If you're single and looking for love, you could go the celebrity route and audition for The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, thereby joining the ever-expanding list of failed engagements. If that doesn't spark your interest, there are always dating sites. A word of caution: You might get set up with a 60-year-old posing as a 25-year-old bodybuilder. My mother always said to never judge a book by its cover, but when it comes to online dating, isn't the cover all you really get? Meet other real singles this Labor Day weekend at the Singles' Dating Convention at the Plano Centre. The action begins Friday from 6:30 to 10 p.m. with live comedy hypnosis by Clay Wooten. Then, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, singles can Zumba and speed-date their way into the arms of Mr./Miss Right. The cost of this love soiree is $39 in advance and $59 at the door. For more information, call 888-362-9903 or visit singlesdatingconvention.com.
