A born-and-raised Adelaide girl passionate about self-development, communication, and saving the world. Rumour has it, I like a good chat. 

 

The crazy advancements of technology over the past 10 years means we can literally connect with anyone, anywhere, at any time. As amazing as that is, it's also left us seemingly more disconnected than ever before, with conversations or a friendly smile across the room being replaced with swipes and clicks and (ew, wait for it) wink emojis. 

 

Research shows our heads are buried in screens for over 46 hours a week, with only 4 to 6 hours per week being spent with family or friends in real life. Whaaat?! Naaaah. We can do better than that! 

Are you tired of swiping left, swiping right, winking, sending kisses, messaging for all of eternity or only coming across cringey singles events? I was! And what if you just wanted to make new friends or explore new experiences, anyway? Then what?

 

Well, what if there were things to do in Adelaide (and other upcoming regions) that could get you offline and in the company of like-minded people? Events that weren't solely focussed on dating, but had the potential to roll that way. Somewhere that gives you the opportunity to connect with others based on good old-fashioned chemistry instead of profile pics and preconceived ideas.
