This is a group for single Dads in the Greater Philly area looking to get out and meet some other guys in a similar situation.  I am a separated and soon-to-be-divorced Dad and I have realized that there is a need for a group where guys can get together, hang out, and support one another.   Let's face it, women do this a lot better and far more naturally than men do.   I am fascinated by that and don't quite understand why men can't do the same.   I might be going out on a limb here, but I am willing to bet there are other Dads feeling the same way.  It also would be nice to have a place for those Dads that have young kids that want to get together so their kids can play together while the Dads chat.

We will have the traditional classic male activities like getting together to drink beer at the local pub and watch football quite often, but I am really looking to expand the horizon a little.  How about golf outings and Phillies games?  Skiing? Hiking? I am open to suggestions and want to make this club different from all the rest that are out there on Meetup.  There are plenty of other groups who are centered around guys drinking beer, watching sports, and mingling (or perhaps, more accurately, trying to mingle?!) with women! While these activities are important and certainly endorsed by the Greater Philly Single Dads' Social Club, I am striving to make it more than just that.  Anybody can do that!

To that end, I want to also mention that we intend to have activities that involve the kids from time to time and we will attempt to cross-partner with other groups in the area to help extend our scope.  I am a member of several other Meetup groups in the area and I think they would certainly support a club with our mission.

If you're a single Dad in the Greater Philly area, we hope to meet you one day.  Come on out!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
