Dating tips from Rachel Greenwald Author of Why He Didn't Call You Back.

5 Unique Places to Find Great Guys This Summer in Your Town

  1. On Facebook: Finding great guys is all about networking through your friends, so scroll through the friends lists of your friends on Facebook and play "I Spy A Cute Guy." If you spy someone intriguing, ask your mutual friend if he's single (or check his relationship status if his profile isn't private) and ask to be introduced. Because this isn't an official online dating site, the pressure is off: you can get to know each other first as friends while eliminating internet safety worries since you have a mutual friend.
  2. On Twitter: Send a tweet Friday afternoon that you're meeting friends at your favorite pub or café, and say you're looking forward to anyone joining you for a spontaneous happy hour. Tell your "followers" to bring their friends. You're bound to meet new people, and even if they're not single, they might know someone to fix you up with later.
  3. Through Meetup.com: Meetup groups are a social way to connect with people in your town around mutual interests. If you go to www.meetup.com and search something like "Singles in Detroit who love pug dogs" or "Singles in Bangor, Maine who hike" you'll find dozens of like-minded groups who gather regularly to merge their hobbies or passions with their search for a mate.
  4. Try Speed Dating: You need a diversified portfolio of dating activities when you're single; it's all about trying something new and different because as Einstein said, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." So if you've never tried speed dating, I can tell you that not only is it fun to have ten mini-dates in one evening, but I have personally attended over 30 weddings in the past few years from clients who met through HurryDate. (Check out www.HurryDate.com for a party in your city.)
  5. Teach your own man-class: Contact your local adult education center and offer to teach a seminar geared toward men. Identify something you can do that men typically can't, and watch guys sign up in droves. One of my dating coaching clients created a cooking class called "Bachelors: Learn How to Cook 10-minutes Meals." She wasn't a great chef herself, but collected 5 super-simple recipes (mostly out of can!) and soon had 25 single men sitting in front her as she taught the 90-minute class. She reported that three men asked her out later that night, and two of them were really cute!
