Ran's been my waifu for the past 5-6 years, and it's the greatest! New fanart every single day with no sign of slowing. Multiple artist dedicating themselves primarily to the character. Constant flood of new content keeps the flame lit. Pic related, this pic was submitted the other day and it's one of my top favorites. Even I doodle her everyonce in awhile (but only for funny threads on /jp/) It's like the surge of fandom over a bestgirl from an anime of the month, except the popularity is unending, and more merchandise than a single figma/nendoroid.

The point of a waifu is that she doesn't exist, so you can imagine her however you want. It's your choice if you don't want your waifu to love you.

If you have been here for any length of time you would instantly realize that many if not most character threads are made and populated by "waifufags" (as much as I hate using that word) who want to share pictures of their loved ones. I see nothing wrong with it and I am one of them, and I've been in love with Okuu ever since I played her in Hisoutensoku 9 years ago. She's given me a lot of happiness in this otherwise shitty life of mine and I understand why other people would come to love many other 2hus.

I've never called Reimu my waifu, and I likely never will, but if I had to name the one character that has been inside my heart for the longest time, it would definitely be her. I had seen Reimu before I knew what Touhou was, and I instinctively liked her design; I immediately took to her from the first time I played PCB (which was my first 'hu game), and she has consistently topped my sorters at #1 since.

Having a waifu doesn't necessarily mean you'd rather be hooked up to the matrix than experience reality.

I don't have a waifu. Partially because of >>17500521 but also because I've never really obsessed about any character. I have some characters I really like but not any I'm obsessed with.

If you think about it there's no reason for a 2hu to like a sperg.

My sister is getting married next year in the spring. I've agreed to be a groomsman, but I apparently need a date(I don't know much about weddings.)

This is a bad idea. You're literally hiring an actor to be your compensated date for the evening. What will happen when family members ask her questions about how you know each other? Her own life? Are you going to write up an entire backstory for her to memorize to maintain the illusion?
Look, if the wedding isn't until the spring you have two options:
1) Tell the groom you can't make it after all. Make up some excuse about work or uni exams or the like. Do this as soon as possible since if you wait until a month before the wedding to cancel, they will have already spent $25-75 for catering and other accessories just for you and your non-existent date.
2) Wait until a week before the wedding and then tell the groom your date bailed or had to back out. Ask him if he knows someone who could be your date on short notice. Fair warning: you will probably be paired up with the groom's aunt or cousin. It's all a formality and if you really want that meal then tuff it out.

>> No.17505984

Thanks for the advice. Saying yes to anything above just briefly showing up was a huge mistake, but I can't take it back now. Unfortunately my family knows me too well for option 1 to work, so I will have to go with option 2.

I feel you, I have a mental illness that randomly sends me into episodes of body spasms for 2-15 seconds. I'm used to people staring at this point but I doubt any girl would want to date me. I also can't really have kids since my illness is inheritable. I don't want to make anyone live with this.

>> No.17506065

No problem. Another thought: since it's your own family they might give you some leeway. They probably aren't expecting you to find a date so maybe you should just "look" for one for a couple of months and then just straight up tell your sister in November it'll be easier to be paired with someone since you're having no luck. It'll save you more embarrassment.

I'm not that undersirable I like to think. Sometimes I look at myself at the mirror and think "Looking good m8" and next day "Disgusting". I still love myself much more than in my teen ages so I'm steadily improving towards self-love.

Still, what you display as your worth to the rest of the world is important. I don't look that good, my hobbies are boring for most people, and conversations with me are either generic and boring or weird and unappealing.
Studying for a good job so I guess people will look at me differently once I hit 30, my debts are paid off and I get a house.

Still, no waifus for me. Not only out of pity for a 2D fictional girl, but it's also a line I don't wanna cross. I feel it's a slippery slope towards buying dakis and several figures, and otherwise I'm not better than those teenagers on facebook swinging the word for quirky points

I may be just repeating what other said, but it is great. Not only she has bringed new joy into my life, but she also probably saved me by stopping a big depression crysis that could've pushed me to suicide. And I mean it, I was almost to the point of giving up.

Never understood it. I mean, I understand having a waifu, but 2hu characters are all so bland. Maybe I'm missing something because I haven't read the manga, but the average anime character typically has more interesting traits/combinations therof and more (non-fandom-meme-based) personality quirks. And a good eroge heroine blows both of those out of the water. Maybe it's just an issue of saturation and exposure, since new material for 2hus is always coming out, but as much as I vaguely like them, not one of them feels fleshed out enough or has enough impactful emotional moments for me to ever fall in love with them.

Touhou characters have plenty of defining traits. Marisa is sociable and charming, yet studious, honest and hard working. Reimu is transient and a bit blunt, and treats everyone in the same disinterested manner (except Kosuzu because shit writing I guess?). Sakuya is dedicated, haughty, and aloof, and Youmu is immature, loyal and a bit dim. They all have these nuances that, while not directly spelled out, paint a portrait of a colorful and intricate cast of characters. I believe this is why many animefags have such a difficult time grasping the canon 2hus, and why fanon personalities are so common. It's because they're just so used to these copy pasted archetypes, where a character is defined by a few very explicit traits, and often struggles to venture much farther beyond their cliches. It's far easier to digest, but nowhere near as substantial as the well written 2hus.

But that's just my opinion on the matter.
