It doesn't matter if you have never been married, going through separation or divorce, children or no children, you just need to be single and committed to a drama-free environment to join.
Our Meetup's purpose would be to provide Fox Valley Area singles the opportunity to go to events such as Happy Hours, Live Music performances, Wine Tasting events, Outdoor events (volleyball, softball, Frisbee, walking, biking, etc), Poker nights, Bunco nights, house parties, Sporting events, Gym nights, Trivia nights, Movie nights, really any event that's fun and exciting.
Generally, a single man and woman who know each other organize the gōkon in advance, each agreeing to bring three or four eligible friends.
The venue is usually a restaurant, an izakaya, or anywhere people can eat, drink and make a bit of noise.
In other cultures, group dating is becoming more popular as a safe alternative to single dating (especially blind dating), also helping to ease tension, because both parties will feel more comfortable having the company of their friends.
