So far there are 15 available men but only 9 women and none of them are commenting. Now that Hell has frozen over, anything can happen.

I just wanted to vote but if you show up at the coffee shop, I'll talk to you.

What a team!

Do we have any wedding planners on the forum?

I'm not paying for the steam cleaning of Rich's RV.

I would love to decorate!!!! I can also do event planning and I am really good at sweet talking with vendors for a great deal!
I have also learned how to bake bread from scratch, so I could make the rolls.
We can blow bubbles or throw shredded junk mail instead of rice!

the lazy muscle mobile is normally reserved for legalized gay marriages but this low mileage car will gladly be made available for e-r forum members' commitment ceremonies under the condition that no cans be tied to the bumper and no sexual activity take place inside the car which might be deemed offensive to the gay community.

I would volunteer to play music, except I don't play for sad occasions, like funerals and weddings...

Frankly, I don't much care for weddings either and I've been married 34 years to the same guy. We got married by a justice of the peace and have never regretted not having a big wedding. There was one wedding we went to I really did enjoy. The couple was Greek and there was lots of drinking, music and dancing. They really know how to party!

Single and available, but on hiatus from looking. Long story...

As an almost 40 (yikes!) female, my planned "year of non-dating" is remarkably liberating. Although I have gone on a few dates, when asked, my passiveness in this area is quite freeing for me.

I'm trying to remain a confirmed bachelor. Thankfully a complete lack of interest from all the women I don't know yet is making this pretty easy.

I suggest an ER Forum singles weekend. All of us non-singles can live vicariously through the photos and reports.

Maybe a Club Med trip.

Club Med?!!!! That is too expensive! How about a Skype teleconference......we could speed date and if we like anyone, we can meet them in person.

This made me realize the poll is not PC in that it doesn't include all belief systems. It should have had an option for "married male looking for another wife"
