One of the easiest and least expensive ways to meet singles is to spend time where other singles hang out. Yet, many singles avoid this kind of interaction, either because they've "tried it before and it didn't work," or they feel silly doing nothing while trying to look available in a public place. These are both valid points, but neither are reasons to not try out some of these places to meet singles on your own. Perhaps a change of venue or attitude will make all the difference, but without trying you'll never know. In fact, you probably wouldn't be reading this article at all if you weren't in need of new ideas to jumpstart your current efforts, as whatever it is you are doing now isn't working to your satisfaction.

We all have things we love to do in our spare time, but sometimes we lack the resources or social connections to be able to do them. Training for a marathon is often more fun with others — but what if none of your friends have a desire to get up at AM to run with you? Meetup aims to solve these problems. Some common examples include sports teams, book clubs, and social groups. Once you create an account, you can use the website to find "meetups" groups that interest you… or create your own if no one else already has.
