What do I get for $79?

Being single can be expensive.  The bill for dinner out in Portland on a first date is often at least $100!  Spend wisely; here is what $79 gets you at Local Flames.

  • Fun, engaging events.  We offer many events to choose from each month, from big mixers to intimate gatherings.  Kayaking, hiking, game nights, cooking classes.  Well curated, awesome.
  • Amazing, professional membership.  A breath of fresh air – real people, really interesting.
  • A high quality service from real people.  Local Flames staff includes a Ph.D. level psychologist and certified relationship and wellness coaches. Our staff are skilled and love what we do.
  • Personal liaison.  Each member is paired up with one of our personal liaison so you always have someone on your side.
  • Workshops.  Okay, fine, it probably does help to also work on ourselves too.  So when you are in the mood, we have skill-building and self-inquiry workshops.  Open to singles, couples and the community in general.

We’re so excited you found us! Local Flames offers a wide range of dynamic, engaging small group events alongside matchmaking and personal coaching. We will support you in making meaningful connections with others in and around Portland. And you’ll have a ton of fun along the way!
