socializing (or lack thereof) among Orthodox singles
I understand the need for Shadchanim today and I don't expect to have a deep discussion at a kiddush at one of the shuls in the neighborhood. What I don't understand is your lack of wanting to have anything to do with the single guys in your neighborhood. Are we a bunch of misfits or ogres? Maybe we work in similar fields. I don't know but you won't let me or my fellow single males know this fact.
Why do you want to wait for a Shadchan or Shabaton? Are they so successful?
Is conversation of "non-traditional frum topics" something that you are incapable of? Prove me wrong and I will be happy to change my opinion.
