14 Ways to Meet Amazing Single People in Los Angeles

Updated on Oct 5, 2021

I think almost everyone would agree that Los Angeles is a tough city for dating. Everyone is so busy, and the people you meet at bars and clubs may not exactly be what you would consider “quality”.

But, there are actually plenty of single people in the same boat who don’t necessarily want to do the club/bar scene. Here are the top ways I’ve discovered to meet quality single people in L.A.

COVID NOTE: Unfortunately, many of these events are on hold during the pandemic. Some are still going on but double check before attending.

1. Volunteer

It’s hard to think of a place where you’d meet a better type of person than at a volunteer event.  There are tons of great young single people who sacrifice their nights and even weekends to volunteer. Here are some organizations to volunteer with:

Of course, there are many, many more volunteer organizations, ranging from political, environmental, animal rescue and so forth.  Just Google what you’re interested in and you’re bound to find a cause that interests you in L.A.

I’ve been impressed at how many young single women are at these volunteer events. At many volunteer events I’ve been to, it’s been mostly single women there. Guys, time to step it up! Not only will you be doing something good for the world, but you could meet someone special.

2. Church / Religious Groups

If you think that only your grandma and old people go to church in L.A., think again. Many of today’s churches cater to young people and feel more like rock concerts than church. Here are some churches in L.A. with lots of young people:

  • Vintage Church: This is a church that meets in Santa Monica and the West Side with lots of young professionals. I know lots of single people who go here and they love it. For their events, check out their community Facebook page.
  • Mosaic: Worship in the heart of Hollywood that resembles a rock concert, but with solid preaching. Much of the congregation consists of young singles with a lot of artistic types.
  • Reality LA: Also in Hollywood with lots of young single folks.
  • Pacific Crossroads Church: Very highly educated congregation of young professionals in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Modern worship. Meets in Santa Monica and downtown L.A.
  • Bel Air Presbyterian Church:  Has a large singles group called The Foundry for adults in their 20’s and 30’s.
  • The Loft LA:  Small church in mid-Wilshire consisting of almost all 20’s and 30’s singles.
  • CrossRoads LA Fellowship Connect: This is a Facebook group devoted to Christian singles in their 30’s and up. It has members from various local churches including Vintage.
  • Saddleback Church:  Huge mega-church in Orange County led by Rick Warren.  All ages, with a variety of services including one that has modern music.
  • St. Monica Catholic Community:  If you’re Catholic, many people have told me that this church in Santa Monica has great events for singles.
  • Renew Church LA: Very young, culturally-diverse (Asian, African-American, white) church meeting at West Los Angeles College in Culver City.
  • Venice Church: Good vibe with modern worship music and practical sermons.
  • Zoe Church: The home church of such celebrities as Chris Pratt, Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin, Selena Gomez, and Ashley Benson.

Please note that is hard to meet people by simply going to church on Sundays and leaving afterward. There are just too many people and Sunday service is not conducive to meeting them. Your best bet for meeting people is to join a smaller church group that meets outside of church.

There are also wonderful people at synagogues, mosques, and places where people of other religious beliefs meet.

3. Swing / Salsa / Ballroom Dancing

Imagine a room full of single people, and all you have to do is walk up to someone and ask them to dance – no drama or creepiness involved. That’s partner dancing, where people want to ask you to dance, and want to be asked to dance. It’s one of the best ways I’ve found to meet single people of all ages.

Granted, you’ll have to invest some time taking lessons and fumbling around as a beginner. But once you get proficient, you’ll meet a ton of people. You won’t regret it!

I’m personally into Swing dancing. The best resource for swing dancing in Los Angeles and Orange County is swingdance.la. It has a complete calendar of swing dance events. For lessons, go here. If you embark on this journey, I guarantee you’ll meet lots of young single people! Here’s more info on why Swing dancing is a great way to meet single people.

The salsa scene is huge in LA, but I feel it has a somewhat higher barrier to entry for beginners. For salsa, check out Vida Salsera.

For ballroom, there is Third Street Dance in mid-city near the Beverly Center, Arthur Murray in Sherman Oaks, and the Pasadena Ballroom Dance Association.

This might sound crazy, but don’t rule out country line dancing (yes, it exists in L.A.)  The most famous place that I know of is Cowboy Country Saloon in Long Beach.  There are single people of all ages there and free lessons before the band goes on.  It’s pretty fun if you don’t take yourself too seriously.

4. In-Person Dating Events

I’m not a huge fan of dating sites and apps (although many friends of mine have found dates that way). I always preferred meeting people in person.

