Oh wow! I'd never heard of meetup.com and just had a look, you've just opened me up to a new world!
I don't just mean potential-partner-meeting but finding others to do those random-things-I-enjoy-doing-but-my-friends-all-think-I'm-mad activities with!
I've just signed up to join a hiking group as I can not think of anything better to do with my Saturday then crawl over some mountain covered in mud but have been resorting dangerously taking myself off on my own to do.
It has been hard as I have only been in the states for two months, and have made some friends but don't want to encroach on them too much. This will hopefully be a great way to widen my social circle because I have been a little lonely and homesick of late.
