There is no better feeling than when old friends meet new friends.
I love it when these worlds collide, the feeling you experience when the world shrinks just a little bit.
In fact, I wish it happened more often.
Unfortunately, work and other responsibilities get in the way.
Despite this inconvenience, I want to make more of an effort to facilitate these types of experiences, both for myself and others.
I wonder what type of format would work best. Dinner? Drinks? Some sort of shared activity or interest? These all work, but there are already plenty of options like these out there.
Personally, I would like to connect people using shared ideas and/or creative projects. This would give others the chance to flex their creative muscles a little more while meeting others at the same time.
As someone who values shared experiences, I always look for ways to include others as much as possible, even if I don't know a group of people.
After all, strangers are just friends you haven't made yet.
