My first Ottawa Meet and Greet

Well, I finally had the courage and balls to attend the Ottawa Meet and Greet last Friday (without wifey, she was at work). It wasn't what I expected, but that can also be a good thing...

I gotta say that I now understand why new folks can feel intimidatedand nervous when going to a M&G for the first time...You get there, you know absolutely no one and you're looking for a balloon in a bar...Yeah, you fel like you stand out and everyone is looking at you (ok, those are false illusions, but your mind is going 1000 miles a minute, so you dont know any better). Luckily, the host and hostess knew what I looked like (Danny from CSI, right? lol) and I quickly joined them at the table.

Now before I go further, here's a tip/suggestion to future "recruits"...If you go to a M&G, dont be shy. If you see the balloon, don't hesitate to come say hi to the group. Walking around, checking the group out and not coming over probably does make you stick out. You might stick out, but we can't come get you...we dont know who YOU are (or if you're there for the M&G or not).

Now for the people there...Although this apparently was a very small turnout (only 6 people there, which apparently is not a lot), I gotta say that you guys were the most fun, down to earth people I've had the pleasure of knowing in a long time. You guys are open, fun (and people around us are fun too...remember Kitty? lmao) and easy to talk to.

Honestly, I never saw the time go by... I truly wished it could have gone on for hours (it might have?)

So hopefully, next time (I go to a M&G), I'll be seeing more of you out there. Till then, give me your feedback and comments!

Ciao peeps!

Thanks for this post, I just attended my first meet and greet as well. Wish I read this before hand, might have settled my nerves a bit. Hoping by the next one I will not be as shy, the hosts were great at making me feel welcome.
