    Every wednesday at 10 am guys in Roxas City knew which beach resto there would be anywhere from 2 to 8 guys meeting for coffee & conversations. I am wondering if those exist in Dumaguete and could we list them out here. Decent information would be like who usually goes..what day of the week..where and what time. There are days when I'd like to just bust outta here and go talk some english..lol If there was a list of guys,days,times and locations it would be greatly appreciated by me..and Im sure others.

    If there are none.. anyone interested in starting one .. or a few? Also if there is none we can kick around locations.

    Lets see if we can keep this on topic. I promise that if I want to comment to one person .. I will use a pm..we can all do that right? .


    .Note to self : Talk to Larry about creating a Wall of Shame for cronic fail personalities.

    Let me add to those that would add groups that they are not part of but see and list them here. Well knowing your trying to be helpful but its not.. mainly because I have pushed my hand out with a smile on too many occasions and drew it back fast as it felt like I was going to be bitten.. Im sure you get my drift. Nasty guys that have nothing good to say anytime and sit in judgment get out that with their own kind so they can pass judgement on who ever walks by..Knowing nothing more but the clothing you are wearing..they will know who and what you are !..nah..dont bother sharing them..

    Thanks for considering

    Dumaguete has such a place, check out the old McDo's. Disclaimer: not my cup of tea

    I don't think I am picking up on that drift. My reading comprehension is slacking today. I'm not sure if you want us to share groups that we know meet regularly or if we should just keep it to ourselves.

    I think he is trying to say, recommend groups which you know of and which are decent. Much like recommending a hotel which you have stayed at so that you don't inadvertently list a rat / roach infected hole.

    This goes both ways though. I'm generally hesitant to invite people I don't know into my social groups unless its a public activity such as a DI meeting. That might be your best bet, organize another DI meeting.

    I have my friends here and I generally know where they go. I'm not part of any formal groups. If I'm meeting with someone at a specific time and specific location, I want for it to be focused.

    Otherwise, I would just get out at different places and talk to people. Explore the city. That's the best way to go about it. Foreigner owned restaurants attract foreigners. Try those places.

    If you are looking for a place with no alcohol where a wide range of level headed foreigners (aside from just crazies) hang out, you could check out Sans Rival in the mall. Just sit down, have a cup of coffee and eventually you will start talking to people.

    Well, I will look around, I don't think people would be interested in my groups, but I suppose I could throw it out there anyways.

    Just some questions first.

    Do you like to dress like a woman? What's your favorite color of panties?

    Do you like to put on some leather and torture people / be tortured (not painful, just role playing of course.) If so, which do you prefer?

    Are you between the ages of 35 and 39, over 5' 4" in height and have a college degree?

    Do you have a pet hamster (we'll explain after you sign a full non-disclosure agreement.)

    I'm sure we'll get you setup with a group soon!

    And now you know why everyone scatters at the bar when The Dude shows up. (And those are his activities while sober.....you really don't want to know what he's into after a couple drinks.)
