Japan found the perfect solution to overpopulation: make weebs fall in love with fictional characters

Its kind of the point for a lot of the fictional characters to be more attractive than really possible irl, features and personality traits exaggerated or simplified to increase their attractiveness and get/keep eyes on the work.

But emotional and social needs aren't met by how pretty a png is, so people irl are attractive differently for me and the knowledge that the characters aren't real keeps me from ever getting that attached to fictional characters and I don't see that changing. As for vtubers, I just see them as streamers, and while I can still find them and their models attractive I have the 2 braincells needed to avoid an unhealthy parasocial relationship.

I haven't been in love either, though I'm pretty sure that's because of alexithymia (just didn't realize my crushes to ever do anything about it) and social anxiety causing me to keep most people away. I am still attracted to people though, and have realized I'm probably not aromantic and crave that kind of relationship, I just don't feel it as strong as others seem to (probably the alexithymia?).

tl;dr: physically yes, romantically definitely not

For me, anime girls are extremely prettier and have a much better personality, although I'm not romantically attracted to them. For the last 2 years I don't like anyone romantically both from anime and real life.

For the people who answered yes: Go outside and touch some grass, you need it.

As attractive as they are, our 2-dimensional waifus (or husbandos) is, unfortunately, not real.

i mean this in a way where: steven is very cute, but he's not real, so i don't think he's hot, but he's cute, real people are well, real, so they can be hot

People better not be sexualizing Lucario, or any Pokémon for that matter.

In a physical sense, kinda? But as most people have said I think that's kind of the point.

I've never really been emotionally attached to any character from an anime though, and I don't think I ever will.

Fictional characters are made to be attractive, so in an ideal way, yes.
However it is not possible for me to feel attracted to one, because they're not real and I'm more of a practical lad, real people is more for me.

attractive, but not more attractive than a real woman.
I love women
