What we're about

My vision for this group is for us all to get out of our homes where we often feel lonely and meet like minded people, connect and have fun. This is a social networking group where you can develop friendships and more. Let’s face it the bar scene is not the best environment to meet someone. It’s usually loud and not always a natural or organic way to connect. Anyone I meet over 50 is telling me that they want to connect on a deeper, more heart-felt level, rather than the superficial conversations about work, etc.

We will gather at restaurants and private homes to share a meal. We’ll play some musical chairs at the restaurant so that we will have the opportunity to meet everyone in the group. We’ll plan hikes, karaoke, game’s nights and go out to listen to music and even dance! :-) There will also be some mini workshops offered called Singles Soirees which will consist of ice-breakers and other connecting exercises.

I was pleasantly surprised how connected I felt to the other singles. Tree has a way of establishing safety and connection in a group of strangers and was able to provide that online as well. I felt less nervous than in person perhaps because I was in my own environment. I didn’t realize how much I needed connection with others and after the event I felt fairly calm.” ---Joe V.
