Best Places to Meet Men

Well, we are all trying to narrow down the options on the right places to meet men. But where do you meet the right men? Can you bump into your dream guy and fall in love, and live happily ever after? Well, maybe; maybe not. Read on to know!
Ok! Every woman wants the fairytale encounter with her prince charming. She wants to meet her Mr. Right, lock eyes with him, fall in love and live happily ever after. Nothing wrong with that. I mean, I would crave for such a phenomenon to occur, as well. But, after the number of times that I have met men in the absolutely perfect setting, and felt absolutely nothing for them, I came to the conclusion that may-be, place has nothing to do with it. I mean, since when did love become geographically programmed, right? But, as always, the people around me proved me wrong. Here is the result of a certain survey that I performed (amongst my friends and acquaintances) to get to know where they met their Mr. Right!

The Office
Today's woman is career oriented. If she is single, late working hours are almost natural for her to handle. Work, timings and targets are a part of her lifestyle. As such, she ends up spending way too much time in the office. Let's face the fact that offices are confined spaces where in several people (gender inconsequential) spend the majority part of their day, together. As such it is only obvious that one of the best ways to meet men would be at work. At work, you are in your element. You are efficient and subtly social. More so, you both can take breaks together, and he can always drive you home, right?

The Place of God
"Place of God" does not mean heaven. No, it means your place of worship. It is one of the best places to meet nice guys. If you meet a guy at such a place, chances of flirtation are less. While flirtation will occur, it will be mild. He will get to see the "spiritually beautiful" side to you. More so, men are not very open about their spiritual side, mostly. So, if you meet him at such a place, you are already in his comfort zone. It makes things easier for you. Another plus point being that, you both should not have a problem with the "meeting the parents" aspect of things. After all, he is a "church going man!".

The Supermarket
Supermarkets are one of the good places to meet men. They are mostly in their domestic avatar, making them more open to casual meetings. More so, he sees the more feminine side of you, the grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning side of you. Let's not forget, men like their women to be feminine. Here, he sees that side of you. More so, your friendship can blossom and flourish every time you "bang into him" at the supermarket. Smiles can turn into friendship, friendship into dating and dating into a relationship. I believe a modern-day fairytale is in the making!

The Gym
Yes, I know! At the gym you are in a terrible state. You are sweaty, your hair looks undone and you have no makeup on! But, let me remind you, he is also sweaty and has his guard down as well. You now see why a gym is one of the great places to meet guys? If you meet a guy at the gym, firstly, you can be sure that he has a great body! Secondly, he can see the real you, without the makeup and the perfect clothes. Yes, I know it sounds silly, but honestly, in the state which he sees you in, he will be zapped when he sees you remotely dressed up. More so, you both will have the same timing for coming to the gym, somewhat like a regular casual date, don't you think!

The Library
If you are a reading freak like me, then you need a man who reads. Where else will you find a readaholic other than the library. This guy will know the importance of the smell of a book. He will have his way with words and will have the ability to be romantic. He will know a lot and will be an intellectual match for you. What a wonderful way of meeting the man of your dreams, under the shadow of thousands of love stories!

The Club
I am not talking about the random clubs. I am talking about the really elite clubs. They hold events very often, and one can only find the elite out there. These clubs during such events is one of the best places to meet rich men. You don't need to pretend to be someone you are not. Simply be yourself and show him that it is not his money but his mind and heart that you are interested in. Once he believes you, I don't think there is anything stopping a lovely romantic story in the making!

So, these are the top 6 places to meet men (my friend forced be to add the last one, for a common benefit). One word of advice though. Love is like an enigma. The more you look for it, the more it may hide from you. The best way to fall in love is to allow yourself to. Once you open your heart to love, love will find you, and so will your Mr. Right! For that, you don't need to be in any specific place. He will just find you. This is where I sign off! All the best!
