This year’s ROMBA felt underwhelming. Partying was ok, per usual, but the conference itself felt blah. Panels were mediocre, corporate events were cheap-ish, there weren’t enough senior people. Even hooking up was just twinks on twinks on twinks mostly (not into them, so choices were very limited). Is it post-covid, corporate cost cuts or something else?

I’m guessing it’s a combo of things, including companies not hiring so aggressively like they did in previous years.

Considering the demographic it’s going to be twink centric… but I understand what you’re saying. I’ll likely be there next year so I hope it’s a better showing all around.

The target is MBA students. They're like 26 years old, so not near zaddy daddy age. This crew is less likely to be visibly athletic or gym bunny, so fewer muscle guys. Less likely to be overweight, so fewer bears/cubs.

Maybe there were some otters who were hard to identify, but I could see how twinks could be overrepresented.

It’s always been mostly for hook ups i remember I brought home 3 ambitious Asian twinks had an orgy

On the content side, most conferences on any topic seem interesting the first time you go but are just the same old stuff by your 3rd/4th time. On the budgets, can be market sentiment but also a shift to address other underrepresented groups in recruiting. I do get the sense that gay/bi men are now considered mainstream rather than underrepresented, which is good in some ways of course. On the hookups - I hope everyone had had the training on behaving at recruitment events. You weren’t suggesting being a bad boy, OP?

Despite his efforts I didn't sleep with him, even though he was really pushy.
I googled him recently and apparently he's been arrested for SA other women
