I don't seem to have any luck with guys I meet online or through friends, so I'm wondering where everyone else is meeting people they're dating or in a relationship with. A lot of people say to go to bars, but I rarely drink and don't like the partying kind of scene. With this generation being so reliant on technology and social media, I'm wondering what ways there are to meet people.
Most Helpful Guy
1) Online dating... except at a distance. The locals are boring, like you've said so try over seas, or maybe one Country over? I highly recommend it.
2) While shopping. I've met a few great girls while trying on shirts and pants. In your case you can open a cute guy by asking his opinion on your pants, or shoes or hat. It doesn't matter. If you want to know if he's single you might try... "Why, would you buy something like this for your girlfriend, or is this out of style now?" Or something clever.
This includes shopping for groceries or lamps. Anywhere there's cute guys is open game for you. Just realize you're going to have to rely upon yourself for driving the conversation, where as a bar allows you to sit back more and allow guys to approach you. So the trick is to be both approachable, and super friendly. Smile, eye contact, etc.
3) Hmmm... Online social gatherings like Meetup. com is another good one, especially if you find activities you like doing... like Geo Cacheing? Or playing boardgames? I don't know, seems like a good place to meet new people.
