Families

Postby xandersdad1 » Mon, 27 Aug 2012 9:58 am

All these topics seem to be singles looking for friends. Why isn't there a consolidated location for the family oriented user to locate like-minded families? When I go out to meet friends, I would prefer to bring my family to meet up with theirs. The day to day life of Singapore already takes up so much time so family time and friendly bonding at the same time is a double benefit.

We simply don't have enough of them, save those parents wanting to meet other parents with similarly aged children for playdates and stuff.

Feel free to invite people, though.

You can try here. I assume if they want playdates for their kids, they also want to get to know their parents as well.

Not really looking for playdates. We are looking for families that we can call friends, but thank you for the help.

How old are your kids? Maybe that information would be a good start, I know that families meeting may have different requirements depending on this kind of information, for instance, you wouldn't take a 15 year old to Pollywogs in East Coast and likewise you wouldn't take a 4 year old paintballing.
