    I'm asking because I get quite a lot of one night stands in clubs etc, but I want a relationship now and girls don't seem to take me seriously if I want to date them. I notice that friends play the waiting game, going to house parties, socialising with girls and being friendly and then they meet one girl, have a chat before you know it they are serious and acting like a married couple.

    I can't speak for the rest of them, but I met my boyfriend at a dance; he asked for my number and within a couple of weeks we were dating exclusively. Two years later we're still together; it's clearly not impossible to get a proper relationship with new girls.

    i only date new girls. Dating within a social circle is a bit **** really. You end up with friendcest and seeing some girl more than one of your friends have been with. It's kind of icky.

    I only date outside my social circle tbh. I met my bf at the pub, he put a rather obscure song on the jukebox I loved and we just hit it off.

    I think it's alot easier to meet partners within a same friendship circle, although it definitely has a bit of 'friendcest' feel, if your friendship group is big enough it's fine. I know amongst my uni friends, there was originally only 6 of us girls, then my friend met her boyfriend on her course, then we met all of his friends, housemates etc and the group just got bigger and bigger and we all eventually found our boyfriends that way, it gives a better opportunity to meet people.

    I always thought I'd want a boyfriend outside of all of that because it can feel like you're getting into a relationship with 10 other people who want to stick their noses in at times, but I just find the 'random' meeting process awkward and it doesn't get very far, especially in clubs and the like.

    Personally, all my relationships bar one have been within my social circle. The one that wasn't was a bit of a disaster.
