Thank you for showing interest in ATTRACT-ACTIVE-UNLIMITED. Please read ALL of the below to decide if this group is for you.
Attract-ACTIVE was created with the intention of bringing any and all active people together to share events and activities that offer a large variety of experiences rarely found in other groups. Unlike other groups with a single organizer, EVERYONE in Attract-Active can post their own events, provided they are approved by the main Organizer. Members are HIGHLY encouraged to think outside the box (e.g. something beyond clubs or bars whenever possible) and find something unique to share with the group.
****THERE IS ONE CATCH****
Being an Attract-ACTIVE member places heavy emphasis on the word "ACTIVE". We want people who join this group to actually SHOW UP to events, not just lurk behind their computers like weirdos. In order to keep a strong, participating base of members, we ask that you attend at least ONE event every 3 to 4 months to keep your membership *ACTIVE*. Quarterly member audits will be conducted to weed out anyone who's been inactive for more than four months. To avoid getting the boot, we ask you do the following:
Option 1 - You must attend at least ONE event every 4 months, or you'll be at risk for removal.
Option 2 - If you are not attending events every 4 months (possibly because no events caught your interest?...), you may POST/HOST an event in exchange to keep your membership ACTIVE. It can be an event to take place no sooner than a week away, or be as far out as a couple months. Make sure your event is detailed with info, date, time, place, costs, contact info, etc. Be informative and give it some visual appeal to attract members. **No repeat weekly events**. Please contact Mike JP to help/ideas with posting events.
Please keep in mind, if you get removed from the group from inactivity, you won't be able to rejoin for another 4 months. You must RSVP responsibly. 2 No-Shows to RSVP critical events and you forfeit your spot in the group.
****THE FINE PRINT****
*You must be between the ages of 21 to 50 years of age.
*No posting events that take place sooner than a week away, unless approved.
*Limited bars/clubs. Exceptions are given if there is a special, infrequent event in that venue.
*RSVP responsibly. If you can't make an event, update your RSVP or note it in the comments section after as a courtesy to the organizer. Two (2) "No Shows" to RSVP-critical events and you forfeit your spot in the group.
****OUR OTHER MEETUP GROUP****
You're also welcome to join our alternate Meetup group, ATTRACT-ATHLETIC, if you're into events focused more on sports and physical activity through the link below. Also, Attract-Athletic has no member limit, no attendance/hosting requirements and you can't get removed from inactivity.
If any member receives a message from someone they deem as inappropriate or offensive, please message me with the members profile name and I'll personally investigate to have them removed, not just from Attract-Active but from Meetup ENTIRELY. I have a zero tolerance policy on ANY type harassment or bullying of any kind in my group. Anyone found engaging in this behavior will be removed and BANNED.
Though Attract-Active is not a singles group, I acknowledge that many people in Meetup are single and looking. I have to call guys out on this (sorry, but it tends to be guys), but please DO NOT send any messages to women that are rude, sexually aggressive, suggestive or just plain weird/creepy. Not sure if your message is creepy/weird? Here are some guidelines:
(1) Are you complimenting some part of her body or appearance that could be interpreted as sexual? If yes, DON'T.
(2) Are you asking her out on a date when you've NEVER met her? If yes, that can be seen as a little sketchy. It's best to attend an event, see if you have some kind of mutual connection in person first. Then yes, message a lady like a gentleman afterwards.
(3) Are you sending the 'ol "I can't wait to meet you at the next event!" message, while sitting at home in the dark with your shirt off as you massage your crotch in anticipation and you've never met this woman prior at any events? Oh my god! Even I'm pepper-spraying you! Definitely DON'T do that! The lady will absolutely UN-RSVP to avoid you.
Guys/Gals, if you've messaged someone and they didn't respond to something you believe was not at all creepy and just being friendly, don't flip out and start cursing them out. Lame people do that. Always stay classy, regardless.
If anyone (guy or girl) messages you anything rude, weird, or creepy, please let me know. Give me their username. It will be investigated and I WILL PUNT THEM if needed. I want ATTRACT-ACTIVE to be a safe group for all who attend.
