So a couple of months back, I joined Meetup.
I’ve reached that point in my life where I’m at a different stage compared to my friends. It’s not necessarily a bad thing but sometimes you just want to do something different and everyone might not be free!
Meetup is a platform where you can join groups with a common interest in your local area. There are many different types of groups to join depending on what activity or hobby you want to do! For example, for the fitness fanatics, there are running groups that run together on a weekly basis. There’s even a group that goes to the movies every week. It’s a great way to meet new people or try new things in a friendly environment.
I joined a couple of social ladies groups and have made some really good friends. I must admit, it was quite daunting at first rocking up to an event and meeting some “random strangers” but everyone is genuinely very friendly and open to meeting new people. I guess that’s the point of meetup in the first place! Ha!
We go to quiz nights every fortnight (something I’ve always wanted to try and walk away feeling smarter every time!), paddle boarding on the weekends when the weather holds up, brunches, drinks and even went on a trip to Rottnest together.
Meetup has done wonders for my social life and has definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone to try new things. Here’s to all the girls that have added another colour to my life!
Until next time,
