Something that we've probably all experienced, but doesn't get brought up very often outside of occasional feels thread posts. What have your con crush experiences been like? Any positive outcomes? Were they the one that got away? Share your stories here.
Am a guy and have been told by gulls to cut contact and atop being friends with my con crushes.O-okay.
Rink from the Midwest scene has a thotty ldr gf. Sad! Cutest cosplay guy I’ve seen in person.
>>10155255Mine only lives a couple hours away but there's a border in the way and I have no passport. I also have no desire to ever enter her country and as far as I know she only comes down for the con. She's fun to hang with but with my luck she's probably gay.It's for the best, really. Unless you live less than an hour away from them you'll never see each other outside of that one con and nothing substantial will ever come of your feelings. Find a real gf and make her your con crush or do what I do and keep everybody at arm's length so they can't hurt you.
>>10155248It's awkward to have crushes on female cosplayers with even small social media followings nowadays. How exactly are you going to differentiate yourself from the other legion of thirsty dudes who "like her"? I've been con crushed on by girls at cons before. Both times have led to tragedy, and one even ended with me being with a girl romantically for about 6 years behind her fiance's back, with the promise that she'd eventually break up with him. I've decided to just go to con parties and meetups and bang cos-girls instead of forming lasting relationships. Seems less painful this way.
Like 6 years ago I met a boy at Katsu that I developed a huge crush on after spending a night around him during a /cgl/ meet.I had a boyfriend that time and the next time I saw him another guy we know threatened him to stay away from me cause he had a thing for me.Long story short, feels like a missed connection. I still know him, but I am with the angry one now. He is still a cute guy and I wish him the best.
I've had a huge con crush on a girl for almost a year now, which is strange especially because I almost never develop crushes on people. We met at a con event and became friends, and have done quite a few cosplays with each other over the past year (including couple cosplays), but she lives over an hour away from me, and is much closer friends with the other people we met at that event, which is my fault, because I never really pushed us to become close friends (since I've been dealing with some personal stuff the last little while). But yeah, I'm almost 100% sure she doesn't have feelings for me, and I'd never pursue it, because I really do enjoy just having her friendship. Plus, idek if she's gay; she was once asked about her sexuality in front of me and she gave a really roundabout answer that was basically just "I'm not sure". A girl can dream, though. I'm on the west coast, where like every girl that cosplays is lgbt, so hopefully I'll be able to move on sooner rather than later.
I have a con crush on this girl, and I have no idea if she likes me too or is just being nice to me, and its driving me crazy.Also worried she thinks I'm gay with my best friend.
Male hereAre there any straight up signs that a woman might be into you?
>>10155470Yes. Be wary of booty grabs
I'm pretty sure my con crush is gay. Which is ironic because I'm also gay I'm not usually into guys, but, this dude is always cosplaying my video game husbandos and he also lifts so he's got this toned body and a cute face... Not to mention cosplaying the niche shit that I'm intoAnyway I usually just shyly wave at him and say 'Hi!' and then run away when I see him at cons so he doesn't really know that I exist. I've been making more friends in the local cosplay community so it may be inevitable that our friend groups collide at some point and I really don't know what I'll do then because I'm really awful about talking to people I like.
>>10155278>keep everybody at arm's length so they can't hurt youThats a terrible way to experience this short life. Embrace the pain, anon.
>>10155248I normally only lurk but I'll bite. I had a con crush about 7 years ago. Karaoke has always been my favorite part of conventions, and she was an incredible singer that liked a lot of the same songs I did, mostly old 80s and 90s classics. I'm pretty socially awkward typically, and so was she, but somehow we ended up chatting despite our social ineptitude. We ended up chilling together for about 90 percent of the con, sang some Duets, and traded contact info at the end. We didn't really talk outside of the con though, and were located too far from each other geographically to hang out anyways. We continued to meet at that convention for 2-3 years, and at this point I was realizing how much of a crush I had on her. I actually broke up with my long term girlfriend, feeling like I had more shared passions with my con crush than with her, and promised myself I would ask her out during the next yearly con. Before the convention I messaged her, only to find that she couldn't make it that year. The same happened the next year. The third year, I was ready to give up on going. This convention was too far for me to continue traveling and it felt empty without her those two years. I was mulling over whether to cancel my hotel reservation or not, and messaged her as usual to ask if she was going. This time though, something seemed different... She was bringing up our past convention years a lot and I got a vibe that she might actually like me back. The conversation eventually steered toward relationships, and we basically confessed to liking each other.
>>10155846(continued)We went to the convention that year for the first time as a couple. We then started flying frequently cross country to see each other. Eventually the separation of a long distance relationship started becoming too much to bear, and she took the leap to move out to my area so we could continue to be together. Now, as of last year, we are happily married. It honestly has felt almost unreal, because I never expected myself to be this happy in a relationship and to have this kind of life. Before this, I was basically resigned to be foreveralone.Tl;dr - I had a con crush once, and now we're happily married and inseparable. Follow your dreams, people... You never know if your con crush actually has a crush on you too.
I went to a convention recently and met this really cute dude, but I think he might be asexual and not a homo.Also saw a cosplayer I really wanted to ask out, but I didn't want to be annoying, oh well.
>>10155852>I was basically resigned to be foreveralone>my long term girlfriend
>>10155852Oh man. This story gives me a lot of hope. Congrats!
>>10155386Why are you with the angry one? Life is too short for that much stress.Anyway my con crush is a really cool, wholesome dude, we talk quite a bit online but he has a girlfriend and I also have a SO that I'm not interested in betraying, so it's just a little fun feeling I have and I get to feel fluttery the few times a year I see him. It's not causing me any pain.
>>10155899That's a different unrelated story. We were both settling for each other even though we didn't feel the same way we used to. We were basically together just out of obligation. Meeting my con crush gave me some perspective on that. After breaking up with her, and my crush missing the convention for 2 years, I was starting to accept that it would likely never happen and that I had missed my one chance to be with someone that I really connected with.
>first con crush: taken in a straight relationship>next con crush: taken, also in a straight relationship>taken but in a gay relationship>taken in a straight ship>gay ship>advanced straight ship and two provinces over>don't know but prolly single???>gay ship and well out of my league>knew each other from hs, thought about seeing how it might work out not long before/after graduating, but then straight shipAnd it's usually the smarter ones that are in the gay/lesbian relationships too.
>>10155555But the pain will only make life shorter and I'm already expecting to be dead by 40.
>>10155939Why wait ?
>>10155987I need to at least outlive all the people I'd disappoint by dying prematurely.
>>10155939A psychologist buddy of mine tells everyone and I quote "9 out of 10 people you meet will either be complete bat shit crazy or professional assholes, (maybe a bit of both) the other one will be gold. So go out there and meet 90 douchebags so you can get 9 solid friends and possibly a soul mate."
How do I kiss? I've never had a girlfriend before.
>>10156055You mean you didn't practice for girls with your friends as a kid? Shit, dude, I have some bad news.
Was at a con a while back and happened to be in line for the free con photographer and there was a lone storm trooper in front of me with his helmet on. We were chatting to pass the time, he complimented me on my costume and I his and asked how he made his armor, etc. It was hot in the hallway so he took his helmet off and he was the most handsome man I have ever seen, I nearly blurted that out right to him. We continued our pleasant conversation while waiting when suddenly his girlfriend that I didn't know he had, came up and he went to talking to her immediately (which I completely understand and don't blame him for) but it killed me and I still think about him. He was so nice, made his own costume and could have been a damn model, I'll never see that again.
