For the last few months after I broke up, I tried all my way to release my anger, fear, anxity and depression. I went to the bars, drank, got drunk, meet people online.. As a person who went through all of these and have met quite a few people that we really liked each other, now I'm sitting here want to share my feelings and experience on how to meet good people.
1. Go out with friends and meet their friends
This is of course one of the easiest ways to meet new people. Either to go to a friend's birthday party or just go to a bar and have a drink with them would help you to meet someone new. This way is especially useful for shy people who don't dare to go out alone.
2. Dating apps give some help as well
Nowadays people deal everything online, including dating. No doubt that these dating apps help us to meet somebody new, and I've heard some friends told me that they've met their love through those apps. Indeed they are not bad because I also met my love on a site, but that's not a dating site, it's a site used for travellings. So if you are shy or too busy to go out, then chat with some interesting people online and try to meet them and consider if you want to continue.
3. Go out ALONE
The reason I put this method into the last one, it's because this is the most useful way. When I was younger I just went out with friend and only talked to my friends, but I never meet new people. The time when I really went out alone is from several months ago, when me and my ex broke up, I felt there's no way out and I didn't want to talk with my friends, so I went out drinking alone. Everytime I go out, besides the free drinks I can get, the most interesting thing for me is to meet people. Some of the guys are not my type but there are quite a few, we like each other and hit on well pretty much. A lot of people don't prefer to go out alone, they may think it's awkward and gives other people an impression that you don't have friends, but, who cares! Go out and you will get addicted to it. Especially for those pretty girls: go out, take a glance and see which bar has interesting guys and order a drink sit next to them, well, maybe leave one chair in between you and the guy in order not to give him an impression that you are a hook. And then wait for the moment. Most of the time they will invite me over and buy me a drink. The reason why I prefer this rather than meeting people on a dating site is not because of the free drinks I get, but because meeting people face to face is really amazing and attractive! With a little bit of alcohol and the right music rhythm, the moment will be more than romantic and the feeling will be more than satisfied. When you are on dating sites, you may find a person's pictures really attractive, but most of the time he lacks the property that you want him to have, and this you can't see it from internet. So even you think dating online saves time, this is not true! You wasted a lot of time chatting with him/her before you meet that person, but after meeting, you find it's disappointing, and this happens for most of the cases. So girls and guys, just go out ALONE and find attractive people and talk in a mature way, this not only for hook up but I promise it can also happen for a serious relationship.
Good luck girls and guys, wish all of us find the one!
