3. Gyms are great ways to meet singles in Tallahassee

If you already go to the gym, great. If you don’t, here’s our two reasons why you should start going – especially now that you are single:

  • You will get stronger, fitter and healthier – physically and mentally. When we’re talking about love life, working out will give you a big confidence boost which is needed when dating!
  • You will start seeing new people on a regular basis. Sure, you’re there to train like a beast but during your set breaks there’s plenty of time to scan the area for a potential mate.

If you’re not into gym, try some other “social” fitness activities such as yoga (some guys have been spotted at yoga studios too), boxing classes or maybe meditation? Well, you might not want to hit up on a girl when she’s in deep meditation mode (heyy, do you come here often?”). But again, it’s good to get your face out there and maybe get some small talk in here and there.

4. Live music or other nightlife events = great ways to meet singles in Tallahassee

If music is an important part in your life, you should definitely always go out and see your favorite artists play whenever they stop by in Tallahassee.

When you go to a gig, you basically have a concert hall full of your potential soul mates. There’s no need for lame pickup lines because you can just ask something neutral about the show and see if the conversation gets going.

Or if you’re into stand up comedy shows, they are great places to meet especially over 30-year-old singles in Tallahassee. There are not a ton of shows in Tally but keep an eye for the occasional comedy nights at The Junction At Monroe.

Alcohol + jokes = lots of warmed up singles ready to mingle after the show and during the breaks!

5. Cold approaches on the street or in your everyday life

singles tallahasseeIf you are a bit introverted and you find it difficult to approach strangers (with the goal of getting a date) there is a soft way to start:

You don’t have to walk up to strangers with an awkward compliment or pickup line but you can start the training program by going and asking that cute guy or gal a neutral question. Like, “what time is it?” (your phone battery is dead) or “do you know of a nice cafe around here?” – and that’s it. Now repeat this 10 times with 10 different people. You get more confident with enough repetitions and when the chemistry is there, it’s kind of natural to continue the small talk after the first question.. and then get their phone number.

6. Join singles groups in Tallahassee and attend their events

There are some Tallahassee singles groups on Especially for people in their 20s and 30s, there’s a group called “Tallahassee 20s and 30s” which is rather active with different kinds of get togethers.

7. Go to ANY networking events in Tallahassee (expand your social circles)

When you’re single and want to find someone, it’s a good idea to just start socializing with as many new people as possible.

So, just go to any events and start hanging out with new people. It could be attending some courses or classes, political groups, a local charity, sports teams, networking events related to your hobbies and so on..
