Ok i'm single again as of 2 weeks. The ex is already dating someone new. I'm suddenly in a rush to forget about her. I haven't tried to meet a girl in 4 years so I wanted some good tips. I'm not looking for tips to get one night stands, but tips to get a new girlfriend.

1) I hear grocery stores are great places to meet girls....HOW? What phrases or approaches have you used to meet a girl at a grocery store? How about a check out girl...how is that possible?

2) Bookstore - What is the best method for meeting girls at a borders...geez.

3) Clubs - If i must...Is there a good opening line or something that works a lot? I remember from Blast from the Past "I lost my congressional medal of honor could you help me find it"...I dont' think i could pull that off. Is the simple "How you doin?" the best way to go? How about a group of two or three girls...how does that work?

4)ONLINE dating??? Does anyone do this and is it for real? No clue on this one.


I know this sounds rudimentary, but I've been moving around alot and I don't have a group of friends here that I can meet people through...that's how i usually meet the ladies. Thanks in advance for the tips.

really, i wish i could give advice. but i cant. ive actually approached maybe 2-3 girls in my life.

i rarely ever have approached women because so many men are fucking idiots. so i figure they'll be like.."whatever motherfucker". so i just dont care to. some how, that comes off as confidence and turns the tables. weird.

It seems like pickup lines etc only really work on women you'd be better off avoiding anyway. But I usually start with a casual hello and then some situationally relevant chit-chat.

You just got out of a long serious relationship... Why in fuck's name would you want another girlfriend this soon? Go hang out with friends, splurge on something, do some of the things you weren't able to do when you were tied down.

that makes sense, and I'm that kind of person whenever i'm on an airplane. I'm great at airplane situations because you're stuck next to someone and once you say hi they don't have many options but to start talking...if i see a cutie working at the grocery store line can I really just say 'what are you doing for dinner tonight"? prob not.

QFT. Enjoy the freedom for a while. It's been two weeks. Just because she's dating someone does not mean she's more desirable or that she's moved on. It means she's a codependent and can't stand to be with herself so she needs to torture other people with her personality. Look @ the breakup as a "get out of jail free" card & celebrate it. :thu

I've never been one to really spit game at a supermarket, but they say that in a field of shopping and retail, a single woman is more likely to be open to an approach. It should always be about confidence and not arrogance. Sometimes the most simplistic approach will open the door and then you can use your wit and charm to further improve your chances.

*Or, if you're hung like a champ...just whip it out and say, "Ta-Daw. This magic stick will erase all your vibration needs."

seriously man. Too soon to get a girlfriend. Getting a replacement just for the sake of having a replacement won't end up well.

It's hard to really tell someone how to get a girlfriend; That kind of stuff just happens on its own. People on here can give you advice on how to approach and talk to a girl, but it all depends on who you are. I'm shy as hell and am usually never the one to initiate conversation with someone; it's just who I am. If I try to be someone different, I become uncomfortable because its just not me, and it shows. I guess it's all about confidence, but it also depends on who you are.

But to me completely honest, you'll probably find your next "girlfriend" when you arent even looking for her. Just my opinion though.

Best advice so far. As cliche as it sounds, just be yourself and you'll find someone who is a much better match.

If you are out somewhere and there is a chick you find cute make eye contact and if you notice a spark of interest continue the eye contact and she will eventually come over to you and say hi. That way we feel like we are in control and don't get that creepy pick up vibe.

But for the record I agree with the being single for awhile thing. Don't people just date anymore? Why is it that it is either single or in a relationship, what happened to dating and playing the field?

I'm okay with 'dating'...but I guess I didn't want to be interpreted as looking for one night stands..I'm not going to get serious with some girl I don't have chemistry with JUST to have a girlfriend....but if I meet someone i really like then why not be committed..

I think you are in the minority of girls who would walk over to a guy simply because you made eye contact. Maybe if you both smile at each other...but then I'd go to her anyway..

I meant that you should date for awhile, different girls until you find the one you are interested in. Before jumping in. When I divorced my husband I wouldn't even allow myself to be in a relationship for a year. I dated but nothing serious. I needed to learn to be on my own for awhile, although my year has now turned into 5. lol.

