While having the ability to block out the outside world can be convenient in many scenarios, it also makes it incredibly difficult to approach you.
The next time you’re tempted to crawl into your own little bubble at a coffee shop or on the CTA, pull out a book instead.
Whether you participate in the host committee for an upcoming fundraising event, volunteer a few times a month at a local nonprofit or for an event like the Chicago Marathon, volunteering will provide you with plenty of opportunities to meet like-minded people.
Best part: if you don’t meet the man/woman of your dreams, you’ll still walk away feeling good.
She’s single (and terrified to mingle on Tinder), so feel free to send her your nice male friends via Twitter: @Chicagoista.
