Fairly looking guy comes to you at the con. What does he need to do to succeeded. What things will make him fail. Be honest.

Going to a con was your first mistake. And how good-looking can you be if you’re asking 4ch for advice?

I go to cons to buy merchandise. I just want to know how people would react.

Do you hate cons? I only go to Comic ones since Anime ones are to far they charge to much.

Height is the most important thing
Also dont be fat

>>10669765
As a dude I'll tell you a thing that'll make you fail. Holding here close to you (this is fine) and sniffing her hair profusely. She panicked out after that, she was quiet mellow before that.
Not at a con or cosplay related, but still.

In all honesty i doubt i would entertain a guy if they approached me at a con. Perhaps if he showed interest in a series i like. I'd say if the girl is cosplaying a character then casually talking about it might work better than directly showing interest only on her looks.

This is true for most any situation nowadays.

But it doesn't explain why I ever got girlfriends.

>Be Me
>out of shape but not obese
>admittedly not ugly so kind of cheating
>Only 5'6
>Awful teeth
>Cosplayer

I organized cosplay gatherings, had fun, and women approached me. And all I did was talk nerd with them about the same stuff we both like.

>>10669765
I am not a girl, but my advice to you is go to conventions with the intent to actually have a fun time. The women will find YOU, even if you don't want them to.
>>
>>10669765
>>10669765
Approached a girl during an event years ago. We became friends and still are up to now. Depending on what you're after would be determine the outcome. If you approach them looking for a partner, then I don't think that would happen. They came there to have fun and meet their convention friends, lovely if they meet someone new yes, but looking to settle down with someone is not the intention.
>>
Not stand between me and the rest of the hall/room if I’m sitting in a corner or in a chair. Not ask me for overly personal information (exact details of where I live, what I do). Not prattle on about himself for five minutes at a go. Not continue the conversation if I’m giving him one word answers/not making eye contact.

Best advice so far. Learn to pick up on social cues if a woman's not interested or fuck off. Even worse when the girl shrugs you off and you whine that you're just trying to "strike a friendly conversation, bro". Some guys walk up to me wanting to know every single detail about my life and every single social media I'm in, it's weird as hell and why these dudes get given fake phone numbers and insta handles.
>>
>>10669802
>Learn to pick up on social cues if a woman's not interested or fuck off.
Also: if a woman is in a heavy cosplay, something with a corset, something with six inch heels, heavy props, long skirts, whatever, she’s tired and her feet hurt. She will not want to hang out with you or talk for a while then. If you talk, keep it short, let her volunteer her contact info, then reach out to her there and ask if she’d like to get a drink or a bite later when she’s in casual clothes or at the rave/night events.

He doesn't have to say much of anything to get some action 50% of the time.
The other 50% it's probably some tranny, dyke or femcel that will screech at him

>What does he need to do to succeeded. What things will make him fail.
In what, buying merch? Seeing the panel he wants? Getting good prices? Oh, right. You want to get your dick wet because that's all these guys here seem to care about here. Why do that at a con? Your best bet is to just make friends like a normal person.
>>10669781
If a girl is more concerned about height than anything else, don't bother with her. She's like a guy that only cares about tit size.
>>
Shower, wear deodorant, and just go there to have fun and you'll meet people naturally.
Also don't corner disney princess cosplayers and wheeze at them how whatever princess they're cosplaying has always been your FAAAAVORIIIIIITTTTEEEE.
>>
>>10670455
I'm not the anon you're responding to, but >>10669808
is right. Unless you want to have an actual conversation about topics you and chick enjoys and not just trying to get into any girl's pants, don't bother people trying to enjoy themselves. They've probably already had enough guys trying to do the same thing for their lives and you'd just be another drop in the bucket. If you want to sleep around like a slut go to a bar or some shit.

shitty grammar aside, how do you measure "succeed"? if the person has an interest in my character/my cosplay's craftsmanship i'd be down to shoot the shit with the person for a while about the lore/craftsmanship techniques. If you go to a con with the sole interest of picking up chicks, you will fail instantly; everyone has their anti-creep radar up on maxx because of how many normies think they can rock a Spirit Halloween Goku and think they can score. It's very very obvious when someone isn't a real fan and is trying to make the most baseline conversation.

