A few years ago, when the movie "Sleepless in Seattle" came out, a local columnist (whose name shall mercifully remain unmentioned except to say it was Eric Lacitis) commented that he found the movie kind of silly, because he couldn't believe that single people would have any trouble finding each other. Well, after the column came out, they practically had to remove the protest mail from his desk with a forklift.
In a subsequent column, he marvelled at how many letters he had received from single men and women, and wondered aloud why they didn't all just get together.
So they did.
This was how the group Seattle's Sleepless came to be. It's a nonprofit, volunteer effort, and they organize and put on various events and functions for singles thoughout the year, frequently attracting hundreds of participants.
Unfortunately, a lot of people in their 20's and 30's who showed up felt a little out of place at events that mainly seemed to attract people in their late 40's, 50's and up.
So in the spirit of do-it-yourselfism, we started the same kind of group for us younger folks. Except that we are more informally organized, and a little more active in some ways. Officially, we are still a sub-group of Sleepless, but we have our own web site, meetings and events. So far, the membership is just about split 50/50, between men and women.
We're a completely nonprofit, all-volunteer organization. Because of this, we are completely responsive to our members, and unaffected by financial or profit-oriented motives. As a result, we are free to make this group whatever we want it to be, and help you meet the kind of people you want to meet, in a fun, relaxed and informal setting.
Most people who find it difficult to meet other singles remark that their biggest problem is just knowing where to look for quality people. So if you don't instantly hit it off with someone, don't get discouraged. We're growing steadily, and have a constant influx of new members. This group is all about having a good time, and giving you the opportunity to meet and mingle with a constantly-changing group of others like yourself.
Restless exists because the people making it up contribute to it by suggesting or hosting events, help out, and enjoy getting together. So come on down and meet everybody, sign up for some events, get involved, and have some fun!
