Manhattan Beach, CA

Finding Female Friends Past Fifty® SouthBay (FFF>F)

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.


If you are looking for Female Friends past Fifty and these guidelines align with your personal values, please join us!


We are looking forward to meeting you!

Artesia, CA

PhirSe- New Beginning

Phirse is a global Support group for Divorced, Separated after marriage and Widowed.


To join this group you must be:

1. Divorced/Separated/Widowed? 

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. 

Vision:

Make life better for all members by supporting each other with care and respect.


Why Guideline: 

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.

4.  Please do not post anything with explicit content (profanity, sex, violence) in any of the groups.


Disclaimer: 

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

Build Your Self-Confidence in Relationships and Life

Los Angeles, CA

Build Your Self-Confidence in Relationships and Life

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.

South Bay Social Group for Women

Torrance, CA

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.

Peeps of LA & Beyond 🚀 (20s/30s Social)

Los Angeles, CA

Peeps of LA & Beyond 🚀 (20s/30s Social)

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>

SGV LA + OC Chinese & Global Foodies

Monterey Park, CA

SGV LA + OC Chinese & Global Foodies

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.

南加州華人區的中國菜算是美國最好吃的。我們吃貨在各地(羅蘭崗、蒙特利公園市、等等)要找最好吃的餐廳,來聚一聚試試不同的菜。一兩個人吃中國菜多無聊----歡迎大家一起來欣賞。別忘記帶現金。G國籍、民族不限。

LA Geeky Fun Times

Los Angeles, CA

LA Geeky Fun Times

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

Finding Female Friends Past Fifty - Orange County (FFF>F OC)

Huntington Beach, CA

Finding Female Friends Past Fifty - Orange County (FFF>F OC)

Finding Female Friends Past Fifty Orange County (FFF>F OC) is a group of seasoned, interesting, and supportive women 50-ish (mostly between 40’s - 60’s). If you're looking for friends in Orange County, 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. This is exactly why the New York Times article about FFF>F below went viral:

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/31/style/self-care/finding-female-friends-over-50-meetup.html

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 live in Orange County, we are currently NOT APPROVING requests to join from non-OC residents. And some events will give waitlist priority to OC residents for those non-OC residents already in the group.

We may from time to time pause approvals for OC resident requests for membership as well, so those in the group can get to know each other. If new requests come from someone with very few other groups or RSVPS, we may hold on your acceptance because it looks like a fake account.

***WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW MEMBERS. ALL NEW REQUESTS WILL BE HELD UNTIL WE ARE ABLE TO ACCEPT NEW MEMBERS.***

We reserve the right to not approve, and remove members, and potential members for any undisclosed reason, including what’s stated in our guidelines below.

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

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, multiple sudden drop-outs with less than 48 hours notice may result in you being marked as a “No Show” (see below). <br>

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 may be removed from future events and/or removed from the group.

Waitlists: As our group grows, so do our waitlists. To be fair to some newer members who are never able to get on the "going" list, we may from time to time hold a space or two specifically for new members to be able to join and add them by increasing the number going. Or, if an event is full, and a member or two cancel, we may also add members who are not necessarily new, but are not on other "going" lists, instead of someone next in line on the waitlist, who is already going to other events that week/month and we can give preference to OC residents. This is to try to be more fair to our members. Also, if there are last minute (less than 48 hour) cancellations, we may move those on the waitlist to "not going" and allow whoever is able to go to sign up. Most people already have made other plans 48 hours before an event, so this has been one of the best ways to fill the space and cause hosts less stress when there is a last minute cancellation. <br>

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, without warning or communication for violating these expectations, and distracting us from being able to form real friendships. <br>

~ Controversial topics, such as politics, religion, or anything that could offend another member.

~ 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.

~ Complaining: A lot of time and effort goes into planning an event, and working with the venue for a group of any size is not always easy. Please be a gracious guest and don’t complain about where the table is, how slow the service is, getting separate checks etc. Taking it upon yourself to speak to a manager of a venue to address anything is not tolerated.

~ Drama: We are grown women; drama in any form is unnecessary and will not be tolerated.

~ Bad Behavior: If we receive multiple complaints about a member or an organizer notices something, it's usually a red flag for behavior that is not friend-worthy. Examples include: if you sign up for every event, then cancel later, if you sign up for an event with another group on the same day and time as our event, if you are demanding with the organizers or waitstaff, if you are aggressive or confrontational in approach, if you don't properly pay for your portion of your meal, if you try to go around the normal protocols for signing up for an event to try to get around the waitlist, or anything that causes complaints about you. <br>

~ Business/Networking: Please leave your work hat at home. We are here to make friends, and not be sold to or recruited. <br>

Please remember, you are trying to make a good impression on women who may become your BFF's, other members and organizers notice your behavior, so please act appropriately. <br>

If you are sincerely looking for Female Friends past Fifty and these guidelines align with your personal values, please join us!

