Love your column. Often you get questions on how to meet people/find partners, and you respond, "Get out of the house, go to the gym, volunteer." Here's one activity you haven't mentioned: sign up for dance lessons, e.g., salsa, swing, tango, ballroom, etc. It's not hard to find a dance studio that offers group lessons, and partners aren't required. Anyone can join a class. A group dance class will expose you to many people and put them right in your arms as an introduction. I can't think of a better way to meet people. I'm a straight guy who met his last six girlfriends—the latest at nine years and counting—in dance classes. I honestly wouldn't know what to do at a bar. Obviously, partner dance isn't for everyone, but skeptics might be surprised. It's a pretty great environment, and people seem at ease because everyone is focused on having fun.
