Last week, I gave you three rules for picking optimal venues to find quality men.

But I knew I could be more helpful. Which is why today, I’m listing 40+ ideal venues for you to check out.

But that’s not all.

I’m breaking this list down into 12 flavors of men you’d find yourself attracted to. This list comes from Ali Binazir’s book The Tao of Dating: The Smart Woman’s Guide to Being Absolutely Irresistible.

I know.  I’m like Siri for dating. You’re welcome.

12 Flavors, 44 Venues
