I have the same issue as Dylan: Friday night is "date" night with my 
wife (of 13 years). I've managed to make it to only one DVLUG meeting 
and would love to come to others, but the Friday night is no good for 
me.  If the meeting is rescheduled, or an additional periodic meeting is 
held on another night, I'm game to give it a whirl. For my part, 
Tuesdays and most Wednesdays are booked, but Mondays and Thursdays are 
fairly open.  Of course, that's just me!

While I may not make *every* Friday night, that day works best for me even though I'm in a committed relationship (having just celebrated 12 years of marriage).  Being the start of the weekend it offers the opportunity for my wife and I to do our separate activities for a couple hours in downtown WC while still having a "date" night before and after the LUG meeting.
