Columbus, OH (PRWEB) February 9, 2006
Valentine’s Day is coming up which means Love, Passion & Romance is screaming at us from every direction. Top news stories, radio talk show hosts, advertising media and Hallmark are having a great time promoting this one day that is set apart for Romance, Red Wine and Roses. It’s a great ‘holiday’ for couples. For unattached Single, not having that special person becomes even more obvious at Valentines. It makes many feel like there must be a big ‘L for Loser’ on their foreheads.
The reality is that with over 50% of the Heads of Households being ‘Single’ today, there are many attractive, intelligent singles in Columbus who have found success in their lives with the exception of the whole ‘love’ thing. They are in their late twenties, busy with professions; in their thirties and forties, busy as single parents and in their fifties and sixties; reeling from divorce after 20 years of marriage. They are your lawyers, your accountants, your hair stylists and your Maytag repairmen.
Take out the percentage who are ‘attached’ or those who have no desire to meet someone special (hard for some to understand), there is still a large group of Singles in search of that special person in their lives. The question becomes ‘where do they find them?’
Park Place Singles has an answer that seems to be working very well for many Columbus Singles. Offering the opportunity to meet ‘offline’ at fun local activities and events as well as ‘online’ through their exclusive Members Only Website, Park Place is celebrating a successful first year of connecting Singles in friendship and romance.
Last February, the first Valentines Happy Hour Party marked the grand opening of Park Place Singles resulting, so far, in over 200 members, 1 marriage, an engagement and many strong relationships – both friends and romance. Over 30% of new members come from current member referrals.
Audra Stewart, one of the founders, said "At Park Place, we’re not all looking for the same type of relationship, but we are all looking for more fun, relaxed options of meeting and socializing with others. Added to that is a comfort level afforded by the knowledge that members are screened for any reported convictions of a physically violent or threatening nature through a national background check."
Park Place invites Singles in Columbus to check them out and to join their celebration this Friday. It promises to be a night of fun and a great opportunity to dispel those Valentine’s Blues.
