No, I am not talking about women on a girls-night-out to have fun all by themselves (hooking up with guys is not the intention but might happen). I am talking about single women who form a group to go out in hopes of meeting men in bars, concerts, nightclubs, etc. I understand the reason. It is a bit intimidating to be all by yourself in a new place. As a guy, I can say that even for men it is intimidating to go somewhere alone. When you are alone you feel weak, like a loser really, and when you have buddies you feel that you have someone to cling to. Unfortunately, if your goal is to meet guys, you want to go all by yourself, or with just one girl-friend who is also single and is there for the same reason. You also want to make sure that she is not judgmental, will be able to survive on her own if you disappear, and will not do something stupid to hurt you.
Guys want to hit on just one girl at a time: That is why I liked the advice of Carianne Barrow, “When you’re out, be aware of the signals you give out, too. Girls often go out in large groups and this can be intimidating for a man to approach. If you’re in a group, step outside the circle occasionally — this doesn’t mean ditching your friends, just make sure you’re with one or two people at regular intervals so if someone does want to come over, they have the opportunity. If you see a hot man and you want to approach him, go for it. Men love to give advice, so asking for a recommendation about other places to go is a good place to start — as is getting him to recommend a drink.”
Group dating does not exist: My recommendation is that you leave your herd behind as soon as you see the opportunity because the last thing a man wants is to feel judged by a group of girls while he is all by himself. At that point, you almost make it appear that you are not with the group any more and even move to a part of the bar that you cannot be seen by your girl friends. Give your full attention to him and hint that you have a way to get back home by yourself; in other words, you are no longer glued to the group but are fully focused on him.
