**Please read all of the following before requesting to be a member**
We are a 'mingles' group, not a 'singles' group. We have many single members, but we also have attached members as well. I started this group as a way to meet new people & expand my social circle. We meet regularily and do a variety of different activities with the goal of making new friends and possibly a connection with another member. We'll also use the meetup time to discuss dating, tell stories (good & bad), give eachother advice & help eachother find what we're looking for in life. This is not designed to be a 'hook-up' group. It's designed to help people of any age meet new friends & mingle. The purpose of this group is to help people make a connection. Whether it be as friends, or more. This group is open to anyone looking to meet people but please keep in mind that some members are looking for a relationship & I encourage members to mingle. So if you are in a relationship, please feel free to bring your single friends or just come as you are.
We hold similar events as other groups, but we are definitely not like other groups;
All our attendee counts for past events are 100% accurate
We don't "share" or cross-promote other groups or events & vice versa
We are about quality of events, not quantity of events
We are about quality of members, not quantity of members
Inactive members are removed after 6 months (why join a group that you don't attend)
Even when there is a wait-list for events, we do our best to allow everyone to come out (a great reason why we don't cross-promote events between groups)
We don't tolerate 'party crashers' (people that show up without being on the rsvp list). It's not fair to rest of the members.
If you're shy about coming out, shoot me a message. I'm sure we can find a way to make it more comfortable for you.
I make a strong effort to go around and talk with my members at each meetup. We're not strangers...we're all friends here.
New members will be removed if they are a no-show to their first rsvp'd event
We don't have events every day or every other day...everyone should have a life outside of Meetup.
We only want happy people to join us. We don't like or condone negative attitudes or behavior.
Our members range in age from early 20's to early 60's. We don't discriminate based on age, but you do have to be young at heart. We are a fun group & typically do a lot of things that younger people enjoy doing. The majority of people that come out are between their early 30's to mid 40's. But with that being said, we have numerous members outside that age range that come out & still party like rock stars! We're all about meeting people & having fun!!
Organizing & planning events is a time-consuming job so we want our members to show up when they RSVP for an event. We have a 3-strike rule for no-shows. If you are a no-show 3 or more times, you may be asked to leave to the group. Also, please note the following; cancelling within 6 hours of any event with a wait-list will count as a no-show & cancelling within 1 hour of any event will also count as a no-show. This is simply because RSVP's take up space that can be used by a member that wants to come and we often have limited seating. We want you to come out & we hope you also want to come out.
We charge an annual membership fee of $5.00 per member to cover costs associated with the running & organizing of the group. These can be paid through Paypal, or at your first event. Please offer it to me as I don't like asking for it (but I will).
All new members must be approved by an organizer, simply because we have had some issues with fake profiles and inappropriate messages. I may ask for a cell number in order to contact you prior to being accepted. Please do not join if you are not willing to provide a cell number. Keep in mind I am messaging you with my personal number as well so there is definitely a level of trust on both sides. New members must have a picture of themselves prior to being accepted.
Do not join if your main goal is to promote events for other groups. We have our own events & I typically don't 'share' events. There are a few groups out there now that all share the same events and that is not the direction I wish to follow.
If you are unable to make an event, please do not RSVP 'no' simply becasue that just sends me far too many emails.
I'm open to any suggestions, comments or questions from everyone. I hope we see you at a meet-up soon.
