Girls suggest six unexpected locales where men can go to find love.
You can only hit up so many bars and bookstores before you realize one of two things: Either your killer smile isn't that isn't charming IRL or you're probably not looking in the right places. One thing you're forgetting is how you approach women is just as important as where.
If this were a 90s movie, all you'd have to do is lock eyes with her across the record store or expertly slide yourself into a conversation with her at the bar. But since this isn't a movie and those moves come off as creepy (so don't even think about trying them), these unconventional (but totally genius) spots are just what you need to get your flirt on.
1. Trader Joe's
It's no secret that Trader Joe's serves up some serious deals that attract foodies and bargain hunters like nobody's business. As you're both reaching for the two-buck Chuck wine, casually mention that you love cooking 5-star meals for half the cost. Any person who appreciates a good sale and isn't afraid to wait in those crazy lines for one is a keeper.
2. Game Night
According to the Daily Dot, women "now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry [and make up] a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population." So if you're into Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, your chances of finding love while battling it out on the multiplayer campaign just got a whole lot better.
3. A Concert
Before you roll your eyes at this one, just think about it for a second. You already know you both have an undeniable love for Coldplay so why not show off your game by using that as an icebreaker? This study even confirms that 70 percent of people would rather date someone who has the same taste in music. So yes, being a music snob finally has some major perks.
4. The Dog Park
If a dog lover sounds like your kind of match (um, YES!), this is the perfect place to show off your sweet and funny side. You can even take it a step further by hitting up your local animal shelter.
5. Wine Tasting
This one's almost too easy. What could be better than fine wine and good company? The best part is that if you don't get lucky, at least you've got a nice buzz going — which means everybody wins. You're welcome.
There's a ridiculous amount of groups — of both the professional and fun variety — that you can join on Meetup. Finally, you can mix business with pleasure and STILL come out on top (wink, wink). Sign us up!
