What we're about
If don't have any good friends in the Bay Area and you frequently feel isolated and lonely because of that, then we're here for you.
We want you to join our Tribe.
We want to meet you, get to know you, and spend time with you. We want to add joy to each others' lives, support each other in times of need, and share quality time while we build connection.
Our focus is NOT on specific activities. Our focus is on the people we're spending time with and becoming friends with, regardless of what activity we're sharing at the moment.
Is this group right for you? Here's some help figuring out:
- If you prefer "people your own age", then this group is NOT for you. We're a Tribe, and a Tribe is like an extended family, with members of various ages, all contributing to our group identity
- If you already have good friends in the Bay Area, then this group is NOT for you. We're here to support the friend-less, to provide belonging and companionship and support
- If you feel it's too inconvenient to travel a while to meet up with your Tribe-mates (just as examples - from SF to Oakland, or from Berkeley to Hayward, or from Oakland to Pleasanton) then you're NOT lonely enough for this group, and we're NOT for you
- If you're looking to network with specific "types" of people, then this group is NOT for you. We're not a hook-up group, nor only for hipsters, nor only for start-up hopefuls, nor only for seniors, nor only for millennials ... nor for any other homogeneous group. Our Tribe values diversity of age, race, life stage, etc.
It takes time to turn strangers into casual friends, and casual friends into good friends and comrades. But the journey itself can be very enjoyable!
Loneliness and isolation can happen for lots of reasons, but more importantly, it's very bad for your mental AND physical health. Here's your chance to do something about it!
