Event Details

Unlock the secrets of social science as you search for a partner and learn the research-supported ways of flirting successfully, in this masterclass in partnership with Guardian Soulmates.

Do you wish you were in a relationship, but it’s just not happening? Feel like the search for love is hard work and isn’t worth your time? Maybe “all the good ones are taken”? Or you’re whiling away hours swiping but finding it hard to connect?

We’ve partnered with our online dating platform, Guardian Soulmates, to help you find meaningful connections with other like-minded individuals. With social and cultural anthropologist and founder of Flirtology, Jean Smith, you will learn how to pinpoint where you may be going wrong in your quest for love, and - most importantly - how to get on the right track, with confidence.

Combining theory and science with practice, this supportive class will show you how to better identify the right partner, why your criteria may be ineffective, and how you can get results without compromising what makes you so unique and, well, you.

You will leave feeling relaxed, hopeful and positive - and equipped with the confidence to help you find your soulmate.

By purchasing a ticket to this masterclass, you will receive 40% off a subscription to Guardian Soulmates. The discount will be available via a link in the confirmation email.