>>10671436
oh never mind, if you think there's a way to continue after "they don't want to talk to you", you have no chance.
>>
To succeed with me, and I doubt you would want to and I know anons will take everything out of context because "oh no, impossible standards"
-Be single.
-Bathe regularly and take care of your hair and skin
-Don't dress like a homeless person unless it's cosplay.
-Don't be fat and unhealthy. Chubby you can get away with but I want someone that can keep up with me in physical activities and not stop and wheeze every 5 minutes.
-Have similar taste in anime and manga as me. You don't have to like everything I like but enough to where we both can hold conversations about titles and can discuss and share new ones.
-Similar libido. This is more for your sake because I'm not that sexually active a person and don't want a dick bigger than 6 inches either.
>Fails
-Aggressive personality. If you're the type that gets angry easily and punches holes through walls, I want nothing to do with you. This also means the type of guys that are quick to start fights with others and get overly defensive.
-Attention whore. If you're the type that likes to act out for attention, from yelling things at people or saying offensive things for a reaction to people to climbing a statue or running around like an idiot, causing a ruckus, etc. I want nothing to do with you
-Self destructive. It's one thing if you have clinical depression and you are actively working on it but if you're the type of guy that is an uwu sadboy that wants me to be his emotional dump but won't do the same for me. This is a habit a lot of 4chan men have that I've come across as friends.
-Self absorbed. I admire someone that has confidence in themselves. I don't admire someone that's full of themselves.
-Porn addiction. A wank or two is fine but addiction to porn/hentai has warped the minds of many men.

And this is how to "succeed" with me but I'm not looking.

Some but only at a basic bitch level. I still need to watch King of Braves GGG but my realm of mech is 08th MS Team, Code Geass, TTGL, Diebuster/Gunbuster and Eva so I'm more into the characters rather than the robots themselves. From a previous thread discussion on /cgl/ a few months back there's a femanon here that's into Gunpla so she and other women like her may be more up your alley on that.
>>
>>10671515
Most of that seems fine except the parts that involve sex. That's nothing something you approach someone with and realistically I would have no way of knowing.

>>10671468
>"Do not engage in human courtship for the purposes of fostering a relationship! Assume all women are as unavailable as I am!"
Possibly the worst advice I've heard. Hitting on women is how you begin a relationship, you simply stop advances when she mentions she is not interested. You don't have to meet via dating app only, stupid.

I'm willing to take it as long as you're willing to do the leg work and read Getter Robo or listen to my passionate rantings on specific subjects.

>>10671532

Of course but OP asked that I'd be honest so I was and sex is a big deal to a lot of people but not me.
>>10671533
>passionate rantings on specific subjects.
This is a big plus for me. Seeing someone actually care about and get animated about things they're into and love is great. I've listened to a friend's theories on schizophrenia to another explaining how there's a secret government alien base underneath our town. That last one is obviously bullshit but it was so fun to hear what he had to say. Too many times normal guys have this "Whatever. Yea sure. That's cool." bland like attitude to subjects they claim to like makes talking with them boring. I may not understand something you're talking about but if you're willing to answer questions I have about it or explain something I don't know without looking down on me, then it's all good. You have to be ready for my own rants or favorite things too.
>Getter Robo
Of course, as long as you are up for reading some korean otome I'm currently into. Higurashi is another series I'd like to share if you haven't read/watched it already, as well as Kaiji, Bokurano, Satoshi Kon works, Saikano, Narutaru, and some trash here and there. I keep an open mind and try to give everything a chance. I enjoy fun arguments as well. The type where we are both smiling but still lightly fighting about what's good and what isn't about a series or subject. I am a fujo but I won't push those type of series if you don't want to read/watch them.

Just so you know this discussion we're having right now is just for fun and friendly. I have no intention of dating/being in a relationship as I like to keep to myself and enjoy solitude but I hope this talk gives some insight on how to talk to women because I'm definitely not the only one that thinks like this and I'm sure there are others that would align more with your tastes.
>>
>>10671561
>Disclaimer.

A mock battle is still a mock battle. Yeah no, I actually like Ikemen quite a bit myself. From a design stand point they're interesting cosplay challenges, especially if you're a prop maker. What you're referring to is con normies, or folk who really just dress up but have no actual soul or input into what the fuck they're doing. I still have to spell this out from time and time again, but there is a rift in the con scene when it comes to that.

Oh nice. This tells me that you're more likely to keep up a good appearance yourself since you can appreciate the male form. It's a shame that some men often find the male form ugly, you can still look at a person and see that they're attractive without wanting to fuck them and hopefully apply to yourself what they are doing. The trend in men going back to taking care of their hair, skin and body is very much welcomed as a straight woman. It tells me you know how to take care of yourself and I won't have to do it for you.
>What you're referring to is con normies, or folk who really just dress up but have no actual soul or input into what the fuck they're doing.
My bad, I was actually speaking about guys in general that I've spoken with but I can see that as well with con people. I usually don't talk to them for very long at cons so I can't give much of an opinion on them so my experience is in forced social environments like work, house parties and bars that I am sometimes dragged to.

