Straight up, how do I meet somebody? I know it's something I can't force, but I'd really like to at least try and meet someone.
What are your opinions of online dating? Is it a desperate way to find a date?

You just need to put yourself out there. Go out with friends, take up a new hobby, etc. If you're surrounding yourself with people who share similar interests to you then you'll eventually find somebody interesting.
I dislike online dating. I think that so much of developing attraction and rapport with somebody is physical (not just touch, but through seeing how they move, speak, and picking up on all sorts of non-verbal cues). It's obviously successful for some people, but it's really not for me. I think one of the reasons that I have such a strong bond with my girlfriend is because all of our early interaction before we got together was in person. No texts or Facebook or anything like that. The corny part of me also can't help but dismiss online dating as not being very romantic as well, haha. I'd feel a bit embarrassed saying it if people asked me how I met my partner.0
