trainingbee85: I meet people everywhere – grabbing a drink alone at a neighborhood bar, hanging out at the park, or even on the bus. 

I also did a lot of online dating which worked great – I met FI that way. I also just plain moved once I realized I just wasn’t compatible from a values perspective with people in one place. 

Have you thought about moving to the city and commuting for work?

I met my FI at brunch with mutual friends. It was great, because if we share friends, we must already have *something* in common. (Funny story, though – I thought he was a tool for like two weeks afterwards because he was brusque and standoffish with me. Turns out, he was super intimidated, and it took him that long to add me on Facebook. The rest is history.)

 

Internet dating, relatives of coworkers, finding a hobby (paintball or underwater basket weaving or whatever), Meetup groups for a common interest, bowling league, church, gym … all kinds of places to meet people.

 

That said, please don’t take this the wrong way, but maybe hanging around a wedding forum when you’re feeling the pressure of singledom isn’t a great decision for your own emotional wellbeing?
