    Maybe in the case of the boy/boy and girl/girl lines, give them each a number as they come, then have odds sit and evens mill around.

    Bisexuals should get to go twice! The reason we're bi is 'cause we don't want to choose :P

    well one doesn't choose that's now how...

    I think it's bi because bi means two, which is befitting of that whole going twice thing XD

    This sounds like a cool idea. I wouldn't mind checking it out.

    Have a certain area where you have boy x boy and girl x girl, that way there isn't a guy hinting on a girl that is interested in girls.

    another thing that I don't know if it's been addressed is whether or not this is going to have an age requirement, or like, splitting up people into age brackets?

    I've done the speed dating thing in the past, and i loved it, so I would definitely do it again if I go. I really hope I can go, but we'll see what happens. But yeah, I'd totally love to participate. :)

    I predict that it will be. Not only that, but I predict that the vast majority would only be going for the fun of it, meaning those who expect something serious would be in for a rather unfortunate surprise.

    I agree with you. I think this should be taken seriously though, some people might want to have a date or something and to go then be let down because most took it as a fun game it could be depressing for someone to get heir hopes up. Some might do this for a date or for fun. It is called a game but still, you know what I mean?

    I would be one of those who take it seriously because I want a chance at getting a date in general

    Well, given that we can't very well create lines for: guys, girls, gay guys, gay girls, boys of this age, girls of that age, boys who take this seriously, girls who take this seriously....

    >_<

    Basically, I mean, unless you really want to have some sort of labeling system (like maybe a colored flash card that indicates whether you are serious or not?), I think the best way to think of this is to, you know, simply be yourself. I mean, who knows? It's totally possible for two people to go totally not thinking anything would become of it, but maybe after some conversations things work out? I mean, that's kinda life ye?

    It's certainly an interesting idea, this event we're speaking of. I know I won't be attending though. Not so much because of "Hurrrr, sausage fest!" but more because of the constant busyness that is my work schedule during peak-con hours that something like this could happen.

    Bit of a shame, I kind of like meeting new people.

    I totally agree. I've never been to a speed dating event but I think if everyone gets a card they can fill out like looking for friends or dating,
    and age that way even if you don't connect with someone to date or don't want to it will still be fun.

    At a previous con I signed up for that Anime Dating Game, thinking it was for real. I didn't realize until after it was over that it had actually been some sort of improv sketch comedy type thing, and there were no real dates to be had. How disappointing...

    That's why we say to act 70% in character. If it were a dating game where the end result is a date, we wouldn't do the whole in character thing. About 40% of people who've been in the Cosplay Dating Game are already in a relationship.
