Tele-gatherings take place on the third Monday of the month at 8 p.m. – the next one is on May 15th.  Our topic will continue to discuss what is keeping you from dating and/or attracting the right people to date.   We will talk about internal and external roadblocks to dating.  Come explore with us!

Where to Find Your Significant Life Partner

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 was active and liked doing what they did.  I met my college boyfriend on the tennis courts of Long Island the summer before I started my freshman year!

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!
    1. As 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
    2. As 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.

  1. For the more intellectually oriented:
    • Bridge groups
    • Chess groups
    • Discussion groups on topic of male interest
  2. For those more politically oriented:
    • Fundraising activities
    • Local politics
    • Rallies and demonstrations
  3. Religious institutions 
    • Religious study classes
    • Weekly services
    • Social events or speakers at your religious institution
