Be very careful to avoid the freshmen hangout or else you will be surrounding yourself with youngsters and frat boys! A lot of men love meat and are passionate about their steaks.If you share this love of beef, why not take a seat at the bar or community table to open up your chances of starting a conversation.If it doesn’t work out, at least you were able to help someone out. Even if there are no single men in the group, you could meet new female friends that have some interesting candidates. The common belief is that all single men at weddings just want to get laid, but that’s not always the case.Some of them are perfect gentlemen who want to find a relationship that could eventually land them in their own dream wedding. Doing laundry is hardly exciting, but if you have a cutie that visits the same mat as you, it could be the perfect place to start chatting with him.While you’re admiring a particular piece, why not strike up a discussion with the single gentlemen beside you? Meeting someone over a donated pint of blood might seem strange.But if he’s caring enough to give to someone he’s never met, then he might be worth sharing some coffee with. A shared interest in vintage wines and specialty brews makes for a great conversation starter. If you like to run, why not get fit and meet new people at the same time?It’s a perfect place to push yourself to do something new and awesome, and possibly meet a cute support system while you’re at it. If you meet a man here, you know you’re going to have very similar beliefs and moral grounding.Not to mention you will see them at least once a week. While we’ve all heard the expression ‘don’t mix business with pleasure’, the office can be where we spend the most of our time.
Amanda Cox is English-Canadian, lives in Paris, and has literally written the blog on this subject, 'How to date a Frenchman.' Felicia Craddock is a writer and translator from London who has lived in Paris since 2011. "Lay it all out on a platter for a Frenchman and he will get bored", says Cox. If you meet someone at the same company as you, they are probably on the same intellectual level, and you’ll definitely share some things in common.If your office is too small or thrives on drama, I would steer clear unless you find a diamond in the rough.Now the debate is still out whether there is just less of these men available in general, or if they are just harder to track down.As technology devours every corner of our social lives, there seem to be fewer opportunities to connect with people in real time, face to face.
