Hope for the Single

This article shows why none of you who are still single and looking should lose hope. No matter how esoteric or varied your tastes, there's someone out there for you, apparently. The trick is NOT to go out looking, but to sit back, relax and let them come to you.

(I haven't read the article yet.)

That's one thing I always question about this. Just chill out and be a great person and do cool shit and wait for someone to come along seems like a great idea, but I suspect it can be taken too far.

And, as mentioned below, some of us introverts need to work on at least getting out where people are likely to meet us.

Okay, here's something:

I have been married more times than everyone who's commented on this post put together. And I'm NOT a "superdater." I mind my own business and when someone says "Oh, do you mind if I bring my friend so-and-so on this outing?" I say "The more the merrier." That has included study sessions in college (husband #1), trips to the airport to pick up friends (husband #2), and get-togethers at my house (husband #4). My biggest mistake by far was husband #3, the one I "went out and got." But I have accepted that I am the worst judge of what's good for me possible without being actually dead.

I wonder if the fact that in our society, as in most, the man is expected to make the first move the vast majority of the time has something to do with different people's experiences.
