Having a hard time meeting new friends in this huge city? Have you always wanted a core group of friends to call "your girls?"
Here's my story: I recently moved to Melbourne from Vancouver, and had to leave "my girls" there. That's the burden of travel -- you have to leave people behind. It's always difficult to start fresh, but anyways I got here and am now hoping to build up a new social circle. I tried out a few meetup groups, and had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people but didn't really make any _real_ friends. So here I am, creating a new group in the hope of providing space for ladies like myself to make new friends and build lasting friendships.
I want to build a platform for people who are looking for the same thing I am. Friends who are there, not only to go out dolled up for drinks, but legit actual friends who are there throughout. We'll get together once a week-ish for wine/cocktails, to talk about life, work, boys, or whatever you want to vent/bitch about/get off your chest.
I'd like to bring together a group of women between 25 and 39 years so we're all at the same stage of life.
Let's have a couple of rules in place so that people who really need this group can get a chance to be part of it, and that it's not just another meetup.
1) If you RSVP to an event, please make sure you actually attend. There are people there who look forward to meeting you. If you RSVP then just don't bother to turn up, you'll be removed from the group immediately. There are always unforeseen things that crop up, but at least let me know that you're not going to be able to make it. Also, DO NOT make it a habit to cancel at the last minute, I take time out of my life to organise this. If you can't make it, just RSVP no - nobody wants friends who are flakey.
2) You will be expected to join us over meetups (of course not all of them) and to actively participate in group communications
3) As there's a waiting list to join the group and to respect those who are active and wanting to participate, if you disappear for 2 months or more, we'll need to remove you just to provide an opportunity to for those who are available to join in on the fun.
When I think of girlfriends, I think of the scene in Sex and the City (bear with me if you don't watch it), and no matter what happens - men, work, health - they are each other's rocks. If that sounds like something you want in your life, sign up and come drink some wine with us!
