Dating; the word can be enough to send shivers down a girl’s spine, leave her smiling at the thought, or quite simply have her wondering ‘where are all the single men over 30 in this town’? Before anyone even dares to mention the words ‘gay’ or ‘married’ let us just remind ourselves that dating is a numbers game. But is it really, or has it simply become the modern day pass time for the young single professional?
As a single girl in the city, dates have a way of finding you when you’re least expecting them. You might be walking home from the gym, minding your own business in the city square, or chatting with a man in a gay bar – who turns out to be straight. It’s unpredictable and that’s the confusing thing.
Despite whether we are looking for it or not, it seems there is no more certainty of a successful date with a random guy you meet on the street than there is with a carefully matched profile retrieved from a sea of men in the world of internet dating.
From dates endured listening to karaoke, or having his best mate tag along, to an evening of being sneezed on, there is never any shortage of interesting stories you can share, much to the delight of your married friends.
This fun game we play, made more challenging by the fact we know more now of what we want in a man than we did five years ago, has to be entertaining social networking at its best.
For single women over 30 there are two choices: go hunting for a man or let life sling you one by happy accident. I think the accidental choices are more fun.
And on that note I’ll have another martini, thanks.

I know a science professor who has commented that in the past, if her young son was invited to a birthday party, the present had to be bought from Safeway or 7eleven or it just didn't happen.
