Inspired by the Invitation: Tini, Melanie, Helen, Mary and Dixie put on thier party dresses and heels and headed to the Singles Party in Marin County at the hotel.
The Senior Singles Party promotion promised a rousing 50/50 Male and Female Mix
As the women entered the hotel, they saw dozens of women – all dressed up and ready to party – a large registration area and bouquets of red, heart-shaped balloons. There was not a man to be seen. Checking watches, they concluded they were not too early and wondered about the male component.
Minutes later, four men strangled in – a sea of Tommy Bahama shirts and kakhi pants. The appeared to know the organizers and put on their name tags and smiles. Then they mingled. Shills or Singles?
30 Single Women showed up that Sunday afternoon and only a Dozen Men. The ladies were entertained by the more aggressive femme fatales who went after the men like there was no tomorrow. There were no cat fights…however, there was some jockeying for position and Trump-like pushes to the front of the line.
Not amused, not happy: The five ladies insisted upon refunds on the spot and wandered over to the San Rafael Civic Center Farmer’s Market where, every Sunday is party.
Page Larkin Consults: We met for a two-hour session on “Men and Dating at 50, 60, and 70?”
In additon to candor, there was much laughter and a swell of renewed interest in Meeting a Few Good Men.
They are on the look out…stay tuned for results.
All names have been changed to protect the Suddenly Single.
