What we're about

Welcome to Finding Female Friends past Fifty© of RVA, inspired by the New York Times article, "Finding Female Friends Over 50 Can Be Hard. These Women Figured It Out."
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/31/style/self-care/finding-female-friends-over-50-meetup.html

"Many studies have concluded that friendships are vital to a person’s well-being, and this is especially true for older women. A study by the Industrial Psychiatry Journal published in Psychology Today showed a significant relationship between depression and loneliness in older people. It suggested that “female friendships can be the key to happiness in older women, but they’re not often treated as such.” It’s not emphasized as much as exercising or eating well, but it’s just as important, according to the study."

Who should join? Women over 50, or close to fifty, looking to socialize with other women.
