Obviously I am coming at this issue from the other gender direction, but I found my first wife when I went to a restaurant with a friend on New Years Eve, and even though it was very busy the waitress serving the table found time to chat a little while taking the orders and serving the food, She gave me her phone number, saying she'd like to talk later if I wanted to. We ended up getting married 11 months later. We had two kids (now grown up with kids of their own) and the marriage lasted 13 years. It ended in divorce, but there were many happy times.
My second wife was conducting telephone surveys, and we just clicked - she asked whether it would be ok if we had a chat after she'd finished the survey since I was the last one for the day. We chatted, got to know each other, lived together for about 10 months then got married. She died after a long battle with cancer earlier this year after 17 years of marriage,
Without going into the precise circumstances, I believe have found someone else, also meeting her in her work capacity, and I am hopeful that too will in due course result in a long term relationship.
As someone said you don't necessarily find love by going out looking for it (that can end up making you feel depressed and disheartened) When the time is right, and you are least expecting it, love will find you ...
