I truly feel that there is no one worth knowing in these types of hobbies. Cosplay, lolita, cons, these are all havens for socially maladjusted losers who turn out to be more bitter and caustic than average ""normalfags"".
On the other hand, engaging in other creative hobbies like art, music, and woodworking has led to meeting so many amazing people, including my current girlfriend.

One of my biggest fantasies is going to an anime convention with a girl and letting her use me as her personal human ATM.

>I will pay for her travel costs
>I will pay for her hotel room
>I will pay for her entry fee
>I will pay for her cosplay if she chooses to dress up
>I will pay for all her meals
>I will pay for anything she wants to buy from the merch booths
>I will perform any additional favors or tasks she desires. Carrying her things, saving her place in long lines, taking pictures of her, etc

The most important part is that even though I will be there with her, I will make sure to keep a respectable distance between us. Close enough that she can call me over to borrow my wallet when she wants to buy something, and give me her bags to carry for her, but far enough away that nobody will look at us and think we are a couple. This way she will be free to flirt with any guys she meets there and get hit on. If I'm lucky, she'll let me wait outside of her hotel room while she hooks up with them.

When I go to cons, I really need to stop focusing on quantity by trying to take pics of so many cosplayers. It makes me miss chances for social opportunities and making friends with people who'd be interested in talking to me.

All of these hobby spaces have wonderful people in them and unfriendly people in them. I do hear about drama in far away communities but I've never personally experienced that in the communities I've been in (cosplay, lolita, art, other creative hobbies). I don't think I got unusually lucky, I think the drama is the exception not the rule.

On one hand, I want to cosplay something I'm passionate about because that's the entire point.
On the other hand, I want to cosplay something popular because I experienced the unfathomable dopamine hit of someone asking to take a picture with me and that memory will stay with me for the rest of my life as it is quite possibly the only time anyone I don't already know has been that interested in me.

Maybe you could put up like a mainstream shonen anime poster in your office? And perhaps just see what happens from there - at least, I think this would be like a more passive / relatively innocuous way of approaching things.

(I just mention shonen in particular since that's mainstream and a relatively "normie" thing now, not like having a Boku no Pico poster or something crazy like that)

Maybe even something like a small anime-related figure or plushie - I guess something more on the inconspicuous side - this would allow him to engage / initiate rather than you (since you mentioned he visits your office a lot - he's bound to see it eventually)

I'm not either, but I'm asking because I keep seeing this pattern.
I wonder if christian men actually prefer atheist women, woo them under the pretense of atheism, and keep their true beliefs a secret until they want to get rid of the atheist partner guilt-free.
Then they deliberately overact their lunatic tendencies to get their partner to leave them.
If they dated christian women, they would have no premarital or wild sex (well, except that an anonymous survey revealed that many christian men don't see buttsex as sinful), and would have to actually make it work.
They can just lament that their "conversion attempt" failed, and so, are unequally yolked or something, and thus, free to ditch them.

There's some muslim guys in my college who talked about doing something similar. They're allowed to date non muslim girls as long as they don't marry them. They date and fuck around a lot (hiding their religion, not introducing the gf to their parents) and dump their girlfriends guilt free when it suits them. Their parents are fine with it. If the girl isn't muslim they don't consider it serious anyway. A few of these guys said they were absolutely dreading the moment their parents would force them to marry muslim women, they see it as an end of their life.

>What anime are you planning on watching anyway.
Nothing in particular, I've barely watched any anime in the past year anyway. Maybe it doesn't end up being anime.
I have been wanting to do a real rewatch of Princess Tutu for a while though, I have started a few times in the past but never gotten past the first few episodes. But I have this fantasy of forcing people I know to marathon it with me, it'll never happen though so I should just watch it if I want to. I've been listening a lot to the soundtrack lately, which is nice, and maybe it'd be better to watch it a day that's more quiet so I can enjoy the soundtrack more anyway.

I think I've lost the final few people I was able to sit with at lectures, the few people who were still coming have found different groups to be with, so I got no one left, I'm back to where I began, always being alone.

Not looking forward to summer at all, it'll be so lonely and boring, and I'll lose all motivation for everything, but it probably won't be much better when summer is over either, I lost my lecture people which will remain true, and I'll probably lose three of my favorite people from classes too, when they move or advance to higher levels while I remain.

She's actually already done some OF-type stuff, when she was with her ex-husband and they were desperate for money during the pandemic, the nudes she gave me were actually from that. She has a rare and, to some guys, desirable body type (basically a legal loli) and I'm a former pro photographer so I've talked to her about doing more of that sort of stuff at a higher quality level than what she had before, and we've moved a bit toward more risque stuff in shoots we've done together, but she doesn't want to do full nudity again.

>Just tell her she'll never do better than you and if she doesn't at least try it, she'll regret it for the rest of her life.
This conversation has already been had and she actually agrees with it herself, tells me a lot how much better I am than other guys she's been close to in her life and stuff too, but she's really traumatized from bad past experiences and abusive relationships, and is really fixated on the idea of getting closure for some of those things and becoming independent and self-sufficient before getting into another relationship, and also has pretty fucked self-esteem and is convinced that she ruins the life of every guy she gets with and will do the same to me if we get together. (Thing is I actually know the details of her last couple of relationships and the guys in question were already fucked up loser manchildren with drug problems etc. and in reality she's just beating herself up over not being able to fix dudes who were already lost causes and horrifically inappropriate partners for her.)

