Listings of Perfect Meeting Places for Girls and Guys Seeking Relationships
Ladies, take heart. This is not . . .
Nice people like these are available to meet YOU!
This is a mostly-serious piece that is directed at the happily (recently) divorced, lonely, and single girls and guys.
No, I am not running an online dating service. And thankfully, I am not endowed with the powers to see the future. I am just one voice speaking from personal experience on what I believe to be, one of the most important issues facing the above list of people: where to meet other good people who are very anxious to meet you.
My advice is free. No charge to you. No salesman will call. I am donating my time to you in order to make it easy and available for you, if you are in the list of people above, to have a happy life. Forget the past. And move on to bigger and better things, but on this trip, with "the" right companion.
Don't be fooled. Or told by so-called "love and social experts," that you are going to face your life alone due to that nasty divorce. Or unable to find a good man or woman due to your age or circumstances. And you have probably been told that you are just going to have to "suck it up," and accept the harsh fact that you are stuck in the single life.
Good friends and companions are out there. Believe me. I have done some extensive (undercover) research. My conclusion is that this world has too many people for people such as yourself to not have a good, warm friend or life-long companion. Whomever you have been talking to hasn't been in the "real" world lately. So just forget what those "love and dating hucksters" have told you and read the rest of this story.
What I want to do is give you "Five Perfect Places to Meet Guys," for the happily-divorced and single ladies and "Five Perfect Places to Meet Girls," for men in the same category. I think that's fair. Five places for the ladies. Five places for the guys. No harsh feelings from either sex. I like peaceful feelings. Especially when the peaceful feelings include myself.I'm old-fashioned, and not sorry for that fact, as I say, let's go with . . ."Five Perfect Places To Meet Guys," as I wanted to let the ladies be first.
THE CLEANER, DECENT TRUCKSTOPS
you may not believe this, ladies, but there ARE clean truckstops that are owned and operated by professional people who strive to have the best truckstop in the United States. Years back a dark stigma was attached to truckstops because a handful of "bad apple" truck drivers would blow into the place and while their rig was being serviced, they would hit on as many innocent girls as possible. Not anymore. The bigger, cleaner and more-professional truckstops have the best dining facilites anywhere. And another thing. Not all truckdrivers are jerks, low-lifes or shiftless men out for a "roll in the hay." Some of these truckstops are so safe, that you can check them out without your best girlfriend accompaying you. So dress in your finest jeans, yellow CAT "diesel power" cap and head out for what might be "the time of your life." NO TRUCK DRIVING EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED.
yes, the good ol' bowling alleys. They are still around. And good looking single guys still patronize these American establishments. Do you bowl? No? That's okay, ladies. I'm sure that some lonely, handsome man will be happy to give you all of the free bowling lessons you need to be a part of his world. Oh, you might think about buying a bowling ball. You never know where those bowling balls used in bowling alleys have been.
Larry, The Cable Guy, cannot be wrong. He talks about flea markets in his act like he has been to a flea market. So if Larry endorses flea markets, they have to be a great place to meet your "dream boat" guy. Here's a free tip: Take some of your unused items around your apartment and "act" shy and coy when this guy comes around. Then say, "this is new for me. I am not used to doing things for myself," and bam! "Mr. Right," will jump like he's been shot at and before long, he has you set-up in a booth near him selling things like stuffed raccoons, rusty horseshoes, and vintage GI Joe dolls without the heads. Flea Markets are one of the best-kept secrets of the dating world.
ladies, stop and think for a moment. You know that at most P.T.A. meetings there has to be a good looking, successful single father there to hear about the latest school policies. Who says you need to have a child to attend one of these meetings? Just walk in quietly and survey the crowd. If you see the guy I am talking about, he will probably be dressed in loafers, a cardigan sweater and wearing gold-rim glasses, then get the seat nearest him. Soon, when he gets a whiff of your Chanel No. 5, he will start a conversation and all you have to do is say a word now and then. Easy as falling off a bar stool.
are where some of the most-eligible bachelors and divorced guys go just to have somewhere to go. They will never expect a hot girl like you who is there not to look at vintage Huey Lewis and The News CD's, but them. All you do, ladies, is ask a few simple questions like, "say, sweetie, where is the Jazz section?" and he is yours. Trust me. He knows more about love and being hurt than he does Jazz. Give it a shot, ladies. You and a nice guy like the ones in a music store could "make beautiful music together." Sorry for the pun, but it was too good to pass up.
