Indeed there was, and nope there was definitely some female attendance. I think the focus was on riding Swinley and no relationships were formed.
Whilst true that no relationships were formed, one member of the forum at least got a phone number and a subsequent date (though it led nowhere cos of distance involved) ensued!
To be honest, I've done more than my fair share of internet dating, and aside from the creepy "I'm interested in you as a bit on the side" types (though most girls I've met online have got a number of stories about blokes like this approaching them) I've got stories from pretty much every angle. There have been girls I've been interested in nothing more than sex with, there have been girls that have used me, there have been girls I've really liked that has not been requited and there have been girls that have fallen for me that I've not been interested in. There have also been a couple of girls that DEFINITELY ate the girl in their photos seemingly, you'd be surprised just how many girls have put on 5+ stone in about as many months (How is this physically possible? I can eat 5000+ calories a day and even with no exercise, still only gain a couple of pounds in a month!), and then there was the girl that I fell in love with and then she screwed me over!
But just as I was ready to give it all up as a lost cause yet again, I met my current GF, and we've been together for coming up to 12 months now. It is very cliched, but the key to finding love is to stop looking for it! I was just about to close my POF profile when my GF messaged me, and I almost didn't even bother reading her email... Just as well I did, she's even a keen cyclist now (or will be again when her collarbone heals)!
