Got Plans? Redux: Did It Hurt When You Fell From Heaven?

By Julia Beizer

Yesterday's discussion touched on one of my favorite topics here in town: How to meet new people.

Single Girls Everywhere...: My friends and I are late-20s early 30s and single. Once we find a bar to meet quality men, what do you recommend as a conversation starter? There has to be something better than "come here often?" or "sure is getting cold!" Any ideas?

Fritz gave an answer and readers chimed in with a bunch of helpful solutions. Read the transcript for the full conversation. A few good responses came in after the chat closed. Here they are:

Washington, D.C.: I'm glad you're posting these conversation starters; I wish people would use them with me! If I'm not being hissed at, one gem I got was "Hey, you have any kids?"

Columbia Heights: Wait, girls actually approach guys? I guess I've been hanging out at the wrong bars...

Got some good conversation starters to add? Let us know in the comments below. Also, be sure to hit us up for next week's chat.

I find it interesting that they're assuming the only place to find "quality" men is in bars....

in dc the **smile** and "so where are you from?" works like a charm. people are from all over the world here, and most times always enthusiastic and nostalgic about their home town. people love to tell you about what it's like "back home". Worked for me...been dating my bf for almost a year!
