So today was the day to try a meeting of a new club I found on MeetUp.com. I was happy to get out on Sunday to miss all the football with the boys. I met a new bunch of women and we had a nice time chatting and drinking coffee.
Unfortunately, in the long run I do not see the group working out for me. I do not believe that I have a lot in common with this group of single career women who are a little too ready to commiserate about rotten men. I happen to be a happily married women who is lucky enough not to have to work at the current time. I have been a stay at home Mom for 20 years and have paid my dues. I am looking for a Ladies Club or Group of Women to hang out with during the day not during the weekends and nights. I have my husband for that!
So, I will keep persevering and hope I find a group in my area. I thought I had found another one, but they were all older, too. Actually, I found a few really good friends from that group. Perhaps I might still from this group, I may still go to the monthly meetings and see what happens.
It’s hard as you get older and don’t interact as much to make friends so I am looking on-line for a club or group. When the children were younger you had their sporting events to go to and could interact with their friends parents, or when I worked I had my co-workers or friends from work. After re-locating to Arizona, moving to such an arid, hot area, where everybody pulls directly into their garage, automatically closes the door and never shares any eye contact, it can be a lonely existence. So you must pursue your own avenues of contact, and of that I am.
