At least not so far. But now that we know that single women in New York take hobbyist classes in the hopes of meeting that special someone

“You would think you would meet some good men,” said [Charlotte] Kullen, 34, who lives near Union Square in New York and is the vice president of marketing for Bellmarc Realty. “But there just aren’t any.”

“I’ve been in tennis for four months and there’s maybe one guy out of six people,” she said. “They start getting cute because there’s no one else to look at.”

I’m betting extracurricular courses around the City will have to start waiting lists pretty soon, as they transform more into meat markets than instructional activities.

As for why guys tend to shy away from these venues, here’s my perspective: Having fun with a pastime doesn’t equate with keeping a regular schedule. To me, it becomes a chore, and any joy I might have experienced from it evaporates because of that.

Secondarily, as far as the sporting clubs go: Participating in athletic competition and meeting women almost seems to be cross-purpose. For a lot of guys, ramping up to hyper-competitiveness comes easy, and that state of mind doesn’t necessarily make you attractive to the opposite sex — especially when they’re the competition on the field. It seems like a potential landmine best avoided.

So, as good an ideas as voluntary coursework may seem for singles meeting singles, it’s probably not going to appeal to the male part of the equation.

Only Tara would pick up beauty tips — excuse me: vaginal beauty tips — from Business 2.0.

So how did Betty, the muff hair dye for today’s colored-coif woman who wants to match her curtains with her drapes, work out for Tara?

My betty had turned to the color that I had wanted just after the first treatment though, but I continued on with the color too as per the directions. The instructions also recomended trying a sample patch first, but I figured, what the heck let’s go all in and luckily my gamble paid off. Overall, I found the whole process to be easy, exciting and had me giggling.

Final caveat, this could get addictive!

What else can I add, other than: Look out below!

Overheard on the street:

Don’t worry about him. True professionals don’t have hangovers.

Unfortunately for me, these days I maintain an amateur status. And that’s a regression: In my younger days, I took pride in never experiencing hangovers, in spite of best efforts on nights before to wind up with them. It was a physiological trait that my college friend Tom and I shared, and which we’ve both somehow lost with age.
