Love Lesson #3 – Say "What the Heck" and Try Something New  to Meet Men

Do you do the same thing to meet men over and over? How is that one method working? If you’re not getting the results you want – Try Something New!

For some reason many people decide they hate singles dances, won’t try web dating or refuse to consider a blind date. Well it’s really your loss because these are all viable methods for meeting new candidates.
That’s how "What the Heck" thinking can really help you out. When you say that internally, you free yourself to take a chance. Being open to expanding your horizons creates so many more opportunities.
In addition, when you lift your limitations, you take some of the pressure off whatever new thing you try which helps you relax and enjoy yourself. Having fun and feeling relaxed makes you that much more attractive – and which is exactly what you want.
So, what have you been unwilling to do? Make a list of the singles activities you have previously refused to participate in. Then pick one or two that you think you might be able to tolerate. Or, go wild and chose the one that offers the greatest potential for meeting the most people. Which ever way you choose, commit to following through.
Here’s a brief list of options to get you thinking.
  • Singles Dances
  • Singles Hiking/Kayaking
  • Singles Ski Weekend
  • Speed Dating
  • Parents Without Partners Meetings/Events
  • – check for what’s in your area
  • Blind Dates
  • Web Dating
  • Dinner for Eight
But don’t limit yourself to these. Look in your newspaper’s calendar section. Check into what your church or temple may have to offer. Go online to check Craig’s List or simply Google "Singles + your city" in quotes and see what comes up. I have done this for many clients and found a flood of options they had never heard of. You can also check out my web site un the "Where to Meet" tab. There are countless alternatives listed on those pages.
