    Monica is a medical receptionist who hates close-mindedness and loves being adventurous and spontaneous.

    Notable quote: “For me looks comes last. As long as you can make me laugh and you have a good heart, I am sold. But if I had to pick a feature I would say they must be tall and have nice eyes.”

    16. Natalie, 26, SA


    A midwife, Natalie says she's a party girl who hasn't met the right person yet because "Adelaide’s Tinder isn’t giving much to be honest."
