Meeting Friends and Girls with same interests!

Recommended Posts

So i'm a very busy person, i don't get to meet a lot of new people and the ones i do  are not my type because its usually at clubs and drinking with friends and  other High School kids

Even tho i have an active and a social life style i still want to use some of my free time doing lazy fun stuff   :P like watching Netflix, some anime , gaming , basiclly spending time online .

The thing is that i spend most of my time w people that are active like me so every day i have school, training, a bit of guitar practice and then on work days i have an hour or 2 of free PC time, in that time i have been struggling to make online friends which i used to find it easier to talk with then real life friends. Also  i am kinda sad because the perfect cute nerdy girl i want is  not gonna be outside for me to meet her . But rather inside watching anime and gaming :(

Not sure if this is an introduction type thread you made.. but hey welcome to the forum I hope you enjoy your stay here. That's good you have an active life outside the internet though. True, sometimes finding people who have stuff in common with you can be tricky but there a few people still out there just got to keep looking. But being online can be fun as well and some prefer it more than in real life things or people. Online friends are also nice to have but having people in person is a bit better since you can actually see them on a daily bases but nothing wrong with having online and in person friends too.  There is someone out there for everyone since the world is made for people to find  each other. So you never know you might meet someone down the line, just never stop being yourself and maybe you'll find them or them find you.

It's alright. Yeah some places are like that where people don't really get the whole anime thing or spending time on the PC a lot. I think that's anywhere really. No I would be just yourself and do what you like or love to do and don't care what others think of you, if they are a true friend they would accept you for you. Just my opinion. And true some girls could take that the wrong way but you never know.

Hello, welcome to the forums! 

I'm Mallow or Soulless, whichever you prefer ^^ That's nice that you like to spend your time doing things other than watching anime or playing video games (Speaking of which, what are your favorite animes/manga/video games?). Ooo~ You play an instrument? I do as well! I'm a violist and pianist :) Hope we can make music jokes some time :D

Anyway, feel free to message me or anyone else at anytime if you need help or just wanna talk. Everyone here is very friendly, so don't be shy ^^ I actually have a friend who just joined as well, so you're not alone! Hope to catch you later, and I hope you enjoy your stay~ Baiiiiiii~~

Howdy, I'd like to note that my situation is similar to yours, I spend a lot of time alone because of the fact that the people I have around aren't close to being my type at all, and I'm hoping to make acquaintances here just as you do.

Really?  I would think that would be a really fast method of weeding out the ones you aren't looking for.  Truth be told, as a girl who talks about anime and gaming, I have found that the people who look down on gaming oftentimes are not worth my time (they tend to be very self-absorbed people in my experience. If you are looking down on a gamer, what makes you think yourself so much better, after all?).  Hmmm...not really sure what kind of high school you're in to be honest.  When I was in high school, you weren't popular unless you were smart and being "geeky" was not considered a disadvantage to your character.  If anything, it added to your character.  My high school class had big plans, that being said haha ^_^

Internet social life is where its at in my opinion, I have no intention of making friends outside of online.

If you want to meet other nerds and the like you should just tell your real life friends to leave you alone more so you can have more time online. Its not hard to find fellow nerds, geeks and anime/video game fans online, they are everywhere.

This is ridiculous, if you meet a girl and you feel ashamed of gaming and don't tell her how does that make anything better? Don't you plan to keep gaming? Yes, I assume you do and if she cant accept that then I say she is not worth the time.

Gaming is an honorable past-time in my opinion, there is a lot that goes into it as I continue to learn as I study all the frame data of over 50+ character's in Tekken, its time consuming and requires a lot of skill as well as smarts. People who don't realise this are ridiculous, they look down on gamers as being losers although they must have hobbies as well, I mean seriously, how is reading a book or knitting better than playing a video-game? Its not but people will try to say it is with really no proof that it is, its just that they have a stereo-type against gamers.

Be proud of being a nerd and don't feel ashamed to tell a girl you like that you are one, that's how I think.

@SAO LILDOOP True, now a days online is where most people are who are into geeky / nerdy things such as anime, movies, video games, and etc.. But there are still people out there in real life who also share the same passions as you do and everyone here. It maybe just be hard to find people if your friends with them and  can still respect you if  your into one of those things if there a true friend they will. Friends don't always have to like what you do but still listen to you about it and support you. I had people like that in my life and yeah it does suck a bit that they don't get it or want to get into it or thinks it lame. But still there are others out there in real life who do get it and are into the same things as you. I just wouldn't give up is all. Everywhere around the world is different but I know people still exists who are into stuff like anime as people on here are. I myself are and introvert and also very shy and suffer from social anxiety as well. So I find more comfort online making friends. But does not mean I would like some in person I just don't right now have none. 

I also think since technology is much more advance than back in the day and still growing as well the internet that people tend more to be online, social media, and so on.. So it's like a new kind of fad or something like that can't find the right word for it, my bad ^^;; But none the less online for people is more comfortable, for some. But still I would try and get outside more in real life and meet people. Don't have to be friends with them just talk to people and if your shy or have a hard time with it take baby steps. The world is meant for people to find each other. Some prefer online more than in real life which I see no harm in. But still would try in person as well.

( just answering in general )

Now for meeting girls I know there are girls out there who will respect you if you game, like anime and whatever else your into. Some might be into it more and some might not. My mother does not care too much for my step father gaming but she still respects it and tires to listen and be there supporting him even though she don't get it much or care for it really. So each girl is different if you want to meet someone but you never know. Like I said the world is meant for people to find each other you never know someone could find you. Wouldn't give up hope though.

      My family is more accepting then they would be if it weren't for my oldest brother getting me into DBZ at such a young age. My dad was also stationed in Korea looooong ago (like the late 80s I think) and read manga while there, but outside of my household its almost completely taboo.  I avoid talking about anime while visiting grandparents and others. I am the only otaku in my family and I am OK with that.

      My favorite anime is Fruits Basket. I can always pick it up and watch it. Especially during winter and spring.

      I grew up watching DBZ with my oldest brother and since then have grown the amount of anime I have watched. Also, my favorite anime is Fruits Basket.
