The Team

Fun. Pleasant. Enjoyable. Merry. Delightful. We are a group of people who whole-heartedly believe all of these words should have a forward facing place when meeting new people. Especially Online! Our aim is to provide an environment where you can be yourself and just have fun meeting new people.

We work with our hearts (and occasionally, our minds too!) to bring you a fast, fun and free way to connect with other people, play a game, and finally meet up in the real world. We have tapped into our experiences with virtual and real world gaming, looked at what works and what doesn’t and come up with a way to remove the stress and return the sense of adventure and positive anticipation back to the experience of meeting people online.
