Where To Find Your 'Motivated To Marry' Partner

Look for activities where the people you want to find are in the majority.

My philosophy from a very young age is to go where the guys are. I was lucky to
have an older brother and I used to play tennis, biked, ran track (the girls practiced
with the guys) and skied. I met a lot of guys during that time and always had a
boyfriend since the 9th grade because I liked doing what they did. I met my college
boyfriend on the tennis courts!

The following activities are where women, as a whole, would be in the minority and I
recommend them to seek out to meet men:

1. Anything related to sports!

A. A s an participant:
- Bicycling groups
- Tennis ladders and clinics
- Ski clubs
- Running clubs
- Rollerblading
- Coed-softball teams or games
- Coed-volleyball teams or games
- Racquetball leagues and ladders
- Golf clubs
- Kickball teams
- Ultimate Frisbee
- Coed Soccer leagues
- Bowling leagues
- Working out with weights at the gym

B. A s a spectator:
- Sports bars with viewing of basketball, football, baseball games. (Especially March madness!)
- Going to college or professional sports games: baseball, basketball, football, soccer and hockey.

2. Internet Dating Sites:
Since guys see the internet as time and money efficient, this is a good way to connect with guys. Also, going in chat rooms with any subject you are interested in may
be a good way to connect.

3. For the more intellectually oriented:
- Bridge groups
- Chess groups
- Discussion groups on topic of male interest

4. For those more politically oriented:
- Fundraising activities
- Local politics

5. Religious institutions
- Religious study classes
- Weekly services
- Social events or speakers at your religious institution

For men, I recommend you go where the women are mostly likely to be. Women
partake in these various activities and where women usually outnumber men!

4. Theatre Groups

5. Movie groups, ie. the Film Society

6. The Arts
- Concerts
- Museum events in the evening and weekends

7. Easy hiking groups

8. Book clubs

9. Dance classes and dances

10. Wine tasting events

11. College Alumni events

12. Tour groups: cruises and bus tours
