Dashing Whippets Running Team
New York, NY
The Dashing Whippets Running Team is a New York based running team that is founded on, and driven by, the diversity of our team members. With team members from all over the city, the country and the world, and with greatly different running goals, we find unity in recognizing and appreciating each others differences and our mutual enjoyment of running and participating in the New York running community and beyond. Our goal is to help each other become the best runners that we can and to fulfill our potential as athletes - whether that is to run your first race, run a PR, a marathon, an ultra marathon or an Ironman - our team spirit, expert coaches and training plans will help you achieve and exceed your goals. As a team, we aspire to be a net contributor to the running community by hosting multiple training sessions per week for runners of all abilities and pace, maintaining a low annual membership fee that ensures we are open to all, cheering at races and giving back to the community through volunteering and fundraising for local nonprofit organizations. The Dashing Whippets Running Team is a 501(c)(3) non-profit running organization operating under the Road Runners Club of America ([RRCA](http://www.rrca.org/)). We charge $30 in annual dues, but new members may try out the team for 90-days ([more info](http://www.dashingwhippets.org/messages/boards/thread/10341902)).

This group is open to active members of Shorewalkers, a non-profit group leading walks throughout the NYC area. Our volunteer hike leaders offer walks every weekend of the year and our signature event, a 32-mile hike around Manhattan called the Great Saunter, takes place on the first Saturday in May. To join this group, first register as a paid member at www.Shorewalkers.org. Come join us for a walk and experience NYC at 3 mph! Your participation in any of our activities is your acknowledgment that you are solely responsible for your own assessment of your abilities and your physical fitness to participate in that activity. Participants in any Shorewalkers activity are encouraged to discuss with the hike leader any limitation they may have that could affect their ability to fully participate in an event, especially on hikes outside city limits such as those on hiking trails. The hike leader may refuse to take anyone who lacks proper equipment as indicated in the hike description. Walkers must be physically fit and by joining any event you agree to waive all rights and claims for damages against Shorewalkers, it’s officers, directors, hike leaders, employees, event personnel or volunteers. Shorewalkers does not tolerate inappropriate behavior during its events. If you are subject to or witness any inappropriate behavior during a Shorewalker event, please contact the Shorewalker Meetup Organizers directly and report the behavior. Shorewalkers will investigate any reports of inappropriate behavior and take necessary action. Shorewalkers encourages social media posts of photos and videos taken during our events. We remind our members that such photos/videos are subject to the Content & Privacy guidelines of said social media platform. Shorewalkers reserves the right to use the photos/videos in any manner and for any reason, except for commercial purposes, without remuneration or attribution.

Sick of books, conferences, and groups that just talk about finding your ideal mate, or worse, giving you meaningless and repetitive information? Are you tired of looking for the one that God has for you? Christian Singles Connect was created to actually **solve** those problems. We take the time to actually look deep into the issues that plague singleness and pull out solutions. Through networking, debating, and events, we hope to end your days of loneliness. Invite your friends and let's have some fun! Men and women are welcome, and you don't have to be Christian to join. Note: We are a candid group and encourage everyone to speak, ask questions, and give their personal experiences. We try to keep things realistic, open, and honest. This is a safe place. We have members from ages 25 to 55 which live in multiple countries and states. We are officially located in Atlanta, GA, USA. . . . CSC Recommendations and Conduct. \*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\*\* The best way to utilize CSC is to befriend everyone, especially those of the opposite gender. Those interested in you will naturally gravitate toward you. We try to have lots of events there is no need to rush. For men, this gives you time to “predate” women at no cost. You don’t have to worry about dates because you’re getting to know the person while you hang out at CSC. For women, this allows you time to relax and “watch” the men to see who is a good fit. CSC works hard to provide events almost every weekend, especially during the warm months. Members come out often. If there is an event that you’d like to do, simply let the organizers know. CSC's desire is for your marriage. The goal of CSC Events is twofold. 1. To provide a “High School” environment where you can talk to those in the group to get to know them first, before you become romantic. 2. To be a “wing-person” so that you will be comfortable leaving home. (CSC recognizes that women generally outnumber the men, so we try to find places where there may be more single men available.) If you jump the gun and try to force a relationship, that person may become uncomfortable and not come back to the group. We’re not in the “grocery store” or at the “gas station.” There’s no need to rush. Also just because you liked someone at an event, there’s no need to jump into their DMs if they haven’t shown interest. The best way to know is to come back and be a regular at the events. Eventually your person will come. If anyone feels uncomfortable, please tell one of the organizers. We will work with the offending person and explain the “vibe” of CSC. If the person refuses to listen, we will ask them not to come back to any events and will remove their membership. CSC has a PG-13 energy. You may talk about almost anything that would be in a PG-13 movie. However, do not use excessive profanity or “mature” words/phrases. We understand that to express yourself, especially when discussing dating, you may want to talk about certain subjects. But “how” you talk about those subjects matters. Please don’t try to demean or dominate anyone. In doing so, you are proving that you need to work on yourself and deal with your own problems before dating. Enjoy. Relax. Chill. Be Friendly. Remember God is watching. Jay
Fabulous females seeking female friends over 50 for events
New York, NY
\*\*\*Seeking wonderful women who like to socialize, wine and dine, go to live music and other shows with women friends. If you are looking for great friends and fun times, you will fit right in. This is a women’s only group. I modified the group’s name as about 10 men have tried to join. \*\*\*\*\*A $1 membership was added May 26. I purchase tix to shows mostly at discount prices so that we are assured of sitting together. I have a good relationship with City Winery Concierge and they help me get seats for shows that I pay for directly thru The Winery. I have websites where I can get discount tix for their shows. Even though I don’t know where our seats will be, we all sit together and I have never gotten bad seats. If I get tix thru The Winery, I don’t pay a service fee as I buy an annual CW membership that gives me advance notice of shows as well. City Winery has no food/drink minimum. Most other places do. Before Omicron, I was getting discount tix to Birdland and a lot of us attended great jazz shows there. I keep my eye out for new discount tix daily. I am also looking for free shows, like the 2 art shows I have set up. I only set up shows for later in the day/ evenings due to medical issues that I have. For any further info please message me.

