2019 -This is a group for WOMEN ONLY!! We also have a cap of 550 members! WE ALSO REQUIRE A REAL, RECOGNIZABLE PHOTO OF YOU. Please note that if your photo is of a dog, a bicylce, a plant, or anything else besides YOU, you will be asked to provide a new photo. Please make sure you photo is uploaded on a computer, not on a cell phone under the Meetup App. Per Meetup, the phone does not work for your photo. We are still very new, only a little over 9 months! Are you looking for female friends in your age group (50 + only) with whom you can check out a movie, cook, go to an art opening, or just grab some coffee or wine and talk? Then this new meetup is for you! You might find someone who'll be your very best friend, discover someone to hang with, or connect with a work-out buddy. Click on our calendar to start. This is the Austin chapter of FFF>F, brain child of Dale Pollekoff and subject of "The New York Times" article published on Dec. 31, 2018: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/31/style/self-care/finding-female-friends-over-50-meetup.html
We want each and every member to feel at ease at any event. We encourage you to look at the events we post and find what is right for you. Please be considerate of other members so that we all can enjoy this group and get the most out of it. Be considerate of those on WAIT LISTS!!. Those patient ladies only get to go to that event when someone can not go and changes their response from "going" to "not going". Please do not "no show" for an event. If you do not show up at an event that you have committed to, you will be flagged as a "no show". After 3 No shows you can be removed from the group.
We hope you are able to find that "new best friend" you have been looking for. With all the events, it is highly likely that you will. We also hope you tell your friends about us and that they also want to join so they can have as much fun as you. Every woman has a lot to offer, so we hope you will spread the love and be courteous to all you meet. In this age group, some of us are working full time, part time, retired, taking care of children, grandchildren, aging parents and multitudes of aging conditions, diseases and mobility problems. However, in this group, we are all gracious, smiling ladies looking for the same thing:
We hope you are Finding Female Friends Past Fifty!!
