Topic: Romantic Love

The topic, "Romantic Love", was selected and won the vote at our 5/7/2014 meeting in Concord. The member who proposed the topic also thought it would be interesting to examine the notion of "love at first sight," as well as the attachment that forms after having been with someone for years and after the initial stages of romantic love have passed.

I'd like to thank the members of our meetup group who are helping me to co-organize this cafe in Concord.

All members are encouraged to RSVP. If you are unable to make it to Concord, but know others who are interested, please spread the word!

While there are some vending machines next to our meeting room, there will not be other food available, so I encourage you to bring your own food and beverage to the meeting room. There are a number of restaurants nearby, as well as a Peets Coffee & Tea.

There is a public parking garage next to the Plaza Tower that offers free parking, and the garage should have ample parking at the time of our meeting.

Please make sure to RSVP only if you are able to attend since RSVPs are limited. If you RSVP, but need to change your plans, please make sure to come back to the meetup site to change your RSVP (at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting) to provide others with an opportunity to RSVP for this meetup.

One of the members who is co-organizing this group with me will greet you in the lobby of the building and will escort / direct you to our meeting room. We meet on the first floor of the building.

We look forward to seeing you!

    You folks were so gentle with this first-timer, thank you! The experience was just what I was hoping for, varied insight expressed with respect. I enjoyed it, but it may be too early in our relationship to use the "L" word. ;-)

    Even though love is too vast to pin down with words, this was a truly invigorating discussion! As Alan Watts said -- " No one's mouth is big enough to utter the whole thing."

    A great meeting as usual. A lot of interesting viewpoints regarding, romantic attraction and how it can evolve and grow in depth over time. Also, how it can change and lead to other experiences and worthwhile relationships. I am looking forward to next months topic on "Ego" and how others think about what Ego means to them. Thank you Lawrence!

      Thanks, Lorraine. Please look for the sign at the front entrance of the building, which has a mobile phone number you can call if you arrive after 7 PM and don't see anyone at the front entrance to greet you.

    Any other suggestions for some new members without a computer trying to RSVP? The help site does not have any answer to that question. Nancy
