Long before the days of Tinder and Bumble, Lonely Hearts Ads were the medium used by singletons in their eternal search for love. The personal ads were generally used to initiate romantic encounters and were distinct in their word count limitations set by newspapers, leading to some humorous.. and sometimes downright strange results.
Taking inspiration from the wittier love notes, this St. Dwynwen's Day the Morgan Quarter will be playing matchmaker with our #MQTweetheart competition.
We want shoppers to tweet or message us on Facebook with the funniest, sweetest and cringiest message to a secret crush or loved one (nothing too weird please...) using #MQTweetheart, all for the chance to win a perfect date.
Whether you think you've spotted your soulmate at Uncommon Ground or just want to make your significant other smile - this a great way to spread the love and perhaps get a free meal out of it!
The competition will run from 25th January-13th February, with a winner announced on Valentine's Day.
And the best part? Your meal for 2 can be at any Morgan Quarter cafe or restaurant! So the choice is yours if you want to woo your tweetheart over Afternoon Tea at Wally's Kaffeehaus, eat spaghetti Lady and the Tramp style at Giovanni's or gorge on burgers at The Grazing Shed.
