What we're about

There are a number of meetup groups in Singapore which offer to create communities but seem to be event organisers instead. They seem to be only interested in running large events where you have to queue, get name tags and then mill around hoping to catch someones eye and have a chat. The gender balance also seems to be wonky. This is my attempt to redefine socialising within the international community in Singapore. We will socialise in lovely locations, emphasise quality over quantity and focus in knowing each member. Further we will actively welcome and introduce people to each other. We will also have a mix of activities such as yoga, treks, drinks, dance, dinners so that you meet like minded people. Please join us and let us create a new movement.

Overcome SHYNESS with other ladies & gents who feel SHY! (21-45) (Happy Hours)

HI-SO Rooftop Pool Bar at SO Sofitel Singapore

Do you know that over 50% of our members think of themselves as being SHY, NERVOUS, ANXIOUS or INSECURE around people and especially around strangers in a social setting? They say that they struggle to make conversation, feel timid and are worried about making a poor impression on others. They say that they are lonely and isolated and don't go out as often as they would like to and have fewer close and intimate friends. If you also feel this way then you are not alone. More than half of all humanity feel the same way! SHYNESS has to be faced as it can slowly but surely become a prison of loneliness. Lots of people have been shy or lonely for some of their life but have learned to manage the counterproductive thinking, self-talk, and behaviors which feed their shyness. They have practiced their communication skills, learned a reliable process, experimented different approaches and come up with ways to be more comfortable and confident in meeting new people, making conversation and making new friends. We have decided that we should host meetups which will help shy people by providing a safe and secure social group and environment where they can confront their fears with others who feel the same way and slowly but surely overcome their shyness. If you can relate to this, join us to meet new like-minded ladies and gents, between the ages of 21 to 45 and make new friends! KARLENE will be your lovely host for the evening! She is fun-loving, full of energy and is of Chinese origin. She also speaks Mandarin and English fluently! EVENT COST : (payable in cash and will be collected by KARLENE at the start of the evening) - Ladies : $10 - Gents : $20 Please come and attend this meetup only if 1) You think you are SHY, NERVOUS, ANXIOUS or INSECURE around people 2) If you were feeling the above in the past and have overcome them 3) If you are a professional who helps SHY people address it. We will make the situation as conducive as possible 1) We have our own reserved quiet space for our group. 2) Our host will welcome you warmly when you come and help you get comfortable. 3) Our host will also introduce you to one or two of the other attendees so that you can warm up and get even more comfortable. 4) You will meet with other attendees who are also in the same mind frame as you are or have had the experience before and so you will gain a lot through your interactions. 5) You would not have to fear anyone making any judgments, passing comments or making you feel negative in any way. 6) You will be on your way to making new friends with like-minded people who have similar experiences and by attending regularly be able to overcome your fears and shyness. 7) Please be aware that this is not a therapy session but it may be very helpful for you to experiment with any overcoming or coping methods you may be trying out.

Have a look at photos from our recent meetups and see what you have been missing! http://bit.ly/MeetupPictures WHY SPEED FRIENDING? In our speed friending we arrange for you to meet and chat with each other. This gives you an easy way to meet new people in a way that completely dissolves barriers. This is NOT speed dating and so you will be meeting both ladies and gentlemen in mixed groups. The intent is to create friendships. Speed friending allows you to identify other people with common interests. The conversations that take place don’t have to be deep, profound or even scripted; simply discussing likes and dislikes may lead to future friendships. Here’s how it will be set-up: 1. Half of the group (mixed gender) will be in a fixed / standing place and the other half of the group (mixed gender) rotates. (We like people to stand as that delivers greater energy and also gives much greater visibility to body language.) Every 5 minutes or so, the rotating group will move to another person. During these intervals, each pair of people will get the opportunity to talk, develop a connection and possibly even spark a friendship. The time limits aren’t set in stone but it will be about 3-5 minutes. 2. RAM will be hosting the evening. He will be blowing the whistle or giving another sign to indicate that you should move to the next person. 3. We will meet from 7:30 pm onwards. You are welcome to purchase any food / beverages before we begin. 4. The Speed friending part will start exactly at 8:00 pm on-wards and continue till about 9:30 pm with a couple of comfort breaks. (If you are late then you can join the speed networking but you may not be able to meet as many people as you may have otherwise). 5. Happy Hours till 9pm. 6. Please be aware that over 75% of attendees are attending for the first time and over 95% of attendees come alone. You will not be alone. RAM will welcome you and help you get comfortable. 7. We are not a dating group. Our group is created to help ladies and gents meet other like minded ladies and gents and to make new friends. Please do not attend our event if a perfect gender balance is important for your enjoyment of our meet-up. Keep an open mind and join us to make new friends. ----------------------- You can contact RAM through his meetup profile with any questions.
