Beeminding social stuff?

Hi folks! It seems like every year we have one of these posts, but how are folks beeminding social stuff these days? What are the caveats? What works super well for you?

I never even clicked through on any of these before, but now I work from home 100%, I’m considering it!

I keep this pretty general: I have a spend time with friends goal of four times a week, with each occasion being time spent with a distinct friend/group of friends (so this can be >1 in one day).

I’m a massive introvert so I really needed to create a goal that would help prevent isolation. But since I started dating a massive extrovert it has been much easier to meet this goal without much preparation or planning, and thankfully I have permission to opt out of joint social events when I need more time alone.

Hu, I don’t have any goal like this and no need (so far). Two things: I’m in a chat group with my best friends and it’s a very fun and active group with basically 0 noise.
Then some other friend and me meet like maybe once every two weeks and cook stuff together. But we’re also in a chat and talk daily.
And then I’m also a gamer and love playing co-op video games with my friends online. And while doing that we talk in voice chat about anything really. And it’s always super fun.

And that does the trick for me. I dunno. This has been working great for me for many years now. Can recommend!

I guess if you wanted you could turn that into beeminder-y goals. So for those who want some inspiration on this, maybe this helps :slight_smile:
