I’ve met several people who are friend material volunteering in the community. It’s always good to know your friends care about others and girls who get out on a saturday to help other women usually do. 5 years ago
I moved and am much happier. Still haven’t met most of my neighbors, but we recently had 20 friends over and it was like “Wow, these are only by best friends, I have a great circle”.
Need to work on work friends/ mentors. 5 years ago
I’m moving locally from a rich white neighborhood back to the city where people walk to restaurants, raise kids, don’t agree on religion and don’t live behind gates. I can’t wait! It’s been too long!
My goal is to meet the neighbors on dog walks, at the coffee shop, and at the park meetings. I always love more friends. 6 years ago
Premise: people who join groups meet other people who they have something in common with.
Based on this premise I have joined a non-profit women’s leadership/ volunteer association. This wouldn’t typically be my sort of thing. This orgnization has an ‘upper crust’ image even though they claim to open to all and many of ladies involved the are older and wealthy (my mom was once one). Although this image still holds true for the membership in general I found the group of ladies who were just joining to be a bunch of energetic jean clad professionals.
On Sat I went to the 1st meeting. The incoming bunch was a group of 60 professional ladies from 25-35. I meet two cool women I immediately connected with and will have further contact with. I was also invited into a group of ladies (a subset of this bunch) in my area of SD. I mentioned when I introduced myself to the group I was looking new and for work. Now 20 more people who might have an interest in helping/ networking etc. know about my job hunt than on Friday. 7 years ago
