Are you introverted? New in town? Experiencing the Seattle freeze in all it's glory? Need some more, or just new girlfriends? Maybe you just finished recharging your social battery and want some social time now? Then this is the women's social group for you!!!
The goal of this group is to form new connections, friendships, hobbies...Whatever!!! People assume introverts aren't social, but we just deal with social energy in a different way, preferably in smaller groups, and with meaningful conversations. We'll meet once or twice monthly (not including any spontaneous pop-ups). Hopefully we'll even have a day trip to nearby Canada or Oregon! Some events will have a smaller number of attendees, while other events will allow larger groups. Events will include but not be limited to movies, food (in all it's glorious forms and times), hikes, museums, wine tastings, festivals, etc...of course keeping within group limit
If there is an activity you would like to do please let me know and I can make it an event even if I am unable to host it...you never know who wants to do the same thing.
Also, I encourage members to use the discussion boards to introduce yourselves or throw out spontaneous outings! I've seen it work wonderfully in other groups and hope we all can use it as a resource to connect with other members.
Some General Guidelines:
- You must have a picture of yourself uploaded to your profile for safety and transparency...it's super cool when you can recognize complete strangers in public settings. - It's cool if you want to join, and scope things out before you inevitably join us ...because you will inevitably join us...not meant as a threat. - Please no soliciting members, unless it happens naturally (I guess). Kind of takes the fun out of attending if you feel like people are trying to sell you things. - This isn't a movie...nor high school...mean girls/ladies/women/peoples can form their own hive elsewhere
No Show Policy:
- A NO SHOW is someone who RSVPs for an event and does not show up, AND also does not change their RSVP to NO. - Three(3) NO-SHOWs in a six(6) month period will result in you not being able to RSVP for up to 2 future events. Two (2) NO-SHOWs in the next two(2) month period will result in your removal from the group - I understand completely that sometimes we say we wanna go somewhere and then we change our minds at the last minute...that is completely fine...just CHANGE YOUR RSVP TO NO
Rationale for NO-SHOW policy: There are lots of people who are excited to meet people and if one or multiple people no-show or change their RSVPs at the last minute, you are taking away someone else's opportunity to meet new people, try a new restaurant, or participate in a new activity.
