You are super excited about finding out you are pregnant, or you have just had a baby. Maybe you love collecting old album record covers , you play dungeon and dragons. When you start telling your friends or family about what interests you -a film of glaze veils over the eyes, if you could peer into their ear, you would see the wax build up in epic proportions the minute you start talking about your interests.
A Stammtisch (German for “regulars’ table”, [ˈʃtamtɪʃ]) is an informal group meeting held on a regular basis, and also the usually large, often round table around which the group meets. A Stammtisch is not a structured meeting, but rather a friendly get-together
It’s not that your friends and family don’t love you any less but the ‘rat race’ that is life can leave a person feeling too drained to listen to your interest with their full attention . They may even think you are a bit weird. Well, who needs them. You need to speak with kindred souls. In Germany there are regular groups set up for strangers with a common interest to meet up and Gespräch -( ‘talk’ in German).
In Germany friends, colleagues and strangers meet up to to have a bit of a natter/chat, laugh and to jolt new connections; and to get new and original perspectives.
People regularly meet up wherever and when ever, in places and get to discuss all nature of topics and know that other people will reciprocate. Think of any topic that comes to mind and there will more than likely be a group for it. These strangers never stay strange for long.
The secret to some kind of happiness is, it so enlightening to share our experiences and desires and interests and connect with others. It is good to bond with others. We do this a lot in the blogging world which is awesome; but sometimes we need to get out into the real world ( yes, we do). Why don’t you ring up a few friends ask them to ring up a few of their friends, find a spot to meet and the conversation will be thriving by the time the first drink is finished.
