People Are Sharing Dating Advice for Those Who Think They're Doomed in Love and It's Honestly Reassuring AF

By Pippa Raga

Have you ever wondered why that amazing person you know from work (or church or the gym or your morning coffee joint) doesn't seem to notice you? Do you find yourself on a Friday evening cuddled up with Spots, your rescue mutt, wishing for person-sized arms to wrap around yourself instead? 

The movies make finding love look so undeniably simple. The main character heartthrob pretty much just has to remember to breathe, and BAM! a gorgeous significant other falls from a tree and now they're united for life.

But ask any actual human, and they'll be quick to point out that there is no tried-and-true, one-size-fits-all method for finding the One. 

These redditors don't have a secret formula, but each of them shares how they found love in a hopeless place, so to speak.

1. There are plenty of fish in the sea, but you're not going to find them if you live in a pond.

"Keep putting yourself out there. You're not gonna meet your future [someone] by sitting at home alone (unless it's the food delivery person I guess). Even if you only have one friend (or none) who is available that day and can join you, still try to go to concerts, bars, bookstores, restaurants, etc. alone.
Also just because things don't happen romantically with someone doesn't mean cut them off. Sometimes people are meant to just be a fun friend/acquaintance and you can expand your social circle through them, and meet a romantic partner from that."
