If there was one thing that I always get asked by women, it’s “Where can I go to meet single men that are in their 30’s or 40’s?”
These days we all know what that going online is a great way to meet men, but where else can a girl find a good man? Today we’re giving you 33 places of the best places to find your man.
A few quick tips before you had out the door:
1. Be Mindful Of Intention
Set yourself up for success before you even leave the house by setting an intention to focus on the positive.
This maybe a huge shift if you’re used to complaining that there are no good men anywhere. As you become more positive and proactive you’ll start to notice that there are attractive men every where you go.
2. Best Foot Forward
Find out what makes you feel great, vibrant, pulled together or sexy and dress the part.
No, you do not have to be out in a dress and high heels if that isn’t your thing!
Just make sure that you are leaving the house looking as good as you feel. Sometimes it works the opposite, and putting a little bit of effort into your appearance can actually be a great mood booster!
When you’re confident in your appearance it gives you the confidence to flirt with that cute guy over wanting to hide because you’re in your old stretched out yoga pants and ponytail. No regrets!
3. Be Approachable
Men need strong clues that you are interested and are much more likely to approach you if you are approachable.
Its really just a matter of putting away the smart phone, making eye contact and smiling.
