one of the meetup groups is hosting a party.  The venue is nice but it is not as spacious as the host is trying to make it out to be.  $15.00 a head. She provides the DJ, food, paper/plastic products and party favors.  204 woman and 71 men attending. That’s $4,125.00 she will barley break even on this thing.  She is trying to tell me it’s not going to be standing room only. She’s trying to tell me the music will not be so loud you can’t hear anyone.  She is trying to tell me standing around with 204 other woman I don’t know and can’t get to know because the music is to loud to hear is going to be three hours of fun. No, that’s a fucking nightmare to me! Try to sell me all you want on the thing to save your ass, the answer is still no.  I can stay home, spend less money, play cards, have real conversation and laughs, listen to music at a reasonable volume, have a place to sit, food to eat, plenty to drink, clean bathrooms I don’t have to stand in line for, and enjoy myself.  Shit I know who I am, and I don’t need a fucking event to validate me.  I am not that desperate that I need to act a fool in front of 71 men in the hopes to dance one dance or make a meaningful connection when I have to compete with 204 other woman for a mans attention and dancing with another woman or by myself is not my idea of fun either. Talk about being completely alone in a huge crowd. Anyone who says that is fun is a liar who doesn’t want to admit how foolish they feel.  They try to convince everyone around them that if they don’t participate that their the ones that are foolish.  It’s all about the money, and there is a sucker born every minute.

Hi thanks for your post.  You know they took pictures to post but only on sort of showed all the people there, but it was just their signatures on a poster.  Not a single picture of the dance floor or any other area.  Only couple pictures and group pictures of which I didn’t know a single person. I am glad I made the right decision.
