TV shows like Broad City and Playing House make the case for the importance and depth of platonic relationships. Contact the author of this article or email tips dcist.

The whole "it's not you, it's me. You could cut costs by removing coffee or by using existing children's programming supplies for the card-making station. My goal was achieved:

I prepared for an odd number of attendees by creating one trio match station. Place a gold star marker at one seat and arrows in front of every other seat to show participants where to move. It's physical in the sense that people keep moving and the actual movement is a source of laughter, too. Choosing where to sit feels a little like finding a spot to eat lunch on the first day of school. The one question to shy away from asking is what they hope to attain from attending the session. The way to get around this problem is to have one person sit in the same seat for the entire process, while everyone else shifts one seat over and ropes around the tables. She's about to tell me more, but it's time to switch.

Question 1/3:

You have two minutes to gab with the person across from you, and then you move down the line to the next potential pal. Participants should move from person to person until they have met half of the people in the room. The idea is that you don't have to suffer through drinks or dinner with someone when you don't feel the spark, and you can meet lots of people in one fell swoop.

In that case, you then ask participants numbered one to introduce themselves to a two sitting kitty corner from them, and so on until all of the ones and twos have had a chance to meet.

As often happens at events with strangers, I find myself asking question after question. The one thing I would do differently is to leave more space between the tables. But I don't, and she directs me to the basement with a smile. She says she would get emails about their younger adult book club, and "the subtext was 'I want friends. They then have two minutes to learn about their team building partner.
