Let's experience what the Cleveland area has to offer! There are lots of fun things to do and this group can help facilitate these experiences. If you're new to town or have lived here your whole life, this group can help you connect with fellow Clevelanders while experiencing both its history and current scene.
Unlike many groups who strive to gain memberships, we are interested in working with "only active" members with skin in the game. We promote face to face meetups and require participation to remain in the group. First time members fall off the roster after 60 days and anyone who has not attended an event in 120 days are generally removed. You can always rejoin at any time. This group is for professionals in their 35-50 who want to learn about events going on in Cleveland and the surrounding areas while socializing and networking with others in their age group. It doesn’t matter if you're relationship status is single, dating, or married this group is for all middle aged persons who want to explore the city, meet new people, and do fun things.
Most events will be centered within a 10 + mile radius of downtown including but not limited to Downtown, Tremont, Ohio City, Lakewood, Rocky River, Fariview Park, Gordon Square, Cleveland Heights, University Circle and other areas. we likely do will no accept members whom live further out from the city core as we find they simply do not attend events.
We are glad you have interest in our social group. It is common to be nervous about meeting new people so we find it helpful if each member creates a profile; that way event attendees can know a little about the other members before meeting them.
We strive to protect the integrity of the group. Members are only granted access once an organizer has given them the okay. To join our group we ask that you answer a few simple questions about yourself, post a close up photo of yourself so that we can recognize you at events, and agree to our group policies (found on the Pages tab of the full site).
We try to keep our group roster clean of undesirables. If you feel that your privacy is being violated or feel threatened or uncomfortable from another individual within this group please notify an organizer and we will do everything within our power to remedy the issue. Creeps, stalkers, and harassers should be reported to the leadership team.
We understand many members are single and meeting that someone special indirectly through this site happens all the time. We have no problems with that but our primary purpose is general socialization and participation in events. Many people misunderstand Meetup. We are an activity group not a singles connection. Our particular group is about social activities in Cleveland. Both singles and couples are always welcome. Since we are an age specific group, unlike other meetups which are event focused, we will posting a variety of events for all types of people. Our geographic focus will be in and around Downtown.
The group Organizers are experienced in meetup and put the group first. We will always make a great effort to welcome you and introduce you to other members. Many new members are nervous to jump in and we understand that. We also know, that once you do, a well organized group can provide lots of opportunities on different levels.
Your participation is encouraged. We are member driven so please don't hesitate to email the organizer if you have an idea you would like to share with the group or feel free to post it on the “Discussion” tab.
We understand you are busy but please make sure to check the site so that we can tell that you're still interested. More events are always in the works so stay tuned!
If you've been a part of the group for a while and would like to get more involved, please reach out the Leadership Team. We'd love to have others who are enthusiastic and passionate about our group get more involved as Event Hosts.
Also, be sure to check the site from a computer regularly, it looks a lot different. If you're only using the app, you're going to be missing out on some group/site options!
We hope to meet you soon and welcome you to become part of something special that is happening with great people in and around town!
