Help! I’m Newly Single and Don’t Know Where to Start Looking for a Date!


As we go through life, we find ourselves in and out of relationship. Sometimes we are so focused on other aspects of our lives that our love lives suffer. When the time comes and we are ready to start looking for love again, we may not know where to go or how to even start!

The most common places newly single folks in the UK start looking for love

We hope that you find them useful!

  1. Online

Online dating is probably one of the most common ways newly single people start looking for love. There is no other way that you can date that will put you in contact with potentially thousands of eligible singles, not just locally, but worldwide. Just imagine how many people you can meet all from the comfort of your own home! Online dating allows you luxuries that you can’t get through other methods of dating.

  1. Public Transportation

Before you start thinking that we are crazy, you can meet some quality people while you’re waiting for the subway or the bus. You can bond over the headlines or you can commiserate over how long you have been waiting for the bus to arrive. If you are a frequent flyer, the airport is a great place to meet someone. Where else can you meet someone, ask them out, and go on a mini-date all without having to change venues?

  1. Local Events

Whether your area is hosting some sort of carnival, parade, or any other sort of event, these public events are perfect places to find a local person who is in the market for love just like you. At these public events, you can sample some wares that local artisans create, maybe play some games and go on rides. It’s a fun way to get involved with the community while searching for your next mate.

  1. A Life Enrichment Class

You can sign up for pottery, a cooking class, a dance class, or any other kind of class and have the opportunity to fall in love with a fellow classmate. If you are in a cooking class, you can pair up with a hottie and exchange cooking techniques, favorite recipes, and maybe even phone numbers.

  1. Volunteer at Church

When the holiday’s roll around, chances are your church will be organizing some kind of charity drive or maybe even a soup kitchen for those in need. You can kill two birds with one stone when you volunteer to participate with these church charity drives — not only will you be giving back to your community, but you can put yourself in a position where you can flirt with another volunteer. Nothing brings people together and form a bond like doing something good for those in need.

One of the most important aspects of looking for love is to go about it with an open mind. An open mind will allow you to find love when you least expect it and maybe with someone who you never thought you would be interested in.
