Are you inundated with the relentless facebook event invites that just really go unnoticed because well.
- There is way too many to choose from you have no idea
- You would rather jus stay at home and chill and not meet any humans face to face
We get it, we've been in this conundrum before. On one hand you wanna go out and meet sexy single cats because how else are you going to do it, apart from using evil Tinder, and on the other hand you don't feel like interacting because you're an introvert at heart.
Well this time of the year is tricky and without pontificating like those other insipid speed dating websites "how to survive this Christmas" URGH PLEASE. And the "woe is me I'm single" articles in stupid INSERT BEAUTY MAGAZINE NO ONE BUYS ANYMORE. We've decided to keep it really simple on how stay happy this festive / summer period by giving you super mega fun, hand picked events to get you out of the house.
So what are the elements of being happy, and avoiding those dreaded questions from Mum like "When are you going to meet a nice boy" Or "when are you going to settle down INSERT NAME" that's some extra stress you don't need. We think the elements are.
- Hang with your mates
- Get out of the house
- Go to some cool events in Perth that music or food based (simples!)
So without further ado here is a selection of things to do in Perth 2019 from us to you, so you can flirt hard, and not beat yourself up watching Love Actually all alone... xo

7. A Midnight Visit
Lifted from Urban List Perth
Think 34 rooms stretched over the once abandoned school. It’s part choose-your-own-adventure, part film-set, part performance, part sound-world and part bloody playground. There is a church with a millennial pink ball pit (yes, you can dive in). There's a neon forest, a creepy hotel, a mysterious king and a whole lot of scary veiled ladies.
What: A Midnight Visit

Cost: $46 - $82 per person (plus booking fee)
8. THE MAGIC SQUIRREL
From our ol mates at Urban List Perth
The pop up bar will be opening from 7 February and it sounds unlike anything we've seen in Perth before. Think Alice in Wonderland meets some seriously creative cocktail makers. Follow The Magic Squirrel through crazy light projections, giant art installations and a magical forest wonderland that will have you feeling transported to another world.
This one looks cool, but be warned though, the Freo prison really gave us the heebie jeebies the last time we were there. But if you do take a first date to it, it will have a huge cuddle / intimacy factor. (Kinda like a scary movie)
What: The Magic Squirrel
When: 8th to the 23rd of February 2019
Where: The Fremantle Prison
9. VALENTINES DAY WITH BOWLED OVER DATING
TBH we're still throwing up some ideas for this one, (we're always trying to be different and not do LAME singles parties) but it will be a good time!

Where: TBC (possibly Fremantle and a new unopened small bar called Apotheke)
