Top Ten places to Meet Single men

Want to know the top ten places to meet single men? As a Matchmaker, I am happy to give advice on how to meet single men on your own.  Of course there are the obvious ones: work, school. through friends, at a bar, the gym, parties and blind dates.  But  there are many other places that single men frequent. 

Here are 10 ideas for ways to meet a guy without downloading a dating app or going to a bar.

1. Carwashes

Educated and sucessful men typically drive nice cars and take good care  of them. You will find these kind of men at high end car washes at lunch hour during the week and in the mornings on the weekend. You can see what type of car the guy drives as well, double bonus!

2. Starbucks all day. 

Many single men use them as their office , weekday mornings are especially good time to go. This one is a no-brainer, but keeping your head up is key. Don’t be tempted by the free wi-fi to spend your entire visit on social media.

3. Specialty Retail Stores

Go to stores on the weekends that single men like to go to such as electronics (Best Buy), home improvement (Home Depot), mens clothing stores like Nordstrom and Jos. A Banks.

4. Driving Range

Golf courses are a big investment of time and money. Driving ranges, on the other hand, are much easier, cheaper and tend to be more social. Go afterwork in the early evening or on Saturday mornings.

5. Grocery stores

Strike up a conversation! Find out if those pretzels he’s buying are any good after work and on weekend mornings.

6. Co-working spaces

Want to meet an entrepreneur? Shared office spaces are filled with them, and they usually have networking and social events.

7. Dog Parks

Don’t underestimate the matchmaking powers of the dog park. Not only is it a great place for your pup to socialize, it’s also a great place for you to meet other pet owners. And if your dogs like each other, you’re halfway there! .

8.Trivia nights

Chances are you have a local bar that hosts a weekly or a monthly trivia night. Come with a group or join an existing team and engage in a little friendly competition. Don’t forget to flirt!

6. Farmers markets

Local residents milling about, sampling local breads and cheeses = perfect opportunity to be social in a casual setting.

10. Food and drink festivals