I like a girl who's a year older than me, but sadly I'm not in the con scene, I've been to a few cons and she was in those cons too.I hope I meet her again one day but she's leaving the country
Once, it was really cringe. It was an underage girl who I never even spoke to, she was just orbiting one of my friends.Added a bunch of my mutuals online and people realized what she was trying to do. A few years later she apologized to me out of the blue, but I never really cared so I brushed it aside.And there was this other time years back where a girl invited me to a cosplay raid and her hotel but I was too autistic to pick up on any signs and just shitposted
>>10155248I'm just a retard uggo and he's an e-famous pro. I think it turned into more than a silly crush and I can't do anything about it. I'm just a fan in the middle of thousands of others. Like hell I'd absolutely love to at least be a close friend of them but I know my ugly retarded ass can't do that especially since we're continents away. What hurt even more is that he got called out and exposed and that shit hurt like hell. I don't know how to feel. They've always been really kind to me and it seems so genuine (this coming from a cynic person too) but I can kind of see him doing the stuff he got called out for, too. And yet my dumbass is still longing for him. Heart wants what it wants. i still try to get something positive out of it though. they inspired me in lots of ways. made me lose fear of cosplay with my body. but man, fuck feelings.
>>10156064I had self esteem issues growing up so I never got into a relationship. I'm a bit better now but I'm scared because of my lack of experience.
>>10155912Angry one did the whole "meet a girl and settle down thing". He took the initiative and made himself a better man when I rebuffed him without me pushing him to. This was years ago at this point. He is still pretty angry but he is an adult who knows how to handle those feelings now and apologizes when he makes mistakes. He is actually better friends with the cute guy than me now.
>>10156226>Lack of experienceThat's the big thing. Being 26 and not knowing how to navigate a relationship scares a lot of people away.
>>10155285are female cosplayers really that easy to get?where do you live?
>>10156486No, but at parties there is usually some who are interested. This is not a cosplay vs normal girl thing.It is a some girls like to have sex in a group of any girls thing. Then add alcohol.
>>10155484>>10156496>Tfw too scary looking to get harassed/assaulted
>>10156558>tfw resting pissed off facepeople literally only talk to me when they ask for help in the gym, but i think that's because i tend to make silly faces after finishing particularly tough sets. I think it's because my eyelashes are thin as hell, so i squint all the time, making me look angry
Never had a crush but this happened very recently.>Went to annual con in cosplay for the first time in my life >Did the usual shit, karaoke and games >Get to talk with way more people than usual however because of the cosplay>Cool weekend all around>Fast forward to today>Friend contacts me saying he has something to show me on "Instagram" (got no phone, never browsed that shit)>There's an account with the con's name that is basically about posting anonymous crushes to find back certain people >Someone made a post mentioning me>It's definitely a girlNot sure whether to contact back or not basically. Even if I do I don't think I'll be able to keep regular exchanges, since I'm already not so much into social stuff.
I didn't meet him at a con but we have mutual cosplay friends so I found him on facebook. He was the most beautiful person I had ever seen!He's from America, I am European.It seemed like a stretch but we met up half a year ago when he flew over to Europe for a con.Now he's about to move to my city and we are steadily building a relationship!I'm glad I dm'd him when I did.
I'm too shy/worried about being creepy to talk with someone one-on-one (even if I have an obvious 'in' like our cosplay matching) actually at the convention, be it on the floor or at panels and meetups.Instead I usually meet people and make friends in groups, and typically I end up getting a crush on one of the girls (even in non con/fandom scenarios). but then:>am I moving too fast/aggressive?>will it make things awkward with the rest of the group?>what if she taken?>is she straight, even>you don't even know her, you just think she's cute and you have a couple of surface-level common interests>relationship virgin in upper 20s and don't even know HOW to ask someone outEventually I find a way to talk myself out of a crush.. maybe they post a hot take or otherwise demonstrate they have bad taste or are obnoxious on Twitter and I tell myself "well I guess it wasn't meant to be! Oh well." and go on just being friends with only a very occasional heartstring tug.In the end, I'm fine being single but that 10% of the time when I feel alone and lonely does get to me.someday I will post in threads like >>10126853 dammit
>>10156926Protip: the best moment to ask out a girl as the first time you feel as possible romantic connection to her.You should show that you're interested in her in that way and then workout if you guys are compatible together. I know it feels like a shock to your system at first if they say no but most girls can and will go on to be friends with you fine if they don't feel for you that way.The casual romantic move becomes a lot less casual after you've been hanging out for a whole weekend or whatever.Does that make sense?
Once in 2014 I had like 4 con crushes at the same con.. It actually led to my first con abortion. Went with a guy from highschool and we ran into some of his old friends, one of them dressed as Uzu Sanageyama so we really hit it off since I was cosplaying Nonon. They were SUPER sweet and treated me to dinner and drinks.Settled down now and living the quiet life, but sometimes I yearn for those good old days. Actually married that highschool friend so that's nice.Sometimes I wonder if they weren't the ones that got away though.
>>10157317first con abortion? lmao. so there have been more? what a whore.
>>10157317>con abortion hold the fuck upas in you had to leave a con, or you had to terminate the life of a fetus that was conceived at a con?
>>10157318Yes I had some crazy years but I've left all that behind now. Please keep your comments to yourself."Do not judge, so you won't be judged either." Matthew 7:1>>10157337First the second, then the first. Although I didn't really abandon the con, just did a driveby abortion so to speak. The dates happened to align and I still caught most of the con.
>>10156033that's weirdly inspiring
>>10155922>tfw not intelligent enough to be gay
>>10157317>my first con abortion
>>10156496what r u gay?
>>10157340>Please keep your comments to yourself.what a whore.
I had one con crush ever, we were each other's first gay crush. It was really great until I learned she was batshit crazy into fandom things/otps and sort of in general. We were on and off for a couple years. I think she only liked me cause I cosplayed her otp and that happens a lot with con crushes. Cosplay relationships are bullshit 75% of the time
I was 16 and tried to flirt with cute med student. I even tried to learn to play Magic the Gathering even though I hate card games. I didn’t get laid. Desperate times.
>>10155939same, but I still want to get some stuff done. So experience some pain, learn from it and the get the satisfaction from the things you conquer.Then like me, think about how you are going to kys when you get in your 40's
>>10157317You fuckn CRAZY coked out whore
>>10157340>quoting the bible to justify an abortioni mean... come on. i'm pro abortion but you must be trolling.
>>10155846>>10155852I want to live and BREATHE this.
>>10157340>quoting the bible >on 4chan bro...
