Single? How To Meet A Man At Starbucks

Single? How To Meet A Man At Starbucks [EXPERT]
Find out how you can get a date at your local coffee shop!

Don't leave the coffee shop until you've had at least three positive social encouters. Practice. Stretch. Get comfortable being a little bit uncomfortable, and see what happens. One of my most significant romantic relationships started just this way. I saw him sitting at a nearby table, and our eyes kept finding each other. 

Looking for some way to strike up a conversation, I noticed a book on his table that I'd heard about but hadn't yet read. Next time our eyes locked, I smiled and asked, "Hey, I noticed the book you're reading and it's on my list ... how is it?" He and I had a really gorgeous two-year relationship. If you're the "more feminine" woman who really wants the guy to make the first move, you'll want to practice signaling men (with your smile and your eye contact) to let him know you're open to having a conversation.

Have a blast. Have fun playing with your coffee shop flirting skills. Report back to let me know what's working for you.

Shocker! Men Want To Date Women Their Own Age

By

As a matchmaker, I often have beautiful, talented, magnificent single female clients in their fifties, who often miss out on the opportunity to date their equally remarkable gentlemen contemporaries. Why? Because those men believe that they should be dating younger women. Recently, however, I have been noticing a new trend: grown-up men who have discovered ... Read more
