What we're about

Guess what? SINGLE no longer means SOLITARY! Get off your computer and get into Real Life, with single FRIENDS eager to know you. You, as a welcomed and active member of this fun group, will now join activities, make friends, meet up, hang out, pick brains, get hugs, walk dogs, bring pets, enjoy cocktails, chow down, showcase talents, slow dance, accept compliments, pitch tents, suggest adventures, burn calories, share dreams, offer advice, travel everywhere, eat pizza, smile broadly, discuss books, laugh aloud, clean the highway, support our soldiers, hold benefits for pet and homeless shelters, shake hands, create ideas, clean up (OK, we may need your help SOMETIMES here!), and maybe even find love!

You'll also find we LOVE to travel! In groups of all sizes, on separate trips we've visited Puerto Rico, cruised the Caribbean 12 times (another coming every January!), beached it at gorgeous all-inclusive resorts all over Punta Cana and Mexico, and explore new and exciting countries in Europe for 10 nights every September (this year, Budapest, Prague & Krakow)! All our package deals are incredibly affordable, so forget about being an armchair traveler...pack your bag and let's GO!

By the way, our age group is almost entirely people in their 40s and 50s, and the age range we're including will be 38-65 years old. For those who do join, you'll need to have a real first name (no cutesy handles) and a profile here, and we suggest a photo too, as that's the best way to actually make new Single Friends!

CRUISE With Us In NOVEMBER 2022! Let's Sail Away, Together!

Terminal D - Port of Miami

So...yeah...as of[masked], currently (and temporarily) intensified COVID-19 restrictions took a big bite outta our January 2022 cruise dreams.

No worries, as I've bumped it now to NOVEMBER 13-19! SAME excellent 7-day/6-night Carnival cruise, ship (Freedom), ports*, beaches, deals*, group flights*, transfers*, 2 included group cocktail parties, wine in the room, reserved dinners every night, exciting shore excursions (or chillin' on each beach), and so much more!

Turns out November is a PRIMO time to cruise, as weather is better (both here AND there), we have zero worries about our January flights from O'Hare being cancelled or delayed due to blizzards, and we're home and refreshed 4 days before Thanksgiving, and the start to our beloved holidays here at home. Who knew??

Many from our January cruise bumped to November, and now I've been able to add cabins to make room for YOU! If you enjoy travel (and I LOVE it), this is a great opportunity to explore the world, with local friends you'll meet before, get to know better on the trip, and make great memories with. Don't wait! If all this COVID-19 stuff has taught us anything, it's to embrace opportunities to Live Life Now!

I've contracted NONSTOP group flights* (on AA) for a maximum of 40 of us from O'Hare to Miami at awesome, locked-in rates, including private coach transfers to get us to the cruise port and back. For now, just check out details (and occasional updates) on our Message Board here : https://www.meetup.com/single-friends-ns/messages/boards/thread/53461188 .

I often match roommates I feel will be good together; if you may want one, let's talk. I'll also do 1 to 2 Meet-and-Greets beforehand, so you get to know and like your fellow travelers, plus learn lots of fun tips for this trip. :-)

Once booked, please RSVP here (and include your Plus-1 if your roommate isn't already individually listed). Please DO NOT RSVP HERE until your room is booked. This listing is for locked-in cruisers only. Thanks!

Come sail away with us!
