...but don't be frightened!
It's group meetups, it's dating, it's neither.
Perhaps it's not always the easiest of things to seek out someone new or a new group of people, but we've put together some fun things that will make being more social less about clicking a "Like" button and more about learning and sharing.
The more things you do, the more positive feedback you'll get from Awkward Narhwal -- after all, it's a reflection of real life and not a collection of online statistics. You'll see your address book grow, see how many times you've met with people and your commonalities, get clues about dating matches, and develop credibility as a socialite.
Awkward Narwhal has many of the same features you'll find on other sites that introduce you to new people. We purposefully have left some out some things other sites offer like lots and lots of profile details and other information that has nothing to do with you getting to know people.
This is where Awkward Narwhal really shines. We'll help you organize a group for whatever activity and that's where the fun begins. Be it a breakfast club or a night on the town, we've created some really cool things to put your event together and make it more fun.
Should you choose (it's optional) to create dating preferences, you can then find out how many matches you have attending a particular event. After you've attended a few events with your matches you get to learn more about them.
Awkward Narwhal members get to see how their relationships with new friends evolve over time and get to see the "fun factor" of the events they check out. The fun factor is a calculation of various social factors about the attendees broken down and displayed in a neat-o way so you have an idea about what the make-up of the event attendees will be.
