Most cities i visit i do know some people, others i dont
I'm a pretty social person but not super Mr Social. I am in my early 30s so not too old but not a teenager anymore. I stay in 4 or 5 star hotels, i'm past the backpacking stage.
Usually i just go to a local bar or pub and get chatting to people.
But in this day and age with technology, there are other options.
Often, i'm not looking to 'pick up' as such, i just want someone of the opposite sex to go out to dinner with. Dining at nice restaurants around the world is an important aspect of travel for me.
For an upcoming trip, i am going to use meetup.com to go to some group activities to meet people
Also thinking about using rentafriend to get someone to go to dinner with
any other suggestions ?
