This will be two great events rolled into one.
The first part of the event will be a girls night out
where ladies can make new friends at the spa. At our
first two girls night out events, several of the ladies
made great friendships that continue to this day.
Video footage will be provided soon.
Part two of the event will have the single men join
when we meet at a bar/restaurant to take part in a
speed dating event. The bar/restaurant will be
within walking distance of the spa.
"The hardest thing is to establish a circle of
friends, a circle of single people," Ms. Cardenas
said. "The idea of having a fun time for myself and
meeting single women is very attractive. It takes
away the scariness of doing the single thing, and
puts a fun element in it."
As the friends they have known from young
adulthood commit to relationships, marry and have
children, single women in their 30's, 40's and 50's,
especially in the suburbs, often find themselves out
of the loop. Tagging along with couples becomes
awkward, and the common ground of shared experience
dwindles. The single friend may feel stuck in a
rerun of "Sex and the City" while the married friend
has moved on to the Wisteria Lane of "Desperate
"A lot of women my age are married or have kids,"
Dr. Hughes said. "They are just on a different path
in their lives. They are not interested in going out
or doing anything with the singles scene. I am still
looking to go out, to meet men."
Not only would they have a chance to commiserate
with other unattached women over fresh fruit, sushi
and cucumber water, they would also choose from a
menu of pampering treatments, from mini-facials to
professional makeup applications, having their hair
blown out and attending a group lesson on skin care.
Afterward, relaxed, primped and perhaps bonded,
the 18 women would move straight on to the more
traditional half of the double-barreled event: a
men-and-women singles party at Cirella's, a
restaurant in the mall.
"Meeting women and men - it's a good two
options," Ms. Cardenas said. "Doing the spa thing,
if all goes wrong, you walk away with your facial.
If all goes right, you make some new friends. If it
goes extremely well, you walk out with a potential
guy's phone number or being asked your phone
At singles events for men and women, Dr. Hughes
said, she often got "that standoffish thing" from
other women. So the women-only mixer at the spa was a
refreshing change, a chance to be cohorts instead of
rivals. "In this kind of situation, it's a lot more
relaxed," she said.
