Yea, dance classes are the way to go. I've talked to many people who have met in dance classes, and even if they haven't met a girl/boyfriend, they've made a lot of friends through it...

plus, a lot of girls like a guy who knows how to dance

If it's an option for you or something you would even consider, most churches have a singles class.

Yeah, during those two months I tried partner dancing, I noticed that most of the young single girls are taking Salsa. If you ever try ballroom dances like Swing, Hustle, etc, you'll encounter a lot of older, married women. Not sure why all the young single ladies are into Salsa, but not any of the other dances.

And btw, I haven't had much luck with girls in Salsa because like I said, most of the girls aren't committed. They would come for a few lessons, they find out that Salsa dancing is harder than they expected, and then they stop going. I almost hit it off twice with a pretty, single girl. We were talking a lot and getting along and then bam!! They're gone. They don't return for anymore lessons and I don't see them ever again!

I don't want to creep her out by asking for a number right away when I just met her.

Consider the facts here. How many girls have come and went that you never asked for the number. That's now a 100% failure rate. If you creep her out and she says no, your failure rate is still 100%. If you don't creep her out, its a win. You can't do worse than you are already doing. You are asking for dating advise... on a tech forum. Anyways, check the speed dating scene there. At least then everyone is there for the same reason.

Women tend to get creeped out too easily. For some reason, they get scared easily. I tell ya, I get headaches trying to figure out women and why they act the way they do.

That's what Facebook is for. When I go on nights out I often exchange Facebook details with girls I've just met (best asking just before they leave), especially now that nearly everybody has the app on their mobile phone. Few people will give out their number straight away but most are happy to add you on Facebook and you can take things from there.

Just go where you like to hang out and open your eyes OR go where you think your partner of your choice should hang out.
E.g. you like girls that like to party, well... guess where to go to.
You like rock girls, guess what - concerts.
You like big girls, go to McDo... okay I'm messing! :laugh:

I know. I'm 26 years old and am currently not in any serious relationship. Everyone I know that is my age or younger is already married or in a serious relationship. I'm really behind, which is why I need to find a girlfriend asap.

Wrong.

If that is all you can come up with, then don't bother trying and chillax. :yes:

I'm sorry. I don't understand. It does trouble me because I'm 26 years old and am not even close to finding that special someone. I don't want to get old and die alone.

Your motivation to find a woman shouldn't be "because [you're] behind". :no:
