XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

Looking round at our local session there are about 20 regular players; of those half come as couples or have their spouse /partner join them at some point in the evening. It made me think that a session is a really good place to meet the person of your dreams ( or nightmares).
By the same token there may be a lot of ‘golf widows’ of the musical variety or relationships that may have succumbed to the temptations of drink, but overall it must be a great place to meet like minded people of the opposite sex.
I am considering approaching the ‘web meister’ with the suggestion that he could add to the Session menu, as well as Events, Tunes, Shop etc, something like ‘Take Your Partners, Doh See Doh’, as the portal title for the musical dating section of the Session website.
Then in the chat room we would be seeing things like.
‘As he played that B part, I came over all a quaver.’
or
’ My heart when off in triplets as soon as he walked in the door.’
There also one quote where ‘crotchets ’ come into it but it’s on the tip of my bow and I can’t quite think of it.
What do you think of the idea?

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

if you find yourself attracted to fat ugly old men, then you would be spoilt for choice at most of the sessions I go to.

seriously, sessions are full of fruitloops and dogs. ive met perhaps 5 people at sessions who i would let play on my twanger.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

My pipes are flat now. Too many folk have tried to blow them.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

When I was Younger { not yesterday } At the fleadh’s the musician’s played music and brought in all the Girl’s, The punter’s ran off with them,, while the Musicians where still playing tunes - lol..
Only the odd smooth talking Bodhran player was successful, because she wanted to try his Thing - ( Bodhran that is ) — lol…

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

Jim, could you do me just one small favour? Could you just stop using apostrophes? Ever? All these superfluous ones are giving me a headache.

[I mean this lovingly, and as a serious suggestion.]

Correct

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

Only you didn’t call them "punters" Jim ๐Ÿ™‚
Equally bad was the musician turning up with a new non-ITM girlfriend. Musician disappeared into the midst of a hot session. New girlfriend got fed up being ignored and disappeared with a hot punter. Ah those were the days ๐Ÿ™‚

Prediction: After seeing the comments on this thread, the webmaster will be completely convinced that opening a dating section on this website would be a complete disaster. He has enough problems with the discussions as it is,,,

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

Good luck then Jim!

But honestly, just don’t use them. It’ll be cleaner at any rate, and more often right than wrong.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

Hmmmmm…
..not sure sessions are dating agencies. Thinking of the regular set; two long-established couples, some people I couldn’t say for sure, one musician I’ve never seen his partner, one whose just getting over a divorce/separation….
…I think you have to find your partner outside the session and introduce them gradually, to see how they take it. I wouldn’t guarantee any matchmaking within the session at all.
Now, the local YHA group, the one I remember they used to say it stood for Your Husband Assured. Personally I lost my fiancee there, so much for the promises…..
Ah, well. Found another on the Underground instead.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

I found mine in a Rambling Club.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

if it’s sessions at fleadhs then yeah go for it ;) Coz they attract young musicians a lot :P

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

Hmm. Found my significant other on a caving trip. Bonus was that he played guitar; understands jig rhythm.

You can’t predict where you find the keepers.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

Could you define the keepers a little more explicitly.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

What? You want to use the site as a dating website? But it is full of utter fruit loops. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

No - I didn’t mean that. I Ithought you used the word ‘Keepers’ in a poetic sense, and was just interested in your meaning. Perhaps I’m reading things that are not there.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

Lady Chatterley had fun with her keeper!

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

And Nellie the Elephant !

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

"Found my significant other on a caving trip…"
Same here, except she lived in a disused mine.

Are there no single young lasses out there into Coors and spoon players?

How sad, and yet —-

Nednog-
"keeper" as in one that you would keep by your side as a companion. However, on reflection, he has functioned in other keeperish sort of things. ๐Ÿ˜‰ NOT a sugar daddy, mind you. Ahem.

This thread has pulled the usual collection of off topic random dribblings you boring b@stards.
There is plenty of room for a mustard introduction page.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

what’s with the five x’s. I always thought it was supposed to be four.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

McKnowall, it’ll be tough to find a classy lady who will hang around with a cuss who starts the first sentence by calling people names.
Perhaps there could be a section for some shmooze coaching where folks can learn proper classy dating behavior, kinda like a Mustard Cotillion manners workshop.
It could a great benefit to the overall atmosphere worldwide . ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

[Tries to visualize a Mustard Cotillion]

[Fails}

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

Oh c’mon it’d be highly beneficial as well as entertaining. Imagine our surliest of Mustardahoovians dressed in evening gowns and tuxedoes stumbling over each other to exhibit only the finest of respectable behavior. The world would shift on its axis.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

Lovely image, Boatpiper. Sort of like I imagine Civil Engineers behave - standing there in their hard hats, going "Oh, after you…I insist" etc…

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

I didn’t say anything about classy, but owning a pub would be acceptable.

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

Wonder if there’s a site where you can meet others obsessive about correct apostrophe use? ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: XXXXX The Session As A Dating Agency XXXXXX

I hate dressing up. The last time I had to wear my "monkey suit" (suit and tie) was when I got married many years ago. I refuse to "monkey" around again unless I absolutely have to.
