I am thinking of setting up a singles night for the 55+ age group in Shropshire as there does not seem anything for us I personally would rather meet people face to face , as like many others I have had a couple of unfortunate experiences with dating sites so thought if I could go to a singles or "speed dating" night perhaps it might be easier, but as I say there appears to be nothing so thinking of setting it up myself. Does anyone think there is a call for it, has anyone been to one to offer advise to what do you think???
I've just joined this forum. I live in Alberta, Canada where we have very cold Winters but lots of sunshine. I've travelled quite a bit and I've lived in UK, France, Angola and Canada. I'm only a few years off retirement and I am looking to meet people with similar life experiences. I'm agnostic, I am interested in art, travel, the great outdoors and a good book. I am not a hippy but I am tired of the consumerist world we live in where we are constantly force-fed commercials every 5 mins (if you live in North America, you will know what I mean). I am also disheartened by all political parties as they only give us the illusion that we have a say on how countries are governed and I am particularly very saddened by recent events in the US that are dragging the country back 70 years into the past. I am recently divorced (not looking to make THAT mistake again :) ), I am a positive person, I don't like to whinge and I think life is too short to waste time feeling sorry for yourself. Looking forward to striking up a good conversation :)

Why do people lie when compiling their profile for a dating website? What do they hope to achieve? I have recently read two profiles in which the person (male) has been either economical with the truth or has exaggerated accomplishments which he hasn't got. In one profile the writer, who I know, has suddenly acquired hobbies such as canoeing and rock-climbing. In all the years I have known him, he has never been near a canoe or even a rowing-boat for that matter - and the gardening and cooking - forget it! As for the rock-climbing - he is afraid of heights! In the other profile the person says that he does not have children - yet on a different site he mentions a daughter. I know that we would all like prospective partners to think the best of us and possibly be the ideal match BUT is lying at the start of a relationship a good idea? I think not - which is why, although I occasionally browse on these sites, I have never been tempted to join. Odd spells of loneliness are much preferable to mistrust and the more outlandish the declarations, surely the sooner the truth will out. Now, where are those ropes and crampons ;-) Oh, and by the way, I'm sure that women lie just as often as men - don't want to appear sexist!
