If you choose to join you are required to fill out an 'About Me' form, consisting of a few simple questions. Additionally, you must post a *RECOGNIZABLE* picture of only yourself, (without sunglasses please!). Babies, pets, cars, boats, sunsets, & others in the picture will not work as a picture of you. This is the #1 reason a person requesting to join is not approved.
Cape Fear Singles (CFS) offers singles of all ages a fun, comfortable and safe environment in which to meet and make new friends. We started our 16th year in 2020 and are one of the largest and oldest *active* MeetUp groups in Wilmington, N.C. We have hosted over 5,000 Events in our 16 years.
We are 'Events' driven. We look for interesting activities to share with friends. We are not a dating site although a few of our members have found someone to date within our group. This is not prohibited but it is not the reason we exist. Please do not join if you mistakenly think this is a dating site.
We are always looking for interesting & fun Events to attend. Some are public Events that we attend; some are our own private Events. You must join CFS to see our: Upcoming Events (Calendar), Discussions, & Photos tabs, located on our Home Page. Our Calendar lists all planned Events for the current month. Events are added frequently so check often!
There is no cost to join; you will have 30 days to decide if you want to pay the $12 annual dues to help cover the cost for our web-site & some of the Events we host. If you go past the 30 days (the trial membership) you will be dropped from our membership. Our #'s reflect active members unlike many other MeetUp groups that list 1000's of members.
There are only -5- rules f/our group:
#1) This is not a commercial site. No business may join. You may not promote your business, solicit our members, or try to sell any product. However, members may use the Discussion Board to sell (for example) your own personal car, look f/a room-mate, sell a bike, etc. This may not be an on-going sale.
#2) No member may harass, bother or annoy (to extreme) any other member.
#3) You are responsible f/your RSVP to our Events. We have grown so large that we have to limit the attendance f/some Events, so if you RSVP 'yes', you may be shutting out another member who would like to attend. You need to update your RSVP if your plans change. We have an automatic 'Wait-List' f/a # of our Events. Warning: If you ignore this courtesy f/your fellow CFS members you may forfeit your membership.
#4) No bad language is allowed, @ our Events or in written form (e.g.> on our Discussion Board) See rule # 5 f/more information.
#5) If you act badly, you reflect on our entire membership. That will not be tolerated since we enjoy a great reputation in this town. Therefore, every member gets -ONE- warning if they break any of these rules. If you don't straighten up & fly right, you will be expelled. No second chance & no appeal process.
Note: We want members who participate; why else would you join? We would like to see you/meet you but to keep your membership active you should sign in within 3 months of your last sign in. To keep our membership #'s accurate (something many MeetUps in town Do Not Do!), we delete members who do not sign in occasionally.