The holiday is getting close and it's going to suck as usual. I should have fled to a different country.
I won't do anything with my classmates. I did sign up for hot dogs though, but it's an open event for people who study the same as me, so going there means nothing and I'm not close with any of the people I study with either, there's a real, great risk that I just end up being alone, not included with any of the smaller groups talking.
The worst day of the year.
And it's not just this year either, I have never spent the days with friends, and I have been alive for many years.
It really shows where I actually am socially. The people in my class were talking about their plans, and I think everyone had something with people who actually want to be with them. And if anyone didn't, I'm sure this year is an exception and they usually do.
I may actually never have met anyone who's less liked than me, and this day illustrates it so well.
I was kind of considering asking a jfashion community in a different country for a last minute meetup, but I'm not really a part of any communities anyway and no one would have wanted to, and it's not that fun to spend the whole day traveling either.

In my mid-20's and I'm tired of being single. I had one relationship last year and although it barely lasted a month, I loved every single moment (when things didn't go to shit of course), so a relationship is something I'd like to pursue again.

Although I genuinely think I'm a pretty handsome dude, I get no matches on dating apps, so I have to go outside, touch grass and talk to women.

I'm a college graduate and I work from home. My hobbies are just video games and the occasional anime/tv show so literally the only place I can organically meet people with a shared interest are anime conventions.

I went to a few conventions but I've only really had success this year where I actively tried to talk to more women, I went one day and conversated with around 8-10 girls, I grabbed their insta's but I only managed to meet up with 2 of them outside of the convention, and those meetups didn't result in anything meaningful. I think the main problem is that I only approached cosplayers exclusively.

I'm going to another one soon and I think this time I'll try to reach out to more people who aren't in cosplay, as I think the cosplayers are already getting stopped for photos and hounded for their instas all the time anyway, so it's pretty stiff competition if I just only approach the cosplayers.

I just wanna stress that i'm not a creep or anything, the moment I get a whiff they're not interested, I tell them to have a nice day and I walk away asap.

To be fair that's basically what cons started out as, and what they were until about 2010; not exclusively dating specifically but socializing and meeting new people in general and dating and hookups were definitely part of that. The idea of cons as these things where people just go to see commercial booths and panels with their existing friends and to get photographed in cosplay (that they didn't even make!) but not to socialize with anybody new would have been unthinkable 20 years ago.

I understand. I have/had this massive crush on this adorable cosplayer in her late 20's.
It started when I stumbled across her profile, I'm a content creator and saw she was in my area so I figured fuck it why not shoot my shot and ask for a collab, I even asked her on a date and she very politely turned me down.

We quickly became friends though, I shared her my pictures and she called me handsome, she even made me a custom fumo doll which I still sleep next to every day. Hell, I'm even on her private account.
Although I genuinely enjoyed talking to her, after a while, it became very clear to me that I would never be anything more than just a casual fan/friend of hers. I'm not in her close circle of friends, I'm not an active member in her community/chat, she would take hours or days to respond, she'd stonewall me when I wanted to ask for more personal details about her life etc.

I'm just one of the 50+ guys in her DM's (no seriously, she posted a story about how she got 50 dm's and will try to get back to all of them, lmao)

if I tried hard enough I could get into her close circle, but I'd rather not compete with like 5 other people for scraps of her attention, instead of obsessing/simping over her, my energy is just better spent on someone who can make more time for me.
I'm still friends with her, and I'll reach out to her when it's relevant, but I'm trying to just stop fawning over her, there was a period where I didn't talk/message her for over 3 months until she reached out, I'm proud of that.

My advice to you is that it's okay to be a fan and a part of her community if you enjoy that, but you should eventually move on from being in love with her, like with any female cosplayer/streamer online, you're basically competing with her mods, donators, the several dozen people in her inbox's AND her actual IRL social circle.

YES it is possible that as a fan you can eventually wife her, it does happen, but man, It's stiff fucking competition.

The same day though when I asked if she wanted to hang out later she just basically said that while she likes meeting and talking to people at conventions she prefers to leave it that way cause she's so busy and can't even make time for her own friends. Maybe I just wasn't interesting enough for her but oh well.

We are both literally autistic, I felt like I had found a unicorn, I just don't understand letting that go and not even saying anything
I'm really not one to judge because I'm far from some chaste gentleman but it did irk me how once we got to the dance she was breaking away so much, I suddenly felt out of place again and like the literal day we had spent together hadn't meant anything
I was really looking forward to just dancing with her the whole night but I also think I was making her other (probably dyke) friend buttmad since she had been all over me that day and she wanted to be possessive, cunt
maybe I just gotta bite the bullet and spend the dollars on my own hotel room so that I can push the issue instead of relying on someone else to hope they let me chill with them, but it's not like I'm going to a con just to try and woo girls

I'm not much better at not being socially anxious though and am constantly afraid of saying something stupid or autistic or just generally annoying people that I still struggle to open conversations at cons or to maintain relationships even if I go get people who I met's contact info.

>thought she wanted me to come with her back to her hotel room

You thought wrong. You can't assume she wants that unless she literally says she wants you to come up to her hotel room, or she tries to physically drag you there.

>why are you like this?

Women aren't a hivemind, I know that makes it more complicated. We also aren't responsible for the behaviour of other women. (This works both ways)
My best guess is she was interested in you and liked talking and flirting with you but she noticed you assumed you were going to do the vertical tango and she didn't like that.

It's also possible she chickened out, it's one thing to flirt with someone, it's quite another thing to sleep with a near stranger. It's risky behaviour. Even if she came there with the intention to get laid at the con she could have very well thought "wtf am I doing?" last minute.

