Finding friends when you're female and past 50 can be a challenge, so let's accept that challenge. Let's start a great group of seasoned, interesting, and supportive women. After a few meetups, you will begin to make connections and form friendships....not overnight, but over time.
Please consider having a photo of yourself as your Meetup icon so we can look for and recognize one another at events.
Also, so you can receive email reminders of events you have signed up for, please have your EMAIL UPDATES and NOTIFICATIONS turned on in SETTINGS both on your desktop computer, AND ALSO ON YOUR PHONE APP. It is also essential to check back in the days before a scheduled event—stuff happens.
For instructions on how to change your settings, go to the group's home page. Click on MORE (under the picture of the lovely ladies), then click on MESSAGE BOARD. Now select "Email and notification settings." Make sure you've checked all the boxes that allow me to email and notify you. The Message Board is only available on the web application, you can't see it on the mobile app.
To edit Settings on the moblie app, go to your profile icon, (bottom right corner), then go to the 3 dots icon (upper right corner). Select "Push notifications", then select "Change email updates." Make sure you greenlight all the options.
