Meeting women when opportunities are rare - ARTICLE

Suppose that you are an expat living in a foreign country.

You don't speak the language and you moved to this new city for work.

You feel isolated and your social network is limited to a few married couples.

This is it!

What do youdo?

How do you meet women?

You always have lots of options!

The fact that opportunities are rarer doesn't mean that they are not there!

Can you imagine how much fun it is to walk into a shopping mall and try to say to the girl behind the counter in a language you don't speak that your birthday is on 23rd and that you like chocolate!

Here are some ideas:
  • Learn a few simple teasing sentences and ask girls to correct you! - They love that!
  • Use the net! - I am sure that the city you are in has an expat community - Log in to your facebook, myspace, meetup, tribe or other networking site and start searching for connections.
  • Respond to EVERY invitation even if the event is not too exciting for you - Why? Because you never know who you will meet there.
  • Etc!

You have dozens of strategies you can apply!

The key is to activate your social life and start taking small risks.

No matter how isolated you feel in a new land, the moment you start really looking and MAKE IT YOUR TOP PRIORITY, you will be surprised by how many opportunities appear.

Yes! Make it your top priority.

Thinking about it now and then is not enough!

You need to strategize your social life and follow up on your connections.

Be smart! That one is DEFINITELY within your range!