Her being avoidant at the dance could fit within both scenarios.
At the very least we can assume she likes flirting with and talking to guys but we can't assume she wants it to go further.

we both were making blatant innuendos the whole time while constantly touching each other, it could not have been more heavy of an implication
I really don't know how to emphasize that further
Plus this was after basically a whole day of us hanging out and clicking better than I've clicked with anyone before

And like I said, I saw her being all over literally everyone else once we got to the dance, like literally other guys and girls she hadn't even looked at before, meanwhile we had both told each other toward the end of the day we really liked each other and I had been trying to look out for her the whole day, like she had problems with loud noises and covered her ears a lot in the panel we went to and I constantly asked her if she was okay and if she wanted to leave but she kept saying she was fine and that I was great
It really feels like the whole afternoon was us both winding up a pitch but then she just let the ball fall to the ground at the last minute, I don't see how anyone could have assumed differently if they had gone through the same situation

>> No.10919090

also for the record, dead honest, I would've been fine with no sex if she wasn't comfortable, I honestly just wanted to snuggle up with her and spend time away from the con with her especially since she had the problems with noises, but she just didn't want me up in the room even to chill out with her, seemingly completely opposite to everything else she had said and done throughout the day

I think I deserve to feel slighted when we end up going to the dance together after all that and she ends up just acting like a whore with other random people, and even then I didn't try to hardcore keep myself on her because at that point it seemed like she had really showed her hand and deflated my enthusiasm
this is legit a girl I would've asked out on a real date after the con, I'm not just trying to get in her pants, she's the one who gave me that impression and I don't know maybe she really is just a slut and was leading me on knowingly or not
I'm not one to judge or have expectations of purity at a fuckin anime con but effectively she did lead me on the whole day and I honestly feel like I did nothing wrong, I was accommodating and nice to her the whole day and if she had been upfront I would've been fine with whatever she was comfortable with
I don't know if I mentioned it but both me and this girl are literally autistic, I feel like I had found a unicorn honestly, I've never felt so comfortable talking to someone before

Nice comeback from an autist. The way you talked about her friend it's obvious you're an asshole. You also treat women as a hivemind, demanding we explain ourselves for the actions of another woman. You're not as nice and as good of a person as you think you are. Stop being a stubborn entitled fuckwad who asks for an explanation and then doesn't like when someone gives you an honest explanation.

Your biggest problem isn't your autism and all of the hurdles that come along with that, it's the fact that you don't even seem to like women, you're an asshole, you feel entitled to come to her room with her just because you think it was implied, and worst of all you do not want to listen when someone tells you you cannot assume things like this.
If you don't change you're going to get into trouble one day.

unless she actually said she wanted to go there or dragged you to her hotel room you cannot make assumptions. People misread the intentions of others very often, especially people with autism. You cannot rely on cues, suggestions, signs and implications even if they you think they are blatant. Just because she said she liked you doesn't mean she wants you to go to her room with her. You just met and barely know each other.
She literally told you to fuck off, that's as clear as it gets.

Don't be surprised when someone who was willing to get handsy with someone they barely know at a con won't be willing to do it with other people. Do you really think you're so special that you can change someone who isn't willing to do that into someone who does?

>> No.10919100

her "friend" was also someone else she had just met, it's not like she was any more or less special than me, she was just jealous of me seemingly and she was really aggressively possessive of her but I guess it's okay to you because of what's between her legs? give me a break
>just because you think it was implied
we were blatantly talking about sexual stuff for hours while she kept letting me rub the inside of her leg, touching parts of it and her talking about how some it is tense or fat, her stretching suggestively and adjusting her bra right next to me with half my body on her and just letting me look, saying she wanted to go back to her room and "charge her phone" then I take mine out and go "you know, maybe I should do that myself" and she's like "yeah, you should"
or her literally bringing up shit like how her biggest fantasy is to just constantly pump out a guy's kids, unprompted, multiple times, and me having the same kink and basically approving her and she's just like "you're great, you're so great, I wouldn't be in this panel if I didn't like you a lot, this was really fun"
If you don't think it's not leading someone on to do all this crap and then cut them off and be a whore with random people in the dance then YOU are the asshole, and also even somehow more oblivious than a literal autistic like me

>but you didn't think that when she was doing that with you
because she was sober, and it was literal hours of lead up to it with her only initiating with really light touches after we had started to click and share stuff with each other, not just hanging off some random people's arms simultaneously that she just ran into when she got out of the bathroom and she's not walking super well after who knows how many drinks
like I said, I would've been fine with no sex, I just genuinely wanted to spend time with her alone and she hardcore gave the implication she wanted me to come up
like, it could not have been more blatant than all this shit and this wasn't even all of it

I'm not trying to change shit, she gave me both her number and discord and I just wanted to spend more time with her after she leaves, she even lives in the same city I do and told me that herself for Christ's sake
some of you people really have a fucking chip on your shoulder, you're getting on me for questioning "women" yet turning around and treating me like I'm just some random douchebag trying to pick up chicks at a con and not a terminal shut in who used this opportunity over the weekend to really try harder than I ever have in my life to be outgoing, nice, and make connections with people when I've never had the confidence to do it before and it's just made me miserable and lonely
This is why I only want to talk to other autistic people like her, you just don't fucking get it and think I'm lying or not being genuine because that's all normal people do, it's a bunch of stupid verbal games just hiding what you really mean and I'm so sick of trying to deal with it and getting treated like an alien by neurotypicals just because I want clear and honest communication. If I'm doing something you don't like? Just fucking tell me and I'll stop, I'm not a goddamn mind reader and you're not going to hurt my feelings if you're just blunt about whatever

>> No.10919103

just to add, what DOES hurt my feelings is being manipulated or ghosted, that shit is more fucked up than anything but it's all normal people seem to fucking do yet I'm treated like some kind of social pariah for telling someone I don't like or that's doing something shit that I don't like them or that they're doing something shit and I want them to stop or fuck off instead of playing this retarded social game that you're just "supposed" to understand

An anime convention used to be a place for people like me to find people like her, or at least what I thought she was, weirdos who like weird stuff and don't get out much but if we run into someone else like us by some miracle we end up clicking immediately. It's not just a girl thing either, it's the same with guys I've met at cons, they are some of the coolest dudes I've ever run into and they're weird in the same way I am and we never would have even met if it wasn't for the con.

