Though reality stars Tenley Molzahn and Kiptyn Locke may have yet to win a reality show, but the couple has succeeded in finding love with each other.  Both Molzahn and Locke came in second on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, respectively, and then received the silver medal on Bachelor Pad, a new reality show that gave runners-up from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette a chance to win money and possibly find love.  Now that the shows have all ended, the pair is looking forward to letting their relationship develop without the stress of the cameras.  “On those shows you go straight into meeting the parents and talking about marriage, and there’s so much pressure,” Molzahn told People.  “But with the two of us together it’s just laughter all night long.”Where are some unique places to meet your match?

Cupid’s Advice:

While reality shows aren’t where most people find lasting relationships, Molzahn went on the shows with a purpose. “You need to date the ones that you think you can marry,” she says.  “I don’t believe in dating someone if you can’t see them in your future.” So where can you find the ones you think you can marry?

1. Where you’re comfortable: If you want to meet a mate with something in common, try looking in places where you’re already going: your art class, gym or even for chefs, at the grocery store.  Not only will you be more at ease in your element, but you’ll also have something to start chatting about.

2. Where you loved being: Think back to what you loved doing during your childhood for inspiration for a new hobby.  Loved sports?  Join a local recreational team.  Loved playing music?  Join a community class or band.  By rediscovering new passions, you will add dimension to your life, and possibly find someone to share those passions and grow with you.

3. Where you want them to be: Are you looking for a guy who’s nerdy chic?  Try the Apple Store.  Or how about a woman that’s fashion-forward?  Try chatting to someone browsing through Macy’s.  As long as you’re somewhere you can be comfortable and natural, stepping outside of your usual stomping grounds to find a partner in their natural habitat will help you expand your horizons.
