Good places to meet local single women include the gym, at a yoga class, in church, at a nightclub, at a movie theatre or in a coffee shop. The trick is to put yourself out there by going to social places where single women are likely to hang out.
You can also join a community support group whose members share common interests; be an active member so that you can meet as many group members as possible. If it is a dance group or class, ask one of the women to be your dancing partner and you may get to know her over time. An outgoing and approachable attitude helps create a friendly environment.
