This is a social group for women who struggle with shyness and/or introversion, social anxiety and feelings of social awkwardness due to the above. We aim to get to know each other as individuals, improve our interpersonal skills and confidence, and foster new friendships. The activities in this group may include coffee/tea get-togethers, picnics, adventures, museum visits, movies, dinners, book discussions, etc. Please note, this group does not offer workshops for shyness/communication skills, etc.
If any of the following characteristics applies to you, this may be the right group for you:
You… - are often quiet in social situations (especially in larger groups). - find small talk difficult and tiring. - have low self-esteem and confidence. - often feel disconnected and unable to relate to others. - find it difficult to make friends. - dislike cliques(!) and seek fun times with others!
NOTE: I've found that people request to join the group and for whatever reason do not attend. If you do not attend a Meetup within 3 months of joining, I will consider you inactive and remove you from the group. There is no point in joining if you won't attend any of the events so take this into consideration.
Also, I've had to become more strict about attendance due to constant no-shows and late cancellations (cancelling a few hours before a Meetup without explanation). Please respect the rules and the group or you risk being removed without notice. Thank you.
