Spokane, Washington’s second largest city with a population of over 200,000, offers ample opportunities to meet new and interesting people, but the first step is to start looking. Rather than spending another solo evening surfing the web, check out the local area’s singles activities. Potential romance, possible friendship and adventure could be just around the corner.
Expand your group of friends by joining a Spokane-based activity group, on Meetup.com. Whether you are interested in finding a relationship partner, or just wish to enjoy single life with other singles, you will find a group worth checking out. Younger, uninvolved women will find plenty to do with Spokane’s Single Women´s Meetup Group, which currently boasts over 100 members enjoying dinners and drinks among good company. The Spokane Friends Meetup Group welcomes men and women interested not in dating, but in discovering the Spokane just outside your front door.
