San Diego Outdoor Enthusiasts

La Mesa, CA

San Diego Outdoor Enthusiasts

We are an outdoor group comprised of QUALITY, ACTIVE members offering a variety of events, mainly hiking, biking, kayaking, and camping.

New Members - we understand you are checking out SDOE to see if it is a good fit for you.  In order to remain a member, participate in an event within your first 60 days or you are subject to removal from the group.  Thereafter, members are expected to participate at least once each 90 days.


READ the following Guidelines.

The Organizers have established these simple Guidelines.  Members ignoring or violating these guidelines are subject to suspension or removal from SDOE.   


If you request to join SDOE, you will be asked to name the 2 Guidelines that you feel are most important.  


-  FACE PHOTO REQUIRED.   You must have a RECOGNIZABLE FACE PHOTO on your SDOE profile to join and must maintain one as a member. 

 RSVP REQUIRED.   An RSVP is required for events.  No walk-ups or "crashers".  A limit on participants is often set by Event Hosts.  This also includes guests.

-  GUESTS.   Event Hosts may set criteria for guests.  Check the event listing or contact the Event Host if there is a question.  You are responsible for your guest(s).  Stay with your guest during the event. 

-  NO SHOWS.  Change your "RSVP" to "No - Not Attending", as soon as possible if you are subsequently unable to attend an event.  Members who fail to show for event will be marked "NO SHOW" and are subject to removal after 2 NO SHOWS.  A last minute change from “RSVP" to "NO" may be marked as a NO SHOW, particularly if there are members on the Waitlist hoping to participate. 

 DONATION.  The San Diego Outdoor Enthusiasts asks for a voluntary $5 per year donation to help cover expenses.  You may make an online donation here:

NO DRAMA.  We are not psychologists, counselors, or therapists; nor are we a dating site.  Excessive attention-seeking conduct will not be tolerated. Unwanted romantic overtures, harassment, or discomforting behavior are not acceptable.

-  BE PLEASANT and COURTEOUS.  Be nice. Make the events enjoyable.  Thank the host; significant effort is often put into events.  Common courtesy and respect is expected from each member.  Do not expect others to supply equipment or food or other items without prior arrangements.  Offer to fairly compensate drivers in car pools.

San Diego Ladies Hiking, Walking & More!

San Diego, CA

San Diego Ladies Hiking, Walking & More!

This group is for ladies living in San Diego County and looking for new hiking, walking & exercise buddies, to keep active. Sometimes it is a struggle to find people you can rely on to go work out with and get some exercise in and I know for me I am more likely to work out if I have a commitment in place! Let's all help each other out by making more commitments to exercise together! I welcome all women who can commit (no flakes please) to whatever meetup exercise activity interests you the most in this group!

Our meetups will have a variety to choose from: easy, moderate, moderate-hard, hard and some very hard. We will also have walks, work-outs and other activities and even grabbing a coffee before or after! Most hiking/walking areas will be pretty close to San Diego, CA examples: Mission Trails (all of the San Diego 5 peak challenge hikes), Torrey Pines, Iron Mountain, Rancho Penasquitos, Lake Miramar, Poway Lake, Blackmountain and more. However some hosts will post hikes further out.

Please follow us on Instagram @sdhikingladies
We also have a group website:

Please make sure to checkout & support our group's sponsor, who is helping cover some of the yearly costs to keep the group going strong! The Furniture Square (Online Furniture Auction in San Diego): and follow them on Instagram/Facebook for giveaways @thefurnituresquare

By being a member of this group and attending the meetups, you understand that the hosts and I are not professional hikers or guides of any kind. By being a member of this group and/or attending the meetups of this group, you hereby agree to assume all risks and liability that are related to or resulting from any group meetups and activities during meetups. Group Organizer, assistant organizers and other members of the group assume no responsibility or liability, including but not limited to injury or loss of any kind/form due to the use of information you receive from the meetups, or from participating in activities in the meetups. You agree that neither you nor a third party will hold any of the group organizers or members liable for any injury, loss, or damage of any kind to yourself or others as a direct result from anything that has to do with this meetup group. Please also read all information below in the "FAQ's & REMINDERS" section, as there are important details you may need to know before attending a hike!


PROFILE PHOTO: Please make sure to post a photo of YOURSELF, showing your face, as your member profile (instead of your kids, pets, flowers, etc). This helps members identify you during the meetups! Your request to join the group may be declined if you do not have a photo showing your face.

YOUR RSVP: Please take your RSVP seriously and read the hike description thoroughly before RSVP’ing. Way too often we get last minute cancellations. Yes we understand people get sick and things happen, but often times people just don’t feel like going or end up making other plans and cancel last minute. This is not fair to those who are on the wait list and really wanted to go. Please be respectful of this and only RSVP if you can 100% commit! Please note: No-shows or those who cancel from a wait listed event last minute could get removed from a future wait listed event, this will be up to the hosts' discretion.

