5. Hang out where the browsing is good. To up your chances of meeting men while shopping, spend time in the sections of the store where people tend to linger. Try looking at the CDs and DVDs, cell phones and electronics or magazines and books. Even the produce aisle can work. The other great thing about browsing is that it's easier to think of something to say — you can rely on what you are both looking at to start chatting.
6. Talk to people in the checkout line. Since you often have to wait in line to check out, make good use of this time. Comment on what is on the magazine covers or the impulse items near the register. It doesn't matter what you say. The idea is that you casually get a conversation started.
