In regards though - it's only been recently that the the concept waifu has been made entirely clear to me. Maybe this is innate for people who grew up online and in weeb culture as a given. But there are many levels to this concept, the most obvious is simply a "cute girl" or even woman of any sort, since this term gets used loosely by normies
2d or 3d. One layer deeper and the concept of 2d>3d emerges - simply b/c the 3d is an imperfect projection of the 2d ideal, yet I think we can unpack more out of this. Natural 3d beauty is rare and often doesn't last long, w*men fight back against these stacked odds with makeup, using their sexuality to distract cleavage, tank tops, yoga pants, etc
and lastly putting up a false front that they are better than they are as far as SMV, admittedly they play this game more against each other than us, but that doesn't change anything in the context of this argument. In the end most men just want a warm body hole
and a certain amount of status/approval. They aren't in love and those who are will fall out of it withing the first year or so of marriage. At best you have a fuck buddy roomate and life partner with its ups and downs. Things will become stressed when you "chase that spark" of youthful romance and that urge gets sublimated through media, consuming, and drugs/alcohol and if that's not enough there's couples (((therapy)))
and in the end you may just end up divorced if not bitterly cohabitating in separate beds. My point here: the ideal that you chase is a facade that gets you hooked in, but the reality is much more.. well people often find it's not what they signed up for, and this gets handled in different ways.
So, the WAIFU is the facade, or your mind's projection of your female ideal or ANIMUS (I think this came from Jung). It's not the female b/c in truth if you had an average age and average looking natural, unshaved, untweezed, unmade-up female she'd be kind of a sickly, trollish creature that only would be approachable for the most desperately backed up and horny individuals, and even that release would be more of an act like defecation than anything remotely approaching love and nowhere near the idealized experience in any case. So now we get to the last layer
The very essence of what triggers our psychology and physiology as beauty/feminine. This is the core of WAIFU as a concept. The realization I'm trying to convey is that this is the "halo" we apply to our crush, yet that phenomenon is not actually the reality of the "crush", we fall in love with a phastasm or shadow. It's this phantom property, this phenomenon, it's why people can "fall in love" with their chatbots or even with other people who are nothing more than text on a screen thousands of miles away. All of this exists in your own brain. So now you can see what this is leading up to. A robowaifu who fulfills her functions nominally and activates enough arousal triggers in a male, will be preferable to just about ANY human female - assuming no social pressures or fear of being found out or shamed for it for being in some's eyes an "objectiphile"
or even evoking the horror that the need for love is something that can be so easily deconstructed and artificially satiated. (I think this hurdle will go away to a greater extent once we have autonomous mobile robots and an AI which can at least surprise us with a certain degree of unpredictability, so these are key to getting past the "wow a creep with a doll" stigma, I mean you could technically take an autonomous robowaifu out with your friend and if she could walk and hold conversation they might actually like her and find the whole concept amusing and maybe even want their own, right?)
Ok that drained my brain so I'll leave you all with those thoughts for now
