Single people meet, fun ensues

The Atlanta Film Festival kept me pretty busy but on one of the evenings I managed to squeeze in a singles event.  I got word via my Twitter pal, “Alone in Atlanta” that there was a very cool “sexy scavenger hunt” going down.   I arrived a pinch late  but as soon as I got there I was immediately impressed. First off, it was at the Chocolate Bar. You can’t go wrong there!

When I scanned the crowd I found that everyone was smiling (yes lovely Ladies smiling too) and laid back. A really great vibe!  I checked in and stuck a name badge on and headed to the counter to try a cocktail.  The organizers had everyone participate in a really fun ice breaker game.  You had no choice but to mix and mingle but it was never awkward.

I asked a couple of attendees if they enjoyed the event and everyone I spoke to said they did. The ages ranged from 25 to um my age *cough* and it seemed to mesh well.  Ms. Manson said that this was her second event like this and the first event had a perfect mix of men and women.  I noticed this night the numbers were pretty balanced as well.

I’ve been to speed dating, lock and key parties, and other mixers before but there always seemed to be something annoying about them!  This event felt totally fun, and dare I say organic and natural. Maybe it was the chocolate? Who knows!  How often do you get out to events designed specifically for singles? Does it make you uncomfortable to attend?  Have you ever gone to a singles mixer or party and met some really great prospects?

I believe you have to find ways to mix and mingle so that you don’t feel like you are in a meat market.  The best part of the Hidden Agenda event was that we had the NFL draft on the TV, the scavenger hunt, and a really sexy, fun group of singles just hanging out.  I am sure there were some matches made but that wasn’t the only focus.  It was about being out and about and positioning yourself to have a good time and maybe get some new friends out of it.  That’s win-win in my book!

If you want to get out of the house this evening, I hear there is a really nice Singles Wine Tasting event going on at the High Museum!

Blossomed indeed. Her implants are too big and ri.diculous looking.

I think her career hasn’t gone as far as it should have because she’s too video vixen looking and not serious actress looking.

@Raqi ~ I have a cowoker and good friend who has been happily, gushingly happy, for 42 years, and she married her h.s. sweetheart. Seeing them together always makes me smile because the love they have for one another is evident w/no air of pretense.

I saw the movies Losers last week and couldn’t for the life of me recollect anything Zoe Saladana recently played in (LOLOL). I did remember the next day she played in Avatar.

Slim, I will take one for you when I come back home. LOL The marido called to say he is on his way home and he is taking his best girl out to lunch. Then he said I can tag along with them if I want. :neutral: LOL

But I’ll be sure to take that nap for you.

Meagan Good = my daughter’s doppelganger, but she hates that comparison. i liked Zoe waaaaaay back when she did ‘center stage’. i think she’s just adorable.

and i think kerry washington is also really cute and very talented. i’ve liked her since i saw her in ‘lift’.

Hey everybody!! New here and decided to join the convo. So to play catch up:

Play date was fun (I didn’t see many single people the night I went)
Do what makes you happy single or married
Halle’s cute butis a man eater. I mean she has already been through Wesley Snipes, Dave Justice, Christopher Williams, Eddie Murphey, and the guy she just brokeup with (don’t know his name). Maybe she needs to be single.
Meagan Good has blossomed and gotten those teeth fixed since Eve’s Bayou.

but i didn’t know she had implants

Amazon I had the weirdest dream last night. I dreamt I was considering getting implants and I asked my husband how he felt about it. In the dream he said that they would make me look different but they would not be real. He would know every time he touched them that they aren’t real so he said he would rather I not do it. LOL That was a crazy dream. The TV must have been on an informercial promoting fake boobs. The craziest part is I would never get or consider getting implants and my marido has said before that he doesn’t like them.

I remember one night I got up to go to the outhouse and there was an informercial on selling battery operated boyfriends. I can’t remember what channel it was on but I know it was just a regular channel (Bravo, Spike, Lifetime…) so I was surprised to see that.

I just ran over to Kroger to get some cash for the yard man. I was crossing the driveway in front of the store & waiting until the cars stopped. The man in the car on my left stopped & gestured for me to go on across, but the car to my right I was not sure was going to stop, so I did a little jog to get across quicker. This old man was behind me & yelled out real mean “they ain’t gon hit you!”. I turned around and smiled at him thru my shades. When I was walking around the store I saw him again and he was mean-mugging. I felt like, “carry your old, mean, washed-up butt on & tend to your own business! ‘ It’s too pretty a day, man!
