Speed dating. I'm going to try it out. I know at least 20+ people going to fanime this year, but it never hurts to meet and know even more people!

The answer to the question "Where should the loners start?" is yourself.  Evaluate your conversation skills.  How you say it is more important than what you say.  We're at Fanime.  The topics are easy:  anime, video games, sci-fi, J-POP, games, karaoke, art, cosplay, etc.  Smile and begin in a friendly way =)  Maintain natural eye contact ;)

Your presentation is another factor.  Please present yourself as a clean, well groomed person who takes cares of himself or herself.  No otaku smell.  That's a turn off!

..I was gonna add do a flip or a handstand. But I think you summed everything up pretty good already ;)
(I'll have to remember the maintain neutral eye contact part..I tend to zone out and look at the sky or in the distance~_~)

Honestly though I don't think anyone in this forum is a "Loner". That would mean you prefer to be alone or don't care for the company of others(I used to be that way so I know). At worst you could call yourself "socially awkward" but I don't like that phrase either. Just think of yourself as "someone with a few friends that wants to make more"(.^_^.)b

Casually throwing self into the topic

I am also a shy individual who will have no one to hang around with. I'm usually okay with this, but this is my first time going all weekend, so I'm pretty sure I'll feel lonely at some point.
Your guys' advice is really helpful and I'll definitely keep it in mind! Maybe we'll see each other? I'll be a lone Taokaka cosplayer, if you do end up seeing me.

sorry, my network of friends in the anime world is very low
Mine is practically non-existent. Some folks I see at a local anime club about once a month, and FanimeCon once a year. But I've worked staff since 2005, and met some good people who also staff (one is even a regular at the local club). Been coming since 1997, and worked as a Vol a couple of years before finding a staff niche. Either way, I have been able to meet people at the con. So do consider it. Hmmm, do they still call it the "Vole Hole" (where volunteer attendees hang out for assignments)?

Yeah a lot of my friends actually bailed for Fanime, but I don't exactly even really have a loner problem. I think everyone is coming to Fanime, like any other con, with the intention to bond with other Anime fans and make friends. If loners are afraid that they're intruding or being awkward, don't. c: I mean, lets face it, us Anime fans are kind of awkward people no matter how you look at it. Anyone who says the aren't and who loves anime are LYING. LOL!

I'm gonna be cosplaying as Simon from Gurren Lagann, Mai Shiranui from Fatal Fury/KOF and (maybe) Grimmjow from Bleach. I don't know which days yet, but one of those 3. Don't be afraid to come up to me to talk about stuff~

I'm ultra shy D: V_V Usually alone in the mornings and late evenings since either my friends don't get up early or at night they're doing events I'm not tooo interested in. Epic Taokaka though! ^^^ :D
