I have been in a year and a half dryspell, last GF lasted almost 2 years. Most of the time was my choice, I had other issues to work out and did not want to get anyone else wrapped up in them. The rest of the time was due to where I was at (living at home, working constantly in a job with mostly people over 35, etc). Now I am back at college and all of my friends are in relationships. Between how long it has been (I'm fucking tired of being lonely) and always having the 3rd wheel feeling whenever I hang out I am trying to get back into a new relationship. A couple of my good friends and roomates know this and are trying to help me out, but they seem to be focused on helping me find someone at a party or a bar. Personally I have never met a girl at a party that anything happened with. All of my GF I have met through friends, in just normal life, and have all turned into LTRs. While at this point I would not turn down a one night stand, I would really prefer to find someone for a meaningful relationship, and I don't seem to see this happening at a party. Am I wrong, and should I just pick up chicks drunk, or look harder during day to day shit? Oh and what are some good ways to start a convo at a party, i freakin suck at it?
