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. We are all very friendly. Everyone is welcome, as long as you are friendly, too! There are no age restrictions, as long as you are over 21. The group is open to everyone: singles, couples, married, 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. 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 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 your photo 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 gets sent to the more than 3,350 RSS members. (Don't worry, they won't all rsvp for the same event! ;) ) Just make sure it isn't "self promotion" or marketing for your business--or it will be deleted. Only members who have attended at least 3 recent events may post Suggested Meetups. Just don't be dorky about it and set up a Happy Hour on a Monday or bingo on a Friday ;). And make sure you set up a location and date, because otherwise it is just an "idea."
If you have an idea for a Meetup but don’t want to organize 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 RSS events!!
