What we're about

Whoever said a good man is hard to find obviously never tried to find one single good friend post-college - because THAT is hard to find.

I've hosted Meetups & different groups off and on since 2017. I didn't think it would be possible, but Meetup has gotten even worse in recent years.

Some of y'all need to realize that this isn't the Bachelor. YOU ARE HERE TO MAKE FRIENDS. Stop going to Meetups and ghosting every one. Like you wonder why you still have zero social life. 🤷‍♀️

Anyways, I host these to make real connections, hopefully. & NOT romantic ones. The only reason I'm restarting yet another group (because I'm literally insane and keep expecting different results) is because it's almost 2020 and I could really use more friends.

-You've come to ANY of my other groups. If you've ever met me in real life, then trust me, there's a reason we aren't hanging out currently. 2020 new me, who dis?
-You don't want to put in even 5% effort to make friends. Like, stay home. It's cheaper, and you can do six shots of tequila back to back without being judged.
-Speaking of which, you're going to judge me or anyone else who drinks a bit too much. Like you try hosting ONE Meetup sober and let me know how it goes....
-You're here to make a love connection - that's what Hinge is for.
-You're socially awkward. Like me too, but at least I improve with drinks. If a Vodka Soda can't fix your personality, then nothing can.
-You're never going to actually make it to an event. I'm sorry but this isn't a "Let me boost my self-esteem by having the *option* to be social" group. Maybe try finding an inspirational Facebook group instead 🤷‍♀️

Like IDK what I'm even looking for in a friend anymore, I've had so many fake ones in the last few years. I mean preferably just someone who can meet up for drinks now and then and won't judge me for drunk texting them a meme at 1am. & someone who won't try to date me or flirt with my fiancé. Or someone who won't ditch me at an airport after I have a panic attack on a plane and have to throw up in an overseas bathroom and then say that I'm "the one with the problem". Ya know, simple stuff.

Let's hang out & have fun & maybe for once make one friend as an adult. I realize I probably have a better chance at winning the mega lottery than finding a good friend here, but I'll be damned if I don't at least give it a shot.

Let's Mingle & Talk About Our Failing New Year Resolutions Post-Work Happy Hour

I've decided to add a few new Meetup events for the start of 2020 after receiving a few emails/comments from people who can't make the first event of the year - one person even saying I should reschedule the entire event just for them and another saying I should move it to Skokie? Sorry but I don't do the suburbs and unless you're Vince Vaughn planning to attend my tiny Meetup group, I don't reschedule 💅🏻 That being said, note taken that there should be more events! Let's Meetup in River North and "network" - AKA enjoy happy hour specials at Nacional 27. We can talk about the New Years resolutions we've already failed at and how we've yet to become a better person in the new decade. Yay 🎉 Happy Hour is from 5pm-7pm Tuesday specials include: $5 Sangria, $6 SoCo drinks (whatever that means), & $5 BlueMoon Tallboys

Bowling & drinks & no more fake friends 🍻🎳

Lucky Strike Social at Wrigleyville

One of my FAV things about Meetup.com is how confident all of y'all are. I haven't even had this group one month and I already have people messaging me complaining and telling me: 1. Where I should be hosting events 2. That my description "Is sad" 3. That I should reschedule entire events because they can't make it Like, I'm sorry. I didn't realize 99% of you guys are event planners who know where all the hot spots in the city are and are worthy of having set dates changed for 💁🏼‍♀️ What I'm trying to say is that if you don't like my group that IDFWU or whatever Big Sean said 👋🏻 If you do like my group, then I'm sure we can continue to have a pretty awesome time together. So awesome in fact that we should meetup for drinks + bowling 🎳 Let's hangout at Lucky Strike Wrigleyville & drink & bowl If you plan to bowl, please bring $20 to help split the costs for the bowling lane.
