There are so many different places to meet potential dates. Sometimes it feels as if there isn’t, especially after you get out of high school but rest assured, the opportunities are out there. Sometimes it just takes a bit more creativity. Let me give you some inspiration concerning places to meet potential dates.
1. The Grocery Store
Yes, this one sounds common and completely mundane. It does not sound at all like one of the places to meet potential dates. But I assure you, it can happen. I actually have a cousin who met his wife in the grocery store. So keep your eyes open when you go grocery shopping because you just never know if you are going to see an attractive guy. If you do, don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with him.
2. Through Mutual Friends
Meeting through mutual friends is a great way to meet a date. This is actually one of the most common ways to meet people. It is how my husband and I met. Don’t be afraid to ask your friends if they know someone who might be good for you to go out with. It could be a total flop or you could be meeting the love of your life, like I did. You won’t know unless you try.
So many people are meeting online these days. It is becoming more common than ever. There is a huge world of possibilities when you look into meeting dates online. It is just extremely important that you are careful when you do this. Most of time things can work out fine but there are times when danger is a possibility.
4. In the Workplace
You can absolutely meet people in the workplace for dates. It can have its complications, that is true. It is even truer if the person you are interested in dating is your boss. But there are ways that it can be handled with class if it happens. It only makes sense that a lot of people meet dates at work because they spend a lot of their time there.
5. At a Restaurant
You can meet dates when you are at a restaurant. I would never advise you to be scoping out the scene for potential dates if you are already out on an actual date with someone. But if you are out with your girlfriends and you see a cute guy, why not strike up a conversation? See where it goes. It could go nowhere or it could lead to some great date potential.
6. Out Shopping
You can meet guys out shopping. Just keep your eyes open. That tip goes for pretty much anywhere you are. Be sure to look around the sections and stores where guys are most likely to be if you are making it a goal to search for potential dates. One good thing about meeting a guy that is out shopping - you know he likes to shop so going shopping together will never be an issue between the two of you.
7. At School
School is usually a great place to meet guys, whether you are still in high school or college. They don’t particularly have to be someone who is in your grade or class. It can be a guy you pass in the hall or frequently catch the eye of when you have lunch. Don’t be afraid to make the first move. You don’t have to ask him out but you can let him know you are interested.
These are 7 ideas to get you started on places you can meet potential dates. Where did you meet your guy? I would love to hear your story.
