Hi and welcome! I've moved your thread over to our "Chit Chat" forum which is the place for personal threads like this, and introducing yourself to others.

I'm not a very good "CR buddy" (I do most of my conversing about anime and manga in the forums) so I'll pass, but I'm sure others will take up the offer!

Greetings and welcome.

You will find that a "best guy and best girl" tournament has just begun in the Anime subforum, and in fact you've still some time to make nominations!

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-912833/-the-2015-midyear-best-contest-gender-fusion-edition-

General chatter and friend making efforts should be directed here:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-878691/-2014-summer-autumn-best-girl-contest-and-subsequent-loitering

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-912753/-tourney-chatroom-directory-

The first discussion thread will be dying once it hits 10,000 pages.

i find those threads hard to get into. the conversations are dominated by a few ppl, makes em less inviting imo

oh and welcome

Yeah, I get that. In this particular case something that I think helps is if you start off participating in the "Best contest" for a few days -- it's a more structured thing where there are some very clear ways (voting and campaigning) that you can participate without having to have an actual conversation, and then if you lurk for a bit and start piping up some in the discussion/chat threads at least people will recognize your name and you'll start recognize them and know a little about them and how they interact, and that can make it a little easier to get comfortable.

Personally I tend to lurk pretty extensively before I feel comfortable starting to post and the lurking helps build up my comfort level and and feeling like I belong. But I guess that might not be the best strategy for everyone, or could make some folks feel even more like outsiders the longer they lurk.

Definitely with you on that level Lorreen, just made an account a few days ago and i'm actually doin the exact opposite. I'm rushing head first into the fray... f r a... yeah and i'm tryin to run into as many people as possible. I figure if your outgoing and be yourself you really can't go wrong. I mean why do we all come here? CONTENT

That being said i'm glad to chill with all you lovely people, HA! >:D
