Want to make new and long lasting friendships based on similar interests in your local area? Meetup is the perfect solution to meeting new people.
Lasting friendships in such a mobile environment can be difficult to maintain. Considering our ever evolving lives it sometimes feels that just as you make a new friend it is time to move on! Meetup has the answer!
I moved to California without ever being in the state before. Making new friends was one of my biggest struggles. My husband had been in the military so I knew it was difficult but without the backing of the military network, California relationships were new and scary to navigate. I used Meetup to find groups with similar interests. I joined three different running groups. I made some long lasting friendships with people I never would have met otherwise. They have supported me through many difficult times this past year and have propelled me to become a better runner and a better athlete. These are people I want to be in touch with for the rest of our lives, no matter where that may take any of us. I know I would not have found these people had I not been introduced to the wonders of Meetup.
Lasting, supportive, interest related relationships are difficult to find as we get older. Meetup definitely has the potential to help all of us reach those valuable relationships.
Meetup allows you to join different groups or social clubs based on your shared interests. There is no end to the different amount of groups available and it is offered in many large cities.
