With so many people coming and going from this town, there will always be a large population of single people, especially younger college aged individuals. Almost every day, some columnist whines about how they aren't getting any action. Depending on what your style is, the right person could be anywhere. Only the desperate can be found searching at meat markets or other random spots. Indeed, many find pleasure in solo dining (which can still lead to some action). Once you find someone, you'd better have some good ideas for dates. You should also know about good makeout spots. Be careful: dating can lead to sex, so you might need some contraception. Dating can also lead to marriage.

One thing that has changed significantly in the last five years is the number of dating resources available to the public. Not only has there been an increase in dating websites ranging from the bland to the extreme there has also been an increase in dating resources and counseling in universities and other privately funded organizations. If you are a student, note that there are significantly more women at UC Davis than men. This theoretically means there are fewer excuses for guys, and women might have to share or look elsewhere. In reality these numbers could be skewed based upon possible dichotomies of girls who maintain high school relationships versus guys who do so, and of differences in receptiveness to dating. Furthermore, if the previous statement does not apply to you because you don't believe in monogamy or are not heterosexual, you can still use the following resources or check out the Gay Community page for networking ideas.

Though meeting people over the internet used to be considered taboo, it has slowly become accepted as more and more people become internet savvy, or just don't have time to meet people in day to day life. As of 2011, approximately one in every five new relationships in the US stems from online dating or social networking sites such as [WWW]Facebook. On dating sites that require a paid subscription in order to communicate, only a small portion of users tend to be actively communicating at any given time. On free dating sites a larger portion of users actively communicate, but it can still take considerable time and effort to get a date. Be cautious since some less reputable dating sites are tied to identity theft or identity monetizing scams (for example: [WWW]this report), and deceptive dating profiles can be posted on any dating site. As an aside, not only can dating websites help you to begin a new relationship, they can just as easily end one, since nearly 30% of all breakups are due to emotional infidelity through dating websites or other online communications.
