Local Link brings the local community together by providing a platform to connect with others and connect with your community.
Whether you are looking for a significant other or a friend, we connect people with similar interests and provide them with options and ideas to discover fun things to do together. Whether you want to give back to your community by volunteering at the local non-profit or take lessons to do something crazy like whitewater kayaking, we work with businesses and organizations to put together unique experiences to send you on your way to an amazing time with just the right person.
Before the dawn of internet dating and social networks, one way to look for another person was through classified ads. The idea of putting something up in a newspaper that begs, “Single male seeks fun and outgoing female,” seems archaic these days. But let’s be honest, filling out an online profile, checking boxes for your favorite color or band doesn’t exactly paint a realistic picture of a person.
All the same, we can find other people with similar interests to ours through social media, but we all know how often people paint a very incomplete picture of themselves on their profiles. All of these systems designed to connect people are basically just a more complex online version of those old classified ads.
If another person shares your interest in Italian food or hiking, does that mean you would like to spend the day hiking with them or have a dish of pasta together? If you know that someone likes to ski as much as you do, will you have anything to talk about while you are riding the lift?
The best way to get to know someone is to actually do something with them, not just browse their profile online. In comes Local Link, a better way to find people to join you on your own local adventures. Maybe you want to try the new restaurant in town or perhaps you have been hoping to check out the new gardening classes at the Botanic Gardens. Our system helps you find experiences to enjoy with another person.
Whether you hit it off with the person, at least you did something fun instead of having some uncomfortable awkward date/meetup because you winked at their online profile.
Our system is about actually getting out there and doing things, not just finding other people with similar interests. At Local Link, we believe that the best way to get to know someone is to have a fun experience together, not trying to make a connection through a computer screen. Call us old fashioned, but real relationships are formed through real in-person experiences, not a series of text messages, right swipes and likes on a news feed.
We like to think of Local Link as the best way to meet other people while doing awesome things at the same time. Where that relationship goes is up to you, but hopefully we can provide a way for you to meet a new friend or significant other in a fun casual way—no strings attached, just a good time doing something fun. You can choose on your profile whether you are looking for friends, romance or both.
