If you would like to join please read the directions at the bottom of the page, if you ignore them you probably won't be approved.. why waste your time or ours? Thanks...
This is probably one of the most active groups in the Southern California area, whether it's volleyball, karaoke, rock climbing, happy hours, wine tastings, game nights, skiing trips, pubcrawls, dinners, bbq's, you name it we probably have done it. This group has a lot of great people who are looking to make new friends or try new activities or just live life, especially if you're new to the area or just interested in making new or expanding your circle of friends.
There's tons of groups in Southern California, but this group is dedicated to people living in the South Bay areas (Manhattan, Redondo, Hermosa, Torrance, Gardena, Hawthorne, Lomita, Playa del Rey, El Segundo, to name a few) but of course it's open to anyone from anywhere as long as you're willing to drive out to hang out with us.
The reason is that we focus specifically to things that are close to us, a cool dive bar that's five minutes from my home or going for a bike ride on the strand, chilling at Sharkee's or going on a hike, without having to get in our cars and drive forever on those freeways.
So join us! We encourage active participation and this group is run as a community, we share ideas and support each other in trying new things and having a distraction from the everyday of our lives.
This is a really good group, part of that is that we carefully screen people, make sure that only people who are genuine and serious about making friends join the group; my objective is NOT to make it one of the biggest on Meetup, in fact I probably delete as often as I add, if you're sold and want to join, please please please please.. read this:
3. Have a "clear" picture of you on your profile page.
Clear is = we can see your eyes, lips and nose.. It's for the safety of all members, this is a friendly group, what do you have to hide?
Please do this, I probably reject about half or more of the people that apply because they can't take 2 minutes to do this. Honestly, its not a lot and it is for the safety of the current members. If you've been on meetup, when there's no filters, you meet some people that you really wish you didn't... Thank you and I hope after all this we haven't scared you away. Join us!
