“If you go to the same bar with the same friend all the time, you’re less likely to branch out and meet more friends or meet a potential partner,” Harwick says.“Studies show that increasing the variety of both your social scenes, social partners, and social places results in an increased opportunity to meet both romantic and platonic partners.” So branch out.

While online dating used to be considered an odd way of meeting people, it seems like the script has flipped: Meeting people in the real world is the thing that’s most head-scratching. That’s because physicality can help you figure out whether or not there are sparks — or if the hot human sitting across from you is a total dud.“Friend referrals are a great way to meet people,” Harwick says.Chances are if you and your friend share some common interests, their pals also share some of those same interests.
