I've been using dating sites for a while since I've been single and it has not helped much.
So what are some other ways to meet potential dates?
Or is the best way through mutual friends?

Mutual friends - not a bad way to meet people, but not the only way.
Why don't you go out in the world a bit more and just see who you run into? Maybe spend some time in coffee shops, bookstores, or whatever places you enjoy? If you see a girl you think is cute, smile from where you are and see if she smiles back. If she does, try going over and striking up a conversation with her. Your odds are as good or better than in a clubbing environment. It's hard to really connect with another person in a bar. Try the rest of the world! Volunteer for a cause you care about, or just spend time at places where other people will be, and see what happens.1

You gotta climb up a ferris wheel then threaten to jump off if she doesn't agree to a date.1