>>10158432where have you been? being a hardcore christian is the big edgy redpill now, especially with /pol/acks or whatever
>>10158237I am NOT justifying it. They were mistakes (yes even fun things can be mistakes) and I deeply regret it. I can't take it back (even though I wouldn't want to), but I have made up for my mistakes and I am sure He will forgive me.>>10157529>>10158235I thought this was a thread for sharing your con crushes but if your all just going to be judgemental ASSHOLES about it then I made a mistake coming in this thread..Maybe you are probably just a bunch of angry lurking itas too scared to leave your house and actually go to a con and just come here to rip on non losers.BTW I probably lived out your OTP at some point while you were looking at con pics from home so ha :)
>>10158608ok so if i get your timeline correctlyyou hook up with several guys at a con that you had crushes onthen you found out you were pregnantthen you aborted at the same con?that makes absolutely no sense. do you mean you used a morning after pill? because that isn't abortion
>>10158614Nooo, the abortion was way later, I didnt even know until I started showing a bit.I planned my second abortion during the same weekend in the same city as a con so I just went to both lolThat one didnt really have to do with my con crush story but someone asked sooo..
>>10158608>then i made a mistake coming in this thread You made a mistake coming in 4chan like those men made a mistake coming in you.
>>10157340Begone dirty whore!
>>10158608> I can't take it back (even though I wouldn't want to)
>>10158608Wanna have another one Anon?
>>10155248Met my loving gf at a con. >best friend of mine>cleared a phone number of an older woman, maybe 3 years older than him>fast forward a week after con>She has 2 kids and a husband>Is a total NEET, "family" lives on welfare>Bangs her hard>She falls in love with him. Even wanted to leave her kids and stuff>His face when>Friend said no ofc and ghosted her>Keep telling him to go to a motel if he bangs crazy chicksOne day he is gonna get himself killed by some real life yandere
>>10157340>abusing christian principles to justify years of amoral behavior
>>10158608>I made a mistake coming in this thread..Yeah, I'll say>Maybe you are probably just a bunch of angry lurking itas too scared to leave your house and actually go to a con and just come here to rip on non losers.Personal attacks? What a shame, I am even more disappointed in you. How's your relationship with your father?
>>10158608"I'm a good christian guys, don't judge me for being a whore" "you're all angry fat itas and I did dumb stuff so you're probably jealous, take that judgement"Way to be a hypocrite
>Youmacon 2018>Wearing my new kid Simon cosplay, was super pumped>Crowd into an elevator on my way to a panel, 10/10 cutie enters next to me>She starts rubbing my arm and chatting me up, smiling, etc.>Anxiety spikes, pic related>Elevator opens, apologize for being in a hurry and speed walk outta here>Proceed to 180 anytime I saw her for the rest of the dayI wish I wasn't so bashful, but I guess it fit the cosplay lmao
There's probably multiple women and men crushing on me at a given moment. Too bad for them I never let anyone get close enough to me for a relationship to ever happen.
>>10158608>aybe you are probably just a bunch of angry lurking itas too scared to leave your house and actually go to a conor maybe we're just dumb enough to not need 2 abortions??? how fucking retarded do you have to be to not learn after the first one?
>>10160046OK sorry we can't all be as perfect as you, Mrs. "I only need 1 abortion to learn my lesson".>>10159884>>10159897The thing is the thread ASKED for con crushes, nobody TOLD you to then come be judgemental bitches. Here's something I WILL tell you though: FUCK OFF!And the fact that I am no longer on speaking terms with my father is none of your business.
>everyone falling for obvious bait
>>10159961Looks like someone has an ego.
>>10155248>be me, huge Jurassic Park fan>Cosplay Claire Dearing to Dragoncon 2015, right after Jurassic World comes out>meet guy dressed as Owen Grady who looks exactly like Chris Pratt>we walk around together all day Sunday, take photos with other JW cosplayers>have a fucking blast>exchange numbers>he never texts me backIt was probably because I acted really autistic, but I hadn't met any serious Jurassic fans IRL before and he was so much fun to hang out with
>>10157482no, only want equal rights for men and women
>>10155470If she>Laughs at shit you say that isn't funny>plays with her hair while talking and maintaining eye contact>Feels comfortable touching you unprovoked>gets in your faceyou have permission to cum inside of her
>>10159871I don't understand that story
>>10155285Ignore her online presence entirely, or follow but don’t make a big deal out of it. They’re sleezeballs but pick up artists know a thing or two that’s not horseshit. If you want someone to pay attention to you, male or female, don’t ignore them but don’t prioritize them either. No ones going to be attracted to captain thirst, but in a social situation, prioritize the women you’re not interested in, and go in on the one you want at the end.
I actually met my current boyfriend at a con. I'd gone this con for the weekend fresh from ending a 7 year relationship after being cheated on. I'd gone to the con with friends and I hadn't planned on hooking up with anyone or meeting anyone new. I just wanted to enjoy the weekend. The Saturday at the masquerade ball my boyfriend caught my eye and I was instantly attracted. Now after being single for the first time in 7 years I was rubbish at flirting and tried to catch his eye xD in the end my friend basically approached him and said I thought he was cute. He then approached me and we chatted and had drinks and I actually stayed in his room that night. We do live 2 hours away from each other sadly but we do still see each other out of cons regularly. I even plan on making the leap to move to his area later this year.
>>10160841This changes quite a few of my experiences at my last convention. I think I might wear my steampunk stuff to a few more.
>>10162099>steampunk to get laid lol
>>10155248>find out from friend later on that the cool dude I met at the con asked her if I had a bf>how the FUCK did someone think a dumbass who couldn't stop dancing and giggling like an idiot to Bandit Radio was attractive>seriously I couldn't fucking stop
>>10159871Literally what the fuck are you trying to say?
>>10162382Anon's friend keeps putting his dick in crazy, is probably going to get murdered by one of them
>>10155255Well why would you settle with friendship in the first place?
Is it normal for a female cosplayer to ask for a kiss after you take a picture with her? It happened to me and i m confused plz help
>>10155846>>10155852good for you. my story is almost completely the same. but like a few months before the con I wasn't planning on going to, she convinced me. and after a little more talking she said he liked me. now the very first time I met this girl I thought she was one of the most beautiful women I'd ever seen, plus she was just really cool all around. her laugh is still the most amazing thing I've ever heard. after we both said we liked the other. we did the long distant dating thing. lots of videos and pics of whatever we were doing that day. what I'm assuming was the guy she really wanted finally had the balls to tell her how he felt. about 3 weeks before the con she convinced me to go to, where we were going to do a bunch of date stuff we'd planned, she told me about this other guy, and "blah blah distance blah blah" I was crushed, still am. my last relationship was awful before her, so i wasn't really looking for anything at the time. something happened the night before my plane left. [spoiler] I had already tried to get refunded [/spoiler] which sent me into a depressed state. so, I was going to a con to be with some body who didn't want to be with me and I had more shit to deal with. I said something to her that was said from a place of hurt and not really anger, even if there was a bit. she was mad at me. she confronted me about it. we talked and made up, she was still going to be with the other guy. nothing happened. on a rainy Friday afternoon. we just laid on the bed not talking about anything and everything. I looked into her face. she did the Eskimo kiss nose thing and looked up at me. at that moment I completely fell for her. I still feel that way about her. it's almost been a year. I'm trying to get over her, I really am. I've been on a few dates. but none of them can hold a candle to her. which is a messed up thing because she doesn't want me, I know that. I know I should move on, but my heart hurts. every other girl reminds me of her.
>>10163109It's not very typical, either she's into you or she's just like that
>>10162111Dressing akin to the formal uniform of an 1800's officer looks handsome. Wearing brown leather top hats and gears everywhere looks stupid.
