    Eh I'm bored, and I have a severe case of writer's block at the moment, so i decided to open up another forum in a category that i've noticed no other hubber has bothered to open up a forum about yet...so....I would like to ask you all this.  How and where you suggest single people should go to meet other singles.

      One may hire a matchmaking service, attend speed dating events, attend church singles programs, rely on friends and family for introductions, sign up with Single Cruises.com http://www.singlescruise.com/  which is a site that books cruises for singles and if one lives near a large metropolitan area there are always events taking place where singles gather.

      It would also pay to check out Meetup.com. This is not a dating site but primarily a site for those who have common interests to get together to meet once a month or weekly. Interests range from wine tasting, yoga, hiking, meditation, dancing, theatre goers, writers, book clubs, and so on. There are also singles networking and mixer groups as well.

      The great thing about Meetup.com is it allows people to get to know one another gradually over time by attending meetings without the pressure of "mate seeking". You're basically there to enjoy a shared activity with members of those groups. Odds are there will be single people in every group. At worst case you make some new friends who may know of someone you'd be interested in meeting.

      There are also a ton of online dating sites. If someone is serious they should skip the free one though. It pays to do research as not all sites are equal. Ultimately it comes down to who (you) choose to meet.
      This dating advice site offers the Pros & Cons of the top online sites as well as provide a break down by gender. http://www.datingadvice.com/reviews

      There are also "niche" dating sites which are good those people with "must haves" (religion, race, love pets, political party...etc) This is one link that lists 12 of them but there are many more. http://www.cnbc.com/id/45553539/page/2

      The bottom line is in order to meet new people you have to get out of the house! :-)

      Your question hints as "where to go to meet the opposite sex", & you do that by doing only what you really want/love to do yourself....So a single person male or female should think about, then do all the things they ever really wanted to do....At the same time totally forget about meeting single people, as that will happen automatically as they get out there doing what "they" want to do....It's like you have to find yourself first, & your passions in life before you get in a relationship with someone.....As you find yourself & your passions in life, your opportunities to meet/date girls will increase massively.....I mean someone's ideal partner or soul mate if you like will have a lot in common with them already, so logically thinking everyone's ideal partner is already out there doing what "they" love to do....So instead of finding that girl/boy they don't have to, they only have to find their own passions in life the girl/boy is already there waiting!lol....So it seems obvious to me that the question shouldn't be where to go, but what do i want to do. :-)

    If you are trying to become un-single, there are few routes more efficient than (A) going to bars and (B) telling your married friends and family that you want to be set up with someone.  Married people love matchmaking.  If you're religious, then (C) church, church, church, and more church.

    The conventional advice about getting involved in activities also works, but not nearly as well.  The pottery classes and hiking clubs are filled with married people (often attending alone to get away from their families for a while.)
