We are the Charming Chicks. If you are in your 30s to 50s and are looking for girlfriends this is YOUR group! We are about friendship, fun, adventure, and more. Here you will always feel welcome, meet new girlfriends, and have fun doing it! Events will include exciting adventures like murder mystery dinners and day trips to historic mansions and gardens as well as low key events like cozy house parties and game nights. Creating friendships is not always easy especially as we get older. However, in our group we set up environments to make the process exciting and less taxing. Join us on this odyssey of exploration that will lead to true and lasting friendships.
We are NOT about: cliques, gossip, negativity, judgment, or toxicity. We ARE about: Being charming chicks that create positive environments!! Respect is key. This includes participating in events (Friendship does't happen in a vacuum) showing up for events when you RSVP and changing your RSVP to "not going" 24 hours in advance if you cannot make it to an event. No shows will be removed from the group as this is extremely un-charming behavior. IMPORTANT: A recognizable RECENT picture of yourself and first name are required to join for safety and to help identify each other at public venues.
Please note that we do run SMALL groups so that real friendships can be made. It's the quality of the time not the size of the group. We believe that smaller groups foster true connections and are less intimidating to newcomers. Please join the waitlist if an event is full as we often get cancellations. We will have events in different parts of the DC metro area including Virgina, Maryland and DC. Locations are more central to Maryland at this time including Annapolis, Bowie, Greenbelt, Bethesda, Columbia, Rockville and others in addition to the Silver Spring area. Day trip locations may include Baltimore, Delaware, and others. This group is for anyone willing to meet in the locations events take place in. We are not a group just for women in Silver Spring.
