A lot of men go to bars and clubs to be able to pick up women. This is not a problem if you are indeed looking for just a hook up, but if you are looking for women who are girlfriend or spouse material, then get the hell out of those noisy clubs and steer yourself into other directions. Remember that people in the club present only their superficial selves and not their real personalities, which are hard to decipher in the midst of ditsy clothing, bling, and bass-pounding music. I will tell you some of the best places where you can meet real women who can be your potential partner.
Still the best way to meet women, as far as I’m concerned. The next time that a friend asks you to go to a baptismal or wedding, do not make an excuse just to flake out. Take the chance and show up in your best clothing. I know many people who met their partners or spouses through a common friend’s wedding. It can happen to you too, so don’t knock it unless you’ve tried it. A great benefit of meeting someone through friends is you can find out what that person is really like, so they can either vouch for her personality or tell you that she’s trouble and that you should look for someone else.
This is related to the item above. Friends often invite friends to their house parties, where you can meet a lot of people without having to deal with the superficialities in clubs. Here you get to see the women in their more relaxed state, because house parties are more chill than the club scene. Here you can actually engage in sensible conversation. If you can swing it, why not organize a house party yourself? This way, everyone will get a chance to meet you, including that girl who can be girlfriend potential.
If you don’t have a car, it’s not the end of the world. Instead of bemoaning your car-less existence, why not look at the bright side? When you commute, you get to see lots of people. And believe it or not, there is a chance that you can encounter someone who is partner potential. Increase your chances by offering your seat to a lovely lady who is standing in front of you, or offering to help her with her heavy luggage. These chance meetings can turn into something wonderful if only you will take the risk.
