What we're about

Description:

This group is oriented around professionals that despite trying, have been unsuccessful in finding their ideal match. We are looking to disrupt the matchmaking, online dating, "its just lunch", "Events and Adventures", and other dating services by providing similar services nearly free (some events may have a small fee, and we have to pay meetup). Many people work for small companies, for themselves, or for whatever reason find it difficult to meet the right people in the right setting.

Our focus is to provide a variety of social opportunities for singles that are truly single, confident, and determined to find a long term compatible relationship. While we are a social group, we are focused on available singles only. Events are generally focused on smaller intimate settings and most events have an attendance cap, if Scottsdale clubs appeal to you, we may not be a good fit. Events may include happy hour, game night, bowling, billiards tournament, back-yard games, poker, sporting events, as well as larger trips like cruises, grand canyon, wine tours etc. Some events may be for a specific age range to increase comfort between members.

Members are asked to truly evaluate if they are emotionally, physically, and mentally available to take their membership seriously and actively seek a partner, we ask members to put their profile on hold if this is not you. This is up to each individual member to determine what point that is. If you do meet somebody in the group we ask that after 30 days of dating you no longer attend our singles events as you would no longer meet the first statement in this paragraph. However, we feel that organizers are an important and intricate part of our success. Therefore, organizers to play as an exception and if they choose to continue to host events we support that and their option to share their story with new and progressing members.

While all are free to join we are focused on straight, monogamous, singles with serious intent to date and find the love of their life. We are very concerned for the comfort and well being of our members and strive to ensure that all inappropriate behavior be dealt with swiftly. We ask all members to agree to our "Group Rules" (see below) and to uphold personal integrity to the highest degree. Many events will have alcohol available, all members are expected to be responsible adults and to limit their consumption to an in-control level. We highly encourage all members to utilize their meetup member page as a detailed description of you, like an online dating profile, additionally, members are encouraged to change messaging settings so you can not be contacted through Meetup.
