When you think of summertime, what images come to mind? Long, lazy days at the beach? Ice-cold beers on a sunny patio? Hot dogs at a baseball game? All of these are excellent summer activities, but what good is summertime if you’re just hanging out with your buddies? Meeting girls during the hot and heavy months of summer is the best way to spend your time, so here’s our Top 7 list of the best places to meet girls in the summertime:
The beach is the quintessential summer place to be—it’s hot, it’s fun, it’s casual and it’s a great spot to girl-watch. It doesn’t matter where you live, as long as you can get to a beach in the summertime. There are few environments where sitting on a towel in the sand watching girls strut past you wearing nothing but skimpy bikinis (if that!) is perfectly acceptable.
When you are trying to pick up girls at the beach, you just have to make sure you follow a few simple steps. First, make sure that you look appealing to the fairer sex. After all, there’s nothing like sweat dripping off your back hair to make everyone at the beach cringe in horror! When you approach a girl at the beach, make sure you aren’t just staring at her body—even the sexiest girls in the skimpiest bikinis can feel insecure when meeting a guy at a time when they are barely covered. And, most importantly, be interesting, funny and attractive so that she will be interested in you. A good way to start a conversation would be to ask her if she wants to grab an ice cream with you, join you for a game of beach volleyball, or go for a walk on the beach.
This summer, break out your tent, sleeping bag and waterproof matches and get back to nature. Of course camping isn’t for everyone, but there are lots of women who love it. If you are looking for a low-maintenance girl who will share your love of campfires and beer, meeting a girl while on a camping trip might be your best bet. A sunny long weekend will ensure that the campground you’re at is going to be full of campers, many of them are going to be young party-goers.
Going camping with a group of friends is a fun way to relax and get to know each other. Get your female friends or maybe your buddy’s sisters to bring some of their female friends camping as well, which is an easy way to get to know girls that are already a part of your circle of friends. During the day, you can head to the beach or the lake for some water fun. And at night, you can sit around the campfire with the ladies.
Coed Sports Leagues
Summertime is the best time of the year to join a coed sports league. Everyone is in a good mood, people are fit, attractive, tanned and most importantly, they are out to have a good time. Consider joining a recreational coed beach volleyball or Ultimate Frisbee team and you can ensure that you will meet girls and have a fun summer.
All you have to do to become involved in a coed sports league is to sign up a team through a local league service. So, get your buddies off their couches this summer, grab some female friends, and get out there. Once you start playing, you will become friendly with the other teams. Plus, with after-games drinks and end-of-season parties, you are sure to meet someone new!
The Cottage at the Lake
If you are one of the lucky ones to have a family cottage overlooking a lake, then you probably spend your summers out there. If that’s the case, don’t be worried that the only women up there are geriatrics. Yes, the lake-going crowd is usually an older bunch, but there are always daughters and granddaughters in their early 20s that may come up to the lake with their families, so don’t fret. Plus, cottage communities around lakes often have community parties, fish fries, or get-togethers, so there will be lots of opportunities to check out what the neighbors have to offer.
Put together hot summer nights, scantily-clad girls in sexy summer dresses and ice-cold sangria and what do you have? An excellent opportunity to meet girls! Outdoor patios are some of the best summertime places to check out girls because it’s basically like going to a bar, but you get to enjoy the nice weather as well. So, get out your linen pants and hit the most popular patio section of your city for a night of drinking and girl-watching. You can be assured that the girls will be in great form and eager to show off their tan lines. But, don’t just be one of those creepy guys who sits in the corner and drinks—introduce yourself to the girl at the table next to yours and who knows where the night will lead?
There’s nothing like sexy rock stars and hot weather to make a girl feel excited. Get tickets to the hottest show in your city this summer (think U2), and you won’t regret it. Concerts are an excellent way to meet people because you already have something in common. Strike up a conversation with the hot chick in the mosh pit and before you know it, you will be bodysurfing your way to her place.
When the boys of summer come out to play, you know that life is good. Get tickets to baseball games this summer and you will be surprised at how many attractive, single girls you will find in the crowd. Plus, it’s easy to strike up a conversation with a girl near you or in the beer or hot dog line because you can ask her about the game. Meeting girls at baseball games is a fun, casual way to start up a summer romance.
Now that you know all of the best places to meet girls in the summertime, stop thinking about it and get out there!
