What is AdventurousBug?
We equip women with the tools necessary to expand their world through the creation of events, travel, blogs and forums by utilizing social media. Our powerful, user-friendly website enables members to easily organize and join a diverse range of exciting adventures. AdventurousBug has two levels of membership; our Explorer Membership is free but limited, it includes such things as blogs and forums, our Adventurous Membership gives you full access to our site which includes events, travel, connecting with members, add and request friendships, blogs, forums, groups, as well as many other great features with a minimal monthly cost.
Why should I join?
Women are social creatures by nature. Our members have control over what activities to post or to join. You can participate in an activity you are familiar with like walks, shopping, wine tasting, dinners out on the town or try something new like sailing, learning to dance, hiking, starting a book club and so on. It is a great way to build your adventurous network, make new friends and expand your interests.
Is this a singles group or dating site?
Why women only?
We at AdventurousBug say, “Why Not”. We believe that women deserve their own space and supportive community.

We believe you deserve it.
