And why shouldn't be these the first places that come to mind? After all, we've been bombarded by images of hot and available women packing themselves like lemmings into these watering holes.
Check out any movie within the last few decades that involves meeting women - it isn't rare to come across the typical scene featuring the suave leading man offering his lady a drink.
Like clockwork, they hit it off so well that they end up talking forever until said woman asks her man to come up to her place for "a cup of coffee".
Sounds familiar, right?
In real life, it is possible to meet hot women in such places. Admittedly, there are circumstances specific to bars and nightclubs that can give you an edge.
For instance, everyone is in "party mode", meaning women will be more open to talking to complete strangers. Booze also helps people loosen up and be more sociable.
However, you should also consider that these are the same reasons why you shouldn't pin all your hopes of meeting women on these places.
When women go to these venues, it's possible that their behavior won't necessarily reflect their everyday attitude (which of course, matters more!).
So by that line of thinking, you'd have a better chance of finding a girl acting in a more natural and relaxed atmosphere elsewhere. There are plenty of other places where you can learn how to meet women without having to deal with the pressure that comes with nightclubs!
Therefore, you need to expand your horizons and think of other places where you can meet girls under practical circumstances. To give you an idea, think about the most mundane locations, such as a bookstore.
You'd be surprised by the number of attractive women who are on the lookout for a good read. If gorgeous and brainy chicks are up your alley, this is a great place to start!
Of course, it's a given that you should be into books yourself. After all, you and that attractive woman are both there for the same purpose (well, more or less anyway).
You'll have a good opportunity to start a conversation because being at such a place gives you a perfect reason to ask her about say, what title she might recommend if you wanted to get into the non-fiction genre (or whatever section she was happening to browse through).
When you're open-minded enough to try unlikely places, knowing how to meet women becomes easier because you're increasing your options!
So don't be scared to stray from the beaten path. Beyond the nightlife, you'll actually have an easier time finding gorgeous and smart women who are worth your time!
