Really? I think men are complex species laugh

well..... where afraid of commitment but if u girls give us:
-Food
-xxxx n///n
-Minimal nagging

U got us feeding ur selfs from the face of u girls hand palms, 100% guaranteed ^^


Hehe Yup. Let's say some of us girls can't cook, does that change anything? biggrin I also have a weird question but are guys willing to accept a yaoi fangirl as their girlfriend? Just a question that passed through my mind.

As a boy, if my "loving yaoi" girl friend just gives me normal <3 with no bizzare wishes im ok with that ^^ anyway us boys love yuri so lets call it an even ^^ (oh I forgot H stuff.... so yeah we own u girls big time ^^u )


laugh Ah well then that's good. I wouldn't have a problem if my bf liked yuri or hentai.

Lol, but it's a PILLOW. Happy or not that's a huge state of delusional problems there.


I don't think he is delusional, if iam not wrong in psychology being delusional is when one has an erroneous belief that is held in the face of evidence to the contrary, here how can you prove that is love and subsequent mariage is incorrect, on the other hand using popular belief, his love is proven by his marriage and subsequent social reprimand. Whether it is used as an escape route or emotional support loving an inanimate object more than a living being is not delusional but rather socially wrong (in this case) and what society believes in is not always right.

I think maybe this guy just organize the wedding for publicity..Maybe he want some attention..


Maybe but I have my doubts on that.

He called his pillow his girlfriend. I don't know about you, but anyone who calls their pillow their "girlfriend" and thinks of it the same as a real person is in delusion. Either way, he clearly has some mental problems.

Agreed. Even if he is an otaku, there is a limit to what he can do. I guess that's what makes him a "hardcore" otaku now. I don't know~

Are you sure he "thinks" of it as a real person? If not, perhaps you are confusing "treating" it like a real person with "believing" it is. To give an example, think of how people can treat other people's children like their own biological child (while not believing that the other person's child is actually their biological offspring). I wouldn't necessarily call pretending that your stuffed animal is your best friend, and then do things with it like if it was your best friend to be delusional, either.

To be delusional, he would have to persist in a "belief" even when it is proven to him to be false or impossible to falsify (An impossible to falsify belief would be something like a belief in the invisible pink unicorn). Another important aspect is that it causes a strong emotional response, and that he's over-sensitive about anything contradicting the belief.

Unless you know for sure that the Korean man indeed believes that the pillow-case is a real human being, and remains steadfast in this belief even when you point out that it is not a real human being, I think it would be more fair to opt that he's merely exhibiting a coping mechanism for an imaginative, lonely person who wants to express an extreme fondness for a fictional character who happens to be imprinted on a sheet of polyester or cotton (and knows that it is indeed a fictional character imprinted on a sheet of polyester or cotton that he's lugging around if you actually confront him about it).

... Yes, it's pretty sad.
I don't know that hardcore otaku(s) can go to that extreme --- to the point of marrying a pillow/DS character.

none
wow.
I do play DS games but I don't think I will go to the extend of marrying them... =_=

Geez...can you get any more indepth with the whole psychological outlook into him and his beliefs. Seriously, it almost sounds like you're trying to defend the guy or something. You registered just to post a remark to a comment I made? >_>

Anyway, my two cent is personally I couldn't give a rat's ass whether they guy is trying to cope with loneliness or not, what he's doing is pretty damn sad. And if you look at the other pictures of him with his "waifu" that are on Sankaku, he sure as hell doesn't look like he's lonely. Not one bit.

Sorry people, but can I ask You something? What's wrong with getting merried with pillow? Wow it's funny. You people make him look bad, pity him or whatsover, it won't change anything. If you've got time to complain, then use your time to change him smile
Well maybe he has divorced and merried a gurl already, maybe even a hot one biggrin
But, no one's interested right? Lol, of course, media just write about these morons, whatever those morons change to good or not, media don't give a shiet anymore =/ .Isn't that right?

Ok, give me a metal bat and a ticket to Korea.

@all the people "defending" the otakuretard: this is not about happiness nor sadness nor "freedom of choice", its about mental illness. This cant be cured by a psychologist but a psychiatrist: learn the difference.

The issue is not "well if he is happy let him be": no-one-should-be-happy-MARRYING-an-object, i hope its clear. Being a hardcore supporter for something is fine (preference), marrying an Inanimated (lol counts as an error to my win7englishcorrector, rofl!) thing is just NOT SANE.

Do you talk to things? No. Is it "freedom of thought" to talk to things? When you encounter someone talking to THINGS do you think "oh well what a happy go lucky attitude, god bless him" or "omgawd stay away from me you freak"?

Its not that here we give freebies to the ones that display the most of "freedom for all" attitude heh, its not a race to who's first among "freedom defenders", i'll have you know it.

Change him? I see, i am glad that you've taken an action smile . But can you tell us, or tell me at least, what exactly you're going to do with the bat please? I am just curious you know.

Hum, lets think about it as a tool to make him "soft": thus as in your signature he'll be able to overcome all the hardships of the world.
