The workplace probably isn’t the first place you think about when it comes to finding Mr. Right, and for good reason. Sometimes it’s against company policy to date co-workers. That said, if it isn’t against company policies, there are few better places to find a guy to date than right there at the workplace.

8. Invest in a Hobby or Two

Investing in a hobby or two in your 30s is a great idea. Not only do said hobbies give you something to keep your creativity and critical thinking skills flowing and growing, it also gives you an excuse to go out and meet like-minded guys.

9. Attend Events You Have to Dress Up for

Whether it’s alumni events, fancy parties, or something to do with your hobby, attend as many events as possible that you have to dress up for. If you want to catch a guy’s attention, what better way to do so than by dressing up and flashing him those big doe eyes?
