wikiHow to Meet New People Through Meetup.com

Meetup gives you a great new way to be social so that you can gain new friends, develop new relationships, and meet new people who share your interests. Meetup is a social networking site for people who like to meet others the old fashion way, face to face, instead of over the internet. Just join one or more of the hundreds of groups in your area that catch your interest and you are on your way to making new connections. It is free to join a group, but some group organizers may charge a small fee to attend an event. If you don’t see a group you like, you can organize your own meetup group and invite others to join.
