Sarasota Singles Society

The Sun Coast Area's premier singles social, dining, special event, and travel club. The Sarasota Singles Society elevates the traditional methods for meeting singles.

 
Members gather comfortably at exclusive, elegant private clubs, the area's top restaurants, and at a diverse array of exciting special events.  A wonderful way to make new friends, enjoy an active and fulfilling social life, find compatible
travel companions, network for your business, or perhaps meet a new romantic interest.

 
The SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY takes the process of meeting singles to a new level by providing a means for quality single men and women from Sarasota and the surrounding area to meet through socializing with other singles while savoring the pleasures of fine dining, extraordinary special events and amazing travel opportunities.
 
 
Our concept provides the perfect alternative to online dating or the typical bar scene.  There is no comparison to meeting a number of quality singles in person at an upscale social event.  We are all unique and comprised of many facets.  The entire person as a whole, and how they present themselves, is what either creates that magic when you meet someone, or not.  It is hard to imagine how a computer or another person can possibly determine who your perfect match might be.
 
 
Our upscale social events offer a comfortable, natural setting which puts people at ease and allows them to be themselves.  Hosts are on hand at every event to greet guests as they arrive and make certain they are connecting and involved throughout the evening.  It is amazing to see how people immediately start conversing and comingling when placed in a normal social setting.  We have a wonderful core group of members who are very welcoming, which is great, as we have new guests joining us for the first time at every event.
 
 
The SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY offers a far more natural, respectable, and safe way for people to meet.  Not just for romantic interests, but connecting and developing relationships within a comfortable community of friends who have wonderful opportunities to socialize together and do those things singles would otherwise not be able to do.  This is especially true for those recently relocated to the area, or someone who has just lost their life partner.    
 
 
Although not promoted as a dating entity, many people have now met through attending our events and are experiencing the joy of having that special someone in their lives. 
  
      
Famed novelist Charlotte Bronte wisely wrote "Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness; it has no taste." If you are looking for a way to share some happiness with friends who, like you, enjoy the things that make life fun and create a more fulfilling life - join us!

It All Begins With Dinner!

Expand your singles social circle in the most enjoyable way, as we dine at some of our area's most exclusive private clubs and top gourmet restaurants.

The SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY hosts a variety of exciting social and cultural events such as music venues, dinner dances, theatre parties, themed evenings, wine tastings, brunches, boat trips, beach parties, and sports events.  Get your social calendar out as you view the tempting array of fabulous events on the Event Calendar that are already arranged for you.  Call your friends - and start making plans!

Sarasota Singles Society Launches Group Travel !

"With travel, our minds become more curious, our hearts more powerful, and our spirits more joyous. And once the mind is stretched like that, it can never return to its original state." ~ 1000 Places To See Before You Die - by Patricia Schultz
 
As we have grown into a community of friends, it is now time to expand our horizons.  We are launching our group travels by offering opportunities to explore the world! 
 
 
 

River Cruise Presentation by Ama Waterways!

THE SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY LAUNCHES GROUP TRAVEL WITH A RIVER CRUISE PRESENTATION BY AMA WATERWAYS, TOP RANKED RIVER CRUISE LINE,     
AT THE SARASOTA YACHT CLUB ON JULY 31, 2014.
  
 
We are launching our group travel program with a reception and presentation on river cruising by Ama Waterways at the Sarasota Yacht Club.  In their new publication on river cruising, Berlitz named Ama Waterways as the top rated river cruise line in Europe. 
 
River cruising is currently the hottest buzz in the entire travel industry.  This decadent form of travel differs in many ways from sea cruises.  The long sleek ships are designed to navigate rivers and low ancient bridges, taking you right to the heart of old-world cities.  Accommodating 140-164 passengers, they provide a far more intimate experience.
 
Wine and light hors d'oeuvres will be offered as we greet friends and meet potential travel companions at the reception, prior to the presentation.  If not already addicted to river cruising, prepare to be.  Ama delivers a very dynamic and compelling presentation.  This will be like opening a treasure chest and being dazzled by all the jewels!
 
This is a limited capacity offering, so don't hesitate to guarantee your space for this exceptional
opportunity.

JOIN SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY BECAUSE YOUR TIME AND YOUR HEART MATTER!

Although a fairly new venue for the Sarasota area, this innovative concept has been an extremely popular and successful way for singles to meet for many years in Chicago. 

Carol and Harold Erickson founded "The Single Gourmet Dining and Travel Club" in Chicago and watched it grow to 1200 members - primarily through word of mouth!  After 27 years of hosting events and helping scores of singles create life-long relationships in Chicago, they have now become full time residents of Sarasota.  The Ericksons join us as mentors, as well as seasoned hosts at each of our events.
 
JOIN the SARASOTA SINGLES SOCIETY and celebrate life!  Your social calendar will soon be filled with opportunities to enjoy endless special times and memorable occasions with your new circle of friends.

Life has more color and intensity when shared...
