I've heard those kind of single meet ups tend to attract way more women than men - and that often the men are in a relationship and looking for a side
Maybe try making it some focused event - idk, like Trivia night with cocktails and snacks
Less pressure

^^^ I've heard the opposite....more( way more ) men will show up than women.

Thank you,

Having a population of around 800 people, everyone has a good idea who is married and single, they just don't know who is looking.

I would really hate having only men or women show up, unless that is what they want.
Plus I wouldn't want too great of an age difference between everyone.
So I think I will have to regulate a it somehow.

I am almost thinking of 2 hats.
One for the men and one for the women.
With a couple questions to help sort it out.

For me this is a tough one to organize, so if anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.
Ya,....Get a female involved in the planning and setup asap. Or things could get weird or people will think you are weird. The playing field isn't even in reality as you probably know.

I swear, the last time I was on POF most of the females were just fake profiles.
Careful of that fish you catch...be sure it's not a Siren, and that it's okay with being released.

Oh man, I tried internet dating like....7 years ago? I had some chick with bright pink hair (The pinkest of pink!) send me a message along the lines of "You look like a pretty hot dude...lose the beard!"

So I wrote her back "Maybe I'll dye it pink!"

aaaaaand that was the end of that conversation lol! [icon_lol2.gif] :130:

The politically correct term is Unique now, and I got that part nailed :biggrin: [icon_lol2.gif]
Don't forget, I am an artist whom can also drive.

They judge people differently here and love me for being myself.
I was their second driver choice. The first one was Too Normal and didn't work out because of it.

Good advice thought.
I do have a lady volunteer, already. Although she isn't single, so I don't know how that will work.
She really wants to see my other friend find someone.

I tried online dating. Nightmare pics and comments.
I’m a little old fashioned. Wonderful personality and has my *bleep* together. But I can’t find a nice, sincere man who wants to enjoy the simple things in life. Camping. Fishing. Relaxing. Someone with morals and ethics. Sigh.

I think they are out there. It’s hard to find. I think deep down I want to believe that falling in love exists. It can happen. I’d like the opportunity to meet someone 😊

It'd be nice if Hollywood was honest about relationships ... there are good guys out there but most of the time not on online dating sites ... I met my wife on POF but boy did we win the relationship lottery after that debacle ... I don't think I'd go back there ... and while guys are literal richards to the women on many sites like that it's not easy for the good guys either ...

I want kindness. I want softness. And crazy silly fun, and adventure. I’m … different than most people. I do my own thing and am not one to care about keeping up with the Jones. Life is so short, I want to keep working on my bucket list.
I confident and comfortable to be on my own, but I really would like to know what it feels like to be loved by someone.
