3.  The Market

The grocery store is still a place to meet singles.  One of our gatekeepers found love at Kroger, and has been singing the praises of grocery stores ever since.  If grocery stores are not your thing, then head over to the Mulberry Market each Wednesday in Tattnall Square Park to meet some great Maconites who just might be your match. 

4.  Church

Being in the heart of the Bible Belt makes church the place to meet new people.  With more churches per square mile than people to attend them , there are countless congregations where you future spouse might be waiting. Churches  have lots of social events that allow you to get to know singles in the area that share your values. 

5.  The Coffee Shop

A coffee shop is the G-rated version of the bar scene.  We guess buying someone a latte is seen as more romantic than buying someone a shot.  The great thing about this hot spot is that if you don’t meet anyone there, you can always use the free wi-fi to check your online dating profile.  Locally, we recommend Jittery Joes in Mercer Village and Taste & See coffee downtown. Starbucks is always crowded and makes a great choice as well.
