    Event specific dating apps ought to become a thing. Rather than speed dating at the event, try to connect with someone and plan a date ahead of time during the event. And it takes the pressure off the date as well, because if it ain't there, you just say alright well nice to meet you have a good con! And then you can maybe even set up another date if you are legit trying to find someone with this shared interest.

    But yea, speed dating at a con, I don't know what would be worse, my actual pitch to someone, or if someone actually fell for my pitch.

    There was a web series on youtube called Geek Love, and its about the guy who came up with the Speed Dating thing, running a program at NYCC. I dont know if the larticipants were really like that in real life or were told to geek/nerd it up for the cameras, but the participants for lack of a better term were obsessive about their fandom/tv show...

    The worst thing would be getting matched up with @ChrisLyne.

    You know, something like that could work. Maybe they could even have like a social or meetup for people qho use the app like the day before Celebration starys so you can get to know the other person so hopefully you can meetup later throughout the con..
