The theme of this meeting was GETTING TO THE ESSENCE PART 2. Some highlights that we covered:
1) We did a Dropbox tutorial for those of us who have never used it before. Thank you to those who put their profiles in!! If you are familiar with Dropbox please please go in there for one minute and put the profile in. From now until the next meeting our goal is to have at least 20 profiles there - 10 for men, 10 for women!
Last meeting we agreed that the organization and naming of files will go as follows:
Click on either the Male/Female folder. Then within each folder we created subcategories of age, increments of 10 years. Choose the correct age range for the single. Then right click your mouse, and choose Upload File. Name the file the following: Female_Age ##_PROFILE_(and then the next number which follows the last number already in the folder).

2) We viewed more video clips of singles. If you haven't already gotten a short video of your single, don't waste a minute and call them up right now to ask them to do it!
Here are some sample questions that they should answer:
- What is the most important quality that you would say you are looking for in your spouse?
- Tell me somebody that you look up to/admire and why?
- What's something you have a real love for, something that either relaxes you or something you just absolutely love doing?
Video clips shouldn't be more than 2-3 minutes long.
Remember, these videos are meant to do two things:
#1 Introduce the single to the group in a way that makes them a REAL person and not just another name on a piece of paper. That way we can feel like we "know" them a little more and can have hopefully more success in trying to match them with another single.
And #2 to try to dig a little deeper beyond the basic facts on a profile and to GET TO THE ESSENCE of the person. To try to understand what makes them tick, so to speak.
Once the video is made, let the single upload it to the Dropbox as well. The file should be named: Female_Age ##_VIDEO_(and then the same number that was used for the profile).
It was a pleasure meeting with all of the ladies and we look forward to our next meeting!!