Yet here I am, getting treated like some regular pickup douchebag because I dared to be upset that this girl I was genuinely into ended up leading me on and then just ghosting me
And again, dead ass serious, if she was more clear that she just wanted to maybe cuddle and whatnot but she really didn't want anything after the con I would've been totally cool with that as long as she told me straight up, the only thing she said to that effect was after we had spent literal hours all over each other and at that point I can't logically think anything except that she's trying to be coy
I was just happy to spend time with her and I wasn't even really mad in the moment I noticed she was breaking off or didn't invite me up to her room, I'm just depressed that I felt like I had found the perfect girl and maybe my life could've started to become a little more happy but I ended up just getting played

So no, in fact YOU are being the asshole here, hence my initial statement, women, why? Or maybe I should just say normal people. You suck

>> No.10919107

It's fine to feel hurt but her flirting with you and having a good time with you was not in any way a promise of sex or even continued connection, there is no reason that this would be assumed. You felt hurt because you are probably a lonely person, so making a connection like this is probably like having a hope dangled in front of you and then taken away. But to her and probably a lot of other people the interaction you had is actually very casual and would not have to mean anything beyond a nice experience that doesn't need to go further.

>> No.10919108

>But to her and probably a lot of other people the interaction you had is actually very casual and would not have to mean anything beyond a nice experience that doesn't need to go further
You see, I think this is kind of fucked up, but if it was clearly communicated to me from the start I would've been more accepting.
I don't know how to emphasize more that it wasn't like we just hooked up and were touching each other drunk and shit, we met the previous night, clicked real nice and actually exchanged multiple forms of contact, met up the next day both sober and clear headed, spent the majority of the day together on a literal date, and slowly escalating affection with HER initiating basically all of it and me reciprocating because I'm deathly afraid from overstepping boundaries like that in general, it's a huge source of my anxiety that makes it hard for me to connect with people and them not clearly communicating their wants is what I really struggle with dealing with and I think it's fucked up that the world works this way.

Like I already said, cons were supposed to be a place for people like me to meet other weirdos and make friends, there's countless stories I've heard from other less than normal people who got real relationships from going to cons and even some that have gotten married to people they met there

Honest to God, I feel like I did nothing wrong, and if I did and if this is just how the world works, where I can be the most accommodating and kind and outgoing version of myself I feel like I've ever been in my life and really try in a way I've always been too scared to do and it STILL leads to nothing and I end up even getting shunned for expecting something that's reasonable, why the fuck should I ever even care about leaving my house, trying to improve my life, trying to be nice and open with others, trying to do anything at all but exist because dying is too much of a hassle?

Anyway that makes sense and I kind of already realized it, I just think it's really fucked up that's how the world works and that you're just expected to be okay with this
Like I said, I just want clear and consistent communication, hell her saying she was actually autistic (not just some faggot online getting attention oh I'm so quirky teehee) and me talking with her was honestly really eye opening for myself, I was relating to and agreeing with so much of what she was saying and how she thinks. I always thought I was probably some degree of autistic but I hate being a self diagnosing attention whore and because of abuse I've been gaslit my whole life into thinking I'm just lazy, or just weird, or "just an introvert" when in actuality I really enjoy talking with and being around people, I just struggle really fucking hard with someone who doesn't think like I do which is like 99% of people and I fucking hate it.
Talking with her and realizing yes, I am almost certainly in fact almost autistic is honestly a really big moment for me personally and it just makes me all the more upset that I ended up effectively being used, even if it was nice in the moment and I'm glad anything happened at all and proud of myself for trying so hard when normally I would be too scared to ever speak up like that.

It also makes me even more upset because where the hell am I supposed to find other autistic girls? Conventions, right? Well no, apparently everyone there is a normalfag who doesn't care and aren't looking for real connections either, I hate it. I hate it I hate it I hate it

I see your point and it's not a bad idea, but I'd rather not get into new hobbies just for the sake of making it a talking point/getting women, if I want to get into a hobby It should be because it's something I genuinely want to get into. Hence why vidya is one of my only hobbies.

I CAN actually talk to them, as a matter of fact there were 3 instances at this convention were I talked to women for a bit over 2+ hours, and tons of instances of making small talk etc, my problem is that I can't get it to transition into anything beyond that (for the most part anyway, like I said a few months ago I did end up meeting 2 people outside the con).

I can get their instagrams and even their discords or Wechat no problem, but anything beyond sending a "Hey it was nice meeting you!!" text is hard for me. Again I think my problem is that I almost approach exclusively cosplayers and I presume they already have TONS of guys in their dm's etc, I want to talk to the non-cosplayers more, which I did on Sunday but again cause I overslept I could only do it for so long before the con ended.

I suppose it's just a skill I need to keep working on.

Don't let it discourage you, like I said she at least found you decent looking enough to lay down with you and touch you etc. This was just ONE girl out of many that you could form a potential connection with at a convention. The key takeaway from this is that now you know you at least have potential. There could've been a billion reasons why she brushed you off, just assume it's not personal. It's fine to be bummed out by the while thing, I know I certainly would feel slighted if the same thing happened to me, you're allowed to be sad about it for a while but just don't let it change your entire mindset about women or conventions etc.

