Discussion article for the meetup : Atlanta Lesswrong's May Meetup: The Rationality of Social Relationships, Friendship, Love, and Family.

WHEN: 17 May 2013 07:00:00PM (-0400)

WHERE: 2388 Lawrenceville Hwy. Apt L. Decatur, GA 30033

We’ve been chipping away at the rationality of happiness, so let’s narrow in on one of the most influential components of happiness: social relationships, both platonic and romantic. Agenda:

  • Introductions, and meet and greet for new members.

  • Mini-presentations. Anyone is invited to present on a topic of their choice related to this month’s theme.

  • Discussions. We’ll start with a large group discussion and break into smaller groups as needed.

  • Games! Because games are fun, and build good social relationships. :-)

Recommended (but not required) reading: http://lesswrong.com/lw/70u/rationality_lessons_learned_from_irrational/ http://lesswrong.com/lw/63i/rational_romantic_relationships_part_1/

If you don’t get a chance to read these, don’t worry! We will set aside 10 minutes at the meeting to read the articles before discussion.

I would very much like to attend this, having never attended a meetup before. However, I am currently a minor who lacks transportation ability and have had little luck convincing my guardians to drive me to it. Is there anybody who is attending and is coming from the Birmingham, AL area who would be willing to drive me? I am willing to pay for the service.

Raiden, let's talk on IM and see if we can figure out a way to get you there. I'm not sure we have any members coming from AL, but there may be bus options we can explore. IM me on gchat at amidstawoken@gmail.com. -Katie
