Title: Loners? Unite?
Post by: loliconman on May 25, 2016, 12:26:46 PM
Yo. So umm this is kind of a last minute thing, since the con is like 2 days away. Is there "any" loners out there who doesn't want to go to this con alone? This is going to be my first Fanime con, and going alone seems kinda sad. Other meet up topics looks like they already found their peeps, so it's weird trying to butt in when your the new guy.

My main reason going to this con is for getting to know how some cons are like(planning a trip for the Expo). Other than that I mostly plan to walk around trying to find/buy anime goods. I haven't look into the events yet, but I'll plan it out on day one. Planning ahead is too much of a pain.

More about me, I'm 25, male, likes anime, into RPG games(FIRE EMBLEM!), and I'm a bit weird. I plan to pick up my badge and attend the Swap Meet on Thursday. So if any of you loners out there who isn't a bit scared/weird out to meet complete strangers... >.> Who would still like to make new friends or find a traveling companion feel free to reply or PM me. :)

Hi, I wouldn't mind meeting up! I might be meeting up with some people but nothing has been confirmed yet, so I'm still a loner. XD I'll be there on Thursday as well for the same reasons, if you want to hang out then.

I would love to hang out with fellow anime loving fans! I'll probably be there at 2:30 or 3 to pick up my badge and if nothing comes up I'll probably wander around until the Swap Meet event?/thing happens.. What time will you be heading off if you don't mind me asking?

Work is calling and there's stuff that needs to be done. So if there is still anyone out there who wants a traveling companion or atleast someone to talk to like I do... Feel free to rely to this topic or PM me.

I'll be back later tonight like around 11:30PM to check for any relies or PMs. Hopefully >.>

Ive been going to fanime as a loner for the past 3yrs now...it is actually more enjoyable in my opinion.  I would link up with you guys but I have the Old Timer X Loner issue which makes me less reluctant to meet new people

Hi there! I will be going to Fanime alone this year too and it'll also be my first time! I saw your post on Lightningxxx's thread too. I'd love to meet up with more people too. I will be hopefully going all weekend (Friday-Monday) but I'll be traveling/driving abck and forth from where I live (about 40mins away) each day. My schedule is completely open as of now so i'm super felxible on meeting times if you'd like to!

I'm 21, female, into anime (obviously! haha), and not cosplaying for this con.

PM if you'd like to meet up and are interested! Anyone is welcome to PM me for that matter :)

So excited!

Hello Loliconman again! :)

It's Lightningxxx known as Lori from the other forum thread!  It's a yes again for you and I and more people for are alone to hang out together!  :)

A post for loners unite!  Yay!  All the people I read so far are the ones that ask me to hang out with.  I think all of us will hang out together and have fun at Fanime! 

Yay!  Great idea for people like us to unite, Loliconman!  Looking forward to meet everyone.  :)

Hello everyone and good morning! Today is the day for the badge pick up! Hopefully no one forgot that...

So everyone who PM'd me I have already PM'd back(I think..) with my contact info and if I didn't I'm completely sorry I suck at multi tasking.. >.> Just for a heads up I'll be there for the badge pick up and swap meet, so if you feel like meeting up/hanging out before the con starts it's not too late! Hopefully, I'll see some of you there today and if not Friday is the fated day :D

P.S. It's not too late to join in the fun! I'll still be here until 1PM. 8)

I won't be in until early Friday (maybe 8-9AM?). I've contacted people so if I haven't I'll try to PM everyone else and let's plan for something?

I wouldn't mind meeting new people just for small talk. Although I am the silent type. You guys would mind if I joined too?
Title: Re: Loners? Unite?
Post by: loliconman on May 27, 2016, 12:13:34 AM
Sorry I wasn't really here today. I was at the con picking up my badge(THE LINE WAS HORRIBLE!).. but sure why not I made this topic for the sole purpose of uniting all the loners out there who doesn't want to be alone for this con :D

I thought I was the silent type, but I talked way more than I should have >.> so you'll be fine. I actually might leave at 9AM tomorrow to find parking and arrive there at 10AM, so I won't be checking this forum for the con duration.. I'll PM you my contact info if you still wanna meet up though :)

a large group of loners in a crowd.  Ironic ain't it?  Long time attendee here.  This year, this person can't make it, the other can only make it on Sunday between the hours of 3am and 4:57 am (okay, I exaggerate).  Please add me to the list.

"nerd with no life" I think you found the right thread, my friend >.> Can't make any promises about the other peeps, but I think I might be semi part of that category... xD We all have different interest here. I don't have any interest in panty & stocking, but we can still hang out and talk until we find something we have in common XD The world is a big place after all  ;D

Just meeting new people and making new friends I don't think you need a list for that >.> I won't be going to the con on Saturday until 6-6:30PM due to personal reasons, but if anyone wants to PM me. I'll try to PM back with my contact info after I take care of everything. I will be late, but I'LL BE THERE!

All my friends had to bail on me this year, so this is my first year going without anyone. :(
I would love to meet new people if anyone wants to hmu. I'm here the whole weekend and will be cosplaying Hatsune Miku today and Boa Hancock tomorrow.

Count me in on any meet up to make new friends and explore the convention with others. ^^
Would love to get to explore with people and not be a loner while at the convention xD

Myself and another forum user are on our way there if anyone would like to meet up. We're cosplaying as average Joe's lol. Pm me contact info and we can meet up some point today. Also, there is a meet up planned tonight that was posted yesterday. Not sure if it's 21+ or not. But anyone that is of age I believe is welcome.

Hello! Hello! Hello! Loners of 2017...  :-X

So con fun times is in about 6 days from now yo! So last year meet up was pretty decent and I guess this will be round two with new peeps maybe? I noticed there are already some people claiming to be loners this year unfortunately(or not) so if any of you wanted to chill in line con together then you have come to the right place! If you all ain't scared to meet total strangers or make new friends then feel free to post replies and mingle~ We gotta get this thread lively again people!

Side note, I may or may not be alone this year so I will either have a friend/family with me if anyone wanted to meet up with me, and just like last year, I'm still a complete weirdo.  :B