Sometimes the woman you talk to all day will brush you off the following day, sometimes the woman you talk to for 10 minutes becomes your friend for the next 3 months. No one on this earth can possibly know what each road with a person will eventually lead to.

Basically just instead of thinking "Ahh man she totally brushed me off what a bitch/whore I'm never going to a convention again" (just exaggerating here) just think "Well now I know I got potential and even if this didn't lead to anything I still had fun hanging out with her". Basically it's fine to be bummed out for a bit but if you don't' change your outlook in these situations it's not gonna help in the future.

Us guys do not want hookups, we want relationships, there's a big difference, although if hooking up on day one is part of that relationship, then it's fine. Hence why he said he was fine he didn't end up hooking up with her cause it's not his intention at the start. But there's no point in sex if it's just a purely transactional thing, like a hooker. It's like using a cheat code to beat a level, there's no point. Although I am a virgin so take that what you will.

it can be a catch 22 if you are lonely and desperate for connection, but genuine connections form more easily when your wellbeing isn't relying on that one connection forming.

Stop hinging your happiness on a (potential) relationship. It's never a good idea.
Maintain a good social life with multiple close friends so you don't put all of your social needs onto 1 person.
If you don't have a social circle like that then that's what you should be working on first. Trying to get a relationship when you're unable to make and keep friendships is a recipe for disaster. You will be putting all of your social and emotional needs on 1 person and that's just too much. Then there's also the reasons why you don't have friends, I don't know what those reasons are but those same reasons might be the downfall of any relationship you even get into. Dating before you even have friends is like moving from level one straight to level 5 and missing vital information from level 2 to 4.

Also don't just be nice to people only when you get something out of it. That would make you the Nice Guy stereotype.
Being miserable is not an excuse.

If you don't like people you're not going to like your partner if she doesn't agree with you on something. Don't expect that a relationship will be your ticket out of your parent's house. You should go live on your own. If you don't have an income because your mental illness(es) prevent you from having a job then get treatment, and also look into disability assistance. It might be enough money for you to live alone somewhere. If it's not enough for that then it might still be enough to live with a friend.

there's nothing wrong with a guy who only has guy friends. You don't need a female friend.

>> No.10919422

What's keeping you inside the house if I may ask?
If you're waiting to make friends at the con (is that like once a year?) then it might not happen for a few years. I have talked to people at the con who I really clicked with, who gave me their contact info, we then started chatting online but it never eventually grew into an irl friendship.

Even if you made a friend at the con you would have to be willing to get out of the house to see that friend at least some of the time.

It's true that you don't typically become friends with random people you meet outside. If you click with the people at the con you can also try to find people (hopefully near you) who have the same interests outside of the con. Go visit a local comic book store/manga store. My local comic book store hosts monthly events such as card tournaments. This may sound weird but there are some people who just hang out at the store for most of the day if they have free time, even if they don't buy anything. These people usually form some kind of group and they go to the movies together or start playing D&D.

Some cities have manga/anime associations. Sometimes those are tied to universities but all the ones I have seen so far were also open to outsiders and had no maximum age requirements. There are probably fewer of these around than there used to be because anime is easily available now, but there are some that still active.

Nerds are everywhere these days. Just last night I went to an acquaintance's home for the first time to help her fix a dress. I knew she was married, but I had never seen the guy and she never mentioned his interests. I saw anime posters and game merch (he had a huge zelda sword) everywhere in their living room and home office. I said "an anime fan lives here" and her husband shouts "that would be me" from the living room. She said "I'm not interested in that kind of stuff" and shrugged.

You can also go the online route. Go visit websites/forums/groups about the topics you're interested in. Most forums are dead these days but you might be able to find an active one. Do not use CGL to find friends, it's full of mentally ill assholes like us.

Then just talk to people there about your topics. Word of warning; do not share too much about your private life, do not share info about your problems. Keep it light and positive. Once you make an irl friend you're safe to share that kind of stuff.

Establish yourself in that group, then once most people have seen you around online and you're no longer a complete stranger you can offer to host a hangout in your city. That's when you find out if there are locals. You would need to find some kind of activity to do, or just keep it simple and have some drinks and some snacks at a cafe or bar. Warning; these things cost money.

Apply for disability assistance, depending on where you are it might be enough to live independently in a (shoebox) apartment in the city. They're probably going to require that you get treatment if you do get disability assistance, and they might also fund that.

Depends, some distribution companies like discotek sell around what their own website price+shipping is, some manga sellers still do bulk deals that are competitive, figures it is always fucked with tiny exceptions unless it is gunpla where the prices match most retailer prices(whick is like 10%-15% higher than online retailers for model kits) and occasionally there are places with niche items barely anyone carries. Things are only slightly worse than what I saw around 6 years ago, figures and anime are grossly overpriced now.

I love how mezzo piano has become the punching bag on cgl when it’s relatively unpopular compared to most fetishes.

as a woman i'm exactly like this. i enjoy meeting and talking to new people and making spontaneous connections at cons, but i tend to not keep up those connections because A. my social battery dies quickly and abruptly and B. due to my assburgers i am scared shitless of genuine deep connection and long term friendships.

of course there's also C.: many male autists (and men in general) consider close personal friendships with women to be a waste of time if they don't end in romantic and/or sexual relations. and it's really fucking off putting to me when it's made blatantly obvious during a conversation. though it seems like a different situation re: >>10918849. sorry that happened anon.

