Places To Meet Men can be easier than you think, even if you are trying to avoid the bar scene. There are so many places to meet men that you go to regularly! In fact, some of these places you spend more time out than you do at home. Think about it, your favorite coffee shop, your work place -- there are tons of places to meet men! If you're having some problems meeting a guy, why not check out my top 10 places to meet a man besides a bar!

1 At Work

Where do you work? Chances are you either work among at least a couple of single men or have male customers. Starting up a conversation should be simple. Start with work related topics and slowly over time get more personal. Of course, if your office has a strict no dating rule, this option may be out. It never hurts to brush up on your employee handbook though!

2 Gym

The gym is another one of the greatest places to meet men. Don’t slack off on your work out by chatting up the buff hotties, and don’t bother them while they are working out. Instead wait until they are wrapping up, headed out, or getting a drink. Start by asking about a certain machine or ask for advice on protein shakes. Men love to share what they are interested in, if you show interest you could get a good conversation going! It’s better to ask questions than pretend to know what you are talking about.

The best part about using your friends house as one of the places to meet men is that your friend already likes him! Tell your buddy to have a party and invite you all over. Don’t make it like a blind date, just and innocent chance meeting. No pressure for anyone!

7 Volunteering

Volunteering is one way to meet men. You can volunteer at an animal shelter, food bank, recycle center, orphanage, picking up trash in the park, or a place like Habitat for Humanity. Just show up ready to give and offer your service. Meeting a man while volunteering will show you have something in common and says a lot about this character. Of course, if his volunteering is court mandated, you may have to re-think this strategy.

8 Playing Sports

Do you like to play softball or basketball? Check your local community center for drop in games. The sports field is another one of the greatest places to meet men, but only if you are truly interested in sports. There is a good chance if he likes to play, he also likes to watch. If you don’t want to spend your free time watching sports all year long than don’t look for a man on a field.
