West Michigan is a very faith based community.  So, when you are looking for faithful like minded people, what better place to look then your local place of worship?  Most places of worship have youth groups and host community events, both of which are great places to meet singles who will have lots in common with you.

So check out your local church or synagogue for a community group or event.  You would be surprised at the amount of eligible singles available.

Even if you aren’t of faith you could still consider stopping by your local church to find a community event to volunteer for.  Who knows, you might just find your future spouse.

3) Sporting Events

The West Michigan Whitecaps and The Grand Rapids Griffins.  Both great times, and great places to go looking for singles.  With over 100 games a year between the two teams, you can pick up some singles almost anytime you want.

Sports nuts, what better place to find a mate then at a baseball game?  If you want to go looking for single sports fans, look no further.  All of your sporty singles are watching the Whitecaps in the summer and the Griffins in the winter.

Both the Whitecaps and the Griffins have themed nights, too.  So if you are a college single, then be sure to hit up college night at either Van Andel Arena or 5/3rd Ballpark!
