Topeka Single Events Emerge
The thought of a singles event is great: a group of cool individuals whom you’ve never met, ostensibly present to meet you and open to the idea of a relationship. Adios single life. The reality may be a bit more awkward, such as the attendees and most likely won’t take cues from “Love at First Sight.” With the correct mindset, a singles event serves as a jumping-off point to a first date. With four single events occurring this month, there might be a lot of first dates happening in Top City.
WHEN: Thursday, February 8 @ 7p
WHERE: Abigail’s Bar and Grill in Oakland (1909 NE Seward Ave.)

Questions asked include what gender(s) you want to be matched with, your life passions, long term goals (professional and personally). “Answer as honestly as possible, so we can look for a local match that might tickle you[r] fancy!” The goal, according to the invitation is to “meet new people and have a great time!”
