It’s a new month (well new-ish … month) and Mingle is back!

Did you miss us? I hope you did. I sure missed you guys sliding into my DMs and asking me questions like … so what is Mingle… how do I sign up … when is the next event etcetera, etcetera, etcetera

And so I figured it was time to do what I do best and create a website! Finally, there’s a place to: find out what Mingle is about, sign up and refer friends

So without further ado! Introducing our new website: www.mingle.africa


If you’ve already signed up, don’t worry, we’ve imported your details into the site. So feel free to share the link with your friends!

If you haven’t signed up? First, what are you waiting for??? Second … now is the perfect time! Because a new event is this happening this Saturday the 21st and this time it’s BRUNCH! As usual, invites will be in your emails and sent via WhatsApp by the end of the day!

If you haven’t registered yet, you can sign up on the brand new website: www.mingle.africa

And if you’re just hearing about Mingle for the first time … here’s a TLDR

What is Mingle?
Mingle our way of helping 30+ singles live richer and fuller social lives by creating third spaces for our members. It was born after I wrote a very vulnerable essay about how hard it is to make friends as an adult that went mini-viral on Twitter. I spent about 2 years working with Sheila Ojei to figure out why it’s such a problem and how to make it better. Turns out the answer is third spaces (and the lack thereof).

What’s a third space?
Third spaces are locations where people can exchange ideas, have a good time, and build relationships organically. But in the age of capitalism, those kinds of physical spaces are disappearing. And instead, we’re getting dating apps, clubs, Instagram-able cafes and co-working spaces where no one talks to each other. Mingle is our attempt to bring those types of spaces back.

Who’s Mingle for?
Mingle is for anyone looking for a way to expand (and more importantly) deepen their social circle. It’s for anyone who’s tired of the shallow, superficial connections that plague networking events, dating apps and conferences.

What’s a Mingle Space?
A Mingle Space is a hosted event where instead of just nibbling and pressing phones, we focus on bringing people together to actually connect and we have RULES to ensure that happens.
