OK ladies and gents, I have the solution to our social dilemma: Meetup.com. If you’re anything like me, you just don’t have the energy marbles to be running all around town trying to find your cool niche. Well now you can run around the internet, to find groups that gather around subjects that interest you — meditation, dance, language, whatever. And if you don’t find a group that floats your boat, you can create your own!

I went to my first Meetup group a couple of weeks ago, and it was a life-altering experience. (I wrote about it in a previous post.) I just decided to create a Meetup group for people living with and healing from chronic pain. I’m so excited about our first meeting! I’ll let you know how it goes.

But seriously, check this Meetup thing out. Among other things, it organizes all the meetings for you, once you’ve selected the groups to which you want to belong. I mean, it’s like a freakin’ social secretary, and it don’t cost a thing!
