Can't meet you if you are home watching TV - unless "the tube" means something different over there!

Do you go to bars alone? Do you actually meet people while outside smoking?
I can think of two other things apart from television "the tube" may refer to. One of them being the underground.

I was always jealous of smokers that they always get automatic friends anywhere they go.

This young woman was probably mid to late 20's and dressed in a very sexy but tasteful outfit, no ring on her finger. Our kids were having a great time together and we chatted a bit she seemed polite at which point I got so confused if she was showing interest in me or if it should have just been that obvious to everyone I was not in her league - I like to think there is nobody out of my league its only a matter of me stepping up and saying something but I guess my fear of rejection has always held me back from ever being able to escalate the interaction -I found myself silently analyzing my moves, awaiting her approval or permission to engage in speech.

It really was quite pathetic that I didn't even try to take a risk by somehow (I don't even have a clue what) showing I was interested big time, its like I automatically assume that all guys have an interest in someone that attractive and she must know it.

Anyways SD, when you find out where all the attractive women are make sure you know what to do or you will feel like a chicken like I do.
Ugh. Get a copy of No More Mr. Nice Guy - yesterday.

Also a minivan driver (don't need the space, but it's paid for). On the bright side, it's a really nice model, made my own mods on top of that, and never had any complaints.

Seriously, the best advice is just to do what you do and keep your eyes open along the way (the McDonalds example is a great one here). The quality will come out and attract the right people.

I've experienced that a man taking care of a household or (especially) being a genuinely good parent will get looks from women in the right environment (which is important because being a parent can be a liability in the wrong one). I've gotten second glances taking my daughter shopping, at the local club store, shopping on my own (Babies R Us comes to mind), etc.

What is a "meat market" gym? I've only gone to smaller hardcore gyms, or one that people really are working out. The girls that are there are pretty serious about the weights and training. I guess, what defines a "meat market" gym?

I was just talking about this last night to a lady I was on a date with, thinking I should write a book about it for both girls and guys.

I have two hobbies as of late where I am sometimes the ONLY guy, and frequently the only SINGLE guy in a room filled with beautiful women of all ages and statuses.

The first is painting. These BYOB painting places are chick magnets. Girls go in with their friends so they are really at ease, they aren't on the defensive. And after a glass or two of wine talk frequently turns to men and here you are the only single guy in the room with all these ladies who are now thinking about sex....

If there's another guy there he's with his wife or girlfriend, so no competition. I've been enough times now that the teachers even help me out if there's a girl they can tell I like. And at the end of the day it's a lot of fun (coming from a dude who always sucked at drawing), so even if nothing materializes it's like cheap therapy.

The second hobby is dancing. Ballroom, Latin, swing, folk, whatever. I don't know why, but single guys haven't figured this out yet. There are a lot of girls that like to dance. There are not a lot of guys that like to dance. That means every time you show up to something involving dancing, you're a valued commodity, even if you suck a$$ at it. And just like in painting, there's no pressure or awkwardness if you show up alone. Most of the classes are geared towards singles, you get in a big line and you switch partners every 30 seconds so it's not weird if you don't have a date. (actually it would be more weird if you did).

The social aspect and environment should be enough of an advantage as it is, but if you needed any more motivation, women are crazy about guys who can dance. Everyone knows what the girls say about good dancers in bed, even if it's not true, the thought is in their mind.

So that's my spiel. I like the dog park idea if you have a dog, that's probably a good non-threatening place with a good ratio of men to women. Gyms and sporting events are a sausage fest, good luck there.

Not ready yet but i'd be lying if I said I haven't been thinking about it. I want to share this wonderful life with someone.
I don't know where the other single ladies hang out but I can usually be found at the park with my dogs,adoption events,any kind of shelter benefit activities,and i find myself at Target a lot

plus everyone is trying their hardest not to cut one

That is SO TRUE! I was at my nephew's wedding a couple of months ago and was explaining to a bunch of 23 year old guys that the best way to get a bridesmaid....or any girl really.....was to dance. Didn't matter if they liked it. Didn't matter if they sucked at it. Girls like guys that will dance.

Then I taught them all how to two-step so they could dance closer!

By the end of the reception....2 or 3 of "my boys" were headed out to continue the party with a bridesmaid each. I headed back to my hotel. My work there was done

Excellent idea about the byob art class! I never considered that! You could even say something like you're trying to "learn more about art" or some crap like that. Perfect!
