San Diego Friends (SDFriends) is a social group for people with herpes who live in the San Diego area. We welcome everyone over 18 who is interested in making new friends, sharing interesting activities together, and meeting others who share our unique situation. SDFriends is not a dating service or personal introduction service. Instead, we plan social events and activities to allow you, the members, to meet one another in a supportive, relaxed atmosphere. It's really mostly just about making new friends and having fun together. Our events take place at both private homes and public locations, so even new people will find a setting in which they feel comfortable.
There are NO DUES AND NO MEMBERSHIP FEES - just lots of fun activities for you to enjoy, all organized by other members like you. Because there are no officers, no dues and no budget, we rely on our individual members to plan and organize events that others might be interested in, such as Happy Hours, Hikes, Picnics, Ski Trips, Bike Rides, Museum Tours, Nightclub Trips, Dancing, Baseball Games, Surfing, Snowboarding, Camping, Bowling, Wine-tastings, Skating, Comedy Shows, Billiards/Pool, Concerts, Motorcycle Rides, Movies & Dinner, etc. If you want to plan your own event, please be our guest!
Since herpes does not discriminate and neither do we, we are a very diverse group of people. We're especially welcoming to folks new to this situation and to the group. We’ll make sure to introduce you to other friendly people and make you feel at home. If you’d like to talk to someone or ask questions before you attend your first event, just contact one of the group moderators or the event organizer and someone will be in touch with you. View our Events Calendar to see what's coming next. We'd love to meet you!
