If you’re wondering when Mr. Right will rock up, maybe you’re looking for him in all the wrong places. Here’s what you need to know about where science says you’re likely to find your future boyfriend.
1. Stay in your comfort zone. Instead of heading out to parties and pubs, hang with your besties and you might find your dream guy. No, really. A study by Mic magazine found that 39 percent of relationships start because of mutual friends. Aha!
2. Ask your friends. Seeing as though your friends can be such valuable resources when it comes to introducing you to a great guy, speak to them about the single dudes they know or just make it your mission to spend more time with them at their hangouts. This will not only refresh your social calendar but by going to different places, you immediately increase your chances of meeting new guys—whether they’re friends with your friends or not.
3. There are benefits to friendly introductions. You have loads in common with your friends, and chances are you’re similar to some of their other friends. You might share some hobbies, goals and outlooks on life. Your friends could therefore help you get closer to likeminded people.
