Here’s one best ways I have found to meet other singles while enjoying what you would do anyway.
Create your own group to do something that you enjoy. Last summer we took up golf and were quickly hooked. What better way to get outdoors and enjoy summer sun and also get exercise. Golf courses are usually very attractive, with lots of trees, some bodies of water, and just very nice places to spend summer days.
My friend and I decided to set up our own singles league this year. The course that we played at didn’t have a heavy crowd on Friday nights and we were usually free then, so we booked course.
During few months before we began to play, my friend advertised in local papers and had others put up flyers at local businesses and factories. We asked everyone we knew who was single to join us and encouraged them to invite their other single friends.
We started off small and were pleased to find that we are attracting some really great people we might not have otherwise met.
Another way we attracted members was to go on Yahoo and Match.com and invite people we found interesting who stated golf as an interest.
The best part of this experience is that you are enjoying something you would do anyway. It’s a natural way to be with people and there’s absolutely no pressure to pair up. Golf is a great sport to get a sense of how people behave and react. Some seemed more competitive than others; some have a shorter fuse when their ball goes in woods or sand traps. Others are just having fun and show up with big smiles and a positive attitude. Perhaps we wouldn’t learn all this so quickly if we met at a dance or bar.