Actually there are alot of strong women out there these days that will start the conversation. But alot of men are turned off by strong women I have found. Just be yourself, if your in a music store ask the girl what she is buying or give her some music tips, if your in a book store do the same. I have been approached in the grocery store but it usually creeps me out a little so I have no advice on that one.

Yes I have done the online dating thing, be careful, there are alot of weirdos out there.

be honest

My ex was extremely nutz with issues..she acted strong and tough to hide how uncomfortable she was in her own skin. She was very into treating a relationship like a business trasaction...everything was about if it was equal or who gave more or did more. These are things I do NOT like or want. We had everything in common as far as music/movies/hobbies, but coudn't communicate for shit. So I'm going to care less about things in common and focus on finding someone where everything comes easily and feels right..we don't have to do everything the same or together, but we must want the other person to succeed and be happy more than ourselves.

Plus, she was 3 inches taller than me...no way i'd ever date someone taller than me again. I guess i'm okay with strong personalities as long as they can still be a girl and depend on someone else for things.., but I'm more attracted to the traditional girl who is confident in herself but doesn't have to show the world.

So I'm going to care less about things in common and focus on finding someone where everything comes easily and feels right..we don't have to do everything the same or together, but we must want the other person to succeed and be happy more than ourselves.


ok easy.....
if you want to be in a relationship that feels "easy" then u are going to have to wait for the woman to find you.
If you do the hunting now, it will always feel "forced"...

make sense?

Haha, are you being sarcastic? Well, your style depends on your body type and disposition in life. Definitely no more gray sweat-colored shirts, though. Whatever that shit's called.



UHH.... Erik I was serious about my proposal in your cooking thread?!

Erik will be staying with me in early November. You guys should hook up then. Maybe we can go to a show.

Also, how old are you? If you're over 30, I think you gotta start dressing in nicer, more mature clothing. And better shoes. The great thing about being older is that you get to dress more nicely, neh?

Man, I hope you guys will be this helpful when I want to find a boyfriend too!

You just got out of a long serious relationship... Why in fuck's name would you want another girlfriend this soon? Go hang out with friends, splurge on something, do some of the things you weren't able to do when you were tied down.

The truth. Seriously, take some time off. You are going to regret it and so will the next girl you try to date. In all honesty, unless you were looking to get out for quite some time, you are probably not ready yet.

OK find..but I'm allowed to still approach girls and go on dates, correct? If so, then wouldn't i still be 'hunting'? Or would i be sharpening my craft?

Dating is exactly the same as relationship seeking...the only difference would be if you met a great girl and you rejected the possibility of a relationship.

If i wait for her to find me then that indicates i go out and drink at bars and hang out in bookstores and such..and ignore all women and that seems silly...

Alright. Here's the thing that I've discovered that works the best. When you first meet a woman, talk to her like you've known her all your life. Don't be afraid to joke around and DO NOT be timid. If you have self-confidence issues, women can sense that shit right away. And don't kiss their asses right away. Most sane women don't like guys who are all up on them 24/7. Sounds like games, but they're just little things to get you in the door. Oh and smile a lot when you're talking to them. But not a creepy smile. Practice in mirror. Lol.

As far as WHERE to meet women. I'd say no to the bar scene. I think the odds of finding something that can lead to anything meaningful are very low. If you're looking for some ass then that's the way to go. But you said you aren't, so I would avoid bars and clubs. You said you did your best when you met women through friends, so make some new friends where you live. Then you have the pipeline all over again.

I've never been the online dating type, but I thought I'd give it a try back in August. I was tired of meeting women the conventional way because it was such a craps shoot. I actually met the girl I'm dating now through eharmony. I never thought I would "resort" to that, but it's not really anything bad. It actually was a good way to sift through all the women who I had nothing in common with. I'm hitting it off really well with this one, so I'm glad I signed up for that. If you go through a web site, you still have to have a personality at some point. It's just a screening process, really.

Oh. If you think she's a little shy then wait until the 2nd date to pull out your penis. That's all.

