This meet-up is for singles 30's- to 59's ( little older is o.k.) that are wanting to meet others safely in a community environment.
Events will be schedule all over Tampa Bay, and we would like all to come meet others, make friends, as organizers we realize that many singles are sometimes sitting home, or out and about but don't know if the people they are meeting are actually single.
We are hoping this venue will allow you to come out and feel safe to meet other singles of all age groups. Make friends when nothing is going on, you can call and go safely to explore other things in TampaBay.
To make that happen we have to have active members who really want to get out and meet others. With that in mind there rules that this group has because we want to you to come out for fun, meet friends, please respect all organizers who volunteer their time.
The best way to meet other singles close to you is to volunteer to be a host and schedule an event close where you like to hang out. We encourage all that are serious about meeting others to request the opportunity to become an event host, and submit your suggestions that you want to invite others to do with you.
All can submit activity ideas to the organizer of things you would like to do, and assistant organizers are welcome. There is so much to do here. You can come out and meet people, find friends close by that want to get out and do things. We have members in Wesley Chapel, New Tampa and Lutz, St. Pete, Bradenton & Sarasota, Downtown Tampa, Brandon. What you need to do, if you are serious about meeting others close is let me know what you think is a good place to have dinner, dancing, event, hiking, biking, whatever is close to you. Because just joining doesn't help you meet singles near you, but being a leader in your life to make things happen to meet other singles near where you live could change your life.
We would like to be doing a monthly meet & greet events for all the current members to help meet the new members.
We will also have exercise events, such as biking, walking, beach walks, kayaking, kickball. We will have various dining out events, and we will have various happy hour events around the area. Since we are surrounded by water and sunshine, we will have many events out and about.
Most events will be free or small cost events, with that mentioned, any event that includes a cost. All members are expected to pay for their own food, entrance fees, that may be charged by the venue of the event.
Just so you know here are the rules.
1. You must live in the Tampa Bay area to be a member. That includes Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Manatee, Sarasota, Polk and other counties. That does not include living in another country.
2. Anyone without a facial picuture. Pictures that show your dog, landscape without you will not be accepted.
3. Dues are expected to be paid as broken down before $12/year is $1 a month. Dues pay for continuing this site to continue to operate so that you can have events, no we don't make money on meetup.
4. Events - If you say yes to an event and over schedule yourself for many events, it is your responsibility to let the host know not to look for you, or hold up everyone else in the group for you, if you made a deposit on that event you have lost that, no refund. No shows are looked down on, do not take anyone else's space especially if there is a cap on attendance.
5 A certain amount of no shows is looked down on, since your host put away time to greet you and schedule around you, so if you don't update your host to not look for you by text and multiple access opportunites, you will loose your access to the group and will have to re-apply.
6 Members with this group will be ask to schedule at least one event throughout the year. So think about event you would like to schedule. The point being as singles in TampaBay, all singles live everywhere somewhere different, and by scheduling events all over Tampabay it gives everyone opportunity to schedule events to meet more and more people.
