The title of the thread says it all. - Clubs and bars are a no go. I'll go to those places if I wanna dance or drink, but definitely not to meet anybody for anything serious. It's funny, because whenever we go to these places, my straight guy friends just stand around looking at the girls but not actually doing anything about it. The last time we went, I was the only one who struck up a conversation with a member of the opposite sex. I guess it's easier not to be nervous if you don't want anything from them. - Bookstores seemed like a good place, but the guys there tend to be a little too cultured / old. Plus I had a weird experience at the local Barnes and Noble last time I was there. - The Gym. I wish. This seems like the type of place where I could go to meet someone. Not that I've ever cruised anybody at a gym before, but the one I go to now has nothing to offer as far as guys are concerned. Most of them are out of my age range and the ones that aren't I don't find attractive. - Upscale malls. No good unless you're looking for a retail queen. Any other suggestions? Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough.
