Somewhere a single woman is complaining that there aren't any good men in her area. That same woman is giving this complaint over the phone to her girlfriend as she sits in her "house-comfy" clothes, sprawled over her couch. There is a large population of women out there that complain they can't seem to get a date because they are waiting on Prince Charming to come and knock on their door. This is a common mistake that often goes ignored. How can one know that you're available and seeking something worthwhile when they don't even know you exist? It's time you get out of the house for something other than going back and forth to work. I don't mean going out, either. Getting out means so much more than going out to nightclubs and bars with your girlfriends and/or the fellas. Here are a few ways to increase your chances of meeting a new potential partner while building yourself an exciting social life.
Attend workout classes
The gym can sometimes be an intimidating place, but it is also a great way to meet others who are serious about remaining healthy and being fit. Join a coed workout class where you can get a good workout, and maybe snag a few new fitness pals. You never know who you may meet!
Check out some poetry spots
Try something new and head out to a venue that does poetry and spoken word nights. It's not a club setting, but it's a nice event to mingle with interesting people who appreciate art. The low key setting makes for great conversation and good vibes.
There aren't too many women that don't love shopping. Instead of always shopping online, get out in the daytime and go check out the deals and selections at your local malls and boutiques. This can double as exercise as well another opportunity to socialize with others. Malls are crowded with many different types of people. Grab lunch at the food court, and don't be afraid to strike up friendly conversation with others.
Give speed dating a try
Don't roll your eyes. Speed dating can seem intimidating, but it is a great way to meet a lot of new people in a short time. You're not obligated to go home with someone, and the pressure isn't on you to make a love connection right away like you may think. Don't be afraid to have a few laughs and interact with other singles.
Join organizations or social groups
A great way to socialize with people of different backgrounds is to join a social club or organization. Find a cause that interests you, and begin to volunteer. This will not only give you a rewarding experience, but you will get to meet other like minded individuals who are interested in making a difference.
