I wonder, have you never gone to a bar or a club, joined an Internet dating or social networking site, or even attended church or an outdoor farmer's market or anywhere else with the aim of possibly meeting someone? And what the flip is the difference? Maybe you're one of those self-deluded people who thinks that nothing they've ever done has ever been about that, even while realistically virtually everything everyone ever does is about that at some level. But still, why do you feel so superior meeting people in some other way or at some other place? Get off your high horse. It's not a good look.
