Single Events Fort Lauderdale meetups

Fort Lauderdale Meetups

What to Expect from Events & Adventures

We can all agree that 2020 has been a tough year for keeping any kind of social life. Fort Lauderdale has not been an exception to this rule. As we all struggle to adapt to new norms like working from home or masking up at the store, our social lives need some adjustments as well. More than ever, connecting with other people has become an essential, and somewhat tricky concept to navigate. Luckily, Fort Lauderdale meetups can help here!

Events & Adventures has been bringing singles together for over 30 years through casual, fun hangouts at hosted events where everyone is single. Fort Lauderdale meetups from Events & Adventure take full advantage of the amazing weather and local venues to treat single members to a truly unique calendar of events.

Taking the recent events into consideration, the events have been adjusted to keep everyone’s safety in mind. The addition of a full suite of virtual events has helped our singles stay connected during the worst of the pandemic, but there is light at the end of the tunnel! Things are returning back to normal! Now our singles get to enjoy the best of both virtual and in-person events, so you can stay social no matter what is happening outside.

The single members in each of our clubs are what give each city character. There are always new people to meet, new things to do, and a different dating perspective to find. When people relax and hang out as a group, connections form naturally, whether it is friendship or romance. To truly get an insider’s view on what Fort Lauderdale meetups look like, we’ve spoken with the Event Manager in Fort Lauderdale, for some insight on her club. The Event Manager plans all the fun and is one-on-one with the members on a daily basis. We did a quick Q&A with her to see what she had to say on Fort Lauderdale’s singles scene.

 

Q. What makes your city special?

A. Fort Lauderdale meetups are special because this city is the main meeting spot for all of our members and the most familiar to people in South Florida. We have members from West Palm Beach/Jupiter/Delray Beach and Miami/Kendall/South Beach, with Fort Lauderdale as the sweet spot. Everything is within walking distance in Fort Lauderdale which is a breath of fresh air because you know the party isn’t going to stop to re-park your car. Fort Lauderdale meetups carry on like a bar hop from one thing to another!

Q. If there was one word to describe what the single members in your group are like, what would it be and why?

A. Members here are open-minded. Single people as a whole want to continue to grow and experience life to the fullest! The only thing holding most people back is not having others to do it with. We have one member who continuously buries himself in his work and has never done much that Fort Lauderdale has to offer. Since joining the club, he targets events that he’s never done; such as going to open-mic nights, trying Indian food, rock climbing, and beach volleyball.

It’s funny, too, because he will sit back and watch at first but by the end of the event, he’s the expert! “You’re going to go from this rock, to that rock, to the other rock and you’ll be at the top. Watch!” And he’ll scale the hardest wall in the gym, effortlessly. It’s really thrilling watching people do something they’ve never done before and enjoy it. Regardless of if they’re naturals like he is, everyone beams when they are experiencing something with others. It’s human nature.

Q. What’s your personal favorite event out of all the Fort Lauderdale meetups?

A. A great night in Fort Lauderdale? It depends on what outfit you want to wear. If you’re coming from work – go to Las Olas. Start the night at the NSU Museum with 1-for-2 drinks and happy art, then walk down the street for dinner (at literally any restaurant, they’re all amazing). A little further down, there are great theme bars with live music and karaoke. If you want to let your hair down, I suggest night volleyball to watch the sunset, BYOB and unwind with some sandy competition!

Q. What are the most popular events attended by the members?

A. The most popular events are game nights! We always have them at a different location and games are a light-hearted, easy way of connecting with other people. Over games, there’s no forced small talk, which singles typically dislike. It’s just bonding over a game and enjoying the night in a very casual fun way.

Q. Have you witnessed love connections?

A. I see love connections all the time! But this is because we offer people such a unique way to meet people! When you’re doing something you love and just having fun, sparks are bound to fly. I’ve seen a lot of beautiful friendships blossom in the club. As most adults experience, making friends (outside of work) is very difficult. We put together events that bring out the best of people’s personalities and interests, which makes it really easy to form friendships – not just acquaintances.

