Squidoo Matchmaking for Valentines Day

Updated on January 17, 2014

Are You a Squidoo Lover?

Get together on Squidoo on Valentine's Day. Just for a bit of Valentine's Day fun I've devised a matchmaking lens for Squidooers - a sort of professional dating agency for members of the Squidoo community and lovers of Squidoo to maximize team-working.

The people I've met on Squidoo are busy people, hard-working, resourceful, literate, helpful, computer-savvy, generous and interesting - just the sort of people I'd like to meet in 'real' life - although chance would be a fine thing in my hamlet of Videix, deep in the heart of rural France!

Whether you're looking for Squidoo soul-mates or just a writing companion or two, this is the place to go.

So how does it work? We all want our articles to be read and we are all looking for links so add some to this lens. Post a link to your Squidoo home page, , your lensography or a link to a site that draws people together FOR PROFESSIONAL REASONS ONLY, or add a text link or a lens saying who you are and who you want to meet and why, then post it in one of the links below and lets see if love will follow.

If you know of a place where Squids can meet up, then do add a link here.

PLEASE DON'T POST LINKS TO ANY REGULAR DATING AGENCIES OR DATING SITES - THIS IS JUST A BIT OF SQUIDOO FUN FOR SQUIDOO LENSMASTERS ONLY!

It Can Get Pretty Lonely Out There!

So lets all link up

What I need is a Squidoo Matchmaker, (unofficial of course), to help me make friends on the net. I'm not advocating meeting for real, (way too dangerous, although, of course, people do it all the time), but just to have a little squidoo fun, a bit of networking, discover new places to get together and Squidoo party.

You can even take the polls and earn a few Squid points.

Who knows Squidoo Romance may blossom!

Looking for Squid-Love?

I was lying in bed trying to get to sleep and planning, nay worrying, about everything from lenses to life, when this idea popped into my head - why not set up a Squidoo Dating Agency?

There must be lots of lone and single Squids out there looking for love! Then I thought, this is perhaps not such a good idea, the internet being what it is and all. On the other hand it's not all about ***, is it? It's not only love we seek - what about HTML tricks for example? I think it was harder getting to grips with that than with the other.

Then there's the knotty problems of who are the best Squidoo role models? Where can we pick up Squidoo logos for our lenses, and what about the thorny issues of copyright?

Now personally, I'm all loved-up with hubby, and son, and dog, and cat and Les Trois Chenes and life in France, but the latest love in my life - Squidoo, has seriously swept me off my feet!

Everyone needs friends and I found lots here on Squidoo - but it wasn't easy.

So why don't you do a nice little lens about yourself, who you'd like to meet and why and then post it in one of the link lists below and see who gets in touch with you?

      @Gayle Mclaughlin: Hi Gayle. Not really a dating site I thought it would just be nice for Squids to network - bit of a laugh but also a way to network. I'm not single either but love 'meeting' other squids on line and found the facebook groups a great way of improving my lenses.

      "Squid Love" can be a slippery thing!

      I am not single either--so not interested in romantic meetups--but it would be fun to meet a fellow squid in person!

      @NC Shepherd: Add yourself to one of these lists or let me know and I'll add one. I love the things you write about so there are soul-mates out there.

      Interesting idea for a lens. I find it hard to find anyone who shares any of my interests anywhere nearby.

      I wish I had known about you over there in France when I was there last September (wrote a lens about it). I plan to return to France as I find actually being there the best way to improve my language skills. I'll look you up next time.

      This is a great lens idea.

      @Virginia Allain: Thanks Vallain. I'm not single either but I like to have contact with other writers - I have so much to learn and need that up-to-date information! I have also already learnt a lot and have a bit of knowledge that I can pass on in turn. I've thought of another catagory - Squids in France. I've already met a few so there must be lots of us here.

      I'm not single, so not a good candidate for your topic here. I think some Squid Meet-ups were held last year, but I wasn't able to attend. What fun to share your Squidoo interests with someone who understands what you are talking about. Who knows where your matchmaking will take you.