Everytime I go to a con I get a mild crush on some girl that I desperately hope will start talking to me or that I run into again after walking past but I have a girlfriend, so I go home disappointed but not full >tfw no gfI think more than anything it's just the company, I don't really want a relationship just a friendship with a fun girl. I've got guy friends but they're not really excitable like I am.
>>10160917>He then approached me and we chatted and had drinks and I actually stayed in his room that night.Did you fuck all night?
>>10160841what sort of personality allows for a girl to get up in your face? I think I'm too soft-spoken which you think would allow for a girl to be more assertive
>>10160917did you have segs with him on the first night
>>10165822Definitely shy guys with a natural flirty attitude. The guys who are shoujo-manga material without meaning to are the best.
>>10166184I'm a shy person with fairly effeminate features, but I'm also a loner.I'd also call myself cutesy and flirty when I feel comfortable.I just started an outfit and want to start going to cons by myself to try and put myself out there and gain more confidence.Where do you even start to meet people at cons, especially when being shy is what is desired in the male?Should I just awkwardly join social events at the con and sit on the sidelines alone, waiting for some predatory girl to prey on me?
I fucked a legal midget at an east coast con. 4'7. Great pussy.
>>10166908Which con was it? I want to know where to find a smol weeb gf.
>>10166994Otakon back in Baltimore.
I liked pretty much any girl I ever fucked at a con, and some of the ones I couldn't fuck, like this really fucking cute girl who made out with me out of nowhere and then acted real weird when she saw me later the same dau
Auress makes my pp stand up pretty fast. I dont know why but I desperately want to meet her so I can pork her at a con might be able to do so too.
All this thread did was made me realize how dense I am. Then again I’m sure all the girls that give me attention when I wear revealing cosplay are not legal, so maybe being dense is a good thing.
>tfw chiseled lean 5'5 body straight outta /a/ and /fit/>will attract too much attention so i don't goWhat are the rules for open chest/torso in cons? Im a dude.
>Only con crush torpedoed her cosplay career while bullying a high school girl to the point of suicide and is getting married to some chode she met online. >took me three years to realize i dogged a bullet.
I'm in my late 20s, so any girl I'm interested in at a con is either underage or taken.I've given up on finding anyone there and while I do hang out with strangers, I rarely learn names or exchange info.Falling for a girl and finding out she's still in high school is a bitter pill and I honestly can't tell when they're in costume.
>>10169946It depends heavily on the con, check the website for their specific policy, but a lot of them allow men to go shirtless
>>10169946Mind posting a picture?
>>10169994I've never really learned how to tell the age of someone by looking at them.Plus I've been confused for being under 18 when clean shaven despite being 27 so that could cause more issues as well.
>>10169946no nipples allowed at most cons
>>10170819Even with bodypaint over them? Black/purple.
>>10170733Same, senpai. At my last con I hung out with this really cool girl for the whole afternoon then I connected the dots and realized she was, like, 17.
im pretty sure ive only had 1 brief con crushone i knew who i roomed with and another i only knew briefly. the first one was pretty cool and literally everything i could want in someone to date, but they lived far from me and they were in a relationship by the time i thought of asking them out which was way past the date of the con we roomed in
>>10170733something ive learned some someone else is that if a place has like 21+ types of bands that makes finding whos older a bit more easier.
>>10170974Is that thing at some cons? That'd be helpful as shit. My local con only gives out wrist stamps in order to access 18+ panels/events but you can also tell with badges since every badge for underage attendees has a big fat (M)inor or (C)hild on it. Any badge without these letters is theoretically being worn by an adult. Doesn't help at all for IDing who's old enough to drink or rent a car, though.
>>10157045I want to piggyback on to this to say as a girl who is single but not interested in anything romantic, I 100% prefer if a guy makes it clear early on that he’s looking for a gf. It’s stressful not knowing if someone is interested in you romantically and they don’t make it clear. You’re afraid that if you reject them before they make a move they’ll call you presumptuous, but if you just wait and see it’s like you’re leading them on. If it’s clear from the start I can turn them down and maybe be friends (in which case i am a pro wingwoman). And you’ll save time if you don’t wait around
>>10160822haha look at this virgin, acts like everyone thinks like his incel circle
I get crushes easy, so ive had several. First was at my first Acen. We've actually tried dating a couple times, but it never worked and she's become one of my best friends in the world. Most of the others were just there for a weekend then done, though one had a few cons of seeing her around before i told her how I felt and got rejected. The latest came out of a hookup that became hanging out and then a series of hookups, a cute femboy who returns the crush but for various reasons we've decided to basically be affectionate fwb.
>>10170955Two things. >I know about being on the other side of that. >Here is a handy dandy chart I picked up from being on that other side.
>>10172336I appreciate that, but I'm in my late 20s so its just not happening
>>10155846>>10155852Gives me some hope, thanks anon.
>>10162112That sounds adorable though
If a girl wants to take a picture of you and asks her friend to do so(and even asks some fatfuck stranger to take a pic with both of yous) does that mean she's into you?Ive had it a couple times when I crossplay, even them telling me i look beautiful and shit. maybe they have some sorta fetish I guess
>>10173283Nah dude she probably just liked your costume
>>10173304ah ok, cause its been like 75/25 female to male that ask for pics or more skewed, so I was kind of wonderin if I was bein hit on, since im too autistic
>>10173308I know that feel. I always have to tell myself not to overthink things.
>>10172336At a certain point, you really have to stop caring what the age of consent is because its always too young.My rule now is if they're too young to drink, they're too young period. Even that's getting dicey, though as I get older.
This topic speaks to me so much lmao. Literally all the girls I'm into tho are dating someone or are lesbo, so it really is unfortunate.I don't even bother with normie girls at this point desu, I literally have nothing in common with them except maybe one or two things like sports and shit, but like I feel retarded trying to hold a convo with a girl who isn't at least a bit into nerd culture.
I've had a bad expirence with dating a girl I had a crush on at con. And now I don't attend that convention anymore.
>>10173283>If a girl wants to take a picture of you and asks her friend to do so(and even asks some fatfuck stranger to take a pic with both of yous) does that mean she's into you?no it doesn't
I've never really had con crushes. I'm too nervous to try and follow up with any girl because I'm too afraid as coming across as creepy. Plus I'm really not that attractive, I doubt anyone would take interest in me.
>>10179282I feel this feel anon, well except for the part where I know I'm alright looking. But I used to be a total fat fuck and it absolutely dumpstered my self esteem for years, made me super anxious. As a result I haven't actually approached any cosplayers I found attractive at cons because I don't want to come off as "that guy".
>>10179289I feel you deeply, anon. I too was fat, or at least more fat than I am now. It's a long process, but I'm starting to look decent now. And yeah I feel like I'm getting to the point where it feels impossible to meet anyone. I hope we both make it out, brother.
>>10155278Out of all the terrible people here, I respect this anon.
Last year I've seen one of the cutest Ryuko Matoi school uniform cosplayers that really enjoyed herself with a rhythm game at Otakon. She always did a little dance as she was pressing the buttons near the monitor. I've seen her a couple of times after that and my heart always fluttered.
>>10168105Ah otakon such a good con to get pussy in
>>10155248>Something that we've probably all experienced>Any positive outcomes?
>>10155248She was a qt, lived too far for anything serious as I'm not into long distance stuff.
