Online dating sites don't solve that^^ problem. No matter how you meet the person...whether it's in the library, on vacation, at the gym, or through an online dating site, the end result will be the same. You meet, and you either wind up dating, or you don't. Point is...how you got there, doesn't matter at all. It won't solve any problems that you have dealing with relationships.

A lot of smart women don't really go out in public to meet guys anymore so they use online dating. Guys notice this all the time and that's why you will hear guys say women don't seem approachable. The gym is a perfect example I've watched probably a hundred women the last time I was a gym member and the vast majority of them gave me the "don't even bother to try and talk to me" look. Meeting someone at the grocery store or something is like a thing of the past it doesn't happen anymore. The bad news is with these smart attractive women online is that they get 100 emails a day from guys spamming them so they never write back to 99 percent of the men that email them.

The gym is a terrible place to pick up on women! The gym is a meat market as it is and that's one of the reasons I wear headphones and stay to the back as much as possible. I'm there to work out, not to meet men.

I appreciate the input since I really pay attention to what women say when it comes to this subject. Your post definitely is affirmation of what I have seen other women say and what I've seen first hand.

In your opinion...if you had to choose your top 3 places you would go to meet men in real life...where would it be? Or where would you recommend a guy goes to try and meet someone?
