If you are a single man looking for love, then I am sure you are quite familiar with online dating. And, while many of these dating platforms are enticing, once you log on the virtual world can seem quite hostile. For instance, after you create a profile that includes some great content and amazing pics, you have to scroll through hundreds of profiles hoping to search for the one. If you’re lucky you might meet a really great woman, go out on a few amazing dates, and live happily ever after. However, in most instances after messaging a dozen or so women, you wait for a response that never comes.
So, what’s the solution? If you’re a single man who is sick of online dating, dating apps and virtual hookups, here are 3 ways to meet a woman offline:
1) Make a list:
Before you go out there to meet a woman offline make a list. It is important to have a clear idea of the type of woman you want to meet. You can do this by first listing all the qualities you are searching for in a woman. And, if possible, keep your list short. Keep it to no more than ten if possible.
Not every woman will have everything on your list. However, by keeping your list short you’ll be more likely to find a woman who has what you’re looking for. I believe that people are ALL perfect because of their imperfections, not in spite of them. Need help formulating a list of qualities?

2) Get Out There And Date:
Another thing you can do if you want to meet a woman offline is to get out there and date! Online dating might seem easier, but it actually makes you lazy with your dating habits. If the most you are willing to do is log onto your computer, and browse through a bunch of dating prospects while you sit at home on your couch, then you will be alone for a long time.
The key is to be proactive in your dating strategy.The energy you put out there is the energy you will get back. Thus if you are laid back in your dating approach, you will have a laid back dating experience. And, I do not mean laid back as in easy going. You have to actively get out there and position yourself so that you have the best chance of meeting a woman offline.
If you’re looking for a compassionate woman who loves animals, get out there and volunteer at an animal shelter or perhaps adopt a dog and then hang out at your local dog park. If you want to be with a woman who loves children, volunteer at a children’s shelter. The children’s ward at the hospital is a great way to get involved with a charitable cause that raises money or awareness for children. This in itself will make you feel good! And, when you feel good you become more attractive to the opposite sex.
Dating should be fun! Therefore the time and energy you put into meeting a woman offline will result in what you get back in return. If you like coffee, spend some time in a cafe near your home so you can meet someone new. And, guys, if you see a woman who looks attractive or interesting to talk to, it is okay strike up a conversation. Sure, she might be married, have a boyfriend or not interested. The thing is you will never know unless you try.
Take a chance, and don’t be too concerned with the woman who isn’t into you, but rather the one who will be totally smitten with you after you meet. After all, there are just as many single and available women waiting to talk to you offline, as there are online.
3) Be Patient:
Dating in the 21st century can be very frustrating for a lot of people. In fact, your life might be quite chaotic and full, leaving little time to meet a woman offline, let alone online.
So what’s the Secret? Patience!
Let’s face it, life is happening. However, if you want to meet a woman offline, the most important quality you can develop is patience. That means you will have to really make the time and put yourself out there. And, trust me there will be plenty of days that you will not want to go sit in a coffee shop, walk around a museum — alone — nor volunteer or attend a charity event. Hell, you may really be pressed for time with everything that is happening in your life!
On the other hand, if you cannot make the time to get out, then how on earth will you make time for a man in your life? Sure, it’s easy to curl up in bed, browse through tons of dating profiles, and dream about the perfect woman. But, you’ve been down that road, and if you’re reading this, then you know exactly where that road leads to –ALONE!
So, the secret is to suck it up, keep an open mind and be patient. If you are being creative and getting out there, and I mean really putting yourself out there, it’s only a matter of time before you meet a really great woman offline! And, trust me you will.
