I’m going on a date in two hours. Wish me luck!! It’s a nice day where I live so I’m thinking we can bring our coffee outside to sip and sit in Adirondack chairs and it’s along a river. The coffee shop is right next to the waterfront
I’m so nervous for some reason.
Thinking of you now and hoping it's going well/was fun!
I got involved in Meetups and other activities that interested me. This included getting involved in community theater, something I’d always been interested in but never had done. I ended up not only finding out I have acting talent but also meeting the love of my life there, quite a surprise because many men in theater are gay.
I have started doing Meetups for my hobbies but I haven't transitioned to trying to meet people in that way. northstarmom in your opinion, do you believe people are looking for "more than friend" connections in Meetups? I have not gotten that vibe at all but admittedly I've only been to a handful of meetups. Maybe I should take off the old wedding ring for a few of them to see if the conversations change.

Cincyguy, I have been to several "Meet Up" sessions. What I saw is, if you are in the top 10% of date-able people at meetings you attract attention. Average Joes or Janes do not get noticed much. I think the women at the meetings are looking for top notch guys and if you are average, they will wait until someone better comes along.
It could be I wasn't signaling that I was looking to date. A third thought was after a brief chat with a woman that she or I decided we didn't have much in common.
Thank you everybody!! All your luck worked. We ended up spending two hours together talking, sipping coffee and then walking and talking. If anything he could be a friend maybe more. This was my first great date. I went on a few before not so good ones.
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
lanie: Hello, new here.

worksforme2: My apologies to you baz and your fellow Australians for sleepy Joe forgetting PM Morrisons name...he forgets names on a pretty regular basis. Ask Scott not to take it personal...

baza: Scott is eminently forgettable so don't worry. Jimmy Carter did the same thing in the 70's with our PM of the time, Fraser.

worksforme2: I made an appointment to get my booster shot for Covid19. I had to answer all kinds of security questions. Never thought that an imposter might show up and try to get my shot.

worksforme2: UPDATE: Booster shot try failed...The booster was a Pfizer. My 1st shots were Moderna, so they would not give me the Pfizer booster. Looks like I'll be waiting for a while.

jerri: worksforme2 member h Probably has some sort of trojan horse on his phone/computer and it is acting up. I know when mine needs to at least be restarted because I will send the same text multiple times when I only sent one.

worksforme2: Trojan horse you say...I thought the Greeks chopped that thing up for firewood after they conquered Troy....looks like maybe someone repurposed it....
