Where could I go to meet a decent man?

I haven't been a relationship for a very long time ,because for one thing I'm very shy, for another I was in a very bad relationship for a very long time, and I'm afraid that I will get into a relationship just like the one I got out of.What can I do or where can I go to meet guys that wont be the kind that I got a way from.

  • You could try joining a church. The guys there will be nice and you will have a relationship founded on similar values. But it has to be a church you actually want to join.

  • Have you thought about using an internet dating site? People joke about them all the time, but they really can be useful. My mom met her boyfriend through one and they've been together for about two years now. Think about it - you get to be matched with someone based on their personality, so half of the work's already done!

  • What ever you do don't look for a man online. If a man is so desperate he has to find a woman online something has to be wrong with him.

  • Is there something you would like to learn? I know many folks who had good luck meating someone at clases, like a pottery class, or an art or music, or photography class. This way you can meet somone w/ similar interests, & you'll have plenty of time to talk w/ having the same class to go to every week.

  • I meet great guys all the time through my high school alumni office. I do volunteer work for them and it's great. I also meet nice men at the library where I hang out.

  • I guess I got lucky, I met my husband online 2 years ago. It was totally a chance meeting, we were both in the same chat room, I had never really did much chatting, all he said was "why are you so quiet" then we started chatting. We happened to be from the same area, and we talked every night online for a couple weeks, then he gave me his number, it took me a week to finally get the nerve to call him. Well that was 2 yrs ago, we are married, happy and I have yet to find anything wrong with him.. He was like me, tired of the bar scene, not into church etc.. So don't give up hope, just be careful, no matter where you go. To me bars are full of desperate people so steer clear of them. Goodluck
