I have been a member and also an organizer of several meetups. I was hoping to make some new friends. What a waste of time for the most part. Anyone who is "normal" already has friends and meetup is good for a fill in when they are bored. Then there are the Debbie downers and negative Nancy's who want to use the organizer and other members as their personal psychotherapist. Listening to other people's problems and health issues are not my idea of a good time.. I have my own problems. Lastly you have the members who think the organizer is their private cruise director or court jester. Put on the earth to entertain them. The biggest joke of all is that the gets to pay $14.99 a month to do this, plan and execute all events, and then actually get reviewed! Imagine a completely volunteer position where people can actually rate you on a 1-5 star basis! Talk about insanity. I deleted my account and swear to never return.
