shy approaching people in different circumstances its so simple i was surprised not to see it last year

It's called 'Center Camp' (Desperation Village) and is conveniently (and quite centrally) located at 6:00 and Esplanade.

Haven't any of you knuckleheads ever heard of the Costco Soulmate Trading Outlet? Not as hot as Barbie Death Camp, but damn close.

It's called the Costco Soulmate Trading Outlet for a reason.

Oh, good grief. (Shmok, anyone?)

Why does anybody eschew singles meeting each other on playa when we all know that a great many singles come to BM?

It has been our experience over the years that at The Project few care or even want to know if you are single.It's a very special week where formalities are generally discarded.

Hi, I'm temporally single...
Basic b/e analysis:
2005 $243K
06 $855K
07 $1.0M
08 $1.1M
09 $0
10 $1.1M
11 $1.2M
12 $1.2M
That’s $6.8M that thousands of volunteers deserve to know about. Capitalism is alive at BM. Tickets are the commodity. Others have estimated higher profits.

Hmmm..

I am A BM virgin.. so my opinion may have no value but here it is anyways :lol:
I am by nature shy, and me going to BM is a huge, but much needed step. Tacking on having to over-socialize to find lovers might be a monumental task in my case. I think this tent would be ideal for the shy crowd. (yes, we are out there..you just dont notice us :roll: )

What I expect:
Don't worry about your status and life will happen. Either you will hook up or not. It will not matter. You will have fun.

I know I will have fun :)

Pretty much everyone you meet on the playa is friendly.
It's very easy to meet all kinds of people.
If you are out exploring, it will happen.

I'm seeing a lot more "request for camps" lately. You don't "request" a theme for a camp. If you think something needs to be in BRC, bring it, build it, or will it, stop asking and just participate!

No need, that camp was already registered. As was the "Pretend-It's-really-there-just-invisible Camp" :wink:

They've tried "speed dating" and other camps like that, but it's always been kind of disorganized. I think you have a real good idea for a camp! BM is actually a pretty hard place to meet people on any level because most folks allow themselves to become part of a group and they remain that way for the entire week....

I agree, who wants to know your relationship status on the playa? Burning man is about paticipating in new experiences, if you can't get out, go with the flow, and socialize on the playa, then why are you there? Personally, I think you'll find much more interesting singles, outside of a singles group.

Now on another note, if someone wants to make a "Fuck it, let's just fuck" camp then they might have a good idea goin for themselves! :D

Well yes of course, but you see, if we localize the area into one camp we can improve efficiency and productiveness!
