Help support your MeetupChip in
Come meet new people or old friends. You might meet someone! Or you might meet a new friend or simply have some fun.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-mi0r0LpXo
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! You can also post that you are a newbie on the event page for the first Meetup that you attend with our group. The event hosts and others in the group will look for you at the Meetup.
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. Many times the doorman will know where the group is located.
When you first join the group, keep in mind that it can be difficult to talk to people at the live music events. You may wish to start out by going to a few Happy Hours so you can have the chance to have talk to some new people without competing with loud music in the background.
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." Just make sure it isn't "self promotion" or marketing for your business--or it will be deleted.
If you have an idea for a Meetup but don’t want to organize and host it then please email Boris or one of the other organizers. We organize happy hours, dinners, concerts, movies, picnics--or whatever you want. Just tell us the event, date/time, and a short description.
Also this site costs $140 a year to operate through meetup.com. PLEASE BUY THE ORGANIZER A DRINK!
See you all at future Reston Social Scene events!! :-)
