Next Meetup

Scare someone - say hello!
"When I am old I shall wear purple -" or perhaps I'll just speak to strangers at the public library without introducing myself! It's time to reach out and make friends, don't you think? We are of an age where we've loved and lost and we're ready to love again, even if our affections now are more mild than exquisite, earth-shattering passion. "Friendship is the perfection of Love." These are words to live by. Come to the Biographies section of the Dayton Metro Library at the appointed time and look around for others who seem interested in finding someone to talk to. They may ( - or, may not! - ) be part of this group. Sometimes this group has a leader to shepherd new members together. Sometimes the members simply find one another until the leader shows up. If you expect to come, please RSVP so that others know to look for you. We are a casual, adventurous group of people in the AARP generation coming together for the purpose of expanding our tribes. This group just keeps attracting more and more members. Want to know new people? Show up and tell others your name. That's the first step in making a new friend.

What we're about

We are a friend-making group for active, mature people. The task of creating interesting activities may be better covered by leaders of other groups. I hope those interested in sky diving or hiking the Appalachian Trail will tell us about it when they get back, lol. For me, your fearless leader, the job of creating new friendships is challenge enough.

Our old friends have died or moved or no longer fit with our current situation. Now that we finally have enough free time to explore the world around us, we realize we have to create a whole new life, including a friend circle. With this group, we come together to support each others' efforts at creating new lives in this new chapter of our own personal history.

Who were we and what did we do back before other people's needs took over our lives?

What do we want from friendship now?

How do we integrate new people into our lives at this stage of the game?

Come reinvent yourself with us.
