Does Being in Fandom Affect Your Relationships?

From friends to girlfriends to husbands, we all have people in our lives outside of our fandom of choice.

With these things that we love taking up so much of our time, how does being involved in fandom affect how you interact with others?

Maybe your boyfriend doesn't like your HUGE crush on that Kpop idol, or your wife doesn't get why you are "obsessed" with that "anime chick."

Maybe your friends make fun of you for being WAAAAAY into that one TV show...

Do you think fandom affects your relationships? How?

Does it make it harder or do you find out who your REAL friends are?

Hell yes my standards have gone up so high...I'm Jk I'm still cool with anybody as long add they treat me right
I probably be single for a while but anyone needs to just accept my Korean loving self if they cant tough on them πŸ˜‰βœŒ
So, there were some people who I was acquainted with whom I discovered were actually closet fans. They certainly do not look like people who play the Pokemon card game or watch copious amounts of anime and draw manga. But looks can be deceiving! By chance we discovered each other, and now we have scheduled anime days and Friday night Pokemon card game tournaments. So for me, being in a fandom has been sociable. My family finds it interesting that I watch Asian dramas (K-Drama, J-Drama, C-Drama, all great), and have even picked up a few Korean words. I know my family doesn't particularly care for K-Pop, so I don't play it when they are around (I don't really care for my brothers love of 70s and 80s Rock, but it is starting to grow on me, teehee). There are some friends who do not have the same preference of television and music as I do, but there are plenty of other subjects that we can be interested in. Being in a fandom has not really effected me in my relationships. Perhaps it is because I know which of my friends like what things and we just talk about that instead. 😊
haha...what relationship? I'm alone
my husband and friends just see it as another of my crazy obsessions. being a scifi geek too they are used to it.

Everyone Deserves A Second Chance In Love. I Got Mine With The Help Of An Indian Astrologer
Is he the right one? Get clarity with the Indian astrologer right here. When it comes to love, I have always been unlucky. From being asked out on a date or even getting to be the guy I love, I have never got the chance to enjoy this feeling of love. The sad part is that I gave my heart and soul in every relationship I have been in, but it seemed like it wasn't enough. Looking at my bad luck in love, my friends suggested that I speak to an Indian astrologer in UK. But me being me, I didn't believe in astrology and stuff. So, I just kept trying and finally got a date with my crush. From a single date, it went on to many dates, and we finally started dating. I was super excited and pumped up. It felt like I found the love of my life. Everything seemed rosy, and I decided to be the best version of myself. I never restricted my partner or doubted him regarding anything, and he was pretty happy about it. We decided to move in together, and it was like a dream come true. I started to flaunt in front of everyone. I told my besties that I could do it and finally have what I wanted, but they seemed to have something to share with me. The hesitation in their happiness signaled something, but I thought it was jealousy and ignored it. It had been the best three months of my life. Life seemed to bless me with some great things. Who knew this castle would eventually fall. My best friend once visited me and asked me to go on a walk with her. When we left and walked a few miles, she told me that the man I was dating was already married. I snapped at her on hearing this. She asked me to notice that he is not home most of the time, and there has been no weekend where he has stayed with you. When she told me this, everything that I ignored all this time came right in front of me. I decided to confront him the same evening. On doing so, he got agitated and started to scream. He went to the extent that he raised his hand at me. I was taken aback and just froze there. He left the house, and I was left picking broken pieces of my heart. Days passed, and I locked myself up and decided to give up on life. I kept questioning myself that where did I go wrong. My friends were there and came to console and proposed speaking to the best astrologer in UK. Finally, heartbroken, I decided to give it a shot. I downloaded the Astroyogi app and spoke to the astrologer. The moment I started to talk, I broke down and couldn't stop crying. But somehow, I felt good. It felt light. He created my birth chart and began telling me about my life. He said that it is because of the unfavorable planets I have been facing such hardships in love. I always end up loving the wrong people. He also told me that I need to trust my destiny and wait for the right one to enter my life. He asked me to be more vigilant and careful before going into any relationship. I should analyze every aspect and tell myself I deserve the best. It made me feel better, and I took a break for some time. I decided to listen to my instinct and stay positive. Speak to the top astrologers anywhere, anytime. Call Now. Finally, after six months, I met Roger. This time I was careful and decided to go slow. Things were going great, but I also was careful not to give myself away totally until I was sure of him. I again consulted the astrologer in London to get clarity and guidance regarding this relationship. Even though I was not ready to give love a second chance, he gave me a heads-up that this would be worth it. It's been a year with Roger now, and we are planning to get married next month. Preparation is in full swing, and I am grateful to the Astroyogi app for helping me find the best astrologer in UK who helped me get a second chance in love. Source

If BTS Were in Boys Over Flowers
Now, I think there are a lot of things wrong with the plot of BoF (mainly the boys treat Jan-di like crap) but its still funto imagine it as a less problematic drama. Here's who I'd cast! Gu Jun Pyo - Suga The leader of the F4 and heir to the Shinhwa Group, one of the biggest companies in South Korea. He is hot-tempered and believes that there is nothing that money can't buy. Though he's unable to express his feelings, deep down, he has a heart of gold. He torments Jan-di after she stands up to his bullying ways, but ends up falling in love with her and will do anything to protect her. Yoon Ji Hoo - V A member of the F4 and the grandson of a former president of Korea. He has a driving phobia after being involved in a car accident that killed his parents and left him the only survivor. He is initially in love with his childhood friend Seo-hyun, who helped him overcome his social anxiety. Calm and gentle, his musical talent catches Jan-di's attention and she begins to develop feelings for him. So Yi Jung - Jungkook A member of the F4 and a skilled potter. His family owns the country's biggest art museum. After losing his first love to his brother, he becomes a Casanova. He eventually changes his playboy ways when he realizes that he likes Ga-eul. Song Woo Bin A member of the F4, his family runs the country's largest construction company, which Woo-bin later admits has strong connections to organized crime. However, he has excellent business sense and is very charismatic. He's a super nice guy that happens to be a gangster lol and of course RM, Jin, and Jimin are the dad, mom, and little brother :) How would you cast BOF?
