The 4 Best Places to Find Love

Bars, clubs, coffee shops - you've tried them all in your search for love. But are you really likely to find Mr. or Ms. Right when you're four scotches into the night and can't muster conversation more interesting than "Come here often?"

Didn't think so.

If it's true love you seek, start looking in the right locations.

Love Locale #1: The Park

No matter your interest, you'll find a like-minded potential mate. Beg, borrow or steal a puppy for an instant conversation starter. Or "accidentally" beam a sexy sunbather with your Frisbee. Meet other fitness-minded folks jogging or hiking on the trail. Swap advice on improving your backhand at the tennis courts. Ask the cutie on the bench about the book being read or ask to borrow a section of the newspaper.

Love Locale #2: Your Friends

Your friends are your friends for a reason, which means you'll probably get along with most of their friends. Let them set you up, introduce you to their old college buddies and invite you to all their huge parties. You may meet that someone special...and they'll already have gotten a good reference check!

Love Locale #3: Online

Even if you're still reluctant to dip your toes in the online dating pool, there are still hundreds of other sites where you can meet folks in a less formal way. Social networking sites are a great tool to meet like-minded individuals or friend-of-friends. Some Web sites go the extra distance by having "recycling" programs for their great-person-but-not-for-me exes.

Love Locale #4: Class

Find a new hobby - but pick one that's likely to have a good gender balance (i.e., skip the knitting or welding classes). Look for seminars in cooking, wine tasting, home brewing or the martial arts - anything that overlaps your interests and the kind of person you're looking for. And even if you don't make a love connection, at least you learned something new.
