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 :)

Bay Area Social 40+

Santa Clara, CA

Bay Area Social 40+

Bay Area Social (BAS) 40+ is a group for active people looking to expand their circle of friends.

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! 


                     G R O U P - R U L E S  - A N D  - E X P E C T E D - B EH A V I O R S  


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.

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!

Social Sisterhood

Morgan Hill, CA

Social Sisterhood

Welcome to Social Sisterhood.


Our Mission


Our mission is to provide a place for women to meet for fun and friendship at public events in a collaborative atmosphere. Currently, our active members are mostly over 55.


I believe a social group is an alliance of the members. It can thrive only through participation and I will do my best to make participation as easy as possible. As empowered members, you will be able to help form a varied line up of events that interest you. Participation will inform hosts as to what interests the membership so that we can hone the group to our needs.


Membership Requirements


In keeping with our mission, please


  • tell us your true name, 
  • upload a photo of yourself


If you are unwilling to meet these requirements, please do not request membership. If you don't know how to upload a photo, an organizer will help you.


Covid Rules of the Road


We are now in a new phase of the Covid-19 pandemic. Some of us have been vaccinated; some of us plan to be vaccinated; and some of us will elect not to be vaccinated. Each of us has to determine our personal level of risk when it comes to socializing again. The purpose of this email is to openly communicate the "rules of the road" for hosting and attending events in this group.


As you have no doubt noticed, hosts of the four events posted this year have required attendees to be fully vaccinated plus two weeks to minimize risks of getting/spreading Covid-19 to attendees. It has been a relief to get together reasonably safely after a year of social isolation. Those of you that plan to be vaccinated will be able to join events like these soon. However, what about members who are choosing not to get vaccinated?


I have been thinking about this since I posted that first event for fully vaccinated members only. It saddens me to exclude anyone from an event but I feel a responsibility to my own health, to my family, and to the membership. I think the only solution that respects members' personal risk tolerance is to encourage members to host events where vaccination is not required. Members, vaccinated or not, can choose to attend based on their own sensibilities. If I may use myself as an example, I could see myself hosting or attending an outdoor event with my unvaccinated friends depending on the circumstances. While I might be willing to host a fully open event, the "heavy lifting" on posting events where vaccination is not required will likely fall to the unvaccinated members.


This still is not ideal but I have hope that it is a temporary situation as the healthcare system finds solutions for living in the presence of Covid-19 and its emerging variants. Until then, I ask hosts to post events that are clearly marked for attendee vaccination status. If you are hosting a vaccinated-only event, please formally confirm the vaccination status of members whose vaccination status is unknown to you.


Participation


By RSVP'ing "Yes" to an event, your attendance is basic courtesy barring an emergency. Letting your host know if something comes up at the last minute will surely be appreciated. Although there are times it can't be avoided, repeatedly dropping off an event on the day of the event for which you've signed up doesn't work for hosts and other members counting on you to help make events successful.
As with all social organizations, we are interdependent. Therefore, the usual courtesies apply. Further, this is a social group – it is not a business networking group or an opportunity to promote your business or sell goods or services to the membership.
** As of this edit, we are experiencing members reserving a spot and dropping out within 24 hours of the actual event. This is unfair to members on the wait list. In the future, members with a history of being an unreliable attendee will be moved to the wait list if one forms for the event. After all other members are moved up, you will be moved to the attending list if there is room. If there is a financial obligation associated with the event, payment will be required in advance. You may pay the host or the organizer by check or using a payment processor of the host's/organizer's choice in order to reserve a spot. If a payment processor is used, the bill will include processing fees.



Guests 

Women guests are welcome to attend events with a member. If not stated explicitly, events are for women only.
Periodically, an organizer may schedule a family event where spouses or children are included in which case feel free to bring them making sure to indicate the number of "guests" that will accompany you.



Dues


Dues will be billed after a 30-day trial for new members at the rate of $1.00 per month in a single non-refundable annual payment of $12. If you pay the organizer by cash or check, the cost is $10.60 as there is no processing fee taken by Meetup. I will pay the Meetup fees out of the dues collected. Any remaining money will be used for the benefit of the members. The accounting will be made available to the membership when dues collection begins.

So there you have it. Join us. Once you join, you can start posting events you want to share with others and go to others' events. I hope to see you soon!

Lady Bugs On The Go!

Turlock, CA

Lady Bugs On The Go!

This is a Women's Group that is tired of living in the rut from day to day.....
A group who wants to come out and play and explore and learn all the valuable insights that we can share and learn from one another. ...

