Personally I've been out of what was a consistent dating loop due to work related issues, although it's complicated as I still think it'd have been possible to date during that time.
Now I'm back and I'm literally starting fresh, I haven't really spoken to any girls over the last 6 months and have just come back to my home town where a lot of people I knew have since moved on. So I don't really know where to start as far as trying to find a potential date goes. I'm tempted to join a few clubs if I can fit it around work just to interact with new people, otherwise I have to try and approach girls randomly which I'm personally horrendous at due to poor self confidence.
But how do you personally go about starting fresh after being out of the dating loop? and do you have any tips that work for you?
Thanks if you take the time to read all of this and answer.

First thing - don't go girl hunting. The air of desperation is strong and it drives girls away, even if they'd normally be interested. When guys have that feel of 'PLEASE, GO OUT WITH ME.' it really makes a girl wonder why everyone else has turned you down. There's OBVIOUSLY something wrong with you. Which, of course, isn't true. You're just out of the loop.
Finding social groups to join is an awesome plan. Honestly, if you really want to hit a gold mine of 'girls only', try for things like a painting or pottery class. Something more on the artsy side that you'll honestly enjoy, but that largely has a more female demographic.
Don't ask girls out on the first day. Sit back, get to know them, and just be social. Every girl is not the one for you, but you never know when she might just become that friend who introduces you to her hot cousin.0