Does anyone remember that 20something dude who used to cosplay comic/animated Joker really well on the West Coast? He used to show up to every Big Wow (SVCC) now and when he hosted a panel last year, there were a ton of fan girls? I always found him cute. What happened to him?
>>10166463You do whatever you feel like, go to whatever events seem interesting to you. Lol good luck, not being proactive makes it difficult.
>>10157340Pretty sure "Thou shalt not murder" takes precedence if you're going to try and pull the religion card.
>>10157340Use the Christian card, actually aborted more then one baby.........
I've had a few. My first one was a random attendee at Ohayocon back in 2010. We spent most of the con hanging out and chatting with his friends. We exchanged numbers and talked for some time until I broke my phone in like, early 2012. Haven't been able regain contact with him since. Another crush I had was a really handsome Kaworu cosplayer I spent a good chunk of time chatting with at Youmacon. I think that was either 2013 or 2014. Not sure. I forgot to get his number and the only thing I remember is him telling me his first name. My next crush was a fellow rhythm game fan I met at Anime Midwest in like, 2016. We followed each on all social media pages, exchanged numbers and were intimate at least once. He stopped talking to me only a few months ago though. Which sucks because he was a pretty dope friend. I developed a crush on a Bahn cosplayer at Colossalcon last year but didn't pursue it out of fear of looking stupid. I regret that move.
>don't go to /cgl/ for literal years>accidentally click on board>hmm what's this thread about?>an actual con abortionAh, nothing around here has changed I see.
Cosplay women are broken, don't fall for them. Admire, don't waste your time though.
>miss chance on fucking your cosplay friend because you're too dumb to realise they were hitting on you
>>10181926>Have a day ticket for a weekend long convention.>Get introduced to a girl during the con by a mutual friend.>Really hit it off, spend all day together just having fun with eachother.>Leave to nearby campsite with her and some mutual friends to chill at the campfire for a bit before I'll catch the last train home.>Her: "Hey Anon, you could stay with me in my tent tonight if you want. That way you can stay and have more fun with me.">Me: "Nah, I got a day ticket for the con so I'm better off taking the last train home in a bit.">Her: "You could also go home tomorrow morning after getting some sleep, no?">Me: "Yeah but my bed at home is more comfortable than sleeping in your tent. Besides you only have a one person inflatable bed so we wouldn't fit anyway.">Actually thought it was weird she tried to convince me to stay for the night as it would just be a huge inconvenience to me.>Didn't realize what she meant until weeks later when our mutual friend asked me why I turned her down.I would like to say I'm not as clueless today as I was 10 years ago, but that would be lying.
>>10182004>Con>Campsite>TentDid your friend hook you up with a homeless chick or do cons happen in the middle of the woods where you live?
met this super hot BOTW link cosplayer who was like 6ft tall at fanime 2017 and kept looking for him years afterward but never did find him again.... someday my link will come
>>10182004Anon look at your own Answer not only did you turn her down by saying something like my bed at home is more comfortable you might as well of told her 'No I cant wait to get out of here'
Anyone have any advice for getting a qt3.14 cosplay girl to fall in lesbians with me?
>>10182134Be an equally cute cosplay girl? You already have the statistical advantage (though it'd be higher if you were both lolitas) so you may as well just ask them to get a drink or whatever. It's been my experience that any female cosplayer that isn't physically attached to a dude is gay or asexual. Worst case scenario, they politely decline your advances without making a scene because you're a girl and therefore not a threat. Best case, you acquire one qt cosplay gf. Go get some.
>>10182134Not saying shit like "getting a qt3.14 cosplay girl to fall in lesbians with me" is a good start
>>10182134In the same situation as you anon :( Most lesbian cosplayers I know are either polyamorous (not rly into that) or already in a relationship, so I already feel kinda stuck, but I'm too much of a wimp to approach a girl anyway :/
>>10182085There is a camping con in the summer here in the UK I'm going to guess it is not that one though
>>10182085>>10182217This convention took place in the only hotel that town had. It was way too expensive for teenage weebs so instead a lot of us would stay at a cheap secured campsite at a 20 minute walk from the convention. It had toilets, showers, lockers and electricity so it really wasn't that bad. Keep in mind this was in a world before AirBNB, Ubers and such a thing so your options really were limited while on a strict budget.>>10182106Trust me, I would totally slap some sense into past me if I could. The only reason I remember this so clearly is because it's one of those embarrassing moments my brain occasionally likes to remind me about whenever I can't fall asleep.
that's a nice man you have there, would be a shame if someone were to steal him
>>10182299fuck him, ill take the girl
>>10182190god same. doesn't help that i look like fucking napoleon dynamite. i've actually been on dates with some gorgeous girls in the last year but they're all so boring man... we had nothing to talk about. i want to date a con girl so we'll have something in common and someone i can actually drag to conventions regularly
I remember this happening the very first con I went to, which was ACEN 2011; there was this really cute Misty cosplayer who randomly walked up to me and my cousin walking around and ask for a picture of ME (I wasn't cosplaying, first con so just dressed casually).She was really really cute and I still have never forgotten it to this day, and still have no idea why she asked to take a pic with me when I wasn't even cosplaying. Never got her name or number because was lolyoung and Instagram wasn't a thing yet.
>>10182299Jokes on you anon, I'd ditch the boyfriend to run off with her
>>10182144Thanks for the encouragement. Whenever I go to cons, it’s always with friends I rarely ever see so I feel weird ditching them to try and pick up girls. Maybe I’ll go solo to a local summer con as day trip and try to find a girl then>>10182190>>10182793I feel you guys. I just love cosplaying and crafting with other people. It would be so nice to have a partner who’s just as into it as I am. Good luck to you homos>>10182524Thank you for getting my reference
Ah con crushes... I've had a handful over the years, but I'll only go into two. The one that hit me the hardest was a girl I met while cosplaying. We chatted about each others' cosplay and really hit it off. We lived rather far from each other, so we met up at the occasional con and flirted over text for a long time. It got to the point where we would talk at least a little every day. We did a few couple-cosplays and slept together once. At some point down the road she invited me to a party at her house. I committed to going, but since I was so far away it only made sense to go the night before and stay the night with her. A few days before the party, she told me she just started dating someone. I was gutted; we had been flirting mere days before so I didn't see that coming at all. I drove up anyway, hundreds of miles, slept on her couch, and genuinely enjoyed the party. We all drank and stayed the night. In the morning, she emerged from her bedroom with her new boyfriend and a hickey on her neck. The situation was a bit painful, but I understood. I could never be what she wanted or needed. We lived very different lives hundreds of miles apart, and I was in a committed long term (poly) relationship with my now fiancee. We're still friends and meet up at cons. I wish she were more honest with me leading up to that situation, but I don't hold a grudge. We had good times and good feelings along the way, and I value those experiences.
>>10183670cont.My favorite one though is my current one. She is a gorgeous chaos lesbian that I met through a mutual friend. I knew that she was strictly a lesbian and not bi from her own account and from others', so I never even imagined anything happening. Well at some point we all got drunk and started discussing our various kinks. I sensed interest from her in something I was describing, so I asked her later when we were sober if she wanted to try it. To my surprise, she was game, so I brought my 'equipment' to the next con. We had a good time and decided to make it a regular thing, so we hook up at any con we're both at (Since we're also hundreds of miles apart). She broke lesbian edge for it, which is flattering. Turns out one can be lesbian for romantic partners without being so restrictive physically. Now I suppose we're friends with benefits?
