Who said the only way to meet someone in the digital world was on an online dating site?

While I am a fan of online dating, there are many singles who haven’t dipped their toe in yet to the world of cyberspace. Almost half of the U.S. single population have tried online dating (source: US Census bureau). Where does the other half go if they are technically challenged or prefer to meet someone offline first?

There are the usual spots: coffee shops, cocktail bars, and singles dances. Still, some singles don’t want to venture out alone.

Do you want my suggestion?

Here you go. If you are a Mac user or have an iphone, sign up for their lessons at the Apple store. Their One To One program is available at the time you purchase your Mac or iphone and only costs $99/year. They have both private lessons and small group lessons available and there’s a full schedule to select from.

Why do I suggest going to the apple store to meet a potential date? It’s a low-pressure way of easing into a conversation with someone who may be able to share their experiences with you. You may walk out of the store with a new friend, a date, or in Hollywood perhaps even an agent. ?With their free wifi service, it’s easy to check your email while someone else may be checking you out.

Remember, men really do like smart-educated women. You never know, you may become the new apple of their eye. Better yet, you will be keeping your computer in tip-top-shape while you wait for your Inbox to fill up from interested parties from your favorite cyber-dating site.

    Great pointer Julie!

    Some of the Apple stores even have free events. The Santa Monica promenade store is set up for that. Also, if you have a question related to your hardware or software that comes installed with your machine, you can make a free appointment to talk to someone at the genius bar at any Apple store for 20 minutes.

    Bring a sweater, they keep the store cool for the equipment.
