What do you mean? D:

The girl to guy ratio will be quite large.
I had fun at the Ichiban panel, but there just seemed to be a bit too many guys.
Which I guess it to be expected.

If we predict largely uneven or low attendance of a certain group, it might work to add an incentive.

Something along the lines of Receive xyz for each female friend you bring.

If we can actually make this happen, I can arrange some incentives.

-or-
if we have an adventurous group, we could assign alternate genders to volunteers. If nothing else, it would make things interesting.

I'm interested! I've never "dated" any otaku guys, so this would be pretty fun!

I could find myself at this if it happens and is LGBT friendly and doesn't conflict with the time slot of something else I plan to go to, if nothing else can make new friends perhaps. :)

I can't imagine it not being LGBT friendly. Everybody and their brother is "bisexual" at Anime conventions.

Somehow I think the whole inner motive of the panel is to cater towards LGBT.

Hey guys, try to keep bi bashing down to like none, please. There is a huge difference between someone being fake bi and actually bi. (I'm not saying that your comments are bashing, but they could start something, I've seen it happen before).

As for the inner motive of the panel, I hope you didn't mean that negatively. Speaking as one of the volunteers helping with this panel, we want everyone to feel welcome at this panel. We're not explicitly trying to cater to one crowd as opposed to another. We want everyone to come into this panel and have fun with it.

So what if it is? Equal opportunity is awesome in more ways that one.

Not true, but people seem more accepting of different things at cons with large groups of people with shared interest.



Don't make this seem worse than it is. If you don't want to go, then don't go. As simple as that.

It's okay. It doesn't sound the same as text as it did in my head.

I'll be 24 by the time con rolls around. don't know if I'll be interested in dating, just having gotten out of a 3 year relationship and all, but I will definitely be interested in making friends at the very least.

And as far as ice breakers go, I will gladly stand at the front of the room and shout, "Who wants a hug?!" and we can go from there lol

I think we should have name tags with our forum names on them

Also, has this been approved? I don't know when they let people know and i didn't see it in here

I don't think they've chosen the panels yet. We haven't heard anything, or rather, I haven't heard anything from dthompson09. I'll ask my friend, and fellow volunteer-ladyperson, who is in semi-constant contact (texting) with him to text him and see if he's heard anything.

The wonderful and fantastic Marzipan is actually making nametags for the Animazement fanforum panel if you want a cute nametag!

And not everyone who is going to be at the panel will necessarily be

Is it really so hard to just walk up to a girl/guy you find attractive and talk to her/him?

For some people, it really is.

Personally, yes. Mostly because, in my case, 98% of the people I have found attractive are straight.

Rejection hurts. Like whoa. And people can be so mean about it sometimes that it makes you never want to take a risk again.

There is always going to be rejections in life. What matters is having the strength to get back up and try again instead on digging into a hole and never coming out of it. It takes a couple of no's to get a yes.

I know I'm not giving up and nobody should either. (Unless they found mr. Right or ms. Right)
