The apps have failed.
There’s nothing more disheartening than ditching a dating app only to talk yourself into the re-download and discover the same faces time and again.
And even when the swipe right produces a rare match, there’s a high likelihood of becoming a pen pal with no prospects of a date. It’s disheartening.
Recently there has been a noticeable increase in singles events in Cork inviting people to get off the phone, out of the pub and engaging in activities or areas of mutual interest in an effort to form connections more naturally (and which hopefully last longer).
This month, Conscious Singles are coming to Cork with their in-person events for men and women, catering to singles who are on a personal development path.

The day-long event is broken up into morning and afternoon sessions, starting with a welcoming cup of tea or coffee, followed by meditation and icebreaker games for people to get to know each other with the aim of consciously relating and connecting with others.
The afternoon session deals with consent and boundaries, followed by a five senses experience, which can be done solo or with a partner. The day then ends with yoga nidra meditation and time to connect with others.
Fancy going along? The Conscious Singles Event takes place in the Scala Retreat and Conference Centre, Castle Road, Blackrock, Cork on Saturday, November 25th from 10:30am – 5pm.
Tickets cost €69 per person for the day and lunch will be provided. You can grab your ticket and learn more about the event through their website here.
