3 Places to Look for a Date

I'm married now, but when I was dating, I was looking for love in all the wrong places. Let's just say new age workshops about "finding the one" are not attended by hot firefighters or billionaire CEO's or by any men for that matter.

These workshops were just filled with desperate ladies like myself that didn't yet understand that the time and money spent there would have served us better if we'd spent it at say, Home Depot. Which, as it turns out is number one on my list.

Now that I've had almost eight years of married life to study man-habits. I can so clearly see where I should have been spending my time if I wanted to meet someone like my husband. If you are single and on the hunt, I hope this will help you think outside the box.

If this list doesn't work, try this: imagine all the activities you like to do and don't do those for awhile, go places and do things out of your wheelhouse. If you love wandering around used bookstores, for example, imagine where a guy who hates to read might be, maybe a game store? Once you're married you can go back to spending your time doing stuff you actually enjoy, like your all-girl book/wine club.

So here's my list:

1. Home Depot  
Yes, you will have to glance at the ring fingers because a lot of married guys go to Home Depot too. But there must be single guys there as well and they teach classes on how to make stuff. You'll walk away with more than you'll get at one of those new age dating seminars. Disclaimer: If you see my husband there, stay away, the 6 ft. 4 engineer with the bag of fertilizer is all mine!

2. Comic Con
Sure, I'd have no interest in going there but I love smart, geeky guys so it probably would've been wise for me to show up there in a Wonder Woman costume at some point.

3. Paintball or Laser Tag Place
Admittedly, this one might be best for the college-aged girls and still may seem juvenile, but there will be dudes there especially during an evening on a weekend. And if there is no one you like at least you'll be able to get out your aggression by shooting guys with balls of paint. That's not a waste of a Saturday.

Feel free to leave your favorite meeting spots in the comments section.

Shades of Sydney

Sydney West enjoys sampling summer boys, but this year, one refuses to be a one-night stand… Twenty-one-year-old Sydney doesn’t believe in relationships. Her parents’ toxic divorce has taught her love is nothing but a sinister fairytale. So every summer she parties, hooks up, abandons her lover before dawn, and repeats.
That is until she meets gorgeous local surfer Jason King at the beach…
When Jason fails to flirt—or even give her a second glance—she decides something must be wrong with him, and it’s safer to stay away. But when Sydney and Jason’s best friends hook up and become Malibu’s hottest couple, they are forced to spend more time together than either of them cares for. Armed with a sharp tongue, Sydney works to keep Jason at bay…
In a moment of weakness, Sydney lets her guard down and confides in Jason, realizing he’s more than just a hot guy—he’s also a friend. And when Sydney’s need for a summer boy results in her falling into bed with Jason, despite her better judgment, she run…
