Show up early and politely chat with the yoga girls. Ask them for advice on a certain pose and they’ll likely give you a full demo and a personal lesson (in their bedroom…jk).Go to Bikram Yoga for a powerfully sexual yoga experience, spin class if you’re into intense women, or a Barsculpt class if you want to push your body and tighten your man-booty.

You’ll find this person at Startup Weekend where you’ll collaborate on designing an app and fall in love over late night business plans.There is built-in conversation if you’re a bit shy, and you’ve got a joint mission (which is a mega turn-on).
