In college. I got lucky, we happened to have a couple of courses together and started talking. 
 

We’re both in tech.

A little talking at a club in Hell's Kitchen during a friend's 21st birthday when I walked away from bottle service for a few minutes to dance. I did a little frenching and we exchanged numbers before I took somebody hotter home. Six years later, and we've adopted a small dog together.

I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.

Abs for show, personality for go.

Only downside to the IG model types is they're stupid as shit.  I was talking to one for awhile (not as hot/famous as the big ones) and she got involved in a pyramid scheme and wouldn't listen to me becuase "this ones different".

I met my long-time gf on Tinder and previous GFs through Bumble. 

I think the most important thing is alignment on future goals, etc...

IE my gf makes 6 figure now. debt free, etc... but is on-board with quitting work once we decide to have kids given my income is much higher. We both agree having a parent at home is a big benefit.

Foreign friend of a foreign friend was coming around and he happened to bring some foreign girls. I hit it off with one of them and she stayed the night with me.

We got to know each other better and started dating.

I used to hit up the big easy before it closed - knew the owner and all the waitress chicks. Good times.

I went on a date with one trying to become an influencer. On  pictures she was a 11/10, but in person a 6/10 at best. Her teeth looked really funny, and it made sense why in all of her pictures, she didn't smile.. 

She kept on cancelling dates literally a day or a few hours before. We finally met on the 4th time we coordinated the date, and 3 hours before we met she had told me about some dinner plans she had with friends and that our date had to end by a certain time .. I said ok and made plans to drink with a friend after the date. At the end of the date, she tells me that her plans were cancelled, but by that point her  flakeyness had turned me off and decided catching up with a friend would be more fun than spending more time with her.

lol me too - thanks to my divorced parents and my addiction to porn, my idea of what a healthy relationship with women looks like is so out of whack that I am going to be single for a very long time.
