I've been lurking here for a while now and decided to join in the fun. I'm a Baltimore foodie and former restaurant employee (Charleston, Roy's, a few others). While hanging out with some former co-workers, the topic of dating and eating out came up. Since people like us (foodies and restaurant people) generally will place a higher importance on when, where, what, and how to eat, dating people from the Applebee's and Subway mentality generally won't work.
One of the girls that was with us mentioned a website she likes called foodservicesingles.com, which is a place for people like us (foodies and/or restaurant people) to communicate, date, chat, hang out, whatever . . . I actually thought it was a pretty good idea and surprised no one thought of it up to this point.
If you sign up and you're from the area, my name on there is "lbiars". Always looking for new foodie friends.
