How about a meetup where we simply sit around and discuss dating

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • We are not without our challenges and forming a group to discuss these challenges might help people evaluate how they date, how they act in a date, and discover what they want out of a relationship. As much to see how others feel about these subjects we also look inside ourselves to answer these questions and hopefully overcome our various demons. - :)

    How about instead of arguing on downtown or up town we can have 2? There isn't a limit on how many meet ups we can organize. Just a thought.

    We probably should decide a place and time soon... Otherwise by the time we eventually meet up, we may be too old to get dates... Then, we really will just sit around and discuss about dating and not dating. LOL.

    What about Lambadina Resto Lounge (Ossington & Bloor)? Was at an event there tonight and the atmosphere would be GREAT for an event like this one. Intimate, nice chairs, and doubles as a performance venue.

  • Jason W.

    Sounds cool. You just need to figure out a date, place and time. Find a pub or something with access to TTC. As for the topic, I'm kind of shy about dating and asking women out, so I've never really been on a date before. I'll be intresting to hear the different points of view.

    August 4, 2012

  • Jason W.

    Yeah sure, I'd love to attend. Don't know if I'd add anything to discussion.

    We better make a decision soon; formerly we were 36 and now we are 30... we have lost 8% of members interested in this meetup...

    Yesterday I went to High Park; it is a nice place to have a meetup. I agree with Brian, what we need is consensus on a date... what about on Sunday July 15 at noon?

    July 1, 2012

  • Brian

    Guys, im not quite sure what is going on based on the last number of comments but some of you need to calm down and stop getting annoyed over trivial nonsense. High Park is the chosen venue for those of you who wish to come. All i need now is consensous on a time and date.

    You refuse to answer manny emails and then you get messages trough this site not paranoied just don't understand someone not understanding no is no and the upsesion with complete stranger, sorry this last message on this as warning to change everything if you save picture from this site

    Warning to everyone apparently if you save picture from meetup in name of picture is meetup site and your personal id from site ( I put picture like that on dating site big mistake) then anyone can find out your groups you are intrested in and anyting that you are intrested because of your family or kids ( that's when it gets kreppy) person on dating site emails you details of your life and about your child that you never shared with no one ( you email only to find out how they got info )

  • Alex R.

    It's OK Sylvia, I recognize your right to be "concerned about my behaviour" which seems to you "as stalking" as I recognize my right to be concerned about your behaviour which seems to me very paranoid.

    June 29, 2012

  • Alex R.

    Am I "tracking you?". Just check this: Connecting All Canadian Singles in the GTA Group: Alejandro Ramos/Member since April 2, 2012. Sylvia/Member since June 15, 2012... just because that coincidence do I have the right to say you started "tracking me from one to another Meetup Group"? Again, everybody here is free to sign up any group they please.

    June 29, 2012

  • Alex R.

    Sylvia, with all respect I never, ever meant to put any private grievances or dirty laundry. Seriously, what is that you find "dirty" in what I have written? Besides, everybody here is free to sign up to whichever group they want to join, myself I am member of 20 different groups just like you are member of other 20 groups and it is a coincidence we are members of this and other two groups.

    Emails from dating site I think I do and to post here things( private) instead even email from here showed me that I should be concerned with your behavior(looks to me as stalking),please if you can don't post private things for everyone to see and nothing to do with this meetup, you have email and if I decide not to answer that is my prerogative, and my choice however it is not other peoples bussines and shouldn't me broadcasted here. Sorry everyone for doing this I had no choice, but answer.

    Alejandro sorry this is not place to be putting private grievances and if you want put here dirty laundry to everyone to see so be it. If person from dating site starts tracking you on another site and starts signing up for meetups I signed on just to keep tabs on me ( I don't know you, and did not even talked with you, just few emails) that dose not sit too well with me, as probably would not sit well with many people. So sorry that you think that I have no reason to not answer your constant

    June 29, 2012

  • Alex R.

    Uh, uh... formerly we were 36 and we are 33 now; we better make a decision before it's just two of us here... I'm voting for High Park too.

    June 28, 2012

    A former member

    I agree with High Park. Now let's setup a date!

    June 28, 2012

  • Alex R.

