Finding local, single women to date can be accomplished by meeting people in the community or online. As of 2015, several online services and apps are designed to connect local singles, such as Tinder, OkCupid, Hinge and Coffee Meets Bagel.
OkCupid is an established service that allows users to scan for users in their area. Tinder displays users who are nearby, and users tag people they are interested in. When two users tag each other independently, Tinder helps them connect. Hinge and Coffee Meets Bagel are apps that connect users with potential matches that share mutual friends on Facebook. Hitch also uses Facebook friends, but it allows users' friends to pair them up. Down lets users pick friends and acquaintances from Facebook, and connects them with anyone who also chooses them.
Meeting people in the community is still an excellent way to meet potential partners. Joining a gym, participating in local politics, attending worship services or activities at a local church, volunteering at a soup kitchen or an animal shelter, working with a social justice group, and taking courses at a local university or college are great ways to connect with local women. This method also ensures that the women you meet share your interests.
