Mornings with Dave & Jen

Different places to meet singles
Different places to meet singles

Tired of the same old bar scene?

Why not try some of these different places to meet someone new from AskMen.com:

The Gym.  The key is to talk to someone while they’re in BETWEEN exercises.  If you start hitting on them while they’re running, or in the middle of a set, your chances go way down…and if you’re a guy, don’t go up to a woman and comment on how toned one of her body parts is.  It won’t sound flattering, you’ll just come off like a creeper.

Concerts.  People at concerts are already in a friendly mood, and it’s easy to start a conversation:  All you have to do is talk about the band.  It also helps that everyone’s a little buzzed and relaxed.  It’s like a bar without the pressure to meet someone.

Volunteering.  The fact you’re volunteering in the first place shows you’re passionate about something, which is pretty much universally attractive…and since THEY’RE passionate about the same thing, there’s a chance you’ll have some chemistry.

Any Kind of Team Event.  As in, go join a kickball league or an Ultimate Frisbee team.  It doesn’t matter what it is, just as long as it involves a large group of people.

Think “outside the bar” this weekend…and it might just be one to remember!

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

Fresh
An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
