These threads always remind me of an old REM song:
"Oddfellows local 151 behind the firehouse
Where Peewee sits to prove a sage to teach
Peewee gathered up his proof
Reached up and scratched his head
Fell down and hit the ground again
Why do the heathens rage behind the firehouse
Where Peewee sits upon the wall to preach
This boy and girl that gather pearls
Of wisdom falling from his mouth
Wash off the blood, wash off the rum"

I would like to point out that this is a problem when you are female as well. By looking for climbing guys that are at your skill level or greater you have narrowed the field of datable guys a LOT but it is hard to let go of the idea, as you want to date someone you can share your weekend and adventures with.

I'm assuming this is a generality and not a specific problem you've encountered. Living in Boulder and leading 5.7 (as your profile states) leaves about 14 undateable guys.

Eh, don't defend your MP stats. The whole score card is pretty stupid. But do realize you have a much better chance of finding a climber guy given the current glut of 'em relative to women. We met incidentally at High Wire crag a year or so ago. Pamela was with us that day.

I think most everyone's problem is our social circles are small and in order to meet someone new we have to expand them. Parties are good, but they are kind of random. I would recommend the whole goofy Meetup thing around the Front Range. There are two climbing groups that are pretty active. That's where I met my gf. She had just moved back to CO. She's also my age, so there's even room for that you old farts. Ha ha ha.

Now mind you, these climbing clubs are not going to be your bread and butter for climbing partners necessarily, as a lot of the people in them are not committed to climbing and some kind of dabble. But there are some people that are just tired of their ruts and wanted to make some new climbing friends. The dating aspect is pretty incidental, but it's there.

Pretty sure he was just suggesting that a very high concentration of Boulder dudes lead 5.7. Not saying you're lame because you climb 5.7.

These are the two climbing Meetup groups right now in the Front Range that are active.

Denver Social Climb

Rock Climbers of Colorado Springs

It's free and you just might recognize some of the people there already. I went on a group trip on a Saturday that I didn't have a partner for when I met a nice lady that had moved back to town and we got along pretty well.

I'll add that I thought Erika was really nice when I met her a while back dudes, so there you are.

You just trumped the rest of the thread, Nate. Nice!

I love that people are actually seeking and giving relationship advice on a site consisting of 90+% male, sexually frustrated social misfits. Like asking for cheese suggestions at a Vegan Summit.

I've got a hot, smart one who feels the same about me. We met at the climbing gym when I sat down to watch the idiot parade do their performing monkey tricks in front of the "new chicks" and provided color commentary for the signature moves: the grunt/look over shoulder to make sure everyone noticed, the flexing the Lat Pack and looking over the shoulder to make sure everyone noticed, and the "That was pretty easy" followed by looking over the shoulder to make sure everyone noticed. If the girl you want is looking for something different, simply being different might be all you need.

Every girl has a different key that unlocks the door, young Jedi. Metaphorically speaking, of course. Sarcasm and confidence are what got me in the door, and what I appreciate about her to this day. What works for me won't work for you (plus, you might not dig the flack from haters that comes with keeping consistent with my 'tude). I'd look up author Neil Strauss and see if some light reading helps, you'll have some laughs anyhow. Good luck on your fishing trip, throw back the ones who want your first date to be at church.

bottom line, you can't trick someone into loving climbing. you can give them a chance to try it, but you can't dictate desire. also good to remember for other asspects of a relationship, as it were.

No, no, Ellenor. I was saying SHE can spell, pointing out by inferance that this is a quality that you do not share. I was not complimenting a random stranger's basic spelling proficiency. I was satirizing your lack thearof. My apologies for being opaque.

Seriously?

Shoot, Erica, I wasn't trying to dis 5.7, I was trying to crack on Boulder a little and all the crushers up there. Sorry if my lame joke came across as an insult, leading 5.7 in Eldo is more than OK!

Oh the irony...Even those who normally do spell well enough seem to lose it precisely in that post where they criticize other people's spelling.

Though Ellenor/Elena/Mitch/snowboarder dude and any other impersonations I missed are all in a class by themselves.
