Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Meetup is a fantastic site for people who love to get out and participate in group activities. But large gatherings aren't always the best places to make lasting friendships and connections.

SpaceCoast Gal Pals is a group for women who want friends to talk to, hang out with and develop real friendships with, rather than just getting together with large groups of people.

If you like large crowds and big activities, there are plenty of great Meetup Groups to fit your needs. But if you would like to make friends for shopping, lunches, craft shows, community projects and just great conversation, Space Coast Gal Pals may be the place for you.

This email I received about a class as Stanford University sums up our goal with the Gal Pals group:

In an evening class at Stanford University the last lecture was on the mind-body connection - the relationship between stress and disease. The speaker (head of psychiatry at Stanford) said, among other things, that one of the best things that a man could do for his health is to be married to a woman whereas for a woman, one of the best things she could do for her health was to nurture her relationships with her girlfriends. At first everyone laughed, but he was serious.

Women connect with each other differently and provide support systems that help each other to deal with stress and difficult life experiences. Physically this quality "girlfriend time" helps is to create more serotonin - a neurotransmitter that helps combat depression and can create a general feeling of wellbeing.

Women share feelings whereas men often form relationships around activities. We share from our souls with our sisters/mothers, and evidently that is very GOOD for our health. He said that spending time with a friend is just as important to our general health as jogging or working out at a gym. There's a tendency to think that when we are "exercising" we are doing something good for our bodies, but when we are hanging out with friends, we are wasting our time and should be more productively engaged? Not true. In fact, he said that failure to create and maintain quality personal relationships with other humans is as dangerous to our physical health as smoking! So every time you hang out to schmooze with a gal pal, just pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for doing something good for your health! We are indeed very, very lucky.

Sooooo let's toast to our friendship with our girlfriends. Evidently it's very good for our health. Forward this to all your girlfriends to stay in touch, just like I just did! Thanks to all the girls in my life who have helped me stay healthy, happy, and feeling very loved.

Please read our Rules Page for more information and answer the Poll questions to help us determine which dates and activities would be best for you.

I look forward to meeting you!
