À propos de ce groupe

WELCOME! We're a fun group of people that include singles as well as couples who like to have some fun close to home. We are a group that is all about community, and finding lots of fun stuff to do. Dallas-Fort Worth is HUGE, and sometimes its nice to have Meetups in our own neighborhoods. We will have Meetups of all types, in and around Arlington, Grand Prairie, Mansfield, Hurst, Euless, Bedford, Irving, and other nearby locations. We welcome adults of all ages. This is NOT A DATING SITE.

We now require a photo of your actual self (no pets, landscapes, etc). Please make sure and do that, so we can recognize you when you attend our events.

We take our RSVPs seriously around here. Once you attend and meet an event host in person, you'll become an ACTIVE MEMBER! Some events are only open to ACTIVE MEMBERS.

We try to plan something different each week, and we host about 100 events per year, so jump on in to any event as your first! Be sure to read the event details to know how to find the group at each location. Come join us soon for some fun!

NOTE from Karin: I've updated the time to meet. Please be in the Oasis parking lot NO LATER THAN 5:30. We need to roll out of the lot at that time to connect with the larger group. I'll have glow necklaces to give away if you'd like one. If you miss connecting with us, feel free to join the ride at the Lake Ridge Parkway starting point. We can gather at the end of the ride to see if anyone would like to grab dinner or an adult beverage somewhere.

Come out and ride with us as we Join Mayor Ron Jensen, Mayor Betsy Price as well as officers from Grand Prairie and Fort Worth Police Departments for a dazzling bike ride through Prairie Lights Holiday Light Experience on Monday, Nov. 25 at 6 p.m. Free blinking light necklaces will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.
