Where's a good place to meet a serious guy?
Luke had a good idea but the more serious government branch would be the FBI office Those guys are dead serious, and have no humor, that is, of course unless you sit back and watch them.

I wouldn't suggest a nightclub though but that's just my opinion. A gym is probably a good place.

Perhaps bang into some guy with your cart at the grocery store?

wow, this is so much more difficult for a woman--after all, we take it as a compliment if a guy shows us that he likes us--guess my approach will eliminate the close-minded jerks

Probably any of the haunts they had in the movie, The Lonely Guy.
Their existence is probably just primed to the core to be as serious and loyal as it takes to be with someone for the rest of their lives.

Coming out of the proctologist's office after a colonoscopy? Those are about as serious as you can get!

Sorry, couldn't resist!

For a classy girl or guy, you're best bet is church. Now sure, not everyone takes the word seriously. But for dating, it's hard to beat a place where people spend day in and day out learning about morality.

Are you testing us or something?

I wish this were a test; as for church, though I have faith, I don't really see myself going to church to meet anyone...seems to be a popular answer though!

Not all women do. Often the less attractive a woman sees the guy the less complimented she'll feel.

Supermarket! More successful than all the rest put together


Sooo true. I was going to mention in my club post that if anything, a guy I'm with should be more concerned about me meeting a guy in a supermarket then a club. (Not that I would allow it to happen) but supermarkets in singles neighborhoods are like a hotbed for guys.

Zebra,

Don't let me get rude with your ridiculous comments posted in this forum. One has to wonder why such an old man such as yourself, from another century, is on a site like this to begin with. Besides I'd rather be alone than in the company of a ultra conservative man like yourself. No woman with any self-respect would bow down to your unrealistic, medievalesque ideas regarding relationships. I may be single now, but it will be for a short time as I just got out of a long term relationship of 4 years and now that I am looking, there doesn't seem to be a short supply of single men showing some sort of interest.

Thanks to everyone else who provided some constructive and helpful ideas--I think it's working! It also helps that I have the summer off and can finally socialize again.

Zebra, you might want to open your mind to what others have to say, especially the women as I assume you're not interested in dating your male friends. By the way, the next generation of dating is here..

Scan their carts for feminine products first...

Hang around the produce section... stop and ... longingly.... lovingly... stroke some cucumbers or bananas...
quickly scan the crowd that forms and give the guy you want a wink...


LMAO here!! Never even thought to check what was in their cart. Does seem produce is always the place to be. I tend to look for the guys that know how to feel out a peach.

Social club or events where people would have some common interests or backgrounds.

I'm not much for church but if you want to meet someone who's probably serious try church singles groups.

Other than that, do stuff that you like and hang out with people who do hobbies you enjoy. Worst case scenario is you meet some new friends.

Well, I happen to like the club scene but the majority rules it's not a place to meet someone nice--however, going out to dance and dressing fashionably are part of my interests--wouldn't make sense I would meet someone with similar interests at such a place?

a nightclub is not a good place for meeting a potential life partner, it can happen, but the odds are against it. most are there for a one night deal. i find it attractive that a woman would go up to a guy and start talking..very assertive, very sexy...
