I've been pretty sad lately. I have a great job, just purchased a brand new Mustang, got a nice luxury apartment, I'm in peak shape and I dress really well. Needless to say, I am really happy with the way my life turned out... but there is a huge hole in my heart.
Never had a girlfriend in my life and I keep going to bars/clubs to meet women... but it never works out. And when I see all these cute couples it just makes me tear up sometime. It would be nice to have a meaningful relationship with a woman.
So, I come here to ask: How did you meet your BF or GF? Did your partner approach you first? Did you approach first? Did you meet through friends?

My first deployment, South Korea. It was day number one of official duty and I was just getting ready to go out to work on the jets when I got a phone call. It was my sister's fiancé telling me that one of my close friends had died by vehicular homicide while riding a bicycle with his wife and he was first on the scene. I hid away and cried a bit, then reappeared for work like nothing happened.
I happened to be deployed with a guy I see at the shop sometimes. We had flirted back and forth at home station but I never thought much of him, just another attractive asshole. Someone nice to look at but not date material. I was on a trip to the convenience store on base to get snacks when he passed his phone over to me and asked for my phone number. Not really giving a shit about anything after the news that morning, I gave it to him without a second thought. And instead of picking on me or flirting like I thought he would, he asked what was wrong.
We talked all day, he told me a tragic story of his own and said he understood how I felt, he made me laugh and smile a little bit too... And I decided that he really wasn't an asshole. He became my best friend and closest alli in that week. The next week he was more of a romantic interest, and then a boyfriend.
Looking back it was kind of dangerous to become involved with someone while grieving, but I lucked out.0
