Bored of being single in Boston already? Wanna kick singledom in the butt?!
Boston is a big city and it’s PACKED with hot Boston singles.
The reason you’ve not met anyone yet? It’s probably because you haven’t been to the right places or done the right things.
But it’s okay because Datermeister has got you covered:
In this guide, we take a look at the 7 best places to meet singles in Boston so that you can say “adios!” to your single status in no time.
1. Best nightclubs for Boston Singles
If you’re a bit of a mover who loves a dance, you need to hit the club scene.
From now on, though, it’s time to forget getting wasted and falling out of a club at 4am. From now on, your mission is to meet someone new.
So don’t get too drunk. Get tipsy enough to dance but stay in control so that you can chat, finesse and get that sexy someone’s number.
Here are the top 2 nightclubs for singles in Boston:
Royale (279 Tremont St, Boston, MA 02116) : Royale is heaving at the weekends with hot singles who want a good time – and possibly something more. The great thing is that, after you’ve paired off with someone, you can ask them if they want to cool down with you on one of the VIP balconies. Sure, going all VIP will cost you a bit extra, but it’s guaranteed to impress someone.
Phoenix Landing (512 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139) : This popular Boston sports bar turns into a nightclub after dark. Its 80s nights are especially great for Boston singles over 40, but anyone of any age can have lots of fun here.
Whichever club you go to, keep an open mind, keep dancing – and keep smiling. No one wants to dance with a downer stood alone in the corner! 😉
2. Best Bars in Boston For Singles:
Not got any dancing shoes? Got two left feet instead? No worries – just hit the Boston bar scene.
In fact, bars are some of the best places to meet singles in Boston. There are lots of them and there are always sexy men and women having a drink. All you’ve got to do is catch the eye of someone you like, and have the courage to go over and ask them if they want a drink.
Here are the 2 best bars in Boston for singles:
Corner Pub (162 Lincoln St, Boston, MA 02111) : Situated on a corner, the Corner Pub is down-to-earth, spacious and super chill. It’s not too loud at all and it’s very spacious, which makes it a great spot to meet someone new and get chatting. And, hey, if you two get along, why not order one of the MASSIVE burgers that the kitchen whips up?
The Hawthorne (500A Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215) : It looks like a hotel-come-living room, and it’s got the perfect vibe for catching someone’s eye. It sells craft cocktails, has a modernist feel to it, and is popular with 20-30 year olds. The Hawthorne also offers outdoor seating – essential for getting to know someone when things are getting too loud indoors.
3. Concerts or Stand-up Comedy Shows Are Especially Some of the Best Places to Meet Singles in Boston
Fancy combining meeting someone new with a gig?
Or how about laughing at some jokes with a fellow sexy singleton who just happens to be sat next to you?!
Concerts and stand-up shows can help you kill two birds with one stone – you get to go out with your pals and have a good time, and there’s every chance you might meet someone new.
The best thing about a concert is that all you really need to do is catch someones eye, dance with them and then buy them a drink. Once the show is over, ask if they fancy a chat at the bar.
From now on, keep your eye out for local gig listings and use concerts as a chance to meet someone.
Comedy shows are also some of the best places to meet singles in Boston. Nothing loosens people up more than alcohol and some funny jokes! Even if you don’t smoke, it’s a good idea to step into the smoking area during intermissions and strike up new conversations.
Here are 2 of the best comedy clubs in Boston:
Nick’s Comedy Club (100 Warrenton St, Boston, MA 02116) : Nick’s Comedy Club is pretty much a Boston institution. This place has been making people laugh since 1977 – and who’s to say it can help you fall in love, too?
It’s only open at the weekends, but it’s a great place to have a laugh with your friends. And if you make a connection with a hot single, it’s win-win. Moreover, it’s located in one of the best Boston neighbourhoods for singles.
Improv Asylum (216 Hanover St, Boston, MA 02113) : We won’t lie – Improv Asylum gets loud. But the best thing is that it’s such an intimate setting that there’s every chance you’ll be sat right next to a sexy single. All you’ve gotta do is wait for the right moment to say hi (usually after a very funny performance).
4. Best ways to meet Boston singles ONLINE?
As well as clubs, bars, comedy shows and concerts, make the most of the time when you’re indoors, too. How? With the best dating sites in Boston.
Online dating has done well to shed the stigma that hung around it a few years back. In 2018, serious men and women now use dating sites to meet new romantic partners.
That said, Tinder is doing all it can to give online dating a bad name again. If you want to play “games” with people who have no intention of meeting you, give Tinder a shot.
Want to actually meet someone instead? Try these 2 sites:
- Match.com: Datermeister loves Match.com because you get to ask a series of questions to someone before you engage in a proper conversation. This lets you know how genuine they are, and whether you’re a match or not. Match is probably the best dating site in the USA for singles of all ages and backgrounds.
- EliteSingles.com: If you’re serious about your career, and/or you’d love to meet someone highly educated, try Elite Singles. It’s for the more mature, sophisticated, smart, serious – and sexy – among us.
But wait a second! What if you want some Jewish singles in Boston instead? Or perhaps some Catholic singles in Boston? Match and EliteSingles allow you to refine your search so that you can find whoever you want – even Christian singles in Boston are on there!
Whichever site you join, make sure to add at least 3 pictures (including a full body shot) and a short but eye catching bio.
5. Gyms Are Great Places to Meet Boston Singles
Want to get toned and meet someone at the same time?
It would be awesome if you could work out with another sexy single – and that’s what you can do if join a gym!
Naturally, not all gym goers are single. But once you start going to a gym regularly, you’ll soon get to know a few faces. Pretty soon, you can strike up conversation and find out who’s available.
Even if you don’t meet anyone right away, a gym is a great place to go to build up your confidence. Get toned, lose weight and feel better about yourself! In the long run, this will make you more attractive to fellow singles in Boston.
6. Boston Singles Events – Or Any Kind of Networking Events
Always been too nervous to try speed dating? Don’t be. Speed dating is a great way to meet lots of singles in one night. It puts you in front of 10+ singles one by one and you’ve got about 3 minutes to find out if you’re a match.
It’s so much more efficient than getting to know someone online, only to then meet in person and discover there’s no chemistry!
Have a few drinks, be positive, smile, bring your best jokes – and just enjoy yourself.
Other than speed dating, check apps like Meetup.com to see what other Boston singles meetup events are happening in your area.
Don’t just stick to singles events, though. Try any kind of networking event! The more people you meet, the bigger your social circle will grow. Because so many people still meet through friends, a bigger social circle increases the odds of you being introduced to someone you like.
7. Learn a new skill (while meeting people with the same interests) or do “hobby dates”
Lastly, it’s time to stop studying at home and time to start heading out to learn.
If there’s a new skill you’ve wanted to master for so long, the best way to stop procrastinating is to combine it with finding someone new.
Want to learn how to paint, cook, sew, code, and find love? Join a class where you’ll meet like-minded people who might just be as single and as eager to meet someone new as you.
It’s time to stop feeling sorry for yourself and time to take action. From now on, do what it takes to meet fellow Boston singles. Hit the bars and clubs, the concert halls and the comedy shows.
Join a gym, get in shape, and network like you’ve never networked before!
As long as you’re positive, you can do this!