Honestly, this sounds very similar to my last relationship before I met my wife. We hung on for an entire year though before giving up, as opposed to 6 months. I took about 4 months off from dating after we broke up. And I have to tell you, those 4 months were some of the best of my life. The perfect remedy to all of this is to just go out there and not concern yourself with getting locked into another long term relationship right now. Reconnect with friends and family, hang out with friends on the weekend, travel, etc. Find yourself and make sure you know what it is you need for a relationship to fully last. Use the last relationship as a learning experience and build on that.

Let the dating thing come back to you naturally. It sounds like you have been out of the game for quite some time. Maybe you should consider using the whole online dating thing to re-establish yourself. It helps to build up confidence that you will be able to date in today's world. After you have done that (and if you decide you do not want to go that route), then you should be at least adequately prepared to hit the dating scene full force.

Oh, and make sure that you listen to the Killers' Human song on repeat. That will help immensely.

yeah, my friend did last night. You have to realize though, I live in Utah and we only have one fully nude strip club and it's like way north of my hood so we had to settle for pasties and g-strings last night. I still dont know where my friend is that kissed the stripper. He got got kicked out of the second bar we went to and he wouldn't get in my car. His phones dead right now and he had work at like eight. Which means he's either at the strippers house, in jail, dead, or at work. I think he walked home, which is like 20 miles from where we were.

I like this thread. You guys are helping me be a better man.

I'm not going to try to tell you that I'm different from all the rest.

I've been subject to the same de-structure of desire and I've felt the same effects;

I'm a hetero-sexist tragedy. And potential rapists all are we.

But don't tell me this is natural. This is nurturing. And there's a difference between sexism and sexuality.

I had different desires prior to my role-remodelling. And at six years of age you don't challenge their claims. You become the same. (Or withdraw from the game and hang your head in shame).

I think that's exactly what I did. I tried to sever the connections between me and them.

I fought against their further attempts to convince a kid that birthright can bestow the power to yield the subordination of women and do you know what patricentricity means?

I found out just a couple of days/months/years/minutes ago. It means male values uber alles and hey!

Whaddaya know... sex has been distorted and vilified. I'm scared of my attraction to body types.

the only pickup lines that have ever worked on me have been the kind that were so ridiculously ridiculous i was just impressed they managed to get that out there. and in any case they never really worked in the long run.


i only ever end up talking to guys if i immediately assess them as intelligent or amusing. haha no pressure. basically im saying dont open up the conversation being cliche or a sleeze, start by saying hello, and then talk about something of interest. ive randomly ended up in hour long conversations with people because they mentioned something obscure that we were both interested in. its easiest with music seriously, if a cute rocker chick is wearing some awesome shirt for a band your also into, well youre fucking in man.

and as for the trying to pick up girls at work, i would advise against that four square. if i am ringing up a guy that i think is cute then I WILL flirt with him, usually at work im not in any kind of mood to deal with lurker douches.

the only pickup lines that have ever worked on me have been the kind that were so ridiculously ridiculous i was just impressed they managed to get that out there. and in any case they never really worked in the long run.


i only ever end up talking to guys if i immediately assess them as intelligent or amusing. haha no pressure. basically im saying dont open up the conversation being cliche or a sleeze, start by saying hello, and then talk about something of interest. ive randomly ended up in hour long conversations with people because they mentioned something obscure that we were both interested in. its easiest with music seriously, if a cute rocker chick is wearing some awesome shirt for a band your also into, well youre fucking in man.

and as for the trying to pick up girls at work, i would advise against that four square. if i am ringing up a guy that i think is cute then I WILL flirt with him, usually at work im not in any kind of mood to deal with lurker douches.


This is true on all points. Don't use "lines". Just talk to them like you've known them for years. If you're comfortable then they'll likely be more comfortable.

And is Astrid your real name? The only Astrid I know is my 2-year old niece. I love that name.

Personally, i'm bitter. I got out of a 4 year relationship and have almost zero interest in pursuing another. I started using the fight club mantra "We're a generation of men raised by women. I'm wondering if another woman is really the answer we need."

Something about revelling in the freedom now. i would not have had the time I had at Coachella this year had I not been alone. i would not have gone to europe this year had I still been with my ex. I love the freedom.

Watch the amazing race. I feel sorry for people in relationships. That's how I know i'm bitter. I figure at this point alone is perfect, work out my issues, insecurities, appeance, priorities in life and once i've figured all that shit out then maybe i'll let someone fall into my lap.

