Default Places to meet women

Hey,

I am a single, 28 year old guy living in Southwest Minneapolis looking for places to meet women on the Twin Cities. I haven't had much luck lately meeting available, attractive women through friends, going out to bars, going to concerts, coffeeshops, etc. I was thinking about joining a club or taking a class where I might be able to meet more women (or make new friends). Does anyone have any ideas, or know of anywhere to look for postings for clubs/classes/organizations that I can join?

My main interests include music, politics, outdoor activities (mountain biking/XC skiing/downhill skiing/camping), and I am somewhat interested in art, literature, and other cultural activities.

Thanks

I met my wife online (Yahoo Personals) almost 10 years ago.

You seem to have all of the typical places covered already. I think taking a class or doing something outside of your normal activities is a good idea. Obviously there's no guarantee you would meet someone you fancy, but at least you would meet some new people and learn something/have some fun.

I volunteer for Minnesota Public Radio and I've met a lot of young and smart people through doing that. Or find another volunteer opportunity through something like Volunteer Match or Idealist. I know that local outdoor sports retailers like Midwest Mountaineering and REI have a fair number of outdoorsy classes and events. You could also try checking out events at art galleries, which generally have more women than men in attendance.

There's also, like someone suggested, the option of online dating, which I haven't had a positive experience with, but many have and it can't hurt to try it yourself.

If you have a soft spot for animals, a shelter might be another place to spend an hour or two a week volunteering. If you meet someone from there, odds are they'll be a very kind-hearted individual. And even if you don't meet someone there, when you DO meet somebody, wherever it happens to be, imagine her reaction when you tell her you volunteer your time to walk and play with orphan puppies. Seriously.

If all else fails hit craigslist for some erotic action by the hour, or google Minneapolis escorts. It beats waking up with a hangover and some chick you didn't need for more than 25 minutes anyways.. lol
