Get creative. A girl I know volunteered for the SPCA, rescuing animals and trying to get them adopted. They would bring the animals to places around town and set up little booths to let the public see and interact with the animals they were trying to adopt out. She's gotten a couple of different dates that way, and even when not dating, she likes what she's doing, and it gets her out and meeting/talking to new people.
