Looking to find new friends and maybe something more? Oak Park Public Library is debuting “Speed Dating for 40s+,” a new event, from 7 to 10 pm Saturday, September 15. Registration is required for this free event. Register at the Main Library, online at http://oppl.org/speed-dating-registration , or call 708-452-3440.
The evening will start with an hour of informal mixing, complete with refreshments, beer, wine, and soft drinks. Then comes a round-robin style opportunity to have one-on-one conversations for 2½ minutes with a variety of other people.
“The idea for Speed Dating at Oak Park Public Library grew out of a successful evening designed for 20 and 30-somethings we hosted last winter,” says Leigh Tarullo, Assistant Manager of Adult and Teen Services. “Forty-four people showed up to give Speed Dating a try.”
According to the latest U.S. Census figures, there are 99.6 million unmarried people over age 18 in the U.S. They represent 44 percent of the adult population. In 2010, unmarried households accounted for 45 percent of all U.S. households. And, for every 100 unmarried women, there are 88 unmarried men.
