^ It's going to be mad awkward hosting parties for the OP if he lives with his parents.

Step 1, start dance lessons.
Step 2, get own place.
Step 3, host.

The first step is most important.

I assume in between steps 1 and 2 he becomes a famous dancer and gets stinking rich?

No, there's usually such a shortage of guys who can dance, if he becomes even moderately good and doesn't look like Quasimodo, women will be falling all over each other to dance with him.

Even if he doesn't become a decent dancer and just goes to class, he'll meet a lot of young women because the usual class format involves rotating partners every several minutes. I recommend that he find a college dance club (they should still be active over the summer). That way, he's guaranteed to be dancing mainly with college-age women instead of his grandma. During a one-hour class, he should be able to dance with every woman in the room at least once.

You should try it Neo (Unless you look like Quasimodo. You wouldn't want to scare anyone smile.gif).

Like so many other things in life, there are rarely set, direct paths to goals. As others have said, find an activity that you enjoy that puts you in a position to meet other people. Shared and common interests / goals are powerful social forces that brings people together. It's no guarantee of anything of course, but at the very least you'll enjoy yourself.

Thinman, I have many talents but dancing is not one of them. What do you specialize in? Salsa?

don't be so modest. You were shaking your booty pretty well to "I'm sexy and I know it"

No, I don't like the salsa scene much. I used to do ballroom and West Coast Swing, but have focused exclusively on West Coast Swing lately. I like it because it provides lots of opportunity to ad lib and can be danced to any music in 4/4 time, including contemporary, blues, soul, R&B, etc. I've also started DJing and that's a lot of fun too.
Dancing has changed the way I listen to music.

This is a good idea, except I realized that the type of girls who attend ballroom dancing classes in the summer can be kind of weird.

Started hitting up the local basketball court a lot more. Fun thing about basketball is that there are all sorts of different people there. Haven't really met a crowd I liked. The thing is where I went to high school is a lot different from where I live right now in terms of people around my age. I can't host anything because I've kindly been given a guestroom from a family friend to live in over the summer, and it would just be a dumb idea to host any sort of party.

Trying to meet a couple cool guys to hang out with and also some cute girls. Also a personal challenge to be a type of person who can make friends everywhere he goes.

Dance lessons might be interesting. I wish I could join some sort of Christian Club, minus the Christian. Those seem to have a lot of people my age.

I'm ok with clubs and I go to them when I'm anywhere else in the world, but the idea of clubbing with no alcohol just seems kind of juvenile to me, so I'm staying away from clubs here until I'm 21.

Don't give up; try a different class. Try salsa, tango, swing, or ballroom.
