What we're about
Hi, living in a big city like London things can be daunting sometimes.
Everybody is around you, but at times you can feel alone.
Maybe you may of moved to the area and now seeking new friendships.
Or a relationship ends and you feel you are not as connected.
Close friends might of have married, had children, moved away,grown distant
You may feel you would like some more varied friends with new interest.
It's ok to feel alone, or at times lonely, its natural and yet in society, stigma is attached to these natural feelings.
But Millions of people feel they would like quality friendships, people that care, that listen, that can become close friendships where friends keep in touch on a regular basis.
Meetup and other social sites are amazing, but these communities sometimes lack the close friendships that people require, as part of the genuine human connection.
This meetup group will be different, we aim to produce closer bonds with each other, a regualr whatsapp group outside of the group, meet regularly and form meaningful genuine friendships slowly and over time.
But you! Yes you! Personally have to put in the time and effort, it does not come to you, what you put in is what you get out of the group..
So please do not click on this group and do nothing about it, it is an active group, so please come along and build new friendships and see things like loneliness improving as you become more connected with others.
Ask yourself, how did you get to know your original close friends?
At work? School? Neighbour? Hobby Group, Community or Club? Family member or Family Friend?
When you think about it, it may be likely those friendships have developed overtime and not in one meeting.
Well same with this group, coming once will not do it, it will take time to get to know people and develop those friends. Friendship is earned!
As mentioned what you put in is what you get out of the group.
So do not delay, please sign up for our first event!
I am very down to earth and will make you feel welcome and pleased that you decided to come along to the event.
There will be other people there to meet so lets slowly, together, take it from there and look forward to improving better friendships, being more connected and saying goodbye to feeling alone in London!
See you at our events!
