Guys, today’s dating world is set up for your success. With so many sites, apps, and social media networks to choose from, it’s easier than ever to meet girls online and offline. Whether you’re looking for a date, hookup, relationship, or even marriage, you have plenty of options out there.

Thanks to online dating, modern single men can search for women based on their dating standards and start flirtatious conversations from the comfort of home.

Here are the 4 best ways to meet single women in the dating scene.

1. Online Dating Sites

The Pew Research Center says more than 40 million people use online dating sites to meet people. If you’re single and don’t have a dating profile somewhere, you’re missing out on the simplest and fastest way to meet a lot of attractive and interesting women.

We’ve tested a ton of dating sites, so we know which ones are worth your time. Our favorites include Match, which is designed to facilitate long-term relationships, and BeNaughty, which is designed to facilitate short-term romance.

Zoosk is great for casual dating, relationships, and social networking because singles can send likes, greetings, and some messages without paying for a premium membership plan.

If you’re a little more invested in the online dating process though, an upscale dating site like eharmony could steer you right.

You don’t have to do much searching on eharmony because this smart dating platform delivers daily matches complete with compatibility ratings.

2. Dating Apps

Dating apps offer a great way to meet local women on your terms and on your time. Dating apps have become extremely popular because they’re fun and easy — not to mention you can date from anywhere. We’re big fans of these popular dating apps:

  • Tinder: the go-to dating app if you want to hook up.
  • Hinge: for conversing with like-minded people who want something serious.
  • Bumble: puts women in charge by only allowing them to make the first contact.

There are even dating apps based on religion — JDate for Jewish people, ChristianMingle for Christians, etc. As you can see, there really is something for everyone online.


Meetups put groups of people together based on their mutual interests, and there are a lot of different groups based on a lot of different activities: cooking, hiking, painting, music, bowling, you name it. Pick the activity you like, and you’re going to meet like-minded people.

Photo of events is a great place to find like-minded people.

Sign up for, search for events in your area, and attend as many as you can. The key is to just get out there. Not only will you be able to interact with different types of people, but you’ll also get to expand your horizons, learn a new skill, or find a new hobby.

4. Social Media

Facebook is by far the best social media site for meeting women online because it’s easy to break the ice. All you have to do is read a girl’s posts and then comment underneath. Once she replies, you can start talking on Facebook Messenger. And since you’re a friend of a friend, she can feel safe around you from the start.

Thanks to the new Facebook Dating service, you can expand your reach and find online crushes in a snap.

Instagram can also give you access to attractive women in a more casual setting. You often get to see girls out partying, on vacation, or just hanging out with friends. Leave a comment on a photo or something she posted and try to go back and forth a little bit. Once she’s gotten comfortable with you, suggest that you move on to private messaging and even texting.

Meeting Women Online Doesn’t Have to be a Chore
