The East Bay Young Professionals Social Group (EBYPSG) is a diverse group of active people in their 20s-40s. Our backgrounds and ethnicities vary greatly, but the one thing we have in common is a sincere desire to develop meaningful and lasting friendships. Whether it is an organized activity or simply chatting over coffee, we have fun and enjoy each other’s company regardless of the setting.
The group is open to both single and married people as this is truly a social group without the “dating” overtones of other groups. The group is relatively small. We have no desire to have hundreds of members. We value a smaller group of friends that we know very well. We are also very active. Nearly all members participate in multiple meetups per month and many of us get together several times per week. So, although we use meetup.com to post events, we prefer to think of ourselves as a large group of friends. As you can see, this is not your typical meetup group. So, if you are looking to find that “special someone” or trying to find an activity to add to your list every few months, there are so many other groups that would better fill your needs.
We are selective in accepting new members, but this has nothing to do with being elitist or snobby. Rather it has to do with ensuring that each new member is a good fit to our growing circle of friends. New members are usually accepted with a chance to “test drive” the group. This allows us to see how we mesh with the new person, along with allowing the new people a chance to see if this group is what they are looking for. (New members are typically given about 2 months to attend at least 3 events as a try out period for this).
The activities are usually only limited by our imagination and interest from the other members. We have many popular events such as dinners out, pot lucks, game nights, and movies. We also have events like hiking, bowling, dancing, ice skating, biking, running, and Broadway shows in SF. There are occasionally big events that include overnight trips to Tahoe, trips to Napa, and even camping in Yosemite. If that wasn’t enough, there are also initial plans for some international trips!
Thank you for the interest in our group and if it sounds like a good fit for you, we can’t wait to meet you.
