See, here's the problem with most "singles" groups. There's a lot of pressure to be, well, single. There's speed-dating, 3Ms (Meat Market Meetups), and just an overall pressure to meet and mingle. As an older single guy that isn't into loud meat markets, 6 minute speed dates, or the intense "first interview date", I thought, "It would be really nice to have a group that was easygoing, relaxed, and just a lot of fun. And yet....full of singles too!" :) Well, search as I might, I couldn't find such a group. So, I MADE one.
This group is intended to take the stress out of "socializing" for singles, but still give you lots of easygoing opportunities to connect and socialize. We like to get together, have fun, and yes, dance and party. But you won't have to "dress up" in this group. And you won't find us at those fancy bars where two drinks becomes a $20 bar tab! "Dress to impress" gatherings...We want to meet YOU, not your shoes ;) Packed, noisy, meat markets....ain't gonna happen. Pressure to mingle and be on...ain't gonna-- well, you get the idea :) The whole premise of this group is to facilitate gatherings for singles where you don't feel the pressure to "be single". And yet.... you can still enjoy knowing everyone else is too! ;) Just hang out, be casual, enjoy yourself and have a good time along the way. It's the perfect group to network, meet new friends, or perhaps even that someone special. And of course, to have fun too. which is what it's all about.
Meetups for this group may be anything from Free Saturday at the Museum, Intellectual Discussion groups, bowling, yoga and meditation classes, karaoke...who knows? But also plan on some good old fashioned Happy Hours sprinkled in liberally. The common theme will be safe, enjoyable, easygoing, stress free, and fun events. And unless otherwise specified, dress is always casual. That's because we think comfortable clothes make for comfortable people. So show up, hang out with some great people, and don't feel any pressure to be "on".
