You've just found a social ship of singletons, sailing the same waters!!!
Our main ethos is to provide non-threatening, non-hunting opportunities for currently unattached folk to enjoy cool company and laughter. We generally get together for drinks, meals at pubs, restaurants and cafes, picnics or park atmospheres, pot luck lunches and dinners, movies, live music, dancing, etc, etc. We're developing all the time.
We're mostly based in and around (primarily but not exclusively) Papamoa, The Mount, Te Puke, and Tauranga. If you're a bit further afield, you're still welcome but be aware that most of our happenings are in those areas.
Mostly aged 40+, regular members tend to have a young-at-heart, humorous approach. We're more than happy to have you along if you're younger though. It takes a few to get the ball rolling so why not add yourself for a younger chronological bunch?
Everyone's at different stages. Maybe you're fresh out of a relationship, perhaps with barriers up. Or comfy in your own skin and don't see singledom as some kind of stigma. Or open and ready for romance but chilled about it. Or most of your current friends are coupled and it's tricky to find people to go out with. Wherever you're at, you're sure to have some fun with us.
Please be absolutely clear that we're not a dating site or group so 'hunting' type behaviour is not tolerated. Sparks may well be ignited through the natural process of chilling and building confidence and friendships though so who knows? We'd be happy for you!
If you're a member of more than 10 groups, you're unlikely to be able to manage to come along or be committed to building friendships with us. We're trying to grow a bit of a community here.
Finally, you have a main profile for your overall membership of the Meetup platform and separate ones for each group you join under that. When requesting to join our group, you'll need to have a clear head and shoulders pic visible as your profile photo for this group. Your request to join won't be approved without one. Non-members of this group cannot see who members of the group are.
We'd love you to join us for friendship and fun ... soon!
