Press release from: Society of Single Professionals

Sadie Hawkins Day allows single women to ask for what they want... and get it!

San Rafael, CA, October 18, 2012 -- (For Immediate Release) Contact: Tom Andrews, 415/507-9962

Once a year single women can ask for whatever they want...and get it. At this year's annual Sadie Hawkins Day Dance, Friday, November 9, 2012, 8pm-Midnight, men are not allowed to say no if a woman asks them to dance. The party is at Handle's at The Pleasanton Hotel, 855 Main Street, Pleasanton CA 94566.. Contrary to popular belief, Sadie Hawkins Day does NOT occur on Leap Day. It happens every November 15.

"Single women have lots of complaints about single men," says Rich Gosse, Chairman of The Society of Single Professionals, the world's largest non-profit singles organization. "One of the biggest is men who turn them down when asked to dance. How rude! At our Sadie Hawkins Day Dance, men will NOT have that option. Sadie Hawkins Day is a wonderful opportunity for single women to be assertive and get what they want in life, rather than follow the disastrous strategy of playing hard to get."

Rich Gosse, author of eight books on dating, is available to the news media to discuss Sadie Hawkins Day in the context of bachelorettes fulfilling their romantic needs, by calling 415/479-3800.

Sadie Hawkins Day, an American folk event, made its debut in Al Capp's Li'l Abner strip on November 15, 1937. Sadie Hawkins was "the homeliest gal in the hills" who grew tired of waiting for the fellows to come a courtin'. Her father, Hekzebiah Hawkins, a prominent resident of Dogpatch, was even more worried about Sadie living at home for the rest of his life, so he decreed the first annual Sadie Hawkins Day, a foot race in which the unmarried gals pursued the town's bachelors, with matrimony the consequence. By the late 1930s the event had swept the nation and had a life of its own. Life magazine reported over 200 colleges holding Sadie Hawkins Day events in 1939, only two years after its inception. It became a woman-empowering rite at high schools and college campuses, long before the modern feminist movement gained prominence.

Adults of all ages are welcome. $20 at the door includes dancing to current hits and oldies. Coat & tie/dressy attire is recommended. Anyone who wishes more information about this and many more singles parties may visit or call 415/507-9962.
