Dinner and Conversation: How To Meet Someone that Wants to Meet You Too!

The first step to getting a date is meeting someone!  Join us on Wednesday, July 11th, at 6:15 pm for dinner and conversation at La Madeleine Restaurant N to share the best ways to: 

• Get fresh ideas on where to meet new people.

• Find out the best ways to establish a connection with someone knew right from the start.

• Discover the formula for asking someone out for a casual, no-stress date - (women, this is for you too!)

• Tap into the hidden resources you already have to meet someone.

• Avoid the biggest mistakes that can keep another person from connecting with you.

PLUS:

Connect with members of the group, share ideas, and feel more hopeful about starting new relationships!  

Expect a safe, welcoming atmosphere - free of judgment - facilitated round table discussion and sharing up to your comfort level.

Please plan to spend at least $3.00 on food and/or beverages at La Madeleine to cover the room rental cost. Dinner is encouraged, but feel free to purchase anything you'd like to!

I look forward to seeing you there :)

    Hi Aaron, we mentioned that we do like guys to be authentic with their compliments, not to give pick up liners, or try to impress us, and just be yourself.

    You'all did a terrific job at allowing everyone to share their comments and questions equally, without anyone dominating the conversation. Love your authentic sharing, that's what makes this group special :)
    A big shout out to Karl for setting up the fantastic seating arrangement, and pulling tables and chairs together before I even arrived! (And for sharing his 3-step process).
    Each and every one of you made the time we spent together informative and connective!

    Conversation where the women shared authentically some dos and don't and guys shared some specific beliefs that allow risks to be taken in potential dates

    Sorry to change my RSVP at the last minute, but I just realized this was a different location than where I thought....I'll never make it there by that time. Have a great evening.

    June 11, 2014

    • Elizabeth G.

      Hope to see you at another event in the future Robin!

    Hi Friends! If you are on the RSVP list for Wednesday's you may notice that the event is full and we have 20 people waiting for a seat to this event. If you don't think you'll be able to join us, please do your fellow members and myself a big favor and UNRSVP as soon as you can. For those on the waitlist, if you decide you're going to make other plans for Wednesday evening please also UNRSVP so another member can have your spot. Let's work together to grow our community and allow as many people as possible to participate in these events! Thank you.

    I am not sure why I don't seem to get the notices until they are already full for these particular meetups. I can't attend the Sunday ones, only the Wed ones.

      Same foe me, Anatasia and Leigha. I think this meetup gets filled up very quickly

      June 9, 2014

    • Anastasia

      omigosh--I feel really silly now, but I have to teach an art camp this week and it lets out rather late, so I will have to forego this meetup. I will un-RSVP so someone else can have my seat.

      June 10, 2014

  • Elizabeth G.

    Kacie, you've been moved from the waitlist to the confirmed list! Stacy, you may get a seat if someone else cancels.. stay posted!
