What we're about
For those of us who are introverts/loners and/or "live inside" our heads, making new friends can be more of a challenge since even the chattier types of us tend to be more quiet overall in new social situations. We don't mind awkward silences and tend to "observe" others for awhile first before joining in.
Or, we don't fit into the typical "extrovert" social cliques because the idea of meeting others at bars, clubs, or the usual social groups, makes us cringe when we'd rather go to a bookstore, museum, theater, park, library, (our own computers) or other "low key" areas/activities. Our nervous systems get easily overstimulated so we need some "space" from too much of it sometimes.
I wanted to start an activity group for those like us. Even though we don't mind doing things alone, even introverts crave some friendship and it gets old doing things alone all the time. Personally, I love movies and I thought a movie group would be a nice non-threatening way to meet new people with no unrealistic expectations of each other. There are many groups in The Woodlands area aimed at people in their 40s or older, so I wanted to keep this meet up group targeted at a younger demographic. Sorry, at this time, you'll need to be in your 20s to join the group (although we won't exclude you if you're in your early 30s)!
Keep in mind that this is not a singles group, but just a laid back activity group. (But if you meet someone you spark with, we won't stand in the way. We're all adults). Friends and family of members are welcome at most of our meetups, as long as they are appropriate and respectful to other members.
