Many people are on the journey to find love. Dating websites and frequenting the same clubs and bars may get you in a rut as many people opt for the known rather than the unknown. However, don’t be fooled, there are many unexpected places that you can find love. Keeping an open mind will allow you to meet people wherever you go and finding love may be easier than ever before.
Travel Whether you are an avid traveller or travel for work, you will be surprised with the amount of people you can meet. Travelling alone will allow you to meet people sitting in the seat next to you and starting a conversation is not a difficult task when you are put into this predicament. You may not always sit next to prince charming on the flight, however there is no reason why you cannot smile at that good looking passenger three rows behind you. Waiting in the boarding lounge, sitting in the plane or waiting to use the restroom, will allow you to meet people unexpectedly. Online dating apps including Tinder and Happn will also allow you to make the plunge easier as these apps allow you to match people within your proximity. Prince charming may only be several seats away.
Sporting Match Whether you are a hardcore sports fan or just tagging along with your friends, you may just meet your match at a sporting game. Having knowledge of the game you are watching will impress the opposite sex even more. However, if you do not know much about the sport or the key players, you can easily learn the ins and outs in no time thanks to a few simple tricks. Purchasing the match game sold at the game will give you information of all the players, stats and other key knowledge that will be sure to impress. If you are tech savvy, simply download a corresponding app for the sport giving you live updates and keeping you in touch with everything that is happening in the game. Knowing the game or making a valid comment will spark anyone’s attention helping you score a date.
Grocery Store Doing your weekly grocery shopping is no longer a dreaded household activity. You never know who you will meet after asking them to grab you something from the top shelf or asking their opinion on a product they have in their trolley. UK research through shopper-marketing app ‘Shopitize’ has found that 1 in 8 grocery shoppers have given their number to someone. The grocery store is a great place to meet people for those who don’t go out much and simultaneously like a more relaxed environment compared to a bar.
In The Queue Many unexpected places to find love have something in common. Whether you are buying tickets, buying a drink at the half time match break, boarding your flight or paying for your groceries, there will always be a queue of people doing the same thing. This can be the perfect opportunity to begin a conversation with the person behind you, which may lead to something more. However, many people may not take this opportunity due to their fear of rejection. Overcome your fear with mental discipline and visualise success with confidence and control. People are usually polite and will drop subtle hints if they are not interested rather than be arrogant and rude. Always remember that you will never know the outcome unless you try. The worst thing that can happen is that they are not interested or the best thing that can happen is that you exchange numbers.
Always keep an open mind and be confident in any situation and environment you are in and remember you don’t have anything to lose. The only thing you will have is regret if you do not take the time to chat and make conversation with people that you meet in the most unexpected places. It is important to remember that you can find love anywhere. You will be surprised who you can meet in the places you frequent on a regular basis. Don’t ever take those places for granted as you may meet the love of your life right under your nose.