>>10183673>I had sex with a lesbianshe’s not a lesbian then>Turns out one can be lesbian for romantic partners without being so restrictive physicallythat’s not how lesbianism works
>>10183701Funny thing, words. They mean different things to different people. I used her words. If that's how she chooses to identify, who am I to argue. Disagree if you like, but I'm not planning to argue semantics.
>>10157340you disgusting fucking whore.
>>10183673So did you actually have sexual intercorse, or is your thing and "tools" related to bondage or something that can be done non-sexually? Because if it's penis in vagoo, she's not a lesbian. If you're tying her up and spanking her or doing things that don't involve actual intercourse, then she can still be a lesbian, because you're not fucking. You can do a lot of kinky things that are considered non-sexual by a lot of people.
>>10183743If you must know, then yes we did.I'm not sure why this matters so much to you. Like I said, call it what you will. You're not going to convince me to disrespect her by denying her identity, and I'm not trying to change your mind.
>>10183673so she pegged u lol
Meet and understanding it's nsa. Spend the weekend chilling and fucking. Keep in touch and stay cool. Con crushes make good cons great memories.
>>10157317What the fuck
Since this is already a con-hook-up thread, how easy is it to get one in european/german/austrian-cons
>>10184323Be attractiveDon't be unattractive
>>10184323bunch of political correct tards, and waaaay too many underage girls you'll never guess their age. But met my gf in one.just b yourself
Closest thing to a crush was seeing a cute fallout 4 cosplayer and me not having the balls to ask her if she was supposed to be curie because she looked identical to her
>>10184570so in short, hooking up isn't really a thing in european conventions, is it?
>>10155248Not me personally, but someone had one on me, I think. Read on for why I am dense as a rocl. I was at a con a few years ago, dressed as Joker, and a girl dressed as Harley Quinn walked up to me and asked to follow me around, handholding and all. She then asked if I had any gum, which I didn't, and I informed her of such. We eventually got separated at some point.It was about a week after the con that I realized what had happened. Haven't seen her since.
>>10184965>She then asked if I had any gumIs this suppose to be a signal for something? I swear I've heard something somewhere where if a girl asks you something like that she's interested in you.
>>10184969I think it is? I'm not exactly an expert in these things though, as can be seen.
>>10184969>>10184975It's a signal for "one of us has bad breath, please do something about it". This is why you never turn down someone who offers you gum and take some yourself when someone asks for gum.
>>10170955>>10172336I have had the same thing happen. It's annoying, especially I'm very clearly not underage. I could get into bars and clubs when I was like 16.
>>10155248mariedoll. since the first con here in houston. kept asking her out, but everytime had a bf (diff one every year). then she got really sick (lost a lot of weight), didn't know what happened to her.have a gf con (the way she says it) she's cute but has bf drama. at one con she straight up cried because bf didn't want her moving in with him. i txt her once in a while. nothing has come from it.
>>10157317>>10158608>>10158619>4 con crushes at the same con >first con abortionDid you let all 4 of them fuck you? Are you planning on telling your future spouse, or are you just going to choose someone desperate enough to accept you for the slut you are?
>>10185836Whew, did you go blind with rage? Anon said she's married.
I met somebody at a convention that was quite recent, actually.They were really funny, and we both had very similar tastes in things. So alike as to not only finish each other's sentences, but having near identical mannerisms. I passed them by the next day only once, for a passing "Hello," and although they asked for my Instagram, I haven't messaged them since the convention ended...I am so very struck by our connection that day, but I'm also too nervous to message them!I melt at the mere thought of them, but I feel that's the same reason I shouldn't get into this...
>>10155248end up meeting a bisexual girl who was really sweet and hung out with me for the dayalso lgbt+ and we talk about that for a while and bond some more and actually get her phone number but she never contacted me again after that and she didnt have any social media for me to talk/contact her through thereim still a little sad that i lost contact with her
>>10185915Sounds like you'd rather hesitate and strike out.
At Colossalcon this year, there was an extremely cute Frankenstein cosplayer who I saw while we were driving into the con. I went to a Fate panel and she was there, but she seemed to be with a guy already so I just pussied out like the bitch I am.
>someone posts their MGS1 snake cosplay to /cgl/>square jaw, well made cosplay, junk-outlining Spie harness and everything>have pic saved on my computer for a year+ as "thirst.jpg">one day at con I randomly see him>itsreallyhim.png>ask for pic and instead of posing he puts his arm around me for a selfie>soul leaves body>get nice pic togetherSigh... May we meet again....
>>10187320Mmm... I do not like to hear this. If there is one thing I refuse to be, it is one adverse to risk!I will message them, tonight! Thank you for the (if unintended) encouragement!
>>10187331Show us the thirst!
>be me>have a crush on this popular male costhot>knows he has a bad reputation for sleeping around >so far we are only friends and he treats me so well>scared to pursue him bc I fear I will be just another girl he fucked
Just got out of a pretty major con crush I guess, wouldn't mind getting it off my chest. I met a girl last March, & we hit it off really well. We became friends pretty easily, but not super close; she was pretty private about her personal life with our whole friend group, and I've been withdrawn from meeting new people as well the past while due to my mental health. By the summer, I was crushing on her though, and super hard. Which is a big deal, because I RARELY crush on people, and when I do, I feel it deep. I was pretty sure she was also gay, because of some comments she made (which I see now I likely misinterpreted), and the fact that we cosplayed a few lesbian ships together.By like, mid-Nov we drifted apart a bit due to both our work, & I kinda stepped back and realised that my crush was based on a lot of things that I had idealised in my head about her, and we hadn't really shared enough with each other to warrant a crush like this, & I had ignored some huge red flags in her personality, so by Jan, I had mostly forced myself over it. I kind of withdrew from the friendship a bit as well, since a lot of my enthusiasm for it was from infatuation, & in reality, we didn't have a lot in common at all. I still chat with her & see her at cons and stuff, and we're still friends, just less close than last year. At a con in May tho, I saw her again, and was really surprised to meet her boyfriend for the first time. Firstly since it was someone that a lot of my friends disliked, & secondly, I didn't even realise she had a boyfriend of several months (since we haden't been talking much). Though it wasn't as soulcrushing as it would have been six months ago, it definitely felt weird. Not bad, but weird. But yeah. Sorry for rambling, rant over. I feel like I matured a lot from this experience (even if most of it was in my head), and I'll be better equipped to not let infatuation & idealisation run me over in the future (am 20, haven't been in a relationship yet).
>>10189025Trust your gut. Go for FWB without strings if that's your bag but don't expect exclusivity.
I saw a really fucking good Junko Enoshima just getting into an Uber after Anime North this year. Best waifu and only good cosplay of her I’ve seen yet. Couldn’t find her on any pictures after the event and couldn’t ask for a pic as I was too far away.She was a cute skinny white girl and kinda short
I had a con friend who I always super lowkey had a crush on. Years later, after many cons together just as buddies, something really sparked between us. We’ve been together for a couple years now after relocating to the same state. We’re still bonding over cons and cosplay and everything is pretty amazing. Prior to us a few years ago, I would have never imagined this would be my life but I’m glad I listened to my heart and things ended up the way they did. Follow your hearts, anons!
is this tread dead?i wanna know more of these great con crush stories desu.
