When I joined it was instant. I don't think there is any actual screening. There are probably a couple of questions they require you to answer but I think it's just to encourage you to introduce yourself. Brief one sentence answers that don't reveal anything personal should be fine.

In fact a brief search shows the last person to have joined answered the questions as follows:

So I don't think you have anything to worry about.
Ok. Just sent in mines!

If I'm mistaken, the group at meetup.com, it says you have to PAY for the meetups...

Check this thread if your interested in hanging out minus an admission fee

You're somewhat mistaken. The group on meetup has professional paid therapy sessions listed as well as nonprofessional, member created meetings. Sometimes its requested to a contribute around six dollars to split the price for reserving a library room for the nonprofessional meetings.

Oh Okay that's good to know. Right now I'm more interested in just a get together/hang out rather then a therapy session, but I'm open to either

May 5th meetup?

Just wondering, how would the meet up go? we meet up, introduce each other, then what? I might just leave if it gets too awkward for me...

Anyways, I think the exploratorium is a good idea. They have an after dark event coming up May 5th.

http://www.exploratorium.edu/afterdark/afterdark-theworldofyoursense

"...include a cash bar and film screenings, plus an opportunity to play with our hundreds of hands-on exhibits."

I've been wanting to check one of these out. If enough of us are willing, lets do a meet up there on May 5th, sounds fun.

I'm down for a sa meetup in the sf/bay area. I was wondering if anyone was interested in co leading a regular meetup group for people with anxiety. I'm not 100% sure if I have enough ideas to get this going but if someone else would help me I can see it happening. Please pm me if you wanna talk.
