In addition to Buddhism surely buddhists can talk about other topics. I just went & got a cup of coffee & made it iced coffee & I'm having a fabulous day :) / I would like to hear people's opinions on Buddhist human beings dating. Monastic life does Not interest me. Surely this forum online isn't just to talk about Buddhism. Every conversation I've ever had with another human being has more than one topic. Can we talk about art work? Theatre? Movies? Careers?

    Well, it IS a Buddhist forum. Inevitably, other topics come into play as we talk about our daily lives. But primarily, Buddhism and related things is what we tend to talk about.

    As far as dating, Buddhists really are just other human beings :awesome: Their/our views on any topic vary quite a bit. Most of us aren't monastics. But we live our lives, to some degree or another, with a basis in Buddhism.

    Hey @Kindhumanbeing - that's what the General Banter Category is for.

    Trust me, we'll talk about anything!!!

    When it comes to dating though, I don't have much to offer....not my strong point right now :)

    Oh you are so right. And very meditative, too. I'm thinking of starting a knitting group - just like-minded folks who will get together one afternoon a week, and sit, knit, chew the cud... Ladies, gentlemen, boys 'n' girls, all ages welcome, just to learn, exchange ideas and find common ground. Or wool. Or acrylic, as is often the case! :D
