My name is Joe. I run another group here on Meetup called "HUG" or the Human Understanding Group.
I started the group after a long and failed relationship, when I finally broke down and connected to my life at age 31. I wrote two Self Growth books and began ACTUALLY challenging my comfort-zone in order to overcome my fear and improve as a person. In HUG, we do things like express our true thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and emotions aloud. We perform honest and fair exercises where we do more than we are used to, such as interacting with strangers, sharing secrets, or doing dares.
I myself have struggled with extreme social anxiety. I had to work to overcome it and it took me time, so I don't expect anxious people to have ground breaking results overnight. But, no matter how uncomfortable conversing with strangers is to you, I think you'll surprise your self if you come to a meetup.
For this group, I'll lead exercises that will ACTUALLY help members get what they want in terms of intimate relationships, whether that means a casual or serious long-term partner, or anything in between.
'The how' involved in getting what you want in terms of a relationship with others, is the same how involved in improving your relationship with your self: you have to honestly understand and communicate what you want, and you have to challenge your self to get it if there is fear holding you back... and there is always fear holding us back before we confront it...
There is no great secret to improving your relationships or building the ones you want. Men and women both operate off of perceived comfort. If you don't make the person you're seeking comfortable, you won't succeed, if you do you might. You have to understand what they want, and you have to understand what you do. If you are comfortable in your own skin, others can be too. If you are honest and fair, there is a much better chance others will be. This leads to both of you (or more) getting what you want- even if that means moving on or just being friends.
Unlike HUG, I am charging for this group because it is more of a personal service that will require more time and effort on my behalf. But you are more than welcome to come check it out for yourself, and if you are not happy with it, I will refund your money.
You should join this group if you want a relationship of any kind, even a very brief physical one, and you want to be better at getting what you want in an honest and moral way.

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.
