If dating or marrying someone who has the same religious or spiritual beliefs is important to you (or even a deal-breaker), find a place that will help you find that person.
A quick search like “religious organizations near me” should help.
It doesn’t cost any money and shouldn’t be embarrassing to ask for their help.
Plus, they know you and what you’re looking for in a date, so they’ll be able to find that right person, taking the hard work off your shoulders.
Now that I’ve given you 7 ideas for where to meet local singles (for free, too), all you have to do is choose the one that works best for you and head out the door.
“House of Cards” will still be there when you get home!
It’s easier to start a conversation with someone and eventually ask them out if you’re both in the middle of doing something that reflects your similar views on life.
The best place to find these local groups is Meetup.com, whose whole goal is to bring neighbors together “to learn something, do something, share something.” Just like the dating sites, Meetup lets you pick your preferred location and activity, so you can narrow the search down as much as you want.
Not only does the site have the specific search filters you’re looking for, but it also has features like being able to see who’s online now.
Zoosk is the best app to meet local singles in my opinion, particularly because it’s integrated with Facebook.
You also get to do something nice for your community, and who doesn’t love that? You could spend a Saturday at your local Humane Society helping dogs and cats find their forever home — while also interacting with the people looking to adopt and those who work there.
If you’re passionate about LGBT activism, organizations like The Human Rights Campaign hold fundraisers and rallies all the time.
