I made a friend I would bring to those types of events. It made life much, much easier. But she was using me to find out about social events so she could get a boyfriend. I knew that at the time, and I was fine with it because I thought that at least we'd get to know each other and maybe become friends. Eventually, she got her boyfriend, and she stopped talking to me. Not too surprising, and I don't fault her because she was very up-front about her goals. I've generally found that people in relationships simply don't want to be "wing people" since they don't seem to need social interaction aside from their significant others. Alas, I know almost no single people, and the few I know have similar hangups as I do.
