He’s single? You’re single? You’re not really attracted to each other in that way, but sometimes wish that you too could update your Facebook status to something unnecessarily mushy?
Take a breather before suggesting a marriage pact inspired by My Best Friends Wedding — those things have a lower success rate than side-parted perms.
Propose instead to accompany each other to Melbourne’s classiest new singles meet. Think speed dating minus the awkward conversation, harsh lighting and cheap chardonnay. Wait, scratch that — the only thing this has in common with speed dating is that you’re 99% sure every other person is single.
Instead be welcomed with a Cham-Cham cocktail on arrival, enjoy old school R&B tunes and stir up conversation with drinks from the bar. Complimentary bites and bar snacks will be provided, and you don’t have to use them as an excuse to steal a peek at his ring finger.
If you don’t find success in the cocktail lounge, Half Moon also boasts a killer beer garden.
