This kind of question seems simple to people who are already attached…join one of the popular online dating sites? Go to a local bar and try your luck? Many singles already use these obvious approaches but the common outcome is that they never seem to progress past the first date!
If you’re looking for some real alternatives to meet genuine people, you need to be prepared to apply lots of energy and thought into the process and start thinking outside the box. Don’t expect to meet the person of your dreams at a night club or bar, the ideal environment in which to meet your soul mate plays a huge role, and the bar scene is by no way ideal. Try out some of these suggestions:
Always take opportunities to accept invitations to parties. If you hear about a cool party through a friend of a friend, make sure you try and score an invitation. House parties or organized functions are a brilliant way to be among other singles. You’ll get introduced to the other partygoers allowing you the chance to expand your network of friends.
Check out your hometown singles events. Log on to one of the free dating sites for up to date guides to see what’s on in your town. Local newspapers also broadcast the listings of singles mixers, and there’s always cool ideas on offer you have probably never though of such as happy hours, speed dating events, singles holidays and local parties.
Do something you’re passionate about, but in a group environment. Take up Asian cooking classes – there’s no better way to impress someone on a first date than to serve up some home cooked cuisine! Investigate local classes, sports teams, or any hobby that interests you. Doing things you love puts you in the ideal state of mind when meeting new guys and girls, and attracts others to you.
There’s new and innovative dating experiences available to you. There’s exciting functions you can attend through an online dating site such as dating in the dark, prearranged dinner parties and weekends away. Remember, you’re free, single and open to options, right? Trying new things and building your own life experiences will make you more confident and more approachable.
Get yourself into a routine to improve your own self-image by leading a healthy lifestyle. Always take the opportunity to talk to new people. It’s typical of human nature to be drawn to confident and successful people, so make yourself a saleable item and you’ll have the world at your feet! Happy searching!
