    Lately I've been focusing on finding ways to meet new people (to avoid being single for the rest of my life). I have a few hobbies and 2 workplaces (workplaces lacking women though) and regularly attend other meetups. But it still doesnt appear to be enough

    I've read that volunteering is a great way to meet new people and have even heard about people meeting the love of their life through it. Plus there's the obvious plus-point of doing something good for the community.

    I don't mean to sound selfish though but I'd rather focus on whatever kind of volunteering would make me more likely to meet new people, including girls. I would prefer to avoid the kind of voluntary work that will result in me just meeting a bunch of other males (I'm used to that at a lot of the other places I frequent)

    Any suggestions?

    Nearby city Charity/fund-raising events, probably the best places, as there are loads of people there you can greet and socialise with . Definitely avoid hospices, care homes etc, sorry, but you won't find anyone there.

    Thanks, you means specifically just events then? There is a local arts one coming up quite soon and I think they have volunteers to show people round etc. I'm not sure how well I could get to know people just doing that, but would be good if I had other volunteers working alongside me that I could get to know better

    Do you live in Manchester?, as there's many events , that I've been to before, that would be ideal for you.

    Volunteering in a charity shop is always good
