Since moving to the Tallahassee area over four years ago, I haven’t connected to many other women. Most days I’m fine enjoying my own company, but sometimes I get lonely.

My blogging friend, The Happy Quitter at inspired me to connect with others as she had through the Meetup app, so on Thursday evening I did just that and met members of the Tallahassee Women’s Social Meetup at the Wine Loft.

I’m not going to lie, I was a nervous ninny before connecting with these women I’d never met before, but Studly Doright sent me off with a kiss and an admonition against talking too loudly–something I do when I’m nervous. I’m not sure I was successful in keeping my decibels down, but I don’t recall anyone recoiling in disgust, or covering both ears, so maybe I was within reasonable levels.

The group of women was friendly and diverse. I enjoyed sipping wine and visiting for a couple of hours, and I’m looking forward to the next time I’m able to join them. Maybe my nerves will have calmed and I can listen more than I talk.

I’ll write more later, but for now I must prepare for an adventure. Sorry to be so cryptic, but I’m not even sure what it entails.

Peace, people!

  1. Meeting new people is always my wife’s hardest thing, though I’ve noticed if it’s an art or cooking group she has absolutely no problems. I guess in her case it just has to surround around a favorite activity. I hope your group turns out nice for you. – Marty

  2. Having lived many years in Florida, I am somewhat familiar with Tallahassee. FSU provides a break from the closed mind people who occupy the Capitol building, not all but many. Tallahassee will offer some diverse points of view, some good, some polarizing and some maybe just dumb. Regardless meeting and talking is our hope. Keep going out.

  3. I met the most lovely ladies (my book club) through the Meetup app and it was one of the best things I have ever done! I, too, was very nervous as this was definitely outside my comfort zone. I was delightfully surprised and will be trying this again once I retire. I hope you enjoy your new group as much as I enjoy mine!