This type of energy (friendship and comradery) is so attractive that it brings a lot of attention to our group when we’re in public places. If we’re playing volleyball – people will join us, if we’re rock climbing – people want to talk to us. A lot of what you’re going to find is dependent on the energy you’re putting out there, so the more a person joins in and gets involved, the more of a chance they will have to find that love connection or friendship that will actually last.

Whether you’re looking to get out of the house, make new friends, or to meet someone special, Events & Adventures offers something from everyone. If you’d like to check out our Fort Lauderdale meetups and meet some of it’s amazing singles, just visit eventsandadventures.com.

Vancouver Skyline Kayaking

A Meetup in Vancouver

What To Expect From Events & Adventures

Wondering what an Events & Adventures meetup in Vancouver looks like? Dating is difficult enough on its own, so how do you know that you aren’t going to be wasting your time? Events & Adventures has been bringing single people together for over 30 years, and Vancouver has always been an exciting scene for singles with tons of things to do locally. It seemed like a natural spot to start a new Events & Adventures club.

The single members in each of our clubs are what give each city character. There are always new people to meet, new things to do, and a different dating perspective to find. When people relax and hang out as a group, connections form naturally, whether it is friendship or romance. Events & Adventures Vancouver hosts over 30 dynamic events every month, from local outings to weekend trips and everything in between. Whether you like sports, happy hours, morning yoga, or outdoor adventures, there’s something for everyone. A meetup in Vancouver has excitement in store on any day of the week.

With COVID putting a damper on the dating scene, Events & Adventures was inspired to create virtual events for their single members as well. So, even if you’re stuck at home, it doesn’t mean you can’t keep up a social life. Unique virtual events like Cards Against Humanity Nights, Trivia Nights and many others became huge hits! We’ve decided to keep these events permanent, offering our single members the ability to join our group events from the comfort of home. This has been an amazing addition for Vancouver’s busier members who have little time to meet people around their work schedule.

To truly get an insider’s view on what a meetup in Vancouver looks like, we’ve spoken with Impreet, the Event Manager in Vancouver, for some insight on her club. The Event Manager plans all the fun and is one-on-one with the members on a daily basis. We did a quick Q&A with her to see what she had to say on Vancouver’s singles scene.

Q: What makes your city special?

A: Vancouver is special for many reasons, but the best part is how close we are to the mountains and the ocean. During some parts of the year, you can hit up the mountains in the morning for snowboarding, then go paddle-boarding in the afternoon. It’s an adventurous city filled with adventurous individuals. The members in Vancouver are awesome in so many ways. Our members are not afraid to take risks and are extremely supportive of the adventurous things you try! Afraid of heights, but want to try bungee jumping? Our members will be there cheering you on and being extremely supportive of it! It’s great to have an awesome group of friends to help you face your fears.

Q: If there was one word to describe what the single members in your group are like, what would it be and why?

A: Vancouver members are definitely friendly. All the members join the group for almost the same reasons—they are all here to make friends and potentially meet a life partner so everyone is really friendly and wants to get to know everyone who is a part of the club.

Q: What’s your personal favorite meetup in Vancouver?

A: I would say our White-Water Rafting & Camping trip we have every year. This trip is ALWAYS a blast and we always have over 40 members attend the weekend getaway! For something more local, I would say bowling. A lot of our members’ fun and competitive sides come out during bowling and we all always laugh it off together, which makes the experience so much more fun!

Q: What are the most popular events attended by the members?

A: Popular events are definitely the close weekend getaways. Whether we are heading to Harrison, houseboating, or Chilliwack for our rating and camping trip – those events always have huge numbers. For our in-town events, our pizza and games night always draws a large crowd. We have this event once a month and we end up staying at the venue for 2-3 hours playing board games!

Q: Have you witnessed love connections?

A: Absolutely. I’ve witnessed many love connections and it’s awesome to get to see two people come together because of our events. Many of the couples I have witnessed are still together, engaged, or married!

A meetup in Vancouver is a way for you to try something new, meet new people, and maybe find someone special. At the very least, you will have a blast. Being single, especially at this difficult time, does not mean you have to be alone.

skydiving meetup in dallas

A Meetup in Dallas

Wondering what an Events & Adventures meetup in Dallas looks like?

