Our meetup group is comprised of mostly singles 40 & Over near Dulles / Sterling / Ashburn / Leesburg. This group is open to all mature persons in their 40's and over who want to widen their social circles and meet other singles in a group setting.
Suggestions for New Members:
• New Members attending for the first-time should arrive promptly at the event start time to facilitate easier introductions (once the event has started we may not have time to help make introductions and unless you are type A personality it can be harder to insert yourself into conversations.)
• New Members should refrain from attending events that require the organizers to make reservations (Monthly Brunches, Grilled Cheese Wednesdays, Dinners for Eight, etc.) until they have met one or more of the organizers at a Monthly Happy Hour or other general event open to unlimited numbers.
Are you at least 40 years old and looking for a co-ed meetup group or seeking a social meetup that acts more like adults than some of the other popular groups? Are you BOLD enough to get out from behind your computer keyboard to meet people in person at various events? We will only approve members that we feel are local to our area and truly just want to widen their social circles and interact with other local adults.
Are you Bored with On-Line Dating? Frustrated losing precious moments of your life on time wasting apps? Are you just feeling kind of tired reading profiles on Plenty of Fish, Match, OKCupid, Bumble, eHarmony, and the like? Taking a break from dating altogether? Wouldn't it be great to just get together with others face-to face on a weeknight in a relaxed bar, microbrewery, or wine bar? Do you feel you could stand to just have a nice outing with adult conversation and no pressure?
BOLD has nothing to do with online dating and is really about peer to peer socializing; even if you are married or dating, you can apply for membership. As a group, we will always try to host one happy hour each month on the first Tuesday or Wednesday. The goal is to grow this group to be the premier social happy hour group for adults in Loudoun County and the surrounding area. In the last year we have grown from 500 to 1100+ members.
To become a BOLD member, you must live or work in Loudoun County communities such as Sterling, Ashburn, Brambleton or Leesburg and areas close by like Purcellville, Hamilton, Chantilly, Herndon, Reston and Dulles. Memberships are approved by the Leadership Team with approvals based on a steady balance in the demographics and geography of the group and based on your answers to questions asked during sign-up. For example, if you do not live in the immediate area, please compel us to approve you membership by stating clearly why you feel you desire membership in our group and what brings you to the Dulles Corridor on a regular basis.
Please be within the age range described above, fill out the questionnaire and provide a clear and recent photo of yourself so we can recognize you at events. Profiles without self-photos, or with sunglasses, or that are not completely filled out will not be considered for membership. Answers to application questions are used as a basis for determining membership approval.
If you have an event suggestion that will enrich lives in ways other than happy hour, please don't hesitate to speak up. We will gladly entertain any ideas, but we don't want to re-invent the wheel either. For example, if you want routine bicycling events, we can suggest some other meetups for that if you cant find them on your own.
