A few days ago I was taking a walk along the Danube with one of my girlfriends. We were talking about what strategies we have, now that we are over 40, for meeting new people. And we didn’t mean dating, simply meeting new potential girlfriends. When moving to Budapest we both left our hometowns behind, leaving with it behind us, all our past friendships and acquaintances.
While it’s sometimes possible to make a new acquaintance here and there, building a community (especially a women’s community) seems more challenging. Our workplace communities stay at work, and conversations in shared interest groups tend to be centred around topics of common interest. A truly diverse community, where people can talk about work problems, the difficulties of motherhood or even personal issues, is less common.
This is why i decided, to start a selfish love-project. I am starting a group activity, where only women (girls, ladies) are allowed. On the first hand because I have a serious lack of female energies in my life, secondly, because I am sure, I am not the only one who feels like this.
We have one goal: to share our own wisdom and experiences, reflecting on other people’s problems. There is no age limit. The wider the age spectrum, the more diverse the experience we can bring to the group. There will be no counselling or “preaching”. We will simply reflect on the issues shared and offer our own solutions as options. Anyhow, we will only carry away as much as we can bare.
Come, meet, make friends. You never know where lifelong friendships are born. If you found it useful, then spread the spirit of community in your own life.
