Finding Female Friends Past Fifty® SouthBay (FFF>F)
Manhattan Beach, CA
Finding Female Friends Past Fifty (FFF>F) is a group of seasoned, interesting, and supportive women. If you're looking for friends, you've found the right place! Many women find ourselves at this age without the social connections we yearn for, and finding friends in our age group can be a challenge.
If you join our group with an open heart, sense of adventure, and fun spirit, you may find that even after a few events, you will begin to make connections and form friendships.
Please take a moment to review our guidelines prior to your request to join:
MEETUP PROFILE: Our group is growing quickly and it is important for us to be able to connect and communicate with our members. And as a group of women, we are sensitive to being able to know who we are communicating with, as well as being able to recognize you and call you by name at our events. As a result, we require a few specific items regarding your Meetup profile:
Name: We require that you use your actual first name. You do not have to enter a last name, but your first name needs to be what you are addressed by. Profile names that appear to be obscuring identity will not be approved.
Profile: We require a close-up photo that shows your face, head and shoulders with no obscuring elements like sunglasses, a low hat or a mask. Please check your profile picture before you request membership. If your picture does not meet requirements, your request will not be approved. If you need help updating your picture, click here: https://help.meetup.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002878591-How-do-I-change-my-profile-photo
Membership Fees: Meetup charges our group a subscription cost every 6 months for us to be a part of their platform. To cover this, we ask that every member pay $5 to cover the cost of these fees. You can conveniently give your $5 to your event host at your next event. You will only pay this fee once, then we won't ask again for at least 1 year. Depending upon how many active members we have and what Meetup's subscription charges are, we should not have to ask for additional fees beyond your first payment for at least 1 year, likely longer.
Notifications: As a member, it is essential that you have your Email Updates and Push Notifications turned on in Settings both on your desktop computer and your phone app. It is also necessary to check back frequently in the days before a scheduled event in case there are any changes or if confirmation is requested. If you need help changing your settings, you can use the following links: Turn on Email Notifications: https://help.meetup.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002879591-Editing-my-email-settings Turn on Push Notifications: https://help.meetup.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002862972-Editing-my-push-notification-settings . PLEASE NOTE: If we are not able to reach you when needed, you may be removed from the group.
ATTENDANCE: Attendance and punctuality are vital for us to create an environment where friendships can flourish; please note that we take attendance seriously. If you are unsure if you can make it to an event, please do not sign up; instead, wait to see if there is room last minute. Not following the guidelines below can result in removal from future events and/or from the group.
Tardiness: It is important to be respectful of everyone's time, including restaurant staff, event staff, and event organizers who often plan in advance to ensure our group can be accommodated, etc. Please plan ahead to ensure you arrive on time. Excessive tardiness of over 10 minutes may result in you being removed from future events, and/or from the group.
RSVPs: As our group expands, we typically have several ladies on the waitlist for our events. We ask that if you need to change your RSVP, you do so no later than 48 hours prior to the event. This will provide members on the waitlist some notice that they are able to go to the event and allow them to adjust their plans accordingly. We understand that life happens and sometimes there are last-minute changes; however, any sudden drop-outs with less than 48 hours notice will result in you being removed from any events you are attending for the next week. This applies to our waitlist as well. If you are on the waitlist, it is assumed you intend to come should a spot open up. If your plans change, please edit your response to 'Not Going' at least 48 hours in advance.
No-Shows: A lot of work and coordination goes into planning an event, and part of what makes events fun is having everyone show up! All event coordinators can be reached via message or email through the Meetup app. If you are signed up for an event and you do not attend, you will be marked as "No Show". If this occurs with no communication from you, you will be removed from any events you are attending for the next week. After three no shows, you will be removed from the group.
*****FFF>F CANCELLATION POLICY: Your host is a fellow member who has put a lot of effort into this event! Out of consideration to her and to fellow members on the waitlist, please cancel at least 48 hours in advance if you can no longer attend. The consequence for not doing so is removal from any events you are going to for one week.
Event Fee Requirements: You may find that some of our events require an event fee to be paid within a certain amount of time. If you are not able to make the payment within the allocated amount of time, you will be moved to “Not Going” to the event. If you RSVP for multiple fee-required events and have a track record of not paying within the allocated amount of time, the event organizer can move you to “Not Going” at their discretion without giving you the allocated amount of time to pay.
