I suggest, that every member of AN, who is single and looking, should indicate this in the profile and encourage others to initiate contact.
Lonely people, who hide their search, have not much chance to be contacted.
That is why I think it should be brought more into people's awareness, that AN is not only a forum for discussing, but also a good place to look for a partner.
An additional option on the profile, where someone not only can actively choose age, gender, location, but also 'single and looking' would people encourage to be explicit, if they want to.
well I think we'd all have to approach Brother richard to get this done.
