A lot of single people think bars are the best place to meet someone. But the reality is, they're mostly filled with annoying drunk people.
So before the weekend hits and you BECOME one of those people, here are the top five places that are better than bars for meeting someone.
1. The Gym. The key is to talk to someone while they're in BETWEEN exercises. If you start hitting on them while they're running, or in the middle of a set, your chances go way down.
And if you're a guy, don't go up to a woman and comment on how toned one of her body parts is. It won't sound flattering, you'll just come off like a creeper.
2. Concerts. People at concerts are already in a friendly mood, and it's easy to start a conversation: All you have to do is talk about the band. It also helps that everyone's a little buzzed and relaxed. It's like a bar without the pressure to meet someone.
3. Volunteering. The fact you're volunteering in the first place shows you're passionate about something, which is pretty much universally attractive. And since THEY'RE passionate about the same thing, there's a chance you'll have some chemistry.
4. Any Kind of Team Event. As in, go join a kickball league or an Ultimate Frisbee team. It doesn't matter what it is, just as long as it involves a large group of people.
Obviously, things that don't involve as many people, or only involve friends . . . like a bowling team . . . aren't as good. (AskMen.com)
