Most people think that you can only meet women out at social events like bars or parties or that they only exist on online dating sites. This is SO not true!
Most of your day is spent outside of these types of mediums. If you live in a city, you see thousands of people pass each day! So many beautiful women, so little time!
To help you guys out, here are the 5 best places to meet women during the daytime!
1. Coffee shops
Yes, it sounds cliché, but the coffee shop has become the de-facto hang-out now in urban areas. People will bring their laptops or books and pull up shop for hours!
For many who work at home, this is their office. You, my friend, in a way, are her coworker! All those “water cooler conversations” that would have been had at the office can now be filled by you.
They are in no rush to go anywhere so they are easy to strike up a conversation with. Ask them what they are working on. Share what you’re working on, even if it’s in its infancy stage.
2. The Gym
I think everyone belongs to a gym these days, whether they actually show up or not! If you belong to one, it’s a prime space for meeting like-minded individuals. You both value your health, you’re both trying to make yourself better and you both know the value of a good sweat!
There are just so many noncommittal ways to start a conversation such as:
- Maybe you need to use the machine after them and you talk about how to use it, settings, etc…
- Maybe you’re both grabbing a drink/resting at the same time so you talk about power bars, stickers on their water bottle, or just share how exhausting the experience is
- Or you could always go with the classic technique and offer to spot them
Don’t go for the immediate full conversation or asking for a number right out the gate, though.
A good portion of people at the gym are not experts. If you are, humbly ask if you can assist a woman who might look new or inexperienced. Or, if you’re not, consider asking them if they could help you out.
Exchanging tips on working out opens up endless directions to take the conversation, and it will lead to a naturally reoccurring dialogue that can build into something serious.
If she belongs to your gym, you’ll see her again. Just start building a friendly relationship and see where it goes!
Many people think that the subway is a tough place to meet people. They are in their own world, listening to music, playing games on their phone, reading, etc.
However, what are they actually doing? Killing time! They’re not doing anything important.
Do you like meeting interesting people? So does everyone! She would much rather kill time talking to a nice, attractive guy than playing Candy Crush. Plus, there’s a nice time limit built-in, so everyone knows it’ll be a short convo.
Not getting too attached to these passing meetings is key. It will make you more relaxed and allow for the conversation to flow more casually.
Ask her where she’s headed; is she a tourist or local? And when your stop is coming up, it gives you the perfect excuse to ask for her number! And if you’re lucky, you can get another number on your way home!
If nothing else, it’s fantastic practice for sparking up a casual conversation that will always help down the line.
4. Book Stores
I love meeting people, especially women, in book stores! Again, people are there to kill a little time so you really won’t be interrupting their day. And there are so many topics to bring up in conversation!
It’s almost like you can pick and choose the type of personality. Women in the Manga section are going to be way different than women in the Romance section, etc. You can scope out what books they are checking out and see if they are up your alley!
You can have endless discussions over comparing what books you have and haven’t both read. Remember to try listening to her answers more than reciting your impressive reading list. It will take some pressure off of you and allow her to feel more engaged.
The conversation can flow easily because there are so many things around you to talk about if you can’t think of anything? “Is that book good? What’s your favorite book ever?” And go from there!
Everyone loves it when it finally gets nice out! So when you live in an urban area, where do you head? The park!
It’s our best communal space. People are walking dogs, eating, reading, sketching, relaxing, etc. It’s a perfect medium in which to strike up a conversation. Hanging in the park puts everyone in a good mood.
There are so many around the NYC metro area that I’m sure that there is one close to you and I’d guarantee you that right at this moment, there’s a pretty girl there right now!
