We're not going to say meeting your next girlfriend at a bar is impossible, because it's not. But, if you keep hitting up the same haunt night after night and it yields no results, or regularly ends in a one-night-stand, your stomping grounds might be to blame.
Think outside of the tired-and-true box. Force yourself beyond your comfort zone. Say “YOLO” and sign up for online dating. Swallow your pride, and ask your friends to set you up with a few eligible bachelorettes. Spend time in bookstores, take a class or join a group to meet women with similar interests.
Putting yourself out there is the key element here. A bar is the second worst place to meet a woman, after your couch.
