Volunteering is online dating gold. You can put it on your profile and instantly stand out from the rest of the pack. Any sort of volunteering is great. You’re helping the world and looking like a hero for the ladies. Some types are more effective than others. Skip picking up bottles on the side of the highway and head to these great volunteer positions to make the most impact with your community service.
Help Kids Learn to Read
Even if a woman doesn’t like kids, and even if she doesn’t like to read herself, women love that you help kids learn to read. It’s a life skill, and it says on some level “I’m a great dad.” It’s just coded into their biology to respond to that. Also the hours are really easy. Two hours a week in the late afternoon or an hour during your lunch break one a week are all you need to give up. Low impact, high reward, and you’re also shaping someone’s whole life. Not bad for a few hours a week.
Volunteer at a No Kill Shelter
Spend a couple hours shoveling dirt in a city community garden and you’ll be able to take home more than just a couple tomatoes. These small corners of the city are a way to educate people about nutrition, and lend a little touch of nature to a setting that’s been stripped of it. Your work helps provide a lot of people with free vegetables. It also goes a long way towards making you seem manly. Farmer might not be a glamorous job, but getting a little dirty now and then makes a woman think “cowboy”. Get a little dirt under your nails for a good cause and they’ll come out of the woodwork to support you.
If none of these float your boat, pick a different volunteer job. If you don’t like kids, animals, or plants there aren’t that many jobs left over for you to do. Pick out the bags at a recycling center or clean up an oil spill off the beach. Just make sure that whatever you decide to do, you can add “volunteering” to that perfect profile you’ve been crafting.
