What we're about

Please Read the entire group description!! - (hit read more)

Are you new to town? Looking to make new friends? Or maybe everyone you know is simply busy and you need things to do! This is the group for you. (My instagram account is @do.all.the.things.va if you'd like to take a look)

Not from Yorktown? - That's ok! We facilitate meetups all over Hampton Roads (Va Beach, Yorktown, Hampton, Norfolk etc).

A little background: I created this group February of 2018 when I came to a turning point in my life. I realized that I am the creator of my own happiness and happiness is something you have to work to achieve. It is all about your attitude and perspective! You have to wake up every day and make the decision to be kind & positive, to network and socialize, to strive for your goals (etc.). I also needed more genuine friends, and I wanted a platform where I can do all the things I desire (preferably not alone). So here it is! Welcome to: #BoredNevermore.

^^ This also is a wonderful platform which allows me to give back to the world. I have suffered from anxiety and depression, and I have known what it is like to feel crushingly alone. The difficulty of trying to make friends who truly care and reciprocate. I run this meetup to try and help ensure that no one feels alone. I enjoy being able to facilitate what meetup has done for me, for you. Remember though, if this group doesn't work out for you, do not give up! There are so many groups with so many different people! Keep trying! Your happiness and quality of life are worth it! Everyone has their own niche. But I sincerely hope you find what you are looking for here. <3

This is how it works:

- Organizers will be posting events to see if anyone would like to join. (Just remember if you do sign up and cannot make it, please be sure to change your RSVP)

- If you have anything you would like to do, and want to schedule a meet-up/event, please feel free to message me and I will be more than happy to discuss creating your particular event and place you as the organizer. You will be expected to run the meetup in its entirety! So please be sure to be punctual, communicative, and reliable.

- This is NOT a singles group! If you happen to come out and meet someone and after getting to know them they end up being the love of your life then GREAT! I’m absolutely not against dating or anything!! I actually met my husband here! We recently got married Black Friday, 2019. - However, I’m 100% scheduling these events to have a good time, meet new people, and make FRIENDS (emphasis on friends). I do not want that to become the focus of this group. You will be removed from the group if your sole purpose appears to be finding a partner.

- Please do not message members of this group without having connected with them in real life by going to a meetup, or having some sort of shared interest (I'm not talking about messaging organizers for pertinent information). The whole point of meetup is to get out and meet new people IN REAL LIFE!! I want to encourage you to do just this. Messages that make members feel uncomfortable can be grounds for dismissal. This rarely happens, but I just want to at least make this very clear!

Grain Holiday Sweater Brunch! 🎄⛄️

The Grain

I love this place, and their brunch is one of the best! - at least it was a year ago when I went lol https://grainnorfolk.com Wear your fav holiday outfit/colors! It’s the first weekend in December so let’s get it started right! ❣️🥳 Probably hop on over to waterside afterwards! I put it for 8:45 because we will need to be there early to get in line - sometimes this place can be super busy. Depending on the size of the group we will need to split up into smaller tables. There is also a 2 hour limit for tables. For corona they require you to wear your mask at the buffet and they give you gloves to wear while grabbing your food choices.
