Here at Single City, we really care about the friendships that keep you sane.

So when you’re sick of trolling or your local pub for a date this weekend, consider redirecting your attention to build the platonic portion of your social calendar.

Try, for instances,, a kind of friend match-maker service.

Started by “Joe” of Roscoe Village, the service promises you one meeting with a single person or in a small group setting after a personal consultation with Joe himself, for the initial ticket price of $29 and then $29 per friendly set up thereafter.

Joe also calls ya the next day to see how the friend-date went, making the service what he calls, “the most low-risk, high-reward social opportunities” you’ll find. Citing customization, privacy, quality, service and value, Joe also describes himself to be a “personal social concierge.”

Maybe you’re current bestie is getting married and you need a new single girl in your life to go out on the town with. Maybe you’re new to the city and just want someone to eat dinner with. Maybe you’re just bored! Whatever the reason, if you are 21 and in the area, Joe wants to set you up with the friend of your dreams.
