LA hosts speed-dating event on train for Valentine’s Day

As soon as Sam Oglesby stepped onto the Red Line car with roommate Jack Meighan, they introduced themselves to a nearby woman and began talking over the din — the roar of the train and the unusual chatter of nearly two dozen strangers. Two Metro cupids in red and white costumes, wings and all, made rounds with passengers who rode from Union Station to Hollywood and back on designated cars adorned with hearts, garland-wrapped poles and cupid window stickers. Enthusiastic Metro employees welcomed ladies to trains that lacked them or pointed out men to mingling women. A man in a neon vest blew his whistle to signal a switch every two minutes with a rhythmic shoulder shake. Media and Metro employees swarmed some of the emptier cars, but the energy was high on many trains, with daters standing in the aisles or chatting in groups. He bought them from a vendor after a Metro employee asked if he wanted to try speed dating. Would today be the day? Someone will get this rose today, he said.