We are looking forward to meeting you!

In this group, we will attempt to take advantage of this paradise by creating a wide variety of events which explore Southern California; whether it's a day at the beach or hiking up some famous mountain peaks, trying a new restaurant, testing your trivia knowledge at a pub, braving the new rides at an amusement park. We will endeavor to do it all!

South Bay Walking & Hiking Group

Torrance, CA

South Bay Walking & Hiking Group

Welcome to The South Bay Walking & Hiking Group. This group is primarily for people 49+ who are really motivated to stay active and have a good time doing so. However, anyone who enjoys what we do can also join. This means if you are below 49+(30's-40's), and you want to improve your fitness level, or if you are NOT a "tiger," or if you enjoy our other activities listed below, then please join usFriends and relatives are always welcome at our activities and events.  


To protect our members and the community, particularly children under 12 who are ineligible for vaccinations and at the mercy of the adults in their worlds, effective immediately, we are requiring that all members who attend our events be completely vaccinated against Covid. This means that you are two weeks post the final shot in whatever vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna, J&J) you have received.


Please DO NOT ATTEND our events if you are not two weeks post final vaccination shot. Also, bring a confirmation of your vaccination status to each event; you may be asked to show it.


If you got your Covid vaccine in California, you can get a Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record at


https://myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov/­


We're sorry if this goes against your personal values, but while those who choose not to get vaccinated are exercising their free choice, this Meetup group is exercising its free choice as a private group, in consideration of the increasing threat of the Delta variant and the scary prospect of an even more devastating variant that could arise as Covid continues to spread among the unvaccinated.



Our goal is to build and/or maintain a high level of fitness within our capacities and make good friends at the same time. (Walking is fun, but nothing beats walking with friends.)


Our activities take place around the South Bay, especially the Palos Verdes Peninsula and San Pedro.


The South Bay Walking & Hiking Group focuses on 4-6 mile walks, trail walks, and hikes at a moderate pace — with an occasional more strenuous or longer walk thrown in for a challenge and increased fitness. We walk on sidewalks, boardwalks, and trails, wherever the journey takes us.

Our other goal is to enjoy nature and the outdoors-- the ocean, marine animals, and habitats of our area -- so we seek routes that benefit both body and soul! We also do sunset walks to admire beautiful views available in our gorgeous area at different times of the day. Often we stop at a great café or restaurant after the hikes.


The South Bay Walking & Hiking Group branches out to other activities that are all about fitness, fun, and friendship-- like kayaking, bike riding, whale watching, dining, movies, and more. When there is interest, there will also be historical walks, inter-generational walks (i.e. walks with children), and dog walks.


In brief, we support each other to get and stay fit while enjoying good times together!  Please join us!


By the way, we don't charge dues to have you join and enjoy our many exciting activities. You are totally welcome to participate in our meetup for free because your participation is already a great contribution! At the same time, we gladly accept donations. You can Donate by giving cash or check to the Event Host.


Thanks for your support and WELCOME! 


In return for your participation:

We expect our Members to change their RSVP to “Not Going” from “Going” as soon as they know, especially for events that have a Waiting List.  

“No Shows” are inconsiderate, especially when there is a Waiting List, and Members who have three “No Shows” will automatically be removed from future events for which there is a Waiting List, if they are on the “Going” list.

All of our Event Hosts are volunteers. They are hosting because they enjoy the activity and want others to share this enjoyment. We encourage you to try new activities with us.

Do not send unsolicited messages to members. If a member complains about receiving such messages, you will be removed from the group.

When you RSVP for our events, you assume all of the risks of participating in any/all activities associated with the South Bay Walking and Hiking Group.

You certify that you are physically fit, have sufficiently prepared or trained for participation in this activity, and have not been advised to not participate by a qualified medical professional.

The risks include, but are not limited to, those caused by terrain, facilities, temperature, weather, condition of participants, equipment, vehicular traffic, lack of hydration, and actions of other people including, but not limited to, participants, volunteers, monitors, and/or producers of the activity.

Torrance Wine, Beer, Cocktail Tasting

Torrance, CA

Torrance Wine, Beer, Cocktail Tasting

Let's get together for affordable Wine Tasting Excursions for wine lovers in the South Bay and neighboring cities. We can also have local wine, beer and cocktail tasting events for local businesses with the group to get some wine education, good times, good people and experiences. We can order simple flights to tickle our taste buds or get drinks to expand our taste palettes. 

We also attend live music performances at local venues, view movies, have house parties and experience ethnic dining.

We are now requiring a full face photo to become a member. This is for everyone's security. Please read the following disclaimer:

DISCLAIMER: Group organizers and assistant organizers assume no liability; come at your own risk. 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 any 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. 

Although most of us in the group are working professionals, I do not expect the members to attend each event. Life happens and sometimes with work being busy, even I get stuck "adulting". So, do your best to join us and you may experience something local, new and fun!

See you soon! Cheers!
