I'm so bored & lonely. This is how they rope people in, isn't it?
At least I'd get out of the house and meet new people, right? And they always shower the newbies with attention.
Sorry, we don't take gays.
Me too - I always hoped to get recruited by one of those 'fucking for Jesus type' communities.
Closest I got was with two blonde and cute mormon boys that knocked on my door once. I had wank fantasies for weeks over them.
Or you could take up a hobby and develop meaningful relationships centered around that activity.
Nevermind, that takes far too much work.
Go on MeetUp.org and find people who share your interests. If you have no interests fake it. They are usually good groups and I have had to move several times for work, so when I get to a new city I check out their meet ups. This is NOT a hook up site. This is a networking site, not for sex.
You also might want to find some place to volunteer. Libraries, hospitals, local civic groups a church. Check out whether there's an art fair, charitable marathon races, or music festivals nearby and usually they have volunteer committees to help with those events. Most cities have had to cut services so the recreation department may have volunteer opportunities. Go to the website of yout town or city and check it out.
Buy a one way ticket to Kauai. Join a commune around Molokai Bay. Pick fruit, wear dorky robes and have baby blessing ceremonies in the bay.
What's better: Cult or uncult?
If you join the Moonies, they shower **with** the newbies. Big church presence in central PA.
"I'm going to sit at the welcome table. Going to sit at the welcome table one of these days!"
R8 beat me to it.
That is all.
Find a 12 step program. Any one of them but Gamblers Anonymous has some pretty driven people. Find meeting lists online.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
