Summer should theoretically be an easy time to meet girls. The sun is out, the beach is packed...oh wait, that's the problem -- the beach is an overcrowded meat market. Rather than wedging yourself in the sand between a guido and a baby's soggy diaper, try to think outside the box. Here are a few places to meet girls in the summer that aren't the same old joints.
It seems like there's a new frozen yogurt place opening on every block of every city nationwide. And this is because ladies, for the most part, love fro-yo. So get over to Yogurtland, Pinkberry, Red Mango or whatever spot is nearest you. (And then follow Fro-Yo Code.)
Might be worth a walk through the Dewey Decimal System just to see if any bookworm ladies home from college are looking for a study break. Worst case scenario, you pick up a sports biography or that last "Hunger Games" novel you never got around to.
Yeah, they are nightmares for traffic and your whole street smells like smoked meat for a couple days, but street fairs are also great places to meet girls. Hang out by the lemonade stand and see who you can chat up. Or stay by the guy who does caricature portraits and tell the ladies he's not doing their beauty justice. You're welcome.
Bars With Outdoor Seating
Maybe you've been sitting around your local dive, thinking, "Where is everyone?" They're at the bar with the amazing rooftop deck or huge back patio. Girls are obsessed with drinking outside in the summertime, so make sure your next Guys Night Out has a place with a breeze.
In major cities, where fewer people have cars and everyone has to work weekends to pay rent, there's not always a way to make the beach happen. So the park becomes the beach. Sure, it's sweaty, there's no water to jump into, and there might be a weird homeless guy with his hands down his pants, but it's worth it when one of those cute sunbathers catches your stray Frisbee and joins the game.
Summer means your city has an influx of tourists, especially ones from overseas, hitting museums to see famous artwork. Hot girls from Rome to Russia will admire a guy who's cultured -- maybe they need a translator?
Look outside any major company's office at lunchtime, and you'll see hot interns eating salads they can barely afford. It wouldn't hurt to chat up some of the summer hires about whether applications are currently being accepted.
