If you’re golfing as a single, you’ll be meeting three new people (most likely men) and odds are in your favor that at least one of them is single.(The Census Bureau estimates that 30 percent of Americans born between 19 are single.) You’ll have him all to yourself for eighteen holes, and if you like him, you can let him buy you a Bloody Mary when you finish your round.Charities are always looking for warm bodies to help with auction items, ticket taking, setup, and other odd jobs on the day of the event. Checking people in at the door – you’ll get to meet every person who attends and better yet, you’ll know if that sharp-dressed charmer has tickets for two.
If the conference feels too pricey, contact the organization or speaker and see if there’s a way you can work at the event in exchange for free admission.That said, there are lots of great places to meet someone fabulous, and many of them have little or no competition. These events are social, and as an added bonus, you know everybody there is employed.Your insider buddy can act as your tour guide to help you avoid the guy who sticks paperclips up his nose or the weirdo with fifty-nine cats.If you bring your own foursome, most of your socializing will probably take place in the clubhouse after your round.And a group of four women in a clubhouse overpopulated by men is bound to stand out like a basket of daisies.
