Where to Meet Girls?

I remember a few years ago a friend of mine was actively looking for a girlfriend. Nothing wrong with him, nice guy, good job, decent car, okay in the looks department (not Brad Pitt, but still okay). But no girlfriend. And he was tired of not meeting any girls. So he set out to find one. I don’t know the details of how he went about ‘finding’ a girlfriend (with a shovel? A magnet? A Lotus Esprit?) but he DID succeed. The relationship didn’t last long, and about a year or so he was unattached again.

He’ll probably meet more girls if, say, he was selling perfume at the L’Oreal counter at Isetan (and does NOT look gay) he would meet more girls. But he doesn’t work there. So the trick is to be in the RIGHT place to meet girls.

I don’t know where the RIGHT place is, but I do know the WRONG places are. I’ve listed a few for single guys to avoid:

Pasar malam – People go there to buy vegetables, junk food, nail-clippers, cheap watches, toilet slippers, etc. But not to meet girls. The girls will be dressed in their last choice T-shirts (especially those with cheesy cartoons on them) and shorts. They can’t wait to go home to eat/watch VCD/take a bath, and striking up a conversation with a total stranger while carrying 8 plastic bags is not what they have in mind.

Bars and discos – Contrary to popular belief, single Malaysian girls don’t hang out alone at the bar, moping about their break-up or waiting for some nice man to buy them a martini. Girls go with their boyfriends (forget it unless you want to eat knuckles) or go in a large group of girl friends (good luck in separating one from the rest of the giggling crowd). But one day, if you meet a pretty girl sitting alone smiling back at you, try to make sure that ‘she’ has always been a girl first…

Lingerie/Underwear section at the department store –You said go where the girls are, right? Girls are always shopping for underwear, right? Wrong. If a girl sees a guy standing in front of the bra display, it can mean one of three things – One, poor sod is waiting for his wife/girlfriend in the changing room. Two, he’s one of those ah-neh who wears women’s clothes. Three, he’s a pervert ogling at girls’ undies. All not good options.

Lunch time at the office canteen / foodcourt – You might think this is a sure-fire method. However, you’re wrong again. Don’t disturb women when they want to eat. This is really a really important time to them, it maybe the only time they get to eat in a day. Picture this. You’re a girl, standing in line at the chap fan stall, stomach rumbling, trying to finish lunch quickly to rush back to office and finish that report for your boss, and this gawky guy comes up and say, “Have we met somewhere before…?”

  • Hey...don't be so species-ist lah....tell me how I can get a sexy Lotus Elise to fall in love with me...

  • To Simon - But it has been said that Supermarket is a great place to get chicks. But don't show off the half dozen Maggi packs la.

    Diversion of subject - Once I was walking towards Petaling Street, 2 coffin shop workers mouse-whistle me woh. All I could afford was "Choy, Choy!!!"

    To JFE8555 - Think the Iswara should go for Savvy. More ngam la. The Lotus Elise will be more like "Enggang mimpikan pipit". Hee.

  • How about a blog? Sure fire to get the chicks if you blog it right. Need a PR manager, come find me. I can be a ghost blogger too, for the right fee. Wah, that's a good career option hor? You wanna join me? You know those uncles who sat at immigration offices, helping people to fill in forms? Only this is more techie and better Yingrish.

  • Join one of the "meet your perfect partnet" sites on the net. I am not joking. 3 friends met their other half on the net. one got married, one is getting married this month and another later this year.

  • aiseh...the savvy is an equivalent to what you humans call dumb blond lah....

    "damn he's lucky"....


    "damn, that Iswara Aeroback must surely have pistons of gold for that Elise to get with him....

  • Internet. period.

    By Blogger LcF, at 6/08/2005 09:53:00 pm  

  • Yeah, as said by some people, the internet is a good place to meet people you otherwise would not have known in real life. Join some online forums or community and slowly make friends. :) That's how I met my bf.

    It's also good because you can be wearing an ahpek shirt with holey shorts and no one will be the wiser as you flirt on a storm with the other party through MSN :P. Win-win :)

    Just be careful of the buayasla. IRC quite unsafe nowadays.
