Hey all,
I have having trouble finding friends to get to know and hang out with. I have never had as much trouble up north as I am down here. Any ideas? I would like for them to be Christians rather than in bars or clubs. I enjoy active, adult singles or mixed groups of couples and singles that enjoy going out and doing all kinds of things. Movies, going out to eat, bowling, whitewater rafting, shopping, travelling, sight-seeing, and soo much more. Please let me know where to look. Im sure they are here somewhere, I just cant find them.
Thanks

What about Meetups? It's online in the Charlotte area. There is also something that one of the girls had previously posted but I don't remember exactly what it is. Google Charlotte social groups and see what you come up with.

I'm curious, where do you live?

The only perfect answer that gives everything you want: movies, rafting, a non-meat market/bar group is:
Charlotte Outdoor Adventures...link:
Carolinas Outdoor Adventures - the largest and most active outdoor sport and social organization in Charlotte and greater Carolinas

An event is going on EVERY night of the week: boating, hiking, rafting, group Caribbean cruises and ski vacations, movie night, dog parties, YOU NAME IT!


Other ideas:
Bravo Young Professionals links:
Opera Carolina: BRAVO! (http://www.operacarolina.org/involved_bravo.php - broken link)
HOME (http://www.operayoungprofessionals.org - broken link)
Mint Museum Young Professionals link:
The Mint Museums: Museum Affiliates (http://www.mintmuseum.org/membership_affiliates.php - broken link)
NC Dance Young Affiliates:
Opening Night Insiders, North Carolina Dance Theatre

Good luck--

If you want them to be 'Christians', then church is a great place.
Active single and married groups can be found and many, many, churches around the area.

A previous poster mentioned meetups but didn't include the link. Do something, Learn something, Share something, Change something - Meetup.com. Browse by city under Religions & Beliefs and you will find a couple Christian groups.