The single members of each of our E&A clubs are what give each city character! Events & Adventures has been bringing singles together for over 30 years. We host over 30 events every month, ranging from local events and sports to world travel and game nights. Recently, we’ve added virtual events to our calendar, so Dallas singles can stay social even if they’re busy or perhaps a little shy. Dallas has no shortage of excitement with skydiving and ziplining on the summer calendar, and no shortage of singles that love to have fun. We’ve asked the Event Manager in Dallas to give a little insight into what makes Events & Adventures Dallas special. The Event Manager in each city is who keeps the whole show running, and is the best person to show you what a meetup in Dallas is really all about.

Q. What makes your city special?

A. Dallas is special because all of the members are so inclusive. We have members from all over–in the heart of Dallas, down in Fort Worth and even some as far north as Oklahoma. Regardless of where members live or where they come from, they go out of their way to get together and remain connected. While some members may join exclusively for the prospect of love, they create these lasting friendships and relationships that last a lifetime.

Q. If there was one word to describe what the single members in your group are like, what would it be and why?

A. The best word to describe our club’s members is big-hearted. As the event manager, I’ve witnessed and experienced countless acts of kindness, seen members rally around and uplift one another, and have had the pleasure of watching the most genuine and beautiful connections form. From going out of their way to make new members feel welcome immediately, to organizing fundraisers for members down on their luck, to offering to bring the event manager soup while she was sick, they always have each other’s backs. These members have some of the biggest hearts I’ve encountered and it’s inspiring to see those hearts in action.

Q. What’s your personal favorite meetup in Dallas?

A. My absolute favorite event is our party barges! It’s a giant party on the lake with 100 of your closest friends! There’s food, a DJ, waterslide, and the occasional cannonball contest. What more could you want?

Q. What are the most popular events attended by the members?

A. Dallas members LOVE sand volleyball! When the weather warms up, we hit the courts every Wednesday. There’s always a huge turnout. I always suggest it as a good first-time event for new members because they get to meet so many new people at once in a relaxed environment. Whether you come for some friendly competition or just come to socialize and mingle, people always have a great time!

Q. Have you witnessed love connections?

A. Yes, all the time! It’s always so special to hear about new couples that have formed. One of my event hosts is engaged and getting married later this year to someone she met at one of her first E&A events. What’s awesome about E&A is there’s no pressure to form these connections–the events help to facilitate organic and real relationships.

If you’re looking to try a meetup in Dallas, there has not been a better time than now. As Dallas starts returning back to normal life, we can finally get out of the house and start enjoying the summer. Even if you are not ready to venture out into the wild yet, you can start meeting our single members at our virtual events from the comfort of your home. Our Dallas members can’t wait to meet you!

Singles Outdoor Fun

A Meetup in Minneapolis

What to Expect From Events & Adventures

Each Events & Adventures (E&A) location has unique characteristics that make it interesting and fun. A meetup in Minneapolis will look different than a meetup in San Francisco, not only because of the different activities available, but because of the incredible single members that make up each group.

Events & Adventures has been bringing singles together for over 30 years! It’s a casual way of meeting new people while doing things you love. It just so happens that everyone with you will also be single! Whether you’re looking for fun adventures and new friendships or for a true love connection, Events & Adventures handles all the planning and details so you can focus on having fun. Sparks are bound to fly when you gather eligible singles together. We help you make that happen.

We’ve gone straight to the source to get the details on what a meetup in Minneapolis really looks like by interviewing the Event Manager with E&A. Once you’re signed up, this Event Manager is going to be your contact for schedules, events, questions, and more. They are also the best person to give you an intimate view of what to expect, as they interact with our single members every week!

We asked Reid to comment on what people can expect from a meetup in Minneapolis:

Q: What makes a meetup in Minneapolis special?

A: With almost 7,000 acres of parkland and water, Minneapolis provides our members with daily opportunities to connect with one another in the beauty of nature without leaving the city.  Engaging with one another in outdoor activities creates strong bonds and lasting memories.  The winters may be cold, but Minneapolis members still thrive with an abundance of winter activities like skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, ice skating and more!

Q: If there was one word to describe what the single members in your group are like, what would it be and why?