And now for the Single, Divorced or Just Plain Lonely Guys . . .
if you have one, guys, is the ideal place to meet hot chicks. You know the type. Long blond hair, sunglasses and a tan to die for. You don't have to be a world champion surfer like Walter Laramie, just "act it up," a little. Go online and snap some surfing terms like "hang ten," "el primo" and "beast of a wave, dude," and these surfer chicks will take to you like the latest fad in makeup. Let them, the chicks, teach you how to surf. It's fine to fall on your face. Girls love a clumsy guy who is very lovable.
I know. You need your sleep. But we are talking a little sacrifice on your behalf. Visit an all-night diner anywhere in or out of your hometown. And preferably around 1:30 and 3 a.m. any morning. "She" will be there - - -sitting alone sipping black coffee just pining away for some neat guy like you to walk in and make her night complete. Did you know that a lot of hot chicks are not into the party scene? They may appear like that to make their girlfriends happy, but deep down inside they love a quiet, all-night diner and some good talk with a guy like you. Trust me.
THE POLICE STATION
time for you, lonely fella, to be a "good Samaritan." Just dress casual and show up at any police station on a Christmas or New Year's Eve and take your pick of hot girls who are about to be thrown in jail for anything from disturbing the peace to public intoxication. All you do is tell the arresting officer that "you" will be more than glad to pay the chick's bail and take her home. Then you sober her up. And when she wakes up, she will be yours as long as you want. Hey, some girls like to overdo the party thing at holidays. You are doing them and the police a favor by keeping them off the streets and giving the police a break from all that annoying paperwork.
WOMEN'S CLOTHING STORES
how confident are you? And how secure are you in your manhood? If you answered "good," to one or both of these questions, then this place I am sending you to meet chicks is perfect with a capital "P," and that rhymes with "D" and that stands for "date." Just walk into any women's clothing store and "act" nervous and out-of-place. An attractive salesperson named, "Margaret," a girl your age, not a "Muffy," who is a college student just there for a paycheck, will surely ask, "may I help you?" You wipe your head as if you are sweating. Fumble your words too. This will make "Margaret" giggle. Now the ice is broken. Then the deal-sealer. You say in a low voice, "I am looking for something nice for my girlfriend." "Margaret," will start showing you items like bra's, negligees, and bodysuits. As "Margaret," is showing the items to you, you casually interject, "yeah. I do this every year. I buy my "ex" girlfriend a nice item," "Margaret," stunned at your remark, says, "your "ex"? Why?" "Ohhh, (sigh), I loved her so much that when she left me after ten years for that young college professor, I just couldn't move on with my life," and then you look down as if you are hiding some tears. "Margaret's" nurturing instincts will kick in and start finding out more about you. Just play along and then ask her, "say, I know this sounds forward, but would you allow me the honor of buying you a cup of coffee or some great-tasting sushi?" Believe me. "Margaret" will more than not, say "I'd love to." Try this, guys. What have you got to lose?
are probably the wisest place to meet girls I have ever published. A vast majority of girls both single or divorced, love pets. Cute and fuzzy puppies, cats, and talkative birds. All you do is walk into a pet store and make sure that there are some hot girls shopping there before you enter, and do the "ex" girlfriend gig again, but this time say that your pet turtle, "Joe," who you raised from a baby, just up and died. And you are not over him yet. Cry real tears and tremble with remorse. Talk long and deep about how you loved "Joe," and how your now "ex" girlfriend left you because she was jealous of you and "Joe's" friendship. It will not be long before one, maybe two great-looking gals will almost beg for you to ask them out for pizza. And if you do get a date with one of these girls and end up at her place, YOU MUST LOVE WHATEVER PET SHE HAS AT HOME. This is crucial. No matter if it's a sheep dog, Siamese cat or alligator. By loving her pet, she feels loved by you. So get dressed and go for it.
I wish I had been given these tips for meeting girls when I was single. Many is the time that my love life simply "went to the dogs."
