Speed Friending! More Fun, Less Awkward

This might be the very reason why you joined this group--to meet awesome, likeable ladies like yourself. But sometimes at an event, it might be hard to have a quality conversation with someone and really get to know them. This is one opportunity to do that!

Here's how it works. You'll have 5-10 minutes to talk with each person who attends, just on your own, just one on one. But to ensure that we get to the good stuff and skip the small talk, you'll be prompted with thought-provoking questions like, "What's the most eye-opening experience you've had that taught you something about yourself?" Where we're from and what we do for a living are interesting for sure, but the conversation starters will help get the ball rolling so that we can know each other on a bit of a deeper level.

You'll also exchange information so that conversations and connections can continue beyond this night. It will be FUN! I promise. You might even end up meeting a new best friend.

You'll need to bring--

1)A snack/drink for everyone to share.

2)An open mind and the willingness to share things about yourself.

    Hey ladies!

    Info for this weekend: My zipcode is 80122, so anyone who wants to carpool can start asking around now.

    Also, I will have some music, but if anyone wants to bring mp3 players/phones to expand the mix that would be great. We can easily plug them into the wall, so no worries on the 'dying' front!

    Lastly, I will provide hot apple cider/rum punch and tea to drink, but some wine would also be appreciated. Maybe the snack theme could be "Thanksgiving Leftovers"? ;)

    I look forward to seeing you all & have a Happy Thanksgiving!

      You can count on me for a bottle or two of wine.

    Since this seems to be a popular event, can we have another on Decl 14th or 15th? I'm open to hosting :)

      We have a cookie exchange that weekend, and I try not to have 2 events at the same time, but I was thinking of doing this again in January or February!

      November 25, 2013

    • Mariah L.

      good to know and thanks for clarifying that!

      November 25, 2013

  • Joy

    I may be able to host this--as long as people aren't tired of coming to my place! ;)

      Joy for the three-peat! Going for MVP of Nerdy 30s! That would be great, Joy. You save me from the groveling and begging song and dance.

    I'm interested in this event, and considering how boring Thanksgiving can get I'll probably want to get out of the house... but depending on how holiday plans develop, I may have to back out of this later if family things come up.

    • Brittany

      Yeah, I debated on whether or not to plan anything this weekend. I know the holidays might make it hard for some. But if it's a success we'll definitely do it again.

    Brittany, I have to work that day but don't know when I'll be done. Is it okay if I RSVP now and change later if needed?

    October 14, 2013

    • Brittany

      Yep! Totally fine.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
