Title: Has anyone met their significant other at the fanimecon?
Post by: mookiebear on April 22, 2013, 06:01:16 PM
I'm just curious. I'm sure some have, I mean there's soooo many people and I'd assume somewhere among those people someone would click together. Just curious :P.

Well, I haven't got that close as gf/bf but at another anime con (Anime Expo) I did meet a girl and we just hit it off on the second day and we hanged out the rest of the con. Sadly she was from the east coast and we kind of lost touch after she graduated.

So yes I think it is possibe, for starters we did have a common intrest.

Oh sure, I've meet a bunch of people who've told me they ended up dating someone that they met at a convention. And I've always liked how easy-going and friendly convention people are. But personally, I haven't had the experience before, only because the guys who've approached were either drunk or trying to invite me to a hentai party.

i re-met my current boyfriend at fanime 2011
i had met him two years prior but he was dating my friend at the time and i was wit someone else
when i met him at fanime, i was single and he was single
because we knew each other before, we just hung out and chatted as friends
and then started dating 2-ish months later in the middle of july

i can honestly say that if i hadnt met him at fanime again, i wouldnt be dating him right now
dating almost 2 years now :)

Met my significant other through a group of friends that regularly attend Fanime and cosplays and stuff. I started attending alone and used to feel depressed about not finding anyone; forum users like RyuHayabusa knows. But I cheered myself up and look at me now.

One BIG problem, her birthday is always on Fanime, and she doesn't really want to go to Fanime. I usually give up a day of Fanime to celebrate with her.

I was close to with a Tachibana Kanade some Fanime ago I think, 2011? I wasn't Angel Beats but in a uniform similar and she dragged me along as Hinata since I had blue hair. We clicked and enjoyed the weekend but 2 things got to me. 1. she didn't live in Cali 2. her age at the time :( (big bummer)

You mean girls don't like hentai parties?!!

i met a girl at fanime last year, didn't work out because it was a long distance relationship. We are still friends though ^_^

I haven't met a significant other there and neither have my friends. The most I've gotten with a girl that I've met at Fanime was a really emotionally intimate relationship. We didn't think about dating because of the distance but we had a tight emotional bond. We talked about a lot of personal things with each other. This was years ago though, we recently lost contact. I do believe its possible to meet a significant other at con though.

It really does seem like from everyone's experience we are able to meet some one, but due to the distance it just never works out.

I learned that you have better chances at finding a date at BnW Ball than at SpeedDating.  I was entirely single this year :( I made up for it with some purchases from Dealers hall to try and cheer me up :'(

To be quite honest I hear more about break ups during FanimeCon O_O
A friend of mine had to deal with his sister breaking up with her bf during Fanime last year.

Also every year you do hear about proposals at Fanime. I believe last year's was at a Hetalia gathering and one was this year at Masquerade.

Personally for me though I dragged my fiance into this magical world of cosplay. It's strengthened our relationship, and we look forward every year to going.

From my experience Fanime is where i meet people that i chat with online and then we realize that we don't work in reality and then we never talk again.

It's probably me.

My friend found someone he liked at Fanime 2 years ago. Sad to say it didn't turn out well. He found out after Fanime she had a boyfriend and was using him as a backup. :[ My advice is to be careful about dating someone you meet at Fanime.

My first ever question would be "are you seeing someone?" 2 years ago I wasn't aware someone liked me. I danced with him once at the rave and we talked for maybe 20 minutes. He ended up adding me on facebook where he found out I was already seeing someone. I felt really bad. I didn't think I was leading him on. I had been dating for 3 years already and was older than him.

Proud to say we encourage mutual attraction through your interests/hobbies. That's how Speed Dating is supposed to work. Picking the hottest person in the room but with NOTHING in common with you is not suggested lol. Looks fade but mutual interests last :) There's someone for everyone out there, I believe! Keep good faith!

Sort of. We had been talking online for about two years, and Fanime was when we finally met in person. We've been going strong for almost five years now. <3

Aww, you are so nice.  I used to think that there was someone for everyone out there.  And I am not ugly... I am, however, infinitely interesting.

I ran into a girl whom I considered to be my first love at Fanime last year. It was weird, because she kinda stomped on my heart, you know that kinda thing.

Well, its her lost, man...

To find love at fanime would be nice. To find another soul with the same love for anime culture is just intoxicating. Ive been at fanime since the mid 90s, and i still havent given up hope.

What do you all suppose would be the best ways to meet a significant other?

-Gatherings?
-Speed dating?
-BnW ball?
-Rave?
-Meetups?
-Panels?
-Other?

probably either gatherings, panels, or BnW ball. BnW ball seems to be the place people tend to talk and meet. and the gatherings and panels your around people that have the same interest you do. XD

I met my last ex at one of the B&W Ball's dance lessons and we saw each other at the Ball itself but with separate dates. We hung out a couple times after Fanime and started dating until we broke it off roughly a year later. We're still good friends afterwards so I can definitely say the B&W Ball is a nice place to find someone. :P

I do believe however that love or whatever you guys want to call it happens unexpectedly so don't stress out too much about it and have fun in the con single or not!!

First words to my girlfriend of 8 years "Can I take your picture?" She was dressed as Skuld from OMG, and I was a fanboy, what can I say? Met her again in October at SJSU anime club where we really started talking. I still have the picture that started it all though.   ;D

I talked to him on another forum and found out he lived in the bay area as well. We met at fanime, had good conversations even though he is shy. :P And kept in touch on the other forum. After summer pasted I asked if we could meet again at the japantown festival in san jose, we talked more and before he left asked for his number so we can hang out more. After 3 month of hanging out seeing movies and going to the arcade we finally became a couple and been together for 2 & a half years. :)
