Hello, /adv/, f/19 have always fantasised about 2d men, but now all i can think of is my 3d failed crush.
How do I switch back to 2d?
2 years have passed, I feel like a retard
well, rationally speaking, that's because (unfortunately) there's no real attachment to anime husbandos to be had. actual emotional fulfillment is a two-way street; it requires active interaction. and until the advent of genuine artificial intelligence comes, 2D can't do that for us. it's lame, but that's just the way it is.
i can't offer you too much advice (i'm in an... awkwardly similar situation to you, i've been unable to get over a crush from a couple years ago too) but i definitely don't think the answer relies in reverting back to a 2d world. more likely, it's out in the real world, on a 3 dimensional plane, waiting for people like us to go find it.
caring about real people instead of fictional characters is part of growing up, you won't go back to crushing on 2d men really
your crush on that guy will fade in a couple years assuming you dont stay around him, or when you get a new one
Thank you both, i guess i have to throw away all my dakemakuras after all.
So how long will it take?
Unfortunately, that crush was the first real friend I had, the first romantic interest and the first person who had a crush on me.
I have dreams about him, some are lucid, at least once in two months.
a couple years on top of the 2 you already went through, again assuming you dont have another crush pop up. around 5 years total at which point you'll start to forget his face and he'll stop being in your dreams.
i don't know -- again, i'm in the same boat you are. the further you describe it, the more i relate to it -- it's actually kind of unsettling lmao
she was my best friend, the only person i ever felt i could really relate to. i still haven't moved on.
however, we both will eventually.
time has a way of making everything alright.
It's obvious, I don't really love the crush now (plus he must've be really annoyed by me). His character took the place in my fantasy pantheon, and nothing can move him from there.
It's almost some yandere shit.
Even if we both get older and see this less serously? We never even kissed and I must've fallen in a "weird acting friends" category. Is it wrong to at least talk about the weather with such a person?

And after a few more years you lose interest in human beings both 2d and 3d entirely except for as sexual objects or for money/convenience
