How to meet people?



Recommended Posts

Where do you go to meet people? I’m not a bar or club person. And I live in a fairly remote area. Do people still use Match.com or anything? I’m not necessarily looking for something super serious but the last time I was on one of those sites it seemed to be full of people who never wanted to meet or I’d just get random inappropriate pictures.

Some years ago, I did the online dating thing and had some success. Since becoming obese and dealing with depression, I sidelined the dating effort. eHarmony and Match.com are always worth a try. My last long term relationship began with an eHarmony date. If you feel adventurous, you could try craigslist. I once met someone and had a 2 month relationship which was fun while it lasted.

I was wondering about this too. I do not get out much, just work and home. I have been single for almost 14 years so I don't know if it will ever happen, but I thought maybe in a year or so I would have a chance.

I met my boyfriend on Tinder, but the sites that worked best for me (I live in NC) were plenty of fish, tinder, zoosk, and Ok Cupid. They seemed to have the least fake profiles.

I wasn't lucky with match or eharmony.

I also met some great people through "meetup" which is really a group activities app, dinner clubs, sports, biking, etc.

It's all trial and error. Take your time, have fun and use the various apps to help build confidence.

I met the fella who is now my husband on okcupid. I liked it because it was free and asked a ton of compatibility questions.

      My life is WONDERFUL

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
