What Meetup.com Would Be If All the Members Were Magically Compatible

We’ve discovered a rare flavor of folks – we call them Sugarmaples – who have the uncanny habit of becoming friends. All they need to plant the seed is an hour of conversation. So we invite them to meet through fun city outings.

A Typical Invite

Seattle Sugarmaples! Kayaking on Lake Union! Meet at the Northwest Outdoor Center, under the clock, Sunday at 10am. Leave stomach empty for possible rough seas and definite oversized lunch afterward.

Why Sugarmaples Get Along So Well

They share eleven personality traits that draw them to one another. Three are straightforward: warmth, natural curiosity, and a very high tolerance for other folks’ silly behavior. The other eight I’ve spent years unsuccessfully trying to articulate.
