Get to know men: Check out popular flirt spots

Men. Never there when you need them. For example, to flirt. Are you also looking? You are not alone there. It feels like all people are looking for love, most of them on the internet. It is not only felt that the number of digitally found partnerships has skyrocketed in recent years. Over 40 percent of Germans believe that they can find love online.

But not all women feel comfortable online flirting. Often, you spend a lot of time searching and chatting, only to find out on the first date that it just doesn't work. That is why many would like to give "real life" a chance and get to know someone in "real" places (although the network has long been our reality, just not touchable).

What are good places to meet men?

Ultimately, of course, you can do it anywhere, even on the bus or at the weekly market. But of course there are places that are more predestined for this than others. Good prerequisites are: a non-stressful situation, similarities and the opportunity to speak, preferably all at once. This eliminates a few things, but there are still countless possibilities. In order to bring about the right situation in a targeted manner, there are certain places that offer greater opportunities than others.

The best flirting tips for women

That is why we have collected the best places to get to know and rated them according to their advantages and disadvantages. So, you can definitely meet men here:

How do I get to know someone in the club or in the pub?

Just go in and look around. Whether a cozy corner pub or hip clubs: for many, the crackling factor is still the highest when going out. As before, those who are still single storm onto the dance floors and to the counters of the nation. Sure, with the exuberant atmosphere, the opportunity to dance or (initially without obligation) to have a drink, the flirtation factor is of course particularly high.

In the evening at the bar of a quiet club, deep conversations quickly turn into deep looks.

Which guys do you meet here?

Basically through the row, depending on which bar or club you're going to, more soulbrother, techno-Jünger or bar-Jürgen. And this is exactly where the decisive advantage lies. With the pre-reading, so to speak. Are you looking for something down-to-earth to snuggle up to? Well, then off to the cozy party bar with table football and couch. You want a styler who likes crazy music and moves well with it? Then off to an appropriate club! The more mainstream the store, the broader the audience, the more pointed the offer, the more specific the visitors.

Advantages?

Relaxed atmosphere, (if you're lucky) good music, a nice drink in hand, the perfect conditions for a nice chat, right? So you can test his social behavior in public right away. Is he funny, is he listening, does he have something to say? Does he keep looking into the clipping of the waitress while talking to you?

Disadvantage?

Most of the time it is too loud, often too crowded and too busy for a first conversation. You yell and yell against the loud music until not only your eardrum but also your nerves are on the verge of breaking. Programmed misunderstandings. Getting to know each other in the club usually requires another meeting in order to have a quiet chat. And that's exactly why you should swap numbers at the first meeting, if you don't go on a nightcap.

5 boring flirting tips that always work

What is the advantage of falling in love with a group of friends?

The buddy from the buddy is still a hot candidate for the dream man post. In surveys, women are regularly the best opinion that their own circle of friends has a fairly high potential for flirting. The reason is obvious: Friends are a good filter for good character traits, as they often overlap in sympathy. And for private occasions such as parties or dinners, there are always points of contact and common themes.

Still one of the best, because most familiar, "places" for a flirt: the circle of friends.

Which guys do you meet here?

For the reasons mentioned, naturally more of those that you probably like. Otherwise they wouldn't be your friends after all. So not a bad starting point. In addition: There is no more informal and innocuous way to get to know someone and feel more closely than in your own circle of friends.

Advantages?

The friends of our friends are naturally nice. Sure, there are always exceptions. You can also be sure: your friends will like him.

Disadvantage?

First of all, of course, you don't have the very large and varied range here. In addition, the matter becomes all the more hairy when love breaks, then usually the whole circle of friends suffers. This can quickly lead to a scramble as to who is actually on whose side. But of course that shouldn't prevent you from taking another closer look at your best friend's new colleague.

The absolute most annoying dating trends

Is it okay to fall in love at work?

Of course, it always happens. It is not surprising why so many people still fall in love in the company or in the company. You spend a lot of time there, and there you often meet people with similar interests, with whom you have many points of contact.

Of course, nobody can really advise you to go flirting in the office, as this can lead to difficulties. It is also considered unprofessional by some. But when it does, you don't have to deny it.

There is flirtation in the company too, but this is seen by some as unprofessional.

Which guys do you meet here?

From the lively accountant to the attractive IT specialist to the casual boss, everything is here.

Advantages?

If you hang around with your colleagues every day, you quickly get to know their amiable sides, but also the quirks. Knowing the latter at an early stage certainly doesn't hurt. Plus: everyday life can be easily planned and coordinated together. There is also a great mutual understanding of everything that happens in the company. Trouble with the boss? Excited about the stupid HR department? Nobody can understand you better now than your lover from the office next door.

Disadvantage?

A lot of the time that you spend in the same building with your favorite person you have to work and concentrate on other things than their beautiful eyes. The same applies here as in the circle of friends: When love goes, it becomes difficult to get out of the way. But we don't have to explain that to you, do we?

"How was your insider tip for the lunch break again?"

That's how you make a nice compliment

Can I fall in love at the gym or at the sports club?

