45+ South Bay Active & Social Singles

San Jose, CA

45+ South Bay Active & Social Singles

DEAR PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS, <br>

THIS GROUP IS FOR MEMBERS AGES 45 and up. IF YOU ARE NOT WITHIN THIS AGE RANGE, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY. <br>

YOU MUST ALSO HAVE A RECENT AND CLOSE-UP PHOTO OF YOURSELF (just you, please, no other people) AS YOUR PROFILE PICTURE (we use this photo to recognize you in large settings and for safety reasons). ANYONE WHO WAS ACCEPTED BY USING A PHOTO REPRESENTING A " MUCH YOUNGER VERSION OF SELF" NOT SHOWING THEIR CURRENT AGE AND PHYSICAL APPEARANCE WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE GROUP. NO PICTURES WITH CHILDREN OR OTHER PEOPLE.

The 45+ South Bay Social Singles (45+SBSS) is all about making friends with other singles, getting to know them and becoming familiar with each other in a safe and fun environment.

Since its foundation, the 45+ has created long lasting relationships of many kinds. Although this is not a match-making program, we celebrate the romantic connections that have taken place in the past and are sure to continue in the future. Members that fall under this category are encouraged to remain in the group, even after they get marry.

We pride ourselves in considering this group part of our extended family and once a member of our family, you will ALWAYS be a member of our family… Unless you do something really "nutty" in which case we will have to let you go.

We monitor our membership and accept new members only after we feel comfortable that the previously accepted members have accommodated to us, attended events, etc…

Every few months, we remove members who have not participated in any events for more than 4 months, are constantly changing their RSVP at the last minute or have more than 3 "no shows." Then we start accepting new members again.

Please, it is very important that you read the section named "Pages" so that you become familiar with our rules and regulations to decide whether or not we are a fit for you before requesting for membership.

We do a variety of events: hikes, live theater, happy hours, karaoke, museums, music in the park, dancing… We are always looking for new ways to improve to create a more diverse calendar, to listen to members' suggestions and to do a lot of research to find fun activities to perform.

If you get accepted into our group, give us a try by attending several of our events. You will not regret it.

Hope to meet you soon!

Lida :)

"Amendment" to our policies: <br>

There is a strong group made of few members that have been loyal to our events, attending many of them and/or helping us organizing them as volunteers. These members have also shown a great deal of responsibility by showing up to those events they signed up for or have changed their RSVP few times and with enough time to allow others from the wait list to sign up. They are committed to make this group a nice place to come to.

We reward these fabulous people by having preference to events when their names are in the waiting list. The organizers of the events can decide which member can be moved up the list to attend events.

Thank you and hope to meet you in future events :)

We want to be your launching pad to all the special sights, attractions and events that are unique to this area while making new friends and strengthening ongoing relationships. We understand that sometimes meeting new people can be nerve-wracking but will do everything we can to make you feel welcome and be a part of BAS 40+. This group is not about numbers or how many people are in it; it's rather having fun doing activities we enjoy together now more than ever!

YOUR PROFILE : In order to join the Bay Area Social (BAS 40+) group we require that you have a recognizable photo of yourself as your profile picture. It makes it easier to recognize you when you attend our events.  (A recognizable photo of yourself means: Your face is clearly shown, no group shots, no pets. Failure to maintain your photo will lead to your removal.)

AGE RANGE: Bay Area Social 40+ (BAS 40+) is made up of members whose age ranges from their 30s to late 60s.

RSVP / ATTENDANCE - POLICY: 

Our events occasionally will have limited space. Unfortunately this means that not everyone can attend. If you sign up for an event and find that you can no longer go, please update your RSVP. This helps out your fellow members by letting them move up off the waitlist.

Please note: If you attend an event without signing up, it's considered "crashing" and will get you removed from the group.


Finally, Our organizers put a lot of their time and effort to host these events, show them the courtesy of showing up if you have signed up. Members that have a repeating pattern of being a "no show” will be removed from the group.

Bay Area Women's Midweek Hiking Group

Burlingame, CA

Bay Area Women's Midweek Hiking Group

We are a group of women who enjoy challenging weekday hikes in the San Francisco Bay Area.  This is not a group for beginners. Some of us are retired or with kids off to college, some are stay at home moms with school-age kids, others have flexible work schedules or are in between jobs. Some are international visitors/visa holders/green card holders or dual citizenships.  Regardless, we all have time during weekdays when the trails are empty and parking is a breeze!

