Social media has opened wonderful doors of connection, so, don’t be afraid to look up a single high school friend and even consider attending your next reunion or class event.
Use Linked In to casually say hi to interesting men you’ve met at events.
You will find out soon enough if they are married or committed, so, for now, just be friendly and see what happens.
Let single girlfriends know that you are actively looking for a relationship – maybe they know someone who is perfect for you!
In my recent interview with dating coach, David Wygant, he suggested that men are often the ones who lack confidence and suffer from fear of rejection.

Another place to meet interesting men is the good old standby, the coffee shop. Sometimes just asking whether the chocolate muffins are any good is enough to start a great conversation. You’re not looking for the love of your life (although it would be nice to find him).
Many men come in every day to get their cup of chai or latte. Start a casual conversation with the man standing in line and smile! At this point, you’re just looking to make a friendly connection.
After school and university – both moveable feasts of friend-making opportunities – men in particular often forget how to make close buddies.
If Wiith does manage to attract users and take on some of Meetups’ 20 million-plus fan base, it could prove a popular choice for business travellers keen to find someone to share an evening meal with, and city newbies hoping to track down a running partner within hours of unpacking their trainers.
As for me, I'm hoping that some of those people sign up in the next 24 hours and make Youcef a proper offer...
There’s Skout, which brands itself as more of a friend app but has morphed into more of a dating landscape.
Peoplehunt exists, too, although it is now mainly a tool for finding others who might be able to help you with something (language exchange classes are popular on the format).