DESCRIPTION OF HIKES: Please make sure to read the entire description of a hike before you RSVP. We often get people who had no clue how hard a hike was because they did not read the description. Things to look out for are the amount of miles we are hiking, the elevation gain (incline of hike), and other details listed about the hike (rockiness, pace of the group, etc). If you have any questions, be sure to message the host about details before RSVPing!

WHAT TO BRING ON HIKES: Please always bring water on any hike or walk. Wear a high SPF sunscreen. A snack is always good just in case your body needs it. Poles are optional for steeper hikes and very helpful to some.

WHO CAN COME: This is a ladies group only. There is also no pets or children allowed on our hikes, must be 18+ to join.

BRINGING GUESTS: Please do NOT bring a guest unless they are signed up and have RSVP’d for the hike. All hikers should sign up for our group so they can agree to our disclaimer and the details of the hike.

LIMIT OF PEOPLE PER HIKE: Yes we have limits of the amount of people who can go per hike. I sometimes get asked “why” there is a limit for a hike. It is up to the host and how many people they feel comfortable hiking with/leading. As a host, there is a level of responsibility we feel for those hiking with us and we have our limits of how many people we feel comfortable keeping track of and just hiking with in general. Please note: Some hikes will first be set at a higher “max” (example 15 people max) and then will get lowered as people drop out (example: from 15 max to now 12 max). This is done by some hosts because there are almost always cancellations, and we set it high to start as a cushion, knowing there will be multiple cancellations.

WAIT LIST: Please be respectful of the wait list and only show up for hikes that you are on the “going” list to. It is not fair to other group members on the waitlist or the hosts who have there limits, to just show up. As people drop off from the going list, the next person in line on the wait list should be moved to the going list automatically, unless the maximum is set lower. Please make sure you have your meetup app notifications on, as you will be notified if you are moved. Please do not keep yourself on the wait list if you cannot go last minute, since there is a chance people cancel last minute and you may be moved over last minute.

FEES: Yes this hiking group does cost the organizer money to run (meetup charges $99 every 6 months, that’s $200/year). No you are not required to pay if you are in this group, it is a FREE group. However, donations are gladly welcomed and helpful! You can donate even as little as $1 here: https://secure.meetup...

HOSTING: If you are interesting in hosting a hike this year or becoming an official host of the group to host multiple hikes throughout the year, please reply back to this email or message Michella for more details!

2020 CHALLENGE: If you haven’t heard already, we are doing a 2020 Hiking Challenge this year! Complete 20 new hikes in this group, that you have never been on before, and receive a prize for your completion! Due to COVID19 this challenge will be extended into 2021.

San Diegans over 50

San Diego, CA

San Diegans over 50

San Diegans over 50 is all about singles and couples safely socializing around the Western part of San Diego County.  Our meetup began with a small group of single women friends in Pacific Beach, then expanded to singles organized by a male Navy chief, who expanded membership to both men and women. Two more organizers expanded us to include a broader range of San Diego County territory, which spanned La Mesa on the East to Del Mar on the North and all around the City of San Diego. I am the 5th organizer and am expanding our membership to include socially active singles, widowed, couples, and married adults over 50 who need to get out and socialize. 

The Covid-19 Pandemic has temporarily stopped our social life. But over time, we have met in restaurants and night clubs for socializing, gone dancing, attended music performances, and gone on walks through older communities throughout San Diego County. Over the coming months, we will return to those activities as more of us get vaccinated and feel safe. It is my hope that by Fall of 2021, we will return to normal.

When you apply for membership, please post a portrait so we can recognize you at our meetups. And for your name, please use your first name followed by an single letter; for example, if your name is Joe and your last name is Smith, then you could post your name as Joe S. Or, if you wish to remain mysterious, Joe X. We want to keep you safe.

The reason we collect membership dues is to pay to use this platform to announce meetups. The organizer (me) has to pay at least $100 every year. I have to paid the day I accepted ownership as Organizer. To share in this burden, I ask each of you to pay $5.00 dues to remain a member.  If the payment is an issue, put $5.00 in an envelope, seal the flap, write your name on the outside of the envelope, and hand it to me.

Thank you all for hanging in there during Covid and welcome!

Your Organizer,

Ron May

I Wanted To Eat There, Just Not Alone! (SD 20's & 30's)

San Diego, CA

I Wanted To Eat There, Just Not Alone! (SD 20's & 30's)

Tired of going out to eat by yourself? New to San Diego? From San Diego and looking for some new friends? You’ve come to the right place! If you are a 20 or 30-something and looking for a solid group of fellow foodies, sign up! This group specializes in dining and events with food/drinks.

Other groups say they are “different” but for an accurate answer ask our lovely members! This is by far the most well-connected, organic group on this app. After most events, we usually go for drinks elsewhere. I can honestly say that our members are some of my closest friends! It truly is not just a group, but a lifestyle.

