Ask yourself, where does your ideal person hang out on weeknights and weekends? According to Lipman, turning to people closest to you is a great idea.

"Everyone is single and looking." While you might get a "few bad apples" who aren't single, it's still worth trying out.
Dating is a stage of romantic relationships in humans whereby two people meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in an intimate relationship.

Meeting through friends wasn't just the most common among singles, it was the most common way people already married or in relationships met their partners too, followed by work, bars, events, and dating apps.
Nearly 60% who don't use apps say they meet people through friends and 63% of younger millennials (18 to 24-years-old) say that's also their go-to way.
When they're not swiping for matches, 75% of Tinder users also say they like meeting people through friends.
