Because I can't seem to find one! I'm patiently waiting to just bump into 'the one', but so far it's not working out. Is online dating the way to go? Tinder?!

No, it's very unlikely you'd meet someone who wants a relationship there.

What are your interests?

For 5 years I've been anticipating finding someone in the supermarket, as it's not happened I think I need to start going to the pub again....

Try OKCupid, it's free online dating.

I met my mrs through there and haven't looked back smile

It is not very unlikely you'd meet a man who wants a relationshop on Tinder.

The dismissal of Tinder as "just for hookups" is myth perpetuated largely by people who don't use it.

Tinder has a very large userbase, some of whom want just sex, or just to message and never meet, or even just to match as an ego boost and never message, but some of them want relationships.

Waiting patiently to bump into "the one" is not a very useful strategy unless your everyday life include a lot of activities where you meet new people, are aware of their relationship status, and it is not inappropriate for you to try to get to know them better.

I think you'll find that's an oxymoron. hmm

I think looking for "the one" is a mistake

Trills right and I get pissed off, especially on MN that its often refered to as a hook up site, usually by people who haven't used it. I've found Tinder really good and have had lots of dates from it. Like most OLD sites there are the ones who are only after sex, but they're usually very open and upfront about it. Give it a go OP