I'm conflicted on this, obviously you are free to talk to whoever you want at a con and you don't owe them anything, but it does feel like a waste to hear you basically throw all those connections away.

I imagine there were tons of people who were excited to talk to you after the con only for you to brush them off and leave them feeling sad.

Nayrt, but if she did not give her contact info then why would anyone have the expectation to interact post con?
And if she did give her contact info people should still not expect this to be more than casual/surface level interaction post con. The disappointment is due to unrealistic expectations in these scenarios.

I met a guy at a con workshop, we had a great time and exchanged contact info. We looked each other up on fb and became fb friends. He hasn't said more than 4 sentences to me in 5 years, so I just assumed he wasn't interested beyond extremely sparse and casual interaction. This didn't make me sad or disappointed because I never had any expectations anyway. I matched his level of interaction. If he wanted more than that he would have made that clear by interacting more. He had all the opportunity and time in the world to do so. When I cleaned up my friends list last year I also unfriended his account.

ayrt, i do give out my instagram if asked for it with a verbal caveat that i am terrible at answering DMs and may not respond. i don't give out my discord or my number or any form of social media designed solely for messaging. also, as i attend a lot of local cons and make a point to attend the same cons year after year, i often run into the same people i've met before and catch up with them then. i find DMs and online messaging to be very stale in comparison to real life interactions. trying to keep a convo going via text makes me want to off myself, but it flows much smoother in person.

you're right that i probably shouldn't give out contact info at all, and i likely need to be more up front that i have little intention of keeping regular communication post con. i typically just go with my "i don't answer DMs" schtick, but i'm not sure everyone gets the message. it's really just that i don't want to hurt anyone's feelings or give the impression that i didn't find them interesting, when i really did have a great time talking to them. i'm the problem, not them, and i want them to know that; refusing to give out social media can seem like a blatant rejection, and i'm happy to rekindle those connections at future events. but i'm probably overthinking it.

You assumed too much brother. If she was autistic, which anime con... real possibility, believe me when I say what you think is heavy innuendo isn't. It's just bullshitting. You're reading into it far too much because an autistic person doesn't read into any of those actions at all. All of those actions and words are presented at face value for them. I know it's hard to wrap your head around but it's true. I know positive consent is clunky and has the potential to kill the mood but it's literally the only way to actually know if there is real intention or consent. I unfortunately know this from experience. I got to the point of literally making out with a girl before it clicked in her head my intentions were romantic. I thought everything said before that point was clear but it wasn't on her end. Her autism didn't connect the dots of all the lewd talk we were having until literally that point. So especially with anime con my policy is to be more blunt then I would be in everyday life because of the high degree of mental illness at cons. You kind of have the match of wave length of your fellow attendees here.

>> No.10920342

For starters that's cap. I don't know why people keep on trying to pretend like cons are overrun with children on school trips. You're just feeling internally self conscious for engaging in what is admittedly childish behavior. (Kill the cringe in your heart)

Secondly it's perfectly fine to interact with younger people on the con floor as long as it is in an appropriate way. They are still people. Just don't be weird. And yes getting panicked that you're talking to a minor in any capacity is weird. You shouldn't feel weird for just shooting the shit with someone on the con floor if you have no intentions beyond that. Don't invite them to your room party but there is no good reason to just flat out avoid talk anyone younger than you. That's weird.

okay, she led you on. that's shitty and i'm sorry that happened. you've sent your 10-odd vent messages out to anons on 4chan for catharsis - now it's time to recuperate and move on. dropped connections and disappointment happen in social situations, and all you can do is pick your head up, go to the next con, and try again.

it sounds like this girl just got cold feet. it doesn't really matter what the reason was, but no, not everyone will be like that. as >>10918980 said, take it as a win that she hung out and flirted with you for hours. that means that you're attractive and interesting and sociable enough for women to want to spend time with you; this one interaction ending poorly doesn't negate that. put yourself out there, and try not to overreact to rejection or disappointment. i know it's hard to grasp this for us autists after a lifetime of social exclusion, but forming relationships is often one of those "journey not destination" things. when you finally find the one, you'll be able to look back at all the cool people you met and fun times you had over the years, even if those connections were just a brief whirlwind of a night.

>> No.10920352

>I think ghosting or leading people on is genuinely evil
again, sorry that happened. it's frustrating to be ghosted, but you aren't entitled to anyone's time, and lack of communication is shitty but is not a crime. besides, think about how much time you've wasted seething over this girl. if she acts like this, is she really worth your attention? would you really have wanted an ongoing relationship with someone who can't communicate?

i know this sounds like hippie bullshit but there really is truth to the idea that you get back the energy you put out into the world. the more you internalize these situations, the more negative you will feel about socializing in general, and that doomer mindset unfortunately tends to seep into interactions. again, not everyone is like this. take a breath, hype yourself up, and remember that if you made it all the way to the end of the night with her before she ghosted, that means you're good company! take it in stride and move onto the next one.

That con is literally one of my only opportunities to escape

>> No.10920355

i understand, anon. i really do. i've been there too - in fact, i'm in a similar living situation to you as well.

i know exactly how it feels to have no one and crave that connection. but it's dangerous to put all your desires for escape onto one stranger. friendship is wonderful, but setting your expectations so high right off the bat is exactly why you felt the weekend was ruined. you had fun. you talked to people. you got to sperg out over anime. all of these little moments will make it worth it in time. the more you learn to take the good with the bad, the better you will feel about life, even when things get really fucking dark.

did you talk to the girl about your home life or mental health struggles? if so, it's possible that she too was looking for an escape from negativity that weekend, and didn't feel well equipped to take on the emotional weight of your problems. she also may have seen that you're struggling, and assumed it would hurt you less to leave without outright rejection to your face, as it seems like you face a lot of rejection and strife in your life and she didn't want to do that to you too. just speculating here, and i agree that she should have communicated directly. but i don't think she necessarily had bad intentions. regardless, it still hurts, and i get that. it sucks, but you're both human, and these things happen.

