This is not your typical dinner and board game couples group. Don't get me wrong.. We love to eat and we will be doing lots of it... but for sanity reasons we would like to think Dallas has more to offer. My husband and I love the outdoors so when weather permits, we are going outside! Preference will always go to outdoor activities like camping, biking, kayaking, water sports, boating, SUP, etc., but because we are limited on those things in Dallas I will be mixing in other unique and fun activities like karaoke, competitive things, eating,drinking, festivals, sporting events, concerts, disc golf, go kart racing, poker nights, BBQs, house parties, 5k's, scavenger hunts, pub crawls, comedy shows, and whatever else sound interesting. Ideally this will be a great group of outdoorsy people that are fun and down for adventure, and not a bunch of indoorsy people that only really want to go to dinner. Every once in awhile we will spice it up with weekend trips. Activities and events will be geared towards late 30's to early 40's.
1) ATTENDANCE POLICY: I have one hard rule. I have NO interest in people who are inconsiderate or flakes. I pay for this meetup monthly out of my own pocket and I spend countless of my free hours researching awesome gatherings and experiences for the group. If you no show to even ONE event you will be removed immediately. If you RSVP regularly but " something always comes up" c'mon.. It is obvious what is happening. You will also be removed after we get done laughing at your " last minute emergencies.. You know.... cat stuck on a roof, or boss called me in last minute, or I forgot about a family reunion, etc... Or whatever else you make up because you just don't feel like it or found something better to do..
2) PARTICIPATION: I want this to be a very active group. Request to be a member because you want to start making new friends and participating right away. If you have been an inactive member in 3 months you are subject to be removed. If you got pregnant, mother in law moved in for 6 months.. Whatever.. Cool. I get it. We all have "real" lives... If you can't participate for a while just say so in comments or email and it won't seem like you are not interested and all is good... .
3) PROFILE PICTURE: It is awesome that you have 15 animals and super cute kids but.... This is a couples group so you must have a couples picture to be accepted.
4) COMPATABILITY: If you are too conservative, judgmental of people who don't share your beliefs, uptight, offended by drinking or bad words, afraid to break your nails, flaky, too religious, dramatic, two faced, afraid to get dirty, racist, don't consider yourself fun..... this is not the group for you!
We are very excited about this group and know you will be too!
