I hate to say it but I don't feel any presence or connection in my life.
I'm not even in the waifu thing so much though I'm the frenchfag from xm/a/s 2015.
Lain is more like a symbol for me. A cute symbol.
She is the character I found a lot of myself into.
She represents cripling loneliness and desire to create bonds with others. She represents my lack of understandings of social interractions and feelings.
She represents my own attempt to create contact through the net and to work with computers cause computers are pur logic, they won't judge anyone.
She represents an idealised part of myself, as well as an idealised "soulmate".
Lain is cuteness, Lain is wired, and Lain is love.
And pretty autistic, but it creates the charm.
