never done anything like this before. top
Most of our members haven’t before they
joined Friendship Exchange. And almost everyone
is nervous the first time. The first time is always
the hardest, but we’re there to make you
feel comfortable and welcome and our members are
terrific single people who remember what it was
like to come to their first event, and they’ll
go out of their way to help you feel at home.

There are so many varying tastes in alcoholic

and purchase their own drinks, or opt not to drink.

what is included for that particular event. It

or email that details the month’s events
and gives a sneak preview of the events for the
upcoming months. Members choose the events they
want to attend and either fax or mail the reservation
form to us, register via the website or email,

What days of the week do events occur on? top
Each month we offer some events during the weekends
and some on weekday nights to accommodate the
different schedules of our many members.
can I expect during a typical dinner event? top
A typical dining event offers 2-3 opportunities
for you to meet new friends. The first 30-45 minutes
of a dining event are set aside for our “mix
and mingle” time. When you arrive, you will
be greeted, give a nametag and introduced to other
attending members. This is a time to exchange
business cards and get to know everyone who is
at that event. At the time for dinner seating,
members move to tables. We have many fun ways
of doing our seating assignments and you’ll
always have a chance to get to know many people
during the evening. Our cocktail parties and wine
parties are total mix and mingle times where you
have an opportunity to meet everyone there, if
that is your desire. Theater events are similar
to dining events where we have a mix and mingle
time beforehand and then are taken to our seats.
Our outdoor events such as picnics, hiking trips,
etc. offer many opportunities to get to know your
is the mix of men and women at events? top
Typically we have a fairly even number of men to women at most events. If you are looking for quality versus quantity, you will find quality people at Friendship Exchange events.
is the dress code for events? top
We call it “dressy casual” or business
casual. Men should wear dress slacks and nice
shirts, women can wear dresses, skirts, and slacks
that you would typically wear to a nice work environment
or out to dinner in a nice restaurant.
