Why does GirlFriendCircles charge for membership?
Lots of good reasons!
- Quality of Members: We want to make sure we only attract quality women who
value friendship and are willing to invest in it with time and money.
- Quality of our Community: We want to ensure we maintain a current community
where we minimize having inactive members. This way you know everyone in the system
is still open to new friendships or they won’t be here anymore.
- Quality of Brand: We want to ensure that we have the resources to be pouring
back into the community through function enhancements, design updates, recruitment
and overhead expenses.
- Quality of Experience: By charging for this service (less than the price
of gym membership and way more fun!) we ensure that we don’t fill your screen with
advertising or gimmicks!
- Quality of Life: And lastly, but not much in life is more important than
our friends so it’s worth our value! This is an area we believe is so important
that many of our members tell us later that they’d gladly have paid more for what
they received. We invite you use this investment as a way to remind yourself how
much this matters to you and that you’re willing to value the process.
Let's first see if we're in your area!
If we cannot match you right now
we'll give you two years completely free, with hopes that your area will keep on
If we can match you right away
we hope you'll become a member so we can start introducing you to new friends!
Four ways that we look forward to introducing you to new friends:
To make it as easy and fun as possible, we will connect you within two weeks to
a group of 3-5 new girlfriends! GirlFriendCircles matches the candidates, schedules
a get-together in a local cafe at a time that is convenient to your schedule and
provides conversation starters to help everyone get to know each other in meaningful
ways. Find the friends you connect with in a safe and fun group experience where
you go past the small talk and get to know people in ways that enhance your life.
Seven reasons our members love us:
- We build friendships in small groups. Smaill talk, hand shaking,
and working a crowd is not our cup of tea. Nor is writing back-and-forth in cyberspace
but never actually meeting what we want. Neither is trying to hold an awkward conversation
with a stranger as though we're on a date. So we meet each other in small groups
so we can determine who we connect with best!
- We provide structure. In our ConnectingCircles we have a popular
process where you're intentionally sharing fun but easy questions with each other
so you're not at risk of any one person doing all the talking or of trying to think
up conversation starters. We've got you covered so that you leave feeling known
and have a good sense of each other!
- We give you all control. Some social clubs are all about one person
planning all the events - this is not one of them. Our community is like a co-op
and we think we're much stronger because we have so many different interests when
we open it up to everyone! All girlfriends can host any events you want. You can
connect with anyone you want, whenever you want. You can attend as much or as little
as you want. You control your process.
- We value depth. Our goal isn't just for you to meet new people
— we want you to actually create friendships that last! We expect our members to
be consistent with each other so that a real friendship can form and we'll do all
we can to help ensure that the process is meaningful and fun.
- We are way fun. We meet in ConnectingCircles at different cafes
around the city so you get to try out new places, plus all the events listed are
from the other women in the community so you're bound to be exposed to great events
and opportunities you wouldn't have known about otherwise.
- We attract high caliber women. Because we charge a nominal fee
(way cheaper than dating sites and health clubs!) we help weed out those who don't
really value the importance of friendship. The women who join have had good girlfriends
in their lives and know the worth of developing local friendships!
- We are super effective. Over 92% of everyone who has gotten involved
has reported finding at least 3 potential friends. It's a bit like anything in life
(i.e. Job hunting, house searching, dating) where sometimes you have to attend more
than one Circle to find your group of friends, but we offer so many options and
attract such awesome women that if this is important to you — it will work.