We mainly focus on peninsula, south bay, east bay, and coastal trails, but also plan excursions to Mt. Tam, Marin Headlands, and San Francisco urban hikes.  Most hikes are 6-10 miles and moderate to strenuous with significant elevation gain of 1000-2000 feet elevation. Sometimes we do exploratory hikes and some hikes can include some scrambles - please be sure to read the entire hike description so you know what you are signing up for in advance. In order to keep to the planned schedule and keep the group moving, anyone unable to keep up will need to feel comfortable navigating their way back on their own.

All members can schedule a hike or suggest a hike, and are encouraged to do so through the meetup app! Let me know if you have questions on how to do this. 

We throw in many dog-friendly hikes too!  You can also join our Facebook page, where we post interesting articles, photos, and ideas for our next new trail.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1374244199552554/

We enjoy each others company and believe that friendly conversation is as much part of a good hike as the beautiful views!  If this sounds good, please come join us- we would love to meet you!

FAQ's

Can I bring my baby or toddler?  Although we love kids, our hikes are not suitable for young children

• Can I bring my dog?  Sometimes! I will specify which hikes are dog friendly.  If you are bringing a new dog, just tell us a little about him/her in the comment section


Please note that for safety reasons, we have a 3 hiker minimum requirement.  Unless we have at least 3 hikers confirmed 2 hours before the start of the hike, the hike will be cancelled.  Thanks for your understanding!

50's Plus Active Singles Community

San Luis Obispo, CA

50's Plus Active Singles Community

This group is dedicated to those individuals who are single 50 years old or older. This is not a dating site.  We are a community group and relationships have developed organically via this group. Some of these relationships turned into long-term relationships or marriage.  It is important to us that they remain part of our family and are able to continue to attend our events. Our basic goal is to join forces to get out and about, meet new friends, attend social events, share our lives and hopefully make an impact on our community. The concept that created this group was based on those individuals who are alone wanting to get out and spend time with others without worrying about the strain or craziness of dating, courting or seeking a long-term mate. We want to get out and have fun, make new friends, be active and just be ourselves. Also, we are NOT to discuss politics; this group is not the place.

Our vision is to create a network of people who care about people. We are positive adults who love to socialize, interact and impact others and are seeking like-minded individuals who want to get out and have some fun support the needs of one another. If you have any ideas for an event, the organizers welcome them.  

We do ask for a small contribution of $5.00 annually, this can be paid online or to one of the organizers ( Sharon or Jim) by check or cash within your 30-day trial period. These dues cover the cost of the website, support our team and our members for special events and at times funds for individual needs.

Be sure to check out our "Pages" for specific information about our group!

Modesto Fun, Fitness, and Adventures

Modesto, CA

Modesto Fun, Fitness, and Adventures

Thank you to everyone who participated in Modesto Women's Fun & Fitness in 2020! 

For 2021, I am changing the name and focus of the group. While it will still be about fun and fitness, it will also be about new adventures and experiences. The group will also be open to women AND men. These activities will incorporate all three of those things--Fun, Fitness, and Adventure. I plan to research and schedule lots of fun outdoor activities and will welcome anyone's ideas going forward.


Group Changes for 2021:

Another change will be that members will now need to introduce and say a little bit about themselves upon joining. If you are already a member, please go in and answer these questions about yourself so that I and other group members can learn about you! In addition, while joining the group is free, in order to participate in future activities there will be yearly membership dues of $10 per person (a small price to pay for fun and meeting new people) in order to offset the cost of organizing the group. Additionally, I will be requiring everyone who joins to have a clear, recognizable photo of THEMSELVES in order to be a member. This is for several reasons, but the main ones are so I know what you look like when you join an event and can account for everyone that signed up, and most importantly, for all group members safety and security. If you join without posting a photo or use a one of a pet or one of your kids instead (not that we don't want to see them too!), I will kindly ask that you post a photo of YOU within seven days. If one is not posted by the deadline, you will be removed from the group. I will continue to look for free and low-cost activities, however, if there is a cost involved this will be posted on the event information, so please be sure to read it carefully and follow the instructions.

I look forward to meeting more of you in the coming year, experiencing new and enjoyable activities, and once COVID starts to settle down, participating in both indoor and outdoor activities. Safety precautions to decrease the likelihood of contracting the virus will always be of utmost importance!
