Totally agree with this. We all enjoy meeting a person with a similar interest, and if you're looking for a friend or something even more, you only need one seed for a relationship to grow. Social activities that cater to your interests in a group setting are totally the way to go.

Fitness oriented? Gym (there are TONS of classes you can join, and you never know who may catch your eye...or vice versa).
Love manga? Check your library for book clubs - I know mine has several different manga/comic book clubs that meet every month.
Tabletop gamer? Look around town for a gaming store, they'll usually host weekly D&D runs or w/e

Point is, Sanitos is right - social group interaction with like-minded individuals is the way to go. I know that many people have difficulty in larger social settings, but think of it this way: everyone in your community college Japanese Cuisine cooking class is just as nervous as you on the first day. So laugh it off, make some friends, see what 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.



You can simplify it to; "There are two types of single people in this world, males and females".

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 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 is something where you work with others, especially if you are shy.

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.


wow great answer i agree with you on this



agreed..i want to do these...so tired to be single.... hai.....

Depends on the age. Between 16 and 18, there is one club near here where they all go to. But here in this village, you normally go out visiting some of your friends at home, together with a few bottles of beer. You only meet people you don't know yet when there is a bigger event.

I... Actually don't know. I usually hang out around town, go to the park when its nice and talk to anyone that comes to me. I spend most of my time in the library though, either reading books or listening to music on the computer.

I spend most of my time by myself, and don't really spend time with others unless I want to-- which is rare, since I'm a private person. Though to be honest I've always dreamed about meeting my partner in a cafe.

I hang out at my regular hangouts i.e the library. Lots of hungover students in there pretending to read when they are actually comatose on page 54. Good luck to me in finding a guy in there...most of them probably tried humping me the night before so will sensibly, not approach me again. Damn freshers I was one once, but I'm pretty sure I wasn't that annoying.

Well...what women consider 'hunting' and what men consider 'hunting' are two completely different things. What a girl considers obvious is still very subtle to a guy(and even other girls)...barely noticeable unless he's one of the ones that get it.

It's extremely rare for a girl to take the lead from start to finish...it's a rare mathematical anomaly when it happens. I think it's just not in their nature, men and women operate differently despite their similarities.
