The world needs more people in their 40s and 50s who like to get out, expand their social circles, have a good time, try somewhere new, have interesting conversations, people watch, explore the city, and make new friends.
We are a non-profit group and provide event opportunities at no additional cost. All of our organizers are volunteers, not employees. What are our members about? We are singles, couples, hip, adventurous, and fun. The only cost to you is your own bar tab or event ticket.
You love the urban lifestyle, and would like a 'pack' to explore what Calgary has to offer. Some are in a relationship and looking for a social nightlife and to meet some new people, some are recently divorced or fresh out of a relationship, some chose the fabulous single life and some are still looking for the one. Not everyone is looking for a date or a partner, some of our members are just looking for new friends and adventure.
This group is not going to be exclusively a singles connection, more of a friends meeting friends to do things with. Men and Women are equally invited to join and come to events. Our objective is to gain friendships where we can call upon each other to do things with.
You know, the kids are self-sufficient, the regular friend circle wants to do the same old thing, all your other friends are married and your normal friend circle isn't giving you opportunity to meet 'the one' for you, or you and your partner have watched all the imaginable series' on Netflix and now you want to get out more....(oh wait, that's us), or you're simply new to Calgary. So, this group would be all about enjoying the people of Calgary, making friends, and having new experiences.
It's about bringing people together and having some fun. People who maintain a regular social life live longer.
Focusing mostly in the inner city of Calgary, you'll be invited to theme parties, wing nights, singles mixer events, restaurant nights, cooking classes, movie nights, wine tastings, pub nights, makers nights, wellness, and anything else we can think of. We try pretty hard to find places that most of us wouldn't think of, or know about to go to alone.
Many times our events fill up quickly after they are announced. Those who have their email notification settings turned on are often the ones who respond to these announcements early and are often first to get sign-up spots.
*Note*: Please don't join just for the heck of it! Please have friendship and being an active member in mind. Not everyone can make every event, or attend in group settings, and that's fine, but the object of this group is to get out of the house and make friends, not just being a name on a roster. Most of the events we plan will be centered around the inner city, but as we live south-ish, there may be some happening that direction also....or any direction really.
Code of Conduct
This is a social group and not a forum for marketing/promoting your business. Anyone using meetup events to employ marketing tactics will be given a warning. Second complaints will result in being banned.
This is not an online dating site: do NOT send unsolicited messages to members listed in the group. ANY complaints will result in being banned.
Members should add themselves to event Waitlists if they are interested in the event and available to attend. However, please remember to remove yourself once you find out later that you are no longer able to attend. Also, if you are on a Waitlist, it is your responsibility to check your email notifications to see if you have been added to the event. If you are added to an event from a Waitlist and then change your reservation to a No, you may be removed from the group with no notice. Manage your RSVP responsibly!
Those who No-Show (i.e. sign up for an event, leave themselves on the attendance list, and end up not showing to the event without any attempt to contact the event organizer) will be recorded. Multiple No-Shows will result in any Organizer reviewing the offending member's attendance history, and if warranted, a decision made to cancel the membership of that individual.
Everyone should be treated in a respectful and welcoming fashion. No bullying or harassment, or loud and aggressive behavior will be tolerated. As the majority of events are at restaurants and lounges, this respect extends to wait staff and venue managers.
