I’m Older and How Do I Meet New Friends

We are all so busy now and don’t always have time for our current responsibilities, so how could we possibly meet new people.  Maybe your partner is required to like your friends as well.  If they don’t, that hinders the continuation of the friendship.  Your life may be busy with your partner, children and building a career.  How do you make room for friends?

If you are fortunate, you have friends that know your history and you still enjoy each other’s company.

Maybe you just moved to a new community and need to build new friendships?

How Important Are Your Friends?

Friends are a sanity lifeline for most of us.   Our friendships evolve from the different aspects of our lives…childhood, women we met through our children, church, work and the list is endless.  The important word here is friends.

Yes, we can annoy each other, though somehow it doesn’t matter because we love and appreciate each other.  Friendships are important for our well-being.

Friends make you laugh, listen to you when you’re sad, angry or confused, share the happy moments that bring a smile to your face.    Think about each of your friends and ask “how am I different since knowing this person or what has he/she taught me that has added to my life?”

How to Keep Women Coming Back

For years we have been promoting the virtues of women’s groups and during that time we have listened to the community repeatedly sharing their biggest challenge with us:

 How do we keep members committed to consistently showing up for each meeting?

 This is a big issue. It’s not difficult to appeal to women and attract them into showing up for a new group and attending a meeting or two. But keeping their interest and enticing them to come back for more is a tougher problem.

What Can I Gain By Joining a Women’s Group

You may be considering joining a women’s group but are a bit hesitant. Joining any type of group takes a commitment. You must commit your time and energy to such a group. It also requires a mental, emotional commitment on your part. Therefore, you may be asking yourself, is it worth it? What will this group provide to me if I become a member?

Joining a women’s group can offer so much more than you ever thought possible.

You may be thinking of joining a group to expand your circle of friends or possibly to do some networking.

Women’s Group: A Second Family

A fortunate thing about a women’s group is that there is always someone to spill your guts to, listen wholeheartedly, tell it like it is, and to carry you through to the next stage of your life. At some point, the group becomes your second family and telling the members your deepest darkest secrets and intimacies comes naturally.

It has been said that humor is one of the best cures for what ails you. If that’s the case, a women’s group can accommodate that need as well. If prayer and meditation is something that guides you, a group can lift you up and be there to listen—the key word being listen.

What Makes the Women in Your Life Special?

Women come in and out of our lives on a daily basis…some are a constant and others gently bump into us and then quickly move on.   What do we do with those connections?   Do we ignore or treasure them?

We believe that as individuals women are powerful in their own right.  Anytime you bring two or more women together, the strength multiplies significantly and the impact can be unexpected.  Even brief moments can spark an idea, warm our hearts with memories and make a difference in how we feel about ourselves. 

Here are some examples of wonderful women experiences:

Sharing Brings Growth

Who really are these women? What do they each represent? Will they judge me for the life I lead? Will they criticize me for the opinions I express? Do I fit in? Will they like me?

When you first join a women’s group, it’s both exciting and a bit scary. You may be hesitant to participate at first and certainly will wonder about the other members in the group. This kind of concern might prevent you from making the most of your women’s group experience. Not to worry – you’ll get the hang of it soon.

Change Your Life: Start a Women’s Group

Whether you are someone with a full, active life or with very little going on in your everyday life, you likely feel like there is something missing from your days.  For many women, that hole can be filled by being a part of a women’s group. So if you have a void in your life, why not be proactive and start a women’s group of your own?

Although it may feel safe and easier to simply find a women’s group that is already in existence, you will gain so much more by starting your own group from scratch. What will you gain?

Women Coming Together

Many people joke about how when women get together they can become jealous, competitive and “catty”. Such a negative stereotype certainly ignores the incredible bond and sisterhood that women generally share with each other.

Women experience so many things in life that are common across the board and tend to be common across different cultures and even across age ranges. This is why forming a women’s group can be something amazing for virtually every type of woman out there.

Isn’t It Nice When Things Just Seem to Come Together?

Do you find yourself wishing for things to simply work out easily? That things should just plain go your way? No problems, no worries, no hassles? Me too! And amazingly, every so often we put our thoughts out there and everything works like a charm.

Let me tell you how my daughter’s bridal shower just seemed to gel to perfection out of thin air.

I recently moved from NY to Las Vegas, close to where my daughter and her boyfriend are currently living. The decision to move cross country was made about 2 weeks before my daughter called me with the good news: she was engaged. No more boyfriend, now fiancé.
