Anyone who’s ever written a dating profile has had to figure out what about themselves is a good selling point to potential mates. Sometimes that’s occupation. Sometimes it’s a resume of endurance sports. Could be the fact that you volunteered at an orphanage in Antarctica or that you’ve never seen Star Wars and are looking for someone to show you the ropes.

No one warned you that trying to meet new people in your 20s is just…weird. You start living on your own, enter the real world, and then there’s this strange limbo where you’re not playing flip cup on the weekends anymore, but you’re also not ready to talk about benefits packages and moving to the suburbs just yet.

We really do. So much so, that we’ve built our next story session around them. Think about it – most educators spend their days outside their peer group. Wouldn’t it be nice to curate an event especially for them, where we can hear about their lives beyond the chalkboard? Whether you’re a teacher, professor, instructor or lecturer – if you’re single, we’d like to give you the floor and hear what you have to say. We want to give you a night to mingle with some of Chicago’s single folk in a thoughtful and fun environment. And seriously, who doesn’t want to date a teacher?

Steph and I were looking over an article that was written about Me So Far back in February. Ashley Henshaw of City’s Best, now Huffington Post Chicago, did a really great job of capturing both the spirit and logistics of a Me So Far event. Some of the parameters have evolved since then (length of presentations, for example) but this article is worth a read if your interested in Me So Far or if you’re coming tomorrow night.

Definitely follow her.