ATTITUDE: We pride ourselves in creating a welcoming, positive, and inclusive environment for our members. We are here to have fun and enjoy our time together. As such, the following behaviors are not allowed and we reserve the right to remove anyone from the group for violating these expectations.
~ Negativity: Our time together is reserved for uplifting and supporting each other. So please come with a positive attitude and leave any negativity at home.
~ Drama: We are grown women; drama in any form is unnecessary and will not be tolerated.
~ Business/Networking: Please leave your work hat at home. We are here to make friends, and not be sold to or recruited.

PhirSe- New Beginning
Phirse is a global Support group for Divorced, Separated after marriage and Widowed.
To join this group you must be:
2. Willing to to connect with others with similar life experiences to socialize and make friends.
3.NOT a dating group.
You can join from anywhere in USA, Canada, Australia or EU.
FYI, 90% of the members are of South Asian origin.
Let's get together for a better life post-divorce, separation, or loss of a spouse. We know how hard life can be during and after such life changing experience for us and our kids. We know it’s not easy to feel this pain and grief for those who didn't travel this path and not even our close family/friends. We will organize events that will help us support each other. If you have kids, we know how important it must be for you to support them. If you do not have kids, you are probably lonely and can find friends here. It's a new beginning to a beautiful life.
We host dinners, movies, hiking, clubbing, dancing, singing, picnics, kids, and cultural events. If you would like to see any events of your interest, please share your ideas with the organizers. You are also welcome to host any events you like. We encourage and appreciate the initiative to keep the group engaged and energized.
Make life better for all members by supporting each other with care and respect.
We pride ourselves in the diversity of our amazing membership. Currently, our group has members from multiple country of origins, races, ethnicity and color. We want to continue to be known for our inclusiveness. To maintain a supportive environment for all members, we abide by certain guidelines, both in our face to face (in-person and virtual) interactions and in our online messages.
PhirSe Meetup Guidelines:
1. Respect and care for each other
2. This is a support group, NOT a dating group.
3. Maintain a fun environment.
4. If you want to host an event, please let an admin know and we can make you an event organizer in Meetup. So that members have an opportunity to attend multiple events, please avoid any scheduling conflicts between events 🙏
5. Note that during this time of ‘Shelter in Place’, we may schedule simultaneous virtual events in order to accommodate the timing preferences for as many members as possible.
6. As we have only one group zoom account, if there are two events scheduled at the same time, please feel free to use your personal virtual account.
PhirSe Chat Guidelines:
1. Please avoid religious and political discussions and posts (even if they are just jokes) in the group messages. As mentioned, we have members from very diverse backgrounds and we do not want to inadvertently offend anyone on these topics.
2. Please avoid sending private messages to any member before meeting them in events. If a member requests that you stop personal messaging, please respect their wishes.
3. If you feel strongly about any post, please send a personal message to the group admin or directly to the person who sent the post, instead of responding to the group, where all members can view an exchange of conflict. Admins will try to manage resolutions offline and we ask that you do the same.

1. We do not accept ex-es in the group. Whoever joins first says in the group.

SGV LA + OC Chinese & Global Foodies
Monterey Park, CA
Let's Eat the World! While our prime focus will be Chinese restaurants in the San Gabriel Valley (from the 710 Freeway to the West, the 60 Freeway to the South, 210 Freeway to the North, and the 57 Freeway to the East), we will venture all over the LA and OC counties as well as parts beyond. We will also explore global cuisines from Japanese to Sri Lankan to Nigerian to French and more.
Be prepared to share the dishes family-style, as most events will be designated as Family Style Dining. However, there will be occasions where each individual will order their own entree/main dish. Be sure to bring cash, as many hole-in-the-wall places do not accept credit cards.
New Members: You will be given a 3-month free trial membership to our group. By the 90th day, if you like to continue being a member of our group, we will need you to pay annual membership dues of $3.88. These membership dues will be used to pay the semi-annual dues to MeetUp.com for our group. A portion of the membership dues will also go to WePay, which is the payment system used by MeetUp.com to collect funds from members for membership dues, for charged events, etc.
