Singles Awareness Day!!!!! (Singles Salsa Night @ Conga Club)

Singles Awareness Day or "SAD" is a humorous holiday celebrated to get away from the commercialism associated with the 14th. It serves as an alternative to Valentine's Day for people who are single, that is, not involved in a romantic relationship. Some people who observe SAD do so out of spite for Valentine's Day, as a Hallmark holiday, or for other reasons.

On Singles Awareness Day, single people gather to celebrate or to commiserate in their single status. Some want to remind romantic couples that they don't need to be in a relationship to celebrate life.

 

This event is for all of you singles in the Portland area who are tired of meeting people that are already married or "taken" and want to be more involved in the singles scene. This is a great event for those wanting to meet real high quality singles without wasting time or spending money on dating services.

Since Portland is such a small city, it is hard to find these good quality singles in the area. Almost the majority of high quality people you often meet here are unfortunately married, in a relationship or just flat out not interested. I hope to play my part and help people connect with other like-minded singles who feel the same way. You'll never know if you'll end up meeting a potential interest at the event and maybe exchange contact info to see him/her again in the future. Not everyone will have the same chemistry, so please don't take it personally if you get rejected.

If you're single and like to hang out, have fun and meet other singles who potentially want to hang out or date outside of Meetup events, then this event is definitely for you!

You'll never know if you end up meeting a Valentine. 

***THIS EVENT IS NOT FOR THOSE WHO ARE EXTREMELY SHY AND ARE LOOKING FOR QUIET 1 ON 1 SOCIAL TIME. THIS EVENT WILL BE A BIG SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE, SO I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO COME OUT, MEET AND DANCE WITH NEW PEOPLE. MOST IMPORTANTLY, HAVE FUN! DON'T BE SHY!***

This event is strictly for singles. No couples allowed. The reason for this is that it gives all who attend the assurance that whomever they speak to is single. This applies to guests attending too.

--------------------------------------

I'll be hosting this year's singles event at Conga Club. Conga Club is a great place for salsa dancing and they usually have live salsa bands performing every Saturday night. Salsa clubs are great places to meet single people.

If you never danced salsa before or it's your first time, there is a free beginners salsa lesson that starts at 9pm. Be sure to arrive early for the salsa lesson.

How to find us:

This one should be easy. When you enter the door, you will see the stage and the big dance floor. I'll be hanging out at one of the tables by the dance floor until the salsa lesson starts at 9pm. Look for the Meetup sign on the table.
