New Year, New You: Start Dating Without Online Singles Sites

Every new year is a reason to make resolutions, to think about new projects and to try to be better. It is always a reason to make new friendships. Even the New Year's Party 2019 is a place where you can meet new people. It is why you should think of sending Happy New Year 2019 cards to all your friends, even if this only means to post a greeting card on their Facebook walls.

Subscribing to an online dating site is too much direct, one-to-one, personal contact with virtual strangers for my comfort level. Whether you’re just shy like me or jaded from the online dating scene, there are ways to meet and greet other singles that may be more effective, fun, and comfortable.

Thank You For All The Work And Trust On Us, We Are Looking Forward A New Year Filled With More Work And Opportunities From You. Happy New Year.

If I Could Reach Up And Hold A Star For Every Time You’Ve Made Me Smile, The Entire Evening Sky Would Be In The Palm Of My Hand. Happy New Year.

This Year Would Not Have Been Very Easy Without You Around. Thank You For Always Being There My Love.

Dear New Year, Please Let Me, My Family, My Colleague, My Clients & My Friends Br Just Happy This Time.

I didn’t get out much these past few years. Extended unemployment and caretaking for my elderly parents drained my socializing energy and personal finances. Resolving this New Year to meet new people, make new friends, and begin dating again, these are my action plans:

Vanish Everything That’S Bad, Welcome Everything That’S Good. Wish You A Very Happy New Year 2019.

May Your New Year Dawn Be….Peaceful And Bright. Full Of Hopes And Possibility !

Signup at Meetup.com (it’s for groups and clubs)
It’s a free site for anybody to find and join local groups and clubs. Minimal profile information is required; no need to be witty or pretty to join a meetup group. Search your zipcode and upcoming group events will display. Have a looksee, join groups or not, RSVP to events or not – it’s easy and fun.

Let The Coming Year To Be Glorious One That Rewards All Your Future Endeavors With Success.

Here Wishing You A Happy Prosperous Fun Filled Joyful And Fortunate New Year Ahead.

My area has a wide variety of groups including singles specific, couples only, religious, political, business, and just for fun activity clubs for all like volleyball, softball, hiking, scrapbooking, and card games. Some groups ask for a small annual contribution ($5-ish) after you attend a few of their group events. Some events can be costly, so avoid the day trip excursion clubs if you’re on a budget and opt. for the $5 movie night club instead.

If You Asked Me For My New Year Resolution, It Would Be To Find Out Who I Am.

Learn From Yesterday, Live For Today, Hope For Tomorrow.

Attend Local Interest Club Meetings (look for co-ed groups)
Local newspapers regularly list groups and club meetings and events. Many are singles magnets without being overtly so. Bonsai gardening clubs can be popular with apartment living male and female singles, athletic stores sponsor running and walking clubs, county parks and recreation sponsor co-ed softball teams. Attend at least 1 new meeting or activity a month until you find the right fit for your interests and personality.

This Is A New Year, A New Beginning And Things Will Change.

Everyday Is A New Opportunity To Have A Fresh Start. Happy New Year 2019.

Join LinkedIn.com (it’s for career connections and events)
It’s not just for the unemployed or those seeking a better job. Connecting with others in the work and business world, without the Facebook (too)personal journals, is a great way to build a professional singles network without being blatently obvious online. There’s an option to display your marital status on your profile page. Ask your friends and family to forward a profile if they notice somebody single that you might like.

Join groups, follow employers, connect with everybody you know whether single or married. Include coworkers, former coworkers, friends, neighbors, high school and college alumni to build your network. Participate in group discussions and “Like” or “Share” others updates to see and be seen. Write a recommendation for a former coworker that is looking for work. Use the free events app to find local professional networking events to attend and meetup with other potential singles.

Volunteer for a Charity Event (look for public event opportunities)
Charities are always in need of volunteers. Pet rescue groups need foster homes and helpers at public adopt-a-thons. Walk-a-thons and bike-a-thons need volunteer helpers as well as participants. VolunteerMatch.org listed 91 opportunities in my area. What a great way to help others and meet new friends (and potential dates).

Getting out of the house, away from the computer, and attending meetings or events is a much more comfortable way for me to make new friends and get to know potential dates (before an actual date) with minimal pressure. Have any other non-online-dating-site ideas? Feel free to share them in the comments section below.

It does not hurt to send a Happy New year 2019 message to someone you didn't contact for a long time. What better reason to share a few nice words with a dear friend than the new year? 31 December is the day in which we leave the old grumpiness and everything that was bad in 2018 to wait the new year with a completely different mood. New year greeting cards are the best way to do that, as your mood is given by the happiness of the people you surround yourself with.
