Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending Cupid's Cousin's "The Missing Piece" event. It was so wonderful and refreshing to be able to go to an event where there weren't a bunch of old men looking for some young, fresh meat. The crowd was diverse, the dj was nice, and all in all I would say that the night was an all around success. The event coordinators had the genius idea to have every female wear a small lock around their neck and to have the guys wear a key around their wrist. The object of the exercise was to go around and have a conversation to find "the missing piece." Every lock had two keys that matched. Initially, I was a little reserved. I mean, what exactly was I supposed to say? "Hey, does your key fit in my lock?" Well I decided that the first step was to just say "Hi!" and let the conversation go wherever from there. To my surprise, it worked! I met a lot of great people and I was even invited to another party by one of the guys that I met. Although I saw a lot of college friends there, I also had the opportunity to network with other young professionals around the city. I really appreciate the time and effort that the ladies of Cupid's Cousin put into this event and I can't wait for the next one.
Unfortunately, the guy who held the key to my lock left just before I did so I didn't have the chance to meet him. But maybe our paths will cross again and he'll be at the next event.
