I created this group for people like me who want to get out and have fun doing things with others in a friendly and relaxing environment. This is called the "not-so-social" group because we are geared towards those who have trouble getting out there to socialize and meet new people (maybe you're a loner or outcast, have few or no friends, get social anxiety or are socially awkward, are just very quiet and shy, are a geek or nerd, don't seem to meet people that enjoy the same things as you, etc.). But even so, anyone is welcome to join regardless of social skills or personality...variety is the spice of life!
This group has been around for over a year and it has been very successful in making friends and creating something that is similar to a family for the regulars who come to meetups. We range in ages from 20s to 80s and the meetups are almost always equally balanced with different ages.
For each meetup, I limit the number of RSVPs so that it is easier to get to know everyone and to avoid overwhelming the meetups. The limits are also in place for other reasons such as limited parking space, reservation size, etc. Everyone is welcome to bring a guest by marking a +1 when signing up for a meetup. Dogs are also allowed anytime there is a meetup that is dog friendly (such as hiking).
I schedule a variety of things like hiking/walking, seeing a movie, going out to eat, bowling, mini-golfing, seeing a play, going to a zoo, museum, or arcade, etc. I will not be scheduling events that are party-like or revolve around alcohol. If anyone has an idea for a meetup, please let me know.
Meetups are pretty much only Friday nights, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Please take a moment to read the rules for this group on the Pages section, if you decide to join. Thanks!
