Why did you join Friends First Social Group?

To expand my social horizons & hopefully find a relationship with a man, who is mature, but not dead yet! It’s so hard to know where people are coming from: some still burning from divorce, many confused, afraid to connect, or wanting purely to be social. I'm looking for both new friends & hopefully some kind of relationship with a male. Desire mutual respect & support--however imperfect, but the intent must be mature & considerate. I do not want to get married (mix assets), live together or support someone. Ideally I would like the long term relationship that is reliable, but gives us room to be ourselves too. But shorter term is better than nothing!

What is your status? Chose One: Single-never married, Seperated/Divorcing, Single-Divorced, Widowed, Commited Couple, Married

SINGLE- never married, no kids. I've been in healthy long term relationships while living separately & seeing each other alot - providing mutual support. No legal contracts tho & no divorce fees.

How would you describe your personality type? Choose from: FUN, Extrovert, Never Met A Stranger, Somewhere In The Middle, Quiet, Shy, Introvert, Laid Back, Wild and Crazy.

I am comfortable talking with all types of people about many different subjects. So I'm somewhat of an Extrovert, but never loud!! I also seldom vie to be the center of attention, but won't get too upset if so. I love to have fun, but also take life seriously in that I examine of lot of different subjects in this life with depth. I believe it's important to live life with a sense of purpose about who we choose to be & how that affects others (including humans, animals & the planet as a whole).

So what do you think that your biggest personality asset is?

My intelligence & my creativity. Also a sense of humor. I love humor as a means of diversion from the tedious aspects of life & humor can promote reflection. I cannot help but reflect on things; it's in my DNA, I suppose. I'm told I have a split brain: a very logical/analytical side & a VERY creative side. The creative side needs more freedom!

What do you enjoy doing the most in life ? Hobbies? Work? Tell us!

I love creative activities & this is what I get to do least - partially because I have no one to share these things with. I do regular partner dancing, but want to get back into piano. Enjoy any creative outlet: comedy, good writing, theatre, LOVE music, dance. I write poetry & some humorous things periodically. I also volunteer with animals which I LOVE, but became allergic to them again. Also enjoy young children, tho I don't have much access to any. I joined this & some other groups because I'm doing too many things alone! The interests are there; but I'd like a guy friend with me sometimes!


I enjoy the social activities, but would love to find some kind of relationship. I have several interests: dancing, music, biking, fitness, nature, animals, more. I'm a very creative, intelligent & emotionally mature person w/ fun ideas.

What Sophie B. is saying about this Meetup Group

Excellent group, but we always need more men!! You can't all be dead already! Get out of your rut & come on over. Guys & gals - bring your men friends!! That's an order (please). Very friendly group.
