Are you an introvert looking for opportunities to socialize in small groups? Have you become frustrated with the current state of your network of friends? Are you new to the D.C.-area and looking to build your social network? Or, maybe you're just frustrated that most Meetup group events seem to attract either two people or 50 people.
This group is for anyone who prefers to meet people and make friends in a small group setting. Most events for this group will be limited to five to 10 people. I envision this group as tight-knit community in which people feel comfortable being themselves and supported when trying something new. This group is not for people who think they might attend an event once or twice if they have time.
So, what will we do? Just about anything is on the table: happy hours (at quiet, not-too-crowded bars), hikes, beach trips, sporting events, Cards Against Humanity nights, museum visits, scavenger hunts and anything else you can think of that can be done in a small group.
We are always looking for additional event organizers. Please reach out if you're interested in becoming an organizer.
Please review the following guidelines before joining the group:
By joining this group you acknowledge and agree that:
1. You’re attending group meetups at your own risk, and you are solely responsible for understanding your abilities and limitations and for taking proper safety precautions.
2. You will only RSVP if you plan on attending the meetup. If you are unable to make a meetup, please cancel your RSVP at least 24 hours in advance, as a courtesy to the organizers and your fellow group members. Anyone who cancels less than 24 hours in advance or fails to attend when RSVP’d without contacting an organizer will be counted as a no-show. Anyone who no-shows three times is at risk of being removed from the group. (Please note that certain events may require a longer advanced commitment. This will be noted in the description for the event.)
3. You will treat waitlists the same as RSVPs. Because this is a group for small-group activities, the RSVPs are usually limited, which means they often fill-up. When you add yourself to the waitlist, what you are saying is: “I’m leaving my schedule open in case a spot opens up.” When an RSVP is cancelled, Meetup automatically RSVPs the first person on the waitlist. It is your responsibility to keep track of your waitlist/RSVP status.
