Vintage Women of the South Bay
San Jose, CA
This is an amazing group of women that has been evolving and growing since 2009. Some of us are empty nesters and are asking ourselves, “Now what?” Some of us are between jobs or newly retired and are wondering what to do with our free time. Some of us are new to the area and want to grow our circle of friends. And some of us just want to leave the menfolk at home and enjoy a girls’ day out.
For me, most of my friends and family had moved away. Someone mentioned meet up and this is the first group I found, and so happy I did. I met women my own age right in my own backyard that I may never have met on my own. Life is so much richer with friends and a strong sense of community.
We enjoy activities such as movies, Bunco, chat nights, plays, golf, brunches, art festivals, day trips and morning walks. And if there is something you would like to do but don’t see it here, you are welcome to host your own activity.
Join us if you like to laugh and try new things.
PLEASE NOTE: You must be female and over 50 to join. A profile photo of yourself is required when joining Vintage Women so we can recognize you at events.

Single Boomers need more places to dance, mingle and maybe make that special connection in classy locations.

These will include dances, parties, movies, dining, wine tasting events, entertainment of all kinds, happy hours, seminars, karaoke, outings, retreats, cruises, trips and more. We want to create an atmosphere where people will be very comfortable meeting new acquaintances, making friends and sharing experiences.
Meet new people, have fun, open yourself to new opportunities. We are friends helping friends on this new journey we are all taking in life and learning to have fun again! Most of all change your life in a way you never expected!

50's Plus Active Singles Community
San Luis Obispo, CA
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!
Mensa / San Francisco Region
San Francisco, CA
This MeetUp provides a dynamic way for members of San Francisco Regional Mensa to get the latest on Mensa events in the Bay Area and to more easily host their own Mensa events. The idea is that by eliminating the very long lead time now necessary to post things to the Intelligencer, we will have more, and more varied, events on the calendar.
You MUST be a *current* member of Mensa to join this group. When you click "Join Us" (above right), please include your full name AND your Mensa membership number so that we can verify your membership.
If you'd like to become a member of Mensa, please go to the SFRM website, http://www.sfmensa.org/, to find out how to qualify, or to locate a testing session near you. In the meantime, you can join us in our San Francisco Mensa Friends Meetup where we have events open to non-members.
Organizers and Event Organizers can post events directly to our Meetup site, but Meetup no longer allows non-organizers to post events directly.
If you are a member of our Meetup group, but not an organizer, and you wish to have an event posted, click on "Suggest a new Meetup", or send an email to email@example.com. Be sure and be specific as to what the event is, including a full description, date, time, and location. If you'd like the event to recur on a regular basis (e.g., 3rd Wednesday of the month), be sure to specify that as well.
We hope to see you soon!

Mountain View Downtowners 20-30s
Mountain View, CA
New to Mountain View? Been here awhile but still want to meet people?
All are welcome, but closer proximity tends to make for better connections so this will be a group for those who want to hangout downtown MV and expand social circles.
This is a casual, weekly group to hangout, meet new people, and find some fun. Break off for awhile and rejoin. This is a no obligation / no pressure to stay longer than you want to type group.
For each week… a day, time, location and topic will be posted. Sounds good? See you there.
Laps, dinner & drinks
Relax & games near city hall
Picnic at the park
Tech side projects mixer
Crafts and drafts (beer that is)
BTW: Of course it’s awkward to meet new people and not all connections will make for perfect friends but let’s just see how it goes.
Also in order to get more diverse crowds I’ll try using max attendees and add folks via waitlists. We shall see how that works out.
1st priority - goes to getting an even number of men to women. (Send me a message if you want to clarify what you identify as.)
2nd priority - goes to regular/ repeat attendees
3rd priority - goes to those who live in Mountain View.
* I’ll try to balance the waitlists accordingly but it’s a tricky task so apologies if you are waitlisted too often. (Send me a message if this occurs too much)

Music, Mix & Mingle
Would you like the opportunity to get out socially in and around Marin and San Francisco and do fun activities?
If you're looking for ways to meet more people, or looking for that special someone, it's always fun to get out and socialize with others. We have one of the most active Meetup groups in the area, so if you're interested in getting together for drinks, dinners, movies, wine tastings, whale watching, sailing, hiking, dancing and other activities, this is the group for you!
Feel free to suggest events - we're always on the lookout for new ideas! We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event! We have both indoor and outdoor events, and try to have something for everyone.
A photo is required so that Organizers can recognize you at events. It should be face-recognizable! Organizers often record attendance, and we don't want you to be missed and labeled a no-show.
No-Show Policies: If you RSVP that you are attending an event, that is a promise that you are attending the event in person. This is especially important for things like restaurant reservations and small-group gatherings. No-shows are often removed from the group when an Organizer is taking attendance at the event.
45+ South Bay Active & Social Singles
San Jose, CA
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!
"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 :)
