M8O4OG: "“the Best Reality Show on TV”says Gawker.com"
--not surprising given this excellently-produced show follows & interviews 2 real polyamorous families today right here in SoCal, including shows them in the bedroom, dinner table, work, shower, driving, parties, with their relatives, children, lovers, & friends, indeed seemingly everywhere in their poly lives!
MAH2QI: Don't get Showtime? Then this event series will likely be your only way to see this show, a major reason we're holding it; and it & this fine show may also give you reason to signup for Showtime! And even if youdogetShowtime,...
MAH309:Watch the show HERE:
*on our home theater (created for this event series, with a huge ~85-inch screen & great sound) and
*with other local interested people to talk about & discuss the show with!
M8GGAG: PLEASE RSVP NOW especially as that helps make this happen; we need to know now “Who’s interested?”. Also space is limited, but there's an automatic waiting list. If RSVPing NO, please explain why in your RSVP.
M8LS2P: With our connections, we may be able to get some of the stars of the show to join us & talk with us live!at one of our future showings(as the stars live right here in SoCal) --that is, if we're getting enough RSVP YESes to bring them out, so RSVP YES now!
"M7XL6M: ..BRING YOUR LAPTOP COMPUTER, including for our discussion (for posting our discussion live online, and for web lookup), for completing a survey, plus for your posting event & show review and especially for planning future activities. Free wifi Internet will be provided."
MAH2L6:Free popcorn for everyone. And, if you wish, bring some snacks, drinks, and/or food to share.
M8LT3Q:Our goal is for everyone to be able to afford to come to this educational event!
MAH03Z: As is typical for introductory polyamory events, this aims to be a family event as much as possible. Advanced adult sexual & especially-romantic topics will be covered but in a serious & non-pornographic manner and there will be no attendee sexual activity going on at this event. Those under 18 are welcome but only if accompanied by their parents.
MAH1PY:This event series, which we hope to repeat, watches & discusses all of season 1 (7 episodes ~25 minutes each). To do that, we're holding 2 sessions, currently 1 week apart. The 1st session covers episodes 1 thru 3 and the 2nd covers episodes 4 thru 7. Though not required, it helps if you do all sessions in order. As a refresher, the above 3-minute intro video will be shown at the start of every session.
M7XO6S: Especially for future showings, we could use additional event hosts and we need additional venues. If you or someone you know might be interested, please post a comment on that venue link or here.
MAIQZI:How to edit this event date, place, & description? Is this copy ("the source", given at the top of this description)? If Yes, archive this, then edit it, then archive it again. If No, don't edit this but instead replace it with a copy of the latest version of the source then archive it.

Your organizer's refund policy for Group watch&discuss Showtime’s hot “POLYAMORY: MARRIED AND DATING” S1Episode1-3+
Founded 2008 * Welcoming all races * 300+ Members, mostly Orange & LA-County Asians in their 20s & 30s
For SoCal surrounding OC, we're a social group for friendly local adults (esp. young adults) both Asian & Asian-involved/curious:
Per our name, we're about making & being friends—the most core of all human relationships (even the core of best romance).
We're for adults of all ages especially adults looking and/or thinking 20s & 30s (young adult & college student events/discussions/activities: parties, dating, romance, dancing, music, clubbing, networking, starting & building one's own life & career, etc); friendly professional people of all sorts are welcome!
Per our name, our members & activities are mostly Asian (about 82%), where "Asian" means:
But why is an Asian group being run by some quirky white guy called “Destiny”??
Well first it's not just me: I'm just a part:
Our founders are Vietnamesefrom right here in Orange County. Back in 2008, they came up with our great name “Asianfriendster” (I changed only to “AsianFriendster”) and our great slogan “Make New Friends with Asian” (I changed to “SoCal's Make New Friends with Asians”), and hosted many great social events, and recruited 232 fine local people, mostly Asians in their 20s & 30s but also a few of other races including me.
Okay, fine, but how did some white guy get the lead? Well kind of by accident:
A historic woe: Right about the time I joined (in 2009, a year after the group started, after increasing fun & success which is what got even me to join), our founders then started holding events nobody wanted, and members stopped RSVPing, so eventually the founders & everyone abandoned the group. So in 2010 May, seeing the group was just 1 hour from being totally deleted by Meetup, curious I clicked “Become the Organizer” (just to see what that would cost, still not really imagining my doing it with me being a white guy) but Meetup.com then said “Okay, you're now the Head Organizer” (oops!); so I stepped up, said “Well, okay, I'll do my best”, got involved, footed the bill, and have since been working my butt off to resuscitate our group back to life.
But that's not all to the story: it's also due to some genetic luck. As you may ask, Why me, a "whitie"? -What was a "whitie" doing an Asian group in the first place?! Well see my profile! While some Asians are called (indeed teased for being) "bananas" (yellow on the outside but white on the inside), I was born an "egg" (white on the outside but yellow on the inside) –and NOT by my choice, probably like being gay, probably by genetic mutation. Jeeze, I'd even like my own kids to be Asian! And I've got my mother cooking Pho! –now how else can you explain that?!
So, like I said, just think of me as white-on-the-outside but yellow-on-the-inside ;-) Plus just someone who just won't let a good thing die, yes, even if he's not even Asian-skin and the only one to speak-up.
New to Meetup.com?Welcome to Meetup, too! – the most-powerful major website to find & host in-person groups. If you want, simply use your Facebook to login. Meetup provides you 79K in-person local groups: all topics, worldwide, & mostly for free! Moreover, like a Better Business Bureau member...
Yes, we're big (269+ members) but your voice counts big-time here —and we need it!So don't let our size fool you to into thinking that you can keep quiet and just-lurking is okay —No! Not at all. You need to RSVP with constructive comments & speak-up here!
Our founding organizers came up with great name and were always open to non-Asians, however (as mentioned) they began hosting events which eventually totally burnt out our first 232 members (see details in our About page). So –unless you can figure out a way to wake up our first 232 members– you would better to think of this as a group of 37 members! (=269-232). So...
If this group is to be a success for you (and for everyone), we all are really depending on you to speak up!
Come to events; RSVP with constructive comments even if you're not coming!
Suggest an activity; volunteer to host an activity
say (in your RSVP comment & elsewhere) constructively how much you like it (& why) or why you don't like it.
Also, right now, on your group profile's Edit email settingsplease turn on “Email me when this Meetup Group's message board is updated” (it's unfortunately off by default); that when someone (or you) posts Discussion Board talk, everyone will be alerted.
So what sort of activities do we do?Well have a browse of our site (below and menu "Meetups" above) and RSVP!! :-)And if you don't see exactly what you want, use the Ideas panel to suggest what you want.Welcome! And see you soon!
