Talk, not text – a better way to find love
Justine Hall wants to help people find love the old-fashioned way — in person and face to face.
In just a short time, technology and dating apps have completely changed the dating game, but not always for the better, says Justine.
“I’ve used dating apps, but found it really lonely, you are not really connecting in a normal way. I'm not saying they’re bad — I've met a lot of people that have found their partner via social media — it just wasn't for me,” said Justine.
It was after being reluctantly dragged to a party last year, that Justine met her partner and she is now wanting to give other singles the opportunity to meet and talk to someone in person rather than through text on a screen.
“After meeting my partner at a party, I thought why aren’t we doing this more often? I hadn't been to a party for ages and I just thought people don't do that a lot anymore. But it’s good getting back to meeting people the old school way,” said Justine, who is organising an over 30s singles event at the end of September.
“It is called ‘Face 2 Face’ and I am really passionate about bringing people together instead of being online,” she said.
“I have single friends who use dating apps and not enjoying it. I just think it is nice to bring people together so you can meet someone, have a chat and connect on that level.”
