Our group has been meeting at Starbucks since March of 2012. In the beginning we all had a common interest of getting out of the house and having companionship. So we started meeting at Starbucks. It was inexpensive, and convenient. We have kept this meetup event at the same place, the same time and the same day of the week since then and our numbers have grown from the original 6 to over 30 members in attendance every week.
Whether we were new in town, single and alone, many of us sat day after day watching the TV and looking at the four walls. This all changed when we started meeting each other in this group. This meetup has changed our lives. We have met some fabulous people and made great friends. If you know of what I speak, and are in the space we were, this meetup has been created just for you. There are many in the group that were in the same spot. We came together to share and support one another as we went through various transitions in our lives. Things go so much better when you have someone or a lot of someones to share your life with.
We're asking you to come and join us. You may wonder how to find us. Well we are the large group of people moving chairs around and taking over the coffee shop. Depending on the weather, we sit inside or outside and sometimes both. Ask someone if this is the meetup group, grab a chair, sit down and tell the person next to you that you are new. That is all you need to do. After that you are one of us!
The first few minutes you're there you may feel butterflies in your stomach, but trust me it will only last a moment. You won't have to worry about not knowing anyone as you will be immediately welcomed with open arms and hearts. Everyone that attends on a regular basis, has been there and done that and are grateful that we endured a few minutes of discomfort to enjoy the beginnings of making great friendships. Don't worry about not knowing anyone, you'll be greeted almost at the door and made to feel welcome. Each week you will meet someone new and our regular attendees will be there week after week too. After awhile you will be a regular too and be a part of our wonderful singles family. I do hope to see you there.
