What we're about

Flak·ey --- adj., to be unreliable, and/or absent-minded, flighty, fickle. Generally irresponsible

Tired of the flakey group singles/friends scene in Los Angeles?

Ever show up to a Meetup event, just to find that the organizer is a no-show and only a few other group members have bothered to attend?

This group is all about those who are serious about meeting new friends, having a good time with old friends, meeting potential dates/mates and having a good time doing it.

We'll have happy hours, wine tastings, potlucks, dining out events, hiking trips - the possibilities are endless.

The point is to interact and mingle, so any event that lends itself to that idea is welcome.

The only requirement is that you are an individual who is down-to-earth, intelligent, and humorous and wants the very best life has to offer.

Individuals who realize that this group is only going to be as good as they make it.

Please encourage your friends to join also - I promise this will be the best singles/friends Meetup group you could ever hope to join.

Please, only join if you have a strong desire to attend the events.

Because we are trying to weed out the flakey types, there are no "MAYBE" RSVP's. Members who RSVP "YES" and flake out on two events (or one if you are committed to a fee), will be deleted from the group.
