    Having been a member of many chess clubs, I can tell you that they are definitely not a 'hot spot' for relationship-material women. Largely because there are very few women who attend chess clubs... The ones who do attend are generally lovely people, though!

    From a woman's perspective, I guess chess clubs provide a high guy:girl ratio, but you get a real mix with us chess players!

    Gym sounds like a good place to start. Hobbies that have an even balance of guys to girls are probably are also good - clearly, you want to go to places where the people share some of your interests, beliefs, and likes, if you're looking for relationship material And an even balance makes sure you haven't got lots of competition or too many suitors

    These 'hobbies' seem to be a thing for girls to hook up, rather than for guys. Evening classes, a sport, anything. I made the experience that girls in these areas are like predators, looking for a guy.
    I don't know about other guys, but for me, I go to these things because I enjoy them, or want to learn them, not because I want to socialise.

    Oh and please don't do these online things. People are one person online and another offline. Often they flirt online because they are too shy in real life to say the things they do. High probability to hook up with a mental dude.

    Online is gay. There are fifty penises to every vagina, and most of the women aren't worth it. For the girls, most guys on there are aggressive, loners, or weirdos, all of whom are just looking for sex.

    At the gym could be a good place, but most of the guys are show offs. Look for a guy reasonably far from any mirrors who is sweating (if he is sweating, he is taking it seriously and not acting like a douche in front of the mirrors). If he is with other guys, chances are he is a latent homosexual. That is the reality of guys at the gym.

    Clubs are full of drunk idiots that are devoid of social skills. They'll slobber all over you, force themselves into your place with them, poke your hip with their penis for thirty seconds, fall asleep, then crap in your toilet and sneak out before morning.

    What interests do you have? Pursue these, and you will meet people that have things in common, and who are also passionate and interesting.

    Yes, I am serious. You could watch the documentary "catfish" for a peek, where a woman creates a whole fictional personality, and even pretends to be a different person when they meet up.

    And besides, you have human instincts, there are some things you want in a partner that you maybe not know yourself, but when you see he has it, you know he's right. Just like some guys could seem perfect for you against your criteria but after you talk with them you feel this isn't right.
    Intuition, or whatever you call it.
    You can't see that online.

    Of course you might be lucky, but consider the chances. You might be wasting a lot of time getting intimate with one guy after another just to find out they are not what you are looking for.

    You have quite the criteria though, so maybe for your 'niche target audience' the internet is the best spot.

    If you look for it you never get it, everyone knows that. Women are so fixated on relationships - if you join a club, do it because you like the activity. If you like the activity you will be more vivacious and people will like you.
