Not to be prudish, but other than bars where do you expect to meet quality men? i grew up in the south and i dont recall my grandmother ever saying that the Bar was a good place to meet a gentleman or a lady. i would think church, charity functions, family gatherings, cocktail parties at peoples homes, at activity functions, political functions and volunteering, concerts, bookstores, just as one would meet someone in any other place.

also branching out from ones social class, ethnic background, etc., like its being done all over the country in 2011

If it would be *any* help whatsoever I can ask the single guys that would fit in the dateable category where they hang out on their own. Maybe the same kind of thing would apply for other similar guys. I know for sure that one gave up on the bar scene because the atmosphere there wasn't his thing anyway. I don't think they're big on coffee shops in the area, because those are pretty empty whenever I go. Most of the time when I see them everyone is out in a group as in, people who already know each other. They're really into the church they go to though.

I think the "bar scene" pretty much ends for most people after the age of 25. I don't go to bars! just to clear that up..most of my girl friends here don't go to bars either. I don't even drink (other than a glass of wine with my dinner or an occasional beer) so why in the world would meeting someone in a bar be appropriate?

I think you're right ScubaSteve and Carolinajack...other social events would be the key. Funny you mentioned church! I know people who go to church just to "meet people"...they could give a rip about actually "going to church". That seems a little hypocritical to me. I'm not big on church (no offense to those who are). I've met great people here through triathalon clubs, running groups, volunteering, art gallery crawls and other things. Meeting people isn't the problem, the dilemma is meeting available dates. Lots of people are married post age 35....

It would be interesting ScubaSteve to hear what your guy friends have to say. Again, this isn't a dating forum, just a discussion about dating experiences for people over 35 and the challenge a city like Charleston (with such a big "bar scene") can pose for people in general. Just a discussion so don't anybody get all bent out of shape and start hurling insults and assumptions...nobody really wants to hear all that! PS the jokes are the best part!

...clipping coupons, grocery shopping, rubbing necking at accident scenes, helping older ladies cross Ashley Phosphate Rd during rush hour, getting 8 hours of sleep....

SS - there are those of us who also don't enjoy the bar scene (hard to get 8 hours of sleep!) but also want to meet fun, educated and active women who can hold a decent conversation on what's going on with the economy and world events...I know they exist but where?

I actually hadn't thought of it this way, but Flat2MT I can see where a guy who isn't a bar hopper would have the same dilemma! Great post!

Honestly, when I lived in Atlanta, Charlotte, and Greenville, I found it much easier to meet people and date, possibly (and I'm thinking because) there were far more options for entertainment other than party scenes. I'll ask the ladies some questions and see what I can find out. There has to be a better way for people of like minds to meet!

I know alot has been posted about the "online dating" option, but my experience as well as the girls here who have done it, wasn't so great. Not being negative at all but it's almost like the "online bar scene". Some of the stories I hear from girls are horrible albiet comical! I'm told that some guys have literally been on there for years. I've even heard guys joke about how easy it is to "score a hook up online" (not making that up). I think in more metropolitan areas online may be a better option, but here, I'm not hearing good reviews. I'll do some research with the ladies, find out what they're doing and see what I can find out...

There are a lot of things to do here you just have to look around, Like I posted in one of the other threads, I walked through Down Town Summerville on a Tuesday night and the Accent on Wine Store was packed with people, it isn't a bar but a wine and snack food type place that has wine tastings and other things going on, like the Chocolate and Wine event on Tuesday....

We also had the SEWE event, last weekend....

The Dogmoor Stew event at Magnolia gardens, we will be there with both of my 4-legged children, is Sunday.....

Just pick up the City Paper and look at all of the things going on, or look at it online.....

Take a cooking class at Charleston Cooks!, as well. There are so many social events in this city, fundraisers, charities, art galleries, etc., that you should never have to worry about hitting a bar again. Pickup the Charleston City Paper and scout out what's going on. You'll have fun, and that's the easiest way to meet someone worthwhile.

Excellent posts OleTomCat and DJShymansky! That's the kind of postive feedback we need here...I acutally attended SEWE Dock Dogs and had a blast. I'd forgotten about Charleston Cooks...great idea! I also started volunteering for Pet Helpers, a wonderful pet rescue organization here in Charleston. Great ideas all around...are you taking notes Flat2MT?
