that should have said NOT all that easy for us techno-pagans.
It's a good idea in theory, but a lot of unsavory types lurk on FR. In the late summer last year, I had my picture in my profile page and had a creepy incident with a lib lurker.
I would urge people to be careful when posting personal pictures.
Oh, absolutely. I’ll place that at the top of the thread.
The No Longer FReeping Alone forum is still there, but not very active.
I think the bigger problem is that FReepers got out of the mode of actively FReeping in person, once President Bush was in office, especially after 9/11 and the support the troops FReeps. Hard to be social with other FReepers from behind a computer. The Tea Parties might offer some opportunities to meet fellow FReepers, but we need to get out there among each other again.
When you start the thread, make sure to include instructions for posting pics. I’m a computer illiterate, so make them very clear!
Try being a Blue Collar Conservative in Pittsburgh who enjoys cigars. They look at me like I came from the stone age when I go to vote, since I think I am the only Republican in the Southside.
I got busy - moving, dating local Air Force Special Forces and have finished unpacking, and AF has packed off for parts unknown!
I relate to the comment about “long distance” relationships though. Am never going to do that again, as it allows people to say anything about themselves and I have no way of verifying any of it, if 2000 miles separates us!
Impossible. Be careful what you wish for. Just sayin'.... ;-)
I agree ... you can never have too many friends, and different geographic areas make any chance of a relationship not impossible, but surely tough.
Problem also is that many FReepers leave their home state off their profile pages.
I think it’s a natural that single FReepers look to opposite sex FReepers for friendship and romance. You just can’t have too many conservative happy unions around, plus many of us who aren’t 32 just don’t know who/what to trust, don’t go to bars, or known single gathering spots, etc., so to me FR should be a great place for like minds and hearts to connect.
Re - Post #92 - did not know about that, either. I think it’s a great idea for a Yahoo FReeper singles board .. let’s see if there’s interest in getting get it going.
Whaddya think, anymouse? It would be a “safe” place, real dialogue and sharing could occur .. and pictures. I think if people felt comfortable in a relatively trustworthy forum, they’d share pictures. And, as others have said, a picture is meaningful .
Time for some fun and maybe even a little romance .... never too old for that .. ;)
It basically folded through lack of support I was one of those who was responsible for it when life got to hectic for me and others to continue it especially for the few posts we got each week we sort of wound it up but I for one am always willing to reconsider as long as I have support and help
To me the technique sounds very similar to Yorkshire Pudding with that you must put oil, meat fat or dripping in the pan first and heat before putting the batter in
I am definitely up for a singles thread as there are slim pickings for conservatives in Key West.
