Where the hell to meet girls? - Page 2

post #16 of 91
You can meet people everywhere. I try to look at it as just that-- meeting people. I have been a relationship for 2 years almost, but that has always what has worked for me. Expand your social network and you will meet people through it.

Yes, and I have tried, but I am hampered by a medical condition and can't drink that much.

Parties sound great but my friends are not the party type and I don't know any parties I can go to.

Continuing education classes might be a good idea, but honestly I'm really busy at work and it would really cut down on my time. It is a good idea though, I'll consider trying it, but if I don't see some hot girl there it would suck.

I don't mind talking to girls out of the blue in public, I'd actually rather meet the girl face-to-face than over the Internet. Online dating may work for some people, but I've never tried it and it really doesn't sound like my thing. Maybe I should try this.

Expanding social network - yes I think this is a great idea and I am asking my female coworkers if they know anyone. At first one of them seemed enthused to introduce me to her friend but suddenly decided not to. Maybe she just wants me, but I don't like to shit where I eat.

Sports might be a good idea, I like tennis, and its a good coed sport. I'm not sure if there are any girls around my age though.

Massage parlor - I do not make that much money.

Middle school parking lots - I'm here to meet MILFs, right?

I wouldn't mind going to bars just for nookie, but I turn red really fast, like before one glass of wine, which screws my chances. I wish I could handle alcohol a lot better.

ESL classes - you know, I am Asian .....

I dunno man, being able to get blitzed off of one drink will save you a lot of money...

Anywhere and Everywhere,

I've dated alot of the girls from the gym, which is good, because we have a common interest, I can see her in spandex, etc. etc.

Starbucks is great, it is a complete pickup joint and social network in big cities.

I hit on the standard waitress today, and she was hot as hell. Never forget the old standbys.

I've dated cashiers at groceries, stores, friends, elevators, lobbies, on the street, at walgreens, at work,

Bars are okay, but I think the key first is to make one compliment and then establish common interest. Do what you like and you'll run into girls, but you've got to take action. Don't be a wussy and not hit on them. Get right to the point, then talk to them more on your date.

How unconventional you are in your pursuits is directly proportional to the reward. Also, alike attracts alike, if you ever find yourself wondering why you keep attracting bum-ass-broads, it’s because you’re a bum-ass-guy.

There is a place I keep revisiting to meet to women, it’s a bit out of the way but it has always yielded me great rewards. The carnival is not first place you think of when on the prowl but I’m going to tell you why it should be. And I’m not talking knock down the rigged milk bottles win a teddy bear place that’s only for pre-teens, I’m talking full on “there’s a guy who puts nails through his testicles in tent number four” side show traveling freak show carnival. At some point through the night if you keep your eyes open you will spot these beautiful creatures, priestesses of Isis, dressing the womb of Ixtab as the throne of Ishtar. The first time I spotted them I had actually lost my way to the “Modern Oddities” exhibit only to see them on the side the animals with four asses tent having some cigarettes, laughing, spitting, wearing their sequins outfits like some chain male of valor, it was like watching unicorns cavorting in the meadow – you almost never feel this human. It’s that last unadulterated bastion of womanhood, the carnie midget. Man, carnie midgets know some all out tricks too, like this one where she’s sitting on top and you spin her 360 degrees on your lap in one swoop. It’s crazy, ever have one of them jump off the other ones shoulder and land right on your lap? You have to go to the carnival and get you a carnie midget. No, not every man looks to marry a carnie midget but you haven’t truly lived until you let one those wonders run their short stubby fingers through your life.

Agreed, but easier said than done. A random girl in a (relatively) crowded place...how would you approach it?

Talking to ppl in public is good practice, have to be able to carry a decent conversation in order to draw their much needed attention ...Meeting people online is alright too, I've met some interesting people online, and its not necessarily that you are meeting the girls you want to meet online, but you are getting to meet THEIR friends as well when you go out w/ them and their friends...


I get red really easily too, I wish I didn't get so red easily too, but it shouldn't affect anything. They'll think you're drunk probably, but hey you'll have a conversation w/ them concerning asian glow. You also don't really need to drink that much at a bar.

match.com and similar sites is where it's at. I was skeptical for a long time and thought it beneath me, but i'll be damned if it is not a dating bonanza. I wish I had done it years ago. It's like on-line shopping. sure, you come across the occasional freak, but i could date a new lady every night if i felt like it and there are a lot of keepers. besides, the freaks keep you on your toes.

HERE, HERE... it's funny this is what immediately occured to me: Dude, you're 24. All you should be doing is getting drunk and banging chicks.

Post a pic and we will help you assemble yourself.

Your question is composed of two sub-questions: (1) What are good places to chat up women? and (2) What are places where women are looking to meet men?

With regard to the first, if you are not comfortable chatting up strangers at random places, look to events where you have a pre-existing connection with other attendees such as private parties and social events (happy hours, parties) thrown by organizations to which you belong. The pre-existing connection is a natural icebreaker and a "screening" mechanism -- i.e., a woman will think you can't be all that bad if you know the host, like art, volunteer at a soup kitchen, etc.

As to where women are looking to meet men, the aforementioned places are good choices, but the best in my experience are black-tie galas. The packs of women dressed to the nines are all single and looking. They certainly didn't pay $50 (or whatever the event cost) to hang out with their girlfriends, and if they had boyfriends, said boyfriends would be stuck to their hip dressed in a monkey suit. Plus, by being at the event, you signal that you probably have a regular job and are willing to get dressed up to go out -- two big pluses for women.

I don't have any opinion on classes, as I haven't tried them. My guess is that they would be hit or miss. In my experience, online dating is as well.

The absolute worst place to meet women is at a bar/club on Friday or Saturday night. You have to scream to be heard and women have their guard up because they are expecting approaches from cheesy guys with bad lines and too much hair gel. (Bars in general aren't all bad, as women tend to be more relaxed at happy hour and it is possible to carry on a decent conversation.) Coming in a close second are events explicitly marketed as "singles" events. Women are a lot more self-conscious about being single than men are, and won't go to these events. Well, the hotties won't at least. The trick is to find singles organizations/events that don't call themselves that. I belong to several young professionals groups that ostensibly promote the arts, but everyone knows the real reason for their existence.

1) It was a joke 2) I have found that bars are a terrible place to meet women. They are usually there with a group of friends, which makes it hard to leave with them at the end of the night (usually one of them tries to cockblock). They are quite often with guys as well, which makes it even harder, as some of them may have a vested interest in the girl you are trying to talk to. Also, bars tend to be really loud, crowded, and generally a mess - which adds to the trouble. I have had my best luck at parties - not huge random ones, but 30-50 friends and friends-of-friends.

Oh, man, I would so do that, but being in a relatively rural area the only balck tie even within 35 miles is a once yearly $750/plate arts benefit. High price to pay, but such a good idea.

Who moves to find a wife?

You could always crash a wedding....

A

Yoga class. Pick the location and time of day to tune the age group. You'll get a great workout and you'll be the only guy in a sea of spandex-clad hotties who care about staying in shape.