NYC Entrepreneurs coworking
New York, NY
**Welcoming New York City founders from all industries and stages.** Transitioning from employee to founder can be tough. The loss of community, accountability and peer group to bounce ideas off. Let alone, people to share a coffee with (unless you count your puppy or houseplant). This group helps alleviate some of these challenges, by bringing startup founders in New York (of any stage), together to cowork and provide a chance to bounce ideas off each other, helping to problem solve quicker and build even stronger businesses. We run a mix or free and paid events - so if you need to buy a ticket, make sure to head over to Eventbrite ASAP, to secure your spot. *To get the conversation going straight away, don't forget to join:* **WhatsApp** - [https://bit.ly/nyc-coworking-whatsapp](https://bit.ly/nyc-coworking-whatsapp) **Slack** - [https://bit.ly/nyc-coworking-slack](https://bit.ly/nyc-coworking-slack)

New York Narcissistic Abuse, CPTSD & Codependency Support
New York, NY
Please consider joining our sister group at: https://www.meetup.com/pittsburgh-narcissism-survivor-meetup-group/ for more daily meetings, workshops and consistent support and validation. We are a group for people who have suffered or are suffering from Narcissistic Abuse in a love or personal relationship. We will discuss and encourage sharing of our experiences, talk about trauma bonding and how to break the cycle. Most importantly, we will share our communal experience and provide support by listening and sharing our what we've gone through so that all attendees know that they are not alone. Please read this message carefully: Before signing up to any meeting in this group, you MUST attend a First Timers Meeting event. There are NO exceptions to this. These meetings are designed to ensure community safety and if you sign up for an Established Member event without attending one, you will be removed from that event. Before you do anything else, including signing up for an Established Members group, check out our "Events" section and sign up for a First Timers Group and attend one BEFORE you sign up for an Established Member meeting. We are very strict about this rule, so please do so as we hate to remove people from meetings and have to send a PM advising someone of this rule. All meetings are run through Zoom. The links and passwords are reset every day. The links are all sent the morning of the meetings. You will receive your link through whatever email you use through Meetup. Please ensure you have your settings with Meetup set to receive emails as they will come in through that email. If you sign up for a meeting, please check you have received your link well before the meeting as we do not check our emails during meetings. It is your responsibility to check that you have received your link - if you haven't received it and it's before meeting time, simply send your organizer (Kay R., Paige, Roby or Anthony) a PM and we will ensure you receive it. Some more general rules that will be reviewed in your First Timer's Meeting: DO NOT private message moderators/organizers unless you have a question regarding the group as a whole, or you didn't receive a link to the meeting. DO NOT message us for medical, legal, or general advice, and do not contact us to vent. We understand that times are tough and this is not an easy situation to deal with, but we are all running this group on a volunteer basis, and we do not have any medical or counseling degrees. If there is an emergency please call 911, contact your local police, hospital, or physician. There is also a domestic violence hotline (800.799.SAFE) and a suicide hotline (800-273-8255) - these are free 24 hour services. We appreciate your understanding in advance. DO NOT private message other members of the group. Again, this is an exception to the rule above, but if you see someone in a meeting you'd like to reach out to, please send the organizer of that meeting a message and we will ask that person if they consent to being contacted and will pass on your info to them. If a member tells you during a meeting to reach out to them, that is OK as they have consented already. This is for the safety of our members, which we take very seriously. We are happy you are here and hope you find this a supportive community. All of the rules are above are to ensure that you are safe and that the people you will be interacting with are validating, here for the 'right reasons', and are properly vetted. We look forward to meeting you! x Kay R.

You are welcome to join if you are 50+, if you don't have a pattern of no shows with other groups, are free of drama, and if you can bring a smile to the our next meetup.
