While it may be the best time in the history of the world for hook-up culture, meeting a girl you can take home to mom has never been harder. Finding someone who truly shares your desire to make a deeper, more meaningful connection can be like finding a Skittle in a barrel of M&Ms. But don’t get us wrong — it’s still possible. The trick is to know where to look.
Love, at first sight, can happen, but let’s be real: it’s better to hedge your bets. Build a foundation with someone by getting to know them little by little over time and establishing a rapport before unleashing your inner Don Juan. Here are some great places to do just that so you can find love on the path you’re already traveling.
Corner Coffee Shop
You go there every day anyway, why not let your lifestyle guide you to the woman you've been searching for? We're sure there's a nice single lady in your neighborhood looking for a real connection. Unless your neighborhood sucks. Then you probably want to hang out at the coffee shop five neighborhoods down.
The Grocery Store
The domesticated man can meet quite the catch in the correct aisle of the supermarket. Just steer clear of the beer and feminine products aisles.
Studious, hardworking, intelligent, and into democratic socialism -- these are some of the makings of what could be the greatest love story of your life. Just make sure she's not a perv who's only using the library to watch porn (unless that's what you're into).
Some Sort Of Hobby Class/Night School
She's going places. Or at the very least, she has interests. Whether it's knitting, collecting stamps, flower arrangement, or German 101, you could meet the girl of your dreams while learning a new skill. Education is hot.
No one who owns a dog could possibly be a bad person, right?
At A Yoga Class
Meet like-minded, spiritually motivated people who take their health and well-being seriously. Plus, the sex will probably be fantastic.
Your Local Farmers Market
Nothing spells quaint, natural, down-home girl, like your local farmer's market. Not only will you meet a girl who likes to cook with fresh produce, she'll also be into community, locally sourced food, and dudes who hang around farmers markets.
Coed Sports League
She's competitive, athletic, driven, and can hold her own with the guys. Also, she knows the rules to rugby. What more could you ask for?
Give a little to get a little.
A Friend's BBQ
Don't overdo it on the hot dogs and ribs at Jeremy's next BBQ because you might just meet "the one." Not only will she be a responsible meat-eater, she's a social butterfly who your friends can vouch for. Not to mention, the smell of burgers on a warm summer's day is the ultimate aphrodisiac.
