But in a big city like New York, there are thousands of women just waiting to be met. Unfortunately, all it takes is an hour-long commute on the G train to ruin a potential relationship.
Here are five places within walking distance where you’ll be able to meet (and eventually take home!) the highest quality women.
1) Dog Parks
If you’ve been to a dog park, then you’ve undoubtedly noticed the beautiful women accompanied by their smaller, furrier companions.
Now, there are two possible scenarios that can play out here:
If you own a dog, you’ve got it made.
Just take your dog for a walk to the dog park and let your dog do all of the work for you!
Dogs are inherently social creatures, so chances are your dog will be interacting with at least one dog who belongs to a beautiful woman.
When this happens, walk up to her and strike up a conversation.
It’s that easy.
You could compliment the woman, but a more original approach would be to compliment her dog.
This woman is probably used to receiving compliments directed at her, so by complimenting her dog first, you’re standing out from the crowd.
You can also use your own dog as “bait,” if he’s particularly cute, playful, or stately. If you have a tennis ball, you can throw it close to a cute girl to get your dog over near her, and “happen” into a conversation with her.
As David has mentioned before, approaching women has a lot to do with the situation, and having a dog allows you to capitalize on your situation.
If you don’t own a dog, don’t panic — you can still work this angle.
If you have any friends with dogs, see if you can “borrow” their dog one weekend!
Not only will you be doing your friend a favor, but it makes a great story when you do actually meet women at the dog park.
And if your apartment is nowhere near a dog park, just walk your dog to the nearest regular park.
On the way, look for women who are jogging or aren’t in a rush. They might stop what they’re doing to pet your pooch — that’s your chance.
2) Grocery Stores
The grocery store is one of the most underrated places to meet women.
Food is a very personal subject for most people, so what makes meeting women at grocery stores so interesting is that you can seek out different “types” of women depending on where you are in the store.
For example, a woman shopping in the “organic” section probably has different tastes than a woman pushing a cart filled with two buck chuck.
So you’ve found a woman you want to approach…
When it comes to approaching women, the grocery store is not always the friendliest place.
People are in there not because they want to be, but because they have to be.
They’re looking at lists, thinking about what else they have to get, and are probably annoyed by all the people they’ve had to push out of their way just to get some kale.
Knowing this information is half the battle.
When you approach someone in a grocery store, look for a woman who’s reaching for an item on a high shelf.
This is your chance to help her! Then you can start up a conversation.
Another tactic would be to take a young relative — such as a niece or nephew — grocery shopping with you.
Have your relative run over to the woman of your choice and pretend to grab something. Then you can walk over and start up a conversation.
If you live within a mile of 20 different grocery stores, it’s not practical for you to meet women in all of them.
As a general rule, you’re most likely to find women who take care of themselves and care enough to know a lot about nutrition in grocery stores that offer lots of health-conscious options.
Scout out stores like Whole Foods first, and if you don’t have any luck there, then move on to your other options.
3) Thrift Stores and Boutiques
I don’t have to tell you that women love shopping.
So if you walk into a thrift store or small boutique, chances are you’ll find women in an open, comfortable state of mind.
The struggle with meeting women in thrift stores and boutiques isn’t that women aren’t willing to be met — it’s that men are afraid of these places.
Well, I’m here to tell you that not only shouldn’t you be afraid, but you should take advantage of this!
Walk into a thrift store or boutique, and I’m betting you’ll be the only guy in there.
This puts you in a very favorable position.
If shopping completely turns you off, don’t worry — you don’t actually have to do any shopping.
The key is to approach a woman who’s alone.
Women in groups will not be receptive to one man’s advances.
Begin by browsing the same rack of clothing as a woman who catches your eye.
Get closer and closer to her, then “accidentally” bump into her. Explain that you’re “shopping for your sister” and ask for her opinion on a random piece of clothing.
Women love being asked their opinion when it comes to topics they’re interested in.
If you feel a spark, ask her out!
You have to finish the conversation by making plans with her, or else you might be put in the awkward position of actually buying that expensive shirt for your “sister.”
And just like grocery stores, thrift stores and boutiques offer you different “types” of women.
So before you go “shopping,” ask yourself:
“Am I the kind of guy who’s interested in dating women who shop in thrift stores, or do I like women who shop in higher-end boutiques?”
The answer to this question will direct you where to go.
4) Museums and Art Galleries
If you’re looking for beautiful, intelligent women who have style and taste, then look no further than museums and art galleries.
You’re probably not too surprised by this, but it’s one thing to say, “I can meet women at a museum.”
It’s another thing entirely to go out and actually do it.
Women who frequent museums and art galleries arenotoriously difficult to approach.
If they’re alone, they might just want to think and take in the sights and sounds…
Or they could be wishing you’d walk up to them!
It’s hard to tell, but it’s not impossible.
Here are three questions you should ask yourself before approaching a woman at a museum or gallery:
1) Is she looking at a specific piece?
If you catch her standing and staring at the same piece of art for longer than 30 seconds, chances are she has some thoughts on it that she just might want to share.
