Coffee House Great Place for Singles Dating

Sep 12, 2008
Coffee shops are one of the favorite places for singles to meet other singles. They are cozy and comfortable to begin with. It may seem obvious to some or strange to others. There might be doubts on your mind about the effectiveness of this dating style. Of course, it is not a hundred percent effective. But what will you lose? Dating is a serious business.

How do you start? Position yourself near the main door. You may want to seem approachable. Make a point of greeting each person who enters with a smile, comment or friendly hello. You will probably run into many people and you wont know who will be the One unless you talk to them. Starting a conversation with total strangers can be daunting, but with proper advice and learned skills on dating, you can make it happen.

Your conversation can start with introductions, talking and ending hopefully with plans to see each other again. Conversation starters can be comments on the coffee being served in that coffee shop, items on the table or anything you can both share in your immediate surroundings.

You can segue your conversation back to the other person. Probe this strangers thoughts and ideas until you can decipher if you can relate to him/her. But dont reveal yourself too much or the excitement you generated might be lost. Thank the other person for the time spent with you and let them know you would like the conversation to continue at another time when it is convenient for the both of you.

If you are on the same wavelength, thank your lucky stars. Your next meeting or date will be scheduled sooner than possible. As you are leaving, turn back and smile that enigmatic and special smile. Make them feel special and convey your willingness to meet again in a subtle way.

Act naturally and convey your interest in them. Some singles are divorcees, widows, widowers or really unattached. Those who went through these experiences need to live again. And one place for relaxation is a coffee shop. You can find them in a group or alone. Make the right approach, start a conversation and see what happens next. Carrying a conversation that fits the time, the place and the person is a complex skill.

It requires sensitivity to the moods or feelings of other people in the group. It requires ability to listen and to hear what others are saying. Facial expressions and right gestures will surely win people to you. Even though coffee shops may be full at times, try to focus your sole attention to the person you have singled out.

Being single is no reason to feel lonely or alone. It is not something to be ashamed of. Make your single life fun and fulfilling. Laugh often and this will make you younger and healthier. Many single people join some groups where they interact freely. Some dates begin from such social interactions. Relax and enjoy each others company.
