I need some advice. I hardly have any friends. I am very shy when it comes to meeting new people, but I want a girlfriend. I have a very successful career and all I am missing is a girlfriend. I am very well off for my age and make pretty good money. Where can I meet my future soul mate? I don't go to bars and am not much of a drinker. I don't date girls at work. Online dating has not worked for me either. Any suggestions?

you are making one crucial mistake. you are looking for a date while trying to avoid "pickup locations." you sound like a nice guy who is trying to settle down a little and have a companion to do it with. don't look for a girlfriend, that comes in time by just meeting people and eventually you just find yourself clicking with a girl. Instead start by going out to places that you enjoy or that you might enjoy. and talk to a few people as you see an opportunity.
There is a place called Breakout Games where i live that puts you in a room with strangers and you spend an hour trying to escape. i have met several new friends that way.
You said you don't date coworkers, while that is generally a good idea don't exclude them from being your friends. hanging out or catching lunch with a coworker can occasionally lead to you meeting other friends of theirs who you might get along with as well.1
