Fed up with the same day-in-day-out routine, grasping the same bottle of wine cooler and hanging out with the same people wearing different clothes and spouting off the same lame pick-up lines? Are you starting to ask yourself where all the "good ones" are in Missoula?

With that out of the way, let's dive into my "locals-only" list of places to meet your potential lovebird that will offer little to no competition to worry about...

I had to have an electronic store and chocolate chip pancakes with the smiley face near my home, otherwise I had to move elsewhere. (Oh, and wings. Really, really good wings. Seriously!!)
Allow us to present to you the finest Facebook pages and groups in all of the Missoula area (in no particular order). These are truly the best of the best. Nearly every status from the following communities are well thought out, none of that "I just had cereal for breakfast" time wasters. Get ready to click "like", here's our suggestions:
We stumbled across this gem of a video while doing a search for "Missoula, Montana" on Youtube and while this may be a bit dated (3 years ago), it still is pretty cool to see a montage of some of the best whips in town. I'm pretty sure most of the beauties are tucked away for the winter, but we are sure to see them as the weather gets warmer. They will just have to steer clear of the potholes.
