Established in 2005 we were one of the first friend sites ever to exist and continue to offer our members a safe and fun environment for meeting like minded fun people!
We have thousands of active members from all over the world looking to meet with new people. Most of our members are simply looking to expand their social circle and meet new people for activities such as going out, watching a film, going to the gym, shopping, etc.
At Drinking Partners we are committed to connecting people to form new friendships, and this could be for a host of reasons - not only to meet for a drink. You can organise a cinema night, meet a new gym buddy, go to a music festival, or whatever you like. With our diverse range of members - we guarantee to have a friend for you.
Great - join the thousands of other members already attached and looking for new friendships.
We find most of our members have just moved location, (and as they are unable to take their existing friends with them) - turn to Drinking Partners to connect them with new friends in their area to socialise with.
