Dating in the 21st Century: A Single Girl's Guide to Keeping Sanity - Part Two

Updated on October 1, 2012

Part Two: The Search for Soul Mates

If it is a soul mate you seek then look no further. Here are some tips on finding your potential soul mate in the Chicagoland area.

Singles' Events

Time Out Chicago

One way to find Mr. Right is thru mutually shared activities. The magazine Time Out Chicago is a wonderful resource for events happening weekly in the Chicagoland area. Catch a play, see a band, or visit a museum. You never know when you will bump into someone doing the same.

First Fridays at the Museum of Contemporary Art

Are you into art? Look no further for Mr. Right at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s First Fridays where singles can mix and mingle over their shared interest of art. Advance tickets purchased online are $14.00 and include admission, live entertainment, and complimentary Wolfgang Puck hor d’oeuvres. Doors open from 6 to 10 p.m.

Icebreakers include the infamous dot color personality quiz where participants discover which dot color personalities mesh by taking a quick survey. Walk around and discover your color match and strike up a conversation.

Mutually Shared Activities

Do you love to practice yoga, take cooking classes, wine sample, or even play volleyball? Meet people that enjoy shared interests. Sites like help people find groups around Chicago to meet new friends or potential new mates.

A Friend of a Friend

Do not count out networking to establish bonds with potential mates. Your friends are excellent sources for potential dates.

Online Dating

Many busy individuals flock to online dating websites. From age, race, sex, or profession many websites allow the user to browse databases and design profiles to attract a potential mate. I would advise this to be the absolute last resource used to find mates. Be wary of those you have not met face to face.

Giving Up

You have tried everything and have decided to let nature take its course. Perhaps you have met some new friends along the way but you haven’t gotten closer to a mate. That’s okay. Repeat it to yourself … “It is okay.” There is a certain dignity to being single in the 21st Century. Don’t believe me? Find out why there is dignity in remaining single in part three aptly named “The Dignity of Being Single.”
