I met FH at a meetup group 🙂 

 

otherwise, my experience has been mixed– it really depends on the group. some groups are just filled with weirdotoo usualltopic sci topics), and some are really clicky (been around a longtime and same ppl going each time). If you can find a relatively new group on a pretty neutral topic (eg board games), that’s probably your best bet 🙂

@californiabride2013:  OMG I just had my first meet-up fail last week!!! I live in the San Fernando Valley which is in LA county. Like a lot of LA, it has a lot of neighborhoods that are called by city names but aren’t cities. They have their own names but are technically “unincorporated LA county”. This means that sometimes neighborhoods pop up as “Alhambra” or “Granda Hills” but sometimes those same places are called “Los Angeles”.

So… I took the address for the bar off the meet-up site. It said it was just northeast of me, like a 10 minute drive on side streets. Awesome. When I plugged it into my GPS (as LA because that’s what the meetup said) it wanted me to get on the freeway! I opted to ignore it and follow the street directions and wait for the GPS to catch up. I ended up driving in circles for over 45 minutes!! I finally pulled over and looked up the bar on yelp… where it listed the same address but in GLENDALE- which was like 25 minutes from where I was! Honestly, if I had known it was in Glendale before I left I probably wouldn’t have gone- I was just going because it was so close. 

So no, I haven’t actually been to a meet-up yet. SIGH
