Heh. You know what? You made me reconsider.Just go anyway, it will be an entirely different experience for you. The ones we have annually are very small, like, 50 people, tops, the ones you have are a few thousand. Try not feeling socially awkward when you go to your first con with only 50 people and with no one you have actually met. Was fun though, had a lot of events, the food was great (we had on site chefs). But when some started getting a little creepy and started talking about sex and whatnot I thought hell naw, I'm here for the culture, not that culture.
I haven't got a problem socially or anything. Meeting people is fine with me. Even if a bunch of pervs say hi to me, I'd be able to keep a good conversation going, but it might not be the kinda situation most people wanna find themselves in.
All part of the experience, I guess. I'll go to one sometime in the future, even if just for a taste of what it's like. Even if I feel out of my depth in weirdness, it'd be fun.
