There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and yeah the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences, under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

I keep having this thought that BGG could branch out, and have a dating site within the larger site. How nice would it be for singles to find someone who shares at least one of their interests.

Beats me! That's always puzzled me about the idea the guilds will replace regional forums. Guilds are nearly invisible.

Could be useful for platonic meetings as well. Instead of "male seeking female" it could be "Twilight Struggle noob seeking Twilight Struggle noob".

There are geographical forums. I can't even find gamers, let alone someone that meets my extremely low standards to take out on a date...

It doesn't seem like there's much synergy between a gaming database with game forums and a dating site. I think you'd be better off using existing dating sites and trying to feature gaming as an interest.

I can't imagine that trying to morph into, or tack on, a dating site holds any appeal for Aldie.

Geographically, count me out as I live on a small island in the Atlantic ocean where dating opportunities are already scarce as hens teeth.

There's already a feature that let's You search for players in your area. Just look at their collection.
I just did a search and have found only males within 25 miles of my place.

So this is why the solo player guild has such a large community, there are some real singles in there looking for a companion .
What better way to spend your time than playing games with a prospective loved one.....
.....and then perhaps a boardgame.

A gamer would be an ideal date, although I would be very very hesitant to do any online dating. If you are interested I remember a site called geek to geek that was for dating.

Not for me really. It just seems like it might work in general. Maybe this thread can be the "dating" part of the site...though it's mostly all guys, so maybe not.

And like most online dating sites men would certainly outnumber women!
