The goal of this meetup is not the usual divorce/separation support, where the main purpose is to share your experiences and work through the grief of the end of the relationship. This may of course naturally occur, but this is more of a hands-on group. Many of us who are divorced or separated have to deal with new realities, such as making do with the money available now, being solely responsible for all decisions, keeping the boat afloat... There may be some skills that left with the other half of your relationship. Some of these skills you never tried to acquire when you were still together. So you may not be good at painting or plumbing, but really an expert on PC issues. Someone else may be a plumber that is not so keen on all computerish things. See it as a barter group, that also allows for emotional support. Trade a cup of coffee for someone's ear. It is all about active support, be it by fixing a toilet or just listening one on one.
I think it would be beneficial if you would add a recent picture of yourself so that others in the group can recognize you.