I currently have a crush on a fellow AA artist I see several times a year. They’re bi but seem to prefer the gender I am not and haven’t given me any other vibe but friendly. I have no plans to act on it since I’d rather not make future encounters uncomfortable between us or compromise my AA career but, boy, I can not wait until this crush finally fades away.
>>10182524You know, it's taken me till this moment to put together that Scott was probably thinking of the show The L-word. Thank you, the peanut that is my brain.At this point, having even con friends who aren't completely invested in their long term relationships or their cosplay fame would be a blessing. I'm still kinda down about the last girl who was still exploring her sexuality because she was stupidly cute and I really wanted to kiss her more.
I'm not sure if it's a crush... But I met the single-handedly most beautiful Giorno, Bruno and Mista at a con (at least in my eyes). But especially the Giorno... good god. It was like the demigod himself stepped on Earth to bless us with his presence.they made me refind my passion for photography too. got me so feelsy. I wish I could see them again. They were so nice too. I love them.feel like a creep though for some reason. (I hope this pic doesn't out me. if it does, I'm so sorry and I love you oh my god.)
>>10193174Lmao nice selfpost
>>10193185oh god oh fuck no NOshiti don't wanna tarnish their reputation making people think im selfposting as them or somethingFUCK I FUCKED UP
I was at a con with my gf recently and met a nice girl, talked about JoJo and Hollow Knight with her. She was pretty cute too.Now I can't stop thinking about her, even though I'm already in a relationship
>>10156568I've got resting caveman face. By default I'm squinting.
How do you even get a bf at a con? I feel like people are usually in groups or in cosplay where you don't even know what they look like. I just want a cosplay bf desu
>>10193731if you're a girl?A lot of people I know just set their tinder range to 1 mile at a con and swipe through he day. I've had a few booty calls that way
>>10193751They asked how to get a bf, not how to get a fuckboy
>>10184639Hooking up at cons only works if you can already do hooking up at bars
>>10194547Idk then, just all to people. If a guy is there and doesn't have a girl hanging on him he's probably single. Nerdy girls tend to be more possessive and hang right around their boyfriends, so just look for guys cosplaying series you like but without any women around them
>>10194547Sorry I thought they wanted a quick fuck from how shallow and focused on appearance they were.
>>10193731I always go to conventions solo as a boy but i never manage to be able to join in people's cliques very well. I even posted on the con's facebook page for people to hang out with, but.. noone responded. I guess just try finding someone who looks lonely.
>>10195901>cosplay>focused on appearancekek
>>10198306If your first thought when you're hitting on a guy is "well how does he look without makeup", that sounds like you just want a quick fuck lmao
>>10198432No anon. I want a long, slow fuck ;)
>>10159871I’m so fucking frustrated for no reason over reading this
Tfw no cosplay gf who wants to role play as the girls.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQ5iwGApwLMNever gonna get a chance to post this again
>>10194592Ok, already thought that>>10199352Why does she needs to roleplay as one?
rip this tread.
How do I get girls to talk to me at a con.I'm working out now and lost weight and am trying to get abs.I want a cute weeb gf.Of course I to to cons for my own amusement and with friends, but I wouldn't mind meeting some girls or anything. Seems like everyone but me always meets plenty of new people at cons but me.
>>10193174If that constitutes as a perfect Giorno maybe I should do something like that. But I'd rather cosplay part 8 Josuke
>>10187331>>10191022I met this person at nakakon and you wouldn't want to hang around them for long.They're incredibly immature.
i always see myself in the con crush thread after a major con, and it makes me cringe so hard
>>10206811>How do I get girls to talk to me at a con.>I'm working out now and lost weight and am trying to get abs.>I want a cute weeb gf.>Of course I to to cons for my own amusement and with friends, but I wouldn't mind meeting some girls or anything.

>>10207086If I was an incel I'd be blaming the women. I just don't want to annoy people with talking to them since they don't know me, but I also want to make friends.
>>10157340the replies to this make me realize the patriarchy is far from our biggest worry
I know the abortion shit ITT is trolling, but still, PSA to just let you know that you can 100% get years and years worth of birth control, in every form, from your local Health Department for free, right now.
>>10207180That's the wrong attitude to have, if you come with the mindset that your going to bother them, you're definitely gonna strike out.
>>10207200Is this an invitation to cum inside?
>>10207572reminder that birth control is only 97% effective. wrap that shit up
>>10207578The best analogy I can think of for using a rubber is that it's like eating a candy bar along with the plastic wrapper.
>>10207586you need to try the ultra thin japanese condoms
>>10207586Then use your hand
>>10207591How about we both use our hands on one another?
>>10155852Sometimes things work out. Good job.
I haven't actively browsed /cgl/ or cosplayed in years, aside from the odd pop-in here and there. This thread made me realize how much I missed it.I had a pretty bad crush on a girl I met at a con years ago and spoke with her every time we both went to the same con but nothing ever came of it, maybe something could have the first time we met. She was sending me all the right signals but because I was a sperglord of course I spilled my spaghetti walked away quickly and cried myself to sleep. Life goes on.
>>10155248>really into drinking, raving, and hooking up at cons>despite meeting a lot of girls through parties, always crush on girls that don't drink or party or do anything 'bad'>too afraid to do anything out of fear that they'll think I'm just trying to smashGrass is always greener and we'll always want what we can't have
as one of those good girls, we don't want you even if you aren't just trying to smash, sorry. we deserve better than a drunken manwhore.
>>10209316^ that was 4 u
>>10209319>mfw anyone on /cgl/ thinks they're a "good girl"
>>10209370how is being on /cgl/ at all similar to being a drunk, druggie, or whore tho
>>10209319>>10209322a manwhore break your heart?
>>10209397ew no. i only date ultra conservative asians lol
>>10209375It's not, but none of the girls on here are anywhere close to being good girls from all the shit I've read
What character do I cosplay if I have abs and muscles that will make me some girl's con crush?
>>10159900Youmacon is usually packed with cuties, and it keeps getting more popular, which means even more cuties.
>>10209449Flavor of the month, look at what costhots are cosplaying and find a character that matches up
>>10156223Just offer to blow him or jerk him off. He will remember you.
>>10183670>>10183673actual closet gay cuck
>>10207658Handholding is fucking disgusting
>>10183673Neat, sounds like a fun experience.
>>10155248used to have a con crush on an ace attorney cosplayer because they were cool and I wanted to be pretty like her, but i looked like a weird dude.now im a hot girl and have a bf, and she is kinda disappeared from the cosplay radar. but i still suck at cosplay though.
>>10207658How about you use your mouth to suck my dick? Because you sound like a huge faggot.
>>10191022I'm actually good friends with him and I can confidently say >>10206817 is spot on.
>>10183670>I was in a committed long term (poly) relationship with my now fianceeIf this isn't bait you're a degenerate cuck.
>>10210266>but i looked like a weird dude>now im a hot girl
Has anyone ever tried speed dating at a convention? I know a few places do it.
My con crush said I was too short for her, then she went on to talk shit about me and short men in general.I was 5'7", she was 5'0". Oh well.