>> No.10920357

No I never talk about that kind of stuff with anyone, like I said my problem is just the lack of clear communication
Which is really what I'm hung up over, because she was autistic too, and we talked about that sort of thing and I felt like she actually understood me and my problems with that sort of thing
Then it turns out she was just slutty and getting touchy feely with random people regardless
I don't know where else I'm even supposed to find other opportunities to try communicating with people like me, and even if I did I'm pretty much trapped where I live regardless so I can't even get myself out there
I've basically been abandoned without a word by everyone I ever considered a real "friend" so at this point I'm really fucking over it

>> No.10920360

>we talked about that sort of thing and I felt like she actually understood me and my problems
i'm sorry anon but this is exactly what i'm getting at. i had to unlearn the behavior of bringing up "wahhhh muh autism" every time i got into a conversation with a potential new friend, and it seriously did wonders for my ability to make lasting connections, even with fellow autists.

consider that she may have related to your struggles, but not wanted to talk about how shitty it is to go through life with autism and being unable to keep friends. as i said, she may not have felt well equipped to take on that emotional weight, and wanted an escape from that negativity herself. autism and its struggles are overwhelmingly negative. for me, even when i can relate, there is nothing that kills a fun and positive vibe faster than "boohoo i'm a friendless sperg".

it's also possible that you may have been unconsciously projecting your desires for escape onto her, and she couldn't handle that pressure. if she picked up on your feelings re: wanting this con and a new connection to turn your entire life around and fix your hellhole routine, that's probably why she thought it would be better to duck out rather than to loudly reject you to your face.

i'll leave it at this because i don't think i'm really breaking through here, but seriously, you attract the energy you put out. if you go to cons moping over how you can't make friends, you will struggle to make friends. i know it's hard, but keep your mindset as positive as possible. again, have confidence. she clearly enjoyed your company and other people will too. i wish you luck and all the best.

>> No.10920361

You're misunderstanding, she's the one who brought up being autistic and then I used that as an opportunity to talk with her about it and such, just how she and I think, not anything about how much I'm suffering
You're projecting all this shit onto me that I literally did not do, I just reciprocated what she was saying and doing and spent a day connecting with her and then she leaves me out to dry for no logical reason
It's honestly really fucking irritating that just because I'm male I'm assumed to either be some creepy rapist or moping sperg when I am exhaustively explaining that's not what I was doing at fucking all, if anything it's all the women I ever talked to that literally cannot shut up about their mental illness or whatever bullshit that they base their whole personality around because I guess airing your dirty laundry to someone you just met (which is laughable compared to what I put up with 90% of the time) is what every stupid ass person does these days

what's the point of trying to make connections anywhere

>> No.10920516

If you want a girlfriend, then it's worth it to make connections with women, even the ones that are not single, because they can refer you to their single friends. Kinda like how having connections can make landing a job a lot easier. Come to think of it, finding a girlfriend is a lot like finding a job, lmao.

If you don't want one, then just stick with having guy friends, personally I have never been left on read by my fellow men and I can always depend on them. As a man it is genuinely so much better and easier to make connections with guys, I feel like if I wanted to I could easily form long term connections with them in a single day no problem if my friendship capacity wasn't damn near at its limit already.

Ah don't worry about it, i'm introverted and I work from home, 95% of my friends are online too, nothing wrong with having close online friends, you can even arrange to meet up with them eventually if you're close enough, bonus points if they're actually in the same area as you cause then you can just transition into an IRL friends from there.

how do I turn people I met at cons into friends? most of my online friends I met literally years ago and things just happened naturally, it feels completely different when I'm basically trying to force it and the person already knows what I look like and saw me in person (I haven't had any luck in meeting people at cons who are from my city and it's literally in the top 20 US cities by population. most of my online friends are either on the opposite sides of America or in other countries

In my experience guys at cons are WAAAAAAAY more open to being talked to, they don't have their guard up like women do (not blaming women, I understand why they do what they do).

Basically just find someone who's by themselves and looks cool to you (And believe me, finding men who cosplay but are alone at a con isn't a hard thing to do), if they're in cosplay then you can very easily start a conversation by asking them about their cosplay such as what it's from, if they like the show/video game they're cosplaying etc etc. If they're not in cosplay you can still approach them by asking them about something such as their merch they bought or their t-shirt, etc and then asking things like "So how are you enjoying the convention so far" and going from there.

The key is to get their contact, If they play any games see if you both have a game in common, then you can just hit them with the ol "Oh wow I'm playing that right now as well, mind if I add you so we can play together later?". Or if you got a picture of them just say something like "You got a instagram or discord I can send this to?" before you both leave.

Again, don't be afraid of asking for contact info, guys are waaay more open to sharing this stuff then women are. I literally got this guys discord after running into him 4 times because he mentioned he played monster hunter and I was like "Oh shit I need help beating that game, mind if I add you?"

Really it's a lot like trying to make connections with women except the guy is like 50x more likely to actually want to follow through. It's fair to say that I haven't reaaaly tried to make connections with men at a con because I do want a girlfriend, but I'm 99% certain that it's far easier to make friends with men at cons then women, as this is the general vibe I got from my brief conversations with men. This guy I got a picture of literally gave me his phone number to send him a pic because his phone battery died, I literally only met him for 5 minutes, a woman would NEVER do that.

