For those who have completed the bereavement process and are younger than the typical age when a spouse passes, it is difficult to keep up with or be included in the usual couple activities that once you were a great part of and which provided much of your social outlets.

When you are ready to start socializing again, it is nice to do it with people who understand where you have been and what you are coming from. This is not a grief group but rather a group of people, both men and women who will forge new friendships and perhaps closer connections to have FUN again. We have over 150 members and have been organized for over 3 years.

I have searched the Naples/Bonita Springs area for a club such as I describe and found  a few but the ages of the participants were 75 on up.

There are also several 40+ social and/or singles groups on Meetups and I have gone to a few of these events,but the age range is too vast and often venues are dance clubs with loud music.  Unfortunatley it is difficult to talk and get to know each other and the group is generally very big and then gets clicky.

 This group will also have smaller informal gatherings where we can meet, brainstorm and plan, at least for newcomers.

Further if you have been out "there" hoping to meet a special someone you may have confronted a separated or divorced interest. However, there is generally an unhappy xspouse that you will have to deal with at future family gatherings. Widows and widowers don't have that (as they say) type of "baggage".

That being said, to start members need to sign up. So, if you are a widow or widower ages 50-68 and identify, please join. You MUST provide a facial photo without sunglasses or a hat so we will recognize you.

I envision this group doing things of that nature eventually,but we will also have quieter times where we get to know each other, as pot luck suppers, game nights, kayaking, golf etc.

We're 148 Widows and Widowers
