Please take notice: The focus of our group is NOT a dating group, but a social venue meant for individuals who want to broaden their circle of friends regardless of gender.
This is an environment where both men and women can joke around, be themselves and not be concerned with the proverbial "is he trying to hit on me?"
For the Gentlemen:
Greeting women as soon as they join the group is not in your best interest or the groups. Having a man email them as soon as they have joined can be unsettling. Also joining the group and then greeting multiple women can also be unsettling. Most women join the group because it is hard to find friends to go out with when they finally gets some time to go out. Also it is SAFE for women to go out in a group setting. If you email a woman and ask her out or want to chit chat with her and she does not respond back do not keep emailing her. She is not in to you and you are making her uncomfortable. This is not what the group is about. Providing a safe fun environment to hang out is. If you are here to just pick up women, then try one of the "dating" groups instead. If you provide unwanted attention to a member of the group you risk being removed from the group. For the vast majority of the men in this group you are perfect Gentlemen and fun to be around just a few needed some guide lines.
For the Women:
Make sure innocent politeness is not mistaken for something else. Men are looking for friendship also. If you receive unwanted attention from a member of the group let them know your not interested in dating or chatting or what ever. If this doesn’t work please notify me and I will handle it.
On the other side of the coin, if two individuals happen to find each other, well... enjoy each other's meaningful company and conversation, then that is certainly none of my business, and I wish you well.
Also please avoid changing your RSVP within last 24 hours or so if possible since I have to make reservations days before hand. I am sure you can see how that can become a problem. No show, you risk being removed from the group.
