Let's face it. It's really hard these days to meet people, especially if you just moved to Edmonton and know nobody, or you have lived here your entire life and don't have a lot of friends. On top of it, it's just as hard (if not harder) to find someone to have a relationship with.
My reason and goal for starting this group is to help bridge these gaps and create an avenue for people in their 30s and 40s to meet each other and form lasting friendships, and as an added bonus, possible future relationships. I want to be clear that the focus of this group is NOT to matchmake, but to meet like-minded people who are in the same age range.
In terms of outings, we do a little bit of this, a little bit of that and have just a few laughs in between (actually, that’s a lie, we have a lot of laughs). We explore the city, find hidden gems and eat really good food. But above all, we have fun.
Disrespect, harassment and discrimination will not be tolerated. I ask that people are nice and genuine toward one another.
Please note: If a Meetup doesn't get enough interest, I will cancel the event, as I believe that defeats the purpose of this group and Meetup in general.
***** NO SHOW POLICY *****
If you RSVP "yes" for an event, but don't show up, consider that strike one.
If you RSVP "yes" for a second time, but don't show up, I will remove you from the group.
Some people may not think that no-shows are a big deal, but it matters to me. As the organizer of this group, I want this to be successful, and it gives me an idea as to how many people are coming to a Meetup. Frankly, it's not fair to the rest of the people who are attending, as well.
