Nowadays, it seems as though everyone is staying inside, playing video games, surfing the web and streaming online video services. In short, there are fewer opportunities to meet women in social settings due to our stay-at-home culture. Though you can dip your toes in the waters of online dating, there are countless men taking this same approach.
Instead, it is better to attempt to meet women in public places where you can make a positive and lasting first impression. These in-person conversations give you a chance to “nab the digits” and set yourself up for success through a much more meaningful face-to-face interaction as opposed to trading messages from behind a computer screen. Without further adieu, let’s take a look at the best places to meet women.
The Dog Park
If you own a dog, visit the local dog park on the weekend or Friday evening. You are likely to find at least one other single woman taking her dog for a walk. If you do not yet own a dog and would not mind welcoming a pet into your home, adopt one and you will have an immediate “in” with women who also enjoy the presence of pets. Your appreciation for dogs provides the all-important common ground and icebreaker to strike up a conversation that might lead to a meaningful relationship.
The Grocery Store
Take a look in the shopping cart of the woman you have your eye on at the grocery store, compliment her on her taste and segue into conversation. Even if you do not find one of her grocery store items to be remarkable in any way, say something – anything – about an item in her cart to break the ice. Pivot to another subject and continue to conversation until you exchange phone numbers.
Yoga is all the rage these days. Sign up for a yoga class and you are sure to meet an in-shape and highly flexible woman who makes a concerted effort to live a healthy life. In fact, you might be one of the few guys at the yoga class so you should have plenty of women to pick from.
Women love to hang out at coffee shops. However, it is a mistake to plunk down your laptop computer at a coffee shop and stare into the screen for hours on end, expecting a woman to approach you. Rather, take a seat with your coffee and scope out the room. Introduce yourself to the woman you have your eye on, enjoy a conversation and ask for her number before you exit the coffee shop.
It is no secret that women love to shop. Head on out to your local mall and you are sure to find countless women strolling about, looking for new clothes, grabbing a bite to eat in the food court or simply searching for someone to socialize with. This is your opportunity to spark up a conversation, get a phone number or two and set yourself up for a date.
Sign up for a Cooking Class
Few single men attend cooking classes so there is a good chance you will have your pick of the litter so to speak when attending such an instructional session. Even if you do not find a single woman who meets your criteria at a cooking class, you will learn important new cooking skills that eventually help you impress a potential significant other. Perhaps the best part about cooking classes is participants are often forced to pair up with one another to make a dish. This provides the perfect opportunity to strike up a conversation with your assigned partner and possibly exchange numbers for a future date.
