It would just feel sad going to some event all alone; thats what's been holding me back from going to a con.
totally understandable, especially if it's your first con. after going to a few, going alone isn't as daunting as it initially sounded. but as a first con, that can be intimidating to anybody.
it depends on the con and con-goers, but it can sometimes be rather easy to meet/make new acquaintances and friends at a con. even when you know nobody, there is one thing you know, everyone who you see is there because they enjoy anime.
if you ever make Anime Weekend Atlanta a destination of yours, i'll be there
