Kathy Ramundt Posted over 2 years ago How do you build offline meaningful social connections? I have found one big problem is busy schedules. In my family we refer to planning get togethers as 'herding cats'. What has worked in the past for me is to get a regular meeting time on the calendar, and whoever is available gets together, rather than trying to find a pick a time that works for everyone. Otherwise one week becomes two weeks, becomes a month...and you've lost the connection.
