Hi, I am a proud paleo girl, im 19 and I live in Fremont, ca and I have a hard time finding or meeting other paleo people to socialize with. I would love to be able to meet some other paleos who are serious about health and see having a good time doesnt mean drinkibg or smoking but instead being healthy and natural. I like talking about nutrition and exercising. I like drinking tea and coffee. I do eat dairy like yogurt and artisan cheeses. Im a fan of cheese and raw dark chocolate. Its hard finding people at my age with a positive mindset for health and knowledge. I also like doing recreational activites and going to farmers markets and shopping. I love gardening and plants and I use all natural products.I like traveling and going to the beach but Its no fun being alone or not gaving soneone to talk to at the end of the day. I also love animals, if you think we could be potential friends id like to hear from you. :)

I don't think you should limit yourself to just hanging out with Paleo people as Desmond mentioned in another answer. Instead, be open to meeting anyone that's health focused, you'll get to learn different diets that way too! Best way for me is to look at local MeetUp groups. Check out the active ones like: running groups, hiking, health, or really and sports related groups.

I've found that the best ways to meetup with other like-minded Paleo peeps is by going to some of the conferences and meetups held around the country.

Paleofx in Austin is awesome and you'll meet a ton of people. Also found that if you live in a major city, there's a good chance that a Paleo-centric meetup exists.

I am in a similar situation myself: I would love to meet people my age with a positive mindset for helath and knowledge. I am 22 years and have found it difficult to meet like-minded people. Unfortunately, I live rather far from you; I live in Los Angeles.

I tried this before and actually made a friend also living in SF (happened to live 1 block away). In the end, you just need to find health focused people. At your age it will be tough, but I promise they are around.

Don't get too caught up with Paleo so that it ruins your social life. Focus on being healthy overall and don't sweat the small stuff.
