All my friends are married and need to find single people to hang out with. Love my mates but sick of being round couples all the time.

Meetups are the asolute best. They have one for every interest you can imagine. There is one linked to this site called the Divorce Club. They have them in several cities across England. Check out the events page. Where are you from?

Please do come along to one of our meetups – we have a Christmas one coming up in London (date TBA) and have monthly meets up and down the country. Most of them are free to come along to and have a wide range of friendly people who meet up over a drink and talk about life , the universe and everything – and a bit of divorce, obvs. You can email me if you want more info: firstname.lastname@example.org

I really like meetups as well because you can go without the pressure or expectation of you meeting someone for anything more than friendship. It’s not like speed dating events where the pressure is on! I’ve moved cities a few times and it’s a great tool when you need to start over.

Meetup is great – you can alos go and do something quite passive e.g. watch a band or film. I went to one last week to see “Boy with tape on his face” – superb. I think it is difficult though. The world can seem very couply! = if you have any tips though please add them to what works well!!

I joined a tennis club and that was great. I also joined Mandarin classes, that was less good as it was quite an intense class and I didn’t really click with anyone but had I been a little luckier, it would have been better. I think just join activities and sometimes you will luck out and sometimes you won’t

I joined a choir, an orchestra, string quartet, a tennis meetup, a pub psychology pub meetup, salsa dancing, a free comedy meetup, some very local social meetup groups and of course this divorce club meetup! I moved to London after separation and have so many new (mostly single) friends a year later. I’ve now cut back a little on my socialising!
But I think couples often like a new person to inject some fresh topics of conversation into their lives so I don’t actually mind being with couples.
