What we're about
Welcome to the Adelaide Socialites group!
A majority of us are between 20-40 (with a few ring ins younger and older hehe)
This group was made with a focus on activities that you and members of the group will enjoy. If you've got an idea for an event, please contact me - I would like to help you.
Making friends as a child is easy. Generally, the only thing needed is for two or more children to be in the same space for over five minutes and friendship ensues.
This skill, however, seems to shrink more and more with age. Add to this diminishing social skill, the fact that we have jobs and children and responsibilities, and that sometimes we move cities, states and even countries, and it’s easy to see why we seem to have fewer friends as we age.
So given that we can’t just head down to the nearest sandpit and strike up a conversation over who can leap the furthest, how do we go about making new friends as an adult?
Well, you can start by joining in with event and meet ups - we all need to start somewhere. I know a few years ago I was umming and ahing if i should go to an event to the point where i got ready to leave the house and then decided to get into my Pj's. Then after sitting there, I decided not to spend another night home alone so I got dressed again and left the house... it turned out to be an awesome night and the start to some amazing friendships. So on that note give it a go - what have you got to lose?
On a side note!!
Please remember that although attraction does happen and people do date, please be respectful that this group is not a Singles group. People have not joined with the sole purpose of dating, they have joined to make friends. If anyone feels like they are being harassed or someone is making them feel uncomfortable, please let me know immediately. This will not be tolerated.
