The Weaver Social Club is a interesting new take on meeting people that does not require awkward first dates, getting up to the confidence to walk over to a hot group of girls or thinking about the perfect first message. You sign up, put up in your education and location, choose a few preferences like “I enjoy clubbing” or “I enjoy pubs”. And voila in 2 weeks, give or take you will be notified of a meeting place and a time. You take along your 2 best girl friends or wing men and once there you will meet 3 similar men / women that were picked especially for you.
Just a fun random casual night out meeting 3 awesome people with no expectations or awkwardness. If you don’t like the people you are meeting you can leave and if you like them you can always swap digits and arrange to meet again. Only the best venues in Johannesburg are used so the vibe is always great. There is a small cost, R79 a head to be exact but that also covers the cost of your first drink so that’s a small price to pay to meet interesting people.
The reason it takes so long to find a suitable meeting group is that the nice people at the Weaver Club take their time to match up people with similar interests, education and jobs in order to minimize the chance of zero conversation and a dud night. They also “screen” you just to make sure you are not some psycho killer. However, be warned, if you chicken out, you still might have to pay anyway. Besides it’s not nice to ditch people and you will have your best friends with you.
You never know who you might meet and because they check your Facebook friends you don’t have to stress that someone
you know might be there. They never post on your wall or send out messages on your behalf so you don’t have to worry about people knowing. Personally I haven’t tried it, but I would like to. The reviews look great. If this looks like your vibe, visit the Weaver Social Club website to join now!
