Singles Directory & Things to do in Berlin, week of July 31, 2023!
In the last edition, I conducted a poll among my single subscribers, asking if they'd be open to exploring the analog world instead of relying solely on apps and the digital realm to connect with someone special. The response to the survey has been quite encouraging. As a result, I've created a directory of singles in Berlin who share the belief that there's a better way to find that special person than attending speed dating events or relying on dating apps with swiping and texting.
Once the directory has a sufficient number of entries, my plan is to organize events that offer a relaxed atmosphere, steering clear of awkward speed dating or typical club nights. These events will provide an opportunity for individuals to have fun, get to know each other, and foster genuine connections.
If this idea sounds good to you, fill out the following form. This way, I can reach out to you directly when we host our first singles event:
