Thumbs up Went to a meetup

I just got back from my first ever meetup from meetup.com. It was supposed to be 4 people total but only the organizer showed up. The other 2 guys were playing board games somewhere else. I was so nervous. We met up at a Starbucks....I showed up first. Ordered a drink and she came in with some games to play. She was super friendly. We played checkers, chess, and handy (forgot the name)?

We talked a little about occupations and stuff. I even told her I had SA. I stayed an hr it was fun I guess, I'm so proud of myself . Might meet up again in the future. The was my first time "hanging out" with someone in months.

Good job Kevin! That's a pretty important step

Endings are the saddest part,
So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start.”

While mouthwash is swishing, refresh you.
Come, Come where the mint flies in magic enchantment.
Up, up in the blue sky above you.

Good for you!! I wish I was brave enough to do that. Hopefully you can keep going. It's nice to get out once in a while for something other than work.

Do you plan on meeting them again? Was the girl cute? Did she like your charm Kevin?

Awesome! I should do that sometime. I looked around that site before found a few groups but some of the groups I was looking at didn't seem my style, everyone was much older. Still, someday... lol.

Would be nice to meetup again. She was normal girl cute if you catch my drift. She had a bf lol, made that clear right away. But I made her laugh a little bit. I'm so awkward but yeah.

She was all like you can come over to play games with my bf and our other friend, I was already freaking out....I just said just meeting right now is huge for me I haven't been out in awhile.

Yay, we're so proud of you! I hope one day I'll work up the courage to go to a meetup too.
