Inspired by the crazy group on How I Met Your Mother... We’re a fun, rowdy bunch… Think... that big, random group of crazy friends in college that always had the best stories. We're 25-40 mostly, men & women, gay, straight, single, coupled… as long as you can hold your own at a Karaoke bar, tell a good dirty joke or pull the crazy answer to that final trivia question out of your a**, you’ll fit right in.

I have a feeling you'll enjoy our group if you're looking to expand your social circle with cool men and women, keep it fresh, have some random adventures and explore all the free(ish) fun this city has to offer.

Strictly Social is all about helping people build fun, platonic friendships on the cheap, enjoying Chicago culture and building an open accepting community to help foster the fun. We encourage an entertaining, laid back, open environment where people can come hang out, escape the voracious singles scene, and just be themselves. Obviously, if members develop something more than friendships, that's awesome, but we encourage members to think of this as an escape from the dating and networking scenes.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
