I know other ladies are out there, I just couldn't seem to find the right group to connect with ladies who are full time residents in their 50s to develop new and lasting friendships with. I love this area, but the missing link in 'paradise' is a circle of girlfriends, that is why I started this group. I want to keep the group small to enable us to truly develop friendships and connect within our local community. The goal is that all members live within 10 - 15 minutes of each other to truly foster friendship in the Bonita Springs, Estero, North Naples area. This enables us to have quick get togethers without a lot of driving, especially during season. Whether you work full- or part-time, are retired, single or married, still have children at home or are an empty-nester, like me, I am looking to connect with all in the area. However, you must be a full-time resident in the area. My goal is to have standing gatherings (meet for coffee & explore the Farmers Market during season, regular Happy Hour events, dinners to explore local restaurants with spouse/date/significant other, bunco, movie night, beach walks, biking, kayaking, crafts, volunteer in the community, learn something new, explore Southwest Florida) the list of activities is only limited by members commitment to be involved and be a friend. It was so easy when we were young, our mothers usually arranged all our play dates and we were entrenched in our community through school/religious affiliations/ sports AND neighborhoods with full-time residents. If this sounds like the right group for you, I look forward to meeting you whether you are active or sedentary, fit or flab, I want this to be an accepting not pretentious group. All profiles MUST include a current photo of you, not your pets, kids/grandkids, we want to know about you.
