No real reliance on technology, just the practically antiquated idea of a group of people meeting to see if any sparks fly.
Here is how the organisers of the event describe it: "Sick of your ma hassling ya about settling down?
"That's what it's about." Having subscribed to The Plankton's blog, I read it with increasing impatience at her world view, even though I am programmed to empathise with other women.
She is unwaveringly negative, hyper-analytic and convinced that she is worthless as a sexual partner, yet quick to dismiss anything that doesn't conform to her ideal.
The event will take place from 7pm to 10pm on Saturday 19 January at the Fumbally Stables in Dublin 8, with drinks supplied by Jameson Irish Whiskey.
After that, the party will continue as they head into town, and the event is open to the single, and to the wingpeople of the single.
It's always young 20 and thirtysomethings with their biological clocks ticking and a penchant for guys who drive expensive cars," he continues. Nor do we generally need anything else from a relationship other than the pleasure of the relationship itself.
"So, apart from internet dating, which I have tried with some success and which I advocate, how and where else can we expect to meet single women like yourself? By the time you get to our age, the other stuff -- work, home, kids, social life -- tends to be sorted. And because older women are a self-contained proposition, this makes us extremely attractive to men who can see beyond our less than dewy collagen.

The middle-aged men she considers eligible are rich Notting Hill types who fancy thin, dim 23-year-olds. Why would any grown-up woman worth her salt want to be with a man like that in the first place? We are not all trapped inside a Richard Curtis movie, are we?

I read another post from The Plankton, which confirms that yes, being single, middle aged and female does mean already being dead: "It's pitch black in my bedroom when I turn my light out, and completely silent," she writes.
"Sometimes, difficult nights, with no one beside me any more, and never again being a very real possibility, I feel I am already in my coffin." Wow, I think. Luckily, within seconds, normal transmission resumes inside my head.
