Ask the Lazy Girl: Boys, Boys, Boys
Dear Lazy Girl,
What advice do you have for single Lazy Girls looking for a guy?
That College Girl
Dear That College Girl,
This is a great question! As we all know, it's tough out there in the dating world. And while you'll occasionally hear an adorable story about a couple that met at a farmer's market or spin class or something, the reality is that it's not that easy to fall into your own little rom-com.
Luckily, technology is here for us Lazy Girls. You can now find a man without leaving the comfort of your blanket cocoon thanks to Tinder, Grouper, OKCupid, etc, etc. I can't make you any guarantees about the quality of guys you'll be virtually "meeting," but swiping left and right is at least something to entertain you while you wait in line at the grocery store. There's something to be said for sifting through dozens of available men while you watch OITNB with your roommate and eat egg rolls.
If you're feeling especially motivated to shed your lazy skin and really get out there and meet a better quality of dudebro than can be found in the abyss of dating apps, consider hitting up events/places you like where you might meet someone of similar interests. It's not that much work, since you're frequenting places you would anyway, and it's better than getting a gym membership you don't want just to impress some guys in tank tops. So if you like books? Scope out males at your favorite bookstores. A big fan of baseball? Watch a game at a bar where other like-minded fans might strike up a conversation.
Best of luck on your man hunt!
