Newbie Meet and Greet

  • September 21, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Tracey's House

We haven't had one of these in a while!

The idea is to come together, both new members and old, and get to know each other a little in a safe and welcoming space.

My place isn't as comfortable as Jill's (no carpet!), but I have plenty of chairs and seating, so I think we can make do :)

The plan is: doors open at 6pm, and at 7:30 (or so) we'll all gather and go around the circle introducing ourselves - whatever you want to tell! Your name, some history, what you're looking for, why you are interested in this group - these are some things people have shared. Some people are looking for potential dating (or other) partners; others are just there looking for people to hang out with. I think we're all there to find people that we don't have to hide parts of ourselves from.

And then - whatever! Usually lots of talking and laughing and eating tasty food and drinking tasty wine :)

Please bring a dish to pass or some libation to share; my house generally has 3+x cats (x is usually not more than 2 kittens), so be warned if you are allergic. Smoking is allowed outdoors.

I think that's it! This is a members-only event, although if you have a bi-curious friend who wants to come along, please feel free to bring her!

    Thank you Tracey for hosting. It was really nice to meet everyone and hear your individual stories. Hopefully, next time I won't be under the weather.

    Thanks so much for coming out, everyone! I had a great time and really enjoyed meeting all of you (or seeing those of you I hadn't seen in a while!). Please feel free to find me on facebook and make friends (Tracey Turko Callison). Hope to see all of you again soon!

    It was great meeting everybody! I put up the few pictures I took. I think the kitten was the star of the show! Sue, did you take "Dessert" home?

    I'm seeking friendship as well as possible a relationship that expands to a deeper level. The last meet up was a lot of fun and everyone there was kind and gracious. I'd encourage anyone who maybe shy, or timid to just give it a try. Someone there will connect with you and make you feel more calm. Thanks to Tracey for opening her home to us all!!!

    I haven't been out in forever. I probably don't know many of the girls here anymore. I need to come out more and maybe bring a friend along.

    I just joined this group and am really pleased to see how active you are. I am very interested in coming to the newbie event next tweekend but am wary about just showing up at someone's house by myself. Is there anyone, maybe someone who works in RTP or lives near Carrboro that would be willing to grab coffee this week so I could at least have a contact before I jump in with both feet?

    September 14, 2013

    • Katie

      OK. How about 4:30?

      September 16, 2013

    • Julie K

      Katie, I had to smile when I read this because Tracey did the same thing for me about a year or so ago for exactly the same reason and it really did make it much easier for me. It sounds like you are covered but message me if you'd like to connect with someone else before the meetup. happy to chat or meet for coffee (I live in SW Durham, very near Tracey actually.) I look forward to meeting you sooner or later!

    I'm new, I'm timid and, on top of all that my English is not that good. So, be gentile with me, ok? I'm excited to meet you.

      It's a beautiful place in D.F (Mexico City), have you read the letters between she and Diego Rivera? Those are really amazing love letters.

    I am new to the whole meetup concept as well exploring my dual attraction. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and I like the line from the invite about finding people that we don't have to hide parts of ourselves from.
