Hello out there. Just like the title says, I’m debating whether or not to attend this year. I’ve been a fan since around September of 2014 during the long hiatus between Seasons 4 and 5. I’ve been following the show closely, enjoy lots of fan content, music, all sorts of stuff online, but I have never been to a Bronycon of any kind, he’ll have one ever been to one other con of any kind period.
I’m pretty anxious and nervous on deciding if I wanna go or not. I don’t have any friends in the fandom, or have never interacted with any in the fandom irl. The main reason why I’ve been debating to come whether or not is because it’s the last one, so it would be my first and last one, least at this convention.
It’s often tough for me to interact and meet new people, so I’ve been going back forth if I want to attend or not. Money and expenses of any kind is the least of my worries, but I’ve loved this show and fandom as a whole since I’ve been involved with it. I just don’t know if it’s for me, but it’s been such a huge life changing part of my life, and I’d hate to pass on it, even if I don’t have anyone I know or have ever interacted with will be there.
It’s something I feel I wanna do, but it’s just kinda stressing me out if I should go and how will explain it to people around me. I’m basically hoping to get some input or feedback from people attending or who have been to one of any kind if this something I would regret deeply not attending, what I could expect, or any advice at all.
Expenses are no issue at all, it’s just deciding if I’ll enjoy myself and if I should/shouldn’t stop stressing about what the people around me will think when I tell them I want to go and what they would think upon my returning from it.
