On the surface, Portland seems like the perfect place to meet people.
We’re a bustling little city filled with tons (okay, maybe a couple dozen) interesting young single people. Big networking events are so overwhelming that having a genuine (and audible) conversation is nearly impossible (sorry Greendrinks and First Friday).
Basing this on some mighty lonely experiences living alone in the big city and essentially working my butt off, I found it almost impossible meeting someone.
Working in retail in Soho, the most amount of interaction I had with the opposite sex were usually gay. It was just one of the biggest dry spells I had and all I wanted was to be adored and wined and dined. I didn’t think I was ugly and I do usually have some confidence when it comes to dating.
You may have hundreds of Facebook or Linked In friends, but how many of them have you met in person?
