Cupid’s Advice:

Bars and clubs aren’t often the best ways to meet a partner.   Cupid has some alternative suggestions:

1. Coffee shop: Although buying a drink doesn’t involve alcohol, the relaxed nature of a coffee shop creates a perfect atmosphere to approach someone to whom you’re attracted too.

2. Underneath the mistletoe: ‘Tis the season!  With the holidays quickly approaching, one of the many winter festivities could give you an opportunity to find your own snow bunny.  Go skiing, snowboarding, sledding and more.

3. Breaking a sweat: Most people don’t expect to find someone while working out, which gives you an opportunity to be the exception to the rule and sweep someone off the elliptical.
