What we're about

There is nothing better than internationals, expatriates and locals interacting and socialising together. It allows for interesting conversations and very exotic experiences.

There are so many singles groups on here! Most of them seem to want to arrange speed dating and lock and key events which take away from ones natural confidence and creativity. Groups seem to be so large as to be overwhelming! This is the group for those who would like to meet confident, creative, adventurous and well travelled people who are fun and easy to get along with. Join us and in time we will have a fabulous group and great friends.

21 to 50s - Speed friending! No pressure way to make friends! Over 40 expected

Please join us as we help you make new friendships with both ladies and gentlemen without any of the pressure, shyness and nervousness normally associated with meeting new people. This is for ladies and gentlemen between the ages of 21 to 50s. (It is fine if you are a few years either side of these parameters) We have an Afterparty with a DJ and dancing! Click below to book your ticket online today and save money! - Fatsoma - https://fatso.ma/KPGK OR Eventbrite - https://speedannasat.eventbrite.co.uk Kanaloa is the ultimate tiki destination, located in the city of London and open until late. Hawaiian style, while you enjoy one (or many!) of our delicious signature cocktails, there are 26 to choose from! WHY SPEED FRIENDING? In our speed friending, we arrange for you to meet and chat with each other. This gives you an easy and convenient way to meet new people in a way that completely dissolves barriers. This is NOT speed dating and so you will be meeting both ladies and gentlemen in mixed groups. The intent is to create friendships. One of the greatest benefits is that this tears down the walls of shyness. Many people have deep-seated anxiety when it comes to talking to people they don’t know. But when you push outside your comfort zones, this speedy connection opens up the door to allow you to easily communicate and work together with other members of the group. Speed friending allows you to identify other people with common interests. The conversations that take place don’t have to be deep, profound or even scripted; simply discussing likes and dislikes may lead to future friendships. Often, people want to make new friends, but they aren’t quite sure how to go about it. With speed friending, you can start pursuing that goal without appearing socially awkward or desperate. Here’s how it will be set-up: 1) Half of the group (mixed gender) will be in a fixed standing place and the other half of the group (mixed gender) will rotate. During these intervals, each pair of people will get the opportunity to talk to each other. 2) Anna will be hosting the evening and she will organize the speed friending. He will indicate when you should move to the next person. 3) We will meet from 7.00pm onwards. You should get yourself a drink and also any food before 8.00pm. 4) The Speed friending part will start exactly at 8.00 pm onwards and continue till about 9.45pm, so please try and be there on time. If you are late then you can join the speed networking midway. 5) Our function room is booked for Meetup /Anna. We will have a reserved area in the clubhouse for our members. Please be sure to read the events board to know which room is ours on the day. You can also ask the security guard on the ground floor. 6) Please be aware that over 85% of attendees are attending for the first time and over 95% of attendees come alone. You will not be alone. Anna will welcome you and help you get comfortable. Have a look at photos from our recent meetups and see what you have been missing! http://bit.ly/MeetupPictures **We are not a dating group.
