Yahoo Personals is closing?
Wed, 05-26-2010 - 10:05pm

I got an email from Yahoo Personals that says they're closing and everyone's profiles are being moved to

I've been on for a while and not getting anywhere, so I thought I'd go back to YP for the first time in 3 years.

Add that to the fact that a local singles activity club I was thinking of joining just disappeared from the internet completely, their website and their facebook, I guess that's telling me I'm going to remain single because I'm loosing all of my options.

Well, um, look at it this way, all those other folks you went to YahooP to meet will also get transferred to Match, so you still have a chance.

Start your own Singles activity club! go to to get started.

I found your last sentence a bit funny, I don't think this necessarily means that you will remain single for the rest of your life, and maybe there will be more options on match, although ChristianMingle is pretty eager to pick up the Yahoo group that doesn't want to be apart of Match.

Wonder what happened with the local group? There is probably other groups, did you find them through MeetUp?

Best of Luck in your search!

Man, do I know that feeling (the one expressed in your last sentence)! In my case, meetup doesn't HAVE groups in my remote part of the U.S.. I hope they do in yours.

I think the PP who said all the YP people would be moving to Match had a good point. Have you tried I've had modest luck there. I had NO luck with eHarmony, but my DS met his fiancee there.

Don't give up the search! There are people out there for you (and me, I hope); it's just a matter of finding them--and remembering they're looking for you, too. :)

I live in a a medium size town and was uninspired with the selection of Meetups. So, I started my own and I have met some very interesting people and have had a lot of fun with it. I'm not a big "joiner" and am an introvert, so this is highly unusual for me to do. Oddly enough, one of the men that comes to the meetups is someone I saw on, although we have never corresponded through Match.

Losing all your options?
