It’s New Year’s Eve and you don’t want to spend it alone. You’re single and adult. What to do?
If you’re like other singles, you’ve just googled it. Maybe you typed into your search bar “Long Island singles” or “Boulder singles”. If so you’re not alone. Those are the most popular search engine terms today, December 31, 2007.
Forget the “furniture” and “living room sets” that were most popular last week. With 2008 on the horizon, it’s time to party and hookup with other people. You can take comfort in knowing that others like you are out there googling for connections. But this is where the virtual and real worlds disconnect–finding New Year’s Eve parties online that you’d actually like to attend in person.
If you can’t find the party you’re hoping for end up enjoying your own company this New Year’s Eve (perhaps reading a good book and drinking a bottle of wine), you’re not the only person who has reached the outer limit of the internet. Maybe one of the social networking sites will make a New Year’s resolution to figure out a way for people to really connect.
