Meeting women that you would actually want to date and, maybe eventually, bring home to meet mom and dad, isn’’t as hard as it sounds. There is, of course, the singles scene out in the bars and clubs all over town but I don’’t highly recommend that one. It’’s not that just bad girls go to bars; it’s that it is hard to tell the good ones from the bad one.

Given that sentiment, the bars and clubs can be a great place to practice meeting new women, and for several reasons. One is that you can literally approach any woman and if you get rejected, there are practically no negative ramifications on your normal life. Your ego might be a dinged if you let it be though, but you should know that getting rejected is a normal part of meeting women.

You meet women at work, too, but, there again, I don’’t recommend dating them. The problem with that is that, if things don’’t work out, you will still have to work together and the situation could be awkward to say the least. And then there’s the possibility that things don’t go well and your flirting is poorly received. Then you might have to have a chat with the boss. If the woman is really mad, you might lose your job. This is why I recommend practicing at bars and clubs, lol. It’s just safer that way.

Your friends know women that you haven’’t met yet – sisters, cousins, friends, etc. Ask them to introduce you to them. But, big brother, try avoiding blind dates with women your friends don’t know well. Those women hardly ever work out well and you can end up spending money on a very uncomfortable evening. If you’re gonna do the blind date thing, stick with women your friends know well.

The best places to meet women that you might actually want to date are at clubs and organizations that you belong to. You already have something in common with them and will have had the opportunity to see them interact with other people and that tells you a lot about a person. If you aren’’t already involved with any clubs or organizations then, for cripes sake, join some! Find ones that are all about something you are interested in. There are clubs and organizations that cover just about anything you can think of from astronomy to zoology and single women are involved in all of them. Meetup is awesome for meeting people with like interests, so try giving that a shot.

If you’re religious, church is an excellent place to meet women. If there aren’’t any single women in the church you go to now, visit other churches until you find one where there are single women. The church itself will provide you with an opportunity to get to know the woman before you ask her for a date. You’ll be a lot more comfortable and so will she.

Get involved in civic organizations. Women love men who are civic minded. They admire men who are willing to “give back”. There’s something about serving soup that melts their hearts, lol. And what about political campaigns? You will meet a lot of young women who are passionate about politics.

If all else fails, join a good online dating service. You will meet a lot of eligible women. You can read their profiles and see pictures of them. After you get chatting, ask her for a face-to-face meeting, be sure that you plan the meeting during daylight hours and in a public place. You’ll meet some crazies and when you do, you’ll want to jet out of there fast.
