What we're about

Now in our 5th Year of enhancing the lives of SOCIAL SINGLES Over 40 in Frederick!

Do you find yourself talking to yourself, out loud, all alone? I DO!!!

Are you sick and tired of the lies and misrepresentations of dating sites?
For me it was like 50 first dates!!!

So, I decided its time to get out and meet some people! And Frederick Social Singles 40+ was born. This group is NOT not about Dating, its about socializing with like spirits. But sometimes in a safe and friendly environment where people meet and great, special things happen! Many great long lasting close friendships have begun here! Even some special close relationships, as well.
After about a year and a half in the life of this group, I met my wife! When we get into our 40s AND BEYOND, it seems to be more challenging to find comfortable places to go to meet other single people! So, sometimes we stay home, a bit too often maybe.

Many of us are not interested in hanging out in bars all the time, by ourselves.

I believe a lot of us also like to keep things local; there are so many Frederick area things to do! By the end of the workday, sometimes we just don't feel up to driving all the way into DC, Rockville or Virginia just to socialize. Even on the weekends! There's plenty of interesting and fun things to do right here locally, and plenty of other meet-up groups planning events down there.

So, I thought I would create a group so us folks here, local to Frederick, would have a comfortable group of pleasant, fun loving single adults to meet, greet, just chill, relax and have some conversation.

Although it's a 'singles' group, its NOT a 'Pick-up' group! We're all about a pressure-free environment for singles to meet and have some fun. If two people happen to click, great! But meeting someone to date is not our primary purpose.

Because I have since become happily married, Christoph took the lead in organizing our group. Since he also recently got married, Joanne has stepped to lead the organizing of the group. With a Super team of co-organizers we continue the tradition of creating Fun, Friendly gatherings for Frederick Singles who happen to be over 40, to meet and laugh and have a great time!

So, if you're looking for a local place to get out and socialize and meet some singles about our own age, with similar interests, or if you're tired of sitting around the house alone, staring at four walls and a TV all night, just a little too often, perhaps this may be a good group.

So, come on out and see how many great single people are hiding in the woodwork here in Frederick.


Over the years, we have continued to grow Nick's concept. We have formed a welcoming community of single adults who are exploring our local community. If you have ideas for things to do or a desire to organize some events, please talk to an organizer, we would love to have more people running events. Additionally, because this is all of our groups, twice a year we take a collection to cover the fees that MeetUp charges us. When collecting we ask for anything up to $5 per person,if you are gaining some value from this, and please remember that we are all volunteers in this group.
