Where are they all hiding? I’m sure this is something you might have found yourself asking. Perhaps the biggest difference that I’ve found between coaching guys and coaching women in their love lives is that men never ask this question.
In fact I don’t think that I can recall ever being asked by a guy where to meet more women, yet the topic of meeting men and the best places to meet men is something that seems eternally fascinating to women, as many are never meeting their ideal man.
On our weekends, a topic that we cover in a lot of detail is the best places to meet guys. When we go through this, rather than just giving you the definitive list of places to go, we encourage you to think of your own by asking this one very important question…
What would your ideal guy be doing on a Sunday morning?
Have a good think to yourself about this. Before answering definitively, consider why he’d be there, what makes him the type of guy that would go to where you’re thinking, and is it a specific enough place.
I think there is a vast difference between the types of guy that women go after. Some value intelligence and wit far more than a guys physical capabilities. Some women long for adventurous, spontaneous guys. Really have a think about this before you set of on a voyage of different places trying to track him down.
Do you see how this kind of question opens so many more pathways in your mind in comparison to just asking the simple question of where to meet a guy? I would argue that you could read all the articles ever written on the topic of the best places to meet guys and still miss out on a metropolis of guys that would be perfect for you because your not outgoing enough with your own, unique passions. That’s not to say that a list of the 10 best places to meet guys isn’t valuable, but like we teach on the weekends, try and use it to spark your own imagine as opposed to treating it like the definitive guide…
1) Tate Modern
If you’re into your art, then the Tate (or any other gallery for that matter) is the perfect place to meet your new men. You’ll have plenty of time to amble around the gallery looking for guys that take your fancy. And when you see one, it’s easy enough to start a conversation… just ask their opinion on a particular piece of artwork!
2) The Apple Store
Living in London, you’ll have a few Apple stores to choose from (Regent’s St, Covent Garden & Brent Cross to name a few). If ever there was going to be a place swarming with men, all happy to give you their help and opinion on something, then it’s the apple store.
Why not try snapping up a few guys in the January sales? Grab yourself a few bargains while shopping for men. And Harrods seems like the perfect place for doing just that; firstly you’ve got 7 floors to choose from, and secondly the men shopping there aren’t likely to be doing too badly!
Why not get inspired to get active watching Federer and Nadal whilst indulging over some strawberries and cream? Go and see your favourite Tennis stars in action, and walk the grounds between matches. ‘Henman Hill’ (or newly named ‘Murrayfield’) is always packed with people relaxing, watching the tennis, who are all out to have a good time.
5) The British Library
Put on your reading glasses and head down to one of the biggest libraries in the world. With over 14 million books at it’s disposal, the British Library can be a great stomping ground to practice your cheeky smile and seductive eyes as you’ll have to get his attention quietly!
6) Kew Gardens
If you’re after a guy whose more into nature and wildlife then visit Kew Gardens, the worlds most famous gardens. There are a number of cafes and restaurants for you to start chatting to guys after you’ve walked around the gardens.
7) Open Air Theatre
If again you like the idea of being outdoors, (and don’t mind taking a risk on the weather!) why not head over to Regent’s Park to see a show in the summer? The open air theatre houses ‘the West Ends longest bar’ and there is plenty of mingling before and after shows. The theatre also even has a barbecue and a picnic lawn that is available before evening performances.
8) Hyde Park
There is almost an infinite amount of land to explore in the 350 acres of greenery that is Hyde park. Try walking your dog (or cat if you haven’t got one) on any given Sunday morning, and you’ll be overwhelmed by the sheer number of guys.
9) British Military Fitness
As daunting as their title might sound, the BMF is the largest and longest running provider of outdoor fitness classes in the UK. There are 25 locations in London where training takes place, so it’s as convenient to find as it is full of guys!
10) Silent Dating
Similar to speed dating, but with one big difference – no speaking allowed, silent dating, otherwise know as eye gazing involves looking directly into the eyes of a partner for 2-3 minutes at a time, followed by the usual speed-dating gong. Not only is this a great place to meet guys, it’s another great place to practice the great body language tips that you’ve be working on.
It was Hitch that said, 90% of all human communication is non verbal, and after attending one of these events, I think you certain to know why!
So there you have it, the 10 best places to meet men in london. As a challenge from reading this article I’m going to say that in the next month, you have to go to 3 places you don’t normally visit, and I encourage you to decide on them now or it’s likely you never will. Write them down on a little piece or post it note, and put it somewhere that’s going to haunt you if you don’t follow through (the fridge door and the bathroom mirror are two great examples!)
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this article, and as always, leave me your comments and feedback, as both myself and the team love to read them :)
