    I'm a decent-looking, nice guy, 50s, and I will be going in early March. I am not going there to hook up with anyone or to be creepy in any way. When I am there I will make an extra effort to be by myself and to keep to myself.

    Sure, I would love to find a woman to do dinner and drinks with, but I'm realistic enough to know that I have a better chance of finding a bag containing a million pesos on the beach. :)

    My concern is that I will stick out like a sore thumb. I am hoping to not be noticed.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Just be respectful of others. Most everyone there are very friendly. Just start talking to people and you should be accepted and make many friends in no time.

    Good luck!!!! Mostly couples is what we have seen. But if you respectful and easy going you will have a good time. There are singles that go and have a blast.

    One of the most amazing things about TTR is that people go there to meet people. Be friendly, respectful and open and you'll meet both great couples and singles. Trip no 15 for me coming up in April and most of them have been as a single. Participate in the theme nights, read lots on here and chime in on the threads that pertain to your travel dates and you'll have some friends before you even hit the resort.

    :cool:

    Just a note.....if you really don't want to be noticed....you can do that.....but if you want the best vacation of your life.......it's best to participate and meet some wonderful people.

    Throwing up a picture is a good start too.

    If you are there when we are one of us usually hits a wall before the other so this couple becomes a single at various times each day!

    the only time we have ever seen a single guy have an issue is when they act like idiots .. or don't talk to anyone and just creep in a corner
    so as long as you are nice and polite you should have no issues meeting people and having fun

    Thanks - not concerned at all with issues, only concerned with problems and awkwardness, and avoiding them.

    My recomendation would be not to try to avoid people get there meet people and have fun when we were there in january we met a few singles guys that were alot of fun to party with it was clear they were nervious but still fun just dont be a dick and if you meet people who are swingers “ dont” asume that means they will have sex with everyone or anyone,,,,

    Tip #1: Be cool
    Tip #2: If not that cool, fake it and refer to tip #1
    Tip #3: Do not sit quietly by yourself in a secluded are (immediate creeper alert)
    Tip #4: You paid for a vacation at a place where generally people are very friendly. Go meet new people and say hello. If they are jerks, move on, you got unlucky and found the dicks in the group. The next people will be happy to chat!

    Welcome to the club!

    I went April 2016 as a single guy. I had an absolute awesome time. Met tonnes of great people. Be outgoing friendly and participate.
    Also delivering shots helped.

    That's good to hear. Can you elaborate on the "delivering shots" part? Thanks - I've never been to Cancun.

    You'll meet tons of fun people there if you are outgoing, respectful, and not a creep. Have a blast!

    We too also feel it would be a good idea to post a pic of yourself. That will immediately get you out of the corner and will help you make friends even before you arrive! You're already part of this group. Posting a pic will only help you catch up with your friends from here when you arrive.

    the spreading shots thing . hubs and I do it I get the bartenders to make something called a weewee orange juice , pineapple juice and coconut rum .. and I get 15 or so and make some rounds :) since not everyone knows that shot its a good one to share the bartenders may remember it this time if the same guys are still there .. by the end of our week everyone is making them :)
    do you have a shot that maybe is something you love that some people might not know .. you can start a new trend :)
    people appreciate not having to go to the bar its a good way to say hello
    we are also bringing a blow up beach ball to start a game ..

    If you are there the first week of March, please come say hi as we are looking forward to hanging out with single men while there. As a matter of fact, we chose TTR over Desire for this trip because singles are welcomed at Temptation...
