Just curious. But to all the ACEN congoers, I wanna know did you meet you first love there? Are you still dating, friends or even married? It just sounds so romantic. I met my BF at college when I was a sophmore btw. :heart:

Kinda. I met my current girlfriend at the first (and only) open forum meeting. We've been dating for 2 years as of March 1st.

Well, my friends know this story.

My first year at ACen, I was staying with a group of people from another message board. This other girl came in. She was ****ing wierd first of all. And really not that attractive. But after talking to her alot I sort of got this huge crush on her. Probably because she and I agreed on alot of things, and she was so strange.

Of course, in the cliche sitcom fashion, she wasn't my type. My type is usually heterosexual....

Of course, i still talk to her alot. She lives in California and will not be making it this year.

I know. I really am getting better with everything, though at times I still get that loathing feeling when I think about it. That experience unfortunately made me rather pessimistic when it comes to my ability to have a serious relationship. But the good thing is that I'm not a man-hater like some people would have turned out as ^.^;

w00t, that's right, Aqua! Forget that dude! Besides, Ian and Newski still owe him that butt kicking. You're a cool chick, you'll find someone great who deserves you.

As for me, I met my first love senior year of high school. Let's not get into how that went, but some people here know. My 2nd and current love I met at Columbia College Game Club through some friends here on the forums, but we did hang out at ACen together before hooking up. Hm...so basically, I have these forums to thank for my awesome boyfriend. Yay! ^_^

*cackle* I know what it's like to have that effect on people. Although usually just normal people think I'm freakin' weird, so maybe I'm just half as weird around people at cons :D

I met a really sweet girl at ACen last year.

We had a delightful "summer fling." It was great, and we're still friends.

It's nice when it works out that way!

Love is an over rated subject and more so then not, a very worthy emotion of disqualification.

Its funny to know that anger and love share so much in common. Both lead to irrational decisions and a general lack of self control.

Lust is much more fun.

"There's a blankness in your eyes...and yet all I see is beauty."
"All the problems make me want to go, like a bad girl straight to video."
One should judge a man mainly from his depravities. Virtues can be faked. Depravities are real.

This year I just want to make a truck-load of otaku friends! I'm not really into the whole dating scene. I figure that's what college is for! O_o At least, that's what my school tries to make us believe. Anyway, I wish the best of luck to any future otaples! ~:heart:

I did happen to meet this girl (not gonna say any names) last year... but I didn't get to see her much... she was so beautiful, and I wanted to see her again. I only talked to her about 3 times, but most of it was when we were waiting in line for registration. I really wish I could see her again this year, it would be great.

You got a problem with my vocabulary now? Damn, dude you're breaking my heart.

If you can't accept me for who I am, then go f*** yourself, OK?

Besides, unless you've had the experiences I'm discussing, you have no grounds to criticize my choice of words in describing them.

I said it was delightful, it was f*cking delightful, OK? You want to take it outside, I'll kick your delightful butt down the damn sidewalk.

Yeah, right?

If you happen to meet someone you like who also likes you, that's great. But going out somewhere with the ambition of "scoring," getting laid, or "falling in love" is kind of idiotic and pathetic.

If you're that needy, believe me it'll be obvious to everyone you meet.

See, me and my bro joke about going to get laid, but the truth is, we don't care.

We went to get our friend Joe laid.

That's what ACen is all about. Getting the nice but socially awkwards friends laid.
