Unfortunately, the odds of you running into each other in the checkout line at the grocery store are awfully slim. If you want to meet other Wichita single people like yourself, you must go out and look for them. Here are some popular places to look.
It stands to reason that you want to date people with interests similar to yours, and where better to develop your interests and meet new people than a local college? Wichita offers many fine schools including the illustrious Wichita State University (316-978-3456). If you're looking for a community college, two options are Butler Community College (316-322-3255) and Cowley College - Southside Campus (316-554-2770).
Join A Professional Organization
Want to meet up with another nurse or another accountant? Then try joining a professional organization. You'll certainly make new friends, and you might even meet Mr. or Ms. Right. For a list of business organizations in Wichita go to www.wichitalinks.com/business_orgs.html.
Try A Dating Service
When dating services became popular several years ago, they endured a slightly sleazy reputation, as if no one worth dating would possibly need a dating service. But men and women alike have come to realize that as we get older and professional and personal responsibilities demand more of our time, we have fewer opportunities to meet other singles. Dating services cut right to the chase. There is no question about why another person is there or whether they are available.
If you are interested in a dating service, you might want to give Cupid Wichita (www.cupidwichita.com) a try. Cupid Wichita allows you to enter a profile online in the privacy of your home and look at the profiles of other singles. Rates are extremely reasonable.
Another option is speed dating. Speed dating allows you to meet several eligible singles quickly--each interaction lasts only about five minutes. If you and one or more of the other participants feel a spark, you can link up later. Find out more about speed dating for the Wichita single at www.wichitaspeeddating.com.
Special Interests? Got You Covered!
Kansas is at the center of the Bible Belt and many Wichita single people specifically want to meet other Christians who share their fairly conservative values. If you are interested in meeting only Christians, consider contacting Kansas Christian Singles, 316-522-3900, www.christian-singles.org.
Wichita also has a fairly large, though closeted, gay and lesbian population. If you are looking for a same-sex partner, check out Wichita's gayest website, www.outwichita.org.
Finally, if you like to play a little rough--maybe some leather handcuffs or a soft leather blindfold to get you going--consider joining up with Wichita's leather community, WOOLF (Wichita Organization of Leather Fetishes, www.woolfks.com/). Wichita sex has never been hotter.
So if you're a Wichita single, there's no reason to be alone and eating your heart out. Wichita offers literally dozens of opportunities for meeting exactly the right person for you.
