A local singles group in your area. Its cheap for guys and there are lots of ladies there. I have been to a rather large singles group here in Orange County CA at a mega church. Another is Parents without partners nation wide. Or just go to the local tanning salon or coffee shop and just hang out there.
Have to agree with you Club Med is good and everywhere..
I've never been to a Club Med, but I have heard it's great for meeting singles. It seems to me the singles I've met who have gone to the Club Med...they all met alot of singles, but all these singles were just there for FUN! NOT to meet a potential partner. So you meet a single while there, have fun, and never see them again. That is my perception from what I've heard. So is Club Med really a great place to meet singles? Maybe if you are just looking for a week of fun and nothing more substantial.
I have been to the Club Med, I don't agree with your friends assessment...some very meaningful relationship have come out of these outings...my friends were there also and they have met ladies they got involved with after there original holidsys...maybe your friends were not looking for anything serious neither..maybe why they had such an opinion.