Absolutely, of course. There is a lot going on between the weight bench and the volleyball net. Going man-made in the gym is not uncommon. The only important thing is that you don't disturb anyone during training.

Which guys do you meet here?

Sporty, one might assume. And if you belong to the sporty squad yourself, that means: like-minded people. These are certainly not the worst conditions.

In the gym, a flirtation is less useful during acute training, more afterwards or during breaks.

Advantages?

You definitely already have a common hobby. In any case, the chance of meeting someone here who jogs with you through the city park on the weekend instead of bumbling on the couch is pretty high.

Disadvantage?

Attention! Some men just want to exercise in peace and at best flirt with their reflection in the mirror during the biceps curls. In addition, you should perhaps only start something with very confident candidates so that you don't have to change gyms to avoid meeting him again.

"Would you like to share a shake after you shower?"

Can I find love in an exhibition?

But how painted! Of course, museums or exhibitions are not the best place to find Mr. Right. But the potential is not to be despised: the tranquility, the beautiful surroundings, the museum café ...!

Which guys do you meet here?

Beauty spirits, free thinkers and true friends of art, probably no party animals. Certainly a cliché, but not that absurd either.

In a gallery or in a museum you have to flirt very quietly, but you will meet people with the same interests.

Advantages?

Common interests if you like art. It's best to make the next date clear right away, in the style of: "Have you seen the XY retrospective? It must be incredibly beautiful!"

Disadvantage?

Pssst! You can only approach the object of your desire in a whisper. Although that can also be quite erotic. And besides, as I said, the museum café still remains!

Best first sentence

"I could watch that for hours too." (whispered in front of a masterpiece)

Is it love or just a bed story? A check

How durable is a vacation flirt?

Love needs a vacation after all! For many people, vacations are still the best way to get to know men. Pool parties, beach feeling, a lot of bare skin and delicious drinks, relaxed mood, mutual back lotion? Yes, everyone is relaxed, sexy and in a good mood 24/7 anyway. It's not at all surprising that the chances of flirting are increasing here.

Which guys do you meet here?

It all depends on the type of vacation you choose. Kitesurfing in Hawaii, a party vacation at Malle, a cultural trip through Rome or a mountain hike through Nepal? So many possibilities with many options ...

Still one of the most popular opportunities to flirt: vacation.

Advantages?

On vacation everyone is usually relaxed, open and radiates it. Getting to know someone during this time is generally easier. So why not take advantage of that too?

Disadvantage?

It's just vacation, not everyday life. Fate brings you both together in the Bahamas and after 3 weeks of being in love he has to go back to Cologne-Porz and you to Buxtehude? Then the long-distance relationship begins, and that is not every woman's thing.

On vacation, people like to joke about real life in a similar way to the Internet. He tells you about his chic dental practice in Blankenese, swears eternal loyalty to you under the palm trees and is actually divorced 3 times, has 4 children with 3 women and lives with his mom. So: Better google "Dentist Blankenese" first.

Best first sentence

"I would love to stay here forever. You too?"

Can I fall in love at a concert or festival?

But of course! Quite a few women prefer to poke, swear or headbang into the hearts of men or let it happen the other way around.

Which guys do you meet here?

The ones who like the same music as you. And wild dances, parties, mud and Dixie toilets. Sounds good doesn't it?

Advantages?

Roar along to the favorite song of your favorite band and let yourself be carried away by the atmosphere. Is there a better starting point for a love story?

Disadvantage?

Try to find the guy in the crowd again after the concert.

Best first sentence

"Didn't YOU stumble past our tent yesterday singing?"

Is the supermarket a suitable place to flirt?

Why not? Motto: Amore at the cheese counter! Of course, people don't go to the supermarket to flirt, but it's worth opening your eyes there, especially if you're in your own neighborhood.

You don't have to yell right away: "A quarter pound of minced meat and that crunchy guy over there in front of the salami display, please!" But there should actually be people who met their great love in the supermarket.

Have you been "hosted"? That is why he no longer reports

Which guys do you meet here?

Pretty much everyone who doesn't get the fridge refilled by mom or girlfriend. Say: Household self-employed! Of course, you can regulate the clientele a little according to (presumed) income via the price range (discount store or gourmet market), if you want.

Flirting is not often done in the supermarket, but it is not completely absurd.

Advantages?

At first you have a reasonably calm environment. Then the opportunity to join the conversation in a harmless manner. For example, you can ask him to hand you something from the upper shelf (only if it is big enough, of course).

You can also see who you have in front of you based on their purchases. Rollmops from a can, bag of chips with cheese dip and 2 bottles of Jägermeister? Rather not! He's buying diapers and baby food? He has other worries. In his basket are feta cheese, salad, turkey breast and a good wine? Not uninteresting.

Disadvantage?

Not everyone is in flirt mode when shopping. With men in particular, one hears again and again that the situation is completely overwhelming and traumatizing them. In this respect: composure!

Best first sentence

"Can you recommend the sea salt (olive oil, craft beer) that you have in the car?"

You can have a good flirt almost anywhere if you keep your eyes open. But different places offer different options for different tastes.
