What was your experience? It seems like a good way to meet people if that’s what you wanted.
We dont have meetup.com in my country…so frustating… u can have meet up…man it sound great …
I looked at their groups many times , but have never gone to any events
Same here actually.
Okay thanks ever …but its a group of normal people…its hard to befriend them as i have bad cognition and negative …!!!
Yeah same can’t pluck up the courage or change my mind too often
You also have low self esteem. This is the root of all evil. Try CBT soon my friend
Have more faith!!
yes i did, i met up at a bar with a group of people and got talking to a nice woman who was older than me but she left and i just went home, i’ve been meaning to do it again but i’ve been busy lately and tbh i am a bit scared of doing it now and idk why.
I went to a few events on couchsurfing.com. I have looked at meetup events, but I’ve never actually gone. I want to, though.
I joined Connecting Singles in 2010 I use the forums there…its great…I talk about mental illness on it a lot too…
i’m going to look at it again lol
I’m too desperately shy to attend a meetup. I admire people who do, I’m actually envious of them. I really isolate myself a lot.
Even though I am rather high functioning, I still have problems with social awkwardness because of the illness. I can still only socialize so much anyways and I need my alone time. As long as I’m not a complete recluse!
The few events anywhere near my area are not for things I have any interest in.
Zis is fun!! I signed up on couchsurfing Not sure yet if i should actually participate
well, i just joined a social group and it looks like they do a lot of fun things so i asked my friend (who also has problems) if he wants to go with me some time and he is thinking about it, if he says no, i have a couple of other friends i can ask and hopefully someone can go with me as a plus one
I signed up a couple times and received a ton of email! Never went to anything and most cost money anyway
It is also more appropriate for couples to go together or single people. In my opinion anyway. I wanted to go to some vegan potluck for example, just hesitated. A bunch of single guys and girls were going on Facebook.
I guess, in reality. I am more in the double date brunch
A LOT of Meetup groups in my area - have been a handful of times - highly recommend it!
I like it. I enjoy the ones best when there is a focus to the group like a lecture or meditation. If it’s just to socialize I’m not interested.
