10 Best Places To Meet Your Potential Spouse!

There is an assumption that all the good women and men are either taken or gay. But the truth of the matter is, there is a soulmate for most of us out there, only if we search in the right places. The key to maximizing your chances of meeting someone special wherever you find yourself is to keep your eyes open and your head up (smartphones down!). Be prepared to make eye contact, smile and say hello! Here are 10 places to do just that.

1. Public Transport.

Public transport can be a pain, from the discomfort, delays and nosey passengers, but you can turn your lemon into lemonade. Next time you in a public transport and you see a hot person reading a book you love, consider striking up a conversation with them about it. Sure, it’s brave, ย but it’s also a thrill.

2. Volunteer Your Time.

Volunteering is awesome in more ways than one. For starters, youโ€™re giving back, and secondly, youโ€™re putting yourself in a group of like-minded individuals who, like you, are obviously saints. Consider volunteering for a cause you care about, and see who you meet. At the very least, you’ll make friends with more potentially cute buddies.

3. Take A Class.

Even if you havenโ€™t been in school in years, you can always learn something new. Sign up for cooking class, a pottery class, or finally learn how to swim. Remember how it was so easy to meet people when you were in school? You can do that again.

4. Do More Things Solo.

Two big things happen when youโ€™re alone: Youโ€™ll find that youโ€™re more likely to talk to people and people are more likely to talk to you. When youโ€™re with your friends it can be intimidating for someone to come up to you, but when you roll solo itโ€™s easier for someone who might want to get to know you to make their move.

5. At Your Married Friendsโ€™ Homes.

Your friends probably haveย a handful of amazing single friends looking to meet a great single. It might take a bit of gumption, but put aside your pride and mention to your friends ย that youโ€™re single and looking; you might be surprised how eager they are to do some freelance matchmaking on your behalf.

6. Community And School Organizations.

If youโ€™re a parent, you could meet women (yes, some of them will be single) through the school PTA, while chaperoning field trips, by volunteering with your kidsโ€™ sports teams, or participating in other after-school programs. Otherwise, consider volunteering with a community-based organization, such as your neighborhood association or a local environmental group.

7. Coffee Shops.

Find a busy coffeeย shop that you feel comfortable in, and take up a space near the main door. Avoid bringing anything to distract yourself with if you can manage it, although this may be more difficult for some than for others. Then, make a point of ‘greeting’ each person who comes in the door, whether with a smile, comment or friendly hello.

8. Be Social.

Separate from the obvious, there are several social events you can attend to increase your chances of meeting someone new. Try planning a weekly movie night through your friends and see who shows up every week, making it clear that new people are welcome to join at any time.

9. Capitalize On Your Hobbies.

For those truly passionate about a particular hobby (i.e. writing, archeology, model trains, or motorcycles), look for a community group that services other people with similar interests. Your geographic location will determine whether or not there are readily accessible groups already ready and waiting for your membership.

10. Gyms

Gyms are a classic pick-up spot, but the proliferation of smartphones keeps many people more focused on their screens during their workouts than anything else. Break the cycle! You can still make eye contact and smile while youโ€™re listening to your favorite song.
