Friendship Exchange has been providing an alternative
social outlet for single professionals since 1991. We
are dedicated to entertaining single professionals from
various backgrounds (art, architecture, finance, law,
music...) and age (late twenties to late fifties).
Our crowd is fun, sophisticated and open-minded; are you?
Our themed & interactive events are unique and creative
to help you mingle. We strongly believe that when people
share a common experience, it's easier for them to meet
each other... And it's even better when they share similar
lifestyles and interests. We offer various events each
week and we work hard to be creative and offer everyone
a really great time - each and every time!

others like herself connect in a more effective, safe,
and dignified way.
Thousands of clients and more than 500+ marriages later
including her own, Jill Ellington has been featured in
the Kansas City Star Magazine, College Boulevard News,
