Here at REGINA Magazine, we thought this would be an opportune moment for a temperature check with US experts about where Catholic families start – Catholic dating.
As the 78-year old pontiff is famously open to new technology, we’ve asked Anthony Buono and Rose Ferguson of the online dating firm ANTHONY: Mainstream online dating has been respectable since took off around 1998.
Relationship status was part of the entire social networking experience, not the main focus.
That made people relax about meeting someone online, and without their even knowing it, they found themselves paying more attention to that relationship status.
I would like to post a get together with the pof as a night out on the town but maybe you will come and then maybe not but we have lots of fun at these things the get togethers that when you plan a get together you are in another venue and it is not plenty of fish I am saying is the meat market I am aware it is a sinlge's site it is the bars that are noisy and meat markets so they are and there is very few places in Regina that people can meet and have the allowing of being able to still talk and not have to deal with all the drunks and stuff some people are not into that so we have to be fair and considerate of all I agree about the negative vibe Li Xia - I know last fall there was a bbq organized by a group in Moose Jaw area - unfortunately I couldn't go as I was out of town..
then recently there was something about a bus trip to Winnipeg to hook up with the Wpg group .... Would be interested in something if there is enough interest..... From the event photos on their website it appears that there is a range of ages who attend and that it isn't too formal (although they do costume events, meh). Has anyone heard of another group called Minus One?
Yes it is summer, and people tend to spend more of their days out doors rather than in front of their computers looking at date sites, but I am sure there must be some intrest out there in getting out and meeting other singles. Perhaps something along the line of New Quest's suggestion of a pre-event followed by hooking up with the Contemporary group for a dance. I don't know Regina very well in terms of venues, amenities etc but would be willing to help with putting something together. I have no idea how to let all the singles from ages 35 know about it, so if someone knows how to post it in the upcoming events....
Maybe what is needed is a thread that clearly lets others know a list of events that are going on. I've been to Mc Nally's once and it was very loud and very crowded and it was a night of yelled conversation and getting bumped by drunks. I'm not sure how to go about this...I've grabbed the bull by the horns and have set up a forum telling about a POF social on Nov 21/09. Maybe there was a stigma about meeting someone online for many people, but privately they must have loved it because became huge and never looked back.ANTHONY: No, but I really believe Facebook made online relationships “normalized”.Location/Date/Time/Theme/Age Groups/Costs/Dress Codes and so on. Events can be planned on any thread, but once one has been planned out, it needs to be place in a events forum. There'd be nothing better than getting away from the bloody computer. In order to ensure equal numbers of men and women at our events, everyone must register in advance.I've been to the dances, so I can "run them down" if I want.
