I’m not married, engaged, or even in a relationship (anymore), but I’ve been a Weddingbee reader for a couple years now, and this is the only place I could think of to go with my question!
I know there are bee meetups in certain areas, but those are – for the most part – for engaged or newly married ladies. I don’t think I’d be quite comfortable in that situation, despite my odd hobby interest in weddings. (The reason I read this site to begin with).
My question is this: where can a gal in her mid-20s hang out with other similarly aged gals, just for socializing? The reason I’m even asking is because I’ve worked with my boyfriend for the past couple years, and so have not had a normal “job” in which to meet anyone. I moved up here with him almost a year ago, and am going to school, but the couple ‘in person’ classes I took so far in the spring were mostly full of fresh-out-of-high-school drama, so… not really anyone I’d hang out with. I don’t go to clubs or play any sports, so meeting people doesn’t really happen. My guy and I enjoyed each others’ company and went on a lot of mini-trips together, so we were kind of unsocial. Now, I find myself in need of company!
I don’t really have any serious hobbies… I like to read, travel, go to Disneyland, do touristy stuff, check out zoos, movies, museums, boats, etc. I sometimes embroider but don’t knit, sew, or scrapbook (although I’d gladly partake if someone wanted to show me), and I don’t have any kids. I hardly ever drink and don’t go to clubs, but I do – ironically – like pina coladas. (And rain, come to think of it).
Basically… I’m just looking for something social that isn’t a group for singles, self-help, depression, addiction, new mothers, or divorcees. I just wanna hang out with women (or gay men – I’m not picky!) who are 20-35, normal, and don’t have all that fresh-out-of-high-school drama. (And I’m not even kidding – you wouldn’t believe some of the “group” and “social activity” weirdness on Craigslist).
I figured – maybe some nice ladies from Weddingbee would know of something? Sorry this is so long and random!
