    I'm not encouraging or discouraging it. I just want to see how the rest of the squad feels about dating other squad members. Thoughts?

    It depends on if you can handle sharing the same virtual space and associates with them should things go less than swell.

    I was joking around on my status about this earlier. But, I say no because I would not want that to be exposed on here. I know this is a professionally run website. However, that doesn't mean all of the members are. If their is a break up-God forbid than it would be hard to share this space with each other. Especially, for the "brat Pack".

    Yea, this is def a personal/situational call. It takes a lot of self awareness to know if u can coexist should things go left.

    I can say that it is doable. I have to see my ex at functions all of the time because of mutual friends, and things are fine.

    But I can definitely imagine that it's not always the case.

    I never really thought about it. I just figured that most guys come here to communicate without the "extra". It would kind of makes sense for some members to date condidering they share some kind of mutual love for cypher communication. Not to mention there is a plethora of info on dating here to look into...Im rambling but was like hmmm, never thought of it..

    I wonder how a breakup would pan out over the forums? Last thing we need are passive aggressive posts & gif battles. Hahaha!

    There's so fiiiiiine mofos here. So I definitely can see if there's mutual attraction and relative close proximity that there's very likely been a few smashes betwixt members. Dating wouldn't be much of a stretch. Wherever people connect there's the possibility that dating could develop, even if it wasn't the intent of coming to the site originally.

    However I think because there's plenty of offline connection between some members that if there were a few people hitting up members just for hooking up, it would get around quickly.

    As long as people don't bring the drama of their relationship online, it should be fine.

    Never really crossed my mind. I really like the "camaraderie" feel of the site, like a frat. Besides, I'm not checkin' for nobody on here, and the few I would be checkin for ain't checkin for me. LOL

    It shouldn't be an issue. Our admins are smart enough to spot trouble/drama and stop it out.

    Plus, not guys here seem mature, smart, and reasonable enough NOT air their laundry here.

    I don't see an issue either. I also don't see why that would have to come up as a point of discussion if two members went on a date, had a thing, or began dating unless they wanted to make it public. That being said nobody's ever hoped in my messages, so maybe I'm ugly lol.

    It's only natural that it will (has) happened. I've had days when I've considered hitting up a member on here after reading some really thoughtful comments and thinking, "I'd like to get to know this intelligent masculine brother better." What's wrong with that?

    Not a darn thing. You never know where love is going to blossom. You never know where that "love of your life" is going to come from. This would sure beat the clubs and the apps.

    I don't see a problem with it @acessential. If you like someone, just holla at 'em.

    I would only date someone in my city though. None of that long distance stuff for me.

    As much as I hear people complain about not finding a good man, I would think that no squad member would want to shut the door on a potential great man that they may meet here. Besides that, it could be me, but I kinda thought this site attracted a caliber of individuals that wouldn't denigrate themselves or others in a public forum. Nevertheless, we are human, so I can't put evil past anyone. Lol. But I'd rather date guys here than Jack'd or any of those other sites.

    I don't see why not. Just keep it separate from the boards; everyone doesn't need to know.

    To each his own. I understand why people would be hesitant about it though. You don't want to shit where you eat. But this is a virtual setting, so you can easily scroll past their posts if need be. Even then, I think everyone is adult enough to operate in the same setting if things went south. We're not teenage girls. You meet people where you spend a lot of time. And many of us spend a lot of time here. It happens.

    ....yo, for real, you never know. There were only two dudes that I ever developed true, strong feelings for and they were both from venturing off online (one was from a god forsaken website that I'd rather not mention while the other was from OKCupid).

    Out of the guys that I've meet in real life or on dating apps, the feelings never matched up to that degree.
    [​IMG]

    But I don't think that there's anything wrong with it. There's a level of mature-ness and similarity amongst the guys on here that if things went left, I think they'd be civil and co-exist....but honestly, it's a person by person thing.

    I agree with a lot of the people on here, I think it's okay. If anything alot of you guys have acquired connections with each other that branched beyond this site and spanned into friendships im sure. And the good foundation of any good romantic relationship in my opinion is a friendship so that would be great. Plus since the initial goal isn't like that of a dating app to date or hookup, you could get to know guys in a different capacity which could allow for courtship with the right person. But it's all about the individuals and where those connections span.
