36 questions that lead to love events


Friday, July 26th from 7:30pm

Can you fall in love with anyone just by asking and answering 36 questions? More than 20 years ago, Psychologist Dr. Arthur Aron succeeded in making two strangers fall in love in his laboratory using 36 questions he created. Designed to build a deeper connection, these 36 questions are used by Social 8 Adelaide matchmaker and love coach, Jane Donovan to give local single people the chance to also fall in love. ‘I believe shared, slowly growing and consistent vulnerability helps people to have a deeper sense of connection, so I thought this would be a fun way to test Dr. Aron’s questions’ Donovan said.


Past Social 8 36 questions experiments have had a HUGE 76% of participants desire to swap phone numbers and date following the experiment. A HUGE 52% of participants have gone on to date and explore getting to know each other further. Due to popular demand we ran the event again and again with paired couples continuously swapping numbers! 


Our event always starts with a social mixer short cocktail party before moving to tables for 2 where you will be paired with someone of similar age and demographics to then proceed to share the answers to the questions with each other. Post answer time, we will continue to socialise as a group. Here is a YouTube video demonstrating the questions used in a social setting.



Cost is $55 which includes a shared ‘Love Birds Picky Platter’ Plus co-ordination and Social 8 hosts attending.

So who best suits attending this event? Those of you who love fun, meeting new people, being in it to win it and want to see what all the fuss is about with these 36 questions. We suggest being open minded and willing to answer the questions authentically to give the science behind this experiment a chance to do its thing. If you don't enjoy following a format or sharing personal stories, then this event isn't for you. 


Also we must share that 5-8% of attendees will absolutely hate the experience, a further 7-10% were disappointed in the experience, so please know we can't guarantee you will enjoy this. That said 85% of people do enjoy it.


So if you are interested in attending once this event is once again released, there are a few steps to be taken. First we require you to complete an applicant’s application form located to the right here with your details including two recent photo's (these photo's must look the same as you will look on the night, that means these are recent photos and not photoshopped, let’s all be honest in presenting authentically).

Next, we see if we have someone potentially suitable to pair you up with for the evening. If we do, then we will email you a confirmation of your booking and the ticket fee is then required to be paid within 48 hours to secure your place. 

Once we receive your payment, we will email you the 36 questions for you to peruse and start to have an idea of what you will answer for sharing on the evening.

Arrival is at 7:30pm on Friday, July 26th 2019 at the Osmond Room, Arkaba Hotel. Dress to impress and be ready for a night of fun!

Let's see if the 36 questions lead you to love.

Thank you for your interest,

Jane, Katie and the team at Social 8
