We go to bars, clubs, and single events to meet women. But, it’s time to break free from the mould and meet at these 21 surprising and awesome out of the box places. Not only will you find beautiful women in here, but you’ll also find it’s easier to keep the conversation interesting than just meeting her at a bar. Translation: more likely to get her number.
Also, we’re not going to leave you hanging. Knowing where to meet women is only the first step. That’s why we put together a list of opening lines for each 21 places that we listed. Best yet - it also includes a 7-day challenge so you can implement all of the lines you learn.
1. Amusement Parks
This is one of my all time favorite places to meet women. Go out to a local amusement park with a small group of your friends and approach any one of the near infinite groups of attractive women you see. No need to overthink it - just invite the group to join you on the nearby roller coaster. Remember, they’re there to have fun - and you can give it to them.
2. Farmer’s Market
Skip the grocery store and go right to the farmer's market for a more down to earth crowd. Supporting your local goods sends her a positive message so you’ve already got a brownie point before you approach her. Not to mention a chance to grab some homemade cinnamon donuts before you take her out for an instant date.
3. Trade Show
If you’ve worked for big corporate America, you’ve most likely gone to a trade show. It’s usually out of town and exactly where you don’t want to be. Use that to your advantage! Remember, that blonde you see by the “put your business name on our pen” booth is just as bored as you are, and wants to grab drinks after sunset.
4. Night Market
The hustle of a night market - especially the kinds with cheap food - is a great spot not just to meet groups of girls, but to sit down with them for a bite and a beer. Underrated, but effective - and remember not to be intimidated of girls with guys. Introduce your groups together. Of course, this is contingent on whether you have a night market in your hometown to begin with. If not… road trip time.
We’ve done a blog post on How to Meet Girls at the Gym before. Meeting women at the gym is totally viable, given that you do it right way. Don’t be too pushy, and approach with caution, and you’ll be pounding more than reps.
Trade shows: but actually fun. Outside of the big ones (Blizz-Con, YouTube, etc) there’s a very good chance your local city or town has multiple conventions or fares every year. Find out what they are. My hometown has an Italian fest that I go to every year, and meet plenty of local college girls. Yes - Ren fairs count here.
7. Your apartment Building or Dorm
Think this is far fetched? Think again. There’s a saying to not “shit where you eat” but done right, having someone in your own building you can see on a regular basis is super convenient and enjoyable for both of you. As for HOW to make this happen, our guide will go over the details.
8. Book Store
Yes, they still exist (for now) and yes, they are a great place to meet women. Not only are you likely to find learned women, but you’ll also find women who share the same interests you have. Just go to the aisle you’d normally browse in.
9. Art galleries (Opening)
We’re not talking about art museums (where art goes to die) or stale galleries - we’re talking about opening night at your local apartment gallery. The women here are culturally rich and free thinkers. If you’re into bohemians, you’re in the right place. Plus, wine is usually on the house. While you’ll find most of these events in the big cities, even small towns have art exhibitions.
10. Yoga Class
If you want pizza, you go to a pizza shop. If you want beautiful women wearing yoga pants, you go to a yoga class. This is a long term strategy though - there’s nothing more awkward than a guy who joins a class just to hit on women. Most likely you’re not getting enough exercise and could actually use a yoga class - and if you meet a few women along the way, who’s complaining?
11. Couch Surfing
Couchsurfing is a great community of people genuinely looking to help each other. Coming in with the explicit purpose to get laid is dangerous - because one negative review will kill your profile. Instead, like the yoga class, join it because you want to be a part of the community. If something more comes of it - even better!
12. Dog Park
I like to think of the dog park as the great equalizer. We’re at the mercy of our dogs. No matter who we are, we bend over to pick up their shit. There’s never a reason to be intimidated with approaching women, here of all places. And most likely, she’d love to meet you and your pooch.
Put your jogging shoes on and get some exercise at your local park. One of my favorite moves is just jogging along side of a woman you’re attracted to and sharing a conversation as you get your daily work out in. Or if you’re near a corporate center (or in a city), grab your bite to go and sit down on a bench with her and enjoy a meal together.
14. Movie Theater
It’s unlikely that you’re going to find a girl going to see the movies alone, so it’s best if you grab your mates and go with a small group. On any night with a premier, you’ll easily meet a group by the concise or on line to buy a ticket. Kick up conversations and find the girl you most connect with to exchange information - and grab a drink all together after the movie is over.
Most likely you’ve gone to an orchard in autumn during your primary school days. If you live by one you probably already realize that girls and their friends love to go as a group to get fresh cider and donuts. Meet them there and spend the day on an instant date.
16. Grocery Store
Everyone needs groceries, and depending on what what store you go to, you already know what kind of girl you’re going to meet. Even better, it’s likely that she’ll be alone (rather than with a group of friends) so it will feel more natural to approach her.
17. Victoria’s Secret
Yes, you heard that right. Seems risky right? Couldn’t be further from the reality. For this one, we’ll give you all the details in that list of opening lines we made for every spot we covered in this blog post. For now, just know this is a great place to meet women and not just because they tend to be attractive.
One of my good buddies was going through depression for a few years that kept him from going out and doing… well, anything. It wasn’t until that he committed going out once a week with meetup.com that he started to break free from it. Best yet, after a few months he ended up meeting his present girlfriend while on a hiking meetup. Great way not just to meet women, but to build up your circle of friends that share the same interests.
19. Showing of "The Room"
Talk about off the wall, this is it. Have you not seen The Room yet? If so, do it now. Widely considered the world’s worst movie. Most major US cities screen The Room a few times a year. You’re guaranteed to have a blast, and meet women who appreciate dark humor (and your taste in it.)
We’re not talking about dirty massage spas - we’re talking about the real deal. Think Wi Spa in LA or the Russian Turkish Bath house in New York. These unisex bathhouses put everyone in a fully relaxed mood, and offers plenty of lazy time for good conversation. Your best bet is to talk about the cafe section in between bathing sessions. The Russian Turkish Bath even has imported Russian beer and a roof deck. Just tell her the Russian #9 is on you.
For all you single DILF's out there, this one is for you. Nothing says "awesome dad" like a guy who takes his kid to the park. There are almost 10,000,000 single mothers in the United States alone. At the swing set, take a peek at her hand. If there's no ring -- it's game on.
