New membership-only singles club opening in Fort Wayne

Organic Meets is at the historic home at 533 West Washington Blvd.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A new membership-only singles meeting house is opening Friday at the historic home at 533 West Washington Blvd. Organic Meets is an inclusive, non-judgmental, singles club where the mantra is “because chemistry can only happen in person.”

Sherri Albrecht developed Organic Meets after bad experiences using online dating.

“[My date] misrepresented his age, his income and he lived with his mother and none of those were an issue, but it was the lying about them that was the issue for me,” she said.

That’s when she thought up Organic Meets, a members-only single club.

“Everyone I met doing online dating said they just wanted to meet someone through friends, at a social engagement, or that type of thing,” Albrecht said. “So, I thought why is that not a thing? Why isn’t there a place where everyone’s single?”

The club will host weekly house parties with music, Craft beer, wine and small plates. There will also be weekly yoga and meditation classes. Members can also look forward to mindful meeting groups, writers, book clubs, music jams and other synergistic meets.

Memberships are purchased in three month increments with the first quarter costing $145.

The public open house is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 13. The members-only grand opening is Oct. 31. There will also be a free cocktail party for singles at some point this month.