But on the subject of passionate guys, it can be a bad thing in a certain way. Funny story, at a ren fest bonfire some dude came up to me and commented I was pretty. Said thank you and I wanted to move on but he followed and continued to talk. I decided to hear him out as not to be rude and he started to compare me to the beauty of the night sky, something about my eyes sparkling and asking what he could do to spend a night with me. I said no thank you but the dude was persistent. This guy only knows my name, we've had no other conversation other than him trying to "woo" me, and I wanted to go back to my tent. This is not the kind of "passion" I'm into and I know for sure my eyes do not sparkle and he could barely see my black ass in the dark.

Eh, I guess? I just use Dove Moisterizing soap, wash my face on the daily because I hate out breaks, use conditioner because I have wavy hair and use lotion because I hate dry skin in humid climates.

>Some men find the male form ugly.

Blame that stereotype on Instagram / Tiktok 'pro lifters' who use roids and claim to be natty. That stereotype originated from the 80's however but the point still remains. Actual body dysmorphia exists among men who lift which is why a bit of us are a bit self conscious about it than we would admit.

>My bad, I was actually speaking about guys in general that I've spoken with but I can see that as well with con people.

Oh I'm pretty sure you've had shit experiences with men. That's kind of common in the normie nerd experience. A lot of men and women in those scenes have not grown past the age of 17 and it shows in the relationships. Like I was talking to a dude this weekend while I was at the mall and he went on about how he was in a polyamorous relationship with two women, and I just went "I'm so sorry you have to play father figure to two brats." we both had a chuckle.

>That last bit.
0 to 100 fast. My idea of passionate revolves around mecha and anime, not on speed running outdoor sex.
>>
>>10671515
Impossible standards? I guess for some these will be impossible, but half of this is the bare minimum effort anyone wanting to be in a relationship should put into themselves, another half is just avoiding obvious red flag trainwrecks. If anything these standards are low
>>
>>10671592
>Using soap on face
This is a sin but if it works for you that's fine. I won't go into skincare autism unless you ask for it. (But wear sunscreen) As for hair as long as it's neatly done, that's fine but styling it according can bump your attractiveness and confidence levels. Interesting video but of course, like he says, do whatever you like. Wavy hair a cute.

>Blame that stereotype on Instagram / Tiktok
From the trend I've been seeing, those social media pages are all about the fuckboys/posh boys unless you're including this body type as well in lifting. I see heavy lifters on my Instagram regularly but only because I actively follow fitness blogs too but outside of of that it's photoshop pretty boys and skincare ads for men alongside women. I agree the natty thing when it isn't is a problem, setting up false expectations for people.
>Actual body dysmorphia exists among men who lift which is why a bit of us are a bit self conscious about it than we would admit.
Yea, and it's a shame. I heard it's really bad in teen boys who take steroids and such. Even on /fit/ there are unhealthy pushes for these things but I see arguments there as well. There def should be more of a push against this kind of thing.
>Mall story
Yeesh. If they can pull it off, power to them but the whole poly thing doesn't actually work for a lot of people and they sometimes realize it too late.
>Passion around hobbies
As it should!
>>10671593
I was being a bit cheeky because anons will say women have impossible standards when really alot of all of are asking for is to be clean, not be a dick and be able to take care of yourself. Some people have more standards such as more details on height, income, politics and beliefs and those are fine too, I'm only speaking for myself.

They're not exactly wrong about impossible standards, but that's probably because most anons judge the tinder woman crowd as a norm, most women on there have it on easy mode and they have ridiculous standards since they can get away with it. Yeah there's also a lot of women who aren't like that but they probably don't use tinder in the first place.

>>10671647
>Since this is a woman writing this, most of these rules go out the window if you're a chad.
I don't know and I don't care if that would be the case but I find this comment funny since most of her "rules" would be already applicable to a chad. Or is your image of a chad a fat smelly, homeless-hobo looking hornyass with 15 inch dick with an aggressive self-absorbed attention whore personality + porn addiction on top? I suppose I just described a typical NTR ugly bastard, yeah those guys are absolute chads
>>
>>10671647
My own "chad" exists in those standards. Seriously though, I don't care how attractive you are or how much money you make, if you have those fails, you're not worth the stress in my eyes. If you treat me, yourself and other people like shit I don't want you and if you don't want me then it's perfect.
>>10671648
I don't. I understand why someone would and that's fine but it's never really been something I cared about and I didn't even know it was a thing to care about until my young adult years I moved to a bigger city. I feel like it's one of those things where it's desired but not needed but if you happen to run into a person that does only care about things you can't control, best just to shrug and move on, other people exist.
>>10671656
>Yeah there's also a lot of women who aren't like that but they probably don't use tinder in the first place.
Pretty much this. Never used Tinder or any dating service/app and I don't plan to so my own opinions aren't exactly seen to guys who use it and I'm not the only one either.

