How does this Waifu thing work?

Imagine if you built a shrine to a celebrity, with the centerpiece being a lock of hair her stylist sold to you on eBay for $5,000. It includes the finer, rarer, and more impressive pieces of your collection, one of sprawling merchandise and goods. Imagine that you've not merely seen her productions countless times, but can spout endless trivia regarding those as well as her other public angles. The closest word for this kind of behavior is "fanatic" and it can also be seen in overzealous interest from hobbyists, fans of athletic teams, etc.

That is how the waifu thing worked, at least before. Now? I guess the level has withered to somewhere around "Oh, I like her, I'm gonna go watch some of her old movies." - it falls short of "I made my own musical instrument" or even "I bought a season pass." and lasts less than a month. The one thing fanatics were able to stand by was the sheer passion of their absurd dedication. Dilute that, and you leave them only "absurd."

Well done, normals and casuals, you won that round.
Ever squish your face on a window? Looks funny. Ever got stuck?

First you need to know some ground rules:

1. Need to be a virgin
2. Must have neckbeard

Shut up normal.

Anyway, as the leader of the waifu movement on GameFAQs, I feel like I can shed some light on the subject. A waifu is a 2D companion, your wife pretty much. You should be committed to her. In order to have a waifu, you need to completely disregard 3D, I have done this through conditioning myself to get angry at the thought of 3D.
"Compared to mai waifu she makes you look so ****ty
To me she 3DPD so I just call her miss piggy."

A goddess, a maiden, a woman, and best of all, a UNICORN. Yes.
What else can I ask for?
