What do you hope to get from this meetup?

do more fun things-help others meet new friends-get outside my comfort zone and explore all that SW FLorida has to offer plus the rest of florida with new friends- GOAL- not miss out on something fun just because there is NO ONE to go with.

I've been here 10+ years & in ft myers/naples from Cherry Hill NJ. There are so many cool things to enjoy. Been an event planner in my free time for sports ,parties, dinners, & anything you can imagine. Makes me feel good to introduce new friends

What Jersey Joel K. is saying about this Meetup Group

(updated may 2016 see diane's comments this past sunday) re: kayak paddle. she wrote a LONG letter to me thanking us for putting up great events then people make nasty comments AFTER.. makes us hosts want to QUIT and just not try .making new friends is not easy but we are trying to help. its not easy no matter how hard a HOST tries those 1-2 people that are NOT happy at all and always negative THEN someone like diane sends a heartfelt thank you and it makes it all worth it.. YOUR HOSTS that post events need to be THANKED every TIME.. sunday i watched 15 people that barely knew each other become in a few hours good friends... this is YOUR group to post anything you always wanted to go to or try out but had NO ONE to go with you-- just post ... a meetup to me is as little as 2 people meeting for coffee or a drink. go for it ! jersey joel (founder)
