Week after week you talk with your friends about trying a new restaurant or bar to meet other singles. But what happens…you and your friends end up at the same spot with the same atmosphere and nothing changes. You don’t meet any other single people and you go home disappointed. Yes, we are creatures of habit. Yes, comfort and a sense of security is important to us. However, if you keep doing the same thing then what change will happen in your dating life? And your response to me is, “Help! Where do I go to meet singles?” Well, I have a dating tip for you…Mix it Up!! After all, variety is the spice of life. Then you ask, “How do I mix it up to find fun, intelligent, attractive singles?” It can be as simple as asking yourself what hobbies, interests, activities, or organizations do you enjoy. It may be a meetup group to network with other professionals; or joining a cooking or photography class; getting involved with a local charity or nonprofit organization for volunteer work; or for the more active a kickball or volleyball league. I challenge you to do some research in your area and you will find an existing group or event that is of interest. If you aren’t ready for the overwhelming social scene you can still meet singles online or in a one on one setting. With the numerous online dating sites and matchmaking services there is variety to see what is a good fit for you. Again, all you have to do is Mix it Up to put yourself out there and mingle with other singles. The great thing is that you will already be doing an activity or attending an event or taking action in something that is meaningful and enjoyable to you. It makes mingling with other singles a lot easier to do. It allows us to have the comfort and security we desire while taking a risk. Plus, now you have the icebreaker you’ve been searching for to strike up a conversation with someone who has caught your eye.

Mix it Up and Enjoy the Dating Experience!
