Meet a New Love

I am in love – and, my God, it is the greatest thing that can happen to a man. I tell you, find a woman you can fall in love with. Do it. Let yourself fall in love. If you have not done so already, you are wasting your life.
–D.H. Lawrence

Most men and women stick to one or two ways to meet members of the opposite sex. After a while, you start to meet the same people over and over again.

If you are looking to meet someone new, you need to start looking elsewhere.

Albert Einstein said the definition of insanity was “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

So, if you want different results in your love life, you are going to have to stop doing the same things over and over again. But, you may wonder, where do you start?

Well, I’ve compiled a list of 10 great places to meet members of the opposite sex. And no, a bar is not one of them. These are up to date places where you can meet real people. Some of the items are better suited for one gender or the other, but most of them will work for both men and women.

So, without further ado, let’s jump in.

The Dog Park

I think we are drawn to dogs because they are the uninhibited creatures we might be if we weren’t certain we knew better. They fight for honor at the first challenge, make love with no moral restraint, and they do not for all their marvelous instincts appear to know about death. Being such wonderfully uncomplicated beings, they need us to do their worrying.
~George Bird Evans, Troubles with Bird Dogs

Dog parks have been proliferating in recent years. There are many reasons for this. One is that people are living in homes with smaller yards and therefore their dogs cannot get the kind of exercise that a large back yard would provide. The other is the increased regulations regarding leash laws that mean that dog owners cannot let their dogs off a leash. These have made dog owners look for a place where their puppy can run free.

If you go to a dog park at the same time every day, you will get to know the other people who show up then too. Because you are basically spending 30 minutes to an hour just standing around (except for the two minutes you spend picking up the dog poo), you have plenty of time to get to know your fellow dog owners.

You will start by conversing about the various dogs in the park. This is a good starting point. But, soon, you will find other interests as well. It is not unusual for a group of dog owners who frequent the same park at the same time to have an occasional social activity like a pot luck, barbeque, or drinks at a bar. You can suggest to someone that you are interested that the two of you do something together afterwards.

You’ll have something in common with them starting out: you both love dogs. Dog people tend to be social. They also like animals and tend to care about human beings too.

Dogs are also a lot like children. You can find out how a potential spouse would treat your future children by watching how he or she interacts with their dog.

Dog people are also healthier in general. Dogs help to relieve stress. Pet dogs also lower the incidents of various kinds of maladies such as high blood pressure. So, you will have a good chance of meeting up with someone who isn’t crazy or racked by health problems.

There are an equal number of female and male dog owners in the United States which makes going to a dog park an even match for both men and women.
