Last week, I wrote a guest post over at The Chick Lit Bee about how we single gals would meet men if we were, indeed, heroines of our own chick lit adventures. They always seem to run into a handsome, charming and available stranger somewhere in their day-to-day.
Since I’m being quite the go-getter in 2011 AND because I love the idea of scoping out and flirting with attractive men and calling it research, I am going to explore one organic way to meet a man every month.
Here’s my subject-to-change schedule:
January – Bar
February – Gym
March – Driving Range
April – Community Events
May – Grocery Store
June – Sports Game
July – Man Stores like Sports Authority, Home Depot and Apple
August – Vacation
September – Volunteering
October – Wedding(s)
November – Bookstore
December – Coffee Shop
So, how am I going to play this game?
Stake out these places. Assess the attractive, single male situation. Look damn good AND approachable. If “approachable” is not working, approach (it is 2011 after all). Flirt.
The ultimate goal is to actually have a date come out of these stake outs. This isn’t just a social experiment to discover the best places (in the greater Phoenix-area anyway) to meet men, it’s also going to be a bit of a challenge for little, introverted me and great dating practice. (However, I’m a romantic at heart and if I meet someone potentially great, the game pauses indefinitely.)
Anybody else need to up their game and want to join me? What places have you met men that I might have overlooked?
