I'm always at conventions by myself.
Well, my mom is there of course, but when she isn't with me, I'm by myself.
Despite knowing some people and having friends there, it's rare that they tag along with me or I tag along with them, because they always either have their own previously assembled group and I simply don't want to intrude. So yeah it can get sort of lonely, not having anyone to hang out with at conventions, but hey it gives me leeway to travel to different areas quickly and not have to worry about losing one or more persons in a crowd.

I did, until last year. It is SO much better with friends.
Try to find a group of people going, and even if you don't know them, ask if you can hang out with them. If they say no, go find some more people you have something in common with (eg, cosplaying from the same anime)

well I'm lucky my GF went with me the first time....and never again since then lol!

but I know what you mean, you just need to be brave sometimes, outgoing and talk to people. Sometimes people stop you for a photo and you talk for a bit and maybe hang with them.

or arrange to meet people from the forums at the event. I've had good success with this, or off deviant art and met people from interstate before

I went by myself the first night. And yes I had these troubles, but that was all solved when my character's name was screamed out and a very energetic homestuck cosplayer hugged me and had me join her friends. (I was not a homestuck char, Lucy from fairy tail infact)
Just put yourself out there. Say "No matter what I will not hide, I will go see the panels I want to and have fun. I will get pictures with the cosplayers I like so I can remember them forever. I will enjoy the f*** out of this." Keep telling yourself this and you'll bump into SOMEBODY that you get along with and hang out with. ((I met people in lines too, you have nothing else to do for a few minutes yeah?))

Yeah...I hate going alone. The friend(s) I usually hang out with don't want to hang out no more now but back then when we went to cons, they always wander off leaving me alone.

Though, I have friends I met from the series I cosplay as so it's cool I guess.
