No it's not another post to attempt to find somebody [Wink] .

After looking through the posts to this section, I began to wonder.

I've noticed quite a few posts to the love section have been mostly about where and how to find love.

This one is directed towards those who have found some one, but I think it would be interesting, and might give hope to those who haven't found there special some one yet.

Where did you find your significant other? How did you introduce yourself to them when you fist approached them (or how they introduced theirself, if you were the one who was approached)?

Welcome. Interesting subject.

I found my fiancee by showing up at her place to fix her computer. I had no intentions at the time (and was even dating someone), but I behaved myself, and didn't do anything I shouldn't have until after I broke up with the ex -- it was a long time coming anyway.

Anyway, I was just a 'net friend of hers who I had stumbled upon at a message board on the Internet where we were the only two in the same city (at least that visited the board relatively often) and I went over just to fix her computer.

Next thing you know, I was fixin' something else too. [Wink]

You certainly find love in the most interesting places. Which makes it more difficult to answer the question that keeps popping up, "Where do I go to meet girls?"

I found my sweetheart at college, she was in my History I class. I had noticed her, because she stood out pretty easily. She was the cute blonde with the Star Wars backpack [Big Grin] .

My mind went blank when I tried to speak to her, so I just said the first thing that came to mind, "So you like Star Wars!" at which point I noticed she had SpongeBob on her t-shirt (who doesn't like SpongeBob?) and added, "And SpongeBob!" She looked so scared, easily mistaken for creeped out at the time, so I was surprised when she approached me the next time.

Fastforwarding to two years later. . . we're still together, and plan to spend the rest of our lives together.

It was certainly a learning experience. I'm not sure how well it would work with anyone else, maybe I'm just lucky. To be honest, she's the first and only girlfriend I've had.

I've been with enough girls to know when it's right and when it's not, that's for certain.

The entire time I was with all of my ex girlfriends, I found myself longing for better. As if I was just passing the time until something better came along. I had this impending feeling of needing out. Badly.

I hurt myself, and all of the exes by hanging around far longer than I should have, and giving them the wrong impressions.

When it's right, you know it's right. You can't imagine being without them.

Sometimes, when it's wrong, you still can't imagine yourself being with out them, but (at least in my case) there's still this nagging thought in the back of your head that says, "nah, I'd be OK, it'd take time, but I'd be OK."

With Amanda (my fiancée's name, btw), I can't imagine being without her, and don't want to for even a second imagine it.

I had always been the, "Well, you're like a brother to me. . ." case [Big Grin] . It was kind of frustrating at the time, but looking back it wasn't so bad. Everything has finally come together for me. I know I couldn't imagine my life without my sweetie.

I looked over the posts that other people have made asking for help with learning to meet people, and I could see bits of my old self (which is why I was thinking that this discussion might be a little helpful). I could remember making all of the same mistakes, and taking things badly because I didn't have much self confidence.

Since I've been in this relationship, I couldn't imagine having to go back to my life before her. I know that things happen sometimes, and it's out our control, and things don't always work out, but one of the things she's taught me is be optimistic, and I feel deep in my heart that this will last.

It all seems like a lifetime ago. I was that anti-social geek, very little self confidence, and wondering what I needed to change to be liked. Luckily, before I gave up, I found my special some one who likes me for who I am.

Something I (fortunately) learned while in highschool, is that confidence is good, lack of self-esteem is pointless, and you need to be yourself, and stop giving a fuck what other people think or what the 'cool thing' to do is. The sooner you do that, the better off you are.

Which is something that you, unfortunately, have to learn on your own. Then you learn that it's time to move on, that dwelling in all of those past events is holding you back. They only make you stronger and made you who you are today [Big Grin] .

Unfortunately, it took me a little longer. I had to learn it in college. I got involved with student organizations, and learned how to be social, and I eventually learned that being a geek isn't a curse (some of those non-geek women find it attractive [hearts] ).

Hmmmm. . . there's a post for another time. . . "When did you embrace your inner geek?" I guess that's a story for another time, another board [Big Grin] .

Of course being a geek isn't a curse. [Wink] I find it a whole lot more attractive than fakey, popular guys who will do anything to impress a girl.

Well you have officially joined the .0001% minority of girls. Most of the girls I know enjoy the cheesy pick up lines of these men of steel because they are chessy.

Most of the girls you know are pretty sad, not to mention shallow. If that's the way they are going to be, then they deserve the shallow jocks they end up with.

As far as cheesiness goes...you can't get much cheesier than "So, you like Star Wars too!" [Wink] 'Men of steel' aren't the only guys who can make good first impressions. [Wink]

It's that .0001% minority of women who truely are the the kind of woman you want to find.

If by some miracle you manage to win the heart of a woman who falls into this category, then you know you have found true love.

There is something about them, something very special, that requires something more than a cheesy old pick up line that you might use on any girl, becuase she isn't "any girl."

You have to really get her attention. It requires you to find that one thing about her that really catches your attention, and try to make a deeper connection. And once you do, you have to hold on to her forever.

You have to hold on because she's the kind of woman who will stick by her geek no matter what. No matter how silly and quirky he is.

Any guy who has been able to find and hold on to one of these .0001% minority women, knows that it isn't about "most girls," it's all about finding a woman who is so much more than that.

That is so correct. I agree fully.

The chance of finding that girl is so slim to begin with...then getting her to feel the same way, near impossible...if not impossible.

