Start planning for The Bachelor Season 19 viewing parties now! While the reality show isn’t set to air until January 5, 2015, has the first exclusive look at Chris Soules. The 32-year-old Midwest farmer who won our hearts on Andi Dorfman’s season of The Bachelorette now has his chance to find a relationship and love. The first promo pic for the season is captioned: “Traditional. Classic. All-American.” It was also just announced that The Bachelor premiere will be three hours long and live! “Coming from a small town, I never really expected to have this opportunity to be on either show, let alone to be the lead on The Bachelor, so it’s been awesome,” Soules shared after his announcement was made on Good Morning America.

 ‘The Bachelor’ offers a unique way to meet a new partner. What are some other ways to meet someone?

Cupid’s Advice:

Are you tired of the same boring potential partners you meet each weekend at the local watering hole? You probably don’t want to go as far as being the next Bachelor or Bachelorette (if only we were all so lucky!), but you do want to find fresh and exciting people to bring into your love life. Cupid knows it can be tough, so here is some dating advice to help you meet someone new:

1. Hang out where big groups gather: Think about where men and women often spend time together. Get a few girlfriends and go to a place you know will be flocking with men, like a local steakhouse or a nearby sports bar on game night. If you’re looking for ladies, head to the mall or a popular park in your town. The more people around, the better chance you have of meeting someone who’s a good fit for you.

2. Volunteer: What could be better than a significant other who gives back to their community? It’s time to get involved and start volunteering! You will meet single men and women who are caring and passionate about something. Plus, you’ll be doing something good for your town while you search for The One!

3. Join a local sports team: Not only will you meet tons of single men and women– but you can get in better shape and release any stress from work. That cute pitcher is sure to be turned on by your impressive batting skills!
