Men are from Mars and women are from Venus. Or, how about we put a twist to this boring, old, true-to-the-t quote and change it to Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it!
While the former line is most widely used to highlight the differences between the two sexes, the latter brings them both to a leveled playground. The fact is that men and women complement each other and it is only when these two halves of the (human) world meet, that they can experience the complete joy of life. So, as you sit wondering how to meet a man, do not fret or feel embarrassed. There are many women who are riding on the same boat as you are. In fact, it's not just women who wonder how to meet men, so many men out there as well are trying to figure out how to meet girls.
Where to Meet Men
Men are everywhere. From schools and colleges, to our neighborhood and offices, we work with men. We meet them all the time. But if you are hunting for places, then it obviously means that you have missed all your chances that fate had thrown your way. Never mind, where there is a will, there are options as well.
Something that springs to your mind immediately must be bars and pubs. Yes, guys here are most open to meet new people, but one must also be careful about picking on the right kind of man here. Gyms and fitness centers are other popular places where you could try your luck. Personally, I think weddings are the place to be if you wish to meet the most eligible bachelors. A salsa dance class is another place where you are sure to find someone you could connect with.
Go Online: Options available on the internet are innumerable. You are not the only one suffering from the pangs of loneliness. There are hordes of souls looking for their soulmate, and the cyberspace provides respite in the form of dating and matchmaking sites.
Call on Friends: If you are not too comfortable with the anonymous prospects springing out from the cyberspace, then call your friends and relatives. Tell them that you are ready to meet men. Call friends over the weekends and ask them to bring a friend who is also open for new relationships.
Break the Ice: Be it a party at your home or a night out with friends and friends' friends, remember that gone are the days when the demure girl was the one that took the heart of the most eligible guy. This is the 21st century and men appreciate confident girls who can make the first move.
Give Him the Opportunity: If you have broken the ice with this cute looking guy who makes your heart flutter every time you see him, then give him the chance to exhibit the sure signs that he likes you. If you all are dining together and you have an inkling that he likes you, linger on for a little while, till you are sure that he would be sitting right next to you. Let him pull out the chair if he wants to, give him the chance to ask you out if he intends to. In case he doesn't take the step, you should better know how to ask this guy out.
For all you young girls who want to know how to meet guys in college, borrow books and notes from the guy you like. Is he a mathematics geek? Pretend that the numbers and symbols of the subject look Greek to you and ask if he could help you with a particular chapter. For those women who have suffered in abusive relationships and have separated from their husbands, it is all the more important to know how to meet men after a divorce. Not only does it take one's mind off the traumatic episode of divorce, but if one meets the right kind of guy, it also gives everyday a new meaning.
Although what we are talking about here is far wider than the scope of just one article, you could at least start from here. However, it is important for every woman to understand that more than the place or the tactic, it is the attitude that would help you to meet the right kind of a guy.
