An alumni event
Another great place to meet a nice man is at an alumni event. Whether it’s for your graduate school, college, high school, junior high, or even your elementary school, attending alumni events can be an eventful way to meet a kind and caring man. Why? While many of these events are specifically geared toward networking, these occasions can also help to introduce you to the men in your area with whom you have already have a fundamental commonality and connection. Specifically, when you’re conversing with a fellow alum at these events, you already have some insight about him right off the bat, and learning more about the classes, activities, and pastimes that he was involved in at your alma mater can further shed some light on his personality and personal preferences. Plus, you may even know some of the same people, which can not only help to increase the bond that the two of you share, but can also enable you to gather more opinions about him in order to fully verify his nice guy status. And since these types of events are built around talking to others and exchanging information, it’s an easy way to make a connection with someone that could one day turn into a long-lasting school romance.
If you’re looking to meet a nice guy, consider going on a date set up by the people you know and trust. I’s time to stop being shy about your single status and start asking others if they have a nice guy with whom to fix you up. Whether you ask your friends, your family, a co-worker, or even your trainer at the gym, making it known that you’re actively looking to be set up can help to set the stage to meet a nice guy. After all, the more people you ask, the more likely you are to come across someone who knows a nice guy for you. Plus, the fact that you have someone in common who can actually vouch for this guy, and vouch for you in return, speaks volumes. So rather than meeting a random stranger, you can go on a date with a man who’s verifiably a good person and already shares a common connection with you right from the start.
You may not even be aware that your friend, relative, and/or colleague loves to play cupid and fix people up. Even if they don’t have someone in mind for you just yet, they’ll likely think of you the next time that they come across a nice guy of interest.
Attend church or a wedding.
I know, I know, it sounds cliché, and you might not even be religious for all I know, but that’s not the point. Places of worship—and for similar reasons, weddings—are a great place to meet men for two main reasons.
First, at church, much like at weddings, we are surrounded by other people who are already married with kids, and it makes us want to stop being so single. As much as we may enjoy the perks of bachelorhood, when a guy goes to his place of worship all by himself, it reminds him how much he would like to have someone there beside him and you will get his attention if you are there on your own too. So yeah you better believe I notice every woman under 40 in that church by the end of the sermon, and I’m not the only one.
Try sitting somewhere visible where there’s some space for a single guy to sit next to or near you. In fact, I know women who have even made it a rule to sit next to the first single guy they see, and I’m not kidding, you will make that guy’s day. And that doesn’t just apply to churches: try it on a plane, a bus, in libraries, restaurants with communal tables, or concerts too.
Activities that you enjoy
When you’re searching for a nice guy, it’s time to shift the focus onto yourself and concentrate on the different activities and pastimes that are important to you. Are you a yoga fanatic? An art history enthusiast? Or do you love to fish? The more that you engage in the activities that you thoroughly enjoy, the more likely you are to create new opportunities to meet considerate and kind men who share these same passions and priorities.
But it doesn’t stop there, as a vital part of upping your chances to meet a nice guy means that you have to be proactive and push yourself out of your comfort zone while pursuing these favorite activities. For instance, if you’re a huge sports fan, why not sign up for a coed soccer, baseball, or kickball team in your area and put yourself in the perfect position to meet a nice guy who knocks it out of the park in every sense? Plus, by expanding your network of men and women through engaging in these activities, you’re taking steps to increase the amount of people you know who could potentially have someone in mind for you.
