    hi Jeannie,

    Maybe you could suggest a meeting place, and ones that are near there may want to plan to attend. I don't know who lives where except just a few.

    I'd love to meet you. I'm in north Georgia.

    We did a lot of meetups in the UK, had a great meetup in Florida many years ago and have done a few small ones in Canada since moving over here.

    Sometimes you have to put a shout out to see if anyone is interested in your area, otherwise there is little chance of anything happening.

    If anti-social-programmer-me can enjoy meeting up with some strangers, it can't really be that bad :D

    I've been to ex-jw meetups organized through the software.

    Others just organized here on JWN.

    Going to one in my area Saturday, resurrected ex-jw meetup group.

    All you need organizers, and supporters, and meet some like-minded people.

    Has their ever been any meet-ups here in Australia ? in any state ? Just curious , I`m in Victoria.

    I`m not one that jumps into relationships/meeting people at the best of times. so I dont know how I would go anyway.

    I tend to sus people out before I make myself known, I see myself as a middle of the road sort of a guy,not a leader ,nor do I want to be on the tail end ,if you know what I mean.

    Even in my workplace ,when a new person joined ,I would tend to sit back and see what they wew like before getting too chummy with them , unlike some who jumped in as if they were lifelong buddys ,sometimes to their sorrow.

    You know what I mean ?

    I just looked at , blondie ,I`ve been living under a rock ,seriously ,meetups for everything under the sun in Melbourne ,though under "religions" their were no JW sites.

    thanks for the link.

    had a great meetup in Florida many years ago

    Where in Florida was it? Do you remember? I'm a newbie only out since early this year and I've wondered if there ever is such a thing in my home state. I'm in south Florida, just south of Miami.

    I've been to quite a few, Toronto, Tahoe and local ones. A new group just started up in North County San Diego area and they just had a meetup last Saturday. My first was in the LA area by a young woman who left and was on her own; she ran it for a number of years. It wasn't a large group but different people came from all over.

    Another friend started one up in the Salt Lake City area.

    Just the best thing ever is to meet people that understand what we all are going through.
