i try meet singles at the beach before a few years ago i found a ad on the newspaper saying there was going to be a singles day picnic at a beach it sounded fun and all but it did not give the ages of the singles day at the beach. So once i got there it was mostly older ppl no one in my age group was there or younger i was like wow wast of time
so if going to try meet ppl at a singles place make sheer its for your age group

i'm all for the clubs, bars, house parties & whatever else

in regards to finding a potential girlfriend, i'd prefer an encounter somewhere more sophisticated (i.e. school, library, festival etc.)

If I'm single, I stay away from specific single events....there is something slightly unnatural about them. It's difficult to get into immersion, have lots of fun and attract other high quality people.

All in all, it really depends on what you are after and whether you are male or female. Joining a social club/class of your hobby is a good start. Meeting someone from easiest to hardest: Through friends/social circle -> Anime convention/club -> club/class of your hobby -> place where you frequent and know everyone -> club/bar

- If you're just looking for some casual fun, go to a club or concert that plays your kind of music.
- For people with spiritual and health awareness, yoga class. This is more advantageous for men because of the gender ratio.
- Partner dance class/club for people with more physical awareness. The distinction I found is that you generally stick to the same partner in a class, where you can switch multiple times in a club. Also better for men for the same reasons.
- Cooking classes...anything where there is partner work and the gender ratio is tipped in your favor.
- Church events if you're looking for someone sharing your religious beliefs.
- Book club if your passion is getting lost in books and looking for someone to share that with.
- Sculpting classes...anime convention/club w/e
**Ask to just check out the class in session before you sign up to make sure that these are the kinds of people you want to meet. Classes at different parts of town will have different kinds of people.

Anything that is social and that you can have a lot of fun in. When you're immersed in that enjoyment, others will naturally gravitate towards you, the pressure to meet someone is lifted and that is when it becomes effortless. Preferably it's something where you work with others, especially if you are shy. If you don't have such a hobby, try out something that seems interesting to you (maybe even something out of your character. Get out of your comfort zone to grow).

If you meet someone that is your type and they happen to be taken, make friends with them and their significant other if you can. Likes often attract, when you're hanging out with them, you are bound to be introduced to some of their friends who will be similar to them (more often than not).

A well positioned coffee/tea shop/juice bar is also great. For example, if there is a yoga class that takes place across the street everyday. Make it your regular place, make friends with the staff and regulars. If there is a guy or girl that you like, just go line up with them and have a chat. Tease them a little, tell the barista that she cut you in line and that you should be served first...or w/e to make it fun and interesting.

For extraverts with a degree of social intelligence, all of this is a byproduct of their natural way of living. However, introverts might need to brainstorm a little and try some things out before finding something that works for them. Whatever your situation, don't become too result oriented...instead seek to have as much fun as you can while involving others. It takes off the pressure, you stop being weird and rigid, and magic happens.

Ah, there are two types of single people in this world.

Ones that go fishing/hunting for a partner.
The other who goes with the flow and doesn't set up traps.

If you're the hunting type, any place where there's a huge crowd is a good place to pick up a person. But mind you these are the type of people that get screwed over in relationships, since they usually meet the wrong type of people and end up breaking up fast.

If I were you, I'd go with the second one. Stop hunting and let things happen. If you meet someone along the way, that's much better. There's nothing more fun then accidentally building up a relationship with a friend of a friend, or someone you met at school, or on the subway line/train.

In seriousness though I just feel weird going out clubbing when I have someone, and my boyfriend agrees. Mostly his friends disappear off with some girl...

OkCupid is a great way to meet friends and try out dates in a relaxed environment that's free and fun.

As for in person, i just hang out with friends at the library, mall, protests, and "pre-game" sleepovers and "post-game" restaurant and McKay's used books.

Just be yourself and go to places that interest you. Get the courage to ask someone something. "Oh you read manga? Which ones are you reading now?" "Hey, I see you like coming to Starbucks. Can I buy you a drink?" If you already have things in common, it's a good start. Just have confidence, be yourself, relax, and enjoy yourself and life.

Enjoy my hobbies at my private place. (home, library, cafe, car, I wish my house have a tall rooftop so I can sit there alone)
Being with myself is the best.
