What we're about

Welcome to Singles Odyssey's Meetup Group, a group catering to singles, newly single people, and almost single people ~grin~. We are all about singles! Are you looking to meet & socialize with other singles in the area? Our group is filled with friendly, genuine, sociable, warm, happy and fun loving singles ranging in age from late 20’s to 50’s. It would be a pleasure to have you join us. Anyone over 21 is welcome. THE MORE THE MERRIER!

We host a variety of singles events, giving singles many flavors of venues to choose from, nightlife to car shows, from Long Beach to San Juan Capistrano, and have been hosting fun singles events catering to single people for over 5 years and will continue to do so. These events usually draw anywhere from 20-600+ friendly and attractive singles. Our events are hosted to offer you the opportunity to meet, mix, mingle with other singles, make new friends and have fun with the possibility of meeting that “special someone”. We cater to the singles in the So Cal area. Our events do not have a meat market or a pick up bar atmosphere.

We cordially invite you and your single friends to become members of this friendly, fun loving, social singles group. The purpose of this group is to make and build friendships as well as personal relationships.

For the FULL Singles Odyssey Experience go to http://www.SinglesOdyssey.org . You can directly access all of our on-line resources from there including YouTube Videos from our events and more.
