This group is for women who have had a hard time coming out of their shell and making new friends. Maybe you are great 1 on 1 with folks or with people your familiar with but tend to freeze up with new people or when in large groups. Maybe all your friends moved away and you have not made any new ones. If any of this is true, you may be in a similar boat as myself. This group is for introverted individuals who are looking to expand their friend circle or gain friends in a low pressure environment.
While I am not new to Baltimore, when I returned, most of my friends had left and I found myself way more introverted and antisocial than I use to be. Especially as I have gotten older. I know I am not alone in this regard. So I hope we can join forces to come out our shell together!
This is for low pressure meetups where we keep meetings small, anywhere from 2-12 people per meetup. Lets try different and creative things to get us social again!
If an event is not listed you are interested in, please do not hesitate to reach out and message me. I am open to any ideas and suggestions anyone has!
GROUP POLICIES: *IMPORTANT: Because group events are intentionally kept small, please only RSVP to events you know you will attend. It is also very important to update your RSVP if you need to cancel. If the event is full, this allows members who may be on the waitlist, a chance to go to the event.
*No Shows: If you are a first time attendee and do a "no show" on a event you have RSVP'd 'yes' to, without any follow up discussion (e.g. message), you will be removed from the group and you will need to register again. If you have attended meetup events in the past, you will be removed after repeated no shows.
**Late Cancellation: Similarly, if you have not attended any meetups and repeatedly update your 'yes' RSVP to 'not going' less than 24 hours prior to the event, you will be removed from the group. Things do happen so please reach out if it is an emergency but please only RSVP if you are committed to attending.
I want to encourage people to only RSVP for events they are committed to attending.
