6 dating apps installed, over 100 Instagram pictures liked, and multiple Facebook pokes sent with no response? Perhaps it’s time for a change of tactics. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, perhaps it's wiser to set your sights on next year.
This leaves you time to meet a ton of new people by joining a social sports team, sign up for a class or join a Meetup group. Check out some of our suggestions for finding that special someone for Valentine’s day 2018.
Social Sports League
Social sports leagues such as NY Urban, NYC Footy, and Better Off Bowling are structured in a way that young, fun professionals in their 20s and 30s can meet once or twice a week to play sport and socialize. Better Off Bowling runs super social coed bowling leagues across the country that involve inter-team trivia, bar games, and competitions that get everyone talking and mingling! Although you may not exactly be looking for a marriage proposal, these sports leagues have seen their fair share of matchmaking as the story below demonstrates

Sign Up for A-Class
Being a ‘Yes Man’ is key to meeting people, putting yourself out of your comfort zone, and trying new and random things that you may not have before. New York, or any major US city, has an abundance of cheap or free classes that young singles can sign up for that don’t necessarily ask for a big commitment or investment. Class Pass, for example, gives you access to thousands of fitness classes to try around the city and has an introductory offer of $19 for new users which lets you trial their base membership for a month.
People use Meetup to organize meetings for every interest under the sun – from French language classes and football supporter gatherings to specific meetups for singles living in an area looking to meet someone. Whatever your interests, you are sure to find something that tickles your fancy. These Meetups are about socializing first and foremost so are a great way of meeting people if you’re new to a city or if you just want to try something new and different!
