Want to meet new, interesting people to make friends or discuss common careers, hobbies, movies, pets, or, even, politics? MeetUp.com may be the perfect choice. As their website states, MeetUp allows you to "Do Something, Learn Something, Share Something, or Change Something."
You will find local groups that share common interests that are self-organized and managed. Launched in 2001, MeetUp has grown and prospered in the past decade. This social networking site may not have the overwhelming power of Facebook, but for more mature adults, it can be a wonderful source of putting people together.
The world's largest network of local groups, MeetUp allows you to start or find gatherings of people interested in the your favorite topics. Even if you have more interest in companionship than discussing the "tea party" or those candidates wishing to occupy 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C., MeetUp may be the right choice. With more than 2,000 such groups around the U.S., you can find--or start--a local congregation that interests you.
Even those who may be "computer challenged" will find it easy to locate fun, interesting local groups. All you need to do is enter a topic that interests you (business, politics, sports, movies, etc.) and your zip code. Voila! The MeetUp search engine will quickly list those groups near your home. Along with their name, location, meeting dates, and number of members, you will receive a brief description of the focus of these groups. If something sparks your interest, you simply click on the group's name to learn more.
Put down that TV remote. Get off the couch. Put some fun and excitement in your life. MeetUp!
