I know soooooooooo many girls who are interested in video games and anime, actually one of them totally just ditched me to go do that. Sometimes depending on where you are and your age those interests vary but honestly I kind of like thinking of it like this:
Even if 99% of the world isn’t interested in you, in that one percent, it’s like 77 million people who will. That’s crazy and so cool. I don’t know how else to phrase the first part better, sorry but I still think it’s a cool demographic.
So many girls are interested in those things, it kind of shocks me. My friend who’s interested in those things met a lot of people with those same interests of all ages on apps like discord (there’s more but that’s the only one I’m actually familiar with and use).
I get you think you have to put yourself out there but honestly, we’re all quarantined, although it’s nice to have someone to talk to, I don’t really see how having a girlfriend would change a whole lot at this moment. I really honestly think giving those apps a break and maybe trying to connect with people online as far as in video game forums and such and make friends you can communicate with would be such a better idea. There’s other ways to put yourself out there besides dating apps. My parents met through a chat room thing like 25 years ago, no for dating - actually what they would talk about all the time is how done with dating and how boys/girls were just irrelevant to them... they now have two kids together.
If you’re interested in anime and video games, get something like discord and find a server that talks about those things. I’ve met tons of people doing that.
This has some options for gaming tags: https://top.gg/servers/tag/gaming
Really though, look up “discord servers for [whatever thing]” and a ton will pop up.
I hope you’ll take that into consideration, I really don’t know how much more I can throw into this thread. Maybe some others can still help you out, but I’m not sure what else to say.
