What we're about

We are a fun group of adults, and some have a wicked sense of humor. Our discussions range from lighthearted fun to serious topics. We won't likely change the world, hence the name Pointless Pontificators, but we will take care of our little corner of it. We have a sociable & relaxed atmosphere so everyone feels comfortable. We want everyone to share their thoughts, participate, have an enjoyable time and likely make new friends.

We have about 75 events a year, including discussions, happy hour meets, dinners out, movies, parties, lakeside cookouts, dances, game nights, etc. We welcome new members to join us. There are dues to cover our fee to Meetup, and help pay for our social events. Dues are $10 for 6 months, $5 for 2 months, or $1 for each attended event, whichever is best for you. This way we all contribute our fair share to participate and support the group.

We have been meeting since spring, 2015. We have expanded, made more friends and enlarged our social events. The members, and guests that they have brought, have told us that our events are more enjoyable than other groups, and we are proud of that! If you wish to be a member, you will need to post a picture that looks like you.

If you have any questions or comments, please send me a message. We hope to see you soon!

Relationships: Setting Boundaries - 4/22

Panera Bread

In a world where we interact with many people, we often get asked to do things. How often do you want to say "no" but say "yes"? Or when people say something offensive and you want to say you don't like it, but you stay silent? Or someone tells you how to run your life, and you don't say anything and just roll your eyes? These are all issues of BOUNDARIES. Let's share our experiences in situations requiring boundaries and dealing with other people. There are ways to set boundaries without alienating your friend or loved one, that are kind and thoughtful. You teach people how to treat you from the moment we meet them. Healthy boundaries increase respect others show to you and enhances your own self respect. It's whether you love yourself more than you fear disappointing them. ----------------------------------------------------- Fee: $1 unless you are a paid up member or new member with 1-2 visits.
