Hello lovely people and welcome to the Birmingham Singles Meetup Group!
We are a group of friendly, fun, sociable singles from Birmingham and the surrounding areas, who get up to all sorts of interesting things.
The group is recently under New Management - thank you to Johnny for being an amazing, hardworking and talented organiser for all those years!
Hi, I'm Alison, I'm your new organiser, and hope to meet lots of you soon!
The group is for...
Single people of any age, gender or orientation, living in Birmingham and the surrounding areas, who would like to make new friends, go to new places and generally have an awesome time with a friendly, fun group.
Rules and guidelines
The group is for everyone, we are all here for the same reasons - to make friends, have fun, be sociable.
There are only a few rules, but they are very important... I hope you're listening!
1 - treat everyone with respect, courtesy, honesty, trust and care
2- remember, we're all different, and all looking for different things, please respect others views, lifestyles and choices
3- please have a profile picture which clearly shows your face, and give your real name when you join. We're all here to meet and make genuine friends, so what's the point of being anonymous?
4 - if you want to bring a non-member to an event, why not ask them to join first? It doesn't take long, and its free! Of course, if for some strange reason they don't want to share in the wonder that is The Birmingham Singles by all means bring them along to an event to try us out, but remember, you're responsible for them following our simple but important rules!
5 - if you're not happy about anyone's behaviour, either at an event, in a private message or on the boards, please do let me know as soon as possible - any behaviour which makes members uncomfortable or feel unsafe will not be tolerated, neither will prejudice or discrimination of any kind
Putting on an event
This is your group - if you have an idea of something you'd like to do, and you think others would be interested, then you are more than welcome to organise your own event!
If you're already an event organiser, then please go ahead and post your event to the group.
If you're not an organiser yet, but think you'd like to try it, send me a message or grab me at an event. If you don't want to do it alone, find a buddy to co-host.
There are a few basic rules if you want to host an event...
Book the venue if needed, make sure they are expecting 100s of gorgeous singles descending on them...
Turn up, on time, and stay until the end!
Decide how you'll make yourself known to your guests - a sign, poster, banner or whatever is appropriate
Be friendly, introduce yourself to everyone, and make sure everyone feels included and involved
Have fun, smile, enjoy it, ask for help, involve everyone... thats about it!
Hope to see you all soon at one of our lovely events!
