I've heard it said, that when it comes to finding people we like to date, that people try to go one of two ways: either take your chances by meeting people you don't know, or "sorting" out the kind of people available and picking from that smaller group. What does everyone else think?

I have always dated guys who were in my group of friends. A friend of a friend someone brought along who I got to know over time and grew to like because I saw him in a natural social environment instead of a dating environment where he is under pressure.
None of my relationships where I have said "yes" to a random guy who's asked me out have ever worked out, and I never made it past the "awkward getting to know you" phase.
I like to get to know people without pressure or obligation to like them, decide that I like them, and THEN pursue a relationship1

I think the women are lying that voted for best friends. I've only ever found real connections with people after becoming friends with them. That's the only way I've ever found honesty in personality, anything else is an act.1
