The 18 Top Places To Meet Girls
You’d think that the top places to meet girls would be an easy list to come up with. But surprise, when you do, it’s not as easy as you thought. Most guys, when they want to meet women, probably think it’s time to go to the bars and nightclubs. Well, you can meet women at these places but there are actually a LOT more places to go to meet girls that you probably haven’t even thought about.
Where The Girls Are: The Top 18 Places
Coed Sports – When you engage in “team play” you are in situations where you build bonds and “click” with others. When you are playing on the same team with women you share a common goal (to kick the other team’s butt) and this brings you closer together.
Theater Classes – Improv or theater classes can help lessen stress and can provide you with ample opportunity to meet women therefore they are one of the top places to meet girls.
Volunteer Groups – Women love selflessness. A recent study showed that women prefer men who showed an altruistic side to men who were more selfish. You can go online and find lots of groups in your area here: Volunteerism.meetup.com
Farmer’s markets – Sure you can meet women at your local super market but you can also meet more interesting women at your local farmer’s market. Plus there is such a large variety of fruits, vegetables, cheeses, meats and more that you’ll have tons of conversation ammunition. You can find a farmer’s market near you by visiting Localharvest.org
Yelp.com – This is a strange but awesome site that let’s you find cool places near you like coffee shops, laundry mats, bookstores, music shops, etc. The great thing about it is that it also functions like a social network so you can post reviews, send private messages, etc.
Music stores – Music stores are actually better than say, bookstores or coffee shops, because research has shown that women are more attracted to men that share their musical tastes. You can find a record store near you by visiting Recordstoreday.com
Shopping – Places like your local shopping mall, Apple Stores, and especially Ikea are fertile grounds for meeting women. Plus, these places make it easy to approach girls. There is so much to see and so much to talk about that you can easily begin talking to women you are interested in.
Museums – In a recent study women said they preferred education and intelligence over looks and money. What better way to flex your “brain muscles” than visiting your nearest museum. Jump online and find out when your local museum is having tours, music, special exhibits, etc.
Music festivals – Concerts are great but music festivals are even better. They usually attract a much larger and more diverse crowd than a concert does and they usually last all day (or several days) which gives you ample time to meet more women.
Flea markets – This may not sound like a great place to meet quality women but you’d be surprised. Go on a Saturday morning and see for yourself. Plus bring some cash because you’ll probably find some cool, cheap stuff.
Coffee shops – Your local Starbucks is not only good for a latte it’s also one of the top places to meet girls. You can meet a wide variety of women at coffee shops. Bring your laptop or a good book and stay awhile. Visit at different hours to see the different variety of people that frequent coffee shops.
Dance classes – These are great places to get some good exercise and get paired up with single women. Can you think of a better way to get “close” to single women than dancing with them?
Wine tasting – No, these types of events are NOT only attended by uppity women. You can find a wide variety of women at these events. Plus, conversation flows easily so you don’t have to worry as much about “breaking the ice.”
Get a dog – And take him or her to the dog park. Get a big, cute puppy and women will come to you!
Meetup.com – I mentioned Meetup.com earlier with the volunteerism idea but you can also use Meetup.com to find events of all sorts that you can attend. There are LOTS of different types of events that deal with everything from food to drinking.
The art district - Look in your local “events newspaper” for when your city has it’s art walk. Usually the first Saturday of the month during warmer weather most cities will have art walks in which all the art galleries open their doors free to the public. These events are some of the top places to meet girls.
Punch it out – Have you thought about martial arts? Maybe yoga or kickboxing? Visit your local gym or martial arts studio and see what type of women attend. Usually at a yoga, pilates, or kickboxing class you’ll find LOTS of attractive, single women that you can meet.
Online – Online is simply one of the top places to meet girls. Period. I’m sure you’ve heard of Myspace and Facebook (these are great places to meet women by yourself–you don’t need a wingman and you won’t look silly if you “arrive” alone). But have you heard of PlentyOfFish? PlentyOfFish is a FREE dating site that lets you set up a profile and meet single women in your area looking for men. Using these social networking sites (yes, even Twitter) is, in my opinion, the BEST way to meet single women. You have the opportunity to meet thousands and thousands of women without leaving your home. What’s better than that.
