Like a lot of women, I always thought I'd have the perfect family but life had other plans. I think I fall under the "childless by circumstances" category. At 50, I've accepted that fact that I won't have any children of my own, and even though 1 out of 5 women will never have kids, sometimes I still feel like I'm the only one. If your days of trying for kids are over and your looking for friends to relate to, come join us. I created the same meetup in NY a few years ago and it was the best thing I've ever done. I just knew I wanted (and needed) to make friends with other happy women like me, who sometimes need the support from women in the same situation. I don't want to dwell or celebrate not having kids, I just want to learn that life can be happy and meaningful without them.
My only requirements are that: (1) you are a biological female, (I'm sorry, no men allowed here) who has wanted to have children, but now your focusing on plan B - a life without kids. (2) Please don't join the group if you never wanted children or if you are actively trying to conceive or adopt. It would be heartbreaking for those around you. (3) Please don't join if have already had children, even if you lost custody of them, they moved away, they no longer communicate with you, etc. This group is strictly for women who have never had children.
Lastly (I know, this is long, I'm sorry) I am living in NY currently but will be living in Port St. Lucie part time in a year. I'm hoping that someone would like to co-organize with me or be an event planner. I think I can have 3 or 4 other organizers/planners.
