I'd say it depends. I can never seem to keep a guy that long though I know it'f because I'm not fun apparently.
But I would love that my guy knowledge it's something I enjoy and respect it. I've had to many people that dissed me to that any more. I get emotional pretty quick.
I kind of make it clear to my friends and people around me know that I'm into cosplay so should not be a huge shock. then again I have otaku friends.
I can except it he doesn't like it to much for what I might wear but then again I don't think I'd like to torture him with that kind of thing. He should at least acknowledge that I enjoy it.

I don't. Cosplaying is a HUGE part of my life. It's a helluva lot easier if they do it too. So I only date cosplayers.

I married somebody who doesn't like cosplaying. We're both completely fine with having interests the other doesn't share, which I think is awfully important. He listens to me natter on about it sometimes, and obligingly tells me I look cool in the outfit and snaps photos to the best of his ability. I oblige his pet manias in return and everyone is happy. <3
Workin' on:

I love cosplaying wayyyyy too much to be with someone who won't/doesn't like cosplaying. I was lucky; my boyfriend/fiancee I managed to turn onto cosplaying. He's certainly not as nuts as me, but there's no arguing needed if I want him to dress up for a con.

My ex-boyfriend I actually broke up with just on the cusp of an 11th Doctor Who cosplay...the jacket shell is still sitting in my room.
...I ought to finish and wear it someday. It fits me.

ANYWAYS. We broke up for other reasons (basically, it didn't feel like a relationship anymore and just friends with a title) and so now I have a girlfriend.
And she loves cosplaying to death.
Honestly, it was liberating for me to date someone that right from the get-go was like "OHMYGOD THIS SOUNDS AMAZING DRESS ME UP NOW" and was actually willing to learn the sewing bits and whatever else of it. She actually dealt with a very immobilizing costume for her first (Slenderman! <3) and it was LOVELY. Defining moment of that weekend was when she looked at video footage of herself and said "Ohmygod, is that how I looked? I looked amazing!" Made me glow because I helped her make that and she was so phobic of cosplaying before because she didn't want to look bad doing it.

...I'm trying to get her to cosplay Uranus and Neptune with me because I've had a serious desire to pull the blue-haired lady off for a while and she just so happens to be six feet tall and blonde. Not that I'd make her cut her hair or anything, but it means she looks good with blonde hair, something I do not look good with.

Also, I have this tendency to flirt like I'm actually legal at cons with all the cosplayers. I don't usually idolize real people - I idolize fictional characters. So at a convention my head gets all confused and goes "OHMYGOD WESKER IS REAL QUICK GO HIT ON HIM".
Obviously I don't actually -do- anything since I am a) underage and b) taken, but I'd be much more likely to find that sort of a relationship at a convention in the first place. I'm just wired to fall in love with fellow nerds. 8D

That depends.

Are we suppose to obsessively call our significant others, actively destroy their social group and fiercely attack any female within a 5 mile radius of them at all times?

i guess some other problems might come out of it if your girl/boy/it friend doesn't like you cosplaying.

When your at a con, you get attention, they might not like you hugging or so, another guy/girl/it....(crossplayers thats gender is unknown)

They could be the types that just can't get over the fact there girl/guy/it (you never know) is out at a convention hugging and getting close to other people that they don't know.

This however is just another way of looking at "dating someone who doesn't like you cosplaying."

i haven't started dating yet, but i can still give my two cents(or was it one?)

it kinda depends if you mean 'doesn't like cosplay' as in 'i hate that you dress up like that dumb character' or if you mean 'i'm not interested, but it doesn't bother me that you dress up'. i think i'd prefer someone who was interested in cosplaying too, but someone who is indifferent about it would be fine. as long as they don't hate it with a passion, it'd be okay

I was dating a guy for three years and even managed to get him to cosplay with me a couple times but the key word here is 'managed'. He never openly volunteered to cosplay with me and almost always had to mention how 'immature' I was for doing it. That relationship ended and he said it was for other reasons (he never actually told me why he dumped me) but I always got the feeling it was because he thought anime and cosplay was immature or childish.

Long story short. I won't be dating anyone who tells me that cosplay is childish or hates on my D&D group. He doesn't have to cosplay but he has to respect that I love it and not try to change me because of it.
Going to AWA 2011! Who's with me?! PM, tell me about it...

I'm interested in (mainly) male friends in the South Carolina area. I'm cool with girls too. PM if you wanna talk.

Doesn't really matter to me, to be honest, although I love cosplay. My current girlfriend is also a cosplayer, so I guess I'm lucky. None of my ex boyfriends liked cosplay, which I was quite fine with then.

While I consider myself far to young to date right now (only 14.), i can imagine that since Cosplay is pretty big of a thing in my life it'd kinda matter to me whether the person i dated had negative opinions on cosplay or not.

I would not care if they didnt cosplay or if they didnt care for it, but if they were only ever negative about it or just didnt accept it as a hobby or interest of mine, i'd ditch them right there.
They don't need to love it, but a slight apprecition/not bagging it would be... sorta nice.
The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love, and to be loved in return.
