What we're about

About Us
This group is for Single women and men who are ages 50 and above. We have weekly virtual Zoom and in-person Meetup events. Our weekly virtual Zoom Meetups are about receiving Relationship coaching and advice from Relationship Coach Christine Baumgartner. Our in-person events are about meeting and making new friends, seeing existing friends, and making connections with other members.

If you are you feeling discouraged about meeting someone special, nervous about keeping that brand new relationship alive, or have relationship related questions, then this group is for you. Find out how other people are handling all the changes in their social lives. Learn from others who are discovering ways to continue their special relationships during the pandemic. Christine will be sharing tools and creative ways to still connect with new people, and how to stay connected with those already in our life.

** Photo and Profile Policy **
Due to the high number of scammers, fake Meetup profiles, and people looking to disrupt group events, we require this policy without exception.
We require that all members have a current, clearly identifiable photo of themselves (no obscuring sunglasses, hats, helmets, scarfs, group shot, etc.). This is for the safety and security of all our members and also allows us to recognize you at our events. The organizer(s)/ host(s) are responsible for determining adherence to this policy and may ask you to change or profile picture to comply with this requirement. Photographs taken at an event may be posted on the group event page to share and promote the group for the benefit of the community as a whole.
People requesting to join this group must have their Meetup groups visible in their profiles. Anyone who does not comply with this rule will be declined membership or removed from the group.

** Member Safety and Security Policy **
This group is about learning, developing and establishing friendships, relationships, and sharing experiences, participating in activities with people who like to learn, be coached and with common interests. Harassment (bullying, racial, cyber, verbal abuse, unsolicited emails/ messages, sexual, psychological, etc.) will not be tolerated. If you are being harassed, feel threatened or uncomfortable by someone's advances, please let us know right away. Anyone who violates this rule will be immediately removed from the group, and if it is determined that a crime has been committed, then it will be reported to the authorities.
With that said, we understand that sometimes friendships can develop into a romantic relationship. If that happens naturally, then you have our support and blessing. For those members who attend our in-person events, and park in parking garages/ structures to attend events, we ask that you use caution when coming and returning to your cars to avoid the possibility of being attacked or car-jacked. You can always ask another member to walk you to your car.