Match.com offers members just that opportunity with their Match.com Events. These are real-life events that you can attend for a reasonable fee on top of your regular membership. The events range from low-cost mixers at a bar to full-on ski trips.

Example of in-person events for members of Match.com

Everyone in these events is there to meet someone, so you won’t feel out of place striking up a conversation with someone. I highly recommend these events for singles in LA.

5. Other Networking / Singles Events

There are many singles events in the LA area

There are tons of networking events for single people, young professionals, and other groups in Los Angeles and Orange County. These are a great way to meet people. Here are some good ones where I’ve met quality single people:

  • Three Day Rule Events: This dating service has some epic singles events, such as their annual Halloween party at the Viceroy. You don’t need to be a member to go to these. Sign up to get on their mailing list and be informed of future events.
  • Ivy Plus Society: This is a networking event for young alumni of highly ranked universities, but actually anyone can join (no one checks to see where you graduated from).  This is not a singles event per se, but there are a lot of single people at these events, and it’s pretty easy to meet people.  One young woman even admitted to me that she was there because she liked “smart guys”.
  • Eventbrite: Has events of all kinds, from professional to hobbyist, and including singles events like speed dating. Sign up for their newsletter for events in your area.
  • Speed Dating: I’ve never done this but I know people who swear by it.  Search for these on Google, Eventbrite, or Meetup.com
  • Lock and Key:  Men get keys, women get locks, and you try to find your match.  VIP Social Events hosts some of these events.

6. Fundraisers and Galas

It would be hard to find a better group of successful professional (and often attractive) people than at fundraising galas and events. Galas are usually held in hotel ballrooms or cool locations like museums, and everyone is dressed to the nines looking amazing. But, there are also informal fundraising events held in swanky mansions in Beverly Hills, Brentwood, and so on. Oh, and these fundraisers often have incredible food.

Some examples of organizations on the West Side that have great fundraising galas and events are The People Concern (homelessness), Harvest Home (pregnant homeless women), and Claris Health (pregnancy counseling). Find organizations in your area who are fighting for causes that you believe in and they will almost certainly have fundraising events with like-minded people.

7. Online Dating

Online really is where people who want to date are these days – especially busy people who don’t have time (or don’t enjoy) the bar/club scene.

The downside of online dating is that you will be judged in less than ten seconds on your profile photo. If you are not photogenic or your photo isn’t good, you won’t get good results. On the other hand, I know so many people who’ve met their significant others online!

Here are some dating sites that I am familiar with and recommend:

  • Probably the biggest dating site in terms of number of members is Match.com. There are a wide variety of folks on this site, and it does work if you invest the time in good photos and a good profile.  Out of all the dating sites, I personally have gotten the most dates from match.com.  As I previously said, I like the in-person mixers they put on in Los Angeles and Orange County.
  • eHarmony goes with the philosophy of “quality over quantity”, giving you a small number of matches that are supposed to be a better fit. I have friends who have done well here and even met their significant others on eHarmony:
  • ChristianCafe is a Christian-owned dating service. If you’re looking a Christian, check this out! 
  • Coffee Meets Bagel is a mobile app that requires a Facebook account.  You get a group of free profiles every day at noon, and you can pay to contact more people.  There are a lot of solid high-quality professionals here who want to find someone to date seriously.  Coffee Meets Bagel does work!  I have lots of friends who have gone on dates using this app.
  • Bumble is another mobile dating app with a similar interface to Tinder, where you swipe left to skip and right to approve.  I will say that your physical appearance is very important on Bumble. A very high percentage of the women on there are models, actresses, yoga/Pilates instructors, fitness coaches, and so forth. Others are successful business owners/leaders. My female friends say similar things about the guys on there. You’ll definitely have to step up your game (and profile photo) if you want to get any responses.

8. Meetup Groups / Facebook Groups

If you’re not doing Meetup.com groups, you’re missing one of the easiest ways to meet single people.  Sure, sometimes the events are lame, and maybe the folks that show up are not exactly your cup of tea, but stick with it and find a Meetup that fits your demographic.  Just sign up for a group that matches your interest (hiking or photography or whatever), or go straight these Meetup groups which have a very high percentage of singles:

Even if you don’t meet someone special, these often meet in cool venues (hip restaurants and bars) that are fun to discover and experience.

