What is Friendzone?

 

Friendzone our process of creating community amongst young adults in their neighbourhoods. It isn't a one off event, but a perspective shift to experience our neighbourhoods as a place (zone) where we have friends.

 

It begins with a hangout we host at a void deck where you will meet other interesting people in your hood and connect with them over meaningful conversation. Having made new friends who actually live near you, you can jio each other for stuff to connect further and bond (think makans, sports, and YESS now you have new mahjong, running or supper kakis who live near you :D).

 

With time, you'll begin to experience a cosier neighbourhood community as you grow in courage and comfort to continue to share and invite new friends into our lives :)

 

Why the focus on youths (18-35)?

 

Sure, there are many underengaged communities; but the problem that young people (us) don't know our neighbours is real and serious. Social isolation and homogenous social circles is an issue. We're all living in our own bubbles?? (ono). There are also few opportunities for young adults to connect and make friends in their neighbourhoods. These are some of the gaps we hope to bridge  through Friendzone :)

 

By 18-35, we're referring to those in the life stages of Poly/ JC/ Uni/ ITE/ young working adults. If you are in this lifestage, we welcome you to come join us!

 

Why the name Friendzone?

 

It's clickbaity haha. Got you to this page, didn't it? :p

 

Some associate the word "Friendzone" with dating or think it has a negative connotation. But we think it perfectly describes the heart of this project which is to experience our neighbourhoods as a place (a zone) where we can have friends.

 

We're not a dating platform!

 

If anything, we're ship-ing friendships hahaha

 

Reclaiming the word "Friendzone" and making it a positive thing.

 

What's the average attendance and demographic profile of attendees so far?

 

~30-45 people at each event.

A fair mix of working adults, tertiary students, stay-at-home moms, ITE, JC & poly kids. And yes, a good mix of singles, happily attached people, and married couples :)

the fun stuff

Is the event free?

 

Yes it is! Feel free to bring down snacks like fruits or chips for sharing if you'd like :)

 

This seems fun! When are your next events? How can I get involved?

Thanks for your interest in coming for Friendzone! We're currently taking some time off to plan for our next series of launches in new neighbourhoods in 2020! As such, we won't be hosting any big gatherings until 2020. 

In the meantime, smaller community activities (like BBQs, sports etc) are ongoing in Tampines, Clementi and Marine Parade. If you stay in any of these 3 neighbourhoods, msg us via Instagram or FB and we'll connect with you with some of your friendly neighbours!

 

How do I get a Friendzone going in my neighbourhood?

You can nominate your neighbourhood here! Demand gives us a good sense of where to launch at next!
