Music is one of the most emotive and intensely personal things. Almost everyone (except perhaps those suffering from musical anhedonia) loves music of some kind. And experiencing music with other people is one of life’s great pleasures.
But with so much variety, finding a partner who loves the music you love can be tough.
Whether your thing is more Bach or Bowie, Mozart or Madonna, Jaunt is the site where singles can find others who are into the same things. And when you sign up, we give you 10 free Jems, so your first jaunt is completely free.
How does Jaunt work?
Creating a jaunt is easy, and you can create as many as you like. Just sign up, explain where you want to go and you’re off! Jaunt allows you to specify a “gift” – so for example, you might offer to buy tickets, or alternatively you might be looking for a generous person who would love to take you to that Boyz II Men concert. There’s also a “let’s go halves” option, of course!
So pick your dream event, create a jaunt, and meet your perfect music buddy. Click here to get jaunting.

A first date can be a stressful affair. Even if the chemistry seems right, nerves can get in the way at a crucial moment.
Jaunt is dating done differently, and it eases the tension of the first date in two special ways. To find your match, you first create a jaunt, which is an idea for a date. The jaunt specifies what you’d like to do, and who will pay. So if your perfect first date is bungee-jumping off the Eiffel Tower, and you’re offering to pay for return flights, Jaunt is the dating service for you.
It’s that simple – and what better way to break the ice than finding someone with the same weird dating tastes as you? So make your jaunt original. There are plenty of places to get interesting dating ideas, including here at the Jaunt Blog.
Note that a little humour always helps. Your jaunt is unique to you, and you can make it even better by throwing in a joke or two. So maybe your dream date really is an evening at Nando’s…
Your jaunt can really be whatever you want it to be. And you can create as many jaunts as you like. We’ll throw in some free Jems when you sign up so your first jaunt is always free. Sign up now and give it a try.
Remember, remember… it’s that time of year when firework displays, large and small, are going on all over the capital. What could make a better first date than an evening of pyrotechnics, mulled wine and bonfires? London (being the world’s greatest city, and everything) has a great variety of displays to choose from. So create a free jaunt and see who might want to come with you. We’ve made it easy for you – just click one of the links below to get started.

There’s so much going on this weekend. For singles, there are two small problems:
- Which do I choose?
- Who do I go with?
Jaunt.Singles helps answer the second question: once you’ve decided where you want to go, then post a jaunt, and find someone else who’s into the same thing. As to the first… here are some ideas for Londoners (if you live elsewhere in the UK, click here
Notting Hill Carnival
Europe’s biggest street festival takes place on Sunday and Monday (as well as the Panorama steel band competition on Saturday evening). It’s free, and it’s awesome. You could find a favourite soundsystem, follow the parade, or just wander and soak up the sites. Download the official app here and then create a jaunt to find another Carnival fan to go with.
Smithfield market (Farringdon) is celebrating its 150th birthday on Saturday and Sunday with a free festival including feasts, fairground rides, roller discos and glitter stalls.
Deptford Craft Beer Festival
Coming on Sunday in Deptford’s market yard is the Deptford Craft Beer Festival. There will be lots of beer, as well as “dope tunes and street food”.
Want to be spoiled?
Divas are welcome at Jaunt. If you don’t ask, you don’t get!
Or maybe, you’re feeling generous?
You’re in the mood to wine and dine somebody this weekend? Create a jaunt and find your ideal match.
So you live in the world’s greatest city, it’s summer, and there’s loads to do. Now you just need to find someone who shares your tastes and interests.
That’s where Jaunt comes in. Here’s a selection of things happening this weekend: if one takes your fancy, just click the “Jaunt this!” button to get started. Posting your first couple of jaunts is completely free.
- If you like music (and don’t mind crowds) the Lambeth country show in Brockwell Park is amazing, huge, and free
- On Saturday, Wembley Park hosts the International Busking Day
- Also on Saturday, if you have the stamina, you could join a walking tour of every street in Soho
- If you’re a jazz fan, head to one of London’s best venues, The Hideaway, for Sunday lunch with King Groovy and the Hornstars
- Or if that all seems a bit too much, try something simple
The heatwave is melting us all here in Britain, but we’re trying our best not to complain about it. There are plenty of Jaunt ideas that might help you to cool off. A day to the seaside (if you can cope with the trains or motorways) is one idea. Or here are some more ideas:
- See if anyone would like to buy you a drink at the Below Zero Ice Bar in Mayfair
- Run around in London’s public fountains
- Or maybe even just dangle your feet in the canals
However you want to cool down, Your first Jaunt is free. So find your perfect (sweaty) partner, and go.
There are so many things to do in London in the summertime. At Jaunt, you can propose any idea you like for a date or outing. This week in London, Jussy6 asked if any men would like to join her in a trip to an outdoor cinema, and Henry put up a Jaunt to search for a female rock climbing companion. For our launch period, posting a Jaunt and responding to other people’s Jaunts is completely free.
Jaunt can be used UK-wide, but our launch focus is in London, (sorry, rest of the country! We’ll pay you more attention soon, we promise). As happens every summer, there’s way too much to choose from, so here are five ideas to get you jaunting.
- It’s Wimbledon season. As we suggested earlier in the week, you might want to see matches in the flesh. But if not, you could at least watch them on the big screen at St James’s Market.
- On Sunday, legendary DJ Jazzi B is headlining an awesome music lineup at the free Portobello Festival.
- Why not invite someone to join you on London’s 225 metre ziplines, and then recover over a bottle of wine?
- Watch England play Sweden on Saturday (and definitely not lose on penalties) on a big screen.
- And of course, we have to mention Pride, which has become one of London’s must-see annual features.
Whichever you choose, creating a Jaunt only takes a couple of minutes, and it’s free. So give it a try at jaunt.singles.
If you have an event or venue in the UK, and would like us to promote it to jaunters, please drop us a line.
First date: who pays for dinner? For that matter, who pays for concert tickets, drinks, or the taxi ride home? There’s no right or wrong answer. There’s no problem with the man – or the woman – paying for everything if they choose. But wouldn’t it be nice if we could agree this before the date starts?
Jaunt allows you to offer or request gifts
When you create a Jaunt, the service allows you to offer or request a gift. We don’t allow cash gifts, but you could offer to pay for tickets, or request someone buys you dinner. Or of course, you can suggest that you both go halves. How can you hope to build an honest relationship when you can’t even be honest on the first date?
