It is high time to explain what ‘I am SGL Community’ is.
So starting from the basics, it is a community of single people, of course. And it covers all of them, those who are shy and find getting to know new people as a real pain in the ass (ups ;) ) and those for whom getting a new friend is just a piece of cake. ‘I am SGL’ Foundation wants to bring them all together by organizing SGLs meetings, introducing distinctive sign (I am SGL) which will make easier for others to see ‘one of us’ in the surrounding crowd and by giving an application which will help you find other SGLs in your neighborhood.
The aim of the Foundation is not to be another dating site but to create a community in which sinlges can meet other people in the real life who has similar lifestyle. It does not mean that you cannot make friends with couples, of course you can. But be honest, will your very best friend with a husband and two small children have time to meet you for a coffee on a Thursday evening, just like that without careful preplanning – probably not. Or will your just-to-be-married friend leave his fiancée and go for a month hiking in New Zealand, as you always planned. Maybe. If he is not that sure about this marriage.
What we propose is to join our community and who knows how your life will change. Being a single is a lifestyle, in the same way as being married, or being a parent. And, I will say this over and over again it is not something you should be ashamed of. Have you ever met a parent who is ashamed of this fact? It is your way of living today. It has some drawbacks and some benefits as all kinds of living. We as a Foundation want to focus on the positive sites, for example the fact that you have more time to meet new people on awesome meetings organized for SGLs ;).
