What we're about

Welcome Girlfriends of Chicago!

We are a fun women's group that is interested in having a good time, meeting new people, and creating new friendships. Our members are mostly in the 20s - 30s and our goal is to have weekly events, from small social outings like brunch, picnics, shows and plays, to bigger events such as happy hours, rooftop parties, and other fun theme parties.

Meet Girlfriends Chicago is perfect for women who are new to the city or even long-time Chicagoans who just like to meet other friendly, fun girls. Our goal is to make everyone comfortable, whether in a small or large group environment. We promise to only create events that work for you. That means we will not just go to awesome venues but also do unique type of events that you'll only find here. In addition, every single event will have a super host, so you will never be alone. :)

Join us and RSVP to make long life-time lasting friendships while having an amazing time!

Girlfriend events are hosted by MeetPeopleChicago.com (http://www.meetpeoplechicago.com/). Welcome to the Phenomenon (https://www.meetpeoplechicago.com/blog/26-creating-a-phenomenon).

Message from our founder

"Peter - I want to say thank you. All my good friends and the love of my life, I have met through your events. Now I have a beautiful baby and it's all because of you!" - Jill

"Before I found out about your events, I stayed home and was a loner. Now I find myself being a social butterfly. My confidence level has never been higher. I've met so many friends and wonderful people. Thank you for what you have done!" - Sarah

The two above comments were made by our members. These are just two out of hundreds I have gotten over the last several years. It's hard to explain to people over a web page on why we're different and why I started this group in the first place. And to be honest, it's almost impossible to explain. I see so many comments on Meetup about how to meet people, on doing a "pre-meetup" before a meetup, on how to even show up at an event. It's because these people have never been to my events. And they think, accurately for the most part, that it's not just hard to meet people, but scary too. Who wouldn't be? But our meetups are not like any others. We're genuine, authentic and real. All our members are no different than other meetups that are disappointing but what makes us different is in our culture. We are an inclusive, friendly and social group. Why and how? Because we created this culture since our first meetup 4 years ago. And since then thousands have been to our events, thousands more have connected, hundreds have met their best friends and even over a dozen have gotten married. Yup, all this because of a passion to connect others. Read my two blogs and you will understand why I did all this: How It All Started (https://www.meetpeoplechicago.com/blog/62-meet-people-chicago-how-it-all-started) and Creating a Phenomenon (https://www.meetpeoplechicago.com/blog/26-creating-a-phenomenon).

Now, creating all these events hundreds of them a year so we can connect thousands of Chicagoans take much effort and time. That's why for the most part we charge a small fee, usually $10 for our events for our hosting and organizing services as well as event expenses. Or if you want to save money, subscribe for just $9.99 a month (https://www.meetpeoplechicago.com/join) and go to our events at no extra charge. We hope you understand for a small amount we are able to change lives for the better.

So, don't worry about meeting people here. I guarantee you that you will have a good time and that you will meet interesting people. If you are still nervous (and it's okay) just direct message me and I will try my best to answer your questions.

-Peter Shen, Founder of Meet People Chicago (https://www.meetpeoplechicago.com/)
