MEMBERS ARE LIMITED TO THE CITY OF VANCOUVER ONLY (see reason why below).
MEMBERS MUST HAVE A CLEAR PHOTO OF THEIR FACE BEFORE JOINING (not a tiny distant one).
MEMBERS MUST USE THEIR REAL FIRST NAME.
MEMBERS MUST HAVE A LAST NAME OR LAST INITIAL ON THEIR PROFILE NAME BEFORE JOINING (you can use any initial you wish) since there are many with the same 1st name.
MEMBERS SHOULD NOT JOIN TO PROMOTE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES.....THIS IS COMPLETELY DISCOURAGED.
Meet intelligent, interesting fun-loving women of ANY age over 55 (50's, 60's, 70's, 80's etc.) for friendship, conversation, sharing ideas, laughs, and outings.
If your friends have moved away, if you are new in town, if you are single, widowed, divorced or married, and if you just feel a need for new friends and connections, then this is the place for you. If you are shy or hesitant, that's normal. Just jump right in and come one time and then you will wonder why you were ever tentative.
What is our purpose? Simply to make friends and build relationships.......everyone needs girlfriends! In our group, friendships are continually being made and strengthened.
Every member can host a meetup....in fact you are encouraged to do so and even expected to do so at least once while you are a member. This is how our meetup works......it is a co-operative and the organizer just oversees things so they run smoothly. It's really the members who keep the meetup vibrant!
Some of our meetups included: lunches & walks, tea & coffee, potlucks, museums, dinners, theatre, films, galleries, goal setting group, book clubs, parties, hiking, meditation, silent spiritual walks etc. etc.
Our Meetup consists of women who are super friendly, kind, compassionate, welcoming and non-judgmental. We are sensitive, thoughtful people. We want to see members from ALL areas of Vancouver: East Side, West Side, West End, South Side. We understand that we are more alike than we are different, no matter what area of Vancouver we come from. We come in a variety of ages, sizes, ethnicity, interests. We love POSITIVE people.
This is a private Meetup in that only members will see that you are a member and what you write on the site.
MEMBERS ARE LIMITED TO THE CITY OF VANCOUVER ONLY since we want to make friends with whom we can visit back and forth easily, spontaneously and within easy distance (my apologies to Richmond, Burnaby, Delta, Surrey, N. Van and W. Van). I have been lucky to make friends a few blocks away, but still enjoy my friends from the East Side. This is not snobbism........ we are not aiming for a huge membership and this policy is strictly enforced. Hopefully other groups like this will spring up in the other areas. Why not? Take a chance, even if you start with 10 members; that's all you need. Meet at a restaurant to begin. Good luck to you!
Making friends is our priority; conversations about products and services that you sell should not be the reason for joining our group, and members do not welcome this type of conversation unless it is just part of a friendly getting-to-know-you situation.
