A few weeks ago, our contributor Abby wrote an incredible post that left us feeling inspired – Dating Other Moms: From Drop off to Play Dates. In her post, she details exactly the anxiety, nervousness, and awkwardness that comes from trying to “Date” other moms while you’re looking for a new group of friends in this stage of motherhood.
Am I looking desperate? Do I ask for her number? Do I “Friend” her on Facebook? How often do I comment? I don’t want to come on too strong…. But she seems REALLY cute and nice and fun… and I want to be friends outside of the hallway at Mother’s Day Out!
The response from our audience wasn’t surprising as we’ve all been there…some of us are still there! And that’s when we had an idea!
Let’s help fight the awkwardness (if even just a little) and make it a little easier to help you meet your new bestie with “Mommy Speed Dating!”
Who :: all Dallas-Fort Worth moms
What :: Join Dallas Moms Blog for a one-of-a-kind Moms Night Out event at Lakewood Brewing.
Why :: Whether you’re new the area, new to Motherhood, or just love meeting new people, this event is for you! We’ll spend the evening enjoying a fun, memorable night out away from the kids with shopping vendors, food, frosty beverages from Lakewood Brewing, and a chance to find your new Mommy BFF. During the evening, there will be multiple opportunities to casually meet moms from your area and discuss common interests. But of course, it wouldn’t be a Mommy Speed Dating event without a little Speed Dating!
This will be a thoughtfully planned, intentional activity during a portion of the evening to help moms discover a mom or two (in your area of town) that you could see developing a friendship with — or even just asking over for a playdate!
Already found your village? Bring your girlfriends and help us cheer on those who are looking for theirs. Be a friendly face, conversation starter, or just enjoy the night at a private Lakewood Brewing event with friends!
When :: June 30, 2016 from 7:00pm-9:00pm (Doors will open at 6:30pm for those who want to escape a little early!)
