According to the newspaper, they spend a great deal of time underneath 11th grade boys.

Seriously though... If you don't have a dog - go adopt a puppy from a shelter... Women (and a lot of men) turn to mush over puppies & cannot resist the urge to say something. There is sumthin seriously wrong with a person that doesn't love a puppy (weeds out the bad seeds right there)!

Go to the dog park, on a walk to your local Starbuck's or anywhere you can sit outside (cutiefy your company and they will come). Dog park is great anytime on the weekends or after 5pm on weekdays.

The added bonuses: instant good karma for rescuing a puppy, your kids will be stoked, you will get to come home to someone that is beyond thrilled to see you every single time you walk in the door and will gladly kiss you anytime you want. That right there is good medicine for the soul.

P.S... as a single mom I've never been comfortable with men flirting with me (or vice-versa) when I'm with my son even if their kids are around (park, playground, etc.). It kinda creeps me out.

DO NOT adopt a living breathing creature with needs, often beyond basic "puppy" needs for such a superficial reason.

actions like that are why animals end up in the shelter in the first place.

wow... Seriously? Jeebuz...

I give them way more credit than to assume (or even suggest) they'd be adopting a homeless pet for the sole purpose of "picking-up" members of the opposite sex... Singles are looking for love and companionship and so are homeless pets... win/win.

Not looking to play any games here but I am genuinely curious on what you actually like to hear versus what the Rules of Seduction teaches us guys to do and say.

I need a good wing-woman to go out with to help me with this stuff!!!!
I can't think of anything other than the places I go (dog park, starbucks, grocery store) even with or without my son. I think a lot of the "hot-spots" depend on your geographic opportunities. Mine are extremely limited in married suburbiaville... ugh...

Perhaps a local driving range or batting cages (who doesn't like to whack a few balls every once in awhile? HA!). Recently I've thought about paying a visit to one of the indoor gun ranges.

Granted all 3 of those venues will probably present a high male to female ratio BUT my primary reason for going would be for me to have some fun; if there happens to be a cute, single guy there then I'd consider that a bonus.

Have you looked into any Meet Up groups in your area for single parents, networking, over 25+ crowd, over 30+ crowd, or any other group activity that matches your interests?

Sorry I can't be of much help on this... my favorite activities don't exactly fall in line with stereotypical female interests.

So, did you get a connection out the experience?

Lighten up, Francis. If the pet was adopted, it CAME from a shelter, which is a good thing.

I found my gf of almost two years through a mailing list of mutual friends for sunday squash sessions. Needless to say I thrashed her @ss!

Anyway my point is to really just put yourself out there with all your hobbies that you like or want to try. It also makes initial conversations that much easier and it's good to share common hobbies you can do together. Just put yourself out there, that's pretty much the first and most bold step I can think of.

Yes because all women are pedophiles. Fail.

No. Hadn't even crossed my mind until I was in the middle of it.

Not sure if it was "that" kind of attention - but it was definitely attention. And unlike so many other places, the numbers were actually in my favor.

I'm married but I have a couple of gorgeous, single girlfriends. They have very active lives that revolve around hobbies, exercise, and charity/volunteer work.

Here are some things they are involved with (not together, I've just combined their interests): Going to a shooting range, skiing/snow-boarding, tennis group, camping trips with children with cancer, rock concerts, the gym - they don't like "meat market" gyms but one friend is part of a small local place and because everyone knew everyone she felt more comfortable with the (albeit short-lived) relationship she discovered there.

The dog park, I agree ...if you were serious about taking care of a dog, bringing it into your life, and yes, it is a great way to meet others.

I think the key is to embrace your interests and keep yourself open.

So, in other words, sitting alone at home browsing the internet is not going to help me find the love of my life? Darn.....

I can tell the spring/summer season is upon us. Seems my radar has increased exponentially!!! lol

Funny, though, my focus has changed a bit and I think it is healthy. Right after the divorce I was always looking for someone to replace what I had lost. I wanted an instant relationship because that is what my ex already had by the time she wanted the divorce. Now, I'm looking for friends. More people to just hang out, be social with, and enjoy life. If something comes of it then wonderful. I use to always love having opposite sex friends. Guys are always in competition mode about everything it seems.

Just wanted to let you guys know that i looked into dance lessons today. I'm going to do it. Starting off with the West Coast Swing next month. Already signed up for it. I have a feeling most of the ladies will be upper 40's or older but I really don't care. I'm not doing this to pick up women but instead to learn a new skill and get out of my comfort zone a bit. Thanks TAM....You guys ROCK!

I have heard several success stories for all ages for match.com - just sayin' you get to sit at home online

Ohh maybe a Courgar just for fu
LOL

Seriously I am in my early 40s and finding men has been a concern. I have had people tell me - book stores, shared interests like political party get togethers, grocery stores, friends, and I am still looking, it will be hard for me to get out w/o the kids so I need to use my time wisely - lol. Meetup.com in some areas may be possible.

Good luck!
