19 Hot Ways To Meet New People

It is another weekend in which you have no real plans. Most of your friends are cosying up with their own partners. How dull. It is time to get proactive. Here some imaginative ways to get yourself out of the house.

19 Hot Ways To Meet New People

  • Check out what you perceive to be a dodgy ethnic restaurant in your area. You may find a gem or you might just end up with food poisoning. You might even find ‘The One’ standing behind the counter donning an apron and hair net.  Either way, you will be able to say “I know this great little place”  should the occassion arise. Alternatively, check out online discounts on offer at swankier restaurants that you might not otherwise visit.
  • Volunteer. It is a fun way to meet new people and you’will gain heaps of good karma.
  • Strike up a conversation with a total stranger.
  • Join an online dating website.
  • Hang out with old people. They have great stories and sometimes need the company. And they might have a buff granddaughter or grandson.


  • Have coffee in a bookstore. Settle down in one of their super-comfy armchairs and read one of their books whilst keeping an eye out for hot patrons!
  • Go to a dating event. Obviously we rate d.etal Events
