Even worse, they probably told you that you just need to smile more or go to church to meet the right guy.

Am I right?

Yeah, I completely understand.

I was a singleton myself for all of my twenties.

I get it.

However, I am here to help.

No, I’m not going to tell you to join a bible study (that’s between you and God) or tell you to spend more time at the bar. (I do not want you to become an alcoholic on my watch!) Although people are well-meaning when they suggest it, it just irritates the crap out of a single girl when the odds are against her.

I’ve been there.

I’ve done that, and I understand.

Plus, I swore that should I ever be able to give back, I would.

Single Girls: I have answers. I even have a Top 5!

 

Suggestion Number 5

Fresh meat in a small town always gets noticed! (Please don’t be offended by being called meat. It’s a figure of speech. Personally, I love meat.)

Get out there and be your own smorgasbord

Go to a small town street dance or bowling alley. (You know, places that involve adult beverages.)

This is where a lot of your small town good guys go to hang out with friends on the weekend.

They’re the kind that don’t go to dance bars to meet girls, but with a little liquid courage, they’re more liking to introduce themselves.

 

Suggestion Number 4

There’s nothing wrong with working, or merely scouring, at Menard’s, Sears, or Bass Pro Shop.

These places are men magnets.

The numbers are always in your favor at hardware stores.

Sure, you might think that only married guys go there, but single men are all about having grills, camo, and light bulbs. (The bonus for you: you can pick up cheap seasonal decorations and men while you’re there!)

 

Suggestion Number 3

Hooters. Yes, I said it.

Looks like a fun pickup place to me.
Gimme Hooters!

I know that some women are completely appalled by short shorts and slutty tank tops, but people, the numbers don’t lie.

Friday Happy Hour is wall-to-wall males with money to spend. It’s men as far as the eye can see.

No other women are cutting in on your territory there.

Not a guy in the place thinks they’re going home with a waitress, but they think they might have a chance with you…or not!

(You slut. lol.)

 

Suggestion Number 2

Grab your t-shirt, jeans, and coozie so you can hit a sporting event, or at least the pregame tailgating!

Where else would all the men be hiding but at an event where there’s sports and beer?

And as I mentioned earlier, beer means guts on his part.

Nothing wrong with: “Oh, I forgot my coozie. Do any of you boys have an extra?” or “Wow! Those wings sure smell good!

If you need to, don’t be afraid to taunt them a little with a, “I can’t believe you’re wearing that shirt. Do you really think they even have a prayer against my team?” Nothing like a little banter to get the relationship started.

Do what you gotta do!

Finally, the one you’ve all been waiting for. It’s a two-fer.

 

Suggestion Number 1

Not only do you get an education, but you could get a man!

Try going to some college classes.

You’ll better yourself, and there’s nothing wrong with a “Hey, I missed what he said. Is that paper due Wednesday or Thursday?” or “Next time, I will remember to bring double the caffeine!

Small talk is the road to dating, my friends. Don’t underestimate it!

There you go. There are 5 places to start the man hunt. If you’re cranky, depressed, or not showered, I can’t make any promises that they’ll work, but I can tell you that you’ll have a great time whether you meet a man, or not!

Happy hunting, girls!