    You know, all this discussion has been on my mind all day long and my conclusion is that Sylvia is right; as human beings sometimes we are selfish and only expecting our own gratification from others... whatever the location you choose is fine for me, I don't drive but I will do my best to be there "just to have fun and meet new people" just like Sylvia said.

    June 27, 2012

  • Parviz

    I suggest Erindale park (in Mississauga), Centenial Park (in Etobicoke), or High Park

    June 27, 2012

  • Brian

    Okay guys, decision time. Carol's suggestion of high Park seems ideal to me. Everyone agree?

    June 27, 2012

  • CC

    Yesterday I suggested that we meet at High Park. It's in the west end of Toronto and TTC accessible, etc., etc. Does anyone have any objections to that, or any other suggestions?

    June 27, 2012

  • Alex R.

    OK, somebody please suggest a location in Brampton/Mississauga/West Toronto for those of us living in that area.

    June 27, 2012

  • Alex R.

    Something funny just happened on my cel phone... Suddenly a new window appeared telling me this event was on Wednesday, December 31, 1969 and 34 members attended...

    June 27, 2012

  • Alex R.

    Good idea Parviz, the question is, who's gonna organize it?

    June 27, 2012

  • Alex R.

    Oh, uh... and now we are only 34...

    June 27, 2012

  • Parviz

    The solution: have a similar west-end meetup group. Anybody for it?

    June 27, 2012

  • Alex R.

    We must admit we are getting better, now we are only 35 members here with 35 different points of view and not 36 members with 36 different points of view...

    Of those signed up: 26 are from Toronto (Between Etobicoke and Scar), 6 are west of Toronto, 3 are north of Toronto and 1 (me) is east of Toronto. Many people that live in Toronto do not have cars and would be unable/unwilling to travel to Mississauga/Oakville to an event like this. Attendance at a central location would likely attract more attendees due to the demographics of those interested. Understandable if the west enders don't want to come in .. but why the continued chatter ?

    June 27, 2012

  • Alex R.

    I'm sorry but I really needed to speak my heart.

    June 27, 2012

  • Alex R.

    With all respect and in the most positive way (because I really appreciate you Sylvia) I do agree in most of the concepts you have posted here about dating but sometimes it is so hard for me to understand you; dating is impossible when while trying to build a nice, true friendship the other person just leaves you with no apparent reason and cuts off any communication with you in such an unfair behaviour.

    June 27, 2012

  • A former member
    A former member

    To do it for somone we like or love. That's why dating is so hard and no surpassingly dose lead to nowhere. Just my opinion and I am too guilty of that. However I am trying to work on it so in spirit of cooperation I owe Torontonians apology for not being more flexible and understanding, we all should be happy to meet each other no matter where. Let's just have fun and meet new people :-)

    June 27, 2012

  • A former member
    A former member

    To everyone that was following this exchange about place, it is thing like that that showed us why dating is so hard ( no compromises, make me happy, the other person should make me happy).
    I found out great relationships start when two people give to each other. 110 % without expecting nothing in return however if the other person dose thesame they each make everyone happy. If we all had in mind to be nicer to each other and go out of our way just little for strangers it would be no big deal

    Ok guys I did offer to help and not run things if this group is only for Toronto then change to Toronto in name of group and I am out, sorry I sign up for GTA I am in many Toronto groups and really not need another one, FYI there are groups in Mississauga and Brampton so it is not big deal you guys choose location you want :-)

    June 27, 2012

    Since we have established that we are doing 2 locations, how about we stop bashing Toronto locations. FYI, Toronto is not only downtown. There are plenty of other locations with plenty of free or cheap and easily accessible parking. Traffic is only horrendous if you want to travel in during rush hour.

    June 26, 2012

  • Parviz

    I also find parking is expensive and scarce and traffic is horrendous.

    June 26, 2012

    A former member

    I don't mind driving to mississauga but I find parking pretty expensive and not very accessible in Toronto and not too familiar with Toronto.

    June 26, 2012

  • Alex R.

    Two locations seems to make sense...

    June 26, 2012

  • CC

    I had the same thought, Ed. If a consensus can't be reached as to a single location, then it makes sense to have a Toronto location and an alternate westend location for those in the burbs :)
