When I was bartending, a lovely lady gave me her number over the bar. My manager, having seen the smooth exchange, turned to me a said, "I didn't think people met like that anymore!" It gets to feeling like that in Melbourne's dating scene, with so many first contacts with a potential flame coming through the simple swipe of a finger.

Keely Sonntag, the brains behind The Datevine, is looking to chuck that notion away — or at least provide an alternative. Instead of checking out a bunch of pictures and making a snap judgment, The Datevine is all about getting together in a fun environment and just simply seeing what happens. You know, social interaction. There's no pressure, no expectation, just some single people maybe or maybe not hanging out together.

After a string of sold-out events in Sydney, The Datevine is hosting their first Melbourne party on Thursday, June 8, booking out Brunswick Street's Rice Queen for the night. $59 gets you dinner in the form of a set menu, plus the opportunity to chill out with similarly minded people. So put the phone down, get out there and meet some people.

The next event will take place at Rupert on Rupert on Thursday, June 22.
