MeetUp in FL: Episode 1 - Lincoln

Let me tell you about my first experience with MeetUp. I was browsing the site on December 2, 2012 and found a group called Alcohol-Free Activities. This is appealing to me because I know how to socialize after a few drinks - that's easy. It's a little more challenging for a shy guy like me to get together with random people and do stuff completely sober. I didn't really care what they were doing. I just wanted to get out of the house and do something.

It turns out that they were going to watch a movie called Lincoln. I thought they were referring to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I was wrong but that's not a bad thing. It was still a really cool movie. If you're not a patriot or if you aren't interested in history, you might not like it though.

Anyways, I didn't go to the movie to see the movie really. I went to get out of the house and do something. Plus, I'm kinda sick of letting my shyness prevent me from doing something crazy like meeting up with total strangers and getting to know some new people. I had all kinds of worries about who I might find, like snobbs or creeps or something, but there was nobody like that around. Everybody was pretty cool and I'm glad I went. Success!
