    Times have changed over the years and it seems that most everyone now finds their next date or fling online.
    I would like to hear from people that met their next date or fling anywhere except online. In other words at the store, coffee shop, pub.
    Let's hear your stories and places please.

    Maybe I should rephrase the question? I wasn't looking for ideas on pickup places I was asking for people's experiences. Sorry if it was confusing

    I met my ex in the parking lot of a club. Her car wouldn't start so I jumped it for her then 4 of us (her friend and mine) went out to breakfast. We married 2 years later. The marriage lasted 14 years and two kids.We're still good friends and get along well.

    Met my last LTR (we've been broken up ahwile but I like the story) in a doctor's office. We chit chatted awhile, learned she had recently moved in from California, then I was called back for my appointment.
    When I came out, she must've been in with the doc.
    I walked outside to leave, saw a car with a California plate, and said "why not". Scribbled a quick note with my number on it and stuck it under her wiper blade.
    She called a couple of days later....and that lasted 7 years.

    Sorry that reply while very effective was not very respectful of your post. I have meet several woman over the years in grocery store and clothing stores. The best conversation starters are simply asking a question about a product.

    The part about go were woman are, while obvious, is over looked by so many guys it isn't funny.

    I've met my man at party at a cafe at the University.

    I meet men at dancing occasions, like parties at alternative party cafes.

    Sadly, there are less such places nowadays and I've moved to the internet.

    In college, I was typically like most in that I was looking everywhere, classes, on the walks, at meal time (I worked in the dinning hall supplying the server line) at parties and even under rocks unsuccessfuly .......... a real horn dog!

    My roommate also worked the dinning hall food court and he saw a young lady that met his fancy. While talking to me about her before starting work one night, one of the cooks overheard us and said to him that she thought that it had been her daughter that he was describing to me. Well he ended up setting up a blind date with her and asked me to go along for support. (This was his first time approaching a young lady!) He got her to bring a friend and we met them in the student lounge because it was open and very public.

    Long story short, the young lady wasn't who he thought and he was upset and wanted to leave. Now me ........ the other young lady was blond and very cute so I was not inclined to leave and made every effort to remain and talk to her. The other two were both very bored while I and her friend talked for three hours about everything under the sun. Turned out that she thought that I was the very cute one!
    When we split for the afternoon, it was because we both (roommate and myself) had to go to work that evening. I got her number before leaving and one year later, we were married and still, 50yrs later are just as in love as that first afternoon.

    @sensless I thank you for the like!

    Life can throw some pretty good curves one's way at odd times. We both knew that we were meant to be by the end of the first month. We couldn't wait after the first year for her to graduate nursing school so we got married anyway, to the schagrine of both sets of parents. We proved them both wrong and she became a successful neonatle preemie nurse.

    Meant to be... that's love.

    The parents of my man celebrated 50 years of marriage last April. They're the most beautiful couple I personally know.

    They've met at a party, I think.
