The Best Places To Meet Guys
For those of you who didn’t get the memo, I am attempting to start dating again after a long sabbatical. The thing is – and I know this is not the case for everyone, but I hate online dating. It’s just not me, I have lots of friends who have met great guys, but it’s just not my scene. Since I’m not a bar scene girl and friends set-ups come and go, I have to get a little more creative. Here are my tips for snagging a guy IRL. If you have any feel free to share in the comments!
1. Sports Leagues
When you join a league (trampoline dodgeball, kickball, softball, basketball…whatever), you meet a ton of new people and will probably end up grabbing food or drinks with them after your game.
Many of us are not in school any more however there are plenty of other classes you can take lessons in – cooking, wine tasting, improv, painting…etc
3. Coffee Shops
Grab a book or your computer, sit there for a few hours and I’ll bet someone will come up to you.
This is just too easy. The guys are already sweaty and half-naked ladies! Whether it’s the gyms grunting and power lifting to ones in spin or yoga you’re sure to easily meet someone.
5. Grocery Store
Especially around the meat area… ask a guy if he knows how to pick the perfect cut of meat – it’s a conversation starter that can lead to more.
6. Golf or Hunting Store
Seriously do you know how many eligible bachelors you’ll find. Note you may have to talk about boring things like golf or hunting.
7. Birthday Parties
Friends party or kids party its an ideal place to meet a new guy. Everyone is happy at a birthday party, they know someone you know and you never know what could happen.
8. Sports Bar
Hit a sports bar the next time a game is on. Wear a tee with the logo of the team you\’re cheering for, and sit near a guy rooting for the same team. You’ll connect over your shared fandom.
Have you ever tried a color run or obstacle course? It’s a great way to meet a ton of new people. Especially at obstacle course races guys will always help you out!
10. Sporting Events
You’re both there for the same reason…. The love of your team – great conversation starter.