REMEMBER, FOR EVERY EVENT YOU SIGN UP PLEASE FOLLOW THESE RULES:
1. If you need to cancel your RSVP, please do so 48 hours before the start time of the event.
2. For most events, paid members to get first priority for available spots for those events. Trial members may be required to make a deposit in order to get an available spot for those events.
3. New members of the group who No Show to their first event will be banned from the group.
4. If you are on the Wait List, then it is YOUR responsibility to monitor your status on the Wait List and update your RSVP accordingly. If you didn't get an email or notification from the MeetUp app about being moved from the Wait List to the Going List, then you need to modify your account settings in order to receive these notifications.
5. Please provide the organizer with your contact number at the time of signing, so that the organizer will have your number in the event the organizer needs to contact you about the event. If you don't, then your RSVP will be canceled.
6. For events designated as Family-Style Dining: Dining for this event has been designated as Family-Style. The food bill will be split evenly between all attendees. Attendees will be responsible for paying for their own beverages. Please note that flexibility is an important part of family-style dining, and if you want to take a chance on attending, you have to be amenable to what the group/AO will order. You don't have to eat everything that is ordered, but everyone pays equally, whether you eat everything or not. Most of the dishes we order will be at least moderately spicy. If this definition of Family-Style Dining doesn't feel comfortable, this may not be the right type of event for you. In addition, if you have ANY dietary restrictions or ingredients you do not wish to consume, then you may want to skip this event. Ordering dishes modified to fit someone's dietary needs or personal tastes will alter the true flavors of those dishes for the rest of the group.
7. Be sure to bring CASH to pay for your portion of the bill.
8. COVID-19 Rules for attending any of our events: Attend if you have received at least one Pfizer or Moderna, or Janssen J&J shot and will provide proof of vaccine shots by CDC's V-Safe passport displayed on your smartphone, or show a photo or printed copy of your Covid-19 vaccination card. Also attend, if you are comfortable with the fact that we will be seated at tables that will provide at least 1 to 2 feet distance from the person sitting on either side of you. Do not attend if you are experiencing any symptoms such as fever (I will have a forehead thermometer on hand to check everyone's temperature), cough, runny nose/sinus congestion. Everyone will have their own communal fork and spoon to serve themselves food -- do not use them to eat from. Arrive wearing a face mask - remove it only when eating or drinking - if we are waiting for food, please put your mask back on, and when you leave to the table for the restroom, etc. Watch your conversation volume to avoid spraying your saliva over the table and food. I apologize for all these rules, but we must be as safe as possible to prevent the spread of Covid-19. If you cannot agree with these rules, please do not attend.
Build Your Self-Confidence in Relationships and Life
Los Angeles, CA
This group is for learning how to improve your communication and making better connections.
Life is not a single-player game. "Let's play this game together" seems to be the overall motto of life. However, sometimes the frictions and upsets between people can discourage one from communicating and connecting up with others.
Have you ever witnessed or experienced relationships breaking apart? Have you ever been criticized, lied to, or betrayed? If you have, then it's no wonder that a part of you may be reluctant to communicate and make new connections. After all, you do not want to be hurt again. I totally understand!
However, life is not fun unless it's played with others. You simply cannot experience the joys of life fully without relationships or being a part of a group.
That's what this group is about. This group is for you to learn how to communicate well and make connections. It is about how to fully enjoy your conversations and how to make the right kind of connections that can last. Hopefully, as a result of this group, you will communicate more, communicate better, and make friends and relationships that last a lifetime.
We will learn tools in this group and gain practical knowledge about how to communicate better and connect with others. We will have free meetings to do that.
All of our meetings are online right now, but when the whole virus business is no longer so much of a concern, we will also have free in-person meetings.
Are you interested?
If you are, join this group now!
Feel free to contact me, the group organizer, Lydia at 818-427-0314. I have been helping people for over 20 years now at the Dianetics & Scientology life improvement center, a non-profit, self improvement education center, and I specialize in helping people with communication skills. I look forward to meeting you!
This group is created by the Dianetics & Scientology life improvement center.

The Keys to Overcoming Loneliness and Depression
Los Angeles, CA
Social isolation can lead to feelings of loneliness, alienation, depression, and other negative emotions.
What can you do to combat the isolation and the negative emotions that come with it?
