Self-Improvement Clubs : Hypnosis Groups, Holistic Healing Groups, NLP Groups, Psychology, Meditation. You could meet some interesting people who are conscious of where they’re going in life.
The downside is that all people won’t be of your age. : If you’ve never couch-surfed, you may wanna try it.
Now, of course you have to know how to talk to people, have a little fun, exchange contact information and take it from there.

Waiting for my phone to beep, I’ve looked at it 6 times in the last 10 minutes.... I think I felt a good connection, hope the feeling was mutual?
That means they expect people to come and introduce themselves. Just don’t stay too much on the professional side of the conversation. If you go to a seminar about your subject of interest, how easier can it get to make new friends?
You can be a little easy going and show clearly that you can be fun too. You just met the people you want the most: People with shared interests.
But still, you can always meet at least two to five friends, just through an NLP Group. Singles Clubs and Events and Speed Dating : These are fun, especially if you go with a friend or a female friend. I never did but heard great feedback on how interesting it is.
Public Speaking Clubs (like Toastmasters) Do you want to learn public speaking? Just get there and talk to people and make it clear that you don’t only want to meet a girls for dating. What I did try is to contact local couchsurfers and asked them questions about the site and how did they find the experience.
If you want to meet new people at bars, go to busy bars where the music is not too loud.
If you put yourself in a busy area, people are going to be all around you. Personally, I go to bars because my social life gets stimulated in there.
And also, it gives me a chance to introduce my friends to each other which is very important.
Book Clubs and Book Stores : Never tried a book club but I met a few female friends in bookstores. She was into self improvement so we hit it off pretty quick. Chances are, you’ll meet their close friends and some family.
You can’t afford to waste your time in a class where you can’t meet friends. Facebook : Of course, you have to know how to do it properly, or else, you’ll waste a huge amount of time.
