If you're a female, where do you meet guys?


Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of trying to meet other women to date.


I go to a gym but I find it awkward to strike up a conversation when working out. I'm not sure the best way to talk to someone when they seem to be focused on their work out. Have you ever been approached at the gym and how did it work out?


Clubs and bars aren't a good option because I don't have a lot of single friends to go out with to meet women.


So I'm curious to hear where you, if you are a female where you met your BF or husband and how did you start dating. If you're a guy, where did you meet your GF or wife. Thanks.

Caveat: I am not a female... ;-)


But I think I have read statistics suggesting that most people meet their future partner in their social circle. This especially goes for workplace or while performing hobbies. From my own observations, that seems plausible.


I sometimes wonder if doing voluntary work would have the added benefit of meeting more members of the opposite sex?

I met my last 2 boyfriends at work. I don't go to the gym so I don't know what the vibe is like there. I am wondering the same thing, where to meet guys. Personally I am not suspicious and quite open so I would appreciate any effort for chatting someone made, like while in the park, ask to join me for coffee while I'm at the cafe. But I think a lot of people would find that intrusive

The gym is a great place to meet people (I mean, it shows you already have a common interest ), but at the same time it's hard to determine which women there are available and which aren't (short of a wedding ring).


But, that's the same case if you meet anyone in ANY kind of public setting. Personally, I met my boyfriend in a bar, but that's because one of the friends I was with had known him for years.


Socializing definitely helps, though. I think I met 95% of the guys I've ever dated as a result of hanging out with a group of friends.
