Talk About 'Suitability'­ in Relationships....


A few weeks ago, we got into a very interesting discussion about relationships, which led us into the topic of 'arranged marriages'...which in many cultures means 'suitability'. .why they work more than traditional marriages..or do they?

I'd like to talk about what that means to you....not in terms of 'arranged' relationships necessarily, but relationships in do you know/feel/believe what is 'suitable' for you.

Does the word/concept 'suitable' remove all ideas of romance and true love for you? Do you care? Would you rather have 'stability' and 'dependability' vs 'chemistry'?

I'm very into this subject these days as I navigate the social waters as a single woman, wondering...who is right for me (and vice versa)? Would I ever allow anyone to choose someone for me?

How do we ourselves choose the people we partner with? Via our minds/hearts/intellects/families/culture/religions/past personal history? All of the above?

Join us for another night of fun conversation that usually spins into all sorts of side-topics:)

Hope to see you there!

    A fun night out. Very good food and drink(I have a new favorite beer)nice dinner companions and pleasant conversation. The background noise was a bit much, but not insurmountable. Thanks, again, Beverly, for organizing and letting me decide to attend this event at the last minute-again. ;-p lol

    Bev, if the number of participants can be increased to 10 or more it might allow for more people to participate.

      Hi Raaed...good idea...I just increase the # and hope everyone who wants to attend is able to...see you then!

    If the # of people interested in attending an event comes to exceed the # of available spots & I'm still undecided about attending, I think it's only fair to drop out. I agree with this group's policy of limiting attendance for optimal results.

    Hi, I just joined. This up coming event sounds great. I'm on the wait list. How will I be notified if space becomes available?

      Hi Deb! If a spot opens up, meetup automatically updates those on the waiting watch for emails!
