What we're about

The New York Times did an article back in December 2018 on the difficulty women "of a certain age" have in making new friends. (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/31/style/self-care/finding-female-friends-over-50-meetup.html?searchResultPosition=1))

And the Atlantic Monthly just posted a great article about women making friends... https://tinyurl.com/2p8murwf

Looking for new female friends?  Long term friends moved away?  Lost a partner and need a female friend? Just moved to DC? Looking for a girlfriend to talk to, or socialize with?   We're here for you! Join women from all walks of life who want to make new female friends and join a sisterhood.


This is a special group for women by women. It is mostly based in DC and most events occur in the District or nearby suburbs.   In order to form meaningful relationships you are asked to come to at least 1 meetup every 3 months. Please do not ask to join if you live far from DC and please don't ask to join if you cannot make this commitment

We do a lot of walks, visits to museums, happy hours, check out new and old restaurants for brunc, lunch or dinner. We love suggestions of all kinds!

This group is limited this group to Women 50 and over (I just got another application from a guy).  Our members have always been very respectful about RSVPs and we hope to continue that.
