Thanks for taking the time to learn a little more about this meetup group. This group plans a variety of different things to do every week. We hope you have fun at our events and that you make some new friends. Although many singles would love to meet a partner, this group isn't about that. It's not about speed dating or mingling parties. Instead, we will schedule events where we can all have fun in a relaxed environment.
People are often curious about the purpose of this group. Do people join the group hoping to find a partner? Of course that is true for some people, but this isn't match.com and shouldn't be used as such. Please do not peruse the profiles and send out emails asking other members for dates. If you want to meet people from the group, come to events and meet them there. Make some new friends and relax.
Please try to follow a few guidelines when signing up for and attending an event:
- RSVPing: Please take RSVPing seriously. When you RSVP for an event, please make every effort to come. Often a host of an event will have put a lot of time and effort to set it up. Sometimes the host might be making reservations on your behalf. Things sometimes do come up which change your plans and sometimes emergencies can surprise you, but when possible please change your RSVP when you know you can't attend an event.
- Dating: Remember this is not a dating site. Do not send messages to other members looking for a date, especially if you have not met them previously at an event. If you want to meet people online, I suggest trying plentyoffish.com or okcupid.com, both free sites. Anyone spamming members will be warned and if the behavior continues, you make be asked to leave the group. In fact, if you are thinking of joining just so you can email other members, please don't bother. Join the group to attend the events and meet people in a much more casual, fun environment.
- Behave like an Adult: Please remember that we are not teenagers, we are not in high school. When you come to an event act like an adult. What does that mean? Don't gossip. Don't spread rumors. And make it a point to treat all our members with respect.
If you can do your best to follow those guidelines, please join!
And if there is an event you would like to propose or host, please speak up, send me an email or post a message on the site here. I'd love to fill the calendar with fun, interesting events. But remember, if you suggest it, I'll probably ask you to host it.
