Guys in a relationship, how did you meet your wife/girlfriend?

Dropbox / Eng 100k🔗🐼
Feb 17 180 Comments

I want to know because I can’t seem to meet single guys and I don’t even know where to start...most guys I meet that I would date are already taken. Single guys that make it clear they are single, I can see why they are... Some guys I can’t even tell if they are single. How do you even find out?

Need more ideas.

No, online dating isn’t the answer for me, rather meet someone organically.

      What does TC have to do with getting dates as a woman?
      Feb 17
    • Microsoft rgc42etcx
      It doesn’t have to do with getting dates but it has to do with “give and take” philosophy of blind. You are asking for advice and recommendations. That doesn’t come free.

      @OP -- the philosophy for sharing TC & YOE is to disseminate info. Since we do not share our comps in real life, in Blind we share it. This is the basic etiquette here. Simple.

      Agree TC doesn’t matter for me when I meet a woman. Do you have any friends that are in relationships that could set up dates or group events?

      Also have you tried joining clubs or groups? I’ve met some women by joining running clubs and things like that.

    Why do people keep asking this question when the answer is the same everytime? Every single girl - "why can't I meet a guy?" Every single time - there are 1 million guys interested it's just you think they are all below your standards. Either lower your standards or stop complaining. Lol. No one is entitled to Chad, just like no one is entitled to sex or love.

    how many new friends are you having lunch with a month?

    • New zv9973
      ^^This. What I learned from mine (receptionist story earlier) is, don't fear rejection - fear regret. My wife ultimately asked me to join her and co-workers for a drink... I turned around on the highway after initially shying away. 1 month later, we were dating; 3 months later, she broke up with me fearing that the four kids were too much baggage; 4 months after that, we were married.

      After 11 years, a fifth child and more stories than we can remember, the hallmark lesson is to fear only regret.

  • I’m not in relationship rn. But, I usually meet girls at places i frequent/services I use. Some places that I’ve met my ex-gfs have been at restaurants, events happening in my city, airports, parties organized by friends or their friends, random get-togethers and uber/lyft.

    I’d advice don’t wait for the other person to take it to next level. If you want to take it to next level give your number and let them decide.

    Keep it moving.

      Do you talk to these girls first or do they talk to you? I go to restaurants by myself all the time and I sit at the bar too but I actually rarely see people my age there. Couples or old dudes only. :(

    • AIG / Design cool2point
      I usually walk up to a girl I fancy. Sometimes, girls would start random conversation if I’m sitting near them or they would come up and sit next to me which almost leads to a conversation. I agree it maybe hard to know if a guy is single early in the convo but its easy to know if a girl is single or not.

      I’d say try upscale bars popular in your city. Not too fancy just a little decent. say where old fashion may cost (15-17$). dont use this measure literally this is just to give an idea.
      Feb 17
    • Dropbox / Eng 100k🔗🐼
      OP
      I don’t have single girl friends to go to upscale bars with me so I would have to go by myself...I do love cocktails. That’s not weird to guys, woman by herself at a bar?
      Feb 17
    • AIG / Design cool2point
      No- I usually go for dinner. I don’t cook at home so it works for me.

      You can try to go when they have live music events like jazz and that maybe your excuse to be by yourself.

      The idea is to find a guy who likes things you’d like doing. dont try to find anyone, find someone who you can tolerate bcz he shares your interests. so bar is just one example. say you like wine and paint - go to that event. also- if you are from a particular culture try going to events related to that culture.

      My girlfriends told me Meetup events usually have single guys flooding the event. don’t know how true it is but worth a try.

    The problem with dating apps people are mentioning here is that it gives a lot of choices, all of them based on first impression of looks. It's good for hooking up, but isn't ideal of relationships. Once you get into a relationship through a dating app, it's easy to think that "there are so many other options to choose from, maybe the other options are better". It's definitely a good way to go if one doesn't have an option to go out and meet people, but it brings its own set of challenges.

    First met my wife as the receptionist when I was interviewing for a senior data analytics gig at a start-up. Was asked by friend who referred me there (who was already working there at the time) what I thought of her. "Hot, but unattainable."

    And yet, 19 months later, we were married. Celebrated 11th anniversary of our first date this past Friday. (She's now a program manager for the near-FAANG that acquired the start-up; I left after 9 years for another start-up to hunt a bigger nest egg, broader exposure and ability to drive massive change.)

    If you want to organically grow relationship, first become open to having normal relationships with many people -- not because you looking for a SO, but because you want to meet people. Get to know them, have fun with them, spend time with them. Then you might find someone whom you like for more than just a friend.

    "Some guys I can’t even tell if they are single" -- they are your best bet. Be friends with them. But, please don't become a friend because you just want a husband. They can smell that.

      Nah. It tells you simple but effective things like when you are sitting in a bar, a guy wouldn't magically come up to you. You have to use your body language, like looking at him for a moment and when there's eye contact, you smile. There's also things like how to filter out guys you would like to date before you even talk to them.
      Personally, I have spent a lot of time improving my dating and people skills. So I do know which advice is good and which is not. And the advice for women in super seducer 2 is decent.

      OP
      Oh I’ve been DMed many times. 50% are like fobby Indians and I don’t want to date them. Can’t get past the cultural difference and expectations. I dated an 6’ Indian who’s really handsome and nice and probably high TC (who knows he left Amazon for MSFT) but he won’t eat sushi or pork with me and invited me to a party and everyone just watched Bollywood all night and I felt weird. Also the accent is hard to understand. I would date an Indian that grew up in the US but not many of them around.

      Take it from a Indian guy that grew up here.. there are a lot of Indian men that grew up in the US. Indians are one of the biggest immigrants to the US which leads to many having Indian kids here.

      Also was that guy religious? Cause usually Indians are not against eating sushi, pork maybe though

      Blind is a bad place to meet guys, most of these guys only care about TC, dress shitty, don't work out, etc.

      Mostly bad personalities. I’m automatically weary of someone from amazon because every single guy I dated that works there is a jerk (4 now..)

      Did you go in it looking for a relationship or “let’s just see where things go”?

    Met at a religious function. The key though wasn’t religion as much as that I was at a place I wanted to be around likeminded people with similar goals and interests. I also met people in dance classes, clubs (not the dancing type), and other places where people with common interests do stuff.

    Think of things that interest you and you like to do and go to places where you can do those things around other people. Then, for the hard part, talk to strangers and be open minded. Realize that most people around you are just as awkward and nervous as you may often feel you are.

      That's a good way, but at least approaching and starting conversation helps if you don't wanna go so far as to ask them out.

      I want to find someone like me. If I exist there has to be another person that exist like me. I don’t really go meet guys except online that’s why I’m asking so I can have some ideas.

      You might want to change that last part then... Limiting yourself to online will only get you low quality guys. Try chatting up a guy in Starbucks or something
