Peynet's lovers

Italian News - February 9

On Feb. 13, thousands of young people will pour onto the streets of Milan, Paris and Barcelona. But they won't be protesting, they'll be looking for love.

The Valentine's Eve street parties, dubbed "St. Single's Day," are sponsored by Paris-based Meetic.com, Europe's leading Web matchmaker. The festivities will include DJs and speed-dating stands, where singles have only a few minutes to chat up a potential partner.
