Where Can 30-Plus Single Guys Meet Women

Aug 17, 2007
There's a lot that can be said about single men in their thirties. Obviously, they have been around the playing field a couple of times and know what's out there.

With experience, they have learned what it is they want in a woman and what to avoid. Oftentimes, the problem isn't who they want and how to get her. Rather, it is where to find her.

If you're one of those men, then the time for picking up women at keggers and strip clubs is over (or maybe not).

You might still frequent bars and clubs for that occasional one-night roll in the hay, but if you're looking for a relationship with substance and staying power, that may not be where you will find the girl of your dreams.

It's time for a more refined locale as befits your acquired tastes and substance. The following are a few suggestions about where you can begin your search.

(1) The Gym or Fitness Class
Whether you are lifting weights or taking classes in Tae-Bo or yoga, gyms and fitness classes are an excellent place to meet attractive, well-toned women.

Nothing wrong with checking out your fellow gym rats (but do it discretely) or letting them check you out. And once you spot someone you like, try to find out her workout schedule or position yourself next to her in fitness class. There's nothing like a women who enjoys some strenuous physical activity.

(2) The Museum
Australia is home to some great museums and they attract countless women of good taste. And these women really know how to appreciate a man with a cultured mind. So brush up on your old art lessons so you can chat her up on the uses of color and shape. With any luck, you will be sharing more than just your opinions on art in no time.

(3) The Coffee Shop
If there's someone in your neighborhood you've taken a fancy to, then probably the best place to get to know her is your local coffee shop. Make it a point to bump into her while she's having coffee and ask her if you could sit with her. Women find this charming, especially if you have the conversational skills to capture her interest. Besides, she's probably seen you around the neighborhood as well.

Next thing you know, you will be buying her a cup of coffee on your first official date.

(4) The Bookstore
Women adore men who are witty and well-read, so it's a good idea to hang out near the collected works of E.E. Cummings. If you see someone you like, try to catch her eye. And don't be afraid to display your knowledge of literature and the arts. She will find this intriguing and impressive.

(5) House parties
This setting is ideal since all the guests obviously have mutual friends and probably common interests, plus with wine and other alcoholic beverages flowing freely, women are less inhibited and more likely to let their guard down.

It's easy to sidle up to a woman for a chat in a setting like this. Later, you can invite her to get some fresh air outside and ask for her number.

(6) Weddings
There is something about weddings that makes single women think about romance and meeting the man of their dreams ... or any man for that matter.

Meeting women at weddings is easy. Just walk up to her and start a conversation. You will be surprised at how receptive they are to that under these circumstances. A great ice breaker in this situation is to discuss how each of you know the bride and/or groom.

Of course, don't try that with someone who came with a date.

(7) Online Dating services
Of course, no such article would be complete without mentioning the hugely popular Online/Internet Dating services now available.

There are heaps to choose from, and it's almost like going to a restaurant - you can browse the "menu", and pick anyone you like, then say hi (via an email or instant message type alert). Once contact has been made, its over to you 2 lovebirds to see if you hit it off.

This approach has lots of advantages over the alternatives, if only because there's a large market of AVAILABLE ladies wanting to meet a nice guy.

In the words of Maverick (Top Gun), it's a "Target Rich Environment", so go for it Big Guy.
