I'm wondering how everyone on this forum went about meeting their significant other, or if it just happened. Most people I know who are dating at the moment met as neighbors or in a class or at work. In contrast, I didn't meet anyone at school, and my first job was with mostly people out of my age range, so I went out looking for opportunities to meet my SO: going to mixers and bars, using dating apps, going on blind dates when offered, etc.
Recently a friend told me she doesn't know how I did what I did because she is so shy and she wants to meet someone more organically. She does want be in a relationship. It made me think about the different paths.
So how did you and your SO come together? Were you looking, or did fate set you up?
