What we're about
Calling all couples with time on their hands and the resources to have fun. If your friends are stuck in a rut and don't want to have fun anymore then this is the group for you. Our primary purpose is for kindling a new friendship between like-minded/fun-minded couples and the activities they enjoy. We like to think Outside the Box for fun activities but we are NOT singles dating club or alternative lifestyles group... no funky stuff here.
Join us If:
You're old enough to know better but still don't want to act your age.
You're a kids-free couple (married or not) between 30-60-ish and want to expand your social network
You have kids but they do not dominate your life (empty nesters, shared custody...able to get out)
You live an active lifestyle and "seize the day!”
Let's get together for a fun festival with live music or gather at a local upscale restaurant for an evening out on the town. Other activities can include movies at recliner theaters, wine tasting, backyard BBQs, pool parties, target shooting, ATV adventures & travel.
After we get to know each other, we can have themed dinner parties rotating monthly at houses around the valley. One idea is a Build Your Own Kabob Party, SuperBowl, Cinco d' Mayo. This type of gathering would be for members that have already attended a couple of events and already know the hosts. Please feel free to RSVP after you're able to attend public COTB events.
When you attend a meeting don't forget to bring your business card to pass on to other new friends where you find you have mutual interests. That way you won't have to wait for another Outside the Box meeting to get together. After you get to know other members you can also use private message to keep in touch.
We are open to suggestions for fun activities and don’t want the group voice to be dominated by a few. This is a collaborative effort and personal politics or cliques are not what we are about. So, share your ideas for meetups and Couples Outside the Box will do our best to make it happen.
Our simple membership guidelines are that you:
Remain an active participant in the group (attend at least one event per quarter)
Have an up to date face picture of you and/or your spouse
Have answered the member questions on your profile
Write a short introduction for you and your spouse
