Hey guys and dolls!
Let’s talk a little about the different ways we can meet people to begin building a relationship with or even start dating. Call me old fashion but I love the traditional forms of meeting other singles. However, going to a good happy hour (alone), accepting the classic friends/family hookup and even online dating could be all you need to meet your potential soulmate. Don’t get me wrong these options I’m providing may not be your cup of tea. But try to keep an open mind. You never know which one may work for you if you simply try something new.
Explore New Happy Hour Spots
Let’s face it, who can pass up a good happy hour? Not me! Step out of your comfort zone and go have a drink or two at a new happy hour spot. I have to admit, I have had some great conversations and networking opportunities with a variety of people at a new bar I’ve visited. Trust me you can’t go wrong with this one.
Go Out Alone
Chile, starting to go out alone was one of the best decisions I could have ever made. Not only does it give you a stress free feeling, it also gives others a chance to notice you’re alone and spark a conversation with you. Yes, it’s true even though you like goin out with friends, that can be the biggest most common cock blocking move you could ever make. Think about how intimidating it is for a man to walk up to a table full of women and only want to choose one. LOL! That’s a lot of pressure on a man. Not to mention, if the woman curves him, now he regrets even taking the chance.
Friends & Family
Secondly, let’s talk about how friends and family will get tired of you showing up to family holiday gatherings and your all by your lonesome. They tend to think you need some help because “it can’t be that hard to find a decent person” haha! They have no idea, smh. Nevertheless, they will get the bright idea to hook you up with the equally lonely coworker or associate of theirs. They will even go to the extent of having them request you on social media. And after they have thoroughly gone through and liked all of your pictures on your IG account down to your very first post (296 weeks ago). Now they like you, but you want them to just disappear into a crowd because clearly they are mentally challenged for doing such a thing. Lol!
Although online dating sites are not my cup of tea, I am fully aware that it has worked great for some. I personally have a friend that indulges in online dating and I can’t say it has been a complete disaster. I’ve even been with her when she’s met a few of the guys at a local bar and they were cool I guess (shrugs). Oh wait, except for that one time she met a man that was deaf. That was awkward. But lucky for the both of them she knows sign language so that turned out great!
So, let’s see what happens! Try at least one of these options (especially if it’s something you’d normally not do) and give yourself some experience with stepping outside of your box.
Until next time loves,
