What we're about
WE CREATE MEMORIES by creating some GREAT FRIENDSHIPS! Life is too short not to meet some new people, do something DIFFERENT and have FUN . We are ALL about HAPPINESS & FUN. This group will expose you to so many things you may never even knew existed. The best part is that this group holds interesting things for singles ( not a dating group ) couples,everyone 40 and above, first timers, or those experienced who seek to do it again. We are always in a happy place - We are grounded, soulful and ethical.
Don't worry about coming out alone, that's what most people do... We'll make sure that you have an opportunity to socialize and hopefully go home meeting tons of people and even make a few friends. We're having the time of our lives! We really do some cool stuff with like-minded fun & happy people.
Our goal is to expand your experiences in life & have lots of fun along the way! We should all enjoy the journey and find our groove with a group of positive friendships - that is THRIVE! But to have the journey -- you have to go make it happen. What better way to do that than to have good times and make some great friends? Our goal is for you to experience beautiful and wonderful a-ha's and breakthroughs that will impact your success, happiness, peace, emotional well-being and abundance for you to enjoy. Its ALL about the members & we have some of the BEST well-adjusted members on MeetUp who could be your new BFFs too! We are an easy-going group.
A recent group review: "This group, no matter what we are doing, seems so relaxed and people just enjoy their day. Conversations are excellent, no tension, just good, honest fun. An event you think will only be an hour and a half turns into hours of pure enjoyment. Thrive is great!"
Are we a "singles" group? No, we are not match makers and not a dating site. We have many couples, daters, married people wanting to go to our events and singles too. We'd hate to not see our friends because they are married, or now a couple or dating - bring them - all are welcome to events in our fun group!
We like to do interesting and enriching events and "bucket list" life experiences as well. Things we do: polo, museums, dining (both high and low end), the vineyards, movies, whale watching, Coney Island Mermaid Parade, fishing, walkabouts (Fire Island, east-end, High Line, town/city centers or parks - then dinner), beaches, potlucks, comedy, theater on B'way and Long Island, nature walks such as seeking a 600-year old tree, "geek" events at BNL, local fundraising activities...you name it. We are always open to suggestions! Anything to have some laughs, relax and have good friends around. We try to have a good mix of "moderately vs. low" expense activities as well so we're not always breaking the bank.
While we tend to concentrate on events near the Nassau-Suffolk corridor, we have been known to partake in events from Montauk to NYC. ***Please note that we take RSVPs for dining events very seriously!***
We are an eclectic group of women and men predominantly over 40 and welcome people from all walks of life. If you're looking for some cool things to do with fun people, we are what you're looking for!! We're an easy going, laid back group just wanting to enjoy the best of life, so why not try us on for size!!
We have not asked for membership fees for our first 6 months, but now that we have one organizer and the fact that Meetup charges quite a bit for Organizer fees, we will be asking for a small 6 month membership fee of $2 per month, per member, depending on when you joined in our 6 month cycle which is May 27th to November 27th and then November 27th to May 27th. We appreciate your understanding in this, but with the Meetup fees and all the work to plan lots of fun things, we feel this is a fair request.
To use the site - on the left, use the Calendar to see all that's planned. Then, to see what is new, what people are talking about, etc - go to the HOME tab then look to the right hand column under "What's New" where you'll find recent pictures, RSVPs, comments and chatter! Even a few good jokes from time to time haha.
Note: all writing, photos, content is copyrighted. ALSO - stay safe online! Do not give out personal information if asked by someone you have never met before- its most likely a scammer. We know that MeetUp has "trolls" around who email women with compliments and more, so be careful with the information you provide, and know that there is safety in thisgroup. We remove anyone who has joined just to troll around!
