What we're about
Shy? Awkward? Being pestered to go out and meet new people?
What we are: This is a local introverts social group. We're a private group of people who consider themselves introverted or shy and are looking for other people to hang out with without feeling judged for being too quiet. Quiet is fine. Awkward is cool.
What we are not: we are NOT a support group. Whilst there are many excellent social anxiety etc. support groups out there, this isn't one of them. We aren't interested in what label you may or may not have but we do require you to be able to make events under your own steam and take responsibility for yourself during events. If you require additional support to do the above, this may not be the right group for you right now.
Group aims: The aim of this group is to create regular meetings and outings to different places that people can dip in and out of as they feel up for it. There are no expectations and no pressure to talk or interact more than you are comfortable with (nervous talkers also welcome :)).
Events are chosen and run by myself and other group members; these are things we're happy to go to on our own so whilst company is awesome, please don't feel any pressure to attend if you change your mind or aren't up for it. We're expecting groups to be small and will cap them at fairly low numbers.
Am I shy enough? You don't need an official label. There isn't a threshold of shyness that you have to pass to join. All ages, genders and nationalities are welcome. However we do ask that you be respectful and considerate of other members. Whilst we endeavor to be as understanding as possible, behavior that makes other members uncomfortable will not be tolerated and members are required to abide by a code of conduct (listed under Pages).
If anyone has any ideas for future events or wants to run one themselves, please get in touch :)