All meetups are in-person so attendees must feel comfortable enough to do so. Stay safe and, of course, enjoy.

This group was made with the intention to make long-lasting memories and form a solid group of friends.

If you would like to host an event please message the organizer directly and provide a short description as to what ideas you may have.

DISCLAIMER: Please note that this is a private group so a photo and a brief questionnaire are required to join. Must be between 21-39 years of age to join. Group organizer(s) reserve the right to add or remove members at any time and for any reason. Approval to enter the group is entirely at the discretion of the organizer(s). Missed RSVPs, inactive status, and unacceptable conduct may result in dismissal. By submitting for and maintaining group membership, you agree to this disclaimer and you agree to release and hold harmless the Organizer, all Event Hosts and fellow members of any and all liability. During the pandemic please note that if you are not comfortable in situations that may include lack of social distancing, members/guests not wearing masks, do not attend in-person events until you feel safe to do so. If you are not feeling well and have upper respiratory symptoms DO NOT attend events. All events are food-related and you will need to remove your mask in order to eat or drink, more than likely less than 6’ apart. In short, get vaccinated!

San Diego Bisexual Women

San Diego, CA

San Diego Bisexual Women

Welcome to the San Diego Bisexual Women (SDBW) Meetup group. This is a place for bisexual women to meet, socialize and connect. We have more than 900 members and our membership is always growing.  

Being a bisexual woman provides a unique opportunity to explore sexual identity and relationships with a flexible attitude. Some of us are are single, some are in a monogamous relationship and some are in an open relationship(s). We celebrate our bisexuality and the wonderful opportunities that come along with it.

If you are simply exploring your bisexual curiosity, don’t be scared! This is a great place to meet friendly, open and interesting women who you can be free to express yourself with.  Please join us for conversation, friendship and fun!

Who can join?

Anyone who identifies as a woman, including transwomen, genderqueer people, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified, regardless of your relationship status. 

We strive for inclusivity!  However, since we want to keep the focus of this group about women, each bisexual woman must join individually - not as part of a couple.  That said, some events allow and encourage members to bring their partners, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. Events will be noted as to whether or not partners and/or friends and family are invited.  If unsure, feel free to ask the Event Host.

Please pay special attention to our rules for membership: 

1) PHOTO -  It is required that you submit a recent identifiable face photo of yourself with the membership request.  This should be a photo of yourself only and please no nudity, face filters, hats, costumes or sunglasses, etc.   If you are concerned about privacy, make sure to edit your settings to "hide" your meetup groups from other viewers

2) Include a REAL name on your profile (first name is ok)

3) Answer all of the profile questions thoughtfully and completely

4) You must be at least 21 years old

5) Agree to abide by our Code of Conduct:

If your membership application does not include any of the above items your application will be declined, so make sure you complete it correctly.

Please note, in order to avoid being removed from the group please log in to show your interest in staying in the group, at least once a month.  Any member who has not logged in for 6 consecutive months may automatically be removed. 

RSVP/No Show Policy

In order to provide the most amazing events to the group, we ask that you please change your RSVP at least 24 hours in advance if you realize you cannot make an event.  Members who are "no shows" for 3 events will be removed from the group.  Members who continually change their RSVP from "Going" to "Not Going" at the last minute may be removed from the group as well. 


We regularly host events at our homes and to better safeguard ourselves we need to meet every member in person before you will be eligible to attend this type of event.  Not to worry though, we have plenty of events hosted in public for you to attend to become a fully vetted member of our group.   If you're unable to come to one of the upcoming events being hosted in a public space, please suggest a date and time to meet up with one of the Organizers and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Patriot Women for Lifelong Friendships

San Diego, CA

Patriot Women for Lifelong Friendships

We are women (only) 35+ who are free thinkers and Patriots who love our country. First and foremost, we are here looking to make life-long friends with like-minded women. We are not a political group though we may lean toward those discussions from time to time. We do however, believe in free speech, the 2nd amendment, free and fair elections, anti-cancel culture, and we love being free. We want to get out and meet other women with similar viewpoints. We get it…we know what’s really going on in the world and we are not alone. Sometimes we just want to vent to others who get it!

It’s time to get out and patron those establishments that have survived this past year. If your friends are glued to the lies of the mainstream media and you’ve lost some because of your views or just want to be able to openly talk with other women that get it, then this is the group for you.

Once the group is established, we’ll be planning in-person fun events (following the cities guidelines of course) such as brunches, lunches, dinners, wine tasting, walks, hikes, etc. California be fully open June 15th so I’ll be planning the first event for after that date.

We also have a Facebook version of this group meant for discussions and sharing information. Events will only be posted on Meetup, not on Facebook for now.

Please note, anyone who is a no-show at 2 events, will be removed from the group. Please give us the courtesy of updating your RSVP if you are unable to attend, even if it's last minute.
