Why does there need to be a seperate "dating area?" The campfire section is for all things off-topic except for the no-no's stated in the guidelines. What is to prevent someone from posting a "Looking for Love" thread? All this discussion about something that isn't prohibited is pointless.
If there is someone who wants to find out if there is anyone on the forum interested in getting to know them (romantically) , then they should just post up. There's no rule against it; so why do they need "permission"? Just do it!
