So it's this time of the year, summer is here and concerts in my town getting fired up.
There's this artist I really admire and it might be my only chance to see him live, so I totally don't want to miss this chance. However, all of my friends (both male & female) flaked on me when I invited them. Some flakes included ridiculous excuses but I guess that's another story.
In essence, apparently I'll be attending to this concert by myself but as you can relate, I don't want to stand there alone and be the creepy solo fan-boy.
I was initially frightened by the idea that I will go to the concert alone, but now I figured that it might present amazing opportunities.
Soooo, I want some advice how can I approach people, not just girls but also guys, I want to meet with new people, have fun in a group setting and what not. Of course, I won't exclude pick up in this search but it'll just be icing on the cake.
My first thoughts on approaching was something like: "Uh hey, I think I've lost my friends..." so that the group wouldn't think of me as a "creepy lonely dude". (heh )
Any ideas to improve this opener above? Any new ones? Mindset suggestions? My overall game?
FYI: The concert will be held in a festival setting, consisted of various DJs, artists. Open air. Will last at least 10 hours. 18+ and will be filled with people around my age (I'm 19). No alcohol allowed.
Edit: I just thought my opener could be a bit flawed. The response to that would be: "Why don't you just call them?" Then I would have said: "My battery died." but that wouldn't make any sense because there will be phone charging booths in the area and sticking with a different group for 10 hours just because I've lost my friends? Doesn't really make sense, LOL.
Thanks in advance guys,