In a similar vein, here’s a Facebook group with real life events in L.A. for folks interested in meeting friends from around the world and speaking different languages:

What I’d like to emphasize with these groups is to give them a chance. You might go once or even twice and think a group is lame, but stick with it at least a few times.  Good people do show up to these but sometimes it takes time.

9. Matchmaking Services

If you’re too busy to go out and meet people organically, or just not into that, a matchmaking service can get you results faster.

Once service in Los Angeles is Matchmakers in the City. I’ve met them and they are super-nice and legit!

If you’re looking for a Christian, check out ChristianMatchmakingLA.com.

10. Walk a Dog

If you live in a neighborhood that has a decent concentration of young single people (i.e., beach cities, downtown LA, and hip neighborhoods like Silverlake or Atwater Village), walking the streets with a cute dog can be a great way to meet people! I just got a very cute dog and can say that you will meet new people when you go out and walk it.

Dogs are great ice-breakers and give you something to talk about. If you don’t have a dog, I’m sure you have friends who’d love to let you walk theirs!

11. Outdoor Clubs / Athletic Teams

Want to meet single people who are in good shape?  Join a sports team or club! Here are some ideas:

  • Volleyball: I joined a volleyball class at Santa Monica College, and it was filled with young single people. Even better would be to join a beach volleyball team.
  • Kickboxing, martial arts, karate, Krav Maga
  • Kickball: I didn’t even know they had kickball for adults, but a friend of mine is on a team and she loves it.
  • Yoga: Tons more women than men.
  • Hiking: Somehow there are always significantly more women than men on group hikes that I go on. Check out the Los Angeles Hiking Group Meetup.
  • Running: Check out the LA Running Club or many clubs like this.
  • Biking: Bike shops usually run beginner-intermediate bike rides for free. Check one near you.
  • 5K Races: Even if you’re not in great shape, you can run a 5K with a little training. There are plenty of “couch-to-5K” programs out there.  These races always have lots of young, fit professionals.

Search on Google for more information on sports that you are interested in.

I’ve never believed that the gym was a great place to meet single people (and you can actually get kicked out if folks complain about you if you do), but I recently went to a gym class that required a partner. A lot of people showed up alone and they just paired up with other singles. I thought this might be the one good way to meet single people at the gym. Note, there were significantly more women than men in the class, so guys, check this out!

For the women, reader Jeremy says below in the comments that you should check out any major chain gym at 8:30 PM or later where there are tons of single guys.

12. Continuing Education Classes

If you want to meet people interested in the same hobbies or topics as you are, try taking a class.  Community colleges have really inexpensive classes.  Just be sure to take a class that is truly useful or interesting to you though, as there may or may not be single people there, depending on what topic you choose.

  • Santa Monica College Community Education:  The intro photography class there had lots of young single folks. I’ve also taken volleyball and kickboxing classes there. Check with your local community or state college for continuing education classes.
  • Language classes: I’ve taken classes at the Santa Monica Language Academy. Lots of young single folks take classes there. Check out language classes near you.
  • Cooking classes
  • Art classes: Check out these “paint and wine” classes.

13. Your Network of Friends

One of the best ways to meet people is through your existing friends. Why? Because the hard work is done – you’re pre-approved as part of the “group” and you’ll get much more consideration than a stranger would.

When you get an invitation, go even if you don’t want to, or especially if you don’t want to. You know that birthday party that someone invited you to, but you don’t know anyone else there?  Well, go to that party.  Same with that wedding, where you only know the bride or groom and no one else.  Go to that wedding.  You know those annoying Facebook events that people keep inviting you to and that you keep deleting?  Go to those Facebook events.  Utilize your network of friends to meet new ones.

I know it’s difficult and awkward to go to a party when you only know one person, so here are some tips to meet people at parties where you don’t know anyone.

But when you go, make it your first priority to have fun, not necessarily to meet someone. A person having fun is attractive, and worst case, you’ll have a good time and some good practice for the next event!

14. High-End Grocery Stores

Single people who are financially well-off and who are concerned with keeping fit tend to do their grocery shopping at high-end, health-conscious, supermarkets like Ehrewhon, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Sprouts. These stores have tons of single people shopping around dinner time on weeknights.

Granted, approaching someone at a grocery store out of the blue takes some cajones, shall we say, but I know folks who’ve done it successfully. Two ice breakers might be to ask for advice on something, or give your advice if someone looks like they’re having trouble deciding.

Bonus Idea: Become a Social Connector

Party Treats
Why not host a house party?

