I recently read on SS about a site called Meetup that is all about, wait for it... people meeting up. Strangers meeting up with other strangers. For coffee, dinner, a movie, walking, fun weekends, art and crafts, just about anything. Some of the Meetup groups have hundreds of members, some only a few. And I daresay, some of those strangers would become friends. That can't be bad.
http://www.meetup.com is world wide but there are no groups in my town nor the 2 towns closest to me. A few over in Mandurah though and I liked the sound of one of them so I joined up. They are having coffee and cake in Barragup one morning soon and I am hoping that I get up enough guts to actually go. I'm always whinging about having no friends and never going anywhere so if I don't take advantage of this group I'll have no-one to blame but myself. The place where they are going, Decadent C's, is not on my list of places that I want to go to, I have actually read about it and heard from someone that has been and decided that it wasn't for me but this will give me a chance to give them a chance.
Has anyone here heard of this site? Is anyone a member? Have a look at it and let me know what you think.
