Here's where the women are.
Yoga classes-try one or two, you won't be the only guy.
Dance classes. Women love to dance. There are great beginner classes. One male friend of mine said it was like shooting fish in a barrel.
Volunteering- for almost anything. Women are civic minded and want to help.
Night classes. They are everywhere and women go to them because they are lonely too.
Ask your friends to set you up. Make the effort to go on at least 3 dates with a girl before you decide to dump her.
Cafes & bookstores. Find a wing man and go trolling in these places.
Dress well, be well groomed. Read the paper so you can talk about current events. Show interest in her and don't talk about yourself. If all else fails, ask her if she has any pets.
