What is the age range of members?

Members are mainly in their mid 20’s to mid 40’s. However we do have many people in their 50’s.

What is the main focus of your group?

It is our goal to plan fun and interesting activities in and around the city that appeal to people who are looking to get out and enjoy life, make friends, learn, explore and connect. We try to keep the attitude level low and the event quality high. If you are new to the city or a native New Yorker, single, coupled, looking to make friends, network, interested in learning or trying something new or looking for a connection, we probably have something on the calendar just for you!

Is New York Social Network better than other social groups

We can’t tell you that NYSN is better or worse than other groups, it really depends on what you are looking for. We have outlasted dozens of groups since we began in 2004 because of the quality and service we provide. Unlike many groups on MeetUp.com NYSN is our full time focus, we are here to provide a quality product at an affordable price and that is all we do. We encourage you to check out all the opportunities and stick with what best suits your needs.

Can I belong to more than one group?

You bet! In fact we encourage it especially since other groups may offer things we don’t. In fact we actually run many “partner” events with other groups so you get to meet even more people. We have some links to other groups on our Partners page.

Is NYSN a singles group?

NYSN events are mainly geared to professionals who want to get out and enjoy life with other fun people. We have singles, couples and groups of friends coming out to our events who all get along great! The focus is on the activities, socializing, networking, fun, learning and adventure. Although we have had many love connections with members over the years, please do not make that the primary reason to come out, It adds too much pressure! Just come out and have fun!

What is the definition of “Professional”?

That could be a debate for all ages! We define “Professional” as someone who is career minded and is currently employed or seeking employment in professions that offer growth and stability both personally and professionally. Again, most of our members fall into the 20’s-40’s age range If you are not sure what “professional” means or whether you fall into that category, you may want to explore other groups.

What is the male to female ratio of your group?

It’s a fact that New York City has several times as many single women than single men between the ages of 25-40. Women are also more likely to join up for organized activities. As a result most groups like NYSN have more women than men as members. (Gentlemen, please read that last line again!) We do our best to manage the ratio of men and women at events to make it more fun for everyone. NYSN is more about networking, hanging out, having fun, making friends and trying new things. If you get hung up on ratios, how many and who is coming, this group may not be for you.

How much does it cost to join?

It is free to join NYSN. If you plan to come out often you may consider becoming a Lifetime VIP member for $200
