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!

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.
