Just a short note to thank all of you who have participated in this group. There are almost 700 members, and we've had 36 events in the past year!
But, unfortunately, as you may have noticed that there haven't been a lot of events recently. I have been too busy with work and various other things, but this is your group too, and it would be great if you can help organize events. I may be able to help, but am too busy right now to promise anything.
Some of the best locations for interesting singles events:
1) Vancouver Art Gallery on Tuesday nights has a pay by donation every Tuesday evening, so no need to pay $20.info
2) South Granville Art walk, just stroll around the galleries. info
3) Burnaby Art gallery, free. info
4) UBC Museum of Anthropology. I will be first in line when they finish the major renewal. info
5) The Bill Reid Gallery in Downtown. A hidden gem, and one of my favorites. info
6) UBC Botanical Gardens, and check out their new tree canopy walk. info
7) Van Dusen Botanical Gardens. info
8) Science World on False Creek is great for kids. info
, especially for perhaps a single parents event.
9) Triumf is Canada's leading research facility for particle and nuclear physics, and has regular public tours. info
10) Pacific Cinematheque - has classic and art films. info
And there are a lot more ideas ... I am going to post these sites on another website soon.
So please help keep this group going.
Also, I am always keen to get feedback on my website for online dating. I keep hearing about the problems with online dating, so I thought that it is time to try to do something better. I've worked in the software field for fifteen years, so I know that technology can be used to create great applications. However, I am not sure if I have achieved it yet with my site, mostly the problem has been that not many people know about it, but I am always looking for other ideas to improve it, and would be glad if you check it out. It's 100% free, just like POF.
It's called Brainiac Dating
, but don't let the name put you off. It's a good name, and it's so hard to get a good website address these days - so I was happy to get it. But anyone can join the site as long as they want to meet interesting singles and can figure out how to fill out the registration page.
Well thanks for reading this far,
and hope that with your help we keep this group going!
