What we're about

The group previously known as Finding Female Friends past 45. If you are fortyish and up, we would love to have you join us.

What we're about

This is a sister group to the one formed in Los Angeles by a similar name and recently featured in the New York Times. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/31/style/self-care/finding-female-friends-over-50-meetup.html

Here's an unfilled niche: female friends in their mid 40’s and beyond. Plenty of meetups for 50's singles, 40's professionals, and 20's of every persuasion. But middle aged friends? Nada. FFF>F fills this gap. If you're 45+, living in Boulder County and surrounding area, and are looking for friends, you've found the right place. My hope is to form a great group of dynamic, interesting, and supportive women. Once we get going, you will begin to know our active members, and you will form friendships....not overnight, but over time. So come prepared for conversation and camaraderie. And, please, leave your business-networking hat at home; this is about finding friends, not customers.

As a Facebook group founder, I often receive membership requests, accompanied by profile pictures that are group shots, distance shots, faces obscured by scarves or sunglasses--not to mention images of dogs, flowers, and cartoons. For this group, I require a picture that shows your features (a mug shot) so that I can tell one member from another. As Organizer your picture is an essential tool for helping me to remember who you are.

For instructions on how to change your settings, go to the FFFF - Boulder County home page. Click on MORE, 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 mobile 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.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Introduction to The ENNEAGRAM

225 E 8th Ave

Space is limited as this will be a small group so that we can have a deeper introduction to the wisdom of the Enneagram. This is a FREE event held at a private residence (Grace's condo). What is Enneagram Wisdom? Would you like a tool that supports you to be a healthier parent, partner, co-worker, friend, family member, or overall person? This casual offering will introduce Enneagram wisdom and its typology basics. You will be encouraged to experience basic wisdom aspects and to ask questions. Enneagram wisdom, when fully embraced, can feel like having a handbook for being human. It encourages personal insights and flushes out unique choices. When its teachings are applied it supports compassion for yourself, others and the world. Understanding how to use it is important. Without understanding, it can label, limit, and ultimately cause harm. An independent course study workbook, a way to learn Enneagram wisdom, will be available for you to purchase ($15). Private sessions are also available for those who desire one-time or ongoing personal support. I invite you to see if Enneagram feels right for you! Bio: Nancy Markow is the founder of Connecting You with YourSelf, East Morrison, Colorado. She weaves together Yoga, Meditation, Enneagram, Spirituality and Metaphysics to illuminate the importance of a loving relationship with Self. Empowered Living with the Enneagram, a course she created, shares Enneagram wisdom in a positive way that supports living with compassion and purpose. Her intentionally diverse 20+ years of Enneagram and other studies, support the personal and creative approaches she shares. www.connectingyouwithyourself.com
