10 Best Ways To Meet People

Tuesday, 26 March 2013 0 comments


Are you sick and tired of being dateless? Do you sit at home week after week while your friends are out on dates? Are you surrounded by people in relationships? It’s time to get out there and meet someone for yourself! Here are 10 tips on how to meet people:


A 1. Get out. You will never meet anyone if you sit at home alone. No one is coming to knock on your door to meet you. You need to get out of the house and surround yourself with other human beings if you ever hope to meet someone.

A2. Practice makes perfect. If you’re shy it can seem daunting to start chatting up strangers and trying to meet someone, let alone asking someone out. Start practicing your social skills by talking to everyone. The cashier while you’re shopping, the bus driver, the lady in line behind you at the store, etc. If you make a habit of engaging strangers in conversation in low-pressure situations, you’ll get used to doing it and be a pro at it by the time you want to talk to someone that you want to meet.

A3. Reach out. Let your friends and acquaintances know that you’re ready to meet someone. Ask them to set you up. They know you well so they can pair you with other people that they think you’ll be a good match with.

A4. Look right in front of you. You don’t always have to go far to meet someone. In fact, the right person might be right under your nose. Maybe you already know them – your neighbor, someone in your group project at school, a co-worker, etc. You may just not have been looking closely enough before.

A5. Think outside the box. You don’t just have to date people you meet through friends, at the bar, or the usual places. Look for potential people wherever you go: watching your niece’s little league game, at the grocery store, etc.

A6. Look online. You might have a hard time meeting people out and about, but don’t hesitate to look online. We do everything online now, so why not use it as a way to meet someone? Try online forums or dating sites, or suggest a meet up with someone you’re always tweeting with.

A7. Go places alone. It’s intimidating for someone to come up and talk to you if you’re surrounded by your friends all the time. Make yourself easily approachable by going places alone.

A8. Be interesting. Read the paper, watch the news, and keep up on current events. You’ll have lots to talk about when you do meet someone and want to strike up a conversation. People will be drawn to you if you’re an interesting and well-rounded person.

A9. Linger. When you go to Starbucks for a latte, don’t order it and dash out right away. Grab a seat and sit down. Or wait around for your takeout instead of pre-ordering and having it ready when you arrive. By lingering places you’ll create opportunities for talking to people. You won’t talk to anyone if you’re constantly rushing in and out.

A10. Be positive. Don’t wallow in the fact that you’re single and can’t meet anyone. Focus on your positives and tell yourself that it’s only a matter of time before you meet someone who appreciates how awesome you are. People are drawn to positive people and are put off by people who have negative attitudes. So make yourself into a magnet and rock a positive attitude.