Basically just approach and try to have a conversation, see if you vibe with each other, then try to get their contact info and then you're all set, of course you may also tag along with them for the rest of the con if they're open to that as well.

> why people keep on trying to pretend like cons are overrun with children on school trips

Major cons are not overrun with children, but smaller local cons (which could also be called meetups) often are.

> You're just feeling internally self conscious for engaging in what is admittedly childish behavior. (Kill the cringe in your heart)
> Secondly it's perfectly fine to interact with younger people on the con floor as long as it is in an appropriate way.

It’s not that I feel self-conscious or cringe when talking to younger people. Zoomers are cool, and I don’t hesitate to engage with them. However, occasionally they share experiences that are so unrelatable to me that it feels strange. For instance, they might not be able to attend a con because they don't have money or their parents won’t allow it. Issues like that haven’t been a thing for me in such a long time that I find it difficult to empathize, and it makes me feel awkward.

If you're the one who is always organising your hangouts and taking the initiative you should stop doing that. It's possible they like you but think you're going way too fast and not letting the friendship develop organically. It can be off putting for them to be placed in that position to the point where they never want to see you anymore. I've been on the receiving end of such a person (we're both autistic) and it feels suffocating. She also said "I'm happy to finally have a friend" before the friendship was mutual. That puts way too much pressure and responsibility on someone. They're putting all of their hopes, dreams and mental wellbeing on one person. I do not want to be in a position where I am the only one giving someone emotional support.

Instead of thinking "I have to message them and offer to organise something and then they might like me" you should think "we're just getting to know each other, I'm making sure they know I'm interested but I'm not going to go full speed ahead. I'll gage if they're also interested in me by leaving the ball in their court".
This is not "playing games", this is normal healthy behaviour. Relationships (all kinds) are not like video games where you pick the right dialogue and you can level up. There is no set of skills or some sort of tactic that guarantees that people want to be friends with you.

Stop putting all your eggs in one basket.

>> No.10920542

Women would love to do that. But then guys would complain "she's just saying that to ward off bad people, she's secretly keeping an eye out for Chad".
There should be a standard line of text women could use in their bio that says "don't approach me with the intent to start a relationship, I'm not interested ". But then bitter guys would message them and say "you're full of yourself, you're too ugly to need that banner. I'm not being mean, I'm just letting you know so you won't be disappointed later on".

Some partners aren't interested in anime, video games and manga. Or not to the extent they would want to spend time and money on a convention.

Don't get me wrong, of course I agree they're allowed to do that. As a matter of fact my greentext was just nothing more than a funny little story to tell, absolutely no shade towards the woman in the story, of course.

HOWEVER it is potentially shitty of their partner to leave them high and dry at an anime convention by themselves, hell if I had a partner but I wasn't into anime or video games or manga I would STILL go with my partner cause I love her, you know? That's why it's very strange to me that a woman who's taken would attend an anime convention by herself, yes she's allowed to, 100%, but it does raise an eyebrow.

It's surreal to realize some people talk about this mundane crap because they're actually passionate about it. At the same time though, it's a good reminder to not take con weebs for granted, especially the "normalfags" who don't cosplay. Do they know all the deepest lore and ancient memes? No, but they cared enough to come, which already means they're gonna be more interesting than someone on the street

This was me and two friends at a work conference we were at. Two of us were in one room and the third was rooming with another coworker who was much cooler than all of us put together. While we were on lunch, he hit a pawn shop and bought a PlayStation 2 with Star Wars battlefront 2 and four controllers thinking we’d all play together. After dinner the three of us gathered around the hotel TV and played Star Wars battlefront, and at around 2130 the fourth guy came back with a girl. They fucked on the bed while we played, and he literally said “don’t mind those guys, they’re cool and won’t do anything” and she said “I’d have been fine with one more.” Thinking it was a joke I snorted loudly and said “we already have a threesome here.” I don’t think she was joking. It was very, very uncomfortable for us and sometime around when they started round two we moved into the other room.

Found out that my estranged father is a sissy.

We're facebook friends but he has a very restricted view of my profile but he makes alt instagram accounts and whenever I block them a new one pops up. He's in hospital severely ill and i've been tasked with cleaning out his hoarder house. I found a dress that looks very similar to an AP jsk I own. It's just a gingham dress in the same colour so hopefully it's just a coincidence...

The day I discovered this I had the urge to sell all of my lolita but I've clamed down a little since.

I feel physically sick but I can't talk to anyone about this because of the shame.

I wish I weren’t fucking schizoid but I cant fucking do it /cgl/. It literally isn’t even hard and I still can’t get over the internal barriers.
I barely even talked to strangers at the con I just went to, I didn’t wanna ask for pics of characters I really liked just cause I didn’t wanna annoy the people even though I know from cosplaying that that’s like the whole point. AaaaAAAAAAA

Last emo bitching reply here but I really hate the dichotomy of these things. It’s very much not about the sex. I get there are plenty of guys motivated by that, I know one. But I don’t even want the sex. I’ve been propositioned a half dozen times over the years and I never accept. I want to make a spontaneous connection with someone I would have otherwise never met and I want to be allowed to be attracted to them. I’m around so few people that share my passions at work and though I interact with a lot of people when teaching it’s completely the wrong feeling. I want to talk to someone about their passions and be treated as an equal and mystery. And treat them as an equal and mystery. All my other relationships have such structural boss-worker/teacher-student fundamentals that I can never open up about things and feel passion. I’m just a slave in a necktie walking year after year to the gallows.
