In spite of the ratio at meet-ups, I recall a woman making a private observation to me that she would have been interested in such individual events, but when she found out in advance that there were going to be like 20+ women there and only two guys (confirmed) she said she too just decided to stay home.
When I first joined this site a few months ago (thinking that the ratio was like two guys to every gal) I had no plans to participate in group meet-ups. I might reconsider, but the event needs to be more than just a couple of hours of drinks and social babble.
I have no interest in discussing pop culture, favorite TV shows, obscure movies, people's favorite drinks, etc... hope folks can get my drift. Men like action, especially here in the NW, and I am not an exception.
If you had come to AZ in April you would have gone to a baseball game, gone hiking through the Arboretum and gone hiking and jeep riding in Sedona. There was no time for "social babble and drinks", except maybe while driving to Sedona, of which there definitely was no "drinks". Of course we "broke bread" together and if that makes you uncomfortable I guess you could have stayed in your hotel room and ordered in.
All I can say is "get out" and please don't assume that a CM event is a couple of drinks and social babble.
