A group to meet other people in the Mankato area.   I wanted an alternative to going to the bar and online dating.    These are events where singles can meet other singles, or really anybody can meet and make new friends, whether you are single or not.  Online dating is okay, but in a lot of ways it falls short.  I thought it would be nice to have some events in the area where singles can have a nice night out to meet other singles, without too much pressure.  A few examples of events:  a catered dinner with drinks and board games, grilling in the park, volleyball, skiing at Mount Kato, wine tasting, kayaking, trivia night at a local pub, etc.

It's just about socializing and anybody in the group can schedule an event.

For those of you who are wondering what it's like to go to one of these events.  It's really just about socializing and meeting new people, and less about dating.  If you meet someone, that's awesome, but you shouldn't not attend because you think it might be slightly awkward because it's a dating event, or you don't see anyone attending that you think you would be romantically interested in.  It's just about socializing and having something different to do.  Any anyone can schedule an event, so if there isn't an event scheduled, you should schedule one.
