You’re on the prowl for a nice, cute, fun woman to date. Where are you going to find her?
You’re a nice guy, so maybe you think the bar scene is a bad idea – it may or may not be, we’ll get to that later.
When it comes to finding women to date, you have to be a bit creative and look for opportunities wherever they might arise, at the bar and elsewhere. Sometimes guys get lucky and are introduced to nice dateable women through friends or business associates.
Even though you might end up not liking the woman, people who know you have a pretty good idea of your personality and who might be a good fit, so if someone tries to play Cupid and fix you up with someone they know, give it a shot. The worst that could happen is that you won’t like each other. No harm done. And, best cast scenario, you could meet someone who you really do enjoy being around.
Don’t forget the opportunities that sound more like a sitcom side-story, like meeting a woman at the coffee house while waiting for your morning brew, or at the Laundromat, the grocery store, the gym or in line at the bank.
If you see someone you think is attractive, smile and say, “hi.” Who cares if you’re dripping with sweat from your workout or wearing your best business suit? If a woman strikes up a conversation with you, don’t shy away – talk to her. It could turn into something, and if it doesn’t, you got some practice anyway.
Depending on the type of work you do for a living, you may have many opportunities to meet women through your job. Some companies frown on dating among their employees, but there’s no harm in flirting a little, and if you’re not risking your job, you may find that there are plenty of single women at work.
This easy-to-follow manual to mastering the art of flirting offers indispensable advice on working the dating scene and reinvigorating your love life. Exploring key areas including listening and communication skills, body language and self-image, Flirting For Dummies provides readers with all the tools they need to boost their self-confidence and engage with people in a natural and charming way.
Be on the lookout for eye contact and smiles. If you have a job that requires you to travel a lot, you might meet someone on a flight, or at the hotel bar (a good place to go and unwind after a day full of meetings).
Don’t forget your hobbies. This is a great way to meet women with whom you have things in common. Join clubs or take classes related to your interests. Better yet, sign up for something you’re interested in, but haven’t yet tried. This gives you a chance to meet new people, and do something new at the same time.
You can meet nice women at the bar on Saturday night. Sometimes women are out having a drink with friends to celebrate a birthday or promotion – there’s nothing wrong with that, and if she’s there, it doesn’t mean she’s always there.
Just don’t think of the bar as your only dating pool. And if she’s had enough drinks to make her dance on the table, or sit on your lap even though you just met, she’s probably not what you’re looking for in Mrs. Right anyway.
