Charlie in three words: fit, fun and outgoing

What is Singled Out:

Singled Out is a match-making platform, brought to you by OutInCanberra, which calls on the eligible bachelors and bachelorettes of Canberra, who are willing to take a leap of faith and put their hearts in the hands of the public who will play cupid.

Each of the singles’ profiles will be uploaded onto the OutInCanberra Singled Out website, where people can then vote for who they believe would make the perfect match!

From there we will shout them on three special dates – each with one of their top three most eligible partners as voted by the public – and keep track and report back on any lurve developments.

Now that you have had a sneak peek at the goods, nominate yourself or a mate in Singled Out by filling out the form below for your chance to join these fabulous five!
