Get Out and About with Someone

Spring is the dating and mating season right? 

Whether you are mated, dating or thinking about spicing up the calendar with hot dates and events, summer is right around the corner and here are two lists.

 10 where and how to meet ideas:

Online dating 
Volunteering (Habitat for Humanity)
Coaching (kids) sports teams
Playing Sports
Active groups like hikers or bicycle lovers
Bookstores/Game Shops/Groups(hobby,geek stuff)
Gym or Fitness
College courses
Non college classes: Dancing, Woodworking, Auto mechanics, Computers, Photography, Cooking, Art etc.
Dog Parks
Vacations and Singles Cruises
Coffee Shops

If you are single it can be hard to meet quality people in the modern day. Some of us have never been the bar fly type and others have simply tried and out grown it. 

Enter the coffee shop and book store but now we are all on our mobile devices connected all across the globe and oblivious to our seatmates and neighbors.

Enter the idea of things like online dating. I have always loved in theory the idea of online dating. 

Instead of falling for someone because you have decent chemistry and then trying to make things work when you clearly are not a match, select and deselect important options and save time.

Sadly there are some singles who will never give online dating a serious try. Some who are social adept feel it to be beneath them. 

There are questions swirling around about how online selections might be teaching people to focus too much on things they might otherwise over look in person. Balance is needed.

I have been talking to single women online. They seem to not understand balance. 

“I avoided this guy because of a line or a word in his profile. Weeks/Months later there we still are and I reconsidered. Met him, he is pretty cool.” 

I have heard a variation of that more than a few times now. 

I see an on line dating profile like a speed dating prerequisite. Once you isolate the stats then you have to give the person a chance. It is not the time to over analyze their post.

I also don’t believe in allowing one’s self to be CatFished. Meet them for real or the relationship probably is not.

Some places to go and things to do. How About We style.

Roller Skating
Ice Skating
Movie Watching
Cook out BBQ
MeetUp events: Bike, Hike, Kayak, Wine Taste
Sporting events
Arts/Theater/Fine Dining
Indoor Rock Climbing
Ice cream or frozen yogurt
Live music

Once you have a partner in crime you don’t want to get stuck in a rut or close yourself off from the rest of the world. Keep active and continue to try new things. 

Just do some of them together to deepen the bonds between you.
