Check out the events that your friends are planning to attend and tag along with them! Additionally, be sure to go to their birthday parties or any other social gatherings where strangers might be invited and you can be easily introduced to someone.

Try taking the bus or the train to work. It can save you a little bit of stress from driving and the cost of gas. Of course, this benefits directly in the search for new people and potential dates. Pushing your limits is scary, but in order to really make yourself approachable it is good to get out and do things alone. Sure, it is fun to be with friends, but a stranger might be hesitant to approach you I they see you with someone they might think you are with. You are also more likely to want to talk to people when you are alone because people naturally gravitate toward other people.
Using a combination of these circumstances and environments leads you to a very high chance of meeting that special someone that you want to spend the rest of your love life with. Some of them might seem a little scary, but it is important to put yourself out in the world and to make yourself seem confident and approachable. The more confident you are in yourself and the more you respect yourself, the higher the chance you have of being approached by Mr. or Mrs. Right.
