyone bad-mouth shows or characters I like or having to deal with people who are constantly overanalyzing everything. If I really want to talk about a certain anime I can always find people on the internet to discuss it with.

Sure, several, though mostly online. Still friends, and we're willing to get deep into theories and such without worry.

If you're worried about offending someone with your ideas, just ask first. And be willing to tell them as well if they are offending you, or how much they may have to worry or not. Just saying something is making you uncomfortable doesn't mean you can't talk about anything ever again, after all, and that goes in both directions. Speak up before it becomes a problem.

Also be willing to join in with online watching groups - folks joining in for response vids to latest releases and such. You'll probably find people interested in similar stuff to you that way, and interact in real time, if not in person. Never know where online folks are, some are closer than you might think.

No. To be honest, none of my friend know that I watch anime. It's just never came up, but I seriously doubt any of them do like it. I've heard a few saying, "those Japanese cartoons are nothing but porn." So I don't even bother.

Online, I also don't talk about anime much. It's came up a few times, but it was never a full blown conversation about a specific anime.

Like a user above me said, I rather like it this way. It lets me enjoy something (a guilty pleasure of sorts) without being judged all hardcore by elitist and the like.

Kinda.

I really only tell my close friends and family members that I like anime (or people that just ask). Although my friends and family are more into shounen stuff or whatever gets popular around here in the United States. I do watch some shounen here and there, but I would like a wider genre variety to talk about. It doesn't really bother me tbh.

As for online, I post on the CR forums and some other places. That's about it.

Funnily enough I was just commenting this topic on another post. Although I have a lot of gamer friends its surprisingly hard to come across people that enjoy watching and talking about anime :P

So longs story short although I have friends that would watch an episode or two with me but I don't think they are really THAT into it and would not watch it in their own time. SO long story short, its CR/Forums and Discord for me
