@blackcat18: You should try to see if you can get a speed dating event arranged for next year. I think more people would be interested in that rather than just rather meeting up, plus you'll have a much better & even ratio.


There's atleast one this year, and ratio still is a problem from what i understand.

I might come and watch in a corner if this does happen....and laugh if it's 20 guys and one girl. I might help you out if you are that one girl X3


@Xeno: I thought they were not going to do that due to lack of interest?! O_O

While the comments on the 10:1 male to female ratio are not productive to helping this idea, it is also typically why this has never worked out at a con before. Its been tried numerous times around numerous conventions run by the convention and fans both, but typically this is the issue. Its because there are far more guys who actively search for a girlfriend at con than women. Though there are typically more women at con overall. Most females have more of an attitude of if it happens, it happens. Also, they typically have the fear of being the only female there with the reputation that these things get.

Best of luck to you if you do continue your organization of it. Just letting you know the issues you are going to run into. If you had a base group of 5-10 females interested, it would do wonders for the initial planning.


If it happens it happens. I'm single about a month now after two years. Not in a total rush for anything, but would be nice. ^^;

A little late to this but yeah, Geek Love was an awesome show. I only watched the first episode but it was very good. Kind of disappointing it's already cancelled though. :(

If I start counting the years that things started going downhill from my last relationship, it'd be nine.

No one wants to tolerate my personality or could give me what I need. I accepted that nearly four years in. Only recently I wanted to date again but I high doubt anything will work out.

I mean there is this one girl and she makes me smile unlike any other but I bet she'll get tired of me sooner or later. I hope she won't but that's how it always turns out. I've been single by choice though. As cliché as it may be, one of the reasons is because I do not want to get hurt again. The main reason is because I'm doing everyone else a favor by not being in their life.

Ouch, well, hopefully she'll stick by you. For me, I've been looking, just haven't found anyone that could understand me enough for things to work. XD

I'm sorry to hear. I always tell everyone that it's not hard to please people, they're just picky. I only started looking last year October and every time I started talking with someone things always went sour. It's funny because this time she's the one that said anything to me first which rarely ever happens.

If she's the one who said things first, I'd say the odds are in your favor. :3

Could be worse. A majority of the girls here are all interested in stereotypes, leaning towards the rapping community, and all of them are more for flings than committed relationships of any kind.

yea, i've ran into white girls doing that too.they are on par with ditzy girls imo on level of annoying. While i'm not saying flings are wrong, I am implying that they aren't anything i really care about.

Flings aren't really my style in particular. I'd rather have a meaningful relationship, than a one night stand. They're much more fulfilling than doing something for one night with a stranger.
