I, for one, would love that.

Think about it. Who else knows best about our anxiety/depression disorders? Other SAS guys. Simple.

No, no, no, and no.

There's enough horny guys on this site as is.

I like the concept. It's a great one. How it'll work out? That's what we need to figure out. I agree that we don't need trolls, but something good that to filter them out yet attract good people that are serious in dating.

How about this?

Etc, etc.. You get the idea?

What constitutes bullying, harassment, etc?

Who determines whether or not a post crosses that line?

What are the penalties for crossing that line?

How many additional Mods are going to be needed to cover this potential trouble area?



This is not a dating site. It is a support site to help people overcome Social Anxiety. Making things easier does not help someone overcome their fears.

If you want to meet someone then you have incentive to work harder at overcoming your anxiety.

Why do people keep asking for a dating section? This is constantly brought up here.

For one, the ratio of guys-to-girls would be about 20-to-1 (that's probably being very conservative)...

Then it would open the door to people who don't even have mental health issues at all (we get enough of these as it is)...

And the whole site is already a 'dating site': If you see someone you like, then send them a PM, strike up a conversation, and see if you hit it off. It doesn't need to be so complicated that it warrants its own section.

Post here - http://www.socialanxietysupport.com/forum/f7/ - and see if you get any attention. A "dating section" wouldn't be much different from what we already have. This idea seems more like a pipe dream that people have that if we have a dating section, they're going to magically hook up with someone here. Guess what: You're not.

there are those ****ty _passions sites eg. shypassions, and probably other sites for shy people. can't we just link to one of those and tell people to do their dating things there?

this site actually used to have sas dating site advertised/attached on it, so its not all that crazy an idea

if it makes more money i dont see why not

if you're not interested in that kind of thing then dont click/look, pretty simple

something i would want is the ability to stop certain threads showing up on the "new posts" link

its kind of annoying to constantly have "last post wins" and all those game threads knocking stuff i might interested in off the page, i mean its just pure spam often one word posts

Well ,Why? What else do you want then ? If those subforums got removed somehow

I see them more as a breath of fresh air around these parts. Considering the ratio of positive posts to negative/depressing posts here.

I wouldn't wish the problems I'm going through on anyone. I enjoy reading about people triumphing over this mess we are struggling with even though the progress I'm making isn't what I want it to be.

What measures do you guys have against 13 steppers and people who only sign up here to attract attention from lonely people and respond (or don't respond at all) in such a way as to inhibit successful recovery?


Purge all emotion, and become a construct of rationality.
Purge all motion, and transcend the external fantasy.
Submit to your mind, the sovereign of your reality,
Slave to your perception and hermit of insanity.

Report suspicious behaviour, and moderators will look into it.

More entertainment = more visitors to the forum possibly.
I say we make a section of the site specifically as clickbait for the horny guys and just let that one single section become a cesspool of thirst.

Everyone else can just ignore that section or browse it for lulz.
