Hi,

I had a fun date with the person you matched me with. It was a good time and even though I don't plan to take it further, it was an enjoyable way to spend the afternoon.

I recieved the following in my email and thought I would share. I removed the names as I am not sure if the people involved want this aired "publically"


i am not sure who set me and my date up, so if you can share this with the other cupids for me...i want to say thank you..THANK YOU!!!!!. we participated in the first one, that ended at the beginning of august. we went on our date and had an absolute blast...and we seem to have become...a couple?! tee hee. and i have never been happier!!


SO gratifying!!! This is the kind of email that makes all the work and all the whining and complaining worthwhile

I got some positive mail back from one of the people that I matched up too.

Good to see there's people that are making this fun and not ****ing and whining about who they had to go out with.

If you don't want to follow the rules, then don't sign up! This is for fun!

Good luck to everyone!

No problem, we are willing to give extensions when there are extenuating circumstances




There is no date for Round 3 at this time. Looks like maybe mid Octoberish or later for the beginning on sign up.

AnotherFish2006 and I may also need an extension... our schedules are opposite and really only allow us one night a week where we are both usually free...

We have been in contact though .. we'll let you know how it goes..

Hi Pond
I can say my date was sucessful, but in all truth it happened about 5 weeks prior to to the list coming out. But it's all good. It was a true pleasure going out with this gal, although we decided a while ago romance was not in our future. But we have gone on to become friends.
And i again applaud the efforts of all the "date a pond" boys and girls that did the match ups. I know it wasn't easy doing one for me, but i appreciate it all. And look forward to a great time in the next one as well.

Hey Foxy!

I would make the effort to drive up to the interior if the matches were as good as you arranged this time! Lets not have a shortage in one area make it so hard!

What a great bunch of people and what a great bunch of good sports! You and your crew did a great job and I am sure that lots of new friends were met!

Look up FF, wayyyy up...you'll see a man whose enthusiasm just spurred me into posting my thought about dipping my feet into the date-a-pond #3....It's all his fault, msg 822.
Oooppps.... back up a page to #33...lol.



I admit you have a point there fiery...the busier the better, make mental note
sign up for every event within a 20 km radius.

I don't consider myself a lurker as I've been posting on the forums and attending POF events since last fall FF.
I have been hesitant about signing up for the Vote-a-date but what the heck, I'll try anything once.
Just like winning a lottery...you can't win unless you buy a ticket.

I do appreciate all the advice you've given.

Neither of the organizers is feeling particularly motivated to be matchmakers right now.

When we decide to attempt round 3, you will all be notified.
