Asians and Friends Boston was started is a unique social group where East meets West in 2001. As time has gone on we have become an International Friendship Group and we WELCOME YOU to become our FRIEND. We look forward to meeting anyone interested in our group and welcome anyone to our group. We hope you will enjoy yourselves and add to our circle of friends.
While we are not perfect we hope if we make mistakes you will let us know, and you will remain to endure our apologies.
Some basic thoughts.............
We welcome anyone who is interested in helping the group progress in promoting friendships.
If you plan to attend an event, You can expect to be welcomed and made to feel welcome. You should not feel uncomfortable at any time. You are also welcome to attend with your friends we simply ask that you and your friends respect the same guidelines we set for our members in respecting anyone. While it seldom happens, Please let any organizer or senior member know if you or anyone is feeling uncomfortable or pressured at any time. We can not fix any problem if we are not aware of a problem.
We are all human beings and our group is predominately a very well balanced mix of people from around the World, who generally happen to share an attraction to the same sex. If you attend our events you will not normally even know this was the case since we seldom even make that known. Our group welcomes anyone to our group as a friend with only respect as a guideline.
We would like to see everyone post some type of picture since it is much more fun to enjoy then seeing the plain ole "no photo yet" image. If you are not willing to post your own picture, a favorite art picture or scene would be fine. This is a social group please do not upload photos depicting sex acts.
We also STRESS that this is a social group and while friendships and relationships will surely happen we also stress that those relationships AND couples are respected, and are treated as Golden. Please do not pressure any member or members to talk or make them feel uncomfortable, we are all in different stages of our lives in this world we live.
When you attend our public events we ask that you respect the group members and do not bring undue attention to everyone. When attending events at our members homes we will usually be giving out name tags and collecting a small donation for the expenses involved please be prepared for this collection along with letting your friends or guests know about this ahead of time. If you are financially tight with the funds would still like to attend our events we want you there, just let the organizer know ahead of time and we might request for you to help the hosts with setting up or clean up if anything. And again Respect the host's home and guests as if your parents were there with you.
We are a non-profit group but we do have some expenses with website domain, meetup costs of $72 every 6 months and general supplies for pot luck dinners such as drinks and supplies, so we welcome donations to support those expenses. Donations and expenses will be posted on this site openly and can be viewed under the Money icon under group tools.
If you email the group, we will respond as soon as possible. Although sometimes faster than other times the organizers obviously are not always able to check emails immediately.
Please be part of the group and help in suggestions for events and ideas and RSVP for events whenever you can.
Take a few seconds to Vote on event suggestions and polls.
This website is still a new format for our group and we will have trials and errors, please learn with us. If you find you are getting to many emails, there are options to limit the emails and stop them altogether. We will be happy to assist you in directions on how to do this, although we do want you to know about the events we are holding and want you to attend and enjoy life. So if you limit the emails or simply set up an email account for only the groups notices please keep checking the website for any event you might enjoy attending with friends. Our Yahoo members are not getting the same amount of notices and might not know of the smaller events which are very time consuming to post to the Yahoo membership list. Please make any members you know aware of our events that they might not have heard about and would enjoy.
If you attend an event and you take pictures, please respect those who might not like their pictures taken. We have all grown up in different cultures and we need to respect the difference in backgrounds and privacy. We are a private group and only members are able to view the pictures, but still respect others wishes at all times.
If you do take pictures please share those with the group so we can have a record of the good times. We would like to be able to post pictures for each event if and when possible.
If you have any suggestions to add to this page feel free to email the organizer at AsiansandFriendsBoston@yahoo.com
We can only enjoy and nurture this group with the help of everyone.
