Where are all the single ladies? We’ve all asked a similar question once or twice in our lives. Sometimes no matter how hard we look, everyone seems to be taken and spoken or!
No matter what your sexual preference or identity, sometimes bad luck can poison your chances at successful dating, making every lovely lady you meet already in a relationship. But don’t lose hope my female-inclined friend, as this article seeks to guide any unfortunate lovers in their journey to find the one. We’ll run through some top tips in finding single ladies, as well as dispel some myths along the way?
So sit back and put on a bit of Beyoncé, because we’re about to find out just where all the single ladies near you are.
Widen your search
Long gone are the days where you’d be expected to marry someone only a few houses down. You don’t always need to keep your romantic interests so close to home. Try to meet single ladies in your neighbouring city or town, as sometimes the dating scene that’s closest to you might just not be working. A totally different environment will help you meet lots of new and interesting people. And who knows, one of them might just be ‘the one’!
If you’re worried about the responsibilities of a long-term relationship, just know that in our modern dating landscape, there are plenty of ways to stay in touch without being in touching distance. Video calls, texting, online movie nights, you name it! Being from slightly different areas gives you and your dates something to discuss as well, be it date locations, local sights or the best places to eat.
Get a dog!
People love dogs. People love talking about dogs. If you’ve ever walked a dog in a park, you’ll know from experience how often people will stop to talk to you on account of your four-legged friend. This is a great tactic if you want to meet new people.
Obviously this works even better if someone who catches your eye also happens to have a cute-faced pup with them.
While not an exact science, lots of single people have pets in order to reduce loneliness. And OK, you might bump into a fair amount of pet owners in relationships, there’s no harm in giving it a try.
With a faithful hound by your side you can also use them to create date opportunities like a joint dog walk or even a puppy play date.
Go to the library
Now your town’s library might be a meeting spot for single women of an elderly disposition (you never know, give it a try!), so it’s probably best to find the biggest library near to your location. Try visiting a city library for a relaxing day out and don’t focus so much on meeting people.
Lots of interesting people frequent libraries. If you’re a bookworm, then you’ll feel right at home. If you haven’t read a book since age 8, then there’s still hope too. Most modern libraries have many facilities for the public to use, including music technology, family history records and more.
If you’re in your early 20s, the library can be a great place to meet people, especially in big cities. This is because lots of students and college kids who are the same age as you will no doubt be hovering around the library on most days.
Get a hobby!
Nobody likes a serial dater. Trying to find single women should never, ever, be a hobby in and of itself. That’s why it’s always recommended that you get hobbies to give you more organic opportunities to meet people, as well as make you a more well-rounded person overall.
New hobbies include running (meeting people in local running groups), pottery (meeting people at pottery class or the workshop), fashion (meeting people in the shopping mall) and so many more!
Safe to say that having something to enjoy gives you a more likable personality, but also gives you lots more avenues to meet people. These people don’t even necessarily need to become your next sweetheart, but you’re sure to meet lots of interesting people in this new area of your life!
Wait for them
Perhaps the most risky decision on this list, sometimes a perfect match can’t get together simply because one of the parties is spoken for. Some of the most compatible people just don’t meet each other at the right time, leaving them both to wonder about what could have been.
If you think you’re in this position, then you could always wait for the opportunity for your would-be sweetheart to become single again. This is an incredibly risky decision, and shouldn’t be taken lightly. You never know how long someone’s relationship might last for, and it’s never a healthy foundation if you just sweep in at the last second.
However, if you know each other well and have been eyeing each other up for a long time, sometimes the best thing to do is simply wait.
Use an intelligent dating service
Why bother doing everything yourself when you can get it all automated? With robust matchmaking services like ClickDate, you’ll only need to find eligible hunnies that are all single ladies. No more awkward encounters or hurt feelings.
Better yet, ClickDate also finds matches based on your behaviour, not a profile you fill out yourself. This means that the matches given to you are based on data, meaning that you and your hopefully soon to be date should be hearing clicking well before the night is through.
