Modern dating is frustrating. The games. The mind reading. Who knows what a "relationship" even means these days? CanWe.app is a new relationship guidance tool that helps modern daters meaningfully cut to the chase with a potential partner with safe and fast intentionality.
Join our demo! Bring your friends, bring a date, or journey alone; and we'll all practice together in a fun and low pressure adventure in St Paul’s Cochran Park (rain or shine).
