I am a single woman who owns her own business. I volunteer every Tuesday night with The End Violence Project (we work with ex-offenders to help them create new futures).
My social life is busy.
Here are some resources:
The White Dog Cafe in University City is a great place to go. They have a quarterly newsletter full of events hosted at the cafe: speakers, poets, story telling. May people attend alone.
The International House in University City has many events, movies, music, international food an cultural events.
You can find them on the internet.
There is Landmark Education Corporation where you can take courses in breakthrough thinking. These courses are great for people who are in transition. These courses are AWESOME. There is an introduction next Wed. from 7 p.m. - 10:15 p.m. at 105 S. 7th St. in Philly. I am going with a friend who wants to register for the core course called, "The Landmark Forum." If you would like to meet us there, let me know.
Also, there are so many organizations in the region.
You can take dance lessons-so many things to do. Just convince yourself that it is ok to go out alone.
