Please Read.......Very Important words of wisdom to having fun in the Meetup world!!

Hello Everyone,


I haven't sent out an email in a while.  I know you people who have been around, miss them. :-)

Please read all the way to the end, it can be your social game changer and worth the extra minute of your life, thank you!!

Guess what the first subject is about?!  2 Subjects!


No Shows!  They have been rising again, I am hoping the reason is because of the hundreds of new members over the last few months, who innocently, does not realize the negative effects it can have on a group, it's Organizers who work hard to set up fun events and the venues who invite us in for a good time.

We have many new members since the last email about "no shows".  If you reserve a spot for an event and you cannot make it, please change your RSVP so we can get a more accurate count for the venue.  If you see an event listed in two different groups, you only need to sign up in one of the groups.

Please go to the pages tab to read the No Show Policy.


You may not realize it, but If you "no show" to an event, you are being very rude to other members who want to go, especially if there is a waiting list.

We don't have rude members, right?

Let's all have fun, be kind and considerate to others!!


2nd....Don't stop reading yet! :-)

How to make the most of your Meetup/Mingling In Atlanta Experience.......All members should make note of this.

EXPECTATIONS of going to an event.......I have noticed over the years of being in meet up groups something very important to having fun and wanting to come out to another event......It's called EXPECTATIONS!!  Keep them realistic....What do I mean by that?!  Many people expect to make friends and/or meet a man or woman of their dreams at their first event.  999 times out of 1000, it does not work like that! Meet Up/Mingling In Atlanta should be a social tool to use to initiate/DEVELOP/cultivate relationships.  You can not do this from one event.

Here comes the words of wisdom/experience......

A SUCCESSFUL EXPECTATION IS......If you meet and talk to 1 new person, male or female, you have been to a very successful event.  Yes, having fun at an event is truly that simple.  IF, You keep that as an expectation, you will look forward to your next event.

I welcome any positive and constructive comments.

I look forward to seeing everyone out having fun!!!

I look forward to the free Jazz concert at Fanoos Persian Restaurant.  Great food!

Keep on Smiling!
