50 ways to meet your lover...

I've just watched 'You've Got Mail' and gotten myself into a thought-funk on how people meet their lovers.

There seems to be two schools of thought; the first where one can get some 'knowledge' on what a prospective partner is like - the second being a more 'risky' one where you can't.

The majority of the people I know seem to have met their partners at work/university. Hot on these heels is the old 'friend of a friend' or 'friend of the family' trick. We mustn't forget the internet either when considering self-selecting circles. 

Outside this shlock, there's a fair few who ended up using bars and clubs as a meeting point, where they went on to meet a partner previously unknown to them. Whilst this seems to have worked wonderfully for some, I personally haven't had the pleasure of meeting ANYONE outside my friendship circles who happened to interest me in THAT way.

I wondered whether I was going to the wrong places so I changed neighbourhood and event type. I still got approached but not by the types I wanted. Unstimulating small talk with randoms I have little in common with has gotten boring, so I've decided to go back to square one.

And what is this mysterious square one?

Friends of friends. A failsafe which can only get you more friends as birds of a feather flock together and this self-selection makes them all the more compatible, capische?

I'm done with the randoms as well...I just have no small talk left in me...leaves me in a bit of a quandary because most of my friends (and their single attractive friends) are in bloody different countries...oh well...there is asking the 'rents to fix me up.
