Plain and simple: This is a group for anyone new to Los Angeles or anyone who wants to meet new and interesting friends. It is all inclusive, casual, supportive, positive, and most of all fun. Do you miss having a close circle of friends? Get out of your comfort zone and join.
This group is unique in that EVERYONE is a "Meetup Organizer", this means that ANYONE can post a meetup without asking an administrator or meetup organizer first. You don't need approval, you just post your meetup. Make sure you follow the rules for posting meetups that are listed at the very bottom of this page.
Be respectful of other members. Be mindful of RSVP's and cancel if your plans change.This is a great way to meet a diverse group of people and get to know more about this amazing city!
We have a sister group called "I wanted to do that, . . . Just not alone!!" You might be interested in checking out. Lots of good culture and social stuff.

====RULES FOR MEMBERS=====
You are allowed to join with whatever name and whatever photo. HOWEVER the main organizers may request you change either name or photo a their discretion. Names that are products, promotional, advertisements are red flags that will be requested to change or be removed. If you are using a photo that is not your face, a current face photo may be requested. Here is the rule of thumb. Fake name and fake photo will be requested to change to a real photo and a real name or face removal. Real photo and fake name is usually fine. Fake photo and real name is usually fine.
IF you need to maintain privacy of both then contact the main organizers and just ask. That's all it takes usually.
Do NOT message or contact people you have NOT met in real life. Meaning: This is NOT tinder of craigslist. Meet people at events. Do not just send unsolicited messages to members you have not met at events unless there is a context (like a carpool request for example). If you are reported you may be removed from the group.
The "do not contact people you have not met in real life rule applies here and on several like minded groups.

DO NOT USE THE DISCUSSION BOX to post an event or even to "ask" about an event. Just DON'T USE THE DISCUSSION BOX AT ALL FOR ANY REASON. Plain and simple it generates spam. If you this was a regular group the box can be turned off. Since all members are Event Org by default it is not able to be turned off. Just don't use it. Post an event using the "post an event" feature. Pick an activity, date, time, location and post it. You do not need to ask 5000 people first, . . . if you have a question you message to The Admin.
