I'm a member of a broader group online of Christian mothers, but haven't been so active there lately since the board has taken a distinctly Messianic flavor. (ETA: To clarify, discussion of Orthodox beliefs- along with Catholic and Mormon beliefs- are not allowed on the board I'm referencing. I'd just like to find an online women's group where discussion of Orthodox topics is "allowed".)
I've considered starting a group online for Orthodox mothers/women, but maybe there's already one out there?

We have "Other Topics" and the Politics forum generally devolves into gossiping and catty infighting, there is also a family forum that no one uses all that much so I'm sure you ladies could take it over.

Otherwise, if anyone does know of an online forum full of Orthodox ladies I'd be more than interested in hearing about it!

You could simply start a thread in Other Topics - labeled "singles" or something of that nature....and see where it goes.

We have a number of single men and women on this illustrious Forum.

Wow.  That brings back some memories.  I went from being stressed out in a relationship to being stressed out out of a relationship in the span of that one.

Why singles only? Is that what she's looking for. I'm confused, as usual.

I can relate.  I looked for one also.  The largest female presence I would say is on Ancient Faith, there are plenty of female-centered threads, discussions of issues specific to women, they are interesting and I read them carefully if even I do not participate.  ByzCath - just a few women present, no female topics other than the "sharing Grandma's recipes" section (yawn).  Forums or at least sections specifically for Orthodox women - I have not found any anywhere, unfortunately.  I did join a yahoo group for Headcovering Orthodox Women - it seems to be a small close community.

So I'd get to know the ladies on Ancient Faith, it's a large forum with a lot of diversity. My username there is Mariya116, and I seem to fit in, strangely. :-)

I guess it's hard to comprehend the idea that women may just be interested in talking to each other and not (gasp) in manhunting.

The sarcasm was by no means addressed to you, Αριστοκλής, but to people who turned this into a "singles" thread.

Umm...you guys already have public restrooms at your disposal.  Are they not good enough beauty salons/conversation rooms/photo settings for y'all?

If the sarcasm was aimed at me....I was not answering the OP, but, the two posts prior to mine....who were specifically talking of "singles".

You need to realize that this thread, as is the entire forum, is open to both sexes, and therefore, you should expect a bit of joking around.
Nobody even suggested that women are out on a manhunt.

The "joke" was demeaning and the entire forum is not really my cup of tea so far, and I don't want to become a troll here so I would like to wish the best to everyone here. Smiley  I fit in much better on my Ancient Faith.

ByzCath - just a few women present, no female topics other than the "sharing Grandma's recipes" section (yawn).  

Actually, there are quite a few women, both EC and EO, who participate pretty regularly at ByzCath. I won't claim that there are a lot of 'female topics', but I don't think there are a lot of 'male topics' either. As to the Recipes subforum, which really began as a way to share fasting recipes, the number of males who regularly participate in it make it much broader than a 'female topic'.

Many years,
