Anti-Dating App Social (Manchester)

BODA singles' socials are taking over the upstairs of GRUB every third Friday of the month and we couldn't be more excited... 

Who’s bored of dating apps and ready to bring things back to basics?

Remember that feeling of locking eyes across the bar with a stranger you fancy? That moment where you would finally get chatting? Getting to know them face to face rather than over an app?

Delete your dating apps, bring your friends (or rock up solo - so many people do this, no need to feel nervous), and let's make dating human again.

Our social get-togethers celebrate love in all its forms, with a focus on community, friendship and looking after our mental health in dating, as well as romance. So this is as much as an event to swap numbers with a new pal as it is for sparks to fly!

What to expect:

- Drinks, tunes, excellent street food, karaoke (totally optional, so don't worry if this isn't you), vibes and lovely times that will make you love being single

- A Dutch Courage Card. Again, this is optional 

- A room where everyone is single. That's one of the only rules we have - you must be single to enter in. This is our singles club. A space free of couples, families, kids etc, a place just for us to let our hair down and be with like-minded people

- Street food - you'll be able to grab delicious bites throughout the night. We highly recommend having your dinner here!

As long as you're between the ages 21 - 45, EVERYONE IS WELCOME, whatever your sexuality or gender.

Note: This is not speed dating. This is a social, a typical night out - only, everyone in the room is single. We cannot control on the night the level of ratios (men to women, women to women, men to men etc), so please do bear this in mind when booking a ticket. We do however try very hard to get a great, wide mix of ages, genders and sexualities, as we want everyone to have a fantastic night.

Some lovely feedback from the nights:

"Loved last night - such a relaxed atmosphere! I thought I wouldn’t stay long having turned up on my own but stayed for the whole thing and managed to swap numbers with a lovely guy!"

"My highlights were... I met new girlfriends!! And boyfriends! Set up two couples, they kissed and got each-others numbers! And I also got a kiss and number!"

"Just wanted to say I thought the event was brilliant last night. So safe, so welcoming and everyone was lovely! Me and my friend had such a laugh talking to new people and having a mingle, it was great."

"I came on my own and within 10 minutes got chatting to a girl who had also came on her own. We got on like a house on fire and ended up getting a takeaway on Bold Street after the event. We've arranged a date for this week, so I'm not sure whether you'll see us again at the next event, haha!"

"I will DEFFO be going again and telling everyone I know. It’s an amazing night you’ve started and long may it continue and you can be the next Cilla Black! 🤣 and thank you so much for it being on a Tuesday as I work all weekend so really struggle getting out to meet people so that’s my Saturday and I was just made up to have a Prosecco in my hand haha. Such a boss job. Can’t say enough good things, honestly. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻❤️🥰 xx"