Seeking out contacts by social media, such as with this Meetup group, may be part of the solution, but there can be a deeper issue at the root of your isolation. For instance, why are you not in a relationship? Why are you losing control of your emotions so easily? Why do you not have much self esteem?
What are the underlying issues that you are not solving?
In this meetup group, we will discuss and learn tools to help you make connections with yourself and other people. You will get to know yourself better, learn to love yourself, and also learn to have the relationship you have always wanted to have.
This group will be your weapon against SELF-IMPOSED ISOLATION, which is exacerbated by the social isolation. This group will help you deal with the real underlying issues.
This group will be led by a professional life improvement consultant with over 20 years of professional experience helping people overcoming negative emotions.
This group is created by the Dianetics and Scientology life improvement center.
Peeps of LA & Beyond 🚀 (20s/30s Social)
Los Angeles, CA
Welcome to the nexus! For folks who may be new this group is going to be an Eastside County or West Orange County focused millennial-aimed group for us to get off our computers and phones to go network and meetup in real life. Over the years I've had a lot of good experiences doing various young professionals events all throughout the east side of Downtown whether in Pasadena, Arcadia, San Gabriel, or Arts District and I hope for y'all to join us too.
The kinds of events you will see on here will be a sampling of what LA has to offer, from mixers and bar or coffee crawls, art nights, trips, game nights, movies, classes for archery or dance, or anything else that members might find interesting (and please send recommendations). Note that the reason I call this group a Nexus is because it will have a lot of events or places that I've found through meetup and now want to share with like-minded folks who might be in the same place on life.
So if you have any recommendations let me know and feel free to send ideas or spots in the area. Hope to see y'all soon!
We want to create a safe community where people can mingle and connect naturally. This can be a slow process regarding vetting new members to help us avoid a lot of issues that the other meetups have to deal with. Please understand that this vetting can include up to in person referrals because unfortunately too many bad apples have taken advantage of a lot of the other groups out there. So apologies if this may seem super strict! <br>
PS: Meeting new people is all about respect and personal safety is crucial, so that being in mind, so personal conduct is key as we are all a bunch of strangers in public settings and listening to others should always be maintained. With that in mind if any member is harassing you online or in real life that you haven't met then please inform an organizer so we can act on said individuals including and up to a ban from the group. Please no bar fights or extra drama :P
Disclaimer: Group organizers and assistant organizers assume no liability in any of the activities you participate in. By being a member of this group you hereby agree to assume all risks and liability related to or resulting from any group functions. You agree that neither you nor any third party will hold any of the group's leaders, officers, or representatives liable for injury, loss, or damage to your own person or any members of your family, friends, acquaintances, children, pets or property, arising directly or as a consequence from a group activity. You also agree that your membership of this group is based on an "at will" basis. <br>

South Bay Social Group for Women
Over the past year I have been looking for a group of women who support each other. Women who want to play, hike, have drinks (coffee or wine), volunteer in the community and anything else we can think of.
Too often we get lost in the "to-do's" of life and sometimes need to encourage each other to come out of our structured lives to play a little and remember who we are. We are women that are stronger when we support each other.
Now, with life beginning to feel a bit more normal, I'm creating this group to find other women who want to join me in talking over a glass of wine or mug of coffee, going for a hike, or even volunteering in the community.
If this sounds like something that interests you, I would love to meet you at the next event!
In order for all of us (leaders and women) to enjoy ourselves, here are some ground rules:
Some events may specify limits. Those will be clearly noted when needed. If an event has a limited number of people, please make sure your RSVP is correct. If you can not come, please give a 24 hour courtesy and cancel (change your RSVP) so someone else in the group can take that spot. I understand people get sick and cars break down, but if this request is repeatedly broken, you will be removed from the group. Think, "3 strikes rule."
When you RSVP, please remember the group organizer (and the rest of the group) waits for you and continually checks messages before moving the group forward. Please be considerate and change your RSVP if you are not coming at any point.
If you RSVP to an event, come to the event but choose to do your own thing outside of the group, this will be considered a "no show."
Be kind and courteous. We're all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let's treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.
Please avoid "hot topics" that are largely debated. We get enough of that everywhere else in the world. This is a place to have fun with each other and let go of the stress. Please respect that others come together for this reason. If someone starts a topic you don't want to be a part of, feel free to walk away from them or kindly let them know it's not something you want to talk about. It's ok to not want to talk about something with someone.
