Top 5 Places to meet Singles [The Cheat Sheet]
Last Update : May 28, 2019 by Olivia
When it comes to agreeing on the best places to meet singles…Single people tend to have the same complaint: it is hard to meet other single people.
But is it really hard?
With the boom of apps and dating sites to interact and meet new friends, people are more connected than ever.
But is that a good thing? Does it make it easy for singles to meet potential partners? Or does it become more complicated…
The more people you can reach, the more possibilities expand but the harder it also becomes to choose and meet someone special.
However, let’s face it. Being single is nothing new.
People throughout the centuries have been looking for love and looking for a partner.
The difference is that before, social circles were very limited so people used to get romantically involved with people in their same social circle.
But the concepts of love and romantic expectations have also evolved. Nowadays we want more than a relationship “until death do us part”, in order to have a socially accepted role in society and start creating a family.
So how can you really meet singles this year? what are the best places to meet new people?
How to meet Singles in 2019
It’s time to take matters into your own hands!
You’re single, perhaps you’ve just become single very recently and you’re ready to date again, or perhaps you’ve been single for a while now, and you’d like to spice up your romantic life a bit.
Right. Time to be proactive.
In this cheat sheet, we’ve summed up the top 5 places to meet singles: they might seem obvious but they’re the key to a successful strategy.
A strategy, indeed, like everything in life, if you’re just waiting for things to happen, it might actually never happen.
The same happens with love. If you’re one of the thousands of hopeless romantic people that have watched too many romantic films in which love just knocks at your door…well my friend, it’s time to do a reality check.
If you want to meet other single people it’s time to start your own action plan!
Action Plan: How to find a Match!
Get a pencil and a paper and start planning!
Before starting, however, you have to make sure that you are in the right mindset. You’ve got to be positive, welcoming, opened to new discoveries and most importantly, you’ve got to feel confident.
It is easier said than done, we agree, but it is an essential part of the success of this action plan.
Confidence is one of the most attractive traits of a person. It doesn’t matter if the person is shy or outgoing, there are many different types of confidence, and my friend, if you want to attract, you have to be confident that you’re worth it.
Confidence is a tricky matter, however. It is like a vicious circle. Lack of confidence makes us feel bad, it makes us feel like things that seem to be easily reachable to other people become impossible for us, and, sadly, the more we fall into a lack of confidence, the harder things seem to be.
So what’s the real history behind confidence?
It might sound a bit shocking to some people… but people that lack confidence tend to fall quite often into victimism.
And there’s only one way of stopping it: stop feeling like you are the victim and take action!
The best part?
Once you become totally in control of your actions, once you put an aim and you take actions towards it, confidence will naturally boost your mood.
To sum up: action plan + confidence = an open mind to attract and meet singles.
So coming back to that action plan…
How can you actually do an action plan to meet singles?
Well, it’s pretty easy: we recommend you to use the top 5 best places we’ve mentioned above in order to maximize your chances of success!

The benefits of being Single
Being single has really been stigmatized in our societies. Both men and women have always been under pressure to find a partner in order to feel somehow accomplished.
But society changes and nowadays, although social pressure is still latent, many singles have started to claim their single status and its benefits.
Being single involves certain freedom. The freedom to choose, the freedom to experience different types of romances…
Flirting is a great experience indeed. An experience that long-term couples tend to lose. That’s why you should embrace being single!
You have a whole world in front of you to explore!
It is also very important when it comes to the experience of “love” to learn to know yourself before trying to share your life with somebody else. In that sense, being single is a very important step, a very important experience to have before even considering trying to find a healthy long-term relationship.
So if you’re single and you would like to meet other singles, stop complaining and start meeting!
You’ve got all the tools at your reach!
