"Femme Women4Femme Women (FW4FW)" is a group that is:
It's for femme lesbians/bisexual women only who are:
Please Note: Definition of Emotionally Mature - An adult who takes full responsibility for one's life, i.e, feelings, words, deeds, behaviors, and accepts the consequences, if any. The adult also does not blame, make excuses, or project onto others one's issues, problems, and/or behaviors.
This group is about attracting and maintaining quality femme women (lesbian and/or bi-sexual) who are interested in meeting other femme women (lesbian and/or bi-sexual) in the community.
It is a subgroup of the community that identifies as "femme" as it is defined by that particular person. Although I realize that people do not like to label themselves which I respect, it is used only as a common denominator for this group.
GOAL OF GROUP
To make friends, network, socialize, and have fun with other femme women in the community. This social group is NOT:
a swinger's group/club;
a hook-up site;
a dating service; or
a therapy group.
There are other groups and community centers that would be better suited to meet those particular needs.
Members range in age from 40s to 60s and work in various fields, such as, insurance, medical, legal, communications, health, travel, just to name a few. Friendships have been made and couples have been formed as a result of being a part of this group.
Events are unique, upscale, and engaging while drinking is more an art than its own activity. The group is geared around events and works best under this structure.
These events are meant to help meet each other and what occurs between consenting members offline or after events are private and between them.
The calendar - which lists the events - can only be viewed if you are a member. There are two types of activities: scheduled meetup events (gray / pink or orange colored dates) vs. events that are for your information only (yellow post-it dates). Meetup's are scheduled anywhere from one to four per month.
The group is organized on a volunteer basis and events are scheduled in between other priorities, such as, careers, jobs, relationships, vacations, family obligations, etc.
Like other successful groups, there are guidelines which are similar to meetup.com's. In a nutshell, it's the basic golden rule of life: be respectful of one another in word and deed. If alcohol is involved, then know your limits so that the guidelines can still be followed and adhered; in other words, please drink responsibly.
Donation/Membership dues is $26.98 which covers meetup fees and any costs associated with setting up events. Please note: Yearly online payment is made before being admitted into the group.
It's easy to become a member, so feel free to join if:
You are 40 and above; and
You identify as "femme" however "femme" is defined for you.
And remember...you get as much as you put in...this meetup is about and for you!
*Please note that membership acceptances are done bi-monthly.
