LA is a rough place to be if you’re dating. One of the most common dating issues in Los Angeles is the lack of a social network. In fact, this is probably the biggest problem. Without a substantial network, your prospects can seem pretty bleak.
Popular nightclubs and bars in LA may attract a lot of singles, but there are barriers to entry. Generally, people in LA are very busy. They are overly self-aware. The good news is that you can avoid common pitfalls by adopting an unconventional approach to dating. We share the details in this article.
Meet People Through Mutual Friends
Meeting people through existing friends is very smart. As a member of the “group”, you come with pre-approval. You’ll be favored over a stranger any day. If a friend invites you to a party, go even if you don’t feel like it. Go to at least one of those pesky Facebook events. Use your friend network to meet people.
When you go to an event, make having a good time your top priority. Don’t focus on meeting someone. People are attracted to those who know how to have fun. In the worst-case scenario, you’ll have enjoyed yourself.