True! Always be who you are, embrace what it is that makes you you, because you never know when someone may be falling in love with you; and it would be horrible if they fell in love with you for some trait that really isn't who you are.

I think it often isn't about the odds as much as it's about patience, and being prepared when the unexpected happens. I think I didn't do so well at the second part, but things seem to have worked out in spite of it.

My story was previously posted here.

A majority of people use the typical courting and mating habits and rituals: The lowcut pushup bras, the neckless behemoths with bulging biceps, the mindflayers who tell you to "GET AWAY GET AWAY GET AWAY" when all they want you to do is take them away. Argh. These people are "accepted" and hungry for attention. The person who just searches for "someone nice" gets left in the bin wondering what's wrong with everyone. The nice shy people are all hiding. The neandrathals and bimbos are at the bar. How do we get the shy ones to commisserate!?!?

I met my wife two jobs ago. She asked me out. I in no way whatsoever expected it and I had just sworn to my friends that I was not going to date for at least a year after painfully ending a nightmarish and horrific eight year relationship with someone incredibly incompatible with me. Soon after I had a bizarre run in with a woman who offered me a furry cup that said "I Love You" on it. We had been flirting for months. She told me "now... this doesn't mean anything." This same woman was a friend of my current wife. She brought her into the company before leaving. Five years later I called her and told her that I had married one of her best friends from high school. So in a way a bizarre and not so pleasant acquaintance resulted in a very happy two-years-and-counting marriage. See? Good can arise out of evil. And it always seems to happen when you're not looking.

Your story brings hope...however, not to be too negative, bad things happen just as easy as good. I sometimes wonder what the point is, it doesn't matter what you have that brings you happiness it can still be taken away just as easy as you obtained it.

I'm not trying to make anyone feel sorry for me, but trying to make a point...It seems every step I have took in life has been a struggle (I realize that nearly everyone feels this way). I work hard, try and do people right, keep up my morals, all that good stuff. Well, now you can say, "well, its a learning process just to make you stronger, good things will come." How? How can you even say that? Some good may come and it may go again....whats the point of getting stronger and learning just so you can die in the end? I guess maybe ignorance truely is bliss.

Sorry for the gloomy post, my overall point may be to cherish whatever you have that makes you happy because in the end you won't have it one way or another.

Speaking as a shy person myself, the nice shy ones are hiding because they're scared of all the loud, intimidating ones. [Wink] Or, they're not hiding at all, they simply fade into the background.

I remember being there [Wink] . It took me a while to figure things out for myself. It did get frustrating at times to hear, "It will get better, be patient. . ." and look around to see everyone else paired off.

In the end, the point to this whole thing, you realize on your own. You just have learn and grow on your own (just know that those closest to you are always there).

You certainly do bring up a good point. The point is to find to cherish all of the little things in life. It's all about the little things in life, and enjoying them while you can, and finding your happiness. For some people their happiness is Perl ( I've been there, dragonman. . . I'm a Perl Monk under the same name I use here [Big Grin] ), but it's different things to different people, but you just have to find what makes you happy.

Hi. Me again. I will now pause so everyone can finish rolling their eyes and groaning. [Smile]

OK. Doing all the things you were speaking of:doing right by people, good morals etc do not always lead to good things happening to you. Good and bad things are so random sometimes. Doing the things you said do however lead to good things sometimes. Crappy decisions lead to crappy outcomes.

When you were saying whats the point, I heard you. I think that way occasionally myself. If you continue thinking that way however it will lead to eating a bullet.

When I am in that mode I manage to make myself go through daily life in the best way possible that I know how even if I am not feeling it in my heart. I know it will pass, and I know I would not want my mood to create bad situations between me and all that I care about.

Some rely on prayer, some on drinking and drugging. I rely on sheer old cussedness.

I have decided that I am the mole in life's whack-a-mole game. I have a super heavy duty metaphysical hard hat, and everytime that hammer is coming down I give it the finger and say f#$k you. I climb out of the hole, brush rubble off, give the finger one more time and slog on.

Happiness is partly derived from a life well lived, and partly a chemical reaction. When chemicals let me down, I do 'good' just cuz.

This is probably not a good post I am at work and getting loopy I am so tired. I'll probably edit it away tomorrow after some sleep. Have fun. [Big Grin]

The chance of finding that girl is so slim to begin with...then getting her to feel the same way, near impossible...if not impossible.

MINE!

I'm sorry, she's actually the property of SCO. Our lawyers have sent their letters.

I actually posted this on another thread, but that's the greatness of copy and paste.

I have an online journal at www.livejournal.com, and a year or so ago this guy from the same town as me randomly friended me. Then in July of this year, I made a comment to one of his "friends only" posts, one I really related to it. As I'm typing up my reply to his post, I read through his other comments. This one LJ user wrote nearly word for word what I was going to say. I was intrigued, so I went to his LJ, and it was at that moment I knew I had found something unique and enigmatic, and so on the same level as myself. So, I left a comment in HIS journal, friended him, and as of last week he moved 2200 miles to be with me, and we live together. I've found the person I'm going to spend the rest of my life with.

The internet is a wonderful thing. And, heh, HE'S a geek too!

True! Always be who you are, embrace what it is that makes you you, because you never know when someone may be falling in love with you; and it would be horrible if they fell in love with you for some trait that really isn't who you are.
That's why you should be able to change for them, duh!
