This group is for people in the Heidelberg area who would like to meet other people in a friendly and relaxed environment. While other groups focus on specific events or themes, generally our only focus is for people to have a nice time and practice your language and social skills. A lot of people want to improve their German or English. This is a great forum for doing so, while having fun, meeting interesting people, and keeping the spendings to a minimum. Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you for a chat soon.
Whilst one of the points to this group is to make friends, the organisers will not tolerate any unsolicited lewd or aggressive approaches to members. If you hit it off with someone - wonderful! However, this is not a dating group, and we need all of our members to feel comfortable and safe at every event. We will block anyone who does not respect this.
NOTE: Social convention applies also here! If you sign up for a meeting, we count on you actually showing up. Usually we need to make a table reservation, and this is very difficult if we cannot rely on the number of attendees. Of course, we accept that things do change and it really is no problem - if things change and you can't make it, just please change your RSVP to 'not going' on the website. It's really very easy :-) We will keep track of "No shows", i.e. if you say "Yes" and then do not show up without changing your RSVP. After two "No shows" you will be removed from the group and not be able to sign up for future meetings. It may sound harsh, but it's about being respectful to the organizers and the group.
