Shoppers at a Winnipeg grocery store were checking out more than just the produce aisle this week. Hundreds of curious Winnipeggers showed up at a local Safeway to shop for the perfect mate after the unusual dating event was organized online for Tuesday night. People looking for love were told to tie a bag on their wrist, shopping cart or basket to identify themselves as single. Amid the boxed cereal and pasta aisles, singles like Alana Squire sparked conversations and bonded over this new way to meet potential partners. Kelley Robinson, a social psychologist, was at the event to observe the interactions. She said Winnipeg lacks a strong singles culture, and events such as this one fills that void.