So far, I’ve listed places and events to find single people at. But why not create your own fun?  Hosting a party is a great way to meet new people if you can encourage your friends to bring their friends. It also makes you look really good because as the host, you have high social proof.

I get the best results in terms of fun and participation when I pick a theme for my party.  When you have a timeframe in mind, Google that date to see what that date is famous for.  For example, once I planned a party that happened to land on National Milkshake Day, so it had a 50’s theme and we served burgers and milkshakes.  It was a huge hit!

It almost doesn’t matter what the theme is:  it could be Chinese New Year, Peruvian independence day, national Salami day, or whatever. The important thing is to pick a theme! It makes it so much more fun and guides you on how to decorate and what food to serve. And, you’ll get a lot more interest than if you just a have generic party.

Or, be a social organizer, planning events like Hollywood Bowl nights, bike rides, hikes, and so forth. Encourage people to bring their friends.

    The website for Salsa is VIDASALSERA.COM, which translates into Salsa Life. There’s a typo on your website – Viva instead of Vida. Thanks.

    • Brian

      Hi Dena,

      Thank you for the correction! Fixed now.


  2. DJ Meetup

    Meetup Groups are a great way to meet people – after all everyone going there is looking to meet others as well. I’ve met a ton of people at those events and recommend it!

    • Brian

      Thanks for sharing!

    The author is correct about churches- the ratio is for every 20 single women, there is one single man. Guys will not have an issue finding women there. The same goes to volunteerism: I wish men would show up. As for the gym, I work out 6 days a week at various time in the evening, at various gyms and I don’t see single men.Jeremy , what cities do you suggest working out?

    These ideas are “ok” but I sure wish there was something better. You’re just as likely to meet someone at the grocery store or anywhere else as you are using the ideas above. I feel like there has a be some kind of event or place where it’s understood don’t come unless you are single and looking for a date. Here in LA it’s hard being a single guy without a big social network.

    For any ladies reading this, I can you tell you a foolproof idea that will score you some very handsome men quickly. It’s really simple. Sign up at large chain gym (such as LA Fitness, 24hr Fitness, Planet Fitness, etc) and go there at night (around 8:30pm or later). I swear, I SWEAR the place has nothing but desperately single men who spend their nights building muscle just wishing a decent looking lady would ask them how to use a machine. I promise, just ask something simple like “how do you use this” or “am I doing this exercise right” and they will be all over you. The ratio of men/women is like 20/1, the odds are ridiculously in your favor, the guys who come at night tend to be in really good shape and honestly they are pretty horny and desperate for some female interaction. Any decent looking women can get a good catch in there, you would have to be atrocious to fail. But like I said, you have to say something first so that they know it’s ok to hit on you. If you just sit there with a solemn face then nothing will happen because those are the most shy and scared guys you will ever meet in your life. Nobody is more scared to ask a women out than those muscle heads who LOOK like they are drowning in “meow”, trust me, they aren’t or they wouldn’t be hanging out in a gym on a Friday/Saturday night. I know, trust me I’m one of those guys and I wouldn’t be there, I’d be on a date getting laid. The fact that I’m standing there with no girlfriend around and no ring on my finger… I’m totally single and tbh desperate.

    I only wish there was an equivalent of this advise for men, a place that was mostly good looking women just waiting for a single guy to come along and make the slightest advance. But I don’t know of any such place.

    • Brian

      Hi Jeremy,

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences. I’ve totally been there, and I agree that LA is a tough town for dating without a big social network as you said.

      There actually are some places in LA with a lot of attractive single women, but there are barriers to entry, or else tons of guys would show up and ruin it.

      The first place is church… I talking about modern big churches with a lot of single people like Vintage, Mosaic, and Reality. There are definitely a lopsided percentage of women there looking for good guys. If you’re Jewish, I’m sure there are similar synagogues. The caveat here is that you have to get involved, not just show up one Sunday or whatever. You need join a weekly group, go to the activities, etc.

      If you’re not religious, do you like animals? I went to an animal rescue event and 95% of the volunteers were women. I’m sure they could use more volunteers! (I’ll add a link in the article to the organization).

      A lot of other volunteer organizations have more women than men…

      Another place with a disproportionate number of single women is social dancing events. I’m mainly familiar with Swing and Salsa events. There are often more women than men. But of course, you need to take lessons. But that’s also good because it keeps a majority of guys out!

