    Getting into relationships should be a natural process, not a forced one. Going out hunting for girls just seems somewhat pathetic to me. I mean sure you can go to the usual meat market clubs, but do you want to find a skanky girl for a one night stand?

    I'm female, attractive enough and barely had any experience with dating until I was 19/20. The reason my life suddenly changed is because I went off travelling to train as a ski instructor, met a whole new bunch of people and got to know myself better. I'd advocate taking up an activity you enjoy and to get you out of your normal group of friends and give yourself the chance to meet people.

    I've often heard the complaint that it is really hard to meet people. Well in order to do it you have to push yourself out of your comfort zone (ie circle of mates), put yourself out there and just do it! There really is no secret to it.

    I go to the female changing rooms at my gym, walk in and run forwards, trip over. 'Woah sorry ladies, wrong room. Ah my ankle" Then I get a swarm around me within seconds.
    Then while you trip over your scrape your ankle on the tiles on the floor, making your ankle bleeds. Then out of desperation they take off their underwear, with a piece of paper with their numbers on it inside then wrap it around, right?

    Well, good job, works everytime.

    Just put yourself out and about. Try clubs,Bars etc anywhere where there is a large number of girls around. Definetly dont try internet sites etc.

    I would like to ask the same question, especially since I can't find any types of partner I am interested in in the typical club scene, I find it extremely difficult to find people who are a shade more interesting than simply "likes getting drunk, shopping, going out, clubbing, etc.." so B-O-R-I-N-G.... Not that there's anything wrong with such activities by any means, but I think most people know this stereotype, and there's nobody I see that captivates me, and wants to make me spend time with them. I am not interested at all in "finding a hot girl and getting laid", I want somebody mature, intelligent, romantic, intimate, understanding and unconventional. Are there any places I could go where I would realistically find an interesting partner? I doubt it, but I'd like to be proven wrong with an answer.

    When people say "join societies", WHERE on earth are they? I've searched many times for societies of my interests as well as general societies, and have found nothing.

    No, not yet, I misunderstood, I was assuming you were referring to societies such as clubs outside school/university.. although I would imagine university societies will be ideal opportunities for socialising

    well uni societies are a great way of meeting people, but you can get clubs and societies outside of the uni/school setting. depending on what you enjoy doing, you can look for things. i would recommend looking at the noticeboards in local post offices, newsagents, leisure centres, colleges etc, and even the yellow pages is pretty useful. you should try a salsa dancing club

    Do you think it would be socially unacceptable if I were to join a club on my own?

    no of course not! i've done it before, and some of my other friends have joined stuff by themselves. to be honest, sometimes i think it's better if you go by yourself because it means you have to talk to other people rather than chatting to your friend.

    Eien..there are places you can go to outside of school/uni which lead to meeting a bunch of like-minded people. Pick something you are interested in, or want to learn..like a sport or an activity and then hunt for a club near to where you live which specialises in it.

    I've met tons of people through doing dance lessons, singing lessons, drama classes, book clubs, fanclubs for favorite bands..etc There are also plenty of places that run night classes with some interesting things you can do. All of these activities and groups I was in were outside of or after I finished school & get you mixing with a new crowd of people.

    Do these places tend to be very cliquey would you say at first? and would you say there is good opportunity to interact with the others.... because Ive found that, at uni, in my course no-one really talks to eachother everyone is in groups of two's or threes and its really not nice

    I think its because there isnt much chance for interaction, its just.. sit down, learn then leave....

    Well a lot of the activities which I became involved in outside of college were ones which do have a lot of interaction with other people. This is because at 6th form I had the exact problem you described, cookiecrumble. Everyone turns up, learns and buggers off again!

    With a club or group everyone there has chosen to show up each week and get involved with whatever activity the group is doing, so you all have that in common to talk about. I met my first boyfriend & first girlfriend at drama club & my book club.

    If you're finding it hard to meet people you're interested in you might as well mix with people you have more in common with and go from there.

    most of the time, its just confidence that you need to get things going, not your surroundings
