Omaha Public Library will offer Speed Dating on Valentine’s Day
January 31, 2014
Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate the people we love, but it may feel more like a slap in the face for singles who are looking for a relationship. After all, they just survived the holidays alone, enduring questions from family and friends like, “Why are you still single?” and comments like, “You aren’t getting any younger.” Just when it seems the worst has passed, St. Valentine arrives with his arrows, roses and dinner date specials. However, there are some options… One might hunker down with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, watch cheesy movies and wonder why dating can’t be easier; or perhaps rally other single friends and paint the town red! Or… they could do something about their single status and head to the library!