I’m alright with learning some skin care autism. I just use clearasil for the most part and it’s done it’s job just fine but I’m always down for learning some new tips. Although from how you described yourself, I’m curious on if you were on CGL G+ awhile back, if that’s the case I may know you anyways.
>>
>>10671689
>I’m alright with learning some skin care autism.
I just noticed we don't have a skincare/makeup thread up else I would have posted this there.
First determine what type of skin you have. Dry, oily, T-zone, etc. There's plenty sources online to help figure it out if you're unsure. Knowing this will help you know what products would be best and worse for your face. Like you don't want something that can dry out your skin if you already have dry skin. But your basic routine would be
-Cleanser: Clean your face with this instead of soap. Soap tends to be too harsh for face-skin that dries it out. The fragrance doesn't help either.
-Moisturizer - Putting moisture back into your skin. Basically face lotion.
-Sunblock - Protect your skin from aging fast. The sun is a huge contributor to gaining wrinkles and sunspots so protect it.
Anything else would be catered to whatever you want to fix specifically. If you have dark spots you want to get rid of, Vit C. You want to look for L ascorbic acid and not just something that says it contains orange/lemon juice. If you are older and trying to starve off wrinkles then you want to look into a retnoid. If you have dry skin, Hyaluronic acid will help with that. If you have acne you wanna go for salicylic acid. Chemical exfoliating is better than using a physical exfoliant (scrubs, towels, picking at your face).
-Avoid alcohol in products.
-If it burns, don't continue the product. Tingle is fine but burning is a no.
-It takes at least two weeks to a month of use to start seeing results of any product.
-The Ordinary is a good and cheap place to buy quality skincare shit and explains how to use each product.
-You don't need a 10 step routine that was meme'd years ago.
That's all I can think of at the moment.
>I’m curious on if you were on CGL G+

Hm, I think I can get a decent foothold from there. Thanks anon. Yeah, I’d say back when I was about a teenager there was this really cute black anon who I used to talk to on a regular. Actually bought me vidya but i didn’t keep in contact with her because I was a shitter and didn’t know any better.

Figured if you were theoretically her I could at least pay you back for the deed now that I am able to, and the least I could’ve done was take her out to dinner circumstances willing. Oh well, that’s in the past but I appreciate the advice.

please stop lying. only on the internet are able to say stuff like this with no way for anyone to backcheck it. We know exactly what you want to fuck, and you do care about attraction. Youre on fucking cgl, the place where attraction is part of the hobby.

This is excessive. Literally just wash your face with some random cleanser from the store. If it doesn't work, try something else. If your face starts peeling or feeling dry, try something else or get some moisturizer.

Not being super skinny or super fat is also important, unless the girl doesn't mind in which case I guess it doesn't matter. Most people do though, so better to cast the net wide.

Don't be pathetic. Don't be annoying, don't talk too much about your own things so she can't get a word in edgewise, DONT BITCH ABOUT OTHER WOMEN OR DATING!!

Also this last one is literally the most important, shut up I dont' care what your opinions are on this matter, I am 100% right and you know it:

IF YOU DONT LIKE HER DONT PURSUE HER. YOU DESERVE SOMEONE THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY NOT JUST SOMEONE THAT IS WILLING TO DATE YOU. BEWARE OF RED FLAGS, JUST BECAUSE YOURE A LONELY LOSER VIRGIN DOESNT MEAN YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE FIRST ONE THAT WILL HAVE YOU

Aw, that sounds cute but I apologize it's not me. No problem on the advice, when another skincare/makeup thread pops up, you could lurk it for more details and others reviewing products. I think there's a thread on /fit/ and /fa/ too.

Alright, partial other side of the coin, how do you talk to people at cons without feeling intrusive? Like I want to meet people as I've been looking for friends with strong similar interests recently, but I'm a total social sperg when I talk to random people (unless I'm inebriated). I'll be going to a con soon with friends, so that should help me out, but if I'm in public/at events I feel like I'm interrupting their time/experience. I'm sure most people are open to friendly conversation on shared enjoyed subject matter, so I just need to chill and not sperg...