Bullying will not be tolerated. Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn't allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity will not be tolerated and lead to immediate removal of the group.
All of these things are just so at the end of the day, we can all have a good time.
Los Angeles Grass Volleyball Group
Los Angeles, CA
ABOUT US: We’re a fun and diverse group who enjoy the workout, laidback atmosphere, and competitiveness of outdoor volleyball. Come join us and bring that positive attitude and competitive spirit! We typically play on grass and occasionally on sand and indoor.
LEVEL: To keep the games injury free, competitive, and fun for everyone, we will be limiting membership to intermediate level players and above. At the intermediate level, you are expected to have learned basic volleyball skills and be able to keep a rally going. You are also expected to know some basic court positioning and which balls are yours to get. You may not be allowed to sign up in future games or removed from group if your level of play does not meet requirements. If you are a beginner player, there are other meetup groups in the area that do sponsor all level plays. If you are unsure of your level, have not played for a while, or interested in volleyball clinics, feel free to reach out to the organizer to discuss a plan.
LOCATION: We typically set up in northern LA areas of Glendale, Burbank, Pasadena, and surrounding cities.
EQUIPMENT: For outdoor games, we use Park & Sun Spectrum volleyball nets system and official Wilson AVP and Mikasa balls. If you own a net system and would like to host some games, reach out to the organizer.
COST: This is a free meetup event but small donations are always welcome to help with equipment cost and meetup dues.
FORMATS & TEAMS: We play 4s, 5s, or 6s on full size courts and 2s or 3s on reduced size courts. Game formats and team size depends on interests and number of sign ups. We will follow indoor rules for 5s and 6s play and beach rules for 4s, 3s, and 2s. You are expected to know both rules and call your own faults. If there’s any disagreement, the point will be redone.
In the beginning, players are allowed to form or pick their teams. We typically do round-robin games or best of 3 games if there are only 2 teams. Based on the results of the first round-robin games, we may adjust or randomize the teams to keep the next games competitive and give everyone a chance to play with different players.
RSVP & NO-SHOWS: RSVP is required if you’re planning on playing so we know how many nets and balls to bring. If you know you can’t make it, you must update your RSVP at least 30 mins before meetup starts. If you are bringing guests, please ensure that they are experienced and aware of the rules of this meetup. If there are people on the waitlist, priority will be given to members with meetup history. Members with multiple no-shows will not be allowed to sign up in the future or removed from the group at the organizer’s discretion.
GROUNDS FOR REMOVAL FROM GROUP: please note that per organizer’s discretion, you may be removed from the group for the following reasons: 1) too many last-minute cancellations or no shows; 2) habitually late; 3) disrespecting other members; 4) playing level does not meet requirements (see above); 5) promoting outside events without approval from the organizer (i.e. other volleyball meetups); 5) inactivity
DISCLAIMER: By joining, you understand that you and no one else will be responsible for your own safety. This meetup group and members/guests will not be responsible for any injury or damage from attending the meetup. If you are bringing a guest, please ensure that you review these expectations with them.
All members must be at least 18 years old.

FRIENDSHIP & FABULOUS PLACES. Females 40+ ❤️
Los Angeles, CA
YOU are an LA woman over 40! And WE are adventurous, imaginative, enthusiastic women over 40 who are insatiably curious about the people and places that make up our magical mosaic called Los Angeles. We want to go where we haven’t gone and do what we haven’t done. And we’re as diverse as this city we love! You are welcome as you are, and no one is judged.
Together, we’ll deep-dive into arts, music, dance, comedy, history, architecture, variety arts, craft fairs, antique districts, flea markets, local festivals, and all manner of culture and counterculture. Of course, we’ll find fun and fabulous places to eat and drink along our way. We want our activities to be as varied as our membership.
We're also extremely proud of our three signature event series:
1) Cocktails in Unique Places (CUP) -- our signature event, 2) A historical based event, and 3) our casual Neighborhood Nights where we can relax, connect, and build great friendships.
And your ideas are always welcome! YOU can be an event organizer! We're always happy to help you make your event sparkle!
