Your couch keeps you comfortable. That’s kind of the essence, form, and function of it, right? However, comfort is the antithesis of what it takes to get you up and out and socializing and dating. The line “Life starts outside your comfort zone” is totally true.
If you enjoy sports, attend sporting events. If you enjoy the arts, attend cultural events. Strike up conversations with individuals in ticket lines, coffee lines, grocery store lines, any lines! (I got hit on in line for the bathroom once. It was a little odd. That line might be better for making friends than finding dates. Just saying.) Where to go and how to hunt is one of the first things I cover with my coaching clients when they’re first getting started with me.
A current client of mine loves the bookstore as the place to scope out potential singles. She likes to see what people are reading as a view to what makes them tick. I recently asked one client, “What type of books do you like to read? What’s your genre?” Whatever your answer is – that’s the first aisle in the book store you should be camping out in.
