Though I haven't used it, my wife has made several good friends through groups that use meetup.

There are few entertaining adult web services. But I'm working on a no pornography commitment.

There are few dating ad services but I won't pay for them.
wait are you saying you have to pay for the dating groups on meetup?

or are you just talking in general?

not really looking to date just yet.

I'm trying to focus on letting go of Internet porn and kick the habit for good.

But meetup.com is not about porn or sex. I'm looking to see what use I can make of meetup.com right now to find opportunities to network with other professionals in search of my next job.

My most recent posting absence of one week was for a road trip I took after my job ended. I needed a vacation.