A: Welcoming – Minneapolis members tend to be very active in a wide range of interests and activities that the city and its surroundings have to offer.  Food, culture, nightlife and the amazing art scene, all seem to be magnified by the serenity and peacefulness of a city which has embraced and amplified its green spaces during economic growth.  There’s not a lot to complain about here and in this spirit our members are very welcoming to one another and always eager to pull a chair over to include you in the group.

Q: What’s your personal favorite meetup at Events & Adventures?

A: My favorite meetups are when we are able to gather together in nature at local and even state parks.  Hiking, boating and getting to know one another outside is always a great recipe for forming strong bonds with one another.

Q: What are the most popular events attended by the members?

A: Members in Minneapolis love the outdoors and our volleyball but you will always find us in large groups year-round bowling turkeys and enjoying a pint together.

Q: Have you witnessed love connections?

A: We see romance all the time. It’s just so easy to connect with the people in Events & Adventures because you are creating bonds over shared activities. No one is pressuring you to make a connection or forcing you out on a date. You’re just hanging out, doing cool things, and meeting new people. It’s natural that someone hits it off with another club member and if not, that’s fine too because you’ve had an amazing time, experienced something new, and made new friends.

There’s never been a better time to sign up for Events & Adventures. The recent months have kept us cooped up in the house but summer is on the way.

If you’re single and looking to join our membership in Minneapolis, just sign up today to speak to our professional staff at www.eventsandadventures.com.

Singles on first Date

First Date Tips For Singles

Need a kick to your dating life?

We thought so! What better way to re-ignite that fire than to brush up on some first date tips from the people who do this for a living?

Events & Adventures has been helping relationships blossom for over 30 years. You’d be amazed at how easy it is to create a spark just by putting singles together in activities they all enjoy. However, dating is not always an exact science, and there is no magic formula. The recent COVID-19 uncertainty has also put a damper on romance, forcing all of us to reconsider how we approach relationships. But the good news is, the world is slowly returning to normal and summer romances are just on the horizon!

Here are 10 first date tips to bring with you into your summer dating scene, whether you are in a group setting or having one-on-one time with someone special.

Be Confident & Friendly

No one likes a big ego, but confidence is very attractive! Group events may seem intimidating; however, it’s quite simple! Just introduce yourself! In this setting, it’s completely normal, even encouraged, to just approach people and start conversations. Share something about yourself and ask others to do the same. A friendly attitude and a willingness to get to know others show confidence and good spirits.

Keep Conversation Light

Some people have a tendency to overshare. Keep the conversation to what’s going on around you. Luckily, at Events & Adventures, you’ll have plenty to discuss whether you’re sight-seeing on a kayaking trip or taking in the nature during a hike. Try to avoid any “ex” topics. A relationship doesn’t seem appealing if the other person is still holding on to the old one.  Leave the resentments in the past and work on something new with the singles you’re meeting now.

Choose Common Ground

Found someone you’re interested in? Try inviting them to an off-site date where you can have some alone time. The first date should always be somewhere you both feel comfortable. Usually, a public setting, like a coffee shop, restaurant, or other fun outing is best practice. You can even leave the intimate dinner date for later, and choose a more interesting outing like a trip to the aquarium. You should have a pretty solid understanding of what your dates interests are, based on where you meet them at Events &Adventures!

The Dreaded Check

WHO PAYS?? A contentious topic, but a necessary one. Traditionally, the man pays. However, ladies, come prepared to split the check just in case. Gentlemen, if you’d like to impress your date, you should pay.

Turn Off Your Phone

This is a no-brainer! If you can’t leave business to rest for an hour or two, wait until you have a day where you can. Should an emergency arise, excuse yourself, and be brief. Don’t let anything take your attention from your date.

Don’t Default to the Bar

This is an easy mistake to make. Of course, drinks might seem like a casual choice with easy conversation, but it shows no effort on your part. Drinks often lead to both parties not being their true self, and can even turn sloppy if you’re not careful. If you’re really trying to get to know someone, a crowded bar is not the place. Events & Adventures has a ton of activities outside the bar scene that will spark your next first date idea.

Don’t “Play It Cool”

One of the most important first date tips is to try to be authentic! Acting like you don’t care isn’t cool, it actually makes your date feel insecure and uncomfortable. If you’re interested, then show that interest by asking your date about themselves, paying attention, and actively responding in the conversation.

