I was seeking / hoping to join a "ladies only" 40's to 50's age range group to meet some women that are active, share common interests, that may be in the same phase of life as me ...empty nest, kids are grown / off to college, divorced / single ect. But, there didn't seem to be any meet ups like that in my area, so I decided to try to start one up. There are dating sites to find a " boy friend"...but what site is out there if you genuinely just want to make some friends? :) It can be difficult to make new "girl friends" as an adult. Socializing with co-workers is not always an option. Meeting up for happy hour, dinner or breakfast, coffee /tea, shows, a hike / a walk, wine tastings, a girls night out, paint and sip classes... positive friendly connections to other women will hopefully evolve into friendships. We all need friends.
