A lot of Long Islanders probably aren't aware of the many events that take place all over the island. Different companies and sponsors hold all different kinds of events for different occasions – including but certainly not limited to family events, nightlife events, music events, bridal events, and, yes, even events made just for singles.
We all know that finding the love of your life is a difficult and, sometimes, seemingly impossible task. For some people, it work and dedication. For singles who are older (perhaps divorcees and single parents) finding a partner seems to be even tougher.
It’s healthy to get out once in a while. So call your baby sitter or cancel your Full House marathon plans and head on out to one of these Long Island events for singles.
