are you serious?

I am no longer single but have been part of the singles threads forever. In the last 2 months there have been a number of postings asking for single women to say "yes". . .please. . .

Men, come on line on the discussion threads and find friends. Women, do NOT respond to those looking for a "date". If they have not been a part of a conversational thread, get rid of them. Just saying.

Stay safe my friends.

I'm confused...asking single women to say "yes" to what? I'm not trying to stir the pot here or anything I'm literately just lost as to what exactly you're referring to

Darcy, I have to agree with Birdman I don't understand what you are posting about on this thread. I have tried to keep up with the conversations, but they move too quickly unless you are on every night. Not as easy as the old chat room in Dismates.

Sorry guys. I understand not everyone can keep up with the threads, but you guys have been out here a while and people know you. I was referring to some threads I have seen lately by relative newcomers who do not get to know people first, they just come on here, pop in and ask for a "date".

I agree with you Darcy. I was just talking about said threads with a friend the other day. If you want to find someone who shares your love for Disney there are plenty of threads to develop a friendship or at least a conversation before you start posting that you are looking for single ladies to discreetly spend time with at the world. There is also a very nice function of most message boards know as the PM which can be very useful in communicating without the whole world knowing.

My mother once told me to be careful what you post online since it will be there forever and everyone can read it. I still think about that when I post something.

I'll see you in a few weeks. Have a great day!

Darcy, thanks for clarifying your statement. I agree, some posters appear to be trolling for a "hook-up" at WDW.

But it is not any easier being a guy on-line either. There have been women in these threads over the years that have felt that once a man has a conversation with a woman, even without any romantic inclination, then the man is no longer available.

Ahhh ok I gotcha,now, and I was in the same boat as DisneyDaveCT, its hard to keep up with some of the threads and I must've missed several posts. That being said I do agree with you then, if guys are coming in here and just asking girls on a date,and making it publicly known, without taking the time to get to know them first thats creepy..or vise versa, like DisneyDaveCT and NJDiva mentioned..theres just as many femaile creepers on these boards too. But either way, thanks for clearing that up

Talking

I'm getting more confused now. If someone comes on a thread and posts that they are going solo and would like to have someone to "hang" with, and then someone responds and says...sounds good...let's meet at City Hall in MK. That is ok? Or isn't it?

In reality, what is the difference between a first date, and meeting randomly in a theme park other than the safety of having thousands of people surrounding you. Many first dates never go past being a first date. Why is this different unless you include intent with it. If the intent is a further relationship without ever meeting the individual involved well that is not only unlikely but also sad.

I sort of see it like this. Someone, be it male or female, comes on the singles thread expressing that they want to meet with others to share the fun of Disney with, isn't the purpose of posting that to begin with to meet someone, whether it be temporary or permanent? How would one have to respond to have it be non-creepy?

Or have I missed something like...the person didn't say they wanted to meet anyone, they just said they were going solo. Help me out here!

PS...I'm not asking anyone to meet me, just curious.

I feel like you might be inferring something about my post. All I was asking is if there were any female travelers that would like to hang out in the park, grab something to eat, etc. I even mentioned there were no "expectations." I think this is even far less morally questionable than going to one of the bars or clubs in Downtown Disney, the hotels, or CityWalk looking to hook up with someone. I understand the issue with creepers and stalkers, I just think people need to understand where they are posting. Is this not the forum for adults and single travelers?

actually I don't think this was directed at you personally...please don't take it that way at all. first and foremost, we are a forum where we all enjoy one thing...DISNEY. however, there are people on the boards that see this as a place to "troll" for dates and there are some people that are new to the forum scene that don't recognize those types of people. I think your statement is perfect, you have no expectations other than hanging at the park...as we have all said, it's sharing Disney time, no more, no less. you are right about this being the forum for single travelers and adults and yes, there are relationships that have come from the forum HOWEVER to Darcy's point, she is just making sure that people are aware that the stalkers/creepers are out there and just to be smart and safe about it.
