Speed dating in a library! Not a bad idea-- instead of 6 minutes of small talk you get a chance to talk to potential candidates who share your love for books.
Poudre River Public Library District in Colorado just announced its first such event July 23 and wants to make it a regular happening. The only problem so far is that "the overwhelming response" only came from women. They have no men yet."We need men!"
This sounds only too familiar. When I ran my agency in Dublin, we had regular parties and outings (horse-racing, wine-tasting, gallery openings). Guess who always signed up? Yes, That's right. Women. Guess who even paid the fee in advance and had a credit card to do so? Right again. Men's stereotypical response was:"I'll see you at the door." Afraid to commit even to a function? The women were certainly more proactive about it.
They are still taking bookings--from men, is my guess. Some things are hard to change.
Why is it so difficult to meet somebody today?
In spite of all the networking possibilities and social media?
