The Science Fiction Book Club meets in central London on the 2nd & 4th Mondays of the month & is open to Men & Women who enjoy discussing the themes & issues found in Science Fiction Novels.
We read,meet & discuss character-led Sci-Fi novels for grown-ups at the more literate end of Science Fiction spectrum. Anything from Atwood to Zelazny that helps us become 'Well Read in SF'.

Plug in your city name or zip code, and then some keywords of things you are interested in, and join activity groups (that also attract at least some women) that you could enjoy no matter who is there. Don't pick "lonely singles" groups, either. Go for "science fiction book clubs" or yoga or beginning dance classes or clubs that enjoy going to restaurants and sampling new foods, so the emphasis is NOT on potential dates but on enjoyable activities.

It'd be nice if awesome candidates with great personalities were readily available, but the fact is there aren't many at any age, and they do tend to get snapped up pretty quick. you're still quite young yet. be patient.
and search the places the right kinds of girls seem to gravitate to, if possible and practical. bear in mind, if you want, say, the kind of great geeky girls who hang out at comics conventions, they'll be vastly outnumbered by the geeky guys and have their pick if they're not already taken. maybe try science fiction book clubs instead to get a better ratio
I got a Dianectics book to sell ya....2006-05-12 14:10:44 by whatyousaid
Ayn Rand was not the first to propound an ethics for the masses based on survival as a rational being. That honor goes to fellow novelist and cult leader L Ron Hubbard (1911-1986), the science-fiction writer who founded Dianetics and the Church of Scientology. Dianetics preceded NBI's start-up by eight years and the Objectivist ethics by 11 years. Dianetics groups formed on campuses during the 1950's, much as Ayn Rand clubs would in the 1960's. Many who flocked to Objectivism in the 1960's had previously had some contact with Dianetics or Scientology. Dianetics used reasoning somewhat similar to Rand's about the brain as a machine

Yes, I have tried drama and arts classes before, on more than one occasion. The problem there is that
1. I don't have much interest in the arts
2. You pay $200 or whatever for a class, and then you're stuck with the same group of people with whom you may not have anything in common.
I'd look for free activities with large, changing audiences.
I could look again into book clubs. My interests in books (science, computers) attract very few women though. I have tried forcing myself to read the fiction stuff that women want, but since I'm just not into it, end up making faux paus comments that offend the women.
