The only requirement is that you have been single at some time in your life, know someone who was, or are interested in some of the subjects that single people have been known to talk about. Please realise, though, that there are a lot of quite fragile people here who don't wish to be reminded how lovely it is to be in a relationship.
That said, angst of any form is always *most* welcome, along with donations of chocolate.
Extra-terrestrials are welcome, provided they behave. There have been large numbers of sad bastards who've come barging in from AOL (America On-Line) posting and have given a bad name to the others, who are actually nice people, but have been tarred with the same brush. As this is essentially a UK group, other groups such as soc.singles may be more appropriate for some people.
Announcements by regular posters of the group, for social gatherings and the like, for readers of the group.
Most pointers are generally web sites of so called 'dating' services for people mainly based in the USA, or for lists of Eastern Bloc or Asian women. This type of advertising is NOT welcome.
