Singles & Others Who Want To Meet People
Here's how to find singles or meet people at events near you.

Meetup.com
Meet people doing what you love. Meetup.com is not just for singles, but you can join any of their 250,000 groups worldwide, from wine tasting, to hiking to learning computer programing. There's also dating groups as well. Most meetups are face to face.  And it's free. Or you can start your own meetup group and teach or do something not offered. This will cost about $100 a year, but if your meetup becomes popular your members can chip in. See Cybersleuths of Metro Atlanta for the meetup I formed on how to do free online background checks!

EventBright.com
Choose your city and state and the date to see what free or low cost events are happening. Good if you're clueless on what to do on the weekend or want somewhere fun to take a date.
