Welcome to DC GenX-Ms! Did you know that there are more than 600 GenXers in Metro Washington Mensa? We should get together more often than once or twice a month, right? There are so many fun and interesting things to do in DC that I decided a Meetup group would better accommodate our members. I encourage everyone who's interested to suggest and/or plan an event at will. I especially encourage those of us who are more low-key and introverted to suggest and plan events that they find attractive. More than half of Mensans identify themselves as introverted, so you're not alone. This group is for members of Metro Washington Mensa born between 1961 and 1981. In general, guests, significant others, and friends are welcome at GenX-Ms events. However, if an event organizer wishes to specify Mensans only, or another subset of GenX-Ms, that's totally acceptable. Sometimes you just gotta be around people who get you. ;-) Welcome to the group!
