The best places to meet women in cities?

The best place to meet single women in cities is to find the top Instagram photo locations.

Since Instagram has become a craze worldwide, women flock to these locations to take pictures.

Therefore in these areas, you will find women from all over the globe drinking coffee, eating food and taking photos.

Instagram hotspots

For example, here are the top three Instagram photo hotspots in London:

  • Tower Bridge

You can go on either side of Tower Bridge, and you will find there are always tourists taking photos with the amazing backdrops there, which makes it easy to start a conversation.

  • View from the Shard

If you go to the top of The Shard, you will meet lots of different people on holiday or touring. Again, it is an easy location to initiate conversations with women.

  • Piccadilly Circus

Passing by Piccadilly Circus at any time in the year, people take photos even in the rain or freezing temperatures.

Approaching women

In my experience, it is one thing to know where to meet women and another to have the courage to start a conversation.

Almost all men have anxiety over approaching and engaging attractive women in conversation.

I have created the following infographic guide to help you approach women in these locations. You can also read my approach anxiety article to learn more about how to tackle this issue.

The best places to meet women for free?

The best places to meet women for free in London are art galleries, museums and historical buildings.

Places of culture attract women from all over the globe and students and women on day trips.

So you will find many single women, and if you know the areas, this presents the perfect opportunity to go on some instant dates.

Art galleries

My personal favourite art gallery is the Tate Modern Art Gallery. The Tate is a wonderful gallery right in the heart of London. Irrespective of the fantastic artwork, it is worth visiting as the building is colossal and unique.

You will find plenty of opportunities to meet women of different nationalities and many chances to start conversations in the gallery, outside the gallery or in the foyer where people tend to congregate.

Additionally, on the 10th floor of the Blavatnik building, a viewing platform overlooks all of London. This viewing platform attracts many people who go there to take their photos with the incredible backdrop of London and the Thames river.

Free gallery tours

Going on free gallery tours in the Tate Modern or any gallery in the world is a great idea.

There are so many opportunities to meet women on the tour and refine your conversation skills.

Imagine after the tour you meet a girl outside; you are now equipped to talk about the artwork in the gallery (which, if you do not know, is highly alluring to cultured women).

First date location

If you meet a girl in the vicinity of the art gallery, you can also go on an instant date together to one of the tours.

This is one of the best first dates that you can go on with women because you are:

  • Doing something cultural
  • Demonstrating intelligence
  • Sharing a memorable experience together

Please look at my infographic underneath to gain some other great first date tips that will help make any date dynamic and fun. You can also read my first date tips article to learn more about dating strategies.

The best places to meet women during the day?

The best places to meet women during the day are city squares, where people tend to spend time hanging out and soaking up the atmosphere.

A great example of a city square is Trafalgar Square in London. Trafalgar Square is one of the most bustling locations in London that draws many people.

There are always women who take their photos outside and then go into the National Gallery.

City squares

City squares are great places to meet women when the sun is out, as the vibe is incredible. Buskers and street performers contribute to a dynamic and friendly mood, making it an ideal place to start conversations with women.

I recall coaching a 28-year-old client of mine three years ago. He was terrific at meeting women in the evening and social environments, yet he had never approached a girl during the day. This was an easy fix: I took him to Trafalgar square and taught him to ask girls to take a photo of him – which is an easy way to start a conversation with any woman. I then instructed him on a few simple strategies to keep the conversation flowing naturally. From this simple starting point, he was able to go on three coffee dates in a row to the Cafe Nero opposite Trafalgar square.

I have created the infographic guide below to give you more ways to approach women during the day. You can also read my how to approach women article, outlining how to implement each approach.

The best places to meet foreign women?

The best place to meet foreign women is by taking a city tour.

In most European cities, a lot of the tours are free. You simply donate what you want at the end.

There is an abundance of tours to choose from in London, including walking, open bus tours and ghost tours.

City tours

In addition to absorbing the area’s culture, you will find that many female tourists take part.

Soaking up the information from the tour offers you other advantages as you can take a woman on a first or second date to the exact location with yourself acting as the tour guide.

Being articulate and knowledgable in this way conveys attractive qualities to women.

Social opportunities

Additionally, once you have acquired the information from the tour, you can use it on a date or when you meet more people. This again adds to your conversation skills and makes you a more interesting and attractive man.

As well as being an excellent opportunity to meet women, a bonus of a city tour is that the local guy or the girl hosting the tour can often give you information on any events taking place in the city that night.

You may even find that you get invited to meet up with people later in the evening. To help you navigate approaching and speaking to women in an evening scenario, I have designed the below infographic. You can also read my how to approach a girl at a bar step-by-step guide.

The best places to meet loads of women?

The best place to meet loads of women is to visit the various vintage markets in a city.

These are always bustling and draw in lots of locals and visitors from around the world.

In fact, the markets in London are a great location to meet women of different nationalities all year round.

City markets

One of my favourites is Spitalfields Market. It has all manner of food, clothing and other odds and ends.

It is a covered market, so a great place to go and meet women when it is raining.

Another great market is Camden Market, a sizable market with a lot of foot traffic. The food there is exceptional, particularly its designated outdoor food court that serves food from worldwide.

Food markets

Indeed, food markets offer another excellent opportunity to meet women. On weekends, especially on Sundays, everyone tends to convene at the food markets.

For example, Brick Lane Market is a famous trendy market that draws in groups of women.

In my experience, weekend food markets are:

  • Bustling and sociable places
  • Ideal opportunities to meet women
  • A great way to spend your weekend

So look up what is going on at the weekend in your resident city or the city you will visit. You can then begin to plan your weekend around this, as these events offer various opportunities to meet women during the day.
