About MeetUps

Have you found it difficult to make new friends? Perhaps you’re a long way from your hometown or have moved around a lot which has meant new friends have been hard to hang onto. For whatever reason you’d like to make new friends, lets make that happen! Our Meetups are created with the express intention of helping you make some fabulous new girl-friends.

We set the room up like a Speed Dating scenario. We each meet every woman in the room and, if you both like to reconnect, you’ll receive the others contact details the following day. These are super fun, super casual and very supportive. Of course you’ll worry you’re too old, too young too. too shy – whatever! It’s hard throwing ourselves out there but honestly, with a room full of women, each hoping for a new friend, we’re each as vulnerable as one another.

How friendship dating works

IN A NUTSHELL: You’ll have 5 minutes with each participant. If you both answer YES, you’d like to see one another again, you’ll receive one another’s contact details the following day.

ARRIVE – Upon arrival you’ll be welcomed and receive your name badge and Friendship-Card.

NEW FRIENDS-DATE BEGINS – You’ll choose a seat, receive a brief explanation of how the game is played.

EVERY 5 MINUTES
– A bell will sound and you’ll move to your next Friendship-Date. You’ll record on your Friendship-Card whether you’d like to see each woman again.

AT THE FINAL BELL – Submit your Friendship-Card, we’ll collate the “matches”, and you’ll receive your list of new friends’ contact details the following day.

Never has meeting friends been so simple! I didn’t expect the diversity of women, which was pretty cool! Rhianna
