Anywhere but bars and clubs! A recent study found that only 8% of new marriages came as a result of a couple meeting at a bar, club or other social event – pretty alarming statistics considering that these establishments are usually the first point of call for singles searching for a soul mate.
When you think about it, the numbers do make sense. Make a list of every truly happy couple you know.

The point is, the couples that we both love and envy always have a story about how they first met.
Some of the more underrated places to meet singles include; networking events, specialist classes (e.g. dance, yoga, cooking) and my personal favourite, mixed team sports.
