Dinner Mates created virtual dinners events so we could stay connected.

MEMBERS PRAISE

...it was a long time since I had giggled, let alone laughed.  Can’t wait for the next one!

For the first time in 2 months I actually felt like I was going "out".  Getting totally dressed really helped boost my mental state. No one could see my high heel booties, but my life took a step back to the old normal as I got out of my daily outfit : tee shirt, tights, and sneakers and put on real clothes for the first time since March 13th. 

Last night I was human again. In my mind I was leaving the confines of my apartment and going out to meet friends.  It totally lifted my spirits!!

Thank you for all you are doing to make these get togethers possible.

We can start to lose ourselves when we isolate from others. This workshop allowed us to cast aside our inhibitions and find our common bonds.

The Dinner Mates Happy Hour was so much fun. A bunch of “solo slashers” no more, we laughed and chatted and drank. Breaking out into small rooms facilitated fun conversations and I can’t wait for the next one to further my connections and make new ones. Beats drinking at home alone!
