Default Where to meet girls in Calgary (early 20s guys) -REPOST, WITH MORE INFO-

Hey, everyone!

I work at a warehouse from Monday to Friday, and I'm through using the apps, and it seems i don't hear a lot going on in Calgary much these days in the way of social events?

What's a good way to meet girls, and find ones to date, in Calgary on the weekends?

I am re-posting this.... because I feel it would be useful for me to add some more information.

HERE IS THAT MORE INFORMATION

I am 24, like I said. I only work, don't go to school, and it's pretty much get up, go to work, come home, go to bed: from Monday to Friday.

Saturday and Sunday... every weekend I say I'm gonna go make those two days count.... but I in turn find that very difficult to actually do.

I don't have huge social circles, and I find that when I have hooked up with a girl from a dating app, it doesn't work too well.

I'm socially awkward (which you would never guess from typing... I'm VERY SOCIAL on the computer), so when we meet up.... they're shocked at how hard it can be for me to hold down a conversation.

I have also, and this is a VERY IMPORTANT POINT, gotten along much better with older people than people my own age, so I find it hard to relate to them. They seem very immature to me, even to some extent: the friends I do have.

I have been diagnosed with ASD, so that's probably why.

And on the apps, I seem to often attract 18 or 19 year olds for some reason, which is odd. And the couple times I have met up with them, just too immature.

I'm into things like collecting vinyl records, and I love supporting Canadian music,

I am into craft beers, love them a lot.

I write folk music, often in the style of Stompin' Tom Connors, my Canadian idol.

I have a lot of very specific interests, and I just am a whiz at talking to girls online when I do get them, but in person I am often a wreck.

I don't know what to do.

Dads and comedians, PLEASE DO NOT comment. I want ACTUAL advice here.

I am looking to expand my social circles, and maybe find summer love this summer.

I say I'm gonna change things every year, but then they remain very similar.

I want to REALLY make this year the one I do something.

Where do I go to comfortably meet up, start conversations, etc?

People tell me go to Cowboy's or Knox, but I find those people too immature. Always have.

Anyone else had this struggle? I have a feeling the struggle is real.

I hope someone can read this and understand that, the struggle IS real.

I'm just looking for suggestions, for anyone who might know.

I hope my question makes sense.

Thanks!

I’m not sure what the problem is here though? Based on your post it seems like you have no problem meeting girls, but are awkward around them and quick to judge them as immature?

Join a few rec sports teams (Calgary sport and social club is a great organization for this kind of thing). They usually make teams of people that can't put their own full teams together.
Hope that you get put on a team with a few cute girls.

It's a lot easier to talk to women when there's no expectations attached, and your playing a game/sport. You can start a few friendships, and maybe they'll develop into something more, or not, but at least you'll have expanded your social circle.
Friends of friends going out for a few drinks is a great way to meet someone as well.

If by meeting someone you just want to meet them for an evening then I am sure the bars you suggested are great. If you truly want to meet someone, ditch the swipe apps and try the legit searching for someone apps such as match.com
Be honest about your train wreck style in person throughout your profile so you can attract other train wrecks.
Pick dates that are more interactive and less sitting at a table staring at each other trying to make convo.

i am assuming that you have used some dating apps that are meant to cater/align with some of your personal interests.

by the way, it is ok to group your thoughts into paragraphs.

Come on now, I'm sure everyone wants to hear a mashup of Mambo No. 5 and Revolution 9.

Have you tried dipping your pen in company ink? That is how I met my wife. You seem stable enough to manage a work relationship.