>>10671756
I literally just go up and talk to people. If they feel intimidated by someone being friendly at a social event than that is literally on them. But even the cutest of cosplayers have been super okay with folks as long as you lead with a compliment, a picture and then bridge it to like the series they like and something else. Even more so if you go to a photoshoot, I’ve made a fuck ton of friends with clone cosplayers who were doing the same shit I have. Only real problem I get are occasionally from female cosplayers who hate that I complimented them.. that like the best way I can explain it. I complimented them wrong and they hold a grudge over it, it’s like the dumbest shit in the world.

literally talk to people with similar interests and make polite conversation for a while about common interests. If things are going well, offer to take it to dinner/lunch/a panel. If you're having good conversation for more than a half hour then ask for contact info.
at any point if you get rejected don't throw a tantrum

>>
>>10671810
sf, sorry, but im seriously trying to help you pathetic losers here and I have 1 more bit of insight:

People find it so grotesquely obvious when someone is looking for "poon" and/ or is so desperate that literally anything will do. It's not flattering, it's a huge red flag and turn-off. I know many lonely virgins who end up attracting women because even though they're lonely and virginal, they would rather be alone than with someone who will "do" and focus on their own selves and their own life instead of pining around all the time wondering if this millionth random girl I happened to meet eyes with in this con, maybe this girl will finally be the one, damn she has such a nice ass, if only I were Chad I'd be able to rip her cheap aliexpress Tracer cosplay off and fuck her *gasp gasp*.

Like seriously hold yourself to higher standards and people will notice. Like actually take your own desires into account when considering whether to talk to someone-- and I don't mean "cute asian cosplayer waifu" standards I mean like actual standards. See women as people and think about whether you like an individual as a person and she will feel respected and, if it works out then things will fall naturally into place.

And also don't be a little beta bitch and actually fucking talk to people. Maybe not "go up to random girl and tell her she's hot" kind of talk, but if you're in line waiting for something and something weird happens, like, just be a normal fucking person for fuck's sake wtf is wrong with you nerds

I skimmed the thread and saw a lot of bullshit but here's a protip from a lurking male:

-/cgl/ is populated mainly by women. Asking a woman how to get their attention romantically is like asking a fish how to convince it to bite the hook on your fishing rod.

I get why other people might see cons as an opportunity to socialize with new people and no hate to them for it, but I'm not a partier or good with most strangers, and am more introverted so I'm just not really into looking to meet new people actively in a con setting. If I happen to end up making conversation and connecting connecting someone cool but that is the last thing on my mind; I'm more about just having a fun time with my existing group.

>>10671960

>it doesn’t help my perception of con people in general.

To be blunt, some of the funnest people I’ve met were old /cgl/ tripfags but the absolute worst people I’ve interacted with in the con scene were Facebook cosfamous people who thought the number of likes they had on their page meant they could treat absolute strangers like pieces of shit. Anyways, my point is there’s something genuine about being bat shit with an anonymous tag attached to it instead of having to do some weird amount of kayfabe due to having to protect your “brand” which is why things seem a bit more unhinged than they really are.

Or 'what did you get out of *blank*?' It's done and I think you are cringey and fucking inept.

Who can't read a room well enough to know to NOT prattle on uninterrupted for a half hour on end to someone who keeps turning their back to you? I can't imagine being that socially stupid. I can't even comprehend it. And then to lack the meter so much you ask 'are you listening?' God.

As a 30+ year old guy, let me give some of the younger guys on this board advice. This board is mostly fat women, especially fat women that are less then 25 years old and never did anything more then make out with a guy at best. I know this because years ago I've met a ton of you at cons at /cgl/ meetups. The board demographic doesn't change that much.

For the men, these fat women don't understand what they want, women in general don't actually understand what they want. These same fat women are your stereotypical "tumblr feminist" if you will. Typically man hating because no worthwhile men would give them the time of day, and no worthwhile man would give them the time of day for the same reason women don't give YOU the time of dat, you're fat and unattractive. As a man your role in life is to guide them, lead them, be strong for them. For men, you MUST be attractive. The criteria for men to be attractive is not be fat, over 5'8, dress and smell nice. That is it really. Even some of these fat women can attract desperate enough men sometimes.

My advice if you're at a con trying to lose your virginity and you're not that attractive, you just need to shoot in your own league. Find a nice fat girl, befriend her, spend the con day with her kinda like a little con date. And maybe later in the night take her out for drinks and just ask her about coming back up to your hotel room to hang out. If she says yes to that, unless she is the most oblivious women on earth, she will know whats going to go down. If you get her back up to the hotel room, you can even clarify with her and just be honest and say "look, I don't have much experience with women and it seems like we might get a bit physical, etc". That line has worked for me 3 times at cons. They usually appreciate the honesty.

I think there's far more anachans on this board than fatties (they're all on facebook bawwing about AP not making 4XL) but your actual con date advice is pretty helpful.

