Also - for people wondering whether to put their photos up or not, do it! We wouldn't have met when we did if it hadn't been for our having photos up. We'd only ever chatted on here once before, for all of 10 minutes. We actually met the very next day, but it was accidental - simply recognised him in a pub, we got talking and it all went from there. He's so gorgeous I'd have probably talked to him anyway, but recognising him from here gave an instant opener! Although possibly asking someone if they're from oxfordromance isn't the coolest chat up line.... *cough*"

This is one of the many happy outcomes to which we have contributed.  :-)

News and updates:

12th March 2015: We really need a volunteer to help run OxfordRomance. Please will someone step forward to do (at least) the role of membership and publicity? Cupid needs your help: he simply cannot do this alone any more. There is quite a large budget available, whether you wish to spend it on marketing, or as payment for your time. If not you, then who?
1st January 2015: Happy New Year! We hope that you find love in 2015, and we'll do our best to help!
8th October 2014: The Freshers' Fair is this week (Wed-Fri). Do come to say hello. Volunteers who can help out would be extremely welcome!
7th October 2014: Welcome to a new term! And, to our new members, a particularly warm welcome: we hope we help you find love :-) If you would like to get involved with the society, and with running events, please contact OxfordRomance President, Abbas.
As it's the start of a new year, it may take a short time to get going: in particular, if you are a new member, please do take a moment to write a little about yourself... otherwise everyone waits for everyone else to make the first move!
5th June 2014: We are already doing our part (HTTPS, HSTS, PFS) to protect your privacy; may we also recommend the Reset The Net campaign.
12th May 2014: We have just received a (significant) amount of sponsorship. So, we'd like to recruit a membership, publicity and marketing cherub to the Oxrom committee. The funding is sufficient to cover design and distribution of posters/flyers etc and any more imaginative ideas that occur to you. There is also some funding to cover your time. If you're interested, please contact Cupid.
