Online dating sites/apps have never worked out for me. A lot of the profiles simply weren't attractive to me, had bios that didn't tell me anything about them, or they were literal prostitutes and I was there to find a date, not pay for sex. Also, of the few people I swiped right on, most didn't match and none of the matches went anywhere.At work, I mostly deal with people who are twice my age, under 18, already in a relationship, shopping with their family, or otherwise not an option. I also don't tend to be in a very sociable mood at work. As for the other options, I don't go to the gym or to school, so with friends is my best option in my opinion. I'm more sociable and loosened up, I have people there to support me, and when it's at a bar or concert, there's an age limit and/or a tendency for people around my age to make up most of the crowd there.
Match. com online... and offline WHOLE FOODS! Easy Peasy!
How do ask someone out at whole foods?
Grab a glass of wine and run around the place and approach women. Ask them about their favorite recipes of whatever food they are looking at... would really love to continue to this conversation can I get your phone number? Or instagram? I use instagram that works really well!
you are genius, perhaps I should start to do this. Seriously
@tanya110290232 Whole Foods is the holy grail of cold approach for Men and Women. Try it out! If you have a glass of wine in your hands while you are shopping then you will probably get hit on! LOL
Oh I live in Germany. I will try it here :) wish me luck
Gotcha ! Good luck!
I gotta try that!
I don't have a method. I just live my life and someone comes along unexpectedly. I met my partner at the gym. There's a coffee shop in the gym, and we started chatting one day. Things developed and progressed from there. I've always met someone when I wasn't " looking " for a relationship.
This is how it should work in my opinion. Don't go out looking for a date, but if you see someone attractive, just let it happen. Approach if necessary. And don't force things after the icebreaking. Ironically, the harder you try, the harder it can become...
@Torari That's so true :)
So far? Nothing! I'd prefer to find someone at a place I frequent, like the gym/exercising, at a park, or stores I shop at regularly... that way I know we have something in common and it's easier to initially approach each other
Have an opinion?
Definitely meeting people in person, usually at a party/get-together with friends.
However it happened naturally, if that's possible.
As a young adult, at school or on my travels
School is the best place to me. Always nice little romantic spots around campus, shennanigans to be had, and what not lolEasier to meet lots of amazing guys in a casual environment
You make it sound as if getting a date is as easy as buying groceries.
Anywhere honestly , If i see a girl that catches my eye and we strike up a good conversation then i take the chance of asking to see her again. Dating to me is just taking the extra time to get to know someone and seeing how each others chemistry is together , dating to me isn't a commitment it's just a friendship that could possibly lead to more. And Yes i am not going to date a girl that i am not attracted to but it takes more then just looks for me to be committed to someone
I would take you on a date @brittslit cuz i think u look gorgeous but still would need to. get to know you 😁
Online, but I try to practice my social skills and meeting people in real life. I see online as just an extra tool. It hasn't happened to me, but expanding or sharpening your current network of those you know is always good
Online the popular choice so far... how sad. Id rather go out and meet a human being in the flesh. Millenials are fucking up the planet by playing directly into the agenda of the hidden hands who control this planet.
Although the eloquence in you're writing is slim, I do agree with you that that the hidden hands of the online beast system are ruining dating social culture with these arbitrary trends of on social media which seek to divide rather than equalize. In my experience, dating sites will pillage you're wallet and Facebook messaging will get you blocked.
Anywhere and everywhere. Life is too short not to just talk to whoever you feel like talking to.Be it the gym, the store, the park, online, or anywhere else. If i see someone attractive, I'll introduce myself. No harm in it, and if it ends in a date, so be it.I don't use tinder though, maybe i'm just bad at it but i never had any success there.
I just can't summon the guts needed to approach a guy I'm attracted to, in person. It's hard not to seem like a creep when you're total strangers. Unlike online, it's easy to just send one chat and say hi.
I say online, because if you ask someone you actually know, you don’t really know If they want to be in a relationship. Well using a dating site, there is a better chance they won’t reject and those people want to be in a relationship, in my opinion it’s less risky
Where ever I can find one :)But I'd prefer a place where I know we were all looking for someone to date instead of guessing that someone may or may not want to
I seem to meet guys in airports a lot, in fact all three of the boyfriends I've had. So I guess it's the airport.
I don’t like being hit on at the gym at all I’m trying to lose weight and that’s not where I feel the best lol. I’d say out with friends.
