Obviously there aren’t many attractive, available women at the usual places guys hang out – sports bars, the gym, a buddy’s living room. So go where the babes are. They’re meeting each other for coffee at cafes, browsing the green market and drinking at trendy restaurants and bars.

Find yourself a wingman (or, even better, a wingcouple, since being the third wheel is a neon sign that you’re unattached) and start hitting new venues. You see, the bane of the single man isn’t a receding hairline or a pot belly – it’s a stale routine.
