This is a group for fairly smart, fun (funny is a plus), personable, well PAST their divorce ( if applicable), SINGLES over 48 up to whatever age, who want to get together to try new things that they have wanted to do, but either "used to do", or never did. I am thinking...we go shoot pool ( but one of us actually knows what they are doing and gives a lesson or two), we hike to the Indian at Valley Green (but one of us wasn't only up there during a kegger in 1985 and has no clue how to get back there anymore), we train for a 5K (but we are all semi-out of shape - or maybe we are in shape- and we mob mentality- I mean support - each other to press on)...stuff. I don't know how to take the train to NYC to walk around or see a show. I've never learned how to bet on the ponies at the race track. Tons of ideas!
Now, remember, for this to work, we need an experienced person and willing learners to sign up. Or, if we don't have that, we figure it out together. What could go wrong? (Insert evil laughter).
This is a group for anyone who's 48 plus and wants to get out and about and meet and mingle to try new things, attend fun events in actual real life with other 48 Plus men and women. People their own age who want to reboot, relaunch or just have new experiences and expand their friend group if they don't connect with anyone at events.
And people who know what they might actually be doing or want to do on the weekend and will make their plans and stick to them (barring the unavoidable) or who will drop out maybe two full days ahead.
I know this SEEMS petty...but isn't it great to know who will actually be there and to have reservations at a table and will be there at a certain time and all just have fun and a decent night out with a few laughs and maybe a connection or two?
Dating or messaging isn't banned at all, but aggressively annoying people is not tolerated.
PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT KATE UPTON OR GEORGE CLOONEY TO BE RSVPING. MEET PEOPLE YOUR AGE OR CLOSE. GET OUT AND ABOUT. MINGLE. SHARE COMMON EXPERIENCES OR LEARN SOMETHING NEW. HAVE FUN!
This group is not for you:
If you only want to meet people much YOUNGER than yourself. Those people are not in this group and when we attend mixed events (surprise) they don't mingle with the men and women in our group, other than pleasantries.
If you would be highly insulted if someone asked for your number or if they asked if you wanted to chit chat sometime. You can say, "No. Thank you. I don't wish to do that but thank you". And you move about the crowd. Any pressure or problems, you would see me.
If you find that you are not in a position to attend anything, for whatever reason. Maybe the area where I host is nowhere near your home base.
If you attend and do not make any attempt to talk to anyone (after you see what's what when you get used to going to events). For instance, you stay glued to the bar. You never talk to anyone new. You never crack a smile. You just dance with some person you brought. Things like that. What fun is that for anyone else who came?
I will try my best to make sure you find me and I will introduce you to people. I post clear descriptions and ways to get to the events.
RULES: Please read our Rules at this link, and then we hope you choose to join us!
