"I go around the town and just kinda feel like you see the same face," Amy O' Brien said of the local dating scene.
But a group of singles in the Cedar Valley are using their status for a good cause.
My friend Annalisa and I went out to dinner recently. At a minimum, we could laugh about the experience together. They wore regular clothes – one guy had stitched jeans (very 2008), one wore a convincing fake leather jacket (yes, I touched it), some wore blazers, one a full suit (he came straight from work). There was conversation about eating healthy, not wanting kids, how East Coast cities are so close in proximity compared to Southern cities, how the gym is a great place to meet people because everyone is high on endorphins. Another liked eating “weird food” and loved to travel but hadn’t been anywhere “for a long time.” He also didn’t like flying overseas because it makes him anxious. After I dropped off my new friends, I sat still for a moment in my car.
I had three hours of my life to lose, but she had a point. But also, in my job as a law and society analyst, I spend so much of my time researching people who grapple with divorce. Many don’t see hope in the post-divorce dating scene; some wonder if their unhappy marriages are the best they will ever do. One guy mentioned the importance of caring for your elderly parents; another said that you can’t count on your kids to take care of you when you’re old. I suppose this is what “travelers” are like these days. One described a disappointing experience; the other was more positive, but she also said that online “they see you but then move on because there are so many options.” Only 15 percent of Americans see online dating as an excellent way to meet a romantic partner while about half (52 percent) believe that the best way to first meet someone is face-to-face. I was supposed go online and select my favorite men so I could get my matches in the morning, but I decided against it. I plugged in “Smile More” by Deap Vally – my empowered single woman theme song. Heartbreak or no heartbreak, romance or no romance, life is about these kinds of experiences and these kinds of moments.
But then there I was, sitting in a row of women who had also had their hearts broken, talking to men who had also had their hearts broken, and realizing that my fears and pains were average.
Yesterday evening, I decided to take the plunge and try speed dating. I was somewhat nervous to start off with – excusable considering I was a ‘speed dating virgin’ – but in the end it proved to be an enjoyable and fun evening.
Definite traits of a Monica there (albeit a bit older)."My friend Emerald and I were out one night and she had said how she was single and looking for people and you just don't know in the bar if they're single people," founder Tracey Southall said.Southall set up this event to help singles in the Cedar Valley.CHARLOTTE, NC - For seniors out there who want to find love, the options may seem limited.
