Help support your MeetupChip in
Our group is a bunch of single parents, both moms and dads, who get together and do BOTH kid-outings together, and sometimes adult nights, where we get a babysitter and hang out as adults. I try to schedule a meet-up about once a month. The goal is to get out there with our kids, and, in the meantime, meet some other parents who are experiencing the challenges (and joys) of solo-parenting.
It is not intended to be a "dating" group -- although, of course, if that happens it's great -- it's more a way for us to bond about the unique experience of raising children on our own. I just don't want anyone to feel like they need to get all dolled up for our meet-ups!
Dads are particularly welcome! We have a really great group that includes dads, but the majority of us are moms. Usually it's about 5-6 moms and 1-2 dads. It would be great to get our meet-ups a little more balanced, so dads -- step up and join us!
Everyone really is very friendly and welcoming and it's become a cool little group. The parents are also not flakes at all, people actually show up. We have about 15 of us who have become a "core" group of regulars, and we always have at least a few new people every time. We have even gone on camping trips together, and we're about to go skiing together...It's really a great group!
I've narrowed it to Northeast LA so we're relatively close to each other, but anyone of course is welcome to join.
