The Social Group is the favourite social organisation for singles. The Social Group was set up in the first place because of our own experience of being single and finding it really difficult to meet people and make new friends. Before there was The Social Group, we tried everything, and to be honest, were pretty appalled at the choice… We found the usual sad singles clubs had bizarre rules where women had to agree to dance with any man of any age who asked them, and then had to allow themselves be hit on in a really creepy way.
We found other local clubs who almost forced people to hold events in their own homes, paying to cater for the horde of complete strangers who descended upon them. We found the stereotype dodgy dating agencies cost an arm and a leg, and the upshot was you found yourself sitting next to just one person of the opposite sex who was totally unsuitable, both of you feeling extremely awkward and pressured.
We found the classified ads had no safeguards at all — and we were told some real horror stories of meeting the types of people you definitely would not wish to mix with. We understood that not everyone had time for an expensive night school class, or wanted to put their life at risk going parachuting or bungee jumping with a gung-ho extreme sports company. There was just nothing really suitable. There had to be a better way… So, we came to the conclusion, that to get what we wanted, we would have to set it up and run it ourselves.
And to run it properly, that would require a proper office and full time staff, so we would need to charge for the service. But the end result would be to offer something a lot better! Not everyone who is single is looking for a partner — or wants it to look obvious!
Of course, many of our large number of single members are looking for romance — and The Social Group is ideal. Naturally, many single people would like to meet a partner and The Social Group is the very best way to do just that.
At Social Group Events you can take part by yourself without the feeling that you are in a pressured or uncomfortable environment.
Sometimes our single members meet someone they hit it off with straight away. Other times it takes a bit longer. But of course, joining in with the group and having lots of fun and good company is what this is all about, so for many, meeting someone as well is a bonus. We hope you will remember to keep coming out with The Social Group, bearing in mind that new people join all the time, and that special person who is going to be right for you may not be joining until next week!
In the meantime you have the opportunity to make some nice friends of both sexes. The people who get the most out of this, join in, have fun, contribute something of themselves to being good company, and give it the necessary time and patience.
What we offer is a short-cut to a great social life. We do all the organising for you! Some single people are not especially looking for romance. Others are new to the area and are mostly just looking to find their feet. Some are happy being by themselves. Others just like all the different social events and activities they can join in with.
And others join us just to go on the enjoyable UK weekends and fabulous international holidays! Some single people just want some enjoyable and like-minded company to enjoy normal everyday outings with. You can feel so conspicuous going to a restaurant by yourself, or sitting in a pub alone. Going to the theatre or cinema by yourself can feel terribly uncomfortable. By yourself, some things are really taboo.
Other things, such as bigger parties are really much better with some company to join in with. And other things, such as outdoor activities, are simply not possible if they are only for groups. While holidays as a solo traveller can be really daunting, and much less safe by yourself. The fact is, if you want to take part in many of the fun things in life when you are on your own, you need to find a way to have other people to join in with.
That something is The Social Group. Come out to our fabulous variety of social events, meet other members, enjoy some really good company with real people, and make lasting friendships! Our intention was always to put in place something safe and reliable, without it being stuffy and dull.
Some singles like having company to go out to dinner with. Some singles enjoy taking part in the bigger parties and balls. Some people love the range of outdoor activities and adventure sports we include. Whether you are a lady who lunches, or a party animal who likes to get up and boogie, or an adventure junkie who enjoys trying something new, The Social Group can cater for you! Many single people really enjoy taking part in the fabulous international Social Group Holidays at group discount prices, and saving hundreds of pounds when we find them someone to share a room with, and without any single supplements to pay.
We organise all manner of social events, dining out, walks, activities, themed events, entertainment, parties, balls, weekend breaks, and holidays. All offering the opportunity to meet people in a friendly, informal, respectable, and safe environment.
Since we have developed something completely unique for single people to enjoy. The Social Group is number one for singles!
