This group is designed for adults of any age, not currently in relationship, to meet others socially. This is not specifically a dating group; more a forum for expanding your social life.
At the moment we meet every week on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Fortnightly we have a mixed age meetup with about 50 people, and the other fortnight we have age themed meetups (between about 35 and 50 people)
Usually at least 1/3 of the people at each meetup are first timers and nervous! Everyone has been in the same boat once. Friendliness is particularly fostered towards new people in this group :)
We also occasionally meet for socials on a Saturday evening and for dinner on a Friday. Smaller meetups for Sunday afternoon tea (for a limited amount of people) will also be introduced soon.
Currently we meet in: Clifton, Park Street, WhiteLadies Rd, Cotham, Redland, Bristol Centre, Gloucester Road, Cheltenham Rd, Bedminster, Totterdown areas.
All weekday meetups currently cost £3 to cover my time, effort and costs. Weekend meetups cost between £3 and £7 (depending on timing, costs and effort.) I receive many compliments for being well organised and for putting people at ease. This is what you're paying for.
At the venue, please ask for Shelley's table, and look out for the Meetup sign on the wall behind or on the table, if appropriate. We will usually have an area reserved for us. Please also read the information for that meetup; there may be specific information for that meetup location.
NB. People often ask me what age members are. I have almost as much knowledge as you do about this, from people's profiles on here. With the amount of people in this group, I suspect there are members of all adult ages here, and this seems to be expanding as more age themed meetups are introduced. The fortnightly mixed meetups are very mixed.
Please note that you can adjust your settings to decide which notifications you receive from this group.
I'll look forward to chatting with you!
*PS. One of our members has informed me that his name came up in web listings for social events, after clicking 'attending' to an event organised by another website/ social group. I don't know if this happens with Meetup. Perhaps if you are worried about this happening to you, use a pseudonym.*
