Meet at a Volunteer Gig If you're looking for someone with a big heart, go to a place where big-hearted people go: Volunteer at a children's hospital, an environmental cleanup, a Habitat for Humanity build, or a political campaign.Be honest about who you are, about how you will be perceived, and about the kind of person who would appreciate you.

You can go to boutique online dating sites that select for people who want relationships and are so motivated that they will pay premium prices to find them.You probably know some of the more popular ones, but there are smaller, targeted sites you might not have known to try.These give you opportunities to meet people who share your interests.I recently attended a few Read Dating meetings that my local library system sponsored with Perfect Match.com, a site where I serve as a relationship adviser.One of the meetings was poorly attended, but at the other, more than 100 people showed. People sat at tables organized by favorite book or genre. Try going to a small blues or jazz night at a local restaurant.
