Steve's third great place to pick up single guys—whether your city cracked the Men's Health top five or not—is the hardware store. "This is literally a 30,000-square-foot holding pen for men," he says.
In this store, not all aisles are created equal. Steve says you'll most likely find the single men in the sections with lumber, screws and hinges. Women, meanwhile, tend to stick to the paint section.
One important thing to remember when you're shopping for your own Mr. Fix-It is to leave your cell phone behind. If you're constantly on the phone, Steve says, "A guy might see you and he goes, 'How am I going to talk to her?'"
