If you're a woman, 50+, and looking for friendships, you've found the right place. We are a group of seasoned, interesting, and supportive ladies. We are team players, believe in the Aloha Spirit, and in the wisdom of our 5th decade we have found self acceptance.
Finding Female Friends past Fifty (R) started in Los Angeles in January 2016, and has taken off! The charter LA group now has over 2,500 members. And we have spawned some 40 groups across the Meetup platform. This group in Honolulu has been formed as a charter group of the Finding Female Friends past Fifty (R) Meetup groups.
Woman over fifty are generally in transition. Children are gone, careers may be winding down, and schedules tend to be less cluttered. Just when we have more time for friends, we are most disconnected from the networks that allowed us to find them. FFF>F taps into this need. It explains why the New York Times article about us was so widely read, and is still being shared:
We’ll meet for lunch, coffee, or dinner and sometimes an activity like a museum visit or live music. We’ll always spend some time in a group bonding activity to help facilitate friendship-making. We’re in Hawaii, so let’s explore the diverse cultural influences and take advantage of our beautiful weather!
We will not be charging any membership dues in accordance with the FFF>F philosophy of making this available to all women over 50. However, I will charge a small fee to reimburse payment to Meetup for having this group.
Important! We require a picture that shows your features--a close-up of ONLY your head & shoulders, with no obscuring elements like sunglasses or low hats. PLEASE check your profile picture BEFORE you request membership. If your picture fails to meet the requirements, your request will be declined, and you will have to re-apply with a new picture.