Avoid Trigger Topics

There’s a time and place to discuss politics and a first date is not it! Even if you think the other person may potentially have similar views or they voice agreement, just steer the conversation into somewhere else. This can lead an uncomfortable situation or even an argument. Same goes for hot topics like religion, sex, or anything too controversial. The first date is for fun conversation and lighthearted laughs, not political views.

Asking for a Second Date

This one can be tough to navigate but try to keep it simple. As a rule of thumb, wait to ask for a second date until after your first date has already ended and the person has gone home. Express that you had a great time, and let them know you’ll be in touch. Asking during the date can make things slightly uncomfortable, especially if you’re judging the date incorrectly. Wait until you and the date have had time to think over the night and reach out to them the next day if you are too excited to wait!

Don’t Give Up

One bad date is not a good reason to get down on yourself or to give up the dating scene altogether. There is someone out there for everyone, and sitting in your house won’t get you any closer to meeting them. Events & Adventures will help you meet eligible singles just doing things you love. So, you don’t have to crawl the bars or swipe aimlessly through profiles. Just go do what you love, and meet other singles who love those things too!

If you’re ready to live life more and put some of these first date tips into action, sign up for a membership today.

Dating Apps sharing Personal Information?

Are Dating Apps Sharing Your Personal Information?

Are dating apps sharing your personal information?
It seems like almost every day we learn of another report on the news where a large company has been hacked, or maybe even intentionally, releases information. What does this mean though? Is it really applicable to us? The answer—ABSOLUTELY!

Information is one of the most coveted assets for online scammers–especially when it comes to your personal information. From dating to banking, we do it all online, automatically assuming these apps and services have the necessary protections in place to keep our information safe. However, dating services in particular have long been held up to scrutiny regarding the effectiveness of their security for their love-seeking members.

What’s Happening?
The most notable, and maybe most morally questionable, breach occurred with Ashley Madison in 2016. The dating site, which promotes discreet affairs for married individuals, uses the slogan, “Life is Short. Have an Affair.” to attract potential members. In 2016, the most popular dating site you’ve never heard of leaked information about 37 million of its members. Not so discreet!

Many dating apps and websites have since followed suit, with evidence of major security flaws, full breaches, and worst of all, intentional sharing of information. The sidestep shuffle around US and international security laws has allowed some sites to release private information such as location data, employment information, sexual preference/orientation data, personal details, phone numbers, and more. Not only does this expose us to potential financial security threats, but to a full range of interpersonal issues such as identity theft or harassment. For example, how comfortable would you be with your dating profile showing up in a potential employer’s search? Or if your neighbor could look up your sexual orientation? By nature, these sites host a variety of private details that may not be as protected as we are sometimes led to believe.

Meet People Naturally
There are more natural ways of dating that do not have to involve profiles, endless swiping, and potential exposure of your private information. Events & Adventures lets you put the phone down and truly meet people face-to-face, without the usual discomfort of first dates. A membership with Events & Adventures allows you to choose your favorite activities from over 30 dynamic events per month, and the best part is, everyone there will be single! It is the nation’s largest social club for singles where the only information shared is the kind whispered over wine at dinner, or yelled from the tops of your favorite mountain trails. With so many activities, everyone can find something they love to do, without the pressure of making a connection. It’s about making genuine connections and friendships, and learning to just have fun!

You could take the time to hack-proof your profiles or look into privacy agreements, or you could come to Events & Adventures, where none of that stuff matters. Besides, chances are you’ll find someone here who will spark your interest enough to delete all the useless apps. Break up with online dating and visit us at www.eventsandadventures.com.

Events and Adventures Thailand Trip 2019

Thailand Trip Q&A

This February, Events & Adventures ventured out on a 14-day international trip to the exotic paradise of Thailand. What better way to learn about this amazing trip than hearing from the people that got to go on the adventure themselves?

We had a super fun Q & A with two of our members that joined Events & Adventures on our exciting Thailand trip: Rachel Wolfson from our Chicago Club and Susan Euing from our San Francisco Club. Here’s what they had to say about their time abroad with Events & Adventures:

Q: Have you ever been abroad before this trip?

R: Yes, but not with Events & Adventures. This was a first.

