Partners

Post by STEVIE »

This is a suggestion which arises from some talk in the Mass Meet Thread and I wonder if our Mod team would give it consideration?
Would it be possible for a "Partners/Significant Others" category to be added to the board?
We know that a fair degree of our members have partners who vary widely in their attitudes toward MIS and maybe it would help if they could share experiences and feelings in a space away from the main forum.
I will say, that for my own purposes, that boat sailed long ago, but I do believe there could be benefits for many guys.

In this world, most anything is possible -- even bad ideas. However, I don't think this is necessarily a bad idea -- quite the opposite, really, as it's a common problem. I'll have a chat with the team to see if we can reach a consensus.

I would like this. I haven’t broached my skirt wearing with my wife yet - I’m thinking I could raise it next summer when the weather is hot. It would be interesting to hear the thoughts of other women on the topic to help frame my approach.

Thanks Carl, I don't think we can ask for more than that.

crfriend - Sent PM - did you receive it -or- did the great internet void swallow it in a black hole ?
"YES SKIRTING MATTERS"!
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

Hmm... I never saw it -- and it's not because my in-box was full.

Carl,

I, too, have sent you 4-5 PM's via Skirt Cafe' messaging and had no response from you.
60% of those PM's were about Cafe' matters, supplies and such.
What Gives :?:

Good Morning All.
Now I feel moved to request further consideration for a "Partners' Section"
The fact that 50% of the last meeting was made up of significant others surely provides compelling evidence for a try to be worthwhile.
Over to the Mods and members now.

Thanks for considering! I don't know that my wife would ever participate, but it sure would be nice if it were available. I think she would be more interested in what other wives/girlfriends think than a bunch of guys who are all in favor of skirt wearing.

It has come to pass. The new section is in place under "People" and should be visible to all members in good standing. I wanted to protect this, at least initially, from the prying "eyes" of web-crawlers and bots, but everyone really ought to be able to access, read, and post to it. If that's not the case, please fel free to lean on the Barista!
