Spring is finally here. People are out and about again, so it’s a wonderful time to meet a man. Yet, most women fear meeting men this way because they’re not sure where the single men over 50 are hanging out.
I have a secret to share with you. Men are everywhere! But the reason it’s hard to meet them is because we have a tendency to go to the same places and see the same men over and over again.
Did you know that most of us usually stay within a 3-5 mile radius of where we live? Just think about the same restaurants you go to or the same movie theaters you frequent. We are creatures of habit!
To get out of this habit, you’ll want to get out there and explore some new places. So how do you find the best places to meet men? A creative way to do this is to write all of the letters in the alphabet from A – Z on a piece of paper. You’re going to have 26 lines. After each letter, I want you to write down a potential place, either in your area, or a place you want to visit that corresponds with that letter.
An easy example of the best places to meet men using this creative way is A for airport. Men fly around the world for business on a daily basis. There’s always some man you can speak with whether it’s at one of the bars or restaurants in the airport or at the gate while you’re waiting to board.
I’m going to give you a couple of letters that are a little harder to figure out. Q is one of the hardest. How about the Quick Mart, which is like a convenience store? Why is the Quick Mart one of the best places to meet men?
Well, this is the place you go both head to find something really quick or something you need at the last minute. Maybe it’s milk, a bottle of wine, or even butter for a recipe you decided to make. You’re standing together in line waiting to check out so it’s an easy place to start a conversation.
Now lets do the letter X. You could meet men in the Xerox place. For most of us the Xerox place is Kinko’s, but you can call it the Xerox place, because X is a pretty hard letter to fill in. A lot of businessmen rely on Kinko’s to take care of their printing needs. You can ask a man questions about the sign or books he’s picking up, and from there the conversation has the potential to take off.
When you’re filling out your alphabet list of best places to meet men, you’ll want to think about places where you might have a shared interest with men. You’re not going to find too many men at knitting classes, but you will find them in other places. For example, if you love hiking and climbing, find a venue for rock climbing in your city.
If you love reading, head to the library or watch for men reading books on buses, trains or even in a restaurant. You can always ask what they enjoy reading. If you love music, you can go to concerts and bars that feature music and ask a man what his favorite band is. You’re choosing places that give you common ground so its easier to get the conversation flowing.
Talking to men everywhere you go creates a new habit in your life that makes you proactive. And, it can lead you to meeting great guys and possibly finding the relationship you want. So you have a choice. You could sit around and complain that there are no good men out there, or you can get out and start meeting new men in all the new places you’ve found by creating your A to Z list. And who knows, by the end of the summer, you could have a new man in your life!
