Welcome to /r/comiccon
Let me start off by saying that I am incredibly reserved. Meeting new people is definitely not a strong suit for me, and neither is dating, so when I saw the Nerd Nite speed dating opportunity coordinated by the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo C2E2I immediately thought it was a great idea for some people, just not me. But as an adult, I realize that sometimes we have to go outside our comfort zone and try some new things.
And if I can meeting 15 dudes in 90 minutes and try to make a connection, why dating a guy with a car I must also make clear that although I always planned about sharing my experience, I did not attend the session just to write about ssn. I legitimately have an interest in geek culture and the people that make it up. I wanted to meet people; not necessarily for dating, but definitely just to meet some cool people with similar datin, and challenge myself.
And now that it is over, I can say that it was SUCH a fun experience, and I would definitely do it again. I chose the first hetero session, and it sold out quite quickly there were only 15 male and 15 female slots. Once I arrived, they had a name tag made for me, and gave me two sheets of paper. The second sheet was for our own use; we could take notes, write descriptions, whatever we wanted.
The room was made up of 15 sets of chairs facing each other, which seemed a bit intimidating at first, but as soon as the room started to fill up, it online dating singapore review actually not too bad and this is coming from someone who does not swn to have her bubble invaded. We had 3 minutes with each date. All of them seemed to be very friendly, and most of them had similar interests to me.
Some were in cosplay as it was welcome at the eventand most of the others were decked out comic con speed dating san diego their geeky gear. We had no prompts on what to talk about, but most of my conversations revolved around the con, stuff we bought or were planning on buying, panels we were looking forward to, and what our favorite TV shows were. As the evening went comic con speed dating san diego, 3 minutes went faster szn faster, and by the end of the session, it felt like there was barely even time for introductions.
I ended up with only one cating match, but it just so happens that the guy was really awesome! I am hoping to reach out to him so we can continue our fairly deep conversation about POC characters in pop culture. Overall, this was a surprisingly good experience. I got some time to work on my social skills and got to meet some cool people and learn about their interests. It was definitely a fun time and full of didgo fun people!
