    I'm seeking to expand my network, gather up a group of friends in NYC (people are so busy in the Big Apple it's harder to do than you think)

    I'm thinking of going to a meetup but am not sure if they're a waste or not. I feel that people who go to them who are also looking to make friends may not keep in contact... Than again I've never been to one so I'm speaking with no knowledge of what they're like or the people who go to them are like.

    What do you think for those how have been to them? Maybe joining some sort of club or league would be a better option?

    I've been planning to meet a few guys that I met on this site. No meet-ups yet on RJ, though. I've met one guy that I didn't first see on this site and he turned out to be a complete weirdo. So be careful!

    Really? All the guys I met on RJ have turned out to be normal good guys... only 3 so far but they're alright. I'm still friends with one of them so maybe I got lucky? idk

    Though, I agree, you need to be careful meeting people online nonetheless

    And most likely a member of a religious order will be waiting to make a move.

    they are worth it.

    I might try to set one up in late June if some of the old NYC/Tri-State area RJers are up for it. icon_smile.gif

    I'm from New York. But naturally, I might be a little nervous about that. *Shrugs*
