NYC Social Sports: Friends In The City @NYCSOCIALSPORTS

When I moved to NYC 2 years ago I was newly single. I had a job, but other than that I basically knew NO ONE in the city.

I learned that being a single woman in New York City meant that I could easily rack up dates (one for every meal if I wanted!), it was REALLY difficult to establish a network of lady friends. Going out alone made me feel lecherous at best, and “prey” on a bad night. I even considered reaching out to women on internet dating sites and asking them to be my friend.

It was a low time, friends.

SO…the turn around point was last fall. I signed up for a co-ed social sports league with NYC Social Sports. We played soccer every Friday night for 2 months. Besides getting some great exercise (my first time in years), I got to chat with non predatorial lady friends on the sidelines, and at the post-game celebration.

On Halloween, one team member even made us Ninja Turtle costumes. Hrrm ok!

I made an especially awesome friend named Ayo who lives in my neighborhood, and is awesome.

She was also a great wingwoman at the after game social events. We have danced Gangnam Style all the way down Atlantic Avenue, ya’ll.

Bonus, Ayo started NYC Beach Bus, woohoo!

And this summer I played soccer at Brooklyn Bridge Park with a fun group, on a beautiful field!942918_10201466893774552_1927337903_nGirl looka dat body!

    I don’t want to ring my own bell, but I tweeted about a great article I read: https://twitter.com/hughlester/status/368106108906270720 Too bad I’m a little short of followers.

    Seriously, excellent personal interest piece. I hope my experience will be as good with Ultimate starting in September. I’d also enjoy dodgeball.
