Finding Female Friends Past Fifty is exploding all over LA county, and across the USA! Women in general, and our demographic in particular, are finally getting the recognition we deserve; our contributions, and our needs being acknowledged.

If you're 50+, living in the South Bay, and looking for friends, you've found the right place. We are 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.

IMPORTANT! IMPORTANT! I require a picture that shows your features--a close-up of ONLY your head & shoulders, with no obscuring elements like sunglasses or low hats. As Organizer your picture is an essential tool, often the only way to tell one member from another. PLEASE check your profile picture BEFORE you request membership. If your picture fails to meet my requirements, your request won't be accepted.

One more thing:

It’s essential, as a member of our group, that you have your EMAIL UPDATES and NOTIFICATIONS turned on in SETTINGS both on your desktop computer, AND ALSO ON YOUR PHONE APP. It is also necessary to check back frequently in the days before a scheduled event—stuff happens.

Here's a link with instructions for turning on Email Updates:

And here's a link for turning on Push Notifications on your cell phone:

One last thing: FFF>F IS ABOUT FINDING FRIENDS, NOT CUSTOMERS. SO COME PREPARED FOR CONVERSATION AND CAMARADERIE. AND, PLEASE, LEAVE YOUR BUSINESS-NETWORKING HAT AT HOME.

Looking forward to meeting you!
