ER in Chicago and looking for female buddies!

Hi, so glad to find this forum. I retired early at 53 and my husband is still working. We live in downtown Chicago and travel a lot. We are counting on his retirement to happen in the next 2-3 years and we'd like to move to a more moderate climate. We also currently own lakeside property in the Cliffs communities in South Carolina.

We are both very fitness oriented, and I am on a plant-based nutrition program which is the best change I've ever made!

I volunteer sporadically in the city, but I would also like to meet other women of my age and status for friendship, conversation and fun.

My browser shows the headline as ER in Chicago, looking for female.

I'm thinking now we're gettiong right down to it, heck with SWR and bond funds, just ship me a female. Even COD is OK.

Welcome Lauren. I frequent Chicago, but not a woman, so I can't help you there. Enjoy the forum!
