Early evening meet up in quiet pub!

Hi. Im trying to organise a Birmingham meet up. Ive been on this site a few weeks now and cant seem to find anything getting people together. Im thinking around 27th-31st July 2015 at about 7:00pm But this can be deceided with people interested in attending. Looking at meeting somewhere in Birmingham to suit those interested for a drink, bite to eat and most of all friendly chat. I dont have friends who know what its like to have depression and all that come with it. I wonder if the reason friends dont stay in touch is because they dont want to or cant understand so thought i wud try to make some more like minded friends. If u fancy making like minded friends in Birmingham who u can be urself around please get in touch and we can try and sort something out ☺

Sorry, there are no locations to map
