Craigslist. I responded to a Missed Connections post he wrote and we really clicked so we decided to meet. The rest is apparently history.
Although he is embarrassed about this so he tells people we met through work when he came to my work to make a sales call. It's true he solicited our business (and didn't get it) but we never met that way. I find it interesting he feels the need to lie about it.

My best friend in highschool was her best friend in college. Our mutual friend contacted me to invite her to a civic organization I was involved with. She went on a date with one of the other guys, which turned out to be such a disaster that she called me to crash it. I guess I became her white knight. Our first date after that went pretty well. That's it, in a nutshell.
My BIL was a buddy in the city where my parents lived. One weekend, home from college, we all went out and his brother (future H) was in town for the holiday. He was very quiet and shy. About an hour in, sitting across from him - I asked him if he "ever fucking said anything" (this part kind of makes me chuckle now, considering he still doesn't really say anything).
Another time - a year later - everyone was rolling on MDMA and I didn't because I had to get up early and was watching my football game and yelling at the screen the entire time I hung out at that party.
A couple more times over the next year I would see him and my future BIL and SIL kept trying to get us together, but I wasn't interested. One night at their house, we sat on their patio and talked and talked and talked. And then, I attacked him. He said he seduced me, but he was not slick at all and so, I played along.
High school tenth grade. My best friend says "Look at that girl standing there. Wow, she is pretty and has great tits. Her name is Shewhoshallnotbenamed and she is in 8th grade". Yes, 15 year old boys talk that way, even the ones hanging around with your daughters. Fast foward a year and my then GF wants to introduce me to her best friend. Yep, Shewhoshallnotbenamed. Two weeks later I break up with GF. The week after I ask Shewhoshallnotbenamed out.

OKCupid. First date was an awkward disaster, but we'd been chatting via gchat for a little bit before the date, and continued chatting from time to time, because she was witty and funny.
About six weeks later she invited me to see an exhibit at a museum. We went to dinner after, kept talking, ended up at a bar after that, and three Old Fashioneds each later, we were making out on a couch. She invited me back to her place, and we fooled around, even though no sex happened for a few months still.
Met on internet - 7 (24%) Met at school/college/uni - 7 (24%) Met at social group - 4 (14%) Met at work - 4 (14%) Met at a bar - 2 (7%) Met at a party - 2 (7%) Met via want adds in paper - 2 (7%) Met by speed dating - 1 (3%)
We both worked in the same place. We had a chance encounter in a bar after work. He was with a friend who also worked there. It was the best evening of my life. I had two handsome men vying for my attention. I knew one of them would be calling me, I just didn't know which one. I still think I got the right one.
eHarmony, where you are matched based on 29 dimensions of compatibility. Except sex. 😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒
Same for me, I met her on eHarmony. We were reasonably matched for sex when we met. She like to have orgasm and I loved to give them and she didn't mind if I had my share if I managed without too much fuss or creativity from her. That was ok as I love giving oral and using my hands and toys and all. I guess the 30th dimension should have been, Do you expect anything in return for the effort you give?

bfar: Petrushka... I'm just wondering if we shot ourselves in the foot, as it were, by giving giving up on our strength, and giving in to the feminist agenda of making men irrelevant.

petrushka: Sorry, I don't buy into that at all. I'm not giving up anything. I've been into the "feminist agenda" for nearly 60 years. Having an empowered partner empowers me. I want strong women around me who take responsibility for themselves and who can face me

petrushka: I see 'strong men', and controlling bullies, as basically weak, lacking confidence and self esteem -- hence they think they need to assert themselves that way. I loathe patriarchy as much as matriarchy. Partners should be equals.

apocrypha: The "feminist agenda" has changed across the past 60 years. Some feminists of the 60's call the current iteration "fainting couch feminism", thinking it a subversion and betrayal of women's lib. Hard to get a bead on what folks think, using a broad label.

apocrypha: No aspect of that article (which I amount to a magazine offering bad diet advice) promotes rape, coercion (beyond seduction), sexual assault, and I don't understand your public performance suggesting that they would be and thus implicating bfar.

mirrororchid: pfar, being sensitive means understanding how others think and feel. It doesn't mean you are compelled to adopt their thoughts and feelings. This is a matter of understanding people including loved ones. If you aren't sensitive, you lack tools to

mirrororchid: live well. You need not soften, but you should be able to understand vulnerability. Recognizing others' distress provides me with cues when I need to use self-control or extend help. If you're strong, you should be helping others. Use what works.
