Speaking from experience, being single is not always easy. Chances are your friends have set you up on blind dates, you’ve tried your hand at internet dating, and maybe you’ve even spent an evening speed dating. Before you give up and retreat to your couch to enjoy a night of TV (alone), there’s one more thing you have to check out.
In addition to providing up-to-the-minute professional resources to media folks, mediabistro.com is offering a more old-fashioned one. On Thursday, June 19, we’re hosting our first-ever Spring Fling: Lock & Key Party. With the help of mb instructor and author of Secrets of a Fix-Up Fanatic Susan Shapiro, we’ll be doing some old-fashioned matchmaking just in time for the summer. The rules of the party are simple: men get a key, women get a lock, and you chat up prospective matches until you find the one that fits. Sue is a known matchmaker extraordinaire, and will do her best to ensure some successful matches.
The price of admission includes a drink ticket, and women can attend if they bring a (single, of course) friend of the opposite sex with them. Single men — you get in for free! Click here for party details.