I am surprised that dating via the gym was the lowest voted way of finding a date. Considering that gyms will be littered with very attractive women (externally). Also, what are the main categories that would are the essence of the 'other' dating category in the poll?
Well i like to meet people in person as for dates i dont know, it doesn't matter which way i try, i always get friend zoned.
Im not in school do can't do that, online dating doesn't work well for men, grocery store is creepy, I've got a home gym so that's a no and I'm a petroleum mechanic so in other words no women in my workplace... so out with friends is the only way
My preferred is out with friends, but that's quite difficult unless you actually hang out with her. I'm no longer in school, and work doesn't seem smart, so I just go with online dating, after all, it's what most people use anyways.
My preferred method of finding a date? Woman walks right up to me and assumes relations immediately, takes me arm-in-arm directly to my car.
Don't have a preferred method :P I hate em all. If I lived somewhere with an anarchist community I would like to find one there, but the people who call themselves anarchists in my. town are actually IDIOT COMMIES
I would've liked to find someone when I was still at school, but I'm kinda stuck with online dating. I'm shit at approaching girls in public. Mostly because I'm all personality
I haven’t ever had to look. If someone wants to ask me, they’ll find a way to ask me.
Any out door setting is a win win for me. I haven't ever tried online dating I keep saying one day I will. But so far I'm doing okay in real life.
Hiking? Climbing? Camping? Canoeing?
Going to set next to a cute guy and asking him “is this seat taken” are the best options to start a convo and to score a date with a hot guy. :-)
You go, Girl!😎👍
Life is for the brave ones they say Guardian45 :-D
YUP! Be Bold and Proud!
All they can do is say, No thanks!
I will throw all my charms on the table so that all they ever want to say is “Yes, please, miss” haha :D
I think I’m pretty bold already ^_^
Where are you from Sweetheart?
I’m from Belgium :) x
Nice! Its beautiful there!
Are you Flemish?
I wouldn’t mind visiting the US one day :) But flight tickets are expensive hehe. It’s okay here. We have a small country but I like it.
I’m Flemish, yes :)
But I speak both French and Dutch ^_^
I use what I have:1. Internet2. Public transportRest of time I can't meet new people, so, it would be stupid thinking I would find anything not meeting new people.
I don't look for anybody anymore. Stopped long time ago.
As did i. Reasons are probably different. But i also stopped looking. I find women more often when im just living and not searching for a person to be with.
@Egoless_M0rtal My actual age isn't exactly "21" either.
1) Online but not on dating websites (more like spontaneously meeting them in a group chat or something like that).2) In College/ Uni
I voted other. I will only date you if I have known you for quite a bit and know what kind of person you are.
Newspaper in the classifieds/personals. Yes, that was before internet
I don't have a preferred method. I let things play out. If you try too hard most of the time it just blows up in your face.
Real life, from same college or uni. Or through mutual friends.
I go to a few different bars mostly and I sometimes find a companion. I do okay in that setting for some reason.
well , i usually tried to get contact with some old friends from high school/collegethe other way is wedding party , it is really the best place to meet women ime
lol... just let me know where I can find the woman in the photo!
Lately, waiting for a random stranger to show up at my door.Hasn't worked out too well.
At work since I spend most of my time there and is full of young people, also, college, at parties, friends, tinder (only if is to hookup)
I don't know really, I just graduated high school so everyone I've ever dated was from there, I don't know how to find dates anymore xD
While im out and about. For whatever reason I tend to get dates when I'm alone.
The drunk tank at the local police station or the psych ward are probably among my favourites...
I would prefer that women just appear and fall into my lap... have to figure out how
Go out and exist. I’ll soon find a guy trying to talk to me.
Arranged marriage. Best part, if it doesn't work, you can't be blamed. GENIUS
Career fair, very convenient since all the cute girls bring their résumé with them.
it is not expected and planned act. i live mylife without any expectetions so it can happen on top of hill or at gym or at the airport or...
Online, just because the other options are not available to me, lol
I'm still waiting for the woman of my dreams to show up on my doorstep... 😁
Previously it had been OKCupid, but that site has really gone downhill in the last few years.
Online, seems to be the only place people have time for in their busy schedules.
Blindfolding my self and swinging in the air till I hit somebody
If I find a method then I will tell you. Its been very dry for awile lol
Preferbly id like women to hit on me when im out
nowadays online or in park or working area... but still searching for her...
At school/College 🥰
I voted other. I don't date.
Bars fa sho!
Anything outside of online.
Almost anywhere because I am very direct.
In the gym out with friends at the grocery store
All of the above except for A
