Anyone who posts activities wonder why the % uptake of activities is so low? I recently posted a dinner at 7:30pm. This is a restaurant with excellent (and healthy) food and relatively low prices. There were 71 people that opened the activity to read more about it yet only one person accepted! ???? If they had plans for dinner Tuesday night, why even open it? This is a common occurence in my experience. I suspect a lot of these are men who are just looking to see how many woman signed up and what they looked like. If this is true, then I think it would be an interesting experiment one month to make our profiles anonymous. Don't list our age, sex or show a photo and see what happens. People are more than their exterior. 90% of the joy of joining activities is interacting with people, not the activity itself.
Unfortunately, I think men are using glocals as a dating site--hoping to hook up. I seen times when there were over 100 views for one of my activities and no takers but after 2 or 3 women sign up, all of sudden 3 or 4 guys will suddenly have their plans change and sign up. I completely understand why some women chose not to post their photo here. it's too bad that guys are always thinking with the wrong head. I wish we could see who viewed our activities. That would be really interesting.
