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.
