What we're about

The Single Parents-Divorced Adults Meetup group is a social networking group focused on helping people - many of whom are going through a significant and difficult transition in their lives - get out, make new friends and have FUN.

We are a diverse group of single parents and non-parents, some recently separated and/or going through a divorce, some already divorced for various lengths of time, and some who never were married. A small handful of longer-term members are now remarried. :)

However, please note: THIS IS NOT A "SINGLES" OR "DATING GROUP" and we strongly discourage individuals from joining for the purposes of dating or trying to establish a romantic relationship with other members. There are other Meetup groups and online services available for that purpose.

As many of us know all too well, going through a divorce and/or living as a single parent can result in feelings of grief, anger, loneliness and isolation. The goal of this group is to create a comfortable, caring and safe network of friendship and support where members can connect with others in similar situations, share feelings and learn from each other’s experiences.

The group is open to members both with and without children, and we try to offer a variety of both adults-only and kid-friendly activities. (NOTE: “Kid-friendly” does not mean that only those with kids can attend, or that it is an activity that only kids would enjoy. It simply indicates an activity or event where children are welcome.)

Monthly meetings, outings and activities are designed to provide a fun social outlet and promote friendships. Group events provide an opportunity to speak with others who are facing similar challenges or who can relate to what you might be going through because they've been through it themselves.

If you are new to Meetup, attending an event for the first time can feel very daunting. But our members are very welcoming and friendly. So just do it! We are confident you will be glad you did.

And if you have any ideas for group activities, feel free to make suggestions or take the plunge and host a Meetup yourself. It's very easy! If this is of interest, but you need help getting started please contact a group organizer.

We hope that you will decide to join us!
