It’s hard to solve the formulae of where to meet a soul mate and the essence of meeting a lifetime marriage partner is still a myth.
Professor John Gary, the author of ‘10 Great Places to Meet Your Soul Mate (You Don’t Have to Go Online!)’ stated that, “In this Internet age, many of us seem to have forgotten the many ways people met before anyone knew what a megabyte of memory was. For those who have, and for the many others who have used a variety of online dating and social networking websites and collected a series of bad experiences, it’s time to review a list of great places to meet great mates the old fashion way: Eye to eye, and heart to heart.”
He suggested ten places and they include;
Don’t miss the chance to attend a friend’s party. There is still no better way to meet a mate than to be introduced by a friend.
Get active in a community cause or service. Doing something you have a passion for is the opportunity to meet someone who shares that passion.
Be a team player. Whatever the interest or sport, from softball to bowling league, or charity tennis too; so many people meet sharing good times and great games.
Never miss a chance for a class reunion. Countless matches have been made at class reunions. That guy you thought was kind of goofy at 17 has turned into a 27 year-old hunk, and that bookish gal in the class of ‘99 is a knockout in 2009.
Beware of group intimidation. Breakout of the crowd and fly solo now and then if you’re hoping to be seen as approachable whether at the town picnic, or the neighborhood bar.
Special events are the right events for you. Don’t miss these because you’re not the only one coming without a date.
Join the gym. Whether it’s a yoga class, spinning, weight work, or just sitting in a co-ed sauna, gyms, they are great places to meet others who share your interest in staying fit and active.
Museums are places where you can admire more than just the art. It’s easy to see singles and those who are attached when wandering past exhibits. And there is nothing like a beautiful work of art to spark a conversation.
Be in a place of good cheer. When the local team is playing a big game, go and have a beer or wine at the local sports bar. There is something magical about sports. If they lose the big game remember the old adage: misery loves company.
Get to sit at the beach to see the sunset. If you live near one go sixty minutes before sunset. Generally by that time families have left for home and you have adult couples and singles left. Perhaps it’s a time of reflection that comes over us all as the sun starts to settle into the sea, but you’d be amazed by how many romances have started when two lonely spirits meet on a beach at sundown.
