Actually meeting up

Are there people on here who are really interested in getting together?  We are talking just some simple, no pressure, drinks in public to get to know each other, maybe make some new friends that might or might not lead to more at some point?  

We get it if some people just want to be friends online, look at the pics and get a little thrill just talking about it, but there has to be at least a few couples that would be interested in at least a night out right?

 

 

 

Who would be up for going to see Bobby Slayton this Saturday at the Larimer Square comedy works? We can meetup before or after the show for drinks.   

Just for the sake of posterity: we have successfully met people through this site.

There are a lot of factors to consider -- schedules, chemistry, age gaps, etc. -- which definitely narrow the odds. Sexuality is a very personal thing for many people, so getting past the point of just being curious to actually trying something can take a lot of effort, so that also narrows the odds. Information available on profiles varies quite a bit as well, and some people are pickier than others ... the reasons for not connecting with people are numerous and complex. Some people are looking for relationships and chemistry, while others just want other bodies to add to the pile; people in the former camp not only have a harder time finding what they want, but are also harder to engage with; neither position is right or wrong though, and to each their own.

You'll find the right people eventually if you're persistent and respectful. We personally talked about expanding our sexual horizons for years until we actually did something about it, and were able to find the right person to help us take that step.

But, yes, we understand where you're coming from; sometimes it seems like -- even after you've met with people for that initial ice-breaker -- that you're waiting for the stars to align. There are plenty of fake profiles which pop-up too, but Robert does a pretty good job of deleting them.

We agree with your points.  We just want to make sure this isn't just a fancier version of craigslist, where it's mostly fakes with the occasional real people that are either just into the talking/picture part or are the way hard core types looking to ad another notch on the bed post.  Not that there is anything wrong with either of those thing, but neither of them help us on our journey of making some like minded friends.  Which is what we would like to do. We move to CO about 4.5 years ago and would like to have some adventure partners.   

So we'll keep at it then.  

I'm interested in doing the same going out, dinner drinks maybe something more later. Anyone free this weekend?
