Forget speed dating, there’s now an event which simply aims to find you a mate – as in a completely platonic one.

Let’s be honest, making friends can be super easy for some. For others, it’s the complete opposite.

Hey, sometimes it can be as simple as you want to work your social circle a little bit but have no idea where to start or, thanks to Netflix and UberEats, just don’t get out often enough to do it.

Working exactly like speed dating, Speed Friending will kick off at Yagan Square on February 24 where participants pay $15 and get about 5 minutes to chat with their potential new bud before moving to the next.

This even is specifically for those in their 20s and 30s, but the organisers reck they’ll have other age group events coming soon.
