Speed dating at comic con
I chose the first hetero session, and it sold out quite quickly (there were only 15 male and 15 female slots).Once I arrived, they had a name tag made for me, and gave me two sheets of paper."Yogis of Anarchy" will be led by actors Charlie Hunnam and Ryan Hurst of the crime show "Sons of Anarchy." Hunnam and Hurst will give an introduction to Kundalini Yoga, which is described as a mix of "spiritual and physical practices" that involves "movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras," the release said. Among the celebs fans will get a chance to meet are Brian Baumgartner, who played Kevin Malone on the popular sitcom "The Office," who will be available for autographs and photo opportunities, according to a news release.The star will also host a Q&A alongside "The Office" co-star Leslie David Baker, who played Stanley Hudson for nine seasons.And if I can meeting 15 dudes in 90 minutes and try to make a connection, why not?I must also make clear that although I always planned about sharing my experience, I did not attend the session just to write about it.I legitimately have an interest in geek culture and the people that make it up.
All of them seemed to be very friendly, and most of them had similar interests to me.
Let me start off by saying that I am incredibly reserved.
Meeting new people is definitely not a strong suit for me, and neither is dating, so when I saw the Nerd Nite speed dating opportunity coordinated by the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2), I immediately thought it was a great idea for some people, just not me. But as an adult, I realize that sometimes we have to go outside our comfort zone and try some new things.
Attendees can sign up for LGBT or heterosexual sessions.
Trivia brand Sporcle, which has an office in Southfield, will host live games with topics including Disney, Harry Potter, '90s pop culture and more.
