what do single guys do on saturday afternoon?

luvmylocsluvmylocs Posts: 7,578Registered Users
okay i'm wanting to start meeting some new guys with the possibility of becoming friends and dating.

during the week nights i teach classes at the gym. saturday morning i teach a cycling class at the gym. there are a few guys there but it seems like the single guys must sleep in ;-) so i'm thinking i need to think about things i can do on saturday afternoons where i might cross paths with single guys. i have NO ideas? i figure the kind of guy i would be interested in probably isn't cruising the malls but i do sometimes go shopping and see a few guys but i just really want to expand beyond that. any ideas would be great!!

    i dunno, i suspect it has something to do with sports? play soccer or football or something with their friends? play guitar hero? go to the grocery store?

    i know, not helpful. but if you find out, lemme know. :)

    Watch college football? Or is that only if you live in a college town?

    At my school they do either one of two things:
    -Get drunk
    -Play video games

    Not great if you want to hang out and get to know somebody. :(

    This time of year they sleep in then watch football. If you like football, you could hit a sports bar in the afternoon. Do you golf? There are always guys at the driving range.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    Maybe you could do stuff you like to do or would like to do in places you want to be...That way if you meet guys there they're more likely to be interested in the same things you are.

    This is my suggestion as well. Do you the things you like to do, and you'll meet guys with the same interests (maybe not at the salon, but you know what I mean).

    If you enjoy stuff like cycling, hiking or nature walks (and you live in an area that offers those opportunities), you can meets lots of guys. They tend to be physically fit, too, so that's a big plus. :wink:

    In my area, outdoor activities are "advertised" in community/recreation calendars online and in newspapers. Some groups do things every week or, for example, every third Saturday of the month, so you can make plans.

    My husband was and is a big fisherman. He and his buddies would fish ALL DAY on Saturday.

    They're all cute too. ;)

    Most of the single guys I know, including the one I date, watch football, football and more football (this time of year anyway).

    thanks girls!!! how ironic is it that about an hour after i typed my op a guy friend of mine called and said he was going to a sports bar and asked if i wanted to meet him!!! i went. we had a nice time and i got to drink bud light which i love ;-) there weren't lot of single guys in there but i did see a few and it was cool and laid back. i think the sports bars will be a place i'll check out more often.

    today i sat by a really cute guy at church. this was our 2nd time sitting by each other but i saw him in the gym last week so i had something to say to him. i told him i saw him in the gym when i was teaching cycle. he kept looking in the class (but he was looking at the students not at the teacher, ha ha)...anyway we chatted it up in church when we could. it felt so great to have a positive exchange and i have a feeling there may be more!!

    anyway, back to single guys on the weekend. i think i need to branch out because the grocery story by my house is very family oriented and single gay guys. i once read about going shopping in another neighborhood. seems like a lot of work but i'm ready to meet new people.

    phoenix, i am a very big proponent of doing the things i like, i definitely do that!!! but at some point i realized i'm in a routine and not meeting new folks so that's why i put the question out there. i totally like my life but i want to meet someone to share it with!!

    partyhair, i've heard about single guys and fishing...i don't fish though :fish: so i'll have to pass on that one. love the idea about the golf range. i don't play but maybe i could learn....

    i won't be meeting the video game guys....probably for the best since i like active guys!

    i'm about to either go to the gym or the dog park....because i want to but maybe they'll be some single cuties there ;-)

    I highly recommend it! My husband and started out golfing together "as friends." And lessons are held at the driving range. :)

    In my experience.....

    ex-husband: watched sports, cooked, got mad at me for something.

    ex-fiance: sports, defecation, and beer. Oh, and brooded.

    current male dog: follows me around, farts.

    The dog's your best bet, as is often the case. ;)

    i ended up doing a combination of the dog park and the gym. i went to a regular park with a 3 mile trail with my dogs on a lease. there were some cute guys, some with dogs too. my boys get quite a bit of attention! anyway, no love connections but a fun afternoon and something i think i'll try to do on sunday afternoons.

    i'll look into golf lessons soon too!

    I'm glad to hear you are feeling more positive, even if there haven't been any 'love connections' perse. I was going to suggest a dog park also--I see alot of guys by themselves at the one near me.

    Have you tried any online dating? Jsut another avenue to explore perhaps.

    BTW, your 2 little doggies are just sooo darn cute! I love all dogs, but have a soft spot for those little terriers. :wink:

    I have no idea in which town or city you live in, but if it's a big enough city, why not try swing or salsa dancing? Most places offer an hour lesson at the beginning and you could find a DVD that teaches basics. It's fun and adds something different to your routine. The cities where I would dance -- St. Louis and Phoenix -- always had single guys. There are usually a variety of people -- ages, ethnicities, couples, singles. I also second the idea of using Meetup.com or Meet-in.com.

    thanks LAwoman! i love my boys. they are so sweet. they were pooped from walking at the park then getting baths last night. i did online dating before. i think i'll give it another try. i'm also trying to spend more time out on the gym floor and not just rushing into class then leaving the gym. trying to make time to talk to folks in the gym.

    hey multicultcurly, i'm in the 4th largest city in the us so there should be dancing options. that's a good idea. i LOVE to dance so that might be fun. i will check out meetup.com for interesting groups this week.

    Saturday night my DH and I went to Barnes and Noble and hung out in the coffee shop. I noticed tons and I mean tons of single guys! I never thought of that when I was single. Do you have one near you?

    Sleep and watch football. You might hit up a Buffalo Wild Wings or some other sports bar/restaurant. Also a lot of them go to the gym on the weekends.
  • luvmylocsluvmylocs Posts: 7,578Registered Users
    i actually like the bookstore (too much) but i wouldn't think guys would be there on weekend nights but i'll check it out!!

    you know i was thinking about buffalo wild wings. there's one in a popular part of town here. i think the gym is good but seriously they must not come out until later in the afternoon because when i'm there for my 9 am class it's all married men!!! i guess they have to work out early and get back to do their honey-do's ;-)