S: Yes, many times, but this was my first time with Events & Adventures.

 

Q: What was your favorite part of traveling with Events & Adventures?

R: My favorite part was meeting the different people from the other Events & Adventures locations and learning about Thailand from Natalie (our tour guide). It was fantastic exploring somewhere I had never been before.

S: The trip itinerary and it was a really great price!

 

Q: Out of all of the excursions you went on while in Thailand, which was your favorite and why?

R: I loved the floating river lodge. You got to be away from the rest of the world, no electricity, very peaceful while hearing the water underneath and relaxing overall. Also, we got to meet our first elephant, Wandi!

S: Personally, my favorite was the Hmong village. It was filled with very interesting people and culture.

 

Q: What was something unexpected that happened on the trip that left you pleasantly surprised?

R: When we got to play with baby tigers- they were so cute and surprisingly big at a month and a half old. I couldn’t believe the size of their paws at that age!

S: I had a wonderful and very compatible roommate. We are keeping up our new friendship even though we live two states away.

 

Q: Did you come back with any fun souvenirs?

R: A photo with frame (made out of recycled elephant dung) of one of my best friends from E&A and myself riding on U2, the elephant. We had lots of laughs on her and another elephant, as well as along the trip! Lots of great memories!

S: I bought a pig made out of rope for the year of the pig!

 

Q: If you could give someone going on Events & Adventures’s next Thailand trip a tip, what would it be?

R: Don’t be afraid to try something you’ve never done before. And make sure you bring comfortable walking shoes; there are lots of stairs! Try sitting with someone new each time you are sitting on the way to one of the spots you are going to explore so you can get to know them! you never know what type of similarities you might have!

S: Bring more dressy clothes than  you think you’ll need and get a full-body Thai massage!

 

Susan and Rachel’s amazing memories prove you can create lasting bonds while traveling the world with Events & Adventures. We can hardly wait for our next journey to a faraway land!

What exhilarating vacation will you be joining us on? Will you be floating down the Amazon River with us in August or staying stateside in NYC during the Holiday Season in November?

The number one requirement to come along? Join Events & Adventures! When you do, you get to live a life you love!

Dating App Experiment

The Dating App Experiment

The Dating App Experiment

As a single staff member of one of the Events & Adventures clubhouses, I decided to do a bit of an experiment with myself. Like a lot of people, I’m a dating app user; as a person dating in the 21st century it often feels like there aren’t many other options. As a simultaneous member of Events & Adventures, I started to compare and contrast my experiences with my online relationships and the ones I was seeing develop at Events & Adventures.

I’ve been on the classic apps like Tinder and Bumble and have tried some of the more obscure apps like Hinge and Coffee Meets Bagel. They each have different layouts and specialties that make them seem like lights at the end of a tunnel filled with fellow singles. In the end, each app seems to turn out to have a similar end: possible dates and little connection.

 

The Findings

Dating apps turned the very real and emotional experience of dating into a very numb and robotic game. I’ve found myself mindlessly swiping through people without even looking at them. The sensation of matching with someone seems to create more of an endorphin boost than an actual opportunity for a true connection.

I’ll never forget when I matched with a guy and mentioned meeting up for dinner with him pretty quickly, trying to bypass the small talk and make something out of a match that seemed promising. He agreed, we set a time and location. The next morning, he was gone. He deleted our match and seeing as that was the only form of contact I had with him, there was no way of getting in touch to see what happened.

The experience stung, but a part of me accepted it because we hadn’t even met. How could I hold this guy accountable when he was only a picture on a screen?

I’ve gone on my fair share of actual dates through these apps too. I’ve even been in short-term relationships with some of the men I’ve meet. The large majority of the time the connection I thought I had with these guys online didn’t come through in person. If we did actually have something in common, there seemed to be a pressure to put a definition on whatever we had right away, which ended up scaring one of us away. When you make dating the primary focus of any activity, there’s an expectation of trust and vulnerability almost instantly. How can you put that kind of pressure on someone you barely know?

Having heard friends express similar frustrations, I know I’m not alone in my dating app woes. I even hear us wondering aloud if there is something wrong with us because of our lack of success.

