Yeah, it's not looking too good. It doesn't help that the internet out here really draws wind.

Friends! Add me! I'm going to the Meet and greet, but I don't know all the panels or anything at this con, and I bet some of you do!

OMG, if there's a gaming room, I'll be there like 50% of the time, lol.

If they have Rock Band or Guitar hero, you'll probably see me on that shredding on the *fake* guitar on expert, although, admittedly, I'm a bit rusty since I haven't played in about half a year.

Or you might see me playing board/card games. Can't wait to crush noobs in how to settle catan.

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.

I don't think this is the case.

I actually think there are lots of women who love anime who would love to meet their special someone at a con.

Here is where the problem lies. I would say that almost all girls at the anime convention actually like anime and are there for that sake and for the social gathering, but because the cons are soo big there are now lots of douche bags who show up at the con because they have heard their are hot girls in scantily clad outfits and they just want to hit on chicks.

They don't add to the con, they don't cosplay, they don't go to panels. They just get wasted and try to get other girls wasted. They essentially are treating the con like a trip to the club. Sadly, it can ruin the event for everyone and also distracts from an environment where you should feel comfortable being oddly dressed in your favorite cosplay or rambling on about who you Ship.

I am sad to say that after years of con going I am only seeing it get worse. I truly think that the easiest way to stop this would be to make it where a "weekend pass" gets you into the "rave", but a 1 day pass does not and 1 day pass people have to pay an additional fee to get into the "Rave". I grew up with tripp pants, and I love cool new LED crap, so I have nothing against the "costumes" for the dances, but sadly shirtless dudes in fishnet and girls in spanks and nothing else, although are perfectly fine, they also attract a certain type of people to the con. I don't want to restrict peoples fashion, I just think we should just find ways to make it less comfortable to show up as a group of guys looking to get drunk and score.

It's a hard thing to deal with. Also, I would say in general more guys actively pursue women than vis versa.

So, judging by the previous post AND rolling all the way back to the first thread, this was originally a thread where single folks could meet one another who's relationship status was single? I thought this thread was for "singles" as in people without groups looking for groups to chill with. I suppose that makes me quite daft.

Also, DUDE Sephiroth Lives! You're from Baltimore? That's awesome.

I believe the original intent was for singles to meet other singles, like match.com, except not really.
I don't have a group to hang out with, so I'm going to the meet and greet. The thread for that is here:

I agree. My last convention was Anime Iowa, and I was with a few people who were like that, and met more obnoxious drunk people who would yell out the window, or do other generally annoying things. I was hoping that it got better in the 2 year absence that I haven't gone to a convention.

I agree 100%. WAY Before I was staff, I was waiting in line to get to into the "Rave" there were +21 going up and down the line asking people if they wanted to sell their tickets to get into the "Rave" I think they want in is because of the huge amount of people in the area and think its the place to be. I doubt they cared that it was an anime convention.

The fact that it costs money to get into the conventions is a good way to both curb less interested people from getting in AND insure that like-minded folks are able to meet and share interest. That said, this type of scenario might be a little better for meeting someone you may grow to become close friends with as opposed to your average bar or hang out spot. It's too bad people will still try to sneak in. I wonder what the stats for that are like....

I'm also going to the meet and greet, but I'm assuming people from here will be going there as well. Well, at least some of the people.
