We’re on our own more than ever before.
While physical distancing is key to reducing the spread of COVID-19, it doesn’t come without consequences to our social well-being. Prolonged social distancing can result in increased fatigue, depression, and other health issues stemming from social isolation.
This is especially a point of concern for singles, because this time of year is typically all about togetherness.
That said, being single during the holidays doesn’t mean you have to be lonely.

Joining a social group can help you beat social isolation by introducing you to new connections and making sure you have a great time along the way.
This year, social clubs for singles like Events & Adventures have been innovative in connecting singles online through their virtual events.
Unlike dating apps that allow one-on-one dating, Events & Adventures brings together a community of singles to try different events in a pressure-free group environment. Members say it’s easier to grow a natural connection through the virtual events before meeting someone in-person.
If you’re stuck at home and craving some time with others, Events & Adventures has a ton of fun and festive activities planned for December, so you can easily get into the holiday spirit while meeting up with other singles online from home!
You can share that ‘home for the holidays’ experience virtually with other singles by indulging in holiday treats together, such as baking and building gingerbread cookies and making holiday cocktails. If you’re into holiday crafting, join in on some DIY workshops — where you can create your very own ornaments and wreaths — hosted by Events & Adventures.
For some holiday-themed fun and games, play a few rounds of Name That Holiday Tune or Christmas movie trivia and engage in some friendly competition with your new friends.

By staying social through virtual events, you can fight off the winter blues and boost your mood during the coldest months of the year. You’ll no longer feel isolated when among a group of lively and cool singles!
Even if you’re not the biggest fan of the holidays, Events & Adventures hosts plenty of different virtual activities — from Jackbox Party games and Around the World cuisine takeout parties to Stand-Up Comedy Nights and Happy Hours — so you’re sure to find one you’ll want to join in on.
Sure, the holidays are going to look different this year, but we NEED human interaction in our lives to maintain good health — mentally, physically, and socially. With Events & Adventures virtual holiday events and more, you can find the connections to enhance your social life throughout the winter season and the new year to come!
Vancouver singles can meet other interesting and adventurous singles through exclusive members-only group social events hosted by Events & Adventures.
Try something new, put yourself out there, and meet awesome people along the way!
