    *He delightfully drove out all the way from Corona in order to attend this -thanks, Will!
    *He didn't bring a laptop; I reminded of the importance of this,for all mtgs &esp for this mtg on dating websites -we would be checking them out!
    *He said he was looking into polyamory for him & his wife. Indeed his a member of all 5 active Meetup polyamory groups in this area.
    *Since we were talking about Polyamory dating sites, he cooly shared his OkCupid profile http://OkCupid.com/profile/Will...­ --yeah, Will! I compared mine http://OkCupid.com/profile/Sabe...­ , and indeed since OkC allows any pairing, we rate high:"81% Match, 41% Friend, 15% Enemy"!

    Bill http://meetup.com/OC-Polyamory/...­ attendance&review of this.
    *My good bud Bill came at my request, thanks Bill! It was also a good drive for him and he's normally not into romance except as far as intellectual discussion of it.
    *To my surprise (as he always brings his laptop to our http://Meetup.com/OCAndroid­ meetings) he didn't bring his laptop, thinking this mtg not on tech wouldn't need it. But, like the event description says, we do need laptops, indeed he really could hv helped me projecting the various web pages in my talk on Poly dating sites. So he promised he would bring it for all next meetings.
    *Thanks for coming & ur support, Bill.
    *U&all,RSVP(&hopefully saying YES!) for our upcoming mtgs, esp tomorrow eve http://meetu.ps/vXz8x­ -love to see u!

    michael http://meetup.com/members/36133...­ (who Meetup now mis-hides as "A former member") attendance&review of this.
    *He had RSVPed YES early here at my suggestion as he might attend and also to help build attendance for this.
    *About a day before he told me he probably wouldn't be able to make it. I responded as I would for anyone: to update his RSVP here saying so. But he hadn't gotten around to it that, which would then qualify him to be a no-show, but since alerted via other ways AND was trying to build attendance by early RSVP, I let it go & count as just bot-attended.
    **but because he is now "A former member", Meetup will incorrectly now not let me correct is attendance.

    Steve H. http://meetup.com/members/68225...­ (who Meetup now mis-hides as "A former member")
    *RSVPed YES&attended,his 1st event w/us &1st Id met him.
    **He said he'd known of me already thru a unstable gal I dated DB http://meetup.com/members/88988...­ &considered dating her,2,but hadn't.
    *Didn't bring his laptop.
    *He seemed2enjoy the mtg but was quite worried about others on Meetup finding out he'd joined a poly grp.
    **He announced he deleted my Greet 4him(&w/o asking me 1st,violating http://1.JotHere.com/3975#MHGM0­ ) cause 1 of his buds saw it so asked if he joined a poly grp&he denied.
    **This was also why he unusually hadn't shared his pic on our grp.
    **I said Id take his pic&privacy concerns seriously,just work w/us. He agreed.
    *But within a few days,instead&w/o a word, he subsequently quit our group unexpectedly & w/o any explanation I know, also violating Due Process(instead do http://1.JotHere.com/3975#MHIA3...­ )&no replied2 my SMS.
    **Saddens me,but some just can't be helped.

    • DestinyArchitect

      *last time http://meetup.com/OC-...­ , we were scheduled at Whole Foods in central OC but we got very low turn-out
      *So this time I've now scheduled this at Paradise; pros-thru-cons:
      **Notable Pro: the venue supports poly! The owner welcomed & hosted & is hosting our Showtime's Polyamory screnings, started with http://1.JotHere.com/...­ ; also one of the cashiers, when I talked w/her about it then, is partial to poly.
      **Notable Pro: OCAndroid just had a great mtg there http://meetup.com/OCA...­ & is set up to continue to there
      **Pro: No conflict on our scheduled time 2013.01.08tue per http://meetup.com/Irv...­ and http://paradiseperks....­ and owner says Tue-and-esp-Mon are most free.
      **Small Pro: Not quite as central OC but not far from it

      *Amanda answered&took the reservation for us
      *for currently for the 8 PEOPLE RSVPing YES SO FAR (though she said they should have room for more)
      *she says they will put on the table "Reserved for OC-Polyamory".
      *I gave her the times +our event short-url http://meetu.ps/q0Wzx­ .
      *She said she he hadn't heard of "polyamory" before so I welcomed her to "Check out the URL; it cd save ur romance life :-)".
      *She also suggested I email the reservation to the venue [masked] (which goes to the owner) but says the owner won't need to do anything here as our group is small. So in moments I'll email a link to this comment.
      *WE'VE GOT A NUMBER OF NEW FACES! Lkg fwd to seeing everyone!