The way people talk about interacting with and coming across crushes in completely mundane situations, then realizing that I've never been spoken to while out and about has opened my eyes.I'm ugly as fuck. Feels bad, man.
>>10210987Are you male or female? It's not typical for men to get approached by women first.
>>10210996Yeah, male. You'd figure that it being a numbers game that'd it happen at least once, but I'm in my mid-20s now. Not even lonely, but fuck me if it isn't a blow to my ego.
>>10157340I haven't seen such crafted skil in a long time
>>10211006That's normal then. Most guys will never get approached first, including a lot of attractive guys. It doesn't mean you're ugly.
>>10182299As long as I get to watch.
>>10155484hmmmI did git groped by like 3 different people in the last local cosplayer meetingreally makes you think.
>>10155528what niche shit, anon?
How the hell do you develop a crush on someone at an event that only happens once a year and only lasts for a few days?
>>10206817>>10210295Aw, shucks... Well at least that 30 second interaction was nice...
>>10155248I saw a sad looking girl siting alone on a bench watching storm clouds.I pretended to be watching them too but I was creepily glaring at her. She was cute.She then moved behind a pillar to lay down.I felt really bad like I made her uncomfortable so I left then talked to my friend on the phone about it, he said to just leave it but I went back and apologized to her.Turns out she didn't notice and was trying to sleep then we started talking and she taught me how to make origami cranes.We're friends now and I'm trying not to be a creepy mess at cons anymore:0)
>>10211217Crushes form pretty quickly
>>10211217Step 1: Be a virgin.Step 2: Rarely experience social interactions with members of the opposite sex.Step 3: Look forward to a day for months, planning intricate costumes and spamming /cgl/ with shit like “Are cons a good place to find a gf?” “What type of men do women like?”Step 4: Attend con. Meet another nerd in a social environment where socialization is encouraged. See that they don’t recoil from you.Step 5 (optional): Actually escalate to something physical. You’re a nerd virgin who doesn’t party so this is a rarity that you will cherish and brag about for months, rather than forgetting about it a week later like most normies.
>>10211320okay but what about women
>>10211217If they're attractive, we crush on them. Simple.
Thirsty fir a really minor e-celeb. She doesn't really want to be cosfamous and doesn't seem to be too interested in relationships. Has quasi-retired.
>>10156090What the fuck is a cosplay raid? Is that like the Boston Tea Party?
>>10211488>thinking women can't be unattractive fat introvert virginsPeople literally complain about the weird fat women at cons all the time, where have you been?
>>10211702Sounds more like a panty raid but you steal cosplays instead of underwear.
Male here, first anime overload at shit convention center in austin texas almost 10 years ago. Fine as fuck reno cosplayer. So nervous to even talk to him. Dude kept staring at my dress so maybe I shoulda went for it.
I'll try to make this short.- My first con.- Fanime 2009- See a girl yelling, "Im on a boat" in the convention lobby.- Laugh and think to myself: Wow, I'd like to meet her.- Later get introduced to her by some random .hack cat girl that I befriended.- She's a 5 ft, white girl with brunette hair, wearing a red kimono.- The 3 of us wander around the gaming hall.- We decide to split up but exchange numbers.- I've forgotten her name so I hand her my phone and ask her to spell it.- Asks my last name, so say it once.- She repeats it back with decent pronunciation and proceeds to spell it correctly. (Super wierd since its a Japanese name with like 10 letters)- Grab tacos an hour later, bring my friend and his gf along, but he leaves because the girl I like is too loud.- Later see girl with 4+ guy orbiters.- Stop to chat. She and 5 sailor scouts introduce me to caramelldansen.- Am confused and ask if thats the whole dance.- Laugh and take a video anyways.- Few hours pass and I miss the ride back with my friend because we are staying at his gf's house.- Oops.jpg- Text him its np, I'll figure out something.- Girl asks where I'm staying.- Laugh and tell her I'll sleep under the tables since I missed my ride.- She says her room is pretty full, but I can stay if I give her $20.- Agree and find out she has a King bed at the Fairmont.- There are 3 girls and 5 other guys +me.- Worry that the other guys seem to be into her, but she confirms she isn't dating anyone.- We try to sleep in the bed sideways to fit 7 people.- Girl has to leave room at 1 am, because she is chatting too much and the other people who paid her money want to sleep.
- I offer to head out with her.- Two other orbiters and 1 girl chime in to leave as well.- Wait through 30 minutes of conversation in the lobby of the Fairmont tower.- Ask her to take the elevator with me.- She agrees and we go to the top floor.- I tell her: "You are amazing and it would be cool if we dated."- Adding quickly, "I'd understand if you'd prefer to keep the entourage of boys pursuing you, but if so I'll have to take my leave. I think we can be good friends, so either answer is great to me. :D"- She agrees tentatively, but with conditions.- "Before we date, we should go on a date first. If that goes well, I'll say yes."- Fast forward 2 days- We are dating.- The other guys in the room congratulate me.- One shakes my hand.- Another declares "The best man won."- A third guy sulks, but later hands me a chocolate bar and asks me to give it to my GF. (Apparently, they attend College together)- He leaves and I throw it in the trash.- Fast forward 10 years- We have 2 young kids.- My wife had a bad AX with the earthquake and other things not going well.- She's sleeping soundly, but I thought typing this would cheer her up a little. (I don't frequent here, but she does and I hope she will read it)- Thanks for giving me this chance CGL!TLDR: You can crush on someone and if they happen to be into you maybe it can work out. I don't suggest the methods I used, they probably won't be successful in the current day and age.
>>10214413wow, so the weeaboo in the kimono actually managed to snag a genuine japanese guy? that's pretty impressive. i feel like most japanese men would be way turned off by weebs.
>>10214445We actually didn't talk about Anime until about 3 weeks afterward. I guess she hid her power level really well.
>>10214413This is so cute anon
>>10155386I met a girl at Katsu and it was pretty good for a few years. I wasn't mature enough back then so I missed out on her. Still miss her. Was pretty cool because we stayed in the same room.
>>10155852My current s/o and I were kind of like this, so it's nice to see that others had luck too! He also felt like he was settling for being alone forever before me too. On topic, I still have con crushes, mostly on girls though. Current s/o is a dude but is well aware I'm primarily into women so he never minds it!
>>10155248>see only one esdeath cosplayer at AX this yearShe did look amazing, too bad I'm an autist and can't talk to people so I were just that creep that whispered "woah esdeath" to myself before disappearing into the crowd never to see her againIt was a good outfit and my only crush this entire expo
>>10214413This is so sweet, I want a love story like that
Are we able to get a refund for part of the badge cost?I bought a weekend badge and because if the lines, it was close to 2pm ok Saturday before I could get my badgeFeels like kopf fucked me over for a day when I couldn't do anything. I had to miss my friends panel Friday night too which fucking blows.
>>10216685Fuck it is
How do I get a girlfriend who's exactly like me but female
>>10216727I hope it's a bait but in case it is not, the simple answer is you can't, and even if you do the simple fact that you are asking this question makes me think that this relashionship will probably fail.
>>10216727You don't want the girl version of you because you are such an intolerable person that you wouldn't get within 5 feet of a girl version of you
>>10169946>5'5"You're a delusional manlet.
>>10214413>"Before we date, we should go on a date first."
