However, something really good happened that made me come back to CM. I although no longer a CM member, I joined the CM event, CRIreland2013 last July. I didn't know anybody but was encouraged to join because of the favorable comments about the organizers Tracy and Liam O'dwyer.
To make a long story short, I had a most wonderful trip. Everybody in the group became friends. There were some problems but on the whole we were like a huge family travelling together and having fun. (Including pub hopping in Dublin). I was, of course, the oldest in a diverse group but we were lilke a family, teasing each other, annoying each other. LOL.
But here's the thing. There was only one single man surrounded by 18 single women! But the point is, we were having a great time. We became friends. Some of us plan to be together again in another trip.
So, I'm wondering, in a family spirit, can we just have fun and be friends with whoever wants to get in touch with us and not cancel each other because he or she does not "qualify". Of course one has to make clear where he or she wants the relationship to go.
What are your thoughts on this?