I thought it would be great to finally have someone that enjoyed the same things I did and would get my type of humor. After making friends with several of them and even meeting some irl, I've come to find that they want a mother figure to fuck, could not take care of themselves, went tranny, or leaning into questionable views of people who would turn into full on /pol/tards that join the military. Or furries. Or lolicon. I learned to be very critical and suspicious of men thanks to this site and it helped me dodge bullets and pick up queues in normal men too.
>>
>>10672978
>>10672991


Lady I work a 9-5 and have enough energy to just browse the internet and play video games. A cosplay wife / EGL wife is just there so I have someone who can remotely take care of themselves but from your description, you sound like you went bitter over a few bad dates which is a gigantic red flag on itself. No self respecting man wants to date a woman who naturally hates men for simply being a man, let alone having Neo feminist views. It would be -nice- to have a wife who dresses up as my waifu or will cosplay with me at conventions but it’s not worth the amount of political garbage and built in hate you would give me for just existing.

Like I could just go get a normie girl to dress up as my waifu and support her by learning make up with her in that case. Long route? For sure, but anything to avoid post 2016 talking points in general, holy shit,
>>
>>10672999
>you sound like you went bitter over a few bad dates which is a gigantic red flag on itself
They weren't dates, they were meetups and being in the same social groups online. I went bitter over 4chan men and it taught me how to be critical of normals ones. How is learning how to pick up bad queues in a person a negative thing?
>hates men for simply being a man
So the things I mentioned, being a lolicon, furry, /pol/tard, wanting a mother in their lover, and so on, is "just being a man"? Are you sure that's what you are saying or are you jumping to a conclusion because negative things were said about men?
>but it’s not worth the amount of political garbage and built in hate you would give me for just existing.
Exactly. That's the same point I reached about 4chan men. Look at this site and this board and you'll quickly see how much political hate there is toward women just existing. Why is it okay for you to feel that way but not me?
>>
>>10673001
>why is it okay for you to feel that way instead of me?

Because you are assuming a lot about me you entitled bitch. You lurked, you never interacted. I interacted with women from cgl over the ages I have been on and off on here. Some experiences I’ve had were really good, and some experiences I’ve had were generally really shit. But I never developed a “all women are terrible” complex as you are clearly implying, but rather a “well, here’s shit to look out for.” because all in all, I like to give the people I’m interested in, the benefit of the doubt. Should they have skeletons in the closet, that is a bridge I’ll cross when I get to it. That’s compromise that’s shit that every couple needs to work on, instead of one person bending their back completely for the other, which is why so many toxic cosplay relationships exist off of physical value instead of emotional and mental as well.

>Furries, lolicon, /pol/, talking point.
You must be new because Furries are universally hated if not bullied half the time in general. /pol/ is a product of social atomization and partially social whiplash by how absolute shit everything LEADING up to 2016 and now current era shit is, and loli has been a meme on the internet since the beginning of time. It’s your job to discern if the person you’re talking to is a pedophile or not, not the internet. Kind of a no brainer that everyone has a weird fetish anyways. Hell, I like mating presses and zettai ryouiki for example.

Oh also it just hit me but skincare-chan is that you? Your dissecting style gave it away darling.

>Because you are assuming a lot about me you entitled bitch.
I will never meet you so you're fine and even if I did, you'd still be fine. Look at your fellow men who cause people like me to make these judgements. Hold each other accountable like I hold other women accountable.
>You lurked, you never interacted
I see you just ignored what I said about meeting people. That's a flag right there that tells me you don't listen.
>I never developed a “all women are terrible” complex as you are clearly implying, but rather a “well, here’s shit to look out for.”
When did I say all men were terrible? You do realize that I have been speaking about 4chan men specifically, right? If this doesn't apply to you, why get offended? Again, look to your brother who is acting up and making "you" look bad.
>Furries
Actually furries have calmed down in recent years compared to early 2000s but still, I do not want to be with one. Why is that bad?
>Lolicon
Loli used to be a meme, hell it used to be that if you were a lolicon, you were NOT to sexualize her, but be a father figure. But now you have an ongoing loli vs moralfag war in /tg/, /co/ anons arguing that 12 year olds can consent, and others saying "well, it's the natural order for men to want younger girls so it's natural to want cunny." and this is just the blueboards.
>/pol/
Again, see my furry point. I don't want to be with one.
>Hell, I like mating presses and zettai ryouiki for example.
And I like creampies and impreg. Those are all fine.
>It’s your job to discern if the person you’re talking to is a pedophile or not, not the internet.
What do you think I'm doing? Be around here long enough and you pick up patterns. These are guys I've met from this site and have determined that I no longer want a guy from 4chan.
>Oh also it just hit me but skincare-chan is that you? Your dissecting style gave it away darling.
Of course it's me, why would I hide?

lmao same issue actually
i'm not conservative (politically) enough around actual /pol/acks, but I'm liberal enough to want to be friends with LGBTQ folk (as well as certain political stances, as well as being OK with the vaxx for example), but not liberal enough to want to continue to spend time around people that clearly hate me.

