A little message from us

We get asked all the time, why did you start pip social? Well, it’s simple, we are two 30-something year olds living in the beautiful city of Edinburgh…and we are single! Most of our friendship group are now married, engaged or having babies and we couldn’t be happier for them, but it got us thinking - why do more people not celebrate being single?

There is an ever-growing obsession in society with technology, and with more people choosing to work remotely, meeting friends and partners through swiping right, has become the norm. But while technology can help connect us virtually, it can also leave us feeling more disconnected than ever.

So, we decided to take matters into our own hands and start organising social events that we would want to go to, to increase our social circle, to build confidence and maybe even stumble upon romance along the way. And hence – pip social was born!

We ran our first social in Edinburgh in June 2023 and since then have been overwhelmed by the engagement and enthusiasm for the idea. It’s clear we are tapping into a genuine need for community and for vibrant, fun social experiences where single people are the stars of the show!

We are not just stopping here; we have big plans. We want to create a singles movement where we ultimately abolish the cultural perception that single people are lesser than their coupled-up counterparts. We want people to wear the single status as a badge of honour, to enjoy the journey and to fully embrace the power and freedom that comes with it.

So, let’s make being single something to shout about.

Love, Sarah & Jen
