Otaku Popular: “They Can Only Cheat With 2D Girls!”


Otaku have consistently been amongst the least popular men for Japanese women, but at least a few have kind words for them, praising their “conscientious” nature and inability to cheat on all but 2D girls…

According to some of the girls dating them, otaku boyfriends are honest, faithful and gentlemanly – more so than men at large, at least.

Most of all, they are said to be unlikely to be unfaithful, unless of course 2D girls are included in the equation.

One otaku girlfriend explains:

“Who cares about 2D? If it’s not a real human, it’s fine – I’d actually be grateful for him cheating with a girl in a game like that…”

Dubious praise indeed… Of course, not all such partners are so forgiving of 2D girls competing for their affections.

    Its rather odd that 2D affairs can be considered by some Japanese women as real affairs. Still dubious praise is better than none at all.
    Many of the comments below that article are quite negative though so be warned. This is my favourite: "オタク逃げてぇええええええ!" "Otaku, run awaaaaaay!" Probably not a good idea brag about being an otaku and expect Japanese women to flock to you.
    Which women were interviewed for this I wonder? And what are their names, mail addresses and are they hot?

    I'm a woman. I'm a hardcore fujoshi and my favourite eroge is Rapelay. If I ever get a boyfriend who likes anime, we'll play eroges together.

    Ah the irony...
    Yeah, as an otaku, I would treat my girlfriend in the kind of romantic way that's lifted from fairytales, be devoted, never cheat, give her my all, etc.

    But in return, she would have to deserve it and not be scheming, conniving, trying to trade up to another guy, materialistic, and so on.

    To sum it up... I'm single, lol

    You seem like a nice guy, I think you only need to go out there and meet a ton of girls. Only by knowing them (and them knowing you) you'll find a nice girl.

    Of course if you always go for the too pretty/slutty ones they most probably aren't great to have around (high maintenance too) in the long term.

    The girl who doesn't mind her boyfriend checking out 2D girls must be thinking that as long as he sates his sexual needs on the 2D girls, she can just take his money, look pretty on his arm at conventions, restaurants, and in front of their friends & family, and call it a day. She gets the desired benefit of having a man without having the screw him as he only faps to 2D

    Yes, but he could be right in some cases. Majority of the female population despise otaku so it is very unlikely for such case to occur although it is also possible for such relationships to be successful.

    I'll just simply say...

    What if girls (Female Otaku to be specific) were to cheat on their rl boyfriends and go for the 2d?
    If that were to happen, as a man, it won't affect me much, right?; therefore i'll simply say, "go for it if it makes you happy"
    So it would be the same for those girls dating the otaku boyfriends
    Or at least it should be...

    You gotta take for a fact that, not all girls are the same. It's true that most girls would say "I want a nice guy", but not all girls want a dominant man.
    The preferences of women can be quite difficult at times...

    I say balls to that. They're all like that, even if they don't seem that way. And if they aren't, they're the type hunting for a submissive man they can keep under their thumb.

    Sometimes I wish I'd been born gay.

    well when i said women don't know what they want it seems i was right,thus there are many sad women these days that feel lonely,empty these days,especialy single women,the problem is when they become angry and go feminist.

    Anyway my cousin said to me(not gonna say all other things just this one).
    He had a women that was like that.It wasn't good when he was away from here at work and not good when he was with her.Conclusion,she doesn't know what she wants and expects you to solve the problem,fill that emptyness of her.
    This is where he should come to here and bring authorithy over here and then do something together what ever they will do,but he needs to tell her they will do that.

    Oh well wanted to keep it short.

    well anon i will agree with you.Shure they want a dominant man,but it's more like a man with a functional authorithy.
    It goes like this,the man has authority over his women,the women must submit to his authorithy for the relationship to work,but he needs to bring order,principles,authorithy into her life and needs to fullfill her needs and his needs,but mans needs are top priority,she also has to fullfil his needs.But when authorithy endageres her life it is a wrong authorithy and the women should not follow it.
    Since there are too many things to write,i rather preffer you to go to this site,read the ebook check the forums:

    Girls say there are no real men left anymore,but actualy it's lack of manhood in a man.
    And then women get these nice guys,pussified manginas and get bored of them and cheat on them,why do you think most women cheat these days.
    But let me just say how many people like that i have seen,even with my mom and her so called friends.

    We can blame women and feminist for changing men,men
    who weren't raised with manhood and men being ignorant about their lifes.

    I am a part of that pussified mangina,but now i am trying to change myself since i read most of the ebook,checked the forums.I will say even women who read the book agree with the ebook.

    "According to some of the girls dating them, otaku boyfriends are honest, faithful and gentlemanly – more so than men at large, at least."

    I am assuming that's what happens when you have one social connection(let alone a gf) all the good qualities that would be unevenly distributed among several/many friends are shown to just one person.

    However the opposite should be true of showing said person all your bad qualities that would otherwise be divvied up.

    That's an ironically broad yet parochial generalization. The result of how much, or how little, self-esteem one has depends on what that person sees to be his or her own self-image or aspirations thereof. A man with high self-esteem who does not see any worthwhile value in an exclusive relationship will likely be quite the moonlighting playboy. A man with high self-esteem who prides himself in being loyal and reliable would make a devoted significant other. The respective results are usually inverted for people with low self-esteem.
