*Tired of not having any single friends?
*Have you been the 3rd or 5th wheel just one too many times?
*Do your non-single friends always push you on the single guy/girl in the room thinking just because you’re both single, you're automatically going to be into each other?
*Would you like to find friends that can be ready and on the way in an hour?
*Would you like to meet other single people doing single people things on a single person schedule but don’t know where to go to meet them?
Well, if the answer to one or more of those questions is yes...then this is the group for you. This group is about making friends with other singles and not intended to be a match making/hooking-up kind of crowd. I’d like to create a fun and inviting yet safe group where one would feel comfortable showing up alone. That being said, if you do find someone who strikes your fancy, remember the very best relationships always start out by being friends first. We’ll be getting together in the South Bay Area for social activities like happy hours, dinners out, movies, concerts, dancing, and whatever else that sounds good to the group. Please feel free to make suggestions.
It’s 7 Months Later:
Since the beginning of this group in February 2012, we’ve had great success with the group’s original mission, single people coming together making wonderful friends and having A LOT of fun in doing so. We have created an inviting environment in which people feel comfortable and welcome from their very first visit. This is thanks to the group’s incredible members who are friendly, accepting, and just down right awesome! To all of you, THANK YOU!
As time has gone by and we have gotten to know each other better, a few couples have formed in the group. As stated above, this groups intention is not a singles mingle or a place to troll for the “next available”. However, when you get a group of friendly, fun, and interesting single people together, human nature takes over and people are attracted to and drawn towards one another. New couples ARE welcome to stay in the group and will NOT be asked to leave and join some “Friend of” group. We are all friends here and the good friends you’ve made want nothing but the best for you, truly.
If…however, you are a member or become a member of this group and have a problem with this kind of new found joy and are bothered by the fact that there are a few new couples around sometimes…I suggest you find another group that is dedicated to staying single. That sort of group is out there and is available to you. If you’re inflexible about this, you’re probably not a good fit for this group anyway.
That said, to the new couples, please exercise age appropriate behavior. I ask that you not behave like teenagers and fondle, make-out or talk incessantly about your new beau or beauette. Please DO NOT try to hide your happiness! Hand-holding, hugging, and a peck on the cheek here and there is encouraged. Be forthcoming. I don’t want there to be hard feelings or embarrassment if you need to turn down an invitation because someone didn’t know you were no longer available.
Nobody wants to cut off these new friendships, and NOBODY should be made to feel like they have to leave the group…for any reason (unless you’re totally creepy and are scaring people). Comments like “why are they still here” or “they should go join a couples group somewhere” will not be tolerated. If I hear you say it, you’ll be the one asked to leave.
At the end of the day, it’s about making friends…not staying single.
