    With all these threads lately on relationships and meeting people and where to meet intelligent people, etc., I feel the urge to facilitate some match-making here. :tongue2: Afterall, how are all us PF geeks going to find our perfect mate if we don't even know who's available?

    So, here's a poll to find out. Your responses are anonymous, so if you're in one of those single and available categories, please share who you are if you want to meet another PF geek! :biggrin:

    LOL! Since the poll limited me on numbers of categories, I realize over 30 is a rather large age range, but I thought it more important to separate out the young'uns so us old-timers don't end up in jail going after minors. :biggrin:

    I should answer too...I'm also in the over 30, single, willing to consider a long-distance relationship category (it's pointless to worry about anyone local since I'm hoping to move again within the next year or so).

    Well, i guess it is true every thread you encounter/make is turned to sex (not always the horny thing, but you know) :rolleyes: Not that its a bad thing of course :biggrin:

    Single, under 18, and not interested here.

    I propose a seperate category; I'm taken but don't really see myself in the "married or committed relationship" category! That's just a bit full on. How about a "currently taken" button?

    That's the last choice...single but not available or not interested.

    No it isn't.

    I'm not single, but I'm not not interested!

    If you're not married, you're single :wink:. Technically, committed relationships are single too, but people usually think of them more like marriage. I probably should have explained that better in my first post. I would consider it a committed relationship if you're living together or engaged, basically everything you'd be with a married person except having an official document saying so. Mostly I included it there because people nowadays don't always get married even though they are in a relationship very similar to marriage.

    My last category is intended for those who are not married, not in a marriage-like relationship, but have a relationship or are otherwise unavailable or uninterested in finding someone else.

    Edit: Or, I can solve the problem this way...just read that last category in the other possible way: (I'm single, not available) OR (not interested). Not interested doesn't have to imply single. Does that interpretation work for you? :wink:

    Oddly enough, I considered that possibility. That's why the married category doesn't say anything about being unavailable or not looking. It would also apply, I guess, to someone who is technically still married but separated or going through a divorce. If they are interested in PF geeks, they can post and share that (or wait until the divorce is final and choose one of the single categories). :rofl:

    Besides, someone open to cheating should probably handle that somewhat discreetly in the event their spouse checks their computer and finds their responses here, so they don't get a category to themselves. :wink:

    I'm sure I'll find something I overlooked in creating these categories, but I tried really hard to include something for everyone.

    Moonbear realised that so many PF members are into sheep, that she didn't distinguish between sheep and humans.

    Carry on as normal, but don't wear your velcro gloves on your first date.

    Nah, it's just so they can't get away.
    It's the Welsh anyway, not the Brits. :smile:
