Have you noticed that clubs and groups tend to be for the under-40 group? Well, you don't stop wanting to have a good time just because you hit 40, right?! That's what this meetup group is about. We can share similar experiences based on age alone and nod understandingly, appreciatingly even when sharing stories of things that have happened to us. It's that kindred sense of commonality that helps us, we too become an instant 'ear' and supporter.
The focus is for connectedness with others, in our age group or older. To share interests in small group settings that are more intimate and geared to the self such as healthy activities, cooking, traveling, the arts, community outreach, reading for book clubs, dining out, game nights, movies, wine-tasting and yes, even shopping! This is not about going to the bars, clubs, etc. Once in a while, it's fun to do a "rah rah" huge group event but the mission of this group is to cultivate genuine friendships that are based on shared interests during meetups on a smaller scale so that everyone has a chance to participate and really get to know each other.
While this is a group just for women, there may be meet-up opportunities for inclusion of men ('couples'game nights, dining) or children (events around town or the park).
I'm glad that you have decided to join us- looking forward to meeting all of you and for those that have been here, thank you!! You are all awesome. Don't forget that! :)
