So get off the screen. Stop being a Facebook personality. TV is not real. You are not living it. Stop watching other people acting out life and live your own. :)
After you attend a few Reston Social Scene events, you'll start to know people in the group. This is a very friendly group. Everyone is welcome to join us, as long as you are friendly, too! Adults of all ages are welcome to join. The group is open to everyone: singles, couples, married, divorced, in a relationship, looking, not looking, don't care--JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN!!
A few suggestions:
When you go to your first few Meetups, please take the initiative to introduce yourself to a few people who you recognize from the photos who rsvp'ed for the event. Tell them you are new and ask them to introduce you to other folks. Don't be shy. We have all been there and were nervous when we first joined the group!
If you can't find the group when you arrive then please post it on the event page. Someone will reply back to you and tell you where the group is. You can also ask the staff at the venue.
We often take photos at events. If a photo of you is posted and you don't like the photo then please un-tag yourself and/or contact one of the organizers and we will take the photo down.
Speaking of photos, you must have a recognizable photo of yourself posted on your profile so that we can recognize you at events.
Feel free to suggest and host a Meetup. All you have to do is post it as a "Suggested Meetup." After 3 people sign up an invite is sent to the more than 3,400+ RSS members. (Don't worry, they won't all rsvp for the same event! ;) ) Be sure that you set up a location and date, because otherwise it is just an "idea."
Also this site costs $140 a year to operate through meetup.com. PLEASE BUY THE ORGANIZER A DRINK! <br>
See you all at future Reston Social Scene events!! :-)
