Re: Wife joined meetup.com?
Thank God for Meetup.com! Seriously, it's been a real life saver for my wife. She moved her to NYC after the marriage and since it takes her much longer to make friends than it does me, she was struggling for awhile. She has far fewer friends than I do, and almost none of them live here in the city. My wife and I have very different interests and are drawn often to very different kinds of people. She does meet ups from time to time and it's a great way for her to get out and about with like minded people and do the things that I have no interest in. She's met two of her best NY girls via meet ups.
Having said that I don't get it being used just for bars and clubs. The meet ups here in NYC cover a near endless amount of activities. Is it different there or is your wife just drawn to bars/clubs? Would you have a problem if she was into, for example, the culinary arts and did a meet up at a cooking and tasting class? Or is it strictly a club/bar thing? Did you know that she enjoyed bars/clubbing before marriage?
Also the fact that she wouldn't tell you where she was going is enormous. I can't even imagine my wife NOT telling me that basic info, for safety purposes alone, never mind out of pure respect. When my wife goes to a meet up I don't have to request said information, she volunteers it, when she's leaving the place, as well as the blow by blow happenings of the meet up after the fact.
But good luck trying to tell her that she shouldn't do meet ups at all because you have a problem with the entire concept. It's one thing to express displeasure about specific kinds of meet ups, another entirely to tell a grown ass woman that she can't go to a meet up because you just don't "get" the concept.
