Bring my Single Friend Event ... aka Date My Friend! *Preferred List Event Only*

Okay, we all know a lot of exceptional people. Some of them happen to be single. And a lot of us are always complaining about how we never meet anyone decent to date. Let's get together and do what works when it comes to dating -- meeting people through friends and seeing immediately if there's chemistry.

Our fantastic EWNYC members will review all the great single friends we know and invite a few of them to join us for an evening of fun. Doesn't matter who they are, there is only one criteria that they need and that's to be completely single. The great thing is that these are people whose 100% awesomeness can be vouched for -- none of us are friends with serial killers, right? It's not mandatory but you should probably be single also, you might make a connection here of your own.

The Rules ...

  • In order to keep the ratio of the sexes somewhat even, we do not want to discourage members from attending if they do not have a friend to come with. For example, if your friends, coworker, gym buddy and lunch mate is busy simply come. Olisa will be your single friend
  • There are no age restrictions regarding the friends you can bring. EWNYC has members of all ages and who are we to stand in the way of the blossoming of a May-December romance.
  • If you would like to attend you cannot bring a friend you must come alone. We are a friendly group and enjoy the time in this intimate setting. Olisa will hand out name tags and introduce you to members.
  • A list will be created of all attendees so when RSVP'ing. If you are not able to attend, change your rsvp and do not keep others from attending

Spread The Word ...

I emailed the idea for this event to a few select friends and you would be amazed at how many liked the idea and would like to attend. Start talking to the single people you know and I'm sure you'll get a bunch of enthusiastic responses.

 

Best Regards

Olisa

      Fantastic event. Great job Olisa. I agree with you on privacy and pictures at these events. Attendance doesn't mean consent to all pictures, and while some people may not mind, photographers should respect boundaries.

    I for one don't think its necessary for people to have pictures up, especially with some of he weirdos. In some of our personal lives we like to keep our day to day after work, school hours to ourselves from prying employers, coworkers, fellow student and former boyfriend or girlfriend. If I want to see you I can wait until the event. I had one guy who kept making every girl take a picture with him at the event. I was making my way over to him and tell him to stop before he saw the look on my face and stop. I have no problem with speaking up for the people in my group, But I always tell them protect yourself

    It was another fun and successful Meetup. Olisa has organized one of the best Meetups in NYC. Having said that, a lot of the promotion for this group is by taking pictures. Pictures allow prospective members an opportunity to see how much fun we have at our events. Occasionally I run into attendees who express to me, that they do not want their pictures taken, sometimes very abruptly and with much attitude. These are public events, held in public spaces and I just want to inform everyone, that this (taking pictures) is what we do at these functions. You know the rest...

      I agree Eric. Pictures are very important and key factor to allow potential new members join the group. Meetup is a public organization and perhaps it's not catered for members who have something to hide with either their personal or professional life. If a member is too shy then a picture might help them overcome that challenge.

    Nice pictures Eric. I always enjoy viewing them.

    I'm sorry I got there so late (at 10:45) so most have left by then, only a few remained, but it was nice talking to them. Nice to talk with you again Joe and Kathy.

      We ended up leaving around 2:30am.

    It was okay. I might have enjoyed it more if I had gotten there much earlier than I did and been able to meet more people, and have been able to get drinks during the 2 hours they were offered at reduced price.

    Unfortunately my friend Steve aka +1's father passed away this morning, I will not be able to attend. I apologize for the last minute cancellation but this leaves 2 spots open for someone else. Maybe next time.

    January 19, 2013

    • Lee

      Hi Dina! My condolences to you & your friend Steve. Is your (1) spot still available?

      January 19, 2013

      I am coming w/ my +1, see you all

      January 19, 2013

  • Sonia

    Most of the time not everyone that has RSVP shows up. I hope anyone that's not coming updates their RSVP and leave their spot open for someone on the waiting list.

    1 · January 18, 2013

    • eric

      I agree Sonia. There are so many members who are not responsible and inconsiderate of others. They should be removed from the group if they don't update their intentions.

      January 19, 2013

  • Peter

    ill also be coming alone, you can message me if you're on the waiting list.

    January 18, 2013

  • Allen L.

    When I signed up on the waitlist I put down 3 friends that I would like to bring. Can I bring them? How do I sign them up?

    Hi! I was confirmed w/ a plus one for this event (and have the confirm email) but I'm not on the list! What happened to my r.s.v.p.?

  • Olisa

    PLEASE BE KIND AND LIMIT COMMENTS ON THE BOARD. I WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO SEE ANY UPDATES I POST WITHOUT THE EXCESSIVE COMMENTS. THERE WILL BE A LIMIT ON THE EVENT SORRY. I WILL TRY TO INCREASE ONCE THE SPACE IS MADE AVAILABLE.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
