One has met quite a few people from this site. Indeed some that one has actually had a relationship with. A few on this very thread one has met. Although not in relationship terms.
One hasn't given up the thought of a relationship or meeting someone whom one feels is special. It is just unlikely, at present, given one's own personal circumstances. And the spectre of those who find it beyond them - although outward appearances might convince otherwise - to be entirely candid. Or to somehow exclude vital details after one is left haplessly chewing on the bait offered.
