The Best Places To Meet Guys

For those of you who didn’t get the memo, I am attempting to start dating again after a long sabbatical. The thing is – and I know this is not the case for everyone, but I hate online dating. It’s just not me, I have lots of friends who have met great guys, but it’s just not my scene. Since I’m not a bar scene girl and friends set-ups come and go, I have to get a little more creative.  Here are my tips for snagging a guy IRL. If you have any feel free to share in the comments!

1. Sports Leagues
When you join a league (trampoline dodgeball, kickball, softball, basketball…whatever), you meet a ton of new people and will probably end up grabbing food or drinks with them after your game.
2. Classes
Many of us are not in school any more however there are plenty of other classes you can take lessons in – cooking, wine tasting, improv, painting…etc

3. Coffee Shops
Grab a book or your computer, sit there for a few hours and I’ll bet someone will come up to you.

4. Gyms
This is just too easy. The guys are already sweaty and half-naked ladies! Whether it’s the gyms grunting and power lifting to ones in spin or yoga you’re sure to easily meet someone.

5. Grocery Store
Especially around the meat area… ask a guy if he knows how to pick the perfect cut of meat – it’s a conversation starter that can lead to more.

6. Golf or Hunting Store
Seriously do you know how many eligible bachelors you’ll find. Note you may have to talk about boring things like golf or hunting.
7. Birthday Parties
Friends party or kids party its an ideal place to meet a new guy. Everyone is happy at a birthday party, they know someone you know and you never know what could happen.

8. Sports Bar
Hit a sports bar the next time a game is on. Wear a tee with the logo of the team you're cheering for, and sit near a guy rooting for the same team. You’ll connect over your shared fandom.

9. Race
Have you ever tried a color run or obstacle course? It’s a great way to meet a ton of new people. Especially at obstacle course races guys will always help you out!
10. Sporting Events
You’re both there for the same reason…. The love of your team – great conversation starter.

Most Popular First Date Spots

Starbucks wins, when it comes to first dates. It seems like most of us prefer the relaxed environment of a coffee shop (where we can screen our dates quickly over coffee and jet on out of there within 30 minutes), as opposed to a dining establishment where we are forced to eat in front of a stranger. A recent study says guys are more willing to commit to a first meeting when its over dinner at a restaurant versus us girls who don’t want to eat our food like a little bird, get a to-go box and pig out at home (Rachel from Friends anyone?).

What’s your go-to first date place?

Review: The Longest Ride

As a chick flick fan – especially when they have a country twist (Sweet Home Alabama is my favorite), I knew that The Longest Ride was on my must see list as soon as it hit theaters.

  Let me tell you this movie does not disappoint at all. Besides the serious eye candy (Scott Eastwood – why isn’t he in Magic Mike?), the story line is adorable (per usual thanks to Nicholas Sparks) and the casting is phenomenal. It’s definitely a movie you don’t want to miss out on! I have already seen it twice.  Have you seen it? What did you think?
