The goal of this group is to get young widowed people together in the Northern Virginia, Maryland, and DC metro area. We talk, laugh, cry, and support each other as we navigate our new lives.

Answers to our most commonly asked questions:

Is this a dating group?

NO. This is not a dating group, and the organizers are dedicated to keeping it a safe place for the newly grieving. Any members who make others feel uncomfortable or initiate communication with members they have not met in person are banned from the group and reported to meetup.com. That said, we celebrate the friendships and romantic relationships that begin at our events.

Am I too old for this group?

We don't really ever turn anyone down based on age. Our informal cut-off is 55, give or take. Join the group, come to a couple events, and see if it works for you.

We weren't married. Is that OK?

Of course. Married, not married, together for 30 years, together for three months--if you lost your partner, as far as we're concerned, you are widowed. If you were not together anymore, your grief is absolutely valid and you are no less deserving of support. However, this is probably not the place for you.

We're 510 widowed people

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
