Last night I met with a group of area singles at a local tavern. I didn't know what to expect beforehand but I enjoyed myself thoroughly. Mostly we talked about non-dating subjects. We discussed "Brokeback Mountain" and whether the guys would go to see it. (Most wouldn't, no surprise.)
We also discussed getting together on a monthly basis for activities. Many helpful suggestions were raised. One fellow proposed a sailing outing. We could all pitch in to rent a big sailboat for a weekend and take off to explore the deep blue sea. Others proposed movie nights, twister parties (while viewing "Brokeback Mountain" (when it comes out on DVD), bowling, etc.
We compared notes on our experiences. Two people had actually exchanged emails online and had planned a meeting which the guy had called off at the last minute. There was quite an interesting discussion as to what had put him off. Soon they were going at it like an old married couple.
We tried to come up with a group name but left without an accord. I suggested Mattapoisett Singles On Line. (MSOL) Who knows if we'll have a second meeting?
