A thread for our single friends....

After talking about the guy I met while at WDW OrlandoMike mentioned I should start a thread for all of the single 'mos but I had to keep it clean!!! LOL

So here goes, I really have no idea what to put in here

I just find it really hard to find a guy in general then mention the fact that I LOVE Disney and it goes downhill from there. Why is there such a stigma on loving Disney? Oh yeah being here in Canada doesn't help matters much.

It's so funny when all my girlfriends keep saying "We'll find you someone", sure you will. The last guy they suggested I go out with turned out to be a complete liar and broke my heart.

So anyome else? lol

I've gotten strange looks from guys before about my fondness for Disney, but then again, I've also gotten them when I talk about some of my other obsessions (um, make that "passions") -- Buffy, Harry Potter, etc. -- so perhaps I'm simply strange by conventional standards.

YTeah it's funny if you really like something out of the "norm" you get the weird looks.

So, since I'm a fan of all those "obsessions," I have to add one more that should definitely be on the list...GOLDEN GIRLS!!!

I've got my Disney obsession, my musical theater/theater obsession, my Buffy obsession, my Harry Potter obsession, and my utter love of "Repo! The Genetic Opera" which next to no one has heard of. And people wonder why I never get a second date. Course, I rarely get the 1st one either.

Thanks for creating a thread for us singles

I've had luck in my last two (and only two!) relationships. Both bf loved Disney, so I didn't get the dreaded "look". I know it sounds a little cliché, but some day, my prince will come! I'm certain about that hehehhe

I've never had the pleasure of experimenting DW with my significant other, so I hope that during my next relationship, I'm going to be able to do it. Especially if he's never been there. It'd be perfect

Oh yeah! Just like you guys, I kinda dig Harry Potter, The Golden Girls, Buffy and Angel You could add the Twilight series of books also. And do not think that I like 'em because of Robert Pattinson (who plays Edward). OK, it might've helped a bit

I'm going back to DW this June. Could be fun meeting any of you there!!!

Hmm I find it funny how Buffy also seems to be a recurring theme here lol. I'm not really into ahnything other than Disney, hallmark ornaments and the simpsons. Love the kingdom keepers book but there are only 2 of them.

And if you keep on believing the dream that you wish will come true.

I love Celine, who else? She's from Quebec, so gotta love her I went to see here in August, when she was in Montreal. Loved every second of the show. They are going to put out a DVD of her "Taking Chances" tour, so I'll be the first to buy it.

And I also like to sing the High School Musical songs. They're fun! And I also like to listen to the radio...anything pop will get me groovin :P

I love Celine but refused to pay $300 for a ticket!! My first real concert (saw Beyoncé for free in Toronto in 2006 I was so close to her I could've hit her with my camera lol) was my ultimate group from my childhood.... SPICE GIRLS and that was a $225 ebay ticket. I have Celine's las vegas show on dvd and OMG hot dancers!!!!!!!! I'm Posh btw

I love The Simpsons. The new ride at Universal was sooooo much fun!! One of my favorite Chirstmas traditions was going to the Hallmark store and picking out one new ornament for that year. Usually whatever new Disney or Wizard of Oz ornament was out that year. Woo for similarities!!!

I'm going to have to go with the "classics" of divas - Whitney, Madonna, and Cher. I saw Cher in Concert and she was amazing! I think I prefer Madonna and Whitney from the 80s - they're just way too crazy drama nowadays.

Oh, and for any muscial/broadway fans, I highly recommend the Legally Blonde the Musical Soundtrack. It's really fun!
