Mingle Lounge is the best place to pick up girls in Portland if you’re into a more intimate nightclub scene. This is definitely one of the sexiest nightclub lounges in the area. What makes Mingle Lounge so great is the intimate setting and the moody red light. All of this sets the perfect scene and mood for meeting someone for a one-night fling.
Our favorite thing about the lounge is their variety of talented DJs. You’ll catch some of the best hip-hop and RnB beats here. The music is perfect for dancing all night long and meeting lots of girls. Finally, if you happen to get hungry, this place also serves up some pretty great food so you won’t go home hungry.
These are some other great clubs for meeting cute single girls. However, they didn’t quite make the top of our list for one reason or another:
Are you in the mood for some good food near Portland State University? Then you need to stop by Phat Cart. This is a fantastic Asian-fusion cafe that serves up bentos and sandwiches. The place is small and intimate. This makes for a great place to introduce yourself to someone new.
After all, why have lunch alone when you can share it with someone new? The cafe makes it easy to sit next to someone else. So ask the cute girl by the counter what she recommends for you to order. Don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation out of the blue!
If you’re starting to grow tired of one-night encounters and are looking for something more, then you’re going to need to try a new angle. If you want to confidently connect with people in a meaningful way then you’ll want to try out eHarmony. While sites and apps like Tinder or Adult FriendFinder are incredibly popular, they’re not the best for finding something long-term.
On the flip side, eHarmony is the one website that results in tons of matches and marriages. In fact, 69% of men and 71% of girls meet their spouse on eHarmony within a year. There are not many sites that can boast those kinds of numbers. Along with such a great success rate, eHarmony also has a more extensive sign-up process than most. This is to ensure that the site matches you with someone you’re compatible with. It also filters out users who aren’t serious about finding a relationship.
So if you’re ready to finally meet the girl of your dreams, then give eHarmony a chance! You’ll quickly find that this is the best place to pick up girls if you’re ready for something serious.
Have you considered the prospect of meeting single girls in a coffee shop? Well, if you haven’t, then you need to check out Case Study Coffee Roasters. This brightly lit coffee shop is one of our personal favorites for a variety of reasons. For starters, the coffee shop serves up great coffee along with a seasonal menu and pastries. Along with that, the cafe is also a popular spot for locals to set up with their laptops for work or studying.
Get here early and grab a seasonal coffee and something to eat. Make your way to the seating area and find a prime location. Don’t be afraid to approach someone new and ask them what they’re reading or working on. You’ll be surprised how friendly and outgoing the people who come to this cafe are. We’ve met some pretty awesome girls while drinking an espresso here.
If you’ve already tried out the bars and clubs we’ve listed above, then here are a few more that are worth your time. Check these places out:
The Waterfront Blues Festival is an annual event in Portland, Oregon. The event is an outdoor music festival that takes place every summer in July. At this event, you can catch four days of live performances from a variety of blues musicians. You can bet that the hottest Portland girls make their way to this event.
So if you’re ready to meet like-minded girls who enjoy the same music as you, then head to this festival. There’s also usually alcohol available at this event. So if you need a confidence booster, you’ll find it here as well!
Tinder is definitely one of the most well-known apps for meeting people. The app originally focused on bringing people together for casual flings. But over the years, it has turned into more of a general dating app. So if you’re not sure if you want a fling or something serious, Tinder’s worth a shot.
It’s also worth noting that since all girls really get to judge you off are your photos and a short bio, you need both of these to be captivating. So if you have great photos and a fantastic bio, then you’ll quickly find that most girls will easily swipe right on you. However, if you’re more charming with your personality (which doesn’t always reflect online), then you might prefer the other apps and sites we mentioned previously.
There are lots of great reasons to join the Lloyd Atheltic Club! For starters, this is one of the most inclusive fitness centers in Portland. No matter what your body type, you’ll feel comfortable heading to this gym. On top of that, the girls who come here are all fitness-oriented and super friendly.