This is a group that wants to go go go and check all the boxes off on their bucket lists. ..(question #3)

What I want is a group that can come together and share. ..teach one another and learn from each other. ... for instance I don't know how to crochet and I've always wanted to learn...and maybe there are things you want to learn...??? (Question #1 &2)

Throw in an adventure or two and we have a dynamic group ....no I'm not going to skydive....(sorry....I'm not that adventuresome-ha ha)

In order to become a member you will have to answer 5 questions along with a current picture? And then I will contact you and we will meet ( I have found coffee to be the best)  so that you can meet me and I can meet you. Its very casual and low key--do not be nervous.  I want you to see that I am just as normal as you and having you know at least one person in my meetup (me) makes it easier for you to sign up and go to other events/activities with the group.  

 This is not a watch from the sidelines club--this is a participation club--I want to know you and you to know me and all of my members get to know you too.    

 I do not want a club with 100,  200 even 1,000 members that I do not know ....so having a large number of members is not the goal of this club....its learning, teaching, going, doing, helping and making lots and lots of friendships

To be active in the club you will have to go to 1 event/activity every 3 months (this is the minimum required events/activities to stay active in the club--but you can go to as many events/activities as you want)  That is only 4 events/activities a year to stay active.  And compared to a lot of other meetup groups this club is very very active with lots and lots of activities/events and variety.

If you become inactive; then you run the risk of being removed from the club......so just sign up for the events/activities that interest you--I do not expect you to go to all events/activities just the ones that interest you.  And if nothing interests you-then don't be shy-suggest one....

Also just as important if you sign up for an event/activity and cannot go---it is only a courtesy to message or text me that you will be unable to make it.  Failure to let me know that you are not coming for an event that you signed up is considered a no-show...... I usually send an email reminding you one to two days before any event/activity so there is no reason not to let me know you are not coming.   

Myself and others will be looking for you and wondering where you are. Also, some events require reservations and the businesses we have booked with are expecting a certain number of people. Plus no one likes to be stood up. 3 No Shows will result in termination from the club membership.

Dues are $10 for whatever month you decide to join the club...so if you join in August the dues will still be $10  for the remainder of the current year.  And then when January comes around again dues will be $10 for the whole year--Jan thru Dec. 

If this is an issue for you then you can wait to join in January and only pay $10 for the whole year.   I am in two other clubs (not meetup) and this is the way they do it...and its easier to keep tabs on the dues.....everyone pays $10 in January for the whole year. If you come in half way then you still pay the $10 for the remainder of the year.

 I will send you a friendly reminder that your dues are due.  Failure to pay the yearly $10 club dues means you will be automatically dropped from the club and no longer wish to be a member.

 The dues will be used to pay the $14.99 monthly fee that Meetup charges and any excess will go back into the club to be used on activities/events, get togethers, or supplies needed by the membership.  

When you have gone to 10 events/activities--you will be awarded a LadyBug pin.  Activities/ events are scheduled so that there are free events and paid events--you choose what you want to sign up for.

So I became the first LadyBug when I traveled to Niagara Falls by myself. (yes it was scary but my friend that I was planning on going with backed out--and at that time you lost your airline miles if you didn't use them in a year (Southwest Airlines)--so I bravely (and timidly) decided I was going to go even if it meant I had to do it alone. My first ever solo trip---(yikes)

I did not know a soul--but I called home every night so that my poor worried Mother could sleep at night knowing no one had accosted me----it was scary; but exciting at the same time.

Anyway I had walked over to the Canada side to visit the duty free shop. I had bought some items and was at the checkout when the cashier noticed a ladybug on my arm. I kinda jumped (anything with bug in it would have gotten a reaction out of me--ha ha) Oh no she reassured me--a ladybug is a sign of good luck.

Hmmmm so I gently took the ladybug on my arm to an outside area and let it fly fly fly away. (After I paid for my items of course)

I got lost numerous times; I got three tickets on the bridge (I got out of it because after I got the tickets mailed to me-- I explained that the bridge toll guy wouldn't tell me what I was doing wrong--just get moving...go go go---and I ended up not having to pay) and remember that Canada duty free shop--well I was a tourist (all by my lonely) taking pictures as I walked across the bridge toward the US side and all of a sudden here come 3 men wanting to confiscate my camera--I was jeopardizing security by taking pictures of the US bldg--what??? --so much for good luck from the lady bug on my arm--I thought they were going to throw me in jail.....????

10 days later when I returned home safely and in one piece--I remember falling backwards in my bed and thinking to myself--I made it-- and all by myself! That was a huge accomplishment for me--I had never gone on a vacation ever by myself before.

But I got to thinking that while I was touring Niagara Falls I was a Lady and I sure bugged the he$$ out of everyone I met--hence the name: LADYBUGS ON THE GO!!!!

Look forward to meeting you and helping you to create and accomplish your dreams.....
