What we're about
This group is about thoughtful, interesting, quiet people getting together for conversation, holiday dinners and volunteer work. Join other introverts for low-pressure meetups where nobody asks, "Why are you so quiet?"
What is an introvert? "Given the choice, you’ll devote your social energy to a small group of people you care about most, preferring a glass of wine with a close friend to a party full of strangers. You think before you speak, have a more deliberate approach to risk, and enjoy solitude. You feel energized when focusing deeply on a subject or activity that really interests you. When you’re in overly stimulating environments (too loud, too crowded, etc.) you tend to feel overwhelmed. You seek out environments of peace, sanctuary, and beauty; you have an active inner life and are at your best when you tap into its riches." Source: www.quietrev.com.
What introversion is not: Shyness, having few friends, social awkwardness, timidity, or problem to be cured.
Rules: Avoid politics and be courteous. What does that mean? First, members who RSVP yes are expected to show up or change their RSVP with at least 24 hours' notice. Members who violate this rule repeatedly will be removed; first-timers who violate it will be removed immediately. At meetups like dinners where everyone needs to be there when it starts, members need to be on time; I don't check messages and we don't wait on latecomers. Second, meetups are supposed to be enjoyable. Members who repeatedly monopolize the conversation, insert politics into discussions, or otherwise make meetups difficult to run or enjoy will be removed.
