So you've been talking about singles and you don't want us to find out about it?

I don't know why you would gather that from belles post?

If a man stands in the middle of the forest speaking and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

Thank you for your appreciation! I feel like its Purim!

How do you see the site developing differently due to the change in membership? IOW, how do you feel the former memberships' lack of a RL social life affected the content or tone of the site?

It feels like this is an attempt to paint me in a corner to say something negative about the current or past membership. I don't have the answer you're looking for in terms of how the new crowd will be different than the old one. But people who will come here as a result of print media may be different than those who happened upon this site. If this run can make H.com a place for people to 'want to be' instead of something they hide from their friends, it can be big.

Hope that helps a little.

Who do YOU think, as a member, we should be targeting for new members?

Nobody. Message boards are so 2003-4. You're not going to make this place happen. It's not going to happen.

If it helps, I don't intend to push you into saying anything you don't intend. All I'm curious about is clarifications to what you do intend.

Personally, since you asked, I'm not a big fan of targeting any specific group - I think something should be done to try to increase contributing membership, but not by targeting a specific group, since one of the things I love most about Internet discussion boards is the variety of people joining the conversation. If I want to talk to a bunch of people like me, I can do that IRL despite my admitted social awkwardness.
"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

-Mark Twain

We're still getting new members.

And some groups of Jews are 10 or more years behind. So that buys me some time.

Good luck with that. Only weirdos are on message boards. Normal people are on FB. You just can't compete.

Um maybe because she posted personal information she doesn't feel comfortable with a wider membership flood?
There is nothing about other members in the ac so its pointless even talking about this.

But if we got engaged we'd get in, so who's to say that the singles on the site aren't within a month of getting in anyway?

Okay.

Come with me
Stay the night
You say the words but boy it don't feel right
What do ya expect me to say (You know it's just too little too late)
You take my hand
And you say you've changed
But boy you know your begging don't fool me
Because to you it's just a game (You know it's just too little too late)

So let me on down
'Cause time has made me strong
I'm starting to move on
I'm gonna say this now
Your chance has come and gone
And you know...

[Chorus:]
It's just too little too late
a little too wrong
And I can't wait
But you know all the right things to say (You know it's just too little too late)
You say you dream of my face
But you don't like me
You just like the chase
To be real
It doesn't matter anyway (You know it's just too little too late)

Yeah yeaaahhh... It's just too little too late... Mhmmm

[Verse 2:]
I was young
And in love
I gave you everything
But it wasn't enough
And now you wanna communicate (You know it's just too little too late)
Go find someone else
In letting you go
I'm loving myself
You got a problem
But don't come asking me for help
'Cause you know...

[Chorus:]
It's just too little too late
a little too wrong
And I can't wait
But you know all the right things to say (You know it's just too little too late)
You say you dream of my face
But you don't like me
You just like the chase
To be real
It doesn't matter anyway (You know it's just too little too late)

[Bridge]
I can love with all of my heart, baby
I know I have so much to give (I have so much to give)
With a player like you I don't have a prayer
That's no way to live
Ohhhh... mmm nooo
It's just too little too late
Yeaahhhh...

[Chorus:]
It's just too little too late
a little too wrong
And I can't wait
But you know all the right things to say (You know it's just too little too late)
You say you dream of my face
But you don't like me
You just like the chase
To be real
It doesn't matter anyway (You know it's just too little too late)

Yeah
You know it's just too little too late
Oh, I can't wait

[Chorus (fading):]
It's just too little too late
a little too wrong
And I can't wait
But you know all the right things to say (You know it's just too little too late)
You say you dream of my face
But you don't like me
You just like the chase
To be real
It doesn't matter anyway (You know it's just too little too late)


The world has too many stupid people who are full of confidence, and smart people who are full of self-doubt.

Actually, many of the people I hang out with on MBs are people whose work computers filter out FB, so they eke out basic communication in this primitive and antiquated format. (Tin cans and string were also banned) Plus, there's no need to fend off spammy requests for game joining-in on MBs.

That would be very nice. I think what makes members uncomfortable is the thought of many new members flooding in. Its a personal area with a lot of private information so it could feel like being exposed or whatever the right way to describe it is, whereas with a gradual one by one addition to the ac, then the new members come in a trickle without it feeling like the door was swung open.

Thats one reason. There may be more.

Thank you SO much!
Can you describe the kind of person we're looking for?

That doesn't mean that this place is going to happen.

Because?

Too late for this site? Or too late for any message board?

Hardly anybody goes on message boards, and the ones that do are not in your target demographic.
