Where to find good men: Places to meet nice guys with common interests
Where to find good men? Which are the best places to meet nice single guys? Where do all the cute guys hang out? From coffee shops to music stores, from art galleries to yoga classes and from parks to interest based hobby classes – find out how and where you can meet good men. By the end of this post, you will realize that well-mannered single guys who are nice at heart aren't that hard to find.
1) Quaint coffee shops: Spotting guys who are reading books or fiddling with their smartphones and tablets
Coffee shops are awesome places to meet nice guys and start never-ending conversations over a hot cuppa. You will easily be able to spot a single guy in a coffee shop because he is likely to be found reading a book, using the Wi-Fi to browse on his iPad or fiddling around with his smartphone while reading a newspaper.
If you love coffee and you like the idea of spending a few hours at your favorite quiet little coffee shop, you may be lucky enough to bump into a guy who is fun to hang out with.
2) Meet intellectually inclined men at the library and at bookstores
It is unlikely that you will find a brash guy sitting in the library while catching up on interesting reads. Reading is perceived to be something that intellectually driven people like and in the library, you will find exactly that.
Go hang out at your local public library. If you decide to go to a book store instead, pick one in downtown because they are generally thriving with activity. Whoever knew that one of the benefits of reading would also include meeting interesting men.
3) Meeting creative and cute guys at art galleries
Art galleries are awesome places to meet cute single guys. This is where all the amateur art connoisseurs, hipsters, photographers, designers and other creatively inclined men come to check out different works of art.
Gallery opening nights and exhibitions for contemporary art are nice places to begin. If you are an artsy person yourself, you will love going to galleries and spending hours hanging out with artists and other like-minded people.
4) Museums are great places to meet men with similar interests
Museums are great places to meet single men if you are inclined towards a specific interest domain too. Here you are likely to meet single men who are slightly introvert and like hanging out on their own. You could even bump into guys who are studying for college and researching for their academic pursuits.
Go to a museum only if you are interested in that niche interest area. If being chatted up by a good looking history buff isn't your idea of a mushy conversation, stay away from museums.
5) Niche workout classes: Avoiding the typical gym alpha male with bulging biceps
A gym may not be the best place to meet nice men because it is hard to tell them apart when every other guy is flaunting his biceps to impress girls. But on the other hand, niche workout classes like Yoga or maybe even Pilates are good places to meet guys who are not wired the same way as other men.
The average loud talking male is unlikely to be found in a niche workout class like Yoga because he is likely to see it as an un-manly thing to do. On the other hand, a guy who goes to Yoga class is perceived to be open-minded an aware.
6) Meeting nice guys at the supermarket
Most men are averse to grocery shopping. They would rather choose to take up another responsibility and have their girlfriends and wives do the grocery shopping. This means that the men who are diligently shopping for groceries in the supermarket are likely to be single.
Tip: Organic food aisles are good places to meet people who believe in a healthy way of life and have the money to spend a few more dollars on quality products.
7) Charitable organizations: Meeting guys who have the heart to volunteer
There is little more that you can say about a guy's personality when he uses his spare time to help underprivileged kids or animals in distress. This is why charitable organizations are a nice place, not only to get a whole new life experience, but also to meet interesting guys.
It takes a man with a vision to make volunteering a priority in his life. If you like the idea of going out with a guy who is passionate about a cause, volunteering could be how you get to meet him. Apart from the chance of stumbling upon Mr. Right, volunteering will also help you give back to the society.
8) Walk your dog in the dog park to meet guys who love dogs
If you are a dog owner, the easiest way to meet guys is to walk your dog in the park. You will bump into fellow dog owners and possibly, cute guys who bring their pooches out for a bit of sunshine.
It is extremely easy to start a conversation with another dog owner because it is as simple as asking about his dog's breed, behavioral tendencies, diet and other stuff.
9) Going to your friend's workplace and being set up with your friend's colleague
If you are desperate to get back into the dating scene, just hop over to your friend's workplace in your best clothes. Make your way into your friend's office at lunch time and get to know some of his or her colleagues over lunch.
If you find someone cute and interesting, ask your friend to set you up. The biggest advantage of doing this is that the guy won't be a total stranger. You friend will have a decent idea of the type of guy he is and whether he is the right one for you.
10) Meeting interesting guys at foreign language classes
Foreign language classes are interesting places to meet guys because it makes an average person wonder why a man would want to learn a foreign language in the first place. It could be because he wants to travel to that part of the world or because he is simply intrigued by a new culture.
Whichever the reason, it needs a man with an interesting personality to take up foreign language classes without any real need to learn a new lingo. If you have always wanted to learn a new language, sign up and keep your fingers crossed that you will bump into someone special.
11) At a music store: Meeting guys who play music
Music stores are a nice place to meet guys who are heavily into music. If you are a musician yourself, you will find the whole ambiance of a busy music store perfect for a flirty chat because you will be in your element.
The best part about being in a music store is that you will never run out of conversation starters. From instruments to favorite bands, there will always be something for you to talk about. If possible, head over to the biggest music store in downtown because they are generally buzzing with activity.
12) Meeting guys at interest based hobby classes
Interest based hobby classes are possibly the perfect place to meet nice guys with whom you will probably have a lot in common with. Whether it is photography, painting or drama, hobby classes for specific interest groups are a great way to connect with like-minded people.
Apart from improving your social life when it comes to guys, such hobby classes will also help you reconnect with your own core interests and likes. They are a great way to just get away from the humdrum of daily life.
13) Book clubs are a nice place to meet guys if you like reading
Book clubs are hot spots for social activity and are a must for book lovers. Join a book club if you haven't already. Apart from being able to read more books, you will also meet new people - hopefully guys who you would want to go out with.
