The point is this: try not to involve yourself into something so completely that you send off ' I'm busy' vibes.You want to seem approachable, and hiding behind a laptop or book doesn't help!By opening yourself up and making eye contact with all of the other patrons, you are also making yourself available to anything that comes your way, which could be a recommendation for a new book to read, a compliment about something you're wearing, or maybe even a date. Someone doesn't say hi back, and another person walks through the door ten seconds later.You've lost nothing in the process, and potentially get to socialize in a lighthearted manner.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.Coffee shops are one of my personal favorites when it comes to places to meet singles.
Another idea along this same vein would be to host your own party, where each invitee brings a potluck dish and a single friend (of the opposite sex for heterosexuals or same sex for gays and lesbians).If money is an issue, think about taking a class without getting credit or look into how old you have to be to receive free classes, since many universities now offer tuition-free options for seniors.And while you want to take classes that you have a personal or professional interest in, it never hurts to take something you normally wouldn't - if only because you have a hunch the type of person you are looking to meet would take that kind of class Similar to the hobbies and special interests we all have are our political, religious and/or spiritual affiliations.For those in smaller communities where the resources may not be as comprehensive, try talking to the owners of local shops you frequent to buy hobby-related materials and ask if they know of others to speak with regarding starting a group, or if you can post notices looking for other interested participants.Another idea would be to contact national organizations overseeing smaller local chapters to see if they are planning any speaking engagements or are looking to start a chapter in your area.
Someone offhandly mentioned a murder mystery party I'd thrown in another city and how much fun it was - so I went on Meetup and asked a few local groups if they were willing to host something like this.