Some events will be free. But for others, we may ask for a small fee to cover Meetup expenses. (And of course, if you like our group vibe, you’re always welcome to make a donation on your own!) Some events may have limits on the number of people the venue will allow. But we’ll always try to have a waitlist.
Just a few rules to remember:
For the safety of all our members, we require a clear profile photo OF YOU ALONE, OF YOUR FACE (facing the camera!) NO HATS OR SUNGLASSES! -- SORRY, BUT NO EXCEPTIONS!
If you RSVP and then don’t cancel more than 24 hours before at 4 events, we’ll have to show you out of the group for four months. But that won’t happen because you’ll update your RSVPs and cancel with at least 24 hours notice! Right?
And if you RSVP and we never see you that’s a NO SHOW even if you were there and did your own thing. 3 no-shows and we will remove you from the group for six-months.
No-shows and Last-minute cancellations put our ability to book terrific venues at risk! Your event organizers and sister members will appreciate your courtesy especially when there's a wait list.
Be kind and welcoming to everyone you meet here. We ask that you never contact group members you haven’t met in person. Don’t send group emails for any reason. Be respectful in the comments.
So come join us! There’s a world of new friends here that can’t wait to meet you!

OC Singles who Mingle 45+
Hey Hey!! Welcome to OC Singles who Mingle 45+!! Thank you for checking us out! Please note that this is a private and exclusive social group for meeting people and new friends in-person and face to face. Being single doesn't mean you have to be alone. Let's meet and hang out and have fun with other like-minded individuals.
We are NOT a dating site, but a place to meet other individuals. Not everyone in this group is looking for a partner, so keep that in mind. We also know that there's bound to be a connection at some point in time, especially if you get off the couch and come join us at an event or two or three. But, please NO CREEPY vibes, Stalking or hook-ups. Also, please keep any drama and gossip OUTSIDE of this group.
Because we are a private and exclusive group, we are selective with which "Requests to Join" are accepted and will remove those members who we later decide are not a good fit for various reasons and also those who are not actively attending events. Unlike some groups who only care about the size of the group, we care about quality over quantity.
We are a Brand New Group of fun adults, in their mid 40s thru 60s, who enjoy mingling together while making new quality friendships and enjoying social activities and events like:
Bike Riding, Tactical Training, Hiking, Walking, Axe Throwing, Karaoke, Dining Out, Happy Hour, Comedy Clubs, Road Trips, Int'l & Domestic Travel, Potlucks, House Parties, Get Togethers and anything else that looks like fun. It’s limitless. We don't just "say"... we "do". If you’re interested in hosting an event, let me know! Yay!!
Our goal is to create and build a solid group of hopefully close friends, like a second family maybe, that you look forward to seeing again and again at the next event. We want you to feel like this group is your home and that you are welcomed and fit right in.
We want you smiling, laughing and having a great time and a great experience at whatever event of ours that you choose to attend! You'll notice that we not only have a LOT of events per week, but various kinds because we happen to LOVE variety! Please feel free to give me suggestions and let's see what we can come up with. Hey, this is the second half of our lives - let's enjoy it, together! Life is short!
We care about honest, respectful, loyal, trustworthy quality people. We want to create a safe space for everyone, especially for those who desire it. If there is ever an issue, please private message me.

A few housekeeping items:
*All members must have a clear and recognizable picture (i.e. no memes, cartoons, pets, kids, landscapes etc. You know who you are) so that we can identify you at events. Those without one are subject to removal from the group.
*Strict Zero Tolerance Policy: We ask that you actively and enthusiastically participate in our events, especially with the time, efforts and occasionally additional monies that it takes for us to put an event together. We ask that you respect all organizers, hosts, and attendees. This includes honoring your RSVPs and letting us know if you can’t make it as soon as you are aware. Those who have 3+ "no show" or frequently RSVP and then cancel will be subject to removal.
*We ask that you do not contact (private message) members you haven’t met in real life. Exceptions include inquiring about group events with the prospective hosts and organizers.
*Keep in mind that this is NOT a dating group, altho it may happen if you meet and there is a mutual connection. If things work out, great!! But if it doesn't, please keep any drama outside.

LA Geeky Fun Times
Los Angeles, CA
Why hello there!