It's very much "become some sort of radical"
>>
>>10673562
I mean I’ll probably make fun of you for getting the jab but I’m not going to go ape shit over it. Very much a “keep in your lane, keep in mine” type of dude. The issue is; a majority of people, can’t fucking keep it in their pants that politics is not what I want to hear. I kind of get why people talk about politics so much, it gives them this false personality of seeming like they’re smarter than they really are, and like that’s fine and all. But when it comes to specifically cosplay, I would rather fucking talk about whatever series you like or I like, or in the rare chance you’re an aspiring hobbyist, fucking shop. Holy fuck I love talking cosplay shop because of the amount of soul that you can just feel from like real craftsmen.

1: Be in a group already. Women will be more receptive if you are with someone else, generally they feel more comfortable when other people have accepted you.

2: If you are solo, I think you do have to be in cosplay. Doesn't have to be great but it shows that you are part of the event.

3 If you're cosplaying the same series, that's where you can really make some headway. You'll be off to a good start and they'll be more open to whatever game you're spitting.

Both of my con hookups were from girls cosplaying the same series as me.

4: If you're not gonna cosplay or be in a group, I'd say go to the rave/dance, girls are easier easier there.

Considering we're meeting at an anime convention I'd consider it acceptable and maybe even encouraged to ham up the romance. Be the anime boy of my dreams and you just might get a hentai in return.

I've never fucked anybody at a con though, because even normie men don't have game.

There's your first problem you have to fix, sounds like a confidence and image issue. Eat well, get enough consistent sleep, exercise and dress well. Learn a musical instrument or another language-- hit some bags. Do something that will instill some self worth and maybe you'll grow a spine. And if you respond to this with any lame excuse you're just ngmi.

>>10683127
I am trying to sleep better, I usually dress very nice for cons. What's an ngmi?
The thing is sometimes when I see a cosplayer I don't have any idea who they are cosplaying even though I am aware of thousands of characters. I even have images for reference even if I don't watch the shows but some of these girls just cosplay some characters I don't know I like how they look. Seriously you don't have idea how many characters I know from video games to manga.
>>
>>10683183
>One. Second.
As in after one girl, looking for a relationship? You do realize how difficult it is to give advice for that right? We don't know what you're like or what the girl you're after is like.
>what's an ngmi
Google is your friend anon
Just ask them who they're cosplaying, what series they're from, etc. Basic stuff, I can't imagine they wouldn't enjoy talking about what they're into at an event about what they're into. Roll with it, listen to them, start asking more personal questions-- why they like the show, how they identify with the character, etc. When it comes to being charming and smooth it's less about the what, and more about the how and why.
>>
>>10683198
I think I look better than most of the guys in the con. I would say the girl is average looking and seems to like what she does. Not just some girl doing cosplay. I usually wear a T-Shirt of whatever I like but perhaps I don't think that's enough to not look like a poser in her eyes since many people just wear T-Shirts like that. At the last con saw some hot looking girls and though what are those girls doing here cause they look liked they didn't belong there, I am afraid I may come off to her like that if I am simply wearing a T-Shirt and don't know her show. And If I cosplay something I like she would probability wont know who I am supposed to be, Anyways I will try something next year when the con comes.

Gonna need some cosplay girls to chime in here then because I don't think you need to worry about coming off as a "poser" I don't think that's terribly important when it comes to hook ups. But I'd also say ditch the t shirt and wear a proper button up or something unless you're /fit/

Past cosplay girl here. Nothing could make me want to date him. In my experience the majority of guys that go to anime cons are greasy neckbeards with more pimples than regular skin. And, even if they look normal, they have some creepy sexism under the hood.

Why are you lying? The reason people get fat is from sitting on their ass all day and eating like shit. Hobbies like vidya, comics, anime and the like don't require physical activity and are usually done solo so there's no incentive to actually bathe and take care of your self. Instead they'll piss in a bottle because it's easier than actually going to the bathroom. "Geek" guys are not mostly handsome, only the small percentage of the ones that actually make an effort to balance working out and their hobbies tend to be. Even then, most of their personalities are shit because they either hate women or too obsessed with them to the point of gross desperation. Both types want a fuckable housekeeper, not a partner.

