Meeting a woman and starting a relationship is a lot like looking for a new job. You have to network, go to as many events as possible, deal with a few rejections and, finally, you land the perfect fit. Use these skills to cast a wide net in the best places to find the ideal woman for you.
Surf the Web
Going online is one of the most certain methods to meet a woman. In fact, one in five relationships begin online. Going online gives you the advantage of seeing a person before you date, searching for a woman with similar interests, and being in an environment that is low anxiety. Join a dating site to search for hundreds of women in your area. Send a message to one who appears interesting. If you do not click together, try again. Also consider enrolling in a meet-up or singles group in your area in which you participate in meetings or adventure trips in your area.
If you have considered going back to school or taking a refresher course, an adult education class can create an opportunity to meet single women. Ask a group of students if they would like to study with you or work on a class project. As you review notes, discuss your interests and see if you click with any of the women.
Hone a Hobby
Pursue activities that interest you and involve participating with others. Run a marathon, take a cooking or dance class, go to the gym, join a community sports league, take a photography lesson, join a book club, learn a new skill, or participate in another activity that you like to do. When you participate in activities of interest, you gain confidence and naturally attract people to you. Even if you don't meet someone who interests you romantically, you may forge new friendships with people who have an ideal single friend for you.
Spend a few hours a week pursuing a charitable activity you are passionate about. The good thing about volunteering is that you become a part of the community, so you will continuously have opportunities to connect with clients or other volunteers. Spend a few hours at a medical clinic, a veterinarian's office, a political party's campaign, or help to build a house with a charitable organization.
Your Friend's House
Your friends, close and casual, create a network of individuals with the potential to lead you to the right woman. Mention that you are looking for someone and you will be surprised how many suggestions your friends provide. Ask close friends to host a dinner party with several single female friends for a better chance for a connection. Ask your social media friends if they know anyone who seems like a good match for you. Attend your friends' parties.
Where the Women Are
Frequent locations where women are always present. Go to the supermarket, theater performances, art museums, a female musical artist's concert, city park or jazz club. Also, frequent typical men's businesses, such as the hardware or auto parts store. You may be able to help a woman in need that can lead to more.
