Volunteerism and the American Ethic!

I was surprised at how well-written and forceful this is:

“The present way in America to meet other singles is in bars, using dating services or through the personals, all of which can take away a person’s self esteem and waste precious time. While volunteerism has been suggested as an acceptable way to meet other singles, too often the volunteer activities are dominated by women or individuals who are married. Churches have also been suggested as a decent way to meet singles, but in many cases the single person is surrounded by happily married couples and children, doubling the hurt and frustration. Friends still introduce friends but many times, the friends just don’t happen to know anyone single.

With half of the population divorced, offices discouraging interoffice romances, a disenfranchised telecommunicating population, and the legitimately evolutionary need to couple, a way had to be found to overcome these obstacles. With the national reliance on volunteerism to make up for a growing deficit, Single Volunteers could make two birds live with one stone.”

This comes from the Singles Volunteers of America website.   

I might have said intraoffice romance, and skipped the cheezy metaphor, but still! 

 Sometimes I wish I were single and looking, so I could take avantage of all these great dating opportunites (not really, but you know what I mean) Match dot com, speed dating.  It’s like you get to rewrite your facebook profile every 60 seconds.

 Contra Dancing has been hailed as the only place a new beautiful woman is flung into your arms every 30 seconds (every 64 beats, at 120bpm…)
