Duckling Q&A’s

Questions from Ducklings just coming out of their shell.

Are you a lifestyle group?

No, we aren’t. We are right in the middle without crossing the line. Think somewhere between Rotary Club and those crazy swingers groups. We are a fun, happy, saucy, community group. We are the group that kicks off our heels and dances bare feet, waving our hands in the air wherever we go. And as we say, trying new things while holding other Duckling’s hands makes it less scary, so our activities run from very mild to very sexy. Members are free to participate in whatever event suits them best.

Would you consider yourself a dating club?

Half of our members are single. And whenever singles are out in safe and happy places meeting each other, connections occur. In fact, we’ve had over 130 love matches since our debut in 2013. And we are thrilled for them!

But we are not a dating club.

Do members peruse profiles and send emails asking for dates? Outside of Duckling Dating, absolutely not! Randomly hitting on fellow member’s meet-up profiles will get you tossed from the group. Member safety is a cornerstone of our club. We really do emphasize sexy but safe.

I’m nervous. How do I get started?

We recommend attending a Meet and Greet event, which we hold multiple times a year. You are greeted warmly by Sue or a Super Duck (an identified Duckling Ambassador) who will introduce you to others, answer any questions and try to ease your mind. All meet and greets start with a fun, group ice-breaker (and you aren’t singled out.) Then we talk about the club, its objectives and a few of its rules. By the end of the night you will feel like you’ve known us forever.

What if I get uncomfortable during an event?

If something is wrong or you need some support, seek out a Super Duck (an identified Duckling Ambassador.) Super Ducks are identified by various means depending on the event. They will intervene on your behalf. Our rules work to enforce safe, friendly, non-aggressive and drama-free outings.

How many events do you have?

We aim for seven Meet and Greets, and 20 group events annually for your nominal (less than a tank of gas) membership fee. 

What is your refund policy?

We are a volunteer-run group and work very hard to keep up with all the correspondence. Changing your mind a few days before an event is hard on us. As of October 2021, we have established the following policy:

We ONLY issue credits for event cancellations to be used for a future event. Credits are only available when we are notified 72 hours before an evening event, and 7 days before a major (more than one night) event. Otherwise, we are likely sold out and cannot refund or credit you any closer to the event.

Why should I be a Duckling?

Because we are awesome! We host events that no one else holds. In our opinion (and that of our membership that grows exponentially every day), we are the sexiest, safest and — dare we say — coolest group in town.
