Meetup #2: Book club success There was no such problem with my second foray to the “The Fort Lauderdale Girl-Time Book Club.” I’d been wanting to join a book club near my home in upstate New York for a long time and even had tried starting one with no success, but this group had been meeting for many years and had over 100 members, 32 of whom showed up to the January meeting to nominate book choices for the coming year.
They were mostly young women in their 20s to 40s with a few in their 50s.
I don’t feel brave, just desperate to escape the cold. I didn’t want to spend three months trying to start conversations with strangers at the beach or in bars (OK, if I could find a bar where the 65 guys hung out I might just try it).
Luckily, being an Internet junkie, I knew I had an ace in the hole:
Meetup #3: Movie & dinner My next Meetup was “The Women’s Movie and Book Club,” which had scheduled a screening of the movie “Selma” and dinner. I sat next to two Federal prosecutors from Palm Beach, one originally from Brooklyn, both of whom I never would have met any other way.
If it weren’t for my trusty GPS I never would have found the place – it looked like a Moorish palace, not a movie theater, but the group was down to earth and dinner was great fun. We hit it off famously and are planning to go to the movies together.
There’s no telephone support; if you have a question, use this link to send an email to the support team.
Meetup #1: Coffee & Conversation, a wash My first Meetup was underwhelming.
On the top right of your screen are a bell icon to see all your upcoming group meetings, three lines in a bubble to access messages from other members and group organizers, and three dots to find help and other stuff.
Some organizers pass on the costs by charging members dues of a few dollars a month.
I checked out Meetup before I made the arrived in Florida and found a plethora of local groups where I was likely to find like minded peeps.
Some groups meet weekly, others monthly or on a sporadic basis, but they all meet offline – in coffee shops and restaurants, members’ apartments and other local spots.
To join, you fill out a simple profile and upload a picture if you want to (highly recommended).
