"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one. --C.S. Lewis
Separating? Divorced? Somewhere in between? It's a confusing and crazy place we find ourselves in. Come on out, have a good laugh...at your ex, each other, and yourself! But most importantly, it is a opportunity to discover that you are not alone and that you are going to be OK.
The food at Brio is all simply prepared using the finest and freshest ingredients. Brio will be extending their "Tuscan Tasters" appetizers to us for just $2.95 each and they are fantastic.
Live Well!</p>

    Very friendly group. People seem to enjoy themselves. As a first time visitor was a little lost at first, you might want to let first time folks know how it works before they arrive.

    Hello! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone! My divorce was final today so I had a private celebration with PF Chang and an episode of The Good Wife. Ironic - and hilarious - at the same time. :) I have a class until 8 tomorrow night. How long do these gatherings last? Thanks! - Tami

      Congrat? Lol! I think some of us will still be hanging around til 9 or 9:30. Depends on the crowd and how well we like each other! LOL! I think when I first went, I was there til 10pm. I am still friends with the first 5 people I met there back on Sept 18, 2012. That was my very first meetup and things have never been the same. In a good sense! Hope to met you tomorrow!

    So this is my first one to attend and I have been separated for almost one year. So it only took me a year to get up the nerve.

    I became a member of this group three years ago. It really helped me to get to know people who were going through or had gone through the same pain that I was experiencing. I learned how to deal with the loss of my marriage and my self esteem. I saw first hand that you really can survive this and maybe even be better off than you were when you were married. I am thankful for the opportunity to have grown so much through this group and Divorce Care Groups. I hope that all of the members will enjoy the same "new attitude" that I have developed.

    Hello Everyone! First, thank-you, Mr. Cline for giving me the honor to help host this meetup. This meetup group has a very special place in my heart. I stepped out of my comfort zone and attended my first support group back in Sept 2012, when I separated from my hubby of 21 years. That night was a godsent to me as it opened many wonderful doors to me. Too much details to share here but hope to share that and looking toward hearing your stories too. For those sitting on the fence of whether to come or not...COME! Take that leap of faith as I had...you will be blessed. Sometimes life is about who we let into my lives...a handful of people I've met at my very first meetup...have profoundly changed my life...this is why I want to host this meetup....to "give" back and to say thank-you. The people you will meet will be your new lifetime friends to support, love, care, cry, laugh, and cheer you on from this moment on. I found that. I know you will too. A new friend awaits you! Join us

      Wow!!! Tom...I had no idea my dance partner was so amazing! What you wrote really touched my heart! I am so looking toward getting to know more about you. I love how you, Tom and Ted are reaching out to help others in the healing process. Thank-you for sharing and for contributing to this great group.

      Bill....my dear friend...thank-you for the sweet, kind, and loving words about me. You, Lisa, Deb etc. made me who I am today....full of life, love, and joy in my heart. We are going to set this meetup on FIRE!! I got great plans for the group. Already in talks with a divorce attorney who will come out in April for a Q&A with the group. My plan is to make this support group fun and upbeat...yet very informative. This Event Planner is just getting started! LOL!
