I go to anime cons pretty regularly. Though my group usually splits up to go do their own thing, I rarely walk around by myself. Usually it’s because at least one other person with me wants to do the same thing as me, but also because I just like to have someone I know with me. I’m kind of shy, and pretty introverted, so I don’t really like talking to strangers all that much at cons. If I’ve got a friend with me, especially if I’m standing in line for something, I can just talk to them and try to look busy, so that hopefully people don’t try to start up a conversation with me.
