How do young people meet eachother in 2019?

I am 23, my relationship is falling apart, and I graduated from college last may. I am trying to think of ways to meet new people without the aid of dumb social media and internet outlets like Tinder/Grinder. I really missed the boat to explore relationship wise in college and now I feel like shit is hopeless because all the cute guys that I pass by are probably straight and taken anyway... any HELPFUL advice?

Is It Normal?

  • There aren't nice guys anymore, 99% on tinder and the rest is someone who doesn't know how to use the app 😂

  • I always got laid by hanging out with my dude friends(no homo) We would go to bars and hangout with groups of random chics. If I met a chic id tell her to bring her friend over for my friend and vice versa. Networking is the way my friend.

  • Like I said some weeks ago to some other person... interests and hobbies. Immediately you have a common bond. Its much better than meetup places like clubs and whatnot that (for me anyway) are dark and dingy negative places. Hobbies are wholesome and you'll probably meet wholesome people too.

    Take up dancing or something. Theres bound to be some brosephs there worth your while. Or volunteer at an animal shelter. Again wholesome people that are doing positive things in their spare time.

  • Don't waste time on apps and dating sites. Work on your social life and someone will come along. I've dated guys from real life and from the internet and I found that the guys I net on the internet had inherent incompatibilities because they were the people who hang with such different (and unlikeable) circles that we would have never met in real life.

    • A couple of months ago, I met this cute as a button guy off of grinder. He will be turning 19 in july, Ill be 24 im october. He is very young and naive (in that he is using the platform to do more than get quick sex. Guess that makes me naive too) it was perfect. Then I met his “friends” (all online). He had no social skills at all, cripiling anxiety (its a wonder how he even mustered the courage to meet me) and no life skills... Its one thing to have online friends, and another to physically dissassociate yourself from physical contact. He was still very much a child and I wanted none of that (eventhough he is still cute as a button).

  • Believe it or not but the supermarket is a great place to meet people. If you see someone that you want to know better check for a wedding band first and then approach them and ask some question about a product on the shelves and carry on from there. I've met some very interesting people that way. Be sure to get a phone number. :)

        • I’m asking about non social outlets because I have tried meeting people through social media and every single time that person wants to hit it and quit it. I am looking to invest in more than just quick sex.

  • At 23 there will still be plenty of single people, don't worry. It's a myth that everyone meets their future spouse at college. Many people find their "one" at much older than you are now. I hadn't met my husband yet at 23. I was too busy taking drugs and trying to establish my career to worry about finding a man (piece of life advice - taking drugs does not help you establish your career)

    Just get out there and do stuff. Clubs, bars, sports groups, volunteering. You meet people in all sorts of places. And online, of course. People do that a lot these days

  • Hobbies and interests are a good way to go. Have you tried Meetup.com? There are lots of meetups/clubs for different topics and activities. You know when you meet someone there that you already have a common interest. I wasn't searching for a boyfriend at the time, but I met my future husband at a meetup.