Hard agree, geek hobbies tend to attract absolute autists that can't handle themselves outside of a hobby and spill spaghetti constantly. This is relating to both guys and girls. If it's not that it's some sort of bullshit like them having some form of mental disability, being a kinnie, acting crazy like a yandere on purpose, etc etc etc. Guys (generally) don't use makeup and have absolutely bottom tier cleanliness, so they get the worse rep, but chicks use so much makeup that they clog up their pores and their faces look absolutely awful without it. Both are usually obese , too.

But I don't and I'm not the only one. That's like me saying all men only care about big tits when I know very well there are men who don't care or are DFC lovers.

What other nice things in life? I work 60 hours a week and all hobbies are just escapism to kill time. Humans are social creatures, it's not normal to be happy completely isolated. That doesn't make you entitled to a gf or anything. If you're an ugly loser, you're an ugly loser, that's all there is to it. No ones obligated to save you from that but it is a little unreasonable to expect people to be perfectly happy living a life like that.
>>
>>10687555
Nta You don't need a girlfriend to be social. Make friends. But with 60 hours a week sounds like you'd barely have time for that so you'd have even less time for a gf. As for other nice things if you're in the u.s. working that many hours you must be getting paid decently and racking up PTO. Go on vacation somewhere for a week. If you don't have these things your job is not worth draining your life. A gf is the least of your problems because you'll be too drained and probably depressed to deal with whatever is happening in her life which would lead to eventual break up. Take advantage of your employment benefits or get another job.

I have never heard of friends (who are not sexually attracted to each other) living together and eventually adopting kids to spend the rest of their life together.

You complained that you lack a social life and think getting a gf will solve it.
>Humans are social creatures, it's not normal to be happy completely isolated.
You don't need a gf to solve your isolation, you need friends and companionship first and doing that eventually leads to possible relationships. Get the hang of that before trying to start a family. If your current life only consists of going to work and only participate in hobbies to kill time getting a girlfriend won't suddenly fix that. Relationships are nice but they also take work and compromise. Kids are great but they are another stress factor you will need to have time and money to raise for the rest of your life. Do you really think that in your current state you're ready to handle that? Because from what you've described, it doesn't sound like it. Get your own shit together first, it will your future much easier.
>>

yes, having a partner to share time with means having a social life
>You don't need a gf to solve your isolation,

>you need friends and companionship first and doing that eventually leads to possible relationships
exactly, the kind of companionship with potential to become a partner
>Relationships are nice but they also take work and compromise
exactly, which is why I don't want to waste my time with relationships that won't get me a life partner

I am well aware everything lasting needs time and dedication (which I am willing to invest the few time I have on) but I just don't see why you are so fixated into trying to convince me that having regular friends with no partner potential is a must in order to enter a love relationship or that I should replace my needs with something lower to half solve the issue

Because your life partner is going to be your friend. You need to know how to have friends and how to be social to even meet a potential wife. If you just skip that step you're in for a world of more mistakes and dissapointments. Had a friend who met a guy in college and married him after two months then divorced him in 10 after living together. She realized she was more his mother than his wife. I've been with my husband for 11 years and we met because we were part of the same friend group. Neither of us had initial intentions of hooking up but after being friends for years it clicked. Another friend of mine was a constant dater, ended up getting one pregnant and it turned out she was insane. Another friend met her husband through a friend group as well. Same thing that happened with me. They were friends first both being part of the group, clicked after a year or two, lived together and got married, living happily.

>I don't want to waste my time with relationships that won't get me a life partner
Sorry but just seems like a creepy thing to say. It's as if your whole life is focused on getting a wife which sounds sad. As if you have no other passions or drives to do anything else or meet anyone else which is going to make potential girls you want to be with sad as well. Well, you do you. Tried to help but if you don't want to listen that's your business.
>>

>>
>>10687762
>As if you have no other passions or drives to do anything else
I do, but for some reason you are still fixated on thinking your way of thinking is the only valid one just because of your experiences. Sure, that's how opinions are made but that doesn't make them universally valid within a topic, even more so when we talk about human emotions and all the chaotic mess that it implies.
>Tried to help but if you don't want to listen that's your business
No you didn't, you tried to impose your approach to the problem which is based on the bitter experiences the people around you had and failed miserably
>>
>>10687770
>bitter experiences the people around you had and failed miserably
Nta but you seem pretty miserable yourself kek maybe trying something beyond feeling sorry for yourself would fix things.
>>
>>10687770
You're the one saying there's no other nice things in life, you work 60 hours a week and only have hobbies as a form of escapism which tells people you have no passions and you're only focus in life is to get married. Unless you completely lied on your first comment. Sounds like you're looking for pity without wanting to make an effort to change yourself. Good day sir.
