Looking for women's friendship and support in the Long Beach/Lakewood area? Let's cultivate real friendships and a support system for women who need sisters to lean on, talk to, hang out with, have fun with! Maybe you're here on your own. Maybe your friends just aren't available much. It can be hard to make solid friendships and find people who are there for more than texting or the occasional happy hour. The LA mentality can be so self-consumed and "too busy for you" as individuals struggle to build their lives and survive. So, we can get lost in the shuffle, lose connections with people, and end up feeling alone. And, that's no way to live! Women need girlfriends, a circle of sisters to be there for them to fulfill their practical, social, and emotional needs. We need other women to talk to, share our struggles with, help us out, and, yes, HAVE FUN WITH! The purpose of this group is support and connection foremost. Member Sisters will build relationships and have people to call up and talk to when they need encouragement or just want friendly chat, or Real Life, In-Person Company. Secondarily, we're all welcome to suggest and host meetups of all kinds. You can post an activity that you're looking for someone to join you in, or host a larger, more formal meetup for the entire group. We can go out or stay in. (A gathering in a sister's home with snacks and socializing is perfect. We don't have to break our wallets just to get together!) Member Sisters are also welcome to suggest attending events already organized by other Meetups. I just want to make it clear that the main purpose is NOT creating events (that's a lovely by-product), but creating friendships and support. (Meetup already has countless events of every variety for us to partake of.) So, if you need sisters in your life, you are enthusiastically welcomed and encouraged to join!
PLEASE NOTE: Our gatherings are WOMEN ONLY (min. 21 yrs old), no kids, no men. I promise they will survive without you for a few hours here and there! ;-) (This includes events that are otherwise family-friendly and will have kids in attendance: we will not be bringing OUR kids.) Please do not put people in the awkward position of asking them to make exceptions for you. We love kids. We love men. But this group is just for US.
