Hi everyone, just want to say how happy I am to see such a wonderful community here, and to see so many people giving such sane and thoughtful advice. I also want to let you know that I’m going to take a crack at some of your questions on my eHarmony blog, but I’m not going to explicitly say that the questions came from this page. The reason is, I think this forum works best when people find it organically, and I don’t really want to announce it to the general online-dating public since obviously not everyone is going to get what it’s about. Or, put more bluntly, I don’t want to announce the site to potential mansplainers or trolls. Mariposa has done a great job of managing the situation when it has arisen in the past, but it’s a headache and makes it less fun for everyone. Let me know if you have any thoughts on this.
This sounds great, Sara!! Thank you so much! I would love to read your take on our questions. I am also happy you want to protect this community from people for whom this is not for.
I can’t wait to read your articles :)
This sounds good to me too, Sara! Thanks for letting us know and I echo everything that Angel88 said. I’m really grateful for this space (thank you for creating it, and for getting us!) and I think your approach sounds perfect. I’m looking forward to reading those blog posts too. :)
Thanks Angel and Mariposa! I’m glad to know that sounds okay to you guys. The discussions here have been so great, and I have been wanting to find a way to address some of these things in a larger forum, while also protecting this one, so I’m glad to get your feedback on that!
