Skip the Small Talk at Aeronaut: NOW AN ONLINE EVENT!
Do you want some meaningful human connection without leaving the house? Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, this event will now be online! It will be facilitated almost identically to a normal Skip the Small Talk, using video chatting software. The first few we've hosted have gone surprisingly smoothly and we've gotten a lot of great feedback from people who have gone!
We will *actually* start on time for this (no, really!), so please arrive early and make sure you are on the website (we'll send you the link) right at 12:30 pm!
Do you wish you could have more of the kinds of conversations you have late at night where for some reason, you feel safe talking about the things you actually care about?
Bring your friends (or come by yourself) and spend your Sunday afternoon at an event where you know everyone else is there for the same reason.
We'll be offering cards with "big talk" conversational questions on them to get you started, and we'll have lots of structure to make sure that you actually talk to people and that it's not awkward. Not feeling like answering a particular question? No worries, we'll have plenty to choose from, like, "When are you the happiest?" and, "If you were going to become close friends with me, what would I need to know about you?" We'll give you ground rules to make sure you feel comfortable and safe sharing as much of yourself as possible while still feeling in complete control of how much you divulge. Want more info?

Please do your best to arrive a couple minutes before 12:30 pm if you haven't been to one of these before so you don't miss the intro, but feel free to come late if you need to-- you'll still be able to participate just fine! If you've come to an online Skip the Small Talk before and would rather skip the intro, feel free to come at 12:40 pm.
