Welcome to Socially awkward nerdy, dorky, quirky black women ages 25-35 (age is totally flexible)!

If you've ever been told, “you're too black to be nerdy/too nerdy to be black,” or “you don't talk black,” (and the list goes on...) then this is probably the group for you! If not, we still might be the group for you! Perhaps you're an introvert looking to get out and have fun with like-minded folks, or a transplant looking for a chill community in NYC. Our mission is to cultivate real friendships and form a safe place where you can be yourself, have fun, and feel at ease. Let’s squash the stereotype that black women can’t be friends. <br>

We are a small and inclusive community of women, simply out to have some fun, try new things, and just enjoy some chill, judgement-free company. We 'll explore the city and all its surroundings, including museum trips, amusement parks, concerts, hikes, theater, shopping, game night, or any sort of random event that looks interesting to you but you don't have anyone to go with. The sky is the limit; feel free to send in your ideas!

The group will remain limited to 50 members in order to foster an intimate and active community. All new membership requests will be wait-listed and approved in the order that they are received whenever a spot becomes available. We will make every effort to refresh the roster periodically to ensure that members are actively involved, so please be mindful of your RSVPs, attendance, and related communications. Inactive members and chronic no-shows will be removed. Thanks so much for understanding.

Lastly, our group account is funded exclusively by member contributions. We won't ask for dues, but if you're having fun and enjoying our company, please feel free to chip in by clicking the link on our home page. Any amount truly does help!

Thanks, and I hope you'll join us!
