This group is for introverts, or the loners types ;especially those who are transplants to the area and are having trouble meeting new people. Introverted doesn't mean shy;anti social; or that you have social anxiety even tho; those types will fit right in with us . (if you do suffer from anxiety and need treatment this is not the group you need. If you have anxiety and would like treatment check out our sister groups Tampabay Anxiety Association or Orlando Hugs group. ) That being said I'm not interested in planning some introverted version of an adventure club or some such thing. We do introverted things like biking kayaking but if members want to do a concert those types of events are on the table too. Just because we are introverts doesn't mean we don't like to socialize. We just don't need to do it as often.
The media always portray us introverts in a negative light. If you are an introvert then you know this all too well. I'm hoping to create foundation where we introverted types can build a network of like minded introverted friends in the TampaBay and Orlando area without having to join a "get together and do something" cluby, or god forbid attend a TampaBay Area singles' mixer.
I also expect members to be pro active and host neighborhood meetups on their own. If you live in say Clearwater and there is a spot you like in your area. Then those members in that area can meet there with out the need for the organizer getting involved . That way you will not be traveling 50 miles for a meetup. You still can attend any other meetups but you will have to be willing to travel.
Also join us on Facebook where we have daily online chats. Eventually we will be leaving meetup.com because F.b. is more suited for introverts.
