Um no. The crystal ball is a dance.

If you look on the final programming schedule, there is a speed dating panel "Speed Dating 2 Electric Boogaloo! 18+" on Saturday @2:00 --- Narita A-B (Hyatt)


Ah, okay. I know the Crystal Ball is a dance, but when I was first researching this convention and things to do it said that there would be a speed dating event shortly before the ball to help out people without dates.

EDIT:
Aaaaaaaand that would be the one judging by the timing.

I suppose the only way to make those things work is if you make them somewhat private and limit the number of people who can participate.

Sounds like a highly unorganized panel.
There's no reason it let more men than women to participate. (assuming it's a hetero session)

There were a good handful of women in there, but, there were a lot more men. It was pretty disorganized; they decided to make it an 18+ event, but didn't state it in advance, so everyone had to rush out of that line and grab wristbands. Most of those I talked to weren't really interested, except the ones twice my age who just happened to be there... still shivering from the memories of that.

That sounds like a nightmare. I know people wouldn't like it, but it's gotta be a first-come, first-serve thing with events like that. Not gonna make it less creepy, though.

Getting courage or over one's nerves is the challenge. I get nervous meeting people at first then I get comfortable once I get a good vibe.

I wouldn't call a voluntary program "forced," but I get what you're saying. It's not a matter of being more attractive to someone, though. Some people want to find someone, but have difficulty simply approaching someone. Speed dating, online matchmaking, and blind dates help in this area. You're right, though, if you're too scared to commit to begin with then it's not going to work out.

Yeah, there's not substitute for just simply talking to people. It makes things a lot less awkward. XD

This is me being the awkward anti-social person I've become, but after reaching out and continually trying to strike up conversations with the fairer sex, I've grown tired of having to constantly initiate conversations, activities or other social motions. I mean, I'm very outgoing if you know me, but I get tired of having to say "Hi!" or "How are you today?" FIRST all the goddamn time. I would like some love in return, but alas, this seems not to be the case with me.

*shrug* I'm going to the meet and greet, so perhaps I can make some new friends this year.

-hits the LIKE button- I feel the same way. With a group of strangers I have to start the conversations since I hate silence, to me it feels like something bad is going to happen. :unsure: Whenever I talked to a person I knew, I always had to keep the conversation going and it took its toll on me since I got irritated that they didn't want to chat like a normal person.

Reciprocation is key to communication. If both parties don't step forward and attempt to get something going then someone is going to get peeved. Sometimes talking to certain people can make things MORE awkward--or it can seem that way if there's only one side to the conversation.

The good thing about conventions, though, is that you know most everyone there is there because they're into something related to something you might like. It's not like just going into a random bar and trying to talk to someone sitting at a table hoping that they like the same things you do. Hopefully that will take a little bite out of the awkwardness.

I'll be hosting a 24/7 (maybe literally) rager the whole weekend (Thurs-Sunday morning) in a suite.
You can treat it as a mixer, I suppose.
I'll also bring a PS3 and supply as many fighting games as possible.

I know where your coming from, I just make the attempt because something inside tells me things like; something epic will happen, or what's the worst that could happen she rejects you, that leaves you in the same place that you currently are in. :)

valid point, but I think in the here and now and the rest will come after I have decided the lemon is worth the squeeze, I am really picky when it comes to personality so if someone does not make the cut I will end it before going to far deep. I have studied 8 years in psyche reading and have studied people for longer. I have a good enough idea of what I am doing. I do not believe in molding my personality to become perfect for other people, but I do believe that knowing someone before dating is crucial to understanding how to make a relationship stand. If you want to patronize me on quotes then you may need to do some studying into the subjects I am well versed in before you view my word as being nothing more than sympathetic. Sympathy is not something I commonly use in everyday life, in fact I despise feeling sad about someone else's predicament, it is in my intent to give helpful advice in solving the said situation of awkwardness that most people feel when trying to talk with someone who they view as attractive.

I don't think cidwind42 was patronizing you so much as quoting Charlie Sheen's character to be facetious. I actually had to look up Charlie Harper, I've never seen that show, but I heard it's funny.
