Hello Fellow Introverts, This meetup is for folks who like people, but who may not be exceptionally talkative, outgoing or who may be a little shy at first. Our outdoor activities are designed for introverts who like to be around people, but who don't necessarily appreciate pressure to engage in small talk, to be funny or enthusiastic in order to fit in. Other groups designated for Introverts have been exceptionally popular, but have been primarily in the Denver area. I hope that this meetup helps to facilitate introverts in the Boulder-Longmont area to socialize a bit more by creating a culture that completely accepts quiet and silence, intensity and seriousness, shyness and 'slow to come out of your shell' types of people, as well as serious discussions about intellectual or academic topics. I am imagining that our meetups will consist primarily of hikes and walks on the trails in and around Boulder. Other activities might include picnics, group bike rides or trash pickups at targeted locations. Members who want to go out for food or drinks together will be encouraged to organize impromptu get togethers after our outdoor activities. As your fearless leader, or rather mostly fearless leader, I see my role as organizer to be responsible for establishing a minimal amount of structure for events and posting them on the website. I will suggest and help others to suggest venues, help members to find each other at the meetups and to help people to feel comfortable and welcome. I do not see my role as an inspirational cheerleader or enthusiasm builder; as an introvert that simply isn't in my nature. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to suggest any way to help this meetup get off the ground. I strongly encourage, if not explicitly request, member participation in the formation and maintenance of this group. Please tell me what you would like to gain from this meetup. What are your interests and goals? What nice hiking locations, parks or activities would you like to suggest for the group? Whether you are new to town or simply don't get out much to meet new people, I hope you join us for some outdoor adventures this summer. So, come as you are, expect to be accepted just the way you are and meet other introverts who are simply looking for the same. I look forward to meeting you. -Nick

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
