What we're about
Welcome to Divorced Separated Widow Desis of Philly&Suburbs w/w/o Kids (https://www.meetup.com/Divorced-Separated-Widow-Desis-of-Philly-Suburbs-w-w-o-Kids/) !
This is a support group for Desis who fit into the above categories. No need to be alone. Support is here. Please message me @856.562.8087 if you have any questions or concerns.
I'm Tony and I created this Group on May 8th, 2018!
This is The first and "ORIGINAL" group for Desis who are: "Divorced, Separated, and /or Widowed in Philadelphia. " This group is based in Philadelphia, PA.
To be a member of this group:
*****You must Be of Desi/Indian Decent or mixed Indian Decent to join this Group*****
I am Tony and I have 100% Sole Custody of my daughter! I know the challenges of being a single parent!
At my ( Tony's ) discretion I will try to ask new members for their valid phone # before accepting them as a new member.
Please Join us to build Deep, Authentic, and Rich Friendships that leave you feeling Breathless knowing others have been or are in the same boat as you. You don't have to be alone! We are here for you because "You Matter" "You Are Special" and "You Deserve to be Happy Again."
If you know of a location you would like to have an event, please send me all the details and I will take the ease of having you post it and will try post it for you if it's a location that will work for the group. I will try to list you as the contact person and members will contact you at the venue when they arrive if I cannot make it. Simply introduce yourself in a professional manner to the arriving members and take multiple group pics and send them to me so I can post them. Seamless, why go thru the hassle of posting an event when it can be done for you. Just give me 1 to 2 weeks notice beforehand to make sure there are no conflicts.
Most people who attend events are repeat attendees. The Reviews speak for themselves! Quality control is #1 in the group to make sure all members are comfortable, aren't being harassed and reached out to by members who they haven't event met to circumvent the designed "Meetup process."
Please Keep in mind I don't promote this as a singles group or dating group or matrimonial group in anyway shape or form. It's a support group and you should join for support only and no other expectations.
***Please include a face picture when you join, it must be a clear,close up, in color pic without sunglasses***
We are an Equal opportunity meetup group when it comes to an ex husband or ex wife, and future ex husband and future ex wife joining our meetup group. This means if you are part of this meetup even before your ex wife or ex husband or future ex wife or future ex husband, and they suddenly apply they have a right to join our meetup group and will not be declined or removed because you are here first. Everyone has a right to fair support and a right to make friends. If and ex husband or ex wife or future ex husband or future ex wife was declined in the past or removed in the past, they will be considered to rejoin if they reapply. If you see that your ex husband or ex wife or future ex husband or future ex wife is in this group they will not be removed because you feel uncomfortable. As adults you both can decide which events you both want to come to per comfort or not come to. ( In the 4 years of this group's existence, from what I can tell in my opinion, not many exes have tried to join but it does happen time to time and I wanted to let you know the terms above)
Remember, in my opinion even if 2 exes were not in this Meetup group, they will likely be in another meetup group and chances are, your friends from here may still likely run into and meet your ex. In my opinion this cannot be avoided.
We are also LGBTQ friendly because support is support regardless of your Orientation as long as the member is separated, or divorced, or widowed / widower. No judgements.
Harassment policy: If you receive a private message from a member that you have never met or if you have met and feel uncomfortable with it either way, please simply let them know not to private message you and you rather socialize at events. If they continue private messaging you, you have option to block them and also please take a picture of the continued harassment and send message to me on meetup.
