Meeting singles outside of bar scene
Posted by Ben-wah (+74) 15 years ago
OK ... I have been thinking really hard about putting this thread up, so here it goes.

Outside of the usual bar scene, which I don't have to go far to experience, believe me ... where does someone who is single meet people here in the area?

Especially people who don't drink!?!?

I definitely hope this gets answered in a good way. Thanks in advance for all of your help.

Move out of Miles City.

Questioning Almighty Alcohol in MC is tantamount to heresy.

There are some decent single people in Miles City. Try Cafe Utza. See what activities are going on at the college. Join the Barn Players. Spend time at the local games. Join a bowling league. Do the favorite summer pasttime. Walk around downtown and eat ice cream. Or just go downtown on Friday night and see who keeps coming out of the bars looking bored. You may have spotted your match.

I would think the "ROLLER SKATING RINK" on adult nights would be a perfect spot

Adult nights are Sunday 7PM-9PM and Wed Nights 7PM-9PM

Hope this helps out your delima

He has a Delima? Man, that's one hot ride! I haven't seen one in a long time. Fast, stylish (rich Corinthian leather on EVERYTHING) and altogether a lot of car for the money. They are hard to get in and out of, though (with the gull-wing doors and all). Still, small price to pay for all you get when you slide behind the wheel of a 1964 Linquinetti Delima Mark II.

I am just wondering, how is he not swimming in women if he's rolling around in a Delima?

Does a roller skating rink actually exist?

For you horse lovers out there; those into actual leg em up then GOOOOO type, I am single and interested in forming an adult singles horse back riding club. My farm in Kinsey is a good place to ride, and the county roads out here are great. I have been riding out here for several years and love it. You can saddle up at my place on the river, then ride loops many miles long, and the scenery is great.

For any gal who needs a place to board her horse, I might be able to do that to.

When i refer to riding, that does not mean crawling on then struttin down the dike.


Any interest out there respond here or give me a call.
Thanks,
Tom 232-1083

Little did I know what I was in for. And, Brian, moving is not an option right now.
Hmmm ... church is an option, especially since I am trying to make friends who are single who may have similar interests. The others ... I have no idea where some of them are (the cafe' mainly), and as for games, I'm already there but slightly busy. I do appreciate the help, however, with the post.
Thanks especially to Kasey for her honesty in options. It's what I was looking for, more or less.
And, by the way, if someone wants to drink, great. It's just not me to do so. I don't think of people any less or more if they do or don't drink. I'm not a total dweeb ... I think.
So if you see someone totlly lost at the Book Club on Fridays (which I walk by nearly every Friday night ... when I am not working), it's lilely me. Then again, I tend to look often ... j/k.
Oh ... one more thing ... I drive a non-chick-magnet car. Way too many road trips to have a car to pick up chicks, or a pickup for that matter.

A chick magnet car isn't important. It's if you're smiling behind the wheel. And there are those women who prefer a guy who doesn't have a six pack in the back seat all the time! Where do your road trips take you? There may be people who share the same interests and would like to join you. The more people you meet the better chance of meeting someone special.

I would agree to a certain extent. However, add some chilled tomato/clamato juice to that cooler of Bud Light...and the Miles City chics just wilt.

Maybe SOME Miles City chicks wilt....but not all. Definitely not the ones this man is looking for. Don't give up. There are women out there who prefer a sober relationship.

Funny Gunnar ... really funny. Actually, I have had people tell me that is how they drink their beer, period. I can't get past the tomato juice to begin with. Then there's this thing about beer that was mentioned WAY earlier.
Thanks Kacey for the encouragement. I needed to see that this morning. Anyway, I take my walks on Main Street, usually with my MP3 player, about 3-5 times a week, when I am not on the road.
I have seen some good ideas ... the only one that I have seen that wouldn't work, would be a traveling partner. Most of my travel is work-related, so that would be kind of hard. Although it would make those summer trips to Helena, Bozeman, Butte and the like go by faster.

Wow!

Even though I'm no longer in Miles City, seeing someone whose life doesn't revolve around drinking and still wants to go out and have fun is surprising!

I'm not sure where to tell you to look - it's about impossible there, slightly moreso than it is here - but the best of luck! I just wanted to commend you for trying to be a *real* human!

Drinking makes you less real? Weird.

Glad to be there for you. Sometimes just a little extra encouragement is all that's needed. Just make some friends. Female friends. Best friends can often turn into the best girlfriend.
