Thank you for your interest in our group. Please realize, before sending a request, that this is a group for people 45 years of age and older. If you are not yet 45, please, do not send the request. We are trying to minimize the age gap between the members of our group. We will wait for you patiently until your 45th birthday arrives :)
DEAR PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS,
This group is NOT closed to new members BUT we are temporarily restricting our membership to allow current members to become acquainted with each other and to balance the male/female ratio.
The 45+ SBSS group prides itself in providing a venue for long lasting memberships to take place. We accomplish this goal by monitoring the number of new members that join our family and allowing for those connections to take place.
If your request to join is not accepted the first time, we encourage you to try again at a later time.
AND NOW, ABOUT US :)...
The 45+ South Bay Social Singles (45+SBSS) is all about making friends with other singles, getting to know them and becoming familiar with each other in a safe and fun environment.
Since its foundation, the 45+ has created long lasting relationships of many kinds. Although this is not a match-making program, we celebrate the romantic connections that have taken place in the past and are sure to continue in the future. Members that fall under this category are encouraged to remain in the group, even after they get marry.
We pride ourselves in considering this group part of our extended family and once a member of our family, you will ALWAYS be a member of our family… Unless you do something really "nutty" in which case we will have to let you go.
We monitor our membership and accept new members only after we feel comfortable that the previously accepted members have accommodated to us, attended events, etc…
Every few months, we remove members who have not participated in any events for more than 3 months, are constantly changing their RSVP at the last minute or have more than 3 "no shows." Then we accept new members.
Please, it is very important that you read the section named "Pages" so that you become familiar with our rules and regulations to decide whether or not we are a fit for you before requesting for membership.
We do a variety of events: hikes, live theater, happy hours, karaoke, museums, music in the park, dancing… We are always looking for new ways to improve to create a more diverse calendar, to listen to members' suggestions and to do a lot of research to find fun activities to perform.
If you get accepted into our group, give us a try by attending several of our events. You will not regret it.
Hope to meet you soon!
"Amendment" to our policies:
There is a strong group made of few members that have been loyal to our events, attending many of them and/or helping us organizing them as volunteers. These members have also shown a great deal of responsibility by showing up to those events they signed up for or have changed their RSVP few times and with enough time to allow others from the wait list to sign up. They are committed to make this group a nice place to come to.
We reward these fabulous people by having preference to events when their names are in the waiting list. The organizers of the events can decide which member can be moved up the list to attend events.
Thank you and hope to meet you in future events :)
