Yo sup pwnys. I have a few friends who I'm trying to convert to bronies/pegasisters but one of them said "I watched the first two episodes and wanted to kill myself". Any advice on making people's lives better?

From what i've seen most people don't usually get converted on the first two episodes (I don't know why i loved them) but most become bronies on the later episodes so tell them to watch more.

First 2 episodes weren't the best, I agree. Maybe show them the fandom a little bit? That's what converted me... kinda.

It took me a little longer, up to like episode 10 or so before I thought...wow this is freakin AWESOME. So yeah, just have them watch a little more.

This is the same situation I went through. I do agree, for some people it'll take a bit longer than the first 2. Consider the first 2 episodes the gateway, and the next few the actual path to bronyism.

Also, I'd like to add, if they do end up not liking the show, don't shove it down their throats :|
Respect their opinion, love and tolerate :)
No one likes getting "things" shoved down their throats. My sister tried to force Twilight on me. So I know how it feels and it isn't very fun.

Depends. Some girls to call themselves pegasisters, others believe that brony is a unisex term.

Nope, I honestly think of the term "brony" to be an unisex term. Pegasisters just doesn't sound fitting to me. But I suppose its all about preference.

Why don't we ask a girl? Oh wait I am one.
90% of female bronies that I've met prefer to call themselves bronies instead of pegasisters.

I watched the first 4 and was hooked after 4. Personally, i like the first two episodes but they are really, really corny and predictable. Not the best to start out with.

There was a poll on EQD about the episode used to convert friends over, i think. i also believe s1ep8 - Dragonshy was the one used the most. I'd have to look again.

I watched the whole series front to back (which at the time was all of season 1 and nothing more) over the course of about a month. I don't know when I got out the "denial" stage and embraced my bronyism, but I do remember my family first finding out about it after my brother walked in on me watching "Dragonshy" when the tab loaded just a tad too slowly for his eyes. Seriously, that kid has the eyes of a hawk.

But anyway, I don't think I've converted anybody, but I have exposed people to the show. Some of them in real life, some of them over the Internet. Some of them even asked me to recommend good episodes for them. But I don't do anything "insertive". I just be my brony self and if they ask questions, I answer them.

I was a brony before I even watched the show, but as soon as I saw an episode, I was truly hooked on the show.

I love Dragonshy episode!
and Brony should be an unisex term

my friend won't let me change my terming from me being a pegasister to a brony.
Its like, "Oh you won't understand. you are not a brony..."
aah well.

So IDK.Show them a few pictures of ponies and the Dragonshy one.

or the "fluttershy YAY one...?"

I liked the first episode of season 1, and became a brony/pegasister/whatever ever since~!

I also try showing my 12 yr old brother the episodes too... well I watch them with him. then I end up watching them by myself xD
But there are some episodes I would show, but you would really need to know the characters before I showed them...

No, I'm not an RD, more like a blend of all of them, primarily Twilight.
