Where’s the best place for 20-somethings to meet singles in the real world? The easy answer would be to say through an online dating site, and while that would be true if you were looking at where singles meet digitally, it’s not the same as where they have the best chance of meeting organically.
Believe it or not, the best chance at finding someone between 18 and 28 is on a university campus!
With a growing number of people enrolling in universities in 2010 and 2011, it’s no wonder that the highest concentrated number of 20-somethings in one place is at a school. But now that you know where to find them, how can you further that to finding someone to have a relationship with?
Head over to the campus coffee shop
When people have a few minutes in between class, chances are they’re not going to stand around and wait for their next class, they’re going to find something to do! Coffee shops are always filled with people who are looking to waste time, and what better way to do that then getting to know someone! Find someone sitting by themselves who has a free seat around them, and ask if you could take a seat. It’s an easy way to break the ice and opens the door to conversation.
Check out the library
Everyone needs to study in University, and the library is the place to go. If anyone catches your eye, mention the subject they’re reading up on and offer your expertise. If you don’t know anything about their field, ask them about it! Talking through their subject will help them study, so really by hitting on them, you’ll be doing them a favor!
Go to the campus store
Every university has a store that sells essential reading materials for class, and the lines are often longer than the wait to get into the college pub. If someone is buying a book they need for class, there’s no doubt they’d appreciate a little distraction with conversation as they wait in line.
Support your team at a sporting event!
Sporting events are great places to meet people because you already have something to talk about: The team! It unites the two of you with a common interest and makes it easy to talk in such a relaxed and fun environment. And, best of all, the endorphins you get while cheering for a team are the same ones you have while having sex!
It’s easy to meet people on campus, all you have to do is start talking!
