@ crall: Kinda know what you mean, so it is unfortunate that you were separated. Happened to me too. It's like a fond, nostalgic memory, since doubtfully either of us will ever experience the same. Gone is the innocence of childhood, no?

Come on, don't bring back those good, pure, and warm memories. I guess that's the thing about growing up, you lose your innocence. Remember bathing in the sun and playing on the swing and slid without a care in the world. Well you can't do that now, everyone's big and we'll look like retards going down a child slid. People will pull their kids away from the giant lunatic. But it was good while it lasted...

Too bad these days, the kids are growing up way too fast, they have lost the concept of the adventurous curious child. Everything is thrown at them by advertisement. Grow up fast and be cool.

That's just creepy. I'd have to get up at 3 in the morning, hell I find it hard as it is to get up at 6. You'll probably end up playing with a bunch of spirits at 3.

If you you look back on your life and think that high school was the best part of it then you messed up somewhere down the line.

hey thanks man no really.. i appreciate that. it's true as all heck and im glad someone brought that to my attention before "down the line" got longer than i can manage. thanks again, regrets and nostalgic fantasies are for people who don't have guts to live in the now!

Well, I guess I have something to look forward too, then. xD

Interesting topic, BTW. Got some good laughs (those links from the other boards were hilarious!) and good tips. xD

No time to get a boyfriend, though...I mean, gee, college! Anyway even if I get a boyfriend, I probably won't go to the same college as him, and I hear long distance relationships aren't always the best. (essp. if it's your first relationship... >>; -i'm lame-)

anyone here pick up girls/guys at an animecon/club

i was wondering how many of you people actually get dates/form relationships with people in your anime circles. i personally have never done anything like this. at this point i'm probably too old for it since anime seems to target more of the teenage/undergraduate crowd but the whole idea of it seems pretty intriguing.

if anyone has dated someone through anime (or tried to) please tell your story.

of course i ain't got a story but since i started the thread i have to say something so lemme give a little anime club anecdote that might be somewhat related. in my school's anime club (which i only attended about 3 times), i saw this girl one time that i swear i had played dungeons and dragons with earlier in the year. i don't really play d&d (not that there's anything wrong with that) but i was invited by some people and the girl i saw in the anime club looked very similar to one in the group of ppl i had played d&d with. my university isn't in the biggest city, there is only one major university in the city, and being in an anime club and playing d&d seem like two things that probably go hand in hand so i thought the chances it was the same girl were pretty high.

now i wasn't trying to hit on her or anything like that but i guess i was staring at her for a bit while trying to decipher if she was the same girl. eventually i go up to her in front of her friends and ask, "didn't i play d&d with you before" of course i get the reaction and the harsh "no." i bet she probably thought i was trying to pick her up with a smooth d&d opening line or something. i think that incident deterred me from trying to really hit on a girl in an anime club type of environment.

Here is one from many of an aged 25 female from Anime Expo

Quote:
I met my bf back during AX2005!
I was cosplaying Priest from ragnarok online, he was wearing normal clothes.
the details are like....

At the autograph session for azue yamamoto early in the morning(8am), i was the first few ppl arrives there 1 hour before the autograph. Since there wasnt any sign for the session, i went to ask a AX staff. when i came back, a line formed already and a group of ppl (including my bf) took my place.
I told them i was there but they thought i was cutting in the line..then i got my place back because ppl in front said i was there with them.

then this group of ppl behind me started talking. I heard they said "berkeley", i told them im from berkeley too. then we start talking together, about anime, about games, about our dreams..

after AX, i got back to berkeley taking summer school, the guy who said "berkeley" starts chasing me. I dont like him in the beginning..but it was really fun playing games and watching anime together.
2 months later, i became his gf. This year we are going to AX2007 together to celebrate the 2 year anniversiry of our meeting.

Nope, not really. I'm just there to enjoy some time away from work and home. But If i do happen to meet a person, i would try to build a relationship out of that.

I've made female friends from con's.

I wouldn't look at a con as a dating area -- while you all do have common interests, your time together is pretty short and to me it looks kind of desperate if you're trying to hit on someone as fast as you can.

Even in the AX story, they got together a couple of months after the con -- they became friends there and more-than-friends elsewhere.

dating has been rough for me lately. the last guy i dated seemed perfect, until i realized that he had some ultra weird fetishes that he expected me to perform. ever since them, my friends tease me by sending me links to videos on youtube and other random pictures that somehow relate to the situation, lol

No, because anyone that thinks that you're "not in his/her league" don't deserve you, because no human is better than the other. Try to date someone that respects you.

I agree. Some people are just full of themselves.

I love you all. xD

Haha. Aww but that's a shame. I'm sorry.

Anyway... I've been SO unsuccesful with girls. I've just left school recently. And I've never had a girlfriend. (So don't worry Renvi ).

Hmm there was this one girl... but I NEVER spoke to her. By the end of school, though, I realized she didnt seem very nice. I just I could've said SOMETHING though....

But oh well. Gotta move on.
