On that note, I think most of the advice so far actually applies- somewhat- to girls. Mainly the "go up to 'em and talk geek" part. Really, just as most girls don't bite (stressing the most- some folks. Jeez.), most guys aren't creepy sicko bastards liable to ambush you in dark alleyways. Life would be a lot easier if both sexes got over our socially-implemented hangups and just talked to each other- especially life for us geeks.

We're equals, yeah? Let's act like it, folks.  8)

in that case...
can I go say hi to you? since knowing you won't be interest in me, so I won't have to worry about how I act as much, maybe I'll be less nervous and get use to talking to girls without being nervous? =P

hehe for me it's more of a phobia..not of just men but people in general..

at conventions it's the only place i feel a little more relieved..going to conventions is helping me overcome my fear
>.<
It just takes me a while to actually warm up to people..
But once i'm in my comfy zone i could talk forever

What a bunch of idiots?

Question. How do you expect to meet/talk to someone, if you do not go up and say hi?

Going up and saying hi is fine, it's what you do AFTER that, that makes things good/bad/awkward/creepy.

Meeting people? Any. It matters what kind of people you want to meet. Generally, people go to ones... that they enjoy. I.E. they will go to a cosplay gathering for a series they enjoy...

Why does this thread scream and cry desperate and lonely, who is caring more about trying to meet a cute girl (of which he will screw it up bad with and/or become "a friend" to) over doing things the person enjoys.
dont listen to that poor lonley  guy

  heres my advice from an actual girl ( iam agirl... im a tomboy all my life ive hung around guys)
^_^

i think its easier at anime cons to talk to girls since they are into anime/ video games or j-rock
its easier to talk to a girl while oure doing something
A. int he dealers room  while shes looking at  something ( a plushie or a book or an object)

B. Video game room playing on the same machine as you

i actually met my bf at Fanime con  he just came up and talked to me  first we were friends tho
so dont  worry guys  if the first girl doesnt bite try again later :3

i think its easier at anime cons to talk to girls since they are into anime/ video games or j-rock its easier to talk to a girl while youre doing something:

A. int he dealers room  while shes looking at  something ( a plushie or a book or an object)

B. Video game room playing on the same machine as you

i actually met my bf at Fanime con  he just came up and talked to me  first we were friends tho so dont  worry guys  if the first girl doesnt bite try again later :3

Usually people also casually meet on the main concourse, like during cosplay gatherings... waiting in line or sometimes the accidental damsel in anime distress situation.

or the occasional accidental mistaken identity and super running glomp of happy doom....

as for girls "biting" some guys are into it... others are probably afriad run for the hills...

or me... if i see to much cleavage i LITERALLY get nosebleeds.
yes. it DOES happen.   :P

WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT a second. Basically... you said, don't listen to me, when what I said isn't too much different from what you said. You're basically telling people... not to listen to you either.

Me... lonely? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahaahhahahaahhahahahahahahahahahha
hahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

ahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

I currently live with my girlfriend.

I've had no trouble finding a girlfriend the majority of my life. I've never had trouble talking to girls, whether it be to befriend them, or to pursue a relationship with them.

Oh, but you have a vagina, so that means, you automatically know more, except, you contradict yourself by saying you're a tomboy. So your opinion goes out the window since you're not the "average girl" anymore, and are now an exception to the rule.

But it's not like your post actually gave any useful information anyways.

It's not that hard, approach girl... say hi, then make a comment appropriate for the situation. Carry a conversation from there, see where it leads.

Well papertiger, unless you are a guy named Eric who chatted me up on the way home from Fanime tonight on the light rail, I think you'll do fine.

Here's what Eric did wrong:
-he asked too many personal questions right off the bat (have you lived in San Jose long, where are you going, who do you live with, can I get your number?)
-he didn't pick up on the cues from me that I obviously didn't want to talk.

So basically, stick to "neutral" topics (anime, manga, etc. at the con, maybe likes/dislikes if you notice she has a pin on her bag of your favorite band or whatnot). Pay attention to her. If she answers you but doesn't ask a question back, or sticks to simple "yes" or "no" answers, then back off. If she seems like she wants to have a conversation with you, then continue on. Also know when to stop. If she keeps checking her cell phone or looking at her schedule, she probably wants to stop talking to you and go elsewhere. Smile, say it was nice to meet her, and that you hope you'll see her around. If you get a good vibe from her, maybe she'll ask for YOUR number! Good luck!
