O.C. 25-39 Set Up Your Own Practice Dates!

PRACTICE DATING!

Orange County

AGE RANGE: 25-39

This Meetup group's age ranges are

18-32 .  25-39 .  32-46 .  39-53 .  46-60 .  53+

Please RSVP "Yes" for the age range(s) that best suit(s) your preferences.

PLEASE NOTE: The date and time shown above do NOT mean anything. Your actual practice dates will occur whenever you wish!

What is a practice date?

A practice date is a date that you go on not because you’re romatically interested in your date but because you’d like to get some dating practice!

Maybe you’d like to overcome your date nerves; maybe you haven’t dated for a while and you’d like to ease back into it gently; maybe your dates never seem to work out and you’d like to find out why; or maybe going on practice dates just sounds like fun to you!

How Does This Work?

1) RSVP "Yes" and pay a one-time-only fee of just $2 on-line. (It's free if you join today.)

2) Find someone on the list whom you'd like to go on a Practice Date with.

3) Send them a message asking if they'd like to go on a practice date with you.

4) If they say "Yes," then work out a time and place to meet up with them on a Practice Date!

To make things simple, we recommend that all practice dates should take place at a Coffee Shop (perhaps a Starbucks or Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf) in a well-lit, safe neighbourhood. (Coffee shops are invariably very safe, public places.)

After the date, if either of you requests it, the other person can email some CONSTRUCTIVE and POLITE feedback about how the date went. This will allow one or both of you to learn from your dating mistakes and build upon your dating successes!

(Practice Dating is not a system for finding you people to date properly. However if your date goes well, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t both choose to meet up again!)

If you'd like to give Practice Dating a try, please RSVP "Yes" now!

(You'll receive an automatic confirmation email from Meetup.com with the wrong date and time shown on it! Please just ignore that!)

Thank you and good luck!

    Hey all, I just joined the group a few minutes ago.

    I'm interested in trying out a practice date. Never done this before but saw it and felt like being adventurous. I recently shaved my head bald, cause I felt like it.

    If you have trouble finding me when we meet up then you need only look for the glare of the sun shining off my head from a mile away and listen for people screaming as they go blind from gazing upon my glorious bald dome. Easy as pie... not as yummy though :(

    Anyway, send a message if you want a practice date, or if you want to give me large amounts of money for no particular reason, or if you know the meaning of life, or if...

    Clearly you can see I have no lack of talking... It's better for practice that way. Or was it better for wanting to gouge out your ears when I don't shut up? I can never remember which one it was. lol...

    But no, actually I don't talk much. I'm a pretty quiet guy. Not verbose. Not me. No sir. Errrr... ma'am... allegedly ma'am...

      Sure. Thank you for your interest. We can just meet somewhere about half way between us and the driving distance should be too bad.