I think this all rings very true...but you still DATE don't you? Or do you avoid girls all together? I am definitely planning on perfecting my style, body, and attitude along with any mental issues I may or may not be aware of at this point. I'm focusing on passing the cpa exam then going to get an mba...i bet at college i'd find the right girl! and younger too...i'd love some girl 6-8 years younger.

Christ, well here we go. Umm no. I don't. I don't date currently. I have not been on a date in the last year since the relationship ended. It's pretty much entirely by choice. I'm awkward about it, i'm self conscious about myself in many ways. I need a lot of work. I have turned all of my insecurities into jokes so I don't take a lot of serious things in my life as serious as I need to. I'm 'a fucking wreck at the moment I guess but i'm numb to it all.

I'm 33 but feel like i'm oh about 22. Dr. Drew would chalk some of this up to my marijuana use. I'm codependant as well. It's dangerous. I think some of this comes off as well in my message board personality. I really just recently started looking into this and actually admitting these things to myself so it's a little weird. I'm starting to learn that most of my issues stem from the insecurities maybe. I dunno, like I said i'm barely at the tip of the old iceburg.

I was the same way when my ex husband left. Alot of it had to do with the way he talked to me while married. Nothing was ever good enough, nothing I did was right, everything I thought was wrong and I was stupid for having certain emotions according to him. So after he left I had very little self esteem and didn't even want to go out in the dating world. It took me awhile to get past that and I still have my moments. But I have known girls thinner and prettier who now have lower self esteem then I do. So I think everyone has some issues with this at times. If not then there is something wrong with them, not us. lol

Well, on both points...stop the drug use!!! this will only keep you in the rut you're in forever.....let me say that again...FOR-EV-ER.

I think if we belive that we are awesome and you truly do then it wont matter who rejects you or whatever they say can't bring you down. That's when you become IRON MAN. If you approach a girl in a positive easygoing way and she says you aren't cute enough or don't make enough money then you can walk away happy and not shattered.

drug use??? I smoke the occasional pot (ok a little more occasionally then I use to but still). And I wouldn't go straight to awesome but I do know who I am and what I have to offer in a relationship. I don't approach many girls but if I approached a guy and he thought I wasn't cute enough or make enough money I would tell him to go fuck himself in the nicest possible way. But that is just me. I am much happier in my own skin than I was a few years back.

i usually get whore/slut types at bars and parties, which i dont mind at all, but i really want something deeper, so im not much help at all. i know though some girls in class, i just feel like once they see my facebook or talk to some people they are going to be completely turned off to any relationship with me lol.

then again ive never tried for something deeper in a long time, and when i do i have success its just i get completely turned off to the idea of being in a relationship about 3 weeks in. so basically im all confused and shit.

Listen bro. As far as just walking right up to a chick walking down the street and stopping her dead in her tracks with some one-liner, that will never work for you. It hardly works at all so quit trying to wrap your head around it.

What you need is the right surroundings and the right attitude.

You also will find more girls when you are not exactly looking for girls. You should concentrate on doing something in your own life that will benefit you, and the girls will see that and be attracted to it. Girls love ambition and they also love guys who can express themselves thru art.

I will also say that grocery stores are great places to meet girls, but not your local fucking Food City or Ralph's. Go to a Trader Joe's or a Sprouts to find more organic hottie little cuties. They are always there and they are of a high caliber.

I think you are just upset that you girl moved on so fast, they always do that. Start ignoring her and only concentrate on yourself. Fight all urges to send any type of communication...don't text even if you think its for something harmless or to "just see how your doing". Make her guess at what you have been up to and eventually you will get to the point where you are not doing good things in spite of her anymore, you are only doing them for yourself.

so, yeah, don't try to pick up on people who are working retail unless they seem to show interest first. Remember, they're WORKING and not necessarily looking for someone at the moment. If they seem interested, by all means do it, but don't just go to retail or grocery stores expecting to meet someone.

When I worked at Borders, I was getting numbers at least semi-regularly. Apparently girls like a guy who knows books, is cynical and can both walk and talk at the same time. I think that's a fairly rare find nowadays.
