This is a social group for ladies, ages 21-34, in the Tampa Bay area looking for new girlfriends. We all know that making friends can be somewhat intimidating, so hopefully this group can help eliminate that! In this group, we're looking for fun-loving girls who want to leave the cattiness and drama at the door and discover true friends to rely on.
Tampa Bay Girlfriends is an open group. Although the age suggestion is 21-34, it's not a requirement!
This group will mix both daytime meetups and evening meetups on the weekends and during the week. Meetups will mostly be local (ie Tampa area, Brandon, Ybor, St. Petersburg), and kept relatively inexpensive. Meetups could range anywhere from shopping trips, beach days, movie nights, wine bars, dinner out, dancing, home parties, bowling, cooking/baking nights..etc. As was already said, this is an open group, so if any member has suggestions for meetups, let the organizer know or feel free become an event host and host meetups. (Event hosts who regularly host events will be exempt from dues)
A few guidelines have been put in place for this group to remain successful:
1) Each member will be responsible for paying $5 annually through the meetup site's link for payment. These dues will be used to cover meetup membership expenses, they will not be used for a profit. It is each member's responsibility to make sure her dues are paid on time. Members who do not pay dues will be removed from the group. There will be no refunds made to members who chose to leave the group after paying, or who are removed due to lack of participation or being a no-show.
2) Members who are inactive for 3 months, and do not notify the organizer of any outside circumstances, will be removed from the group. We want to keep this group active. You can of course join back up if you become active again.
3) Please use good judgment when you RSVP for events. There is a strict no-tolerance policy for anyone who is a no-show. If you RSVP for an event and are unable to attend it is your responsibility to change your RSVP or contact the event host. Those who fail to do so will be removed from the group.
Come out and enjoy our next meetup! We all look forward to seeing you there.
