Break up with boring dates!


Our Mission

Making first dates great again.

We can’t promise that you’ll meet the love of your life on date #1.

We also can’t guarantee you won’t spill your wine, make jokes that don’t land, or have an awkward chat about splitting the bill.

But what we do know is that with Firstbase, you can have positive, fulfilling dates doing the things you enjoy.

We’re on a mission to help you go on better dates with like-minded people.

Match with potential friends and dates who like the same things you do – whether that’s surfing, lawn bowls, gaming, bike rides, skate, films, you name it.

Our Story

First-hand experience sparked the development of Firstbase.

When yet another first date didn’t eventuate because landing on an agreed activity proved too difficult, Will Parsons, a Gold Coast based electrician and professional boxer, first ideated an app that would match people on who they were and what they liked to do as opposed to how they looked or where they lived. 

Will had been on a string of dead-end dates with matches that looked great, but when it came down to meeting, their shared interests fundamentally didn’t line up and most dates didn’t eventuate.

There were countless hours spent trying to get to know the person and understand whether there was a connection. Going back and forth, asking and answering the same questions became too frustrating.

He canvassed his male and female friends and came to the realisation that he wasn’t alone. They were also sick of wasting their precious time (and hard-earned cash) on dates that had a pre-prescribed expiry because they were never set-up correctly in the first place.

Will was motivated to find that special person, and help others do the same, so he took matters into his own hands.

“Firstbase was born to get people off their phones and out doing the things they love with someone they enjoy spending time with.”

Because the app matches based on values, personality and interests, those you match are more likely to be people you fundamentally click with.
