"It's hard to meet quality people in San Diego."
Where do you go to meet people with the same interests, values and sense of adventure that you have? In San Diego, they join Adventure Club to have fun, meet new people and maybe try something they have never done before. Hanging out in bars is not most people's idea of quality social interaction, but many do not know that there are options. Our people are what set us apart from other ways of meeting people and having fun.
"I am new to San Diego and don't know many people."
Most of us are not from here and find it difficult to meet new people. Our circle of friends was "back home" and our college friends are scattered all over. Going to bars to make friends doesn't make sense, unless you like crowded bars, intoxicated people and having to yell a conversation to the person next to you. ACSD invites hundreds of people to attend our events each month and you can meet lots of people who enjoy the things that you do.
"I need to put more FUN into my life!"
It seems that many people go to work each day, work hard, come home, watch TV and then go to sleep. Weekends may consist of sleeping in, more TV, errands and chores. Most people did not plan for their life to be so boring, it is just that they settled into a comfort zone. ACSD gets you out of the same old routine with fun events and activities each month. Go skydiving, go kart racing, attend a dinner or go on one of our Adventure Treks. You are sure to find lots of fun activities, which you will want to attend each month.
"My friends are all married or don't like doing what I like to do."
One-by-one, many people seem to grow apart from their circle of friends, for various reasons. Whether their interests have grown in different directions or personal commitments have prevented you from enjoying things together like before, things are not the same. When you attend our events, everyone is there because they WANT to be. You will not find anyone at our Wine Tasting event, unless they like wine. When we mix people of similar interests in a friendly setting, you are bound to meet people who like doing what you do.
"I don't feel comfortable meeting new people alone."
Meeting people doesn't have to be difficult. If you are all alone, going into a strange situation, not knowing anyone, that could be intimidating. ACSD eases you into the social scene by inviting you to come talk with us when you join. We answer questions, show you the program and put you at ease. Then, we suggest that your first event be an Ice Breaker for new members only. EVERYONE attending is in the same boat as you. We play games and introduce people so that they relax and enjoy themselves. Once you come to your first event, get there early and introduce yourself to the Event Leader. They will introduce you around and keep an eye out to make sure you are having a good time. Taking the first step is always the toughest.
"I just got out of a relationship and am not ready to date yet."
No problem. We are NOT a dating service and do not match people up. We provide dozens of exciting events and adventures for our members to have fun at. You will meet other people, but where it goes from there is up to you. Many people join and attend events without the pressure of looking for a date. It is a great way to expand your circle of friends and have fun at the same time.
"Work takes up too much time and I don't have time to get out and have fun."
Most people tend to work more than the normal 40-hour work week these days. That doesn't leave much time for getting together with friends and doing the things that you like to do. That is where ACSD comes in. We plan the calendar, arrange for reservations and all the details of each event. All you do is get off from work in time to come have some fun.
"I am ready to meet someone special, but don't want the pressure."
Many of our members have tried the online dating sites and speed dating, but have not made that connection that they are looking for. The online sites generally give you a "picture and a paragraph" to try to let you know about the person. Speed dating is a fast interview, with the same questions and not a good chance to really get to know someone. ACSD is different in that you interact with people for several hours at an event and can see how they carry themselves and get a better feel for how they are as a person. There is never any pressure as our events are relaxed and friendly.
"I got tired of hearing what my friends did over the weekend!"
We hear this all of the time! Our members go on a great trip, attend a great event or try something for the first time with us and they tell everyone at work on Monday morning what they did. Some people tell their co-workers about the group, but others want to keep this treasure all to themselves. Ask a friend who is a member to invite you to an event. Who knows, you may be the one telling the story next Monday!
"I can not believe all the incredible events each month."
Believe it! We sponsor all of these events and are adding new ones all of the time. If it is fun, social and can bring people together for fun and camaraderie, we will put it on the calendar. Our day trips, parties and vacations tend to draw big crowds, so remember to pay for your spot early. Also, feel free to suggest events as we are open to all ideas. Give us a couple months lead time so that we can put together a great event.
