The Best Places to Meet Black Men


Mothers always say: If you want to meet men, you have to go to where the men are. You're more likely to have men vying for your attention if you go to places where men far outnumber the women. In general, if you're looking for a serious relationship rather than a one-night stand or a fling, don't put too much stock in clubs and bars. Most men go there to pick up women for short-term fun. But if you're looking for a man to share something more lasting, here are a few places that black men particularly like to frequent.


  • Whether Christian, Muslim or New Age, most black men believe in God or a higher power and gravitate toward churches and spiritual institutions. The upside of meeting men in church is you may meet a man who is spiritually strong and may therefore treat you well. Sit within eyeshot of the guy you like--make sure he has a good view of you during the service, though you don't want to be caught looking at him. Try not to approach men directly, but be present at most social events of the church about 30 minutes after church is over to make yourself available to any men who may want to strike up a conversation.

Driving Range

  • Taking up golf will exponentially increase your chances of meeting an interesting black guy. While you may think the basketball court would be the most likely place to find black men, actually the number of black men who have taken up golf and are playing golf consistently has increased greatly in the past 20 years. Because it's rising in popularity, you'll find a lot of black men at the driving range. Not only that, he'll probably be a black man who's financially secure since golf is such an expensive sport. There is one woman for every 50 men at the driving range and at least 40 percent of the men there are single, claims a blogger named Eathan (see References below). You'll probably have guys falling over themselves to help you with your swing.

The Gym

  • Many black men like to work out and lift weights, so the gym is an excellent place to troll. When you meet a guy at the gym, you'll at least know that you share a hobby--working out. The free-weight area is one of the best places to bump in to men eager to give you lifting pointers. The pool and the sauna also are great places to make contact with men. If you've got a great body, showing it off at the gym is a sure-fire way to get some attention from men, as well as a few asking for your number.

The Supermarket

  • Everybody's gotta eat and black men are no exception. Stop going to the market in sweats, T-shirt and no makeup because the grocery store is teeming with single men. You may happen to bump into an attractive guy in the meat aisle, or by the bakery. Forget self check-out. The check-out line is a great place to strike up a conversation with a cute guy. Perhaps ask his advice about a recipe. More men are cooking for themselves--and you'll at least know you're getting a guy who knows how to go to the grocery store.