 

The Solution

Having experienced Events & Adventures for the last six months, I honestly believe it’s not us but the online dating system that’s to blame. Unlike the forced nature of online dating, Events & Adventures creates an organic environment for members to have fun being themselves.

Are you filled with random facts or a board game connoisseur? You can guarantee there’s a trivia or game night coming up with Events & Adventures. More of a sports fan? Every club has at least one viewing party or pickup game on the books. Are you a whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, or adrenaline junkie—or do you want to be? Events & Adventures has you covered there, too.

And the best part? Other people are doing all of these things with you. You’ll be able to build connections with people that have similar interests and have the opportunity to see these same people on a weekly, or even daily basis, without having to plan the get togethers yourself.

All of the romantic relationships I’ve seen develop between Events & Adventures members have come out of the weeks and months they have spent together at Events & Adventures events. When people have the chance to develop friendships, those friendships turn into trust, and that trust can very easily blossom into something more substantial like commitment and love.

Our members have the chance to cultivate relationships with each other without having to worry about defining their experiences, romantic or otherwise, because that’s not what Events & Adventures is about. Our goal is to help people live a life they love, and that definition is different for everyone.

As a self-proclaimed wallflower, I’ve really had the chance to soak up all of the wonderful benefits Events & Adventures provides its members. In a world so fueled by instant gratification, Events & Adventures slows things down and gives its members the change to enjoy their lives with friends, new and old. So why keep staring at a dating app filled with what-ifs and maybes and come have some promised fun with Events and Adventures? You never know where it might lead until you give it a try!

Dating When You’re a Busy Professional

Too Busy For Dating?

As a busy professional it can be a challenge to balance work, life and dating. If you’re like most single professionals, you’re too exhausted to plan a social life, so instead you end up binge watching TV or hanging out at the same old meat markets. There never seems to be enough time to plan fun and exciting things to do to help unwind from the busy work week.

Maybe you’ve even given online dating a try but found you were spending more time swiping than actually meeting people. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. Many professionals simply don’t have the time to date. But having a successful professional life shouldn’t mean that you are excluded from having a happy social and dating life.

A New Way To Meet People

That’s exactly what brought two vibrant and fun members of Events & Adventures together. Just like many single professionals, Jennifer was finding it hard to squeeze in time to date, let alone find someone that wasn’t wasting her time. After years of feeling frustrated with the dating scene, Jennifer felt as though she might need a little help with her social calendar. Jennifer joined her local Events & Adventures club to open herself up to exciting events and the possibility of meeting new people.

Between fun events like river rafting and murder mystery night Jennifer went to unwind with her Events & Adventures group at a Colorado Rockies baseball game. It was there that she was approached by Justin, a good looking, charming guy who was also a member of Events & Adventures. As the game played on they mingled with friends, celebrated with drinks and got to know each other a little more.

Facebook Plans to Launch Dating Feature for Singles

How Will The Facebook Dating Feature Compare To Other Platforms?

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently announced that Facebook will be invading the singles space with the release of their new Facebook dating feature. This move was seemingly inevitable, as Facebook had already become a source for building romantic relationships for some users. With the incredible amount of data that Facebook has on each user, it’s reasonable to say that they have a strong foundation for such an initiative. However, how this new feature will zdistinguish itself from other dating apps remains the question.

Like most dating apps, Facebook dating will feature a typical “swipe and like” type interface

Based on photos and descriptions, singles will get to decide if they’d like to start an electronic conversation with a fellow user. Although Facebook will automatically match singles with those who share commonalities, users are simply given photos and basic information to make their decisions. Zuckerberg hopes that singles will be able to cultivate real, long-term relationships using this new feature.

Nevertheless, the Facebook dating feature is not a groundbreaking concept. Attempting to start relationships with other singles via apps and online dating profiles has become the modern way of doing things. In order to meet the demand of a culture driven by social media, several electronic dating platforms have surfaced, including Tinder, Bumble and Hinge, to name a few.

Although these options are convenient, they may not be the best way to meet other singles. As you’ve probably heard someone complain, people don’t always look like their picture in real life. Real human interaction reveals traits and characteristics that simply can’t be translated through a dating app. After all, compatibility is best measured when you’re connecting with others face to face.

What if we went back to the oldfashioned way of doing things – building true, long-term relationships in person
