How do you have fun without going to the bar?

I don't really like movies, going out to eat is boring, and I love gambling but can't do it. So now what?

  • I wish you luck with this question, and I can't wait to share the responses with my 30yr old daughter. She's single and doesn't know how to meet a guy without going to a bar. She doesn't want to go to a bar to meet him, because then she'll meet a drinker, and her last couple of boyfriends all had drinking issues.

    But here are some of my ideas: Get a club membership. I joined the YMCA, which is cheaper than a health club, but has many of the same benefits. Now I can go swimming, play pickleball, tennis, basketball, or work out on the weight machines, or walk around the track, and I meet people there. I sometimes take classes through community education, which are cheap and interesting. I have a team of dogs, and three seasons of the year I can run them. In winter, with a sled, fall and spring with a cart. There are many dog mushing events, which are a blast to attend! Find an interest, and you'll find fun.

  • Well I like putting puzzles together with my kids. Watching movies with my kids. Going outside and playing ball with my kids. Going bowling with my kids. Going to the park with my kids. Do you notice a trend?

  • Lots of stuff! It really depends on what you have around you. We like to go bowling, go to the driving range or the batting cages, go to the park for a family picnic, sit out by the lake, or have a game or movie night with friends after the kids go to sleep. :)
