I keep seeing adverts for this forum- has anyone ventured in?

Less?
Against my principles! 😴 💤

Thank you lisa. Do you know anything about it?

Lisagran Fri 24-Jul-20 07:13:23

No, I just googled it on seeing your post! It looks a bit “dating site” to me?

Ignore my comment, Marydoll, I think I was just tired when I looked at it last night! grin

Were you looking for a date, Lisa? 😂

Looks as if it may be a rival for GN. I shall have look later.
Then again, there is nothing like GN!😁

I just had a very quick look, choosing their 20 Fun Things to do Online link and prepared to be cynical.

There are some intriguing suggestions on there. Looks like I might have found another way to fill up the free time I haven’t really got. smile

I think I have inadvertently provided free advertising for them! 🤣
I hope I get commission. wink

Get your claim in, Marydoll! smile

And kittylester, of course. smile

MrA followed the link the other day and was alarmed to find that he had been automatically ‘registered’. He then had to work out how to unregister himself.

Personally I find the very name of the site off-putting. I’m one of those who since retirement, wonders how they ever had time to go to work. There are still not enough hours in the day.
I have to actively quell the pangs of guilt I feel if I sit down during the day and read a novel.

Haha I thought this was about Restless leg syndrome 😂😂
I ll take a look

NO! Marydoll. I think I’d looked at the Community section and there seemed to be single people introducing themselves.....
I’m easily led......
