According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there were 89.8 million unmarried and single residents in this country in 2005. That equals 41 percent of all Americans age eighteen and older. And 54 percent of those singles are women. So why in hell is it so difficult to get a date? Maybe it is because, as Jerry Seinfeld once pointed out, 95 percent of the population is undateable. Although not everyone can be lucky enough to find their perfect mate while volunteering to get drunk for rookie cops in DUI training class, we are sure your special someone is out there. Tonight you can go on twelve quick and painless six-minute dates at the Cupid.com Miami Speed Dating event. All single professionals -- and those who consider themselves professional singles -- ages 25 to 35 are invited to dress to impress (that means no mandals, tank tops, or flip-flops) and see if they can spark a chemical reaction with another lonely soul. The love search begins at 7:30 at Oxygen Lounge. Admission costs $35. Advance registration is required. Call 877-477-3328, or visit www.cupid.com/predating.
