What we're about
Welcome to ESV Social, now the #1 most active group in Canada! Do you want more excitement in your life? Are you looking to make new friends and do fun stuff? Join us! Check out this promo video we made for our group a few years back:
The great thing about this group, and the reason for our success, is we encourage our members to actively plan events! Members who have attended at least 1 event are welcome to post an event of their own as long as it doesn't conflict with any of our group policies which can be found here: policy page (http://www.meetup.com/Extremely-Shy-Looking-for-friends/pages/Group_Policies/). Just contact Ian or another group organizer to get set up with event hosting access. Businesses who would like to share their events with our members are also welcome to contact us for sponsorship opportunities.
Please also note that writing people on meetup whom you haven't met is against our policies. Meetup is for meeting people in person at events. Anyone found sending unsolicited messages will be removed from the group. Please inform Ian immediately if somebody you haven't met has sent you as message or if you have received a message that makes you uncomfortable. We would like to do everything in our power to make meetup a fun and safe space for everybody.
What about our group name? The first thing that comes to many people's minds when they see "Extremely Shy- Looking for Friends" is: Do I have to be extremely shy to join this group? NO: People of all levels of extroversion and introversion can be found in our group. Many of our members are not shy, and many more have largely overcome their shyness since joining our group. That being said, I know what it's like to be very shy and i know that signing up for your first meetup event can be scary and intimidating. Part of what this group is about is making that first step as easy for you as possible. Shyness is not something that anyone here will judge you poorly for. And if there's anything we can do to make it easier for you to attend your first event then please let me know by sending Ian a message.
Thanks for joining. See you soon!
