Celebrate Singles Mingles Anniversary - drinks/food/games/prizes/fun
Another year has passed quickly, and we have an ever growing group of members keeping Singles Mingles of Central Ohio (SMOCO) vibrant and active. This year we get to celebrate over 150 meetups completed since our last anniversary. Hundreds of our members actively search our Meetup and Facebook pages each month, seeking out exciting and diverse activities to share and attend with one another. Concerts, classic movies, hikes, neighborhood walking tours, the Columbus Clippers, home hospitality, great new restaurants and brew pubs, Buckeye game watches and yes, The Reaganomics, among others, have all made it to our social calendars in the last year. And you get to decide what we'll do in the coming year. Come on out and grab a drink, mingle, munch, reconnect, bust a move, and celebrate being a part of one of the most active social singles groups in Central Ohio. The hosts will provide appetizers, and we'll have some games and prizes. It's a fun venue! We'll have a small area of tables where we can mix and mingle. How to stay in touch with the organizers on the day of the event: If you must contact the hosts on the day of the event, if you want to give a heads up that you'll be late, you're having trouble finding us, etc, please TEXT ONLY to[masked] and identify yourself in your text. THIS NUMBER IS FOR TEXTING ONLY ON THE DAY OF THE MEETUP. Once the event begins, it becomes more difficult for the hosts to respond to your text messages, as we are also enjoying the event. The venues where we hold our events count on us to be good patrons. Support your wait staff with generous tips and they'll be glad to have us back again. When you RSVP to attend an event, we plan for you in our numbers, and we look forward to seeing you. Be true to your intentions to join us. If you must change your plans, do so with plenty of advance notice. If you would like to join us without an RSVP, contact the host. WingMinglers: Always welcome at our events. Bring them along to introduce them to our group. And if you are a new hesitant member, bring them along to give you the courage to finally join us. You won’t need them after you meet us for the first time.

What we're about

Ready for fun and friendship? Join one of Central Ohio's most exclusive singles social groups to meet real people, make new friends and experience all that the Columbus area has to offer. This group is intended for the active, single person to get out into social settings that they prefer to do with other like minded singles. The focus of the group is to have a mix of everything; outdoor activities, dining out, wine tastings, happy hours, art exhibits, movies, festivals, night life, social gatherings and whatever else we can come up with!

1. We are not a dating group or service; we are a singles social group. We are not open to everyone. Our members pay a membership fee to join, and in return they can relax and feel that the organizers are taking extra steps for their safety and comfort.

2. You must have a head shot photo featuring only you, so we can identify you when you come to an event.

3. We vary the location of our events throughout Central Ohio.

4. Please, no solicitation of you or your business.

5. If you RSVP "Yes" to an event, please honor that commitment or change your RSVP to "No" within a reasonable amount of time if you find out you can't attend. This is just respectful to the group and event location. "No Shows" are no bueno.

We welcome all ages but most of our members range from the mid 30's to mid 60's.

Our events are known as “Mix & Mingles” because we encourage everyone to be on their feet and engaging in conversations with other members.

One-time lifetime membership fee of $20 is due at the time of membership application. For brief instructions click here: http://www.meetup.com/SinglesMingles/pages/How_to_pay_the_One-time_Lifetime_Membership_fee/ Approval cannot be granted for incomplete or nonsense responses, one word answers, or without a clear photo of the member-applicant.

Now, join us and start a new approach to making friends and perhaps finding a soul-mate in an organic way; something which online dating sites simply cannot do for you!
