I dont know about anyone else, but i dont go "boyfriend hunting"...hehe.

Actually, for me, I have became really good friends with guys from both school and work. I know that since Im only 16, I cant say I pick up hot guys from the bar!! LoL

I dont go to the mall much either...I dont really think there are certain places that either guy or girls go to go "relationship hunting"...but maybe thats just me..

The most common place...Hmmmmmm . You can meet anyone anywhere when you go out, movies, mall, to a different city, a party, or just out with friends in general. Anywhere. Well if you are looking for somebody.

Finding a boyfriend or girlfriend generally isn't about statistic. None of us can just tell you to spend your spare time at a certain location and a signifigant other will drop into your lap in no time.

The best advice I can give you is to go out places and start meeting people. Be social at school, take a course in something you're really interested in (this is a GREAT way to meet people who have similar interests to you), go to parties.... The easiest way to meet people is through your friends.

Just be yourself and be social!

Oddly, I have met more people I've dated in my life at the grocery store or market than almost anywhere else.

I find that no matter where I go, I am always confused for someone who works at wherever I am (market, library, bookstore), so voila -- one strikes up conversation.

And hey, if you have tofu and Seamus Heaney in common...

i think the best place to find a b/f-g/f is to go somewhere where you'll be with people with common interests, like, a book store poetry reading, a stable, a skate park, maybe even your work, and especially school...

My spouse' opinion is that the best place to meet men is at the dry cleaners. There you can be reasonably be assured that the guy

a) is employed

b) bathes

That being said, we met through a personals add in Toronto Life.

I used to hang around a speedway near me and I'd meet tons of guys there...guys like fast cars, I like cars period, so that always worked out good for me.

I've also met a handful of guys (and you could meet girls there too) at my aunts condominium. Families go there for weeks at a time and you always run into the same people over and over, on your way to the beach, the pool, in the elevator. It's a friendly enviroment and a cool way to get to know someone (not to mention romantic i.e.-walking the beach at midnight).

Another place is when local bands play I go to the shows and always meet tons of new people and potential boyfriends. So, I'd say you can meet boyfriends/girlfriends anywhere, just keep your eyes open!

I met my partner when a guy friend took me to meet a number of other guys for an RPG. The game really, really sucked. But at least something good came of it. Still, there's got to be a better way to meet people!

this is going to sound completely lame adn geeky but its the truth
for me i found the place where i met most of the ppl whom i was attracted to was on the internet.
interesting personalities intrigue me the most about someone
ofcourse physical chemistry must be present too
but i find alot of the guys hwo i "like"i have met on the net
and some of them are guys who i wud never have taken a second loook at physically

its the second best thing u can do with your lips

I met mine on the internet.

During the irc addiction phase of my life.

But seriously, I have no idea where to meet guys and girls.

I would have to say school.
