What we're about

This group is intended to take the stress out of "socializing" for singles, but still give you lots of easygoing opportunities to connect and socialize. We like to get together, have fun, and yes, dance and party. The whole premise of this group is to facilitate gatherings for singles where you don't feel the pressure to "be single". And yet.... you can still enjoy knowing everyone else is too! ;) Just hang out, be casual, enjoy yourself and have a good time along the way. It's the perfect group to network, meet new friends, or perhaps even that someone special. And of course, to have fun too. which is what it's all about.

Meetups for this group may be anything from Free Saturday at the Museum, Intellectual Discussion groups, bowling, yoga and meditation classes, karaoke...who knows? But also plan on some good old fashioned Happy Hours sprinkled in liberally. The common theme will be safe, enjoyable, easygoing, stress free, and fun events. And unless otherwise specified, dress is always casual. That's because we think comfortable clothes make for comfortable people. So show up, hang out with some great people, and don't feel any pressure to be "on".

In our Group, you will find … a fun mix of nice people who like to join in sharing good conversations, laughter and activities that enhance a friendly, supportive and social atmosphere. The intent is to create fun, safe and social space in various environments where we share activities, meet and have a good time. Many members are natives of Colorado, New to Colorado or are People that find themselves in new life situations. Join us should you want to get out of the house to socialize, have fun, do something good, try something new and develop new friendships!

Let go of any fear you may have about venturing out and attending an event for the first time (many members have been through this already and they will certainly understand how you feel) you will find that the members of the group are a nice mix of people of various backgrounds and ages who just want to live life and enjoy exploring new adventures, meet new people and share good times at great places and events.

Now...let's have some fun!
