If so, where can I meet some?
No sometimes its hard to meet women at work... so you might want go somewhere!
bars or join a club.
What kind of club?
Any kind as long as there's girls.
What kind are popular with girls?
I wouldn't know... I don't leave my house hahah
Now you'll have to meet them in the work place or similar activities
Work place is a big no no
Not if you have a delivery job like me, doesn't have to be at work per say, that would be bad then
Have an opinion?
You just need to get out more.
Where should I go?
Events, house parties, meet friends of friends, activity clubs, bars, etc. Anywhere you can meet new people.
Don't really have many friends and I'm shy but I did join a sports club, im thinking of joining another one and I volunteer when I can.
You should do that, and make friends there too! It's one of the best ways of meeting new people - just expanding your social circles.
The sports club I joined has mainly older people as its a small local club. I'm thinking of joining a climbing or walking club too.
Which do you think will have more girls? Walking or climbing?
Not sure, but you can try both and find out.
It took me a lot of courage to go to the sports club first time though. And the climbing and walking clubs I chickened out of at the last minute. I also went to an open day for a voluntary role but it was too much of a commitment so I didn't do it. But there were a lot of girls my age there so I don't know if I should do it anyway.
I'm glad you went to the sports club, good on you. If you have a good friend, get them to go with sometime. It's not so bad going alone, though. I've been to meetups by myself and things, and you just have to be open and friendly, and most people are pretty welcoming. Take it a step at a time, but keep pushing yourself.
Thanks. You're a good person. I'm planning to go to the walking club and climbing clubs next week. Walking club is meeting at a station so I'll have to ask some people if they're with the club. The climbing clubs a pub social which I find awkward.
I've actually thought of messaging the organisers asking them if I can meet them somewhere first and then go to the place together as I get nervous but then I thought that might be a bit pathetic for a guy.
What do you think?
No worries. I know I was pretty nervous at my first time going to a group meeting alone too. It was a meetup at a bar to play some board games, and I'm pretty sure I stayed in the car for 10 minutes debating before forcing myself to just get out and go meet people haha. Actually, I think that's a pretty good idea. Once you meet them you'll probably feel more comfortable and at ease at the event, since you know someone. I'd do it!
But I'm a bit worried it might come across as pathetic.
Don't think that, it's not at all. It's the reasonable thing to do actually, can't believe I haven't before haha.
But I'm a guy.
Also, I really want to do either this walking or climbing club but there's also a particular voluntary opportunity I really want to do but it's a massive time commitment (18 hours a month). I probably won't be able to do the walking or climbing club as well if I do that.
I don't know if volunteering is a place where you can meet people to date either. Is it inappropriate like it is at work?
That is the dumbest reason I have ever heard to sacrifice your education.
I didn't sacrifice it
Yes I misread the question.
You just have to be social. Go to parties, bars, nightclubs... Etc
I feel too old for that now that I've left college.
Too old for what?