Thanks so much for your interest in our fun little group. Our purpose? To find fellow like-minded individuals who enjoy the same things we all do: movies, TV shows, books, video games, board games, card games, music, concerts (when those eventually come back), some outdoors stuff (fear the day star!!!!), popular franchises like Star Wars or LotR, and much more. Or maybe you just want to find people to vent to about the final season of Game of Thrones. I know I'd like to!
Who should join? Anyone and everyone - since we are all home right now it doesn’t matter where you’re located! We welcome people of different ethnicities, cultures, backgrounds, sexual preferences, religious preferences, etc. All we ask is that you're super cool to everyone (like, don't be a weird creeper or problematic) and be accepting of others. Fandom and passions for hobbies know no bounds, so if you are into the same hobbies and passions we all are then you've found your peoples!
Due to current events, a decent chunk of everything will be virtual, but I will constantly be looking for ways to have safe outdoor gatherings (drive-in movies, for example) ...again, safety first and all that jazz.
Some "rules" (I hate to do it, but this is the Internet):
• No hate speech
• No abuse/bullying
• No threats, doxxing
• This isn't Tinder, so please don't treat it as such
• If you will partake in alcohol or other controlled substances during events for this group, please do so in a responsible way. There definitely are levels of inebriation/intoxication that aren't cute or good/safe for the group
• Be excellent to each other
• If on camera, make sure your "cash and prizes" are covered before standing up O_o
Recovering from a Divorce or Breakup
Your divorce or breakup can be devastating, and I understand that, but the important thing now is to move on EMOTIONALLY. That's why I created this group.
I want to help everyone who is still hurting from a divorce or breakup to get over and move on from the betrayal or disappointment. You CAN do it. You just need some help and tools.
And to provide for that help and tools, we are going to have meetups. We are going to have some free classes about life improvement, we are going to read some self-help books, and we are going to help you regain your self-confidence, happiness, stability and mental wellness, for these might have taken a hit due to the divorce or breakup.
But most importantly, we are going to help you work on having a better future—a better mindset, a better lifestyle, better mental health, and a better future relationship.
We will have free weekly webinars open to everyone who is a member of this group.
Join this group now and let's get started.
Call or text me (Lydia) at 818-427-0314 if you have any questions.
This group is created by the Dianetics & Scientology life improvement center.
Family of Friends South Bay Social Meetup
El Segundo, CA
Please read: If you are joining this group with no intention on attending any of our meetups, this is not the group for you. Please only join if you have the time to invest in our meetups to make close friends.
[If you are looking to pick up someone at a Meetup, this is not the Meetup for you. This Meetup is meant to be a safe environment for all that are truly looking to create a family of friends without the fear of being preyed on by others seeking to engage in romantic/sexual pursuits.]
“The language of friendship is not words but meanings.”~ Henry David Thoreau
I grew up in California where I was fortunate enough to experience a wonderfully close, connected group of friends. We regularly spent time sharing our lives with each other... spending time in each other's homes, integrating families, sharing our hopes and passions, sharing our love of music, and traveling together. We often talked late into the night.
I'm reaching out to see if any of you want to actively help me build a family of friends of like-minded people who can share in creating something like what I've described above. My hope is that as we can create this family of friends that it will grow, thrive and inspire others. What would it be like to…
• Know you could rely on others and they on you
• Share any truth of who you are and not be judged; just heard and accepted
• Laugh late into the night
• Share your hopes and dreams and receive encouragement in return
• Call up any “family member” and just hang out because you want to
• To be that friend that someone else can “count on to be there”
• To rent a cabin in Mammoth for a ski trip or house in Napa for a long weekend wine-tasting •
• To collaborate in cooking together, alternating at each others' home
• To enjoy "movie nights" with popcorn or cheese and wine
• And to sometimes cry over a hurt or loss that’s occurred and receive a group hug in support.
If you desire this level of friendship and want to be part of cultivating a stronger sense of community in this world, then please join in co-creating a special family of friends. Everyone has special gifts to give to help expand this family to ever enriching experiences and cohesiveness. My hope is that this motivates people to open their homes and hearts to others. It is essential that all “family members” pitch in to organize events, etc.
***Since we want to create a close-knit group of people that genuinely want to be an active part of this group, our policy is-- two no shows or three months of inactivity and you will be removed from the group. However, you can always re-join when you're more able to participate in events!***
