For more specific preferences and needs, you may want to look for someone online, or through friends.
Online dating can be particularly effective when you are geographically or socially isolated - or when partners that fit your preference are in short supply.
As the research indicates, there are a number of successful places and ways to meet people.
Therefore, how and where to meet women or men may depend on your own relationship goals, needs, and preferences. For long-term relationships, you may want to look to meet someone during your daily life - particularly through a religious, spiritual, or educational activity.
Religious and spiritual compatibility may also reduce the likelihood of cheating and infidelity.
Such relationships may require self-introductions though. As a result, you may have to overcome anxiety, learn to break the ice, and ask for what you want (even indirectly), to begin an interaction.
The rest (~30%) meet through some part of their daily lives - church, family, neighborhood, work, or school.
A bit more than 20% meet in bars or restaurants, with another 20% or so finding a partner online.
Particularly, couples who meet in their daily lives, especially through church and school, are more satisfied with their relationships and less likely to break up than couples meeting other ways.
This was supported by earlier surveys, which also found short-term and sexual relationships more likely to be started under the opposite meeting conditions - usually bars and restaurants (Laumann, Gagnon, Michael, & Michaels, 1994).
Specifically, long-term relationships are often found with others who are focused on similar long-term religious, spiritual, or educational activities in their daily lives.
In contrast, short-term and sexual relationships can best be found with others who have such immediate excitement and pleasure on their mind - usually in the nightlife of bars, clubs, and restaurants.This may help to increase the satisfaction and longevity of the relationship.
