Moving along with our Boys Theme, I thought it would be fun to put together a list of places to meet them--besides the obvious places (work, school, nightclubs/bars and dances). So I did some checking around with “experts”, and here’s what I came up with, in no particular order:
Your high school track, during off-hours
Guys of all ages run their local high school track in the evenings and on weekends to keep in shape.
Whether on the lift, the slope or in the lodge, ski resorts are happening places. And in California, I can give you a tip that our resorts are often manned by cute Australian skiers who come over here to work during what is their summer months.
It’s a great place to meet guys who are on vacation and checking their e-mails.
Water Sports Rental Shops
Ever notice how hot the guys are who man the jet skis, canoe and kayak rental shops? Some of the renters are something to look at, too.
With a warning here from an 18 year-old male gamer that these stores are magnets for outta shape guys with no social skills, I am still recommending a walk by your local gaming store to see what’s happening. Because every rule is meant to be broken.
Stopping by a Starbucks or your local equivalent isn’t exactly a novel idea, but for a spin, try it late at night for different clientele.
A Family or Neighborhood Party
Don’t overlook the obvious, that sometimes a totally boring and predictable family or neighborhood party can surprise you. Remember Mark Darcy from the Bridget Jones movies (shown here in one of his “Christmas jumpers” from one of those family parties).
People from all walks of life come together for charity events. Consider volunteering or attending a local walk-a-thon, trash pick-up, food drive, YMCA pancake breakfast, etc.
Okay, I’m a married lady, and my site is to meet readers and authors and to generally procrastinate. But single girls tell me other stories!
Planes, trains, buses, subways, taxis. Keep your eyes open--you never know.
(Haha, okay, the picture's a bit dated, but anyone who has seen A HARD DAY'S NIGHT know these four cute guys thrilled girls at every train stop.)
Anyway, just some ideas. And if you’ve met a cute guy in an unusual place, please share with us!
