AGENCE FRANCE PRESS -- Sept 7 -- A pair of French cooking schools are starting "cook-dating." Last fall they began a weekly cooking class for singles only -- three men and three women on the first three Thursdays of every month, and a "gays only" gathering of men or women on the last. The Ritz Escoffier cooking school will began singles-only classes next week.
Mark Brooks: I'd so like to see large online dating companies embrace singles events again. Small events don't make much money but are a great way to differentiate and add character to a site. I teamed Predating.com up with Cupid.com last year. A marriage made in heaven and a unison that will be nigh impossible to duplicate.
