Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to start thinking about getting back in the Dating Game.
1. Online Dating Sites
Let’s face it, society today is busy and driven by technology.
The majority of us have access to a computer and/or mobile phone. It’s no wonder that Online Dating seems to be the choice method for meeting singles.
Online Dating Sites are easy to use. Once you sign up, within minutes you can have access to hundreds of singles in your area. You have full control and can meet singles on your own terms. You can communicate with your matches any time, day or night so time really is on your side.
There are many online dating sites to choose from depending on what you’re looking for.

2. Hobbies & Interests
Another way to meet Singles is through your hobbies and interests. It creates the perfect setting for two people to come together and get to know each other while doing what they love to do.
The downsides are that you have slimmer pickings and the process of getting to the point of having a date can be slow unless you feel bold and brave and just come right out and ask.
You also run the risk that the person of interest might not be single. Unless you know for sure of their status you could be in for a surprise when you’re turned down for a date.
3. Bars & Clubs
It’s time to put on your dancing shoes, grab your friends and head out for a night on the town.
This is a slightly older method to picking someone up but its been a choice option for many generations. Get a group of singles together under one roof combined with some liquid courage and you have a recipe for…true love?
Well, maybe not true love but certainly a good time!
The downside to drinking and dating is that your judgement is clouded and the person you are hitting on or vice versa really is a stranger. You know nothing about them and in a loud bar it’s hardly a place to carry a meaningful conversation.
This option is all about chance. Some things to remember; don’t drink and drive, don’t go home with a stranger and always buy your own drink or at least make sure you are right there when someone buys a drink for you.
4. Friends & Family
Nothing says awkward like your mom trying to set you up with a “really nice boy”. Or your friend trying to set you up with this “down to earth girl”.
A lot of people claim to have met their match through a friends gathering or a family get together but is this really a good method to meeting someone?
If things don’t work out will it be awkward or drive a wedge in your relationship with your family member or friend after? Does this person really match with you, or are you going with the most comfortable option because you’ve met in a familiar environment?
5. In Public Places
Does that gorgeous guy over in the fresh produce section strike your fancy? Does that girl handing your coffee to you make your heart skip a beat?
When you are single and out and about the world can be your oyster. It’s amazing how many opportunities can arise once you leave your house.
Simple shopping tasks can lead to great conversations and the chance to exchange numbers with a potential match. Just be sure not to act like a creepy stalker and look for obvious signs that they are not single like a wedding band or items in their cart indicating they have a partner in crime already.
