This group focuses primarily on singles ages 25 and above who like to get out and do things while making new friends along the way. This social group likes to get out and DO things... Some of our members are interested in finding someone special, but others just like making new friends and enjoy our active community. We are an established fun group with a lot of experience "starting over." We tend to draw quality people that you would be proud to have as a friend. Because the focus is social and making connections, it's very different from participating in online dating sites or dating services. Some are interested in actively dating, some are not...each person joins us for different reasons. Some of our active single members have become such an integral part of our group, they may choose to continue on some level after a status change. They are great inspiration for what the future may hold for other members. It's tough to leave our friendly and supportive community once you've been a integral part of it for over time. At the same time, our goal is to support the needs of single people by offering a regular schedule of events members can participate in while meeting & mixing. We strive to be the "cheers" of Meetup groups.... a place where you are always welcome and everyone knows your name.
If you register for an event and find that you are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible in advance by changing your RSVP to "No" on this meetup site or contacting the organizer. Ideally we want to try to balance the numbers of men to women at our events so that it will be a comfortable experience for all who attend. It is also important that we give an accurate head count to the venue as well. If you RSVP for events more than two times and do not show up without cancelling, you may be removed from the group.
We do require that you answer a few profile questions in order for you to be a part of this group. Please answer the questions seriously. A real profile picture is required. This is so you can be identified at the events. No Lurkers allowed! In addition to a real and recent picture, we ask that you use your real name. First name only is fine. Meetup is about meeting people and people have names, not handles. This is a social group not a message board. While we appreciate the desire for privacy if you want to remain anonymous, this group (and really Meetup period) is not the place to do that.
We look forward to meeting you at an upcoming event!
