With the long winter finally coming to an end and bathing suit season right around the corner, it’s no secret that spring is the time for some healthy changes. But it’s not just your diet that needs a pick-me-up; springtime also means putting an end to your long hibernation, putting down your TV remote and venturing outside to meet new people.

Here are the top 5 places to meet someone offline.

1. Wonders of a Workout

It is no secret that working out works wonders to get your body bikini-ready, but did you know it can also revitalize your love life? No matter what your favorite workout may be to get your figure into tip-top shape – whether it’s swimming, running or walking – working out is the perfect excuse to socialize. Heading to your local gym or park for a solid workout can also be the perfect setting to meet new eligible singles that live in your area. So grab your sneakers and get to work!

2. Hobby Hookup

Spring cleaning is not just in reference to cleaning out your closet. This is a great time of year to rediscover the things you love. While we all know that it is important to follow our passions, we often end up getting caught up with work, forgetting to make time for ourselves and the things we enjoy most. If you have a hobby (maybe it’s tennis, art or charity work), make it your goal to join a club or organization for it. Surrounding yourself with other people that have the same hobbies as you makes it easy to connect with people and ensures that you have a few things in common. Who knows, your hobby may even hook you up to meeting your soulmate.

3. Sunny Spots

When it comes to after-work happy hours, opt for an outdoor spot. Nobody can resist having a cold drink after a long day of work on a nice, sunny day. Find the best outdoor happy hour hot spots and head there with a few friends. You will be surrounding yourself with young business professionals that are also looking to meet new people.

4. Spring Sports

Whether you are a die-hard sports fan or don’t know your city’s team, there is no denying that going to a spring baseball game is a fun night out with your friends. It is also a great place to meet groups of potentially single guys and girls. Grab your baseball hat and drag your friends to a game!

5. Table For One!

Live a little! Now that the brisk winter wind is gone, take full advantage of the warm weather and explore new places in your area. Try a new coffee shop or restaurant and don’t be afraid to sit alone. Instead of taking your lunch to-go, sit down and munch on your salad at your local outdoor café or park bench. Ladies: While sitting with a group of your girls can be intimidating to a guy, sitting alone makes you much more approachable; it’s the perfect way to meet a guy!
