Bizarre, I just stumbled on to Meetup.com this morning before seeing your post.  I'll probably test drive a couple of groups.
I  myself have been looking at MeetUp.  Maybe a dumb question, but as you mentioned you have looked for groups that you have common interests in, what types of things have you found?

Is this pure Business (Small Business) Owners, or things like hobbies etc.  I'm just curious what mix has produced well for you.

Thanks !

Well, I test drove a couple of groups and even started one, and it's about as I expected:  Very few serious players, virtually no understanding of reciprocal business relationships, just people fishing for leads.

I joined a couple groups and ended up Test-driving one of the hot chicks I met in them. I also got this other one as a client (Small $25,000 but adding DCA every month).

They were a waste of time for the most part business-wise. Besides the happy hours with the divorced women craving some D.

Funny, years ago I had a similar experience.  Joined a group of desperate people trying to sell to me and my clients.  There was a horny divorced women among them.  Omar laid the pipe after a few cocktails one late evening.  Was worth the wasted time in meetings.  I may or may not have gone back for more...
The game is out there. Either play or get played.
