The shifting leaves and cool breezes of autumn signify a change in the air. Why not take inspiration from that and change up your dating routine as well?
Fall brings a host of new opportunities to meet people. Among them:
Many bowling and recreation centers have added singles leagues to their fall calendars. These types of leagues generally take in all levels of bowling expertise; so don’t be shy if the highest you’ve ever thrown doesn’t even break the 100 mark. The purpose is to mingle and enjoy!
Learn Something New
School starts up again in summer, and many universities and community centers have new classes to choose from. The level of class you take can be as light or heavy as you desire. Whatever you choose, make sure it matches your true passion or is at least something you’ve always wanted to learn about. That way when you meet someone cute you’ll both have one thing already in common. Study a new language, take part in a cooking class, brush up on your computer skills, or engage in your creative side.
The advent of fall seems to refocus people’s energies on those in need. Call up your local volunteer organization, church, or community center for more information. There are also several national organizations with additional information on their web pages. Build houses, encourage literacy, or help ensure the homeless have food and clothing for the colder months ahead.
Become involved with registering voters or stuff envelopes for your favorite candidate. If you’re light on knowledge when it comes to the issues, what better way to become a more informed citizen? You may meet someone perfect for you while you support your beliefs.
Some book groups take the summer off and then start up again in fall. Call your local bookstore or library to see which groups might need a few new people. The website MeetUp is another way to find out what’s going on in your area. There are groups everywhere talking about mysteries, chick lit, literature, or great nonfiction. Pick your passion – you’re bound to find a group that’s looking for you to join.
Religious Singles Groups
Many church and religious groups start new classes and sermons in the fall. The next time you go to church, ask about their singles activities. Meeting someone that shares your faith goes a long way toward compatibility.
As the cool air rushes in it becomes more popular to sit and enjoy the paper and a latte on weekends. So pop into the nearest java joint and see who might be hanging around.