      I’m not big into online dating apps, but many have had success with that, so it’s worth trying. Personally, I’ve always liked the in-person events put on by Match.com for LA members. There’s a small additional fee, but everyone there is single and looking. https://tinyurl.com/y9cm46ko

      All of these things take effort, except maybe the online dating thing. There’s no getting around that. You have to either invest some time an effort into getting plugged into some community with single people, or take the time to build a social network, as you said… or become really gung-ho and start talking to strangers in supermarkets (and I have some friends that do that too).

      Anyway, best wishes and good luck! Keep getting out there and don’t give up! – Brian

  9. J

    None of your suggestions work, believe me I’m a 39yr old in LA, I have tried all of those things, not one works, all the groups things are a ratio of 2 girls to 20 guys, school and educational things are little more than wasting money on a roll of the dice where the odds are astronomically against you, I honestly could pick apart every single one of these “suggestions” being that I’ve tried all and found none to work. And even your bonus doesn’t work, I used to own a dogwalking/petsitting business and never met anybody other than clients.

    • Rebecca Fassmann

      Really? You’ve been to fund raisers and galas and silent auctions? PUH lease. I don’t buy that shit for a second. Stop complaining, get happy and love yourSELF and then maybe somebody will wanna spend time with you. Shit.

  10. Anonymous

    I’m a 5’2 Hispanic woman who works as an Executive Assistant during the day and single mom of a 13yr old at night. I’m 42 years old, who’s physique is about average. (not thin, but not too thick either) and wondering where I can actually meet quality good looking men in the LA area with open minds! I’ve been out of the loop for about 15yrs. Not super confident, and unfortunately would like a higher grade of man than I have dated in the past. I don’t really like the club scene (but can go on occasion), and I really don’t have many friends I can just hang out with. I don’t want to sit in a bar alone, looking creepy and desperate sucking on a straw. I don’t go to church, so that definitely rules that out. I don’t do one night stands and I’ve tried dating sites, but have been made to feel unattractive as most on there are looking for model material, which I am not (nor are they most of the time) or am approached by really OLD men, or guys who look like they’ve just escaped prison. I mean, like many women, I am attracted to a lil of a bad boy too, but geez. I do consider myself “cute” at the very least. I understand first impression are looks, (even with me) but if these guys would just look past that and actually try to get to know a girl, they may be pleasantly surprised – but they don’t. I too have preferences (white boys/hispanics who look a lil bad like Charlie Hunnam yum!), BUT I am realistic too – so that doesn’t mean I wont at least answer a question or spark a conversation with someone because I am not initially attracted to them.

    I’m looking for suggestions on where to hang out, meet up, sign up to meet quality good looking men for dating or even to find friends to hang our with that could lead to more. Please help as its been a while, and I am losing hope.

    • Brian

      Thank you for sharing your story. Difficulty meeting people later in life is a frustration that many people have.

      I have two suggestions. The first is to check out athletic classes or activities such as martial arts classes, biking clubs, running clubs, and so forth. These often have more men than women. As a side benefit, you’ll get in great shape!

      Another activity I’d recommend is partner dancing such as Salsa or Swing. Some Swing events such as Rusty’s Rhythm Club and the Pasadena Ballroom Dance Association offer lessons and have an older crowd. For more info check out http://swingdance.la. At the very least you’ll have fun and expand your network of friends if you go often enough.

      Hope this helps,

        Hi Brian,

        A friend just sent this article to me. Thanks!

        I’m a single 5 ‘ lady but finding finding its hard to find chrustian guys. Especially during this pandemic which makes it harder.

        I help take care of older family member and work and try to meet folks online.

        I’ve tried the different church groups but since I’m older than 20s and 30s, then like Rebecca I also find either old guys are attracted, or single guys who don’t intend anything serious.

        I’m slender and more of a dancer or kickboxing at gym but lots of places are closed now.

        I think of self as maybe more on the ‘cute’ side and have a fun quirky nerdy sense of humor.

        I work a lot because of telework but am really intretested in finding ways to meet men who would also like a committed respectful and healthy relationship.

        And who also don’t look like they just escaped from jail, is looking for someone to care for their child(ren), or way older than myself (closer to 40s) .

        If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks!

      • Brian

        Hi S. Leigh,

        Yes, the pandemic has made it very hard to meet single people for sure. Although I prefer meeting people in person, right now I think the best way to meet the type of single people you’re looking for is through online dating apps. Make sure you have up-to-date, good photos of yourself posted.


    • justabrowsingwoman

      Beyond hilarious especially the bar part. Reminds me of my gf. She’s out at bars every night BY HERSELF mostly, not sucking on a straw but doing double shots!
